It's bad enough that he's going to soil my favorite morning show, but now this guy wants studio 1A's coveted dressing room?
As Natalie Morales prepares to move to California as Today's West Coast editor (as well as the host of Access Hollywood and contributor to Dateline), Billy Bush will serve as an achor on the 9am slot, starting with August's Rio Olympics.
Sources tell Page Six that Bush thinks his new position comes with Morales' dressing room, the only other standalone room aside from Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie's on the highly sought-after third floor.
And while the room “is so small the clothing rack is outside,” floor three is where the cool kids hang out.
"Billy is assuming he will get Natalie’s dressing room,” a source said.
Well he is assuming wrong! Poor Willie Geist either "sits in the makeup room" or “wanders around when he’s not in a segment. Willie has nothing — so the only room for him would be Natalie’s."
ILY, Willie Geist.
No one else but Morales, Guthrie and Lauer have dressing rooms.
“The building was built in the ’20s, and everyone is making do with a small, tiny, little space," the source explained of 30 Rockefeller Center.
While Bush has his eyes on the biggest little closet in the building, Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford and Carson Daly make do with a "makeshift space" in the studio's basement. Sources say it's not as scary as it sounds, since it got a facelift last year, but it's the basement.
Kotb would like to move up to the third floor, as would Bush's cousin, Jenna Bush Hager.
Hager is merely a correspondent, other sources pointed out, and shouldn't get first dibs on Morales' dressing room.
If you ask me, Hager is lucky to have a job, let alone a damn closet to change in.
Page Six spoke to another source who clarified that everyone is getting ahead of themselves.
“No one has even thought about this . . . Natalie is still here for the summer.”
Morales will make the move to California after the Summer Olympics, which wrap on August 21st.
