Matt Lauer & Natalie Morales Are Still Going Strong


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.

That photo portrays everything I already think about Matt. He's a smarmy, self indulgent douche.

Unknown said...

Why has his wife stayed with him despite the very public mistresses? $$$$$$$$. Just a guess.

Patty said...

I heard this somewhere before, can't put my finger on it exactly, but I believe the word used to describe him was "glib"

NapAssasin said...

Smarmy. Perfect word.

Amber said...

Every time I see Matt Lauer, I think it's Michael Lohan. Then I picture him posing in a mesh shirt.

Now excuse me while I go scrub my lady bits with bleach and a Brillo pad.

auntliddy said...

Ummmm, he doesnt have a wholesome image! And can we talk about the wildly unflattering haircut? Ears, anyone? You never see him out with kids or wife. He never mentions them. He turned into a mini bryant g- nasty, mysongonist, arrogant know it all. Why his wife stays with him is beyond me.

rejectedcarebear said...

She stays with for that $$$

surfer said...

Auntliddy - there have been lots of pictures with Matt and his family; also, yesterday he mentioned that it was his son's 11th birthday. As for his hair, he doesn't have a whole lot of it, so I guess there's not a whole lot he can do about that.

carolinec said...

i thought he was a swarmy arrogant ass after he interviewed Christie Brinkley. He showed no compassion towards her and frankly, i thought he was badgering her with unnecessary questions. it was clear he didnt believe a word she said on emotional abuse.. now that i think about it, its probably bc HE is emotionally abusive.

Get outta of here Matt Lauer! You ol' skank!

ok, i'm done.

anita_mark said...

If she hasn't left him yet, it's doubtful she'll do it now.

Assuming this is all true, of course.

bethany said...

Am I the only one who would bang the crap out of him? I think Matt is totally charming and hilarious. And let's be frank, what man doesn't cheat?

Mamaroni said...

Hahahaha

Seachica said...

@bethany -- lots of good men don't cheat. I don't believe we should hold celebrities to any different stsndard than we hold regular men.

Jennifer H. said...

I used to like him a lot, but he's either shown himself for the arrogant ass he has always been or he's gradually de-evolved into one. Either way, he's an arrogant ass now.

I think the male co-anchor chair on "Today" traditionally becomes so egotistical because they become so comfortable. They know they are basically untouchable because any show problems will be blamed on the women.

crila16 said...

Didn't he have more than one lover? His wife better smarten up and leave the bastard pig. She'll get a lot of money in the divorce. That will soothe any sorrow she may be feeling. He's also ugly and geeky looking, so she could do far better.

Yes the Kardashian ban...I have been praying for it!!!!
@Bethany...not all men cheat. that is the stupidest comment I have ever heard. I don't get why Matt Lauer makes $30 mil a year. He's nothing special, does an ok interview but not any better than anyone else, runs the place like he's king sleeping with this one and that one and being allowed to determine the fate of others like Ann Curry. I don't know why he gets that kind of power and what he did to earn it, but I don't enjoy him at all. If the wife stays for the money she's nuts. He makes so much money she'll have to worry? I don't think so.

A couple o years back i was at bergdorf's buying xmas presents. Ran into matt & his mrs. I never saw a more miserable looking pair.

Paisley said...

Didn't she file a few years ago when she was pregnant with their last child? It was withdrawn pretty quickly. Maybe she got paid back then to stay.

car54 said...

I used to like Matt's on-screen persona but it bugs me that his personal predelictions are controlling the future of a historic show like Today.

But he's not the only one to snark on....Natalie is married with kids and Giada is too....so everyone is cheating in this situation.

I am not sure why she stays--she would get plenty of money if she left--probably for their kids--I think he is a pretty devoted father.

I watched briefly this morning --just for a second and Ann looks like a whipped dog--she keeps her head down when they are all together as if she can't look any of them in the eye. They need to let her move on--putting her through this is mean.

ms snarky said...

good lord, is there ANYONE Giada doesn't use her personal best talent on?

bethany said...

@Seachica and @jg610 - I was being facetious, jeeze. That being said, I am honored to have made the stupidest comment you have ever heard! And to think this Wednesday was turning out to be just another regular day.

Sunny said...

Someone always brings this up in comments when infidelity is discussed, but maybe they have an open marriage based on discretion??

It can be really hard on young children when parents split up (no need to go into the obvious details why), so maybe if this story is true his wife thinks that Natalie is someone that Matt could fall in love with and therefore leave her for? Only they know

As far as Matt, he definitely has gotten that Bryant Gumbel smugness about him. I miss the warmth and charm of Charlie Gibson and Diane Sawyer together on Good Morning America. Those 2 were super cool together :)

Unknown said...

Was there ever any more traction to the suspicion that Natalie's youngest is actually Matt's kid?

Mojees said...

Hah! Zing!

Agent**It said...

@Sunny,I used to be the night manager of a hotel in SE FL (one of my many desperation jobs).Mr.Smug and OJ (yes, that one) stayed there during a golf charity tournament.Their instructions re what to say and whom to put through to their rooms when various women called was so lengthy, I had to write it all down to keep it straight. They "pre-tipped" me $500.00 to ensure discretion.(Not uncommon).Larry Flynt(Hustler) also stayed there.But my favorite guest was Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain, one of the nicest sports guys I ever met.

Tr├ębuchet said...

He's passing Tom Cruise on my hate-meter. (Well, ha, not really, but he's gettin close.) Then again, I've never really liked him on today; it's just gotten worse here lately.

Liz said...

I don't think he and his wife live together, at least during the week. A magazine did a feature on this beautiful home they have out in Long Island. The pics shown only had the kids and his wife, Annette.

Sunny said...

@Agent
Ugh! No way!!!!! And funny about Wilt -- maybe he was hoping to get some from you :) hee hee

Agent**It said...

Well, now that I think of it, he was 7'1" and I am 5'2", naughty me:)

califblondy said...

I still like him okay. If I hated him based on his cheating, I'd have to hate way too many people. If he was mean to Christie Brinkly, then I like him even more. Now, there's a woman who needs to get the eff over it already.

Matt and his wife have kids, been married a long time, and maybe they have an understanding? Hell, we don't know what she does do we? There are worse things to happen in a marriage than infidelity.

Beth said...

I'm in the minority -- I still like him.

Anyway, I saw this article and thought it was interesting. Apparently, Natalie is threatening to quit if she doesn't get the co-host gig.

http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/entertainment/2012/06/27/natalie-morales-rumored-to-leave-today-if-savannah-guthrie-gets-co-host-gig/

I guess Matt gets less ass either way.

Josie said...

He lives in NYC (actually, he lives in my neighborhood and I often see him walking around) while his wife and kids live in the Hamptons, and he goes out there on the weekend. They say it's for the schools and more relaxed social life for the kids.

But affair or not, Natalie is also married so why all the blame only for the man?

Who knows why Matt and his wife stay married. But you know what they say, "Marry for money and you'll earn every penny."

sussique said...

Amber wash your "lady bits" with what the fuck? Wow.

CarolMR said...

Matt does NOT have a wholesome image. And I think Amy Robach was another girlfriend of his. I think he got her fired because she wouldn't leave him alone after he dumped her. Nice guy. The Today Show's ratings aren't all that great. Why does he wield so much power? They should replace him, not Ann.

Ingrid Superstar said...

I hope Wilt Chamberlin is a nice guy, after getting all that action!

Mango said...

He makes $30 million a year? Holy fuckcakes. NOW we know why his wife stays with him. Bonus: she only has to put up with him on the weekends.

violet said...

@ Josie I have neer heard thate line of "Marry for money and you'll earn every penny." But WOW it sure does make sense. SO not worth it. Misery sure seems expensive.

Agent**It said...

@Ingrid, I will always remember how calm and zen like he was. Guess all the action calmed him down !

Popcorn Sutton said...

@Unknown - I don't think either of Natalie's kids are Matt Lauer spawn. I looked up pictures and they look a lot like their dad, her husband.

I'm curious where all of these rumors started about Matt Lauer having affairs with his co-anchors. I can't imagine he is cheating with Natalie, Savannah, Amy and Giada. I mean, maybe, but probably not in all likelihood.

Jessie said...

That photo reminds me of one of the photos of George Bluth and Kitty in Arrested Development.

Henriette said...

I still say Matt's true love is Katie Couric. He was really into her. I wouldn't be surprised if they still have something going on.

I find Matt sexy and smug:)

I think he has a whore/madonna complex. Now that he has kids, he doesn't want his wife sexually. It happens a lot.

B said...

@jennifer h:sooooo true!

Me said...

why does his wife stay? my god, their kids are getting an interesting example of marriage.

ecua said...

New Today Show segment:
"Who in the World is Matt Lauer Fucking?"

He all kinds of yucky. Can't his wife just divorce him and get half of everything?

christopher said...

I wept so hard for you this morning Ann but then I heard about this rumor about Matt boinking Natalie and something about Matt's wife looking for a guillotine to chop off his peen cause that bixch makes it look at the wrong things. Just between you and me Ann I think Matt is in deep kaka too....

Lelaina Pierce said...

I had no idea he made $30mil.

If they have an understsnding, then I'm with Mango. ;)

Bobbie said...

There are many good wholesome men; Lauer IS NOT one of them! He is a womanizer besides being arrogant, etc., etc., etc. Far from being wholesome! He is a pure bald old man w/no class!
