“I went out on a couple of dates,” Gifford said. “I just went out with friends to a club to hear my favorite band down there. This sweet guy asked me to dance and I said, 'OK'."
She admitted, "It was fun because I hadn’t been on a date in 33 years. It’s surreal. The world has changed so much. He was a gentleman. It was fine, it was fun.”
