America's heard all about Cassidy Gifford thanks to mom Kathie Lee's anecdotes on Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee

So what Today show on-air overshare embarrassed the up-and-coming actress the most? 

"Oh my god, don't get me started!" Cassidy, 21, says in the latest issue of PEOPLE, quipping, "I can't even watch the show anymore."

As it turns out, her mom'smorning-show antics haven't just mortified her – they almost cost her her breakout role in the horror film The Gallows


"One time I called her, and she just happened to have her phone for a Todayshow segment and held it up and was like, 'Oh, Cassidy's calling me!' She opens up her old, little, dinosaur flip phone, and of course the cameras zoom in, and there was my number! All of a sudden I had hundreds of creepy texts," Cassidy recalls. "Like, 'Really, Mom?!' " 

Cassidy, who was going to the University of Southern California and just launching her acting career at the time, says she almost didn't get her first leading role in the found-footage flick. 

"That was right before I went to do my audition for The Gallows, and I almost didn't get the film because of that: They just wanted to do a cast of unknowns," she says. "So that was a huge thing going on, whether they'd give me the role or not: Whether or not she could keep her mouth shut." 

Thankfully for Cassidy's career, chatty Kathie Lee "has proven that she kind of can, at least for a little bit!"
