Inneresting. Very inneresting.
Meredith Vieira looked fantastic in an all-salmon number as she covered the August issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
She has certainly earned it!
We mean, Meredith was behind an entire era at ABC and was one of the original ladies on The View!
While using the cover to promote her new talk show, The Meredith Vieira Show, she also touched upon her time at Today and what she told Matt Lauer when things weren't going so smoothly.
“I just told him I loved him and I was there for him. But I never sugarcoated what had happened. I thought it had not been handled smartly from the very beginning, because I don’t think they ever felt that was the right fit for Ann so they should never have put her in that position to begin with. And then the ending was so mishandled. But you know what, sh!t happens. People make mistakes. We all do.”
That's much more candid than we expected from the journalist.
Anyway, according to reports, The Meredith Vieira Show has a budget of $35 million! But that's still a lot less than Katie Couric's $50 million, which clearly went nowhere.
We wish you the best of luck on your show!
You can catch Meredith's new daytime TV show when it premieres on Sept. 8th!
