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