Bryant Gumbel & Al Roker: Leave Matt Lauer Alone!

by at . Comments

Bryant Gumbel and Al Roker – friends and Today colleagues of Matt Lauer – say the TV anchor and his wife Annette Roque seem fine ... and to back off!

Echoing the couple's own angry denials of a breakup, Gumbel said: "Nobody likes being under a microscope, even in the best of times. It's not pleasant."

"I think they're doing fine. They just stay away from the glare."

Gumbel's wife Hilary also spoke in support of the Lauers: "They've made their rebuttal [to the accusations] ... They've done what they needed to do."

Lauer was said to be having an affair, and Alexis Houston (alleged sister of Whitney) was alleged to be the other woman involved in the scandal.

Today weatherman Al Roker says he doesn't believe rumors.

Matt, Annette Lauer

Matt and Annette Lauer have denied cheating allegations.

"All I know is that he's great," Roker said. "I've seen him. They're fine. It's more about things on the outside. Everything on the inside is fine."

Matt Lauer and his wife, married since 1998, blasted a report alleging that Lauer had moved out of the family's apartment amid reports of infidelity.

According to the report, the sexy beast was also looking for his own bachelor pad. He told People last week that the story was "a work of fiction."

While acknowledging vaguely the imperfections in his marriage, Lauer denied the details of the report and says everything is fine with Annette.

We hope so. The couple has three kids under the age of 10.
