On Wednesday’s episode of The Morning Show, the TV personalities celebrated the launch of Emdur’s memoir Happy As Larry, which was just released.
Gillies shared with the audience her favorite line from the book, asking Emdur to “shed some light on it”.
“We just clicked, and we’ve never unclicked,” was the line Gillies chose.
“That’s about us Kylie, that’s about you,” Emdur laughed.
“The only line in the book to read out on TV of course I would make it about me,” she said.
“No, no, no, that is about us, it’s about the first time we sat on The Morning Show couch for our audition, and how we looked into each other’s eyes and we just smiled, we laughed, we had fun, and we ‘ve never stopped doing that,” Emdur explained.
“And I wrote this to you in the cover of your book: This show and you are such an important part of all of this.
“All of this, all of these silly little stories over the last 40 years has led to this,” he said, referring to their partnership.
“And I am so grateful for you and this show. And we just clicked and we’ve never unclicked.”
Hearing Emdur’s sweet words, Gillies was overcome with emotion as she said, “aw how can I make fun of that now because that was really nice!”
“Well it’s true, it’s true,” Emdur said.
‘Most fulfilling chapter of my life’
“I mean, all this stuff it’s all about me growing up and me as a kid.”
“This was about growing up and nostalgia and getting to a certain point in my life, and that point was 15 to 20 years ago and that’s when this started.”
Emdur said that his time on The Morning Show has been “the best and most fulfilling chapter of my life and work life and our partnership started and that’s very special”.
Gillies responded, “Aw that’s so nice, that’s gorgeous.
“When you started off with the words ‘couch and audition’ I was wondering where you were going with that. Glad it turned out really nice.”
“But you got the job, so well done,” Emdur joked.
“That’s all that counts,” Gillies added.
