Ann Curry & Matt Lauer: 'Icy' Encounters Of The Today Show Kind

| Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsSad Sad

Ann Curry Matt Lauer Feud

As we saw yesterday, things got super weird and pretty uncomfortable between Ann Curry and Matt Lauer during Ann’s goodbye to the Today show!

Ann hadn’t even been gone for long before Savannah Guthrie stepped sat in her place this morning as co-host, alongside Matt!

Now we’re hearing that things were JUST as awkward behind the scenes…if not even MORE tense off-air!

During Ann’s last week on the show, an insider described the atmosphere, revealing:

"It was so icy on the set. You could cut the tension with a knife."

After 15 years working on the morning show and just one year as co-host, you’d think Matt and Ann would be besties, right??

A source spilled about the duo's REAL dynamic, saying:

"When the cameras stopped rolling, Ann wouldn't even look at Matt.”

As viewers might’ve caught on yesterday’s show, Ann hugged everyone EXCEPT for Lauer!!

Oh shiz!! Something really must have gone down…!

A source on set said that Ann’s goodbye to Today felt more like a “funeral in a way”…pretty much to everyone BUT Lauer!

Like we said earlier, Savannah appeared in the opening from this morning’s broadcast and has replaced Ann on the show.

We can't wait to see what's next for Ann after all this mess is done and dusted!! We wish her the best!

    I have never understood Lauer's appeal. He's not good looking. He's not particularly sexy. And I've never believed his nice-guy persona because it's a bit too manufactured. And there have been rumors through the years that he's just not what he seems. So why he has that much power at NBC is a mystery to me. I feel sorry for Curry.

    I will miss her sweet, gentle voice.

    #1 - OMG, really?! I think that Matt is all that and a bag of chips! Did you ever see that photo taken of him on the beach a couple of years ago? Talk about Magic Matt! Ooh La La! He is the ultimate man. Fine, smart, and funny as hell!

    Some day in the not too distant future NBC will realize it wasn't Ann who caused their ratings to sink, it was Matt Lauer. Good Morning America has great talent, good stories, interesting interviews and more than anything else not one of them acts like narcissistic Matt Lauer.

    Wow. I only liked the show because of Ann Curry! It's a shame. Nice woman. Hopefully she gets picked up by a better network. No more NBC for me. First Conan and now Ann. Not a fan.

    Why didn't they let her finish out the week? I'm thinking she couldn't take it anymore and told them she wanted to leave on Thursday. They didn't even have a farewell hour for Ann like they did for Meredith. Bitches! Plus, Lauer sucks! He seems so into himself, it's disgusting.

    Have not watched this show in years, the few times I turn on a morning show (which is not often) it is GMA.

    Matt Lauer is a jerk, and the only reason he is still there is because the world of entertainment is still a boys' club. I hope that his darker side gets exposed some day soon. He is a terrible journalist who is so self-righteous that he lets his personal feelings guide his treatment of interview guests. I know that I shouldn't rush to judgment without even knowing what allegedly happened between Matt and Ann, but I feel strongly that it's safe to assume that Ann has a good reason to be upset with Matt. He is like Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles, in that you can just tell that there's something about him that just isn't right.

    Re: Tania – Exactly. Matt Lauer is so full of himself. You'd think that someone who has somehow lucked out and stumbled his way into one of the most-desired anchor positions in television would be a lot more humble.

    Re: Omniscient Gal – I think there are some dark secrets about Matt Lauer. He has always given me the creeps, and he really does seem to consider himself some kind of lone moral arbiter that is desperately needed in journalism. I get the feeling that he is a well-connected person who is not afraid to use those connections to rough people up as he pleases.

    Re: Omniscient Gal – he has a HUGE FAT TOOL IN HIS PANTZ!!!!
