TV Query: Did Meredith Vieira say she's detox-ing on 'Today'?

meredithvieira_today_video_290.jpg "Today" co-anchor Meredith Vieira can't celebrate with a little tipple right now. She's going through detox.

Vieira, 55, revealed the information to Martha Stewart on the "Today" show Halloween cooking segment Thursday, Oct. 1 when Stewart offered her a glass of wine. Although Vieira accepted the glass, she didn't drink.

"I'm not allowed to drink right now," she said, and when Stewart asked why, responded, "I told you, I'm on a detox."

A little later she added, "I'm not drinking right now. Can't you tell? I'm much nicer. Haven't you seen that?"

The banter continued, and Stewart thanked Vieira for actually seeming interested in the recipes showcased.

"I was interested. It'll all change when I'm drinking again," Vieira joked.
