Sounds like there’s even MORE dramz going on behind the scenes of the Today show than we were even aware of!
While this week is allegedly Ann Curry’s last on the morning show, her most recent rumored replacement is show regular Natalie Morales!
The one person justifiably unhappy about Morales’ possible promotion is Matt Lauer’s wife, Annette Roque.
As you may or may not remember, Natalie was the woman at the center of Lauer’s affair accusations, where Matt was even rumored to be the baby daddy to one of her kids!
A source close to Annette revealed:
"When she heard about Ann getting the boot, the first thing she told Matt was that she didn't want him cozying up any closer to Natalie. 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. Annette knows Matt is the key to the Today franchise and his bosses will put whoever he wants in the co-host chair."
Uh oh…this doesn’t sound good at all!
Though Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb are currently being eyed the most for the position, Morales has supposedly threatened to quit the show all together if she doesn’t nab the gig!
Sounds like NBC and the head honchos over at Today are going to have a LOT to deal with in the near future…!!
