“Today Show’s” Matt Lauer accused of cheating, booted out of the house
OK, it takes a very special woman, or string of women, to hook up with “Today Show” host Matt Lauer, 52.
Where is the excitement in Lauer? In his Kevin Nealon looks? In his reenactments of his fight with Tom Cruise on air? Does he have a suave way of delivering the news?
Whatever it is, apparently the ladies do like the Lauer, and the Lauer likes them.
His wife Annette of 12 years accused him of infidelity. The New York Daily News and the National Enquirer are elaborating on the story with the latter reporting that Lauer has signed off from living at his family’s apartment after a two-day argument. Meanwhile, Annette isn’t wearing her wedding ring. The Lauers have three children.
“I heard he and Annette are breaking up. I was not shocked to hear that but it’s very sad,” Matt’s ex-wife, Nancy Alspaugh, told the Enquirer.
Annette thought something was kooky when Lauer decided to remain at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver after NBC wrapped there rather than come home for Valentine’s Day. Observers spotted Lauer going “wild” with friends at nightspots and caught the eye of two good-looking Canadian broadcasters.
What exactly “wild” entails for Lauer is questionable. Did he ride a mechanical bull and fly off? Did he body paint his chest in the Olympic colors?
Meanwhile, New York Daily News reports that Matt is trying to keep a low profile as his NBC bosses expect him to keep a family man image due to the show’s large female audience.
To date, there is no word as to whether Annette Lauer hired Tom Cruise to kick Matt’s ass.
