Comments: Hearing things

We heard that too and concluded that she was nervous and got confused. Or not.

It seems she was trying to say "my husband and daughter" and her brain short-circuited.

That makes more sense. "My husband and my girlfriend" I could have seen, but "my husband and my wife" seemed a little unlikely.

Saw your Domino's post headline on Newsnow/current affairs/US. ...and then this post. Searched "Cathy Schulman" +"wife" on Blog Pulse and found folks discussing this, (and at length in Comments), on this blog as well:

My thought: maybe she said "my husband, my strife"? (But then I guess that could be because he's constantly refers to her as one of his "bi babes".) Reminds me of fun with misheard lyrics.

Just a slip of the tongue. Please also note Philip Seymour Hoffman's misuse of "literally."

I think some people just can't speak off-script. Like the president.

True story: My ex-girlfriend Connie had two older sisters, Karen and Kathy. One day Karen met our friend Curt (I'm using real names to protect the innocent), and accidentally (and mistakenly) introduced herself to him as Kathy.
