Apparently Matt Lauer's wife, Annette Roque, told Matt she would leave him if Natalie Morales became the co-host of Today so that he better do everything in his power to make sure it didn't happen. I don't know how Annette has stayed married to Matt this long. It seems to me that she has pretty much been worn out since day one of the marriage. There was that whole period of time where she didn't eat and then she has to watch her husband cheat on her. With Natalie. The next thing you know if they become co-hosts then they are traveling all over the world together like they did when they went to Italy and had Annette free time. So, according to The Enquirer, if Natalie got the co-host job then Annette was going to say buh bye to Matt and that would have been a mess and everything would come out and then Matt would lose that wholesome image he always try to portray.
