Kathie Lee Gifford -- whose own marriage was put to the test when her husband Frank had a 1997 fling with a flight attendant -- has a message for embattled reality star Kate Gosselin.

"I would turn off the cameras if I were them and just work on healing together as a family," Gifford told Usmagazine.com Monday at a spring gala for the American Theatre Wing in NYC. "Who knows the long-term damage something like this could do? I understand they are making a living, but you have to wonder at what price."

Jon has apologized for his "actions" with 23-year-old school teacher Deanna Hummell; Kate has even gone as far as saying she and Jon may divorce. Their troubles continued last week when the Pennsylvania labor department confirmed it is investigating whether the couple's TLC show is complying with the state's child labor laws.

Despite her concerns for the family, Gifford said she hasn't been keeping up with all the Gosselin's day-to-day drama.

"I have to say no," she told Us. "Frank and I are probably the only two people in America avoiding that show. We are not reality fans and prefer to live reality. We sure don't want cameras following us around and picking on us!"
