Matt Lauer is getting more than just a huge, $25 million dollar contract for doing the Today show, he’s also getting called names!
According to TMZ, Matt can’t walk down the streets of Manhattan without someone belittling and berating him for getting Ann Curry kicked off the show. A source at the network says he’s “miserable” over what he believes are hateful and unfair tirades. Matt says the harassment is constant, with people screaming things like “You’re a bad guy,”and “You got Ann fired. Does that make you happy?”
I would think the answer would be ‘Yes’ as part of Matt reportedly demanded TODAY fire Ann before renewing his contract.
Another source stated; “It’s driving him crazy. He’s so unhappy.”
Oh well. Poor overpaid Matt may be ”unhappy” but he is under contract with the show, so he can rest assured his bank account will remain intact, even if his reputation is going down the toilet.
TELL US – DOES MATT DESERVE THE NAME CALLING?
Former co-anchor of Today, Katie Couric, fondly recalls a prank Matt pulled on her in a Florida hotel room, when he had the staff hide his picture all over Katie’s room. She tells Page Six Magazine (out this Thursday); “He had someone put one under my pillow with things like, ‘Hi, look who you’re sleeping with tonight’ written on it,” she tells the mag. “He had someone put one on the minibar that said, ‘Get out of here.’ The piece de resistance was when I lifted up the toilet seat and there he was. They had taped a photo of him under the toilet, and it said, ‘Yep, here I am, too.’
Al Roker is also weighing in regards to Matt’s “Diva” behaviour saying it’s “just a crock.” Al also shares a story; “One day we were traveling, and I was sitting across from [Matt], and I look over and he’s looking at his laptop, and he’s crying. I’m like, ‘What the heck?’ He’s watching ‘The Notebook,’ and the tears are just flowing.”
So who are we to believe? Katie and Al or the bitter, disgruntled folks on staff now? Time will certainly reveal the truth.
TELL US – IS MATT AS ‘EVIL’ AS THEY WOULD HAVE US BELIEVE?
