Matt Lauer Divorce: Averted by Savannah Guthrie Announcement!

by at . Comments

Ann Curry is out as co-host of The Today Show, Savannah Guthrie is in and Matt Laurer's marriage is safe.

Wait... what?!?

The National Enquirer claims Lauer's wife, Annette Roque, was very concerned that her husband was pushing for long-time correspondent Natalie Morales to take over the seat next to him every morning, a situation that allegedly would have led to Roque filing for divorce.

Why? Well, take a look at Morales...

"When she heard about Ann getting the boot, the first thing she told Matt was she didn't want him cozying up any closer to Natalie," a tabloid source said of Lauer and Roque.

"In fact, Annette drew a line in the sand and said if he pushed show bosses to make Natalie his new co-host, she'd divorce him."

This isn't the first time that split rumors have sprung up between this couple.

In May 2010, insiders also told the Enquirer that Lauer was having an affair. Nothing came of the story, the marriage remained intact and now, thanks to the hiring of Guthrie, it appears as if the same applies here.

Savannah is an immature child and Matt, who never improves and continues to act like a fool ....... please just get rid of him. Ann Curry wasn't the best but she certainly conducted herself as a professional and a Lady!

Must agree with all the other like comments. Matt is acting the proper fop with the crossed legs and the "I am great" condescending "look at me" attitude. Freak is a good word. This show is on the downhill slide to puke city. Yuck!

Used to like the Meredith, Matt, Al combo...Anne Currie was good also, in a news type persona way-- such as Diane Sawyer. News by news people. What a concept. Then Matt became NBC's Wonderboy and it all started to change. His ego started interfering with the show itself. Too bad about that. A very uncomfortable "vibe" between the new group. Guthrie was ok as a financial analyst. Morales may be looking a Al Roaker's weather job next. Then the "threesome" can play at who looks prettier. Who knows?
The most unenjoyable Olympics show to watch--ever. Hopefully over soon and I can turn the channel and watch an professional and informative show again.
And NBC: may Karma strike you 10x10 for the way you handled the Anne Currie firing. No class, No respect, No maturity.
Understand you like the cute young girls, but not for this format. You should have studied your audience better.

Because the olympics are on this channel, I have been having to endure the new NBC "cute young things" and Matt fawning over them. Both Savannah and Morales should be on Entertainment tonight--with their short skirts and sitting on top of Matt (more like he is gushing all over them). Not the format I want for my news. It was soooo refreshing when Meredith is on and interviewing again....Love the looks of the girls, but neither has good interview skills--Savannah keeps abrasively interrupting when someone is talking to her.. Disgusting! And, as for Matt's wife, whatever, probably the boy believes himself a Romeo rather than is one...but good luck with that. Olympics over, Good Morning America here I come.

Watched Matt in London - what a jaded, arrogant freak. I was shocked. I haven't watched the show much lately since I work. But NBC should have left him home and sent someone who could say something positive and not complain so much.

Get a grip on yourselves. Ann Curry wasn't that good. She always spoke at a whisper and you could hardly hear what she was saying. She made out pretty good at 10Mil. I became bored watching her. Savannah is a breath of fresh air. Attractive, intelligent and takes her job seriously. I like Natalie Morales she's a beautiful women and does her job professionally. I thought she should have had the chance at Ann's job. Matt Lauer is good, but does act like a dog in heat. Al Roker, your all right he's a weatherman with dumb jokes. Meredith Viera is the best she is missed.

I can't watch the today show any longer, Matt Lauer acts like he is having an affair with every women on the show...so I went to "ask" this morning and guess what, looks like I was right.

NBC YOU REALLY MADE A BIG MISTAKE REMOVING ANN CURRY FROM THE TODAY SHOW. SHE WAS THE FACE EVERYONE TRUSTED AND BELIEVED IN. I TRIED TO CONTINUE WATCHING THE TODAY SHOW LIKE I HAVE MOST OF MY ADULT LIFE BUT IT'S NOT WORKING FOR ME ANYMORE. I AM NOW WATCHING GMA.

For the first time in my life I am offering my opinion regarding a television personality issue. I agree with all who think that Ann Curry's departure from The Today show was a grave error in judgment. I have been a loyal viewer for over twenty years. I have not watched nor do I intend to ever watch The Today Show again. Ann is beautiful, professional and has a depth of understanding and empathy far beyond anyone else on that staff. Young women especially need role models like Ann Curry. I wish I could contact her personally and express my admiration. AC
