Matt Lauer's Alleged Secret Affair With Today Production Assistant Exposed! Read Her Story Here!

Filed under: TV NewsKatie CouricMatt LauerControversy

no title

Don't think a powerful man having a consensual affair with a colleague is a big deal? Maybe to Matt Lauer it's not — but one of the many women he reportedly manipulated thinks differently.

Addie Zinone worked as a production assistant on NBC's Today back in 1999, where she expected to work toward her dream job of being an on-air journalist like Katie Couric.

What she got instead was a string of confusing workplace hookups with the accused daytime philanderer that went on to negatively impact her career, as well as her mental health.

Recounting the tryst to Variety, Zinone said she forged strong bonds with Couric, Ann Curry, and Al Roker during her months running the news on Today, but remembers Lauer keeping more of a professional distance — until she accepted a job in West Virginia.

One morning on June 8, the then-24-year-old received a message from Lauer on the company's instant messaging system out of the blue. She says he wrote:

Today Staffers Shade The FUCK Out Of 'Terrible' Megyn Kelly For Making Matt Lauer's Firing 'All About Her' — Get The Scoop!

Matt Lauer may have assaulted and harassed multiple women at NBC, but Megyn Kelly is apparently still the most hated person at Today.

Insiders at the morning show told DailyMail.com that Kelly's colleagues are disgusted by the "opportunistic" way she reported Lauer's ousting, which they say should have focused on the accuser and the devastated Today team.

Instead, the former Fox News host used her platform to "make it all about her" and what she knew about the situation, according to the source.

At a media event in Manhattan on Wednesday, Kelly touted Lauer's firing as "a sign of progress." She admitted to hearing "rumors" about the alleged misconduct and said she knew reporters were "sniffing" around "the issue," but hoped they "weren't true."

Sounds like the regular stone-cold Kelly to us — but those on the inside are outraged the journalist put herself before her new Today family, who were all apparently crying and distraught after the news broke.

Megyn Kelly, Kathie Lee Gifford, & Al Roker Speak Out As Details Emerge That Matt Lauer Allegedly Sexually Assaulted NBC Staffer During Sochi Winter Olympics

Matt Lauer

Buckle up, fam — we have a feeling this is just the beginning of what we'll hear surrounding Matt Lauer's firing from NBC News.

As we reported, the Today show vet was terminated after the network received a compelling complaint about "inappropriate sexual behavior."

Page Six is now reporting the alleged sexual assault occurred at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. An insider said:

"This happened so quickly. She didn't go to the media, she made a complaint to NBC's human resources, and her evidence was so compelling that Matt was fired on Tuesday night. The victim says she has evidence that this has also happened to other women, but so far we don't have evidence of that."

We're sure more details will surface as the day goes on.

Execs Are PISSED Megyn Kelly Is Making More Than NBC Vets For Her Flimsy Talk Show! See Why She's Being Called A '$100 Million Mistake'!

no title

Megyn Kelly knows the art of the deal.

Earlier this year, it was rumored that the former Fox News anchor was being paid $18 million for her new daytime gig at NBC.

But now the host's real salary has reportedly been leaked by DailyMailTV, and network executives are apparently furious over the "obscene" paycheck Kelly is getting for her not-so-hot Today show hour!

According to employees who were not involved in her hiring, Kelly is raking in a healthy $69 million over the next three years for her role at NBC.

That staggering figure — $23 million a year — has senior execs feeling particularly salty because it surpasses the salaries of the network's veteran stars. One high-ranking official said:

Rush Limbaugh Dragged On Twitter After Calling Hurricane Irma Coverage A Hoax — Then Evacuating Florida

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikTwitterViral: News

Even Rush Limbaugh doesn't believe the bullshit that comes out of Rush Limbaugh!

On Tuesday, the right-wing radio host basically heavily implied that the severity of Hurricane Irma was being exaggerated to feed into the liberal myth of climate change.

Because why argue the conclusions when you can argue facts, right? That's the Rush trademark! The blowhard said:

"All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent, and bigger, and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it's mission accomplished, agenda advanced."

Never mind that it takes a certain kind of delusion to imply inclement weather is #FakeNews — it also takes a certain negligence. People listen to this asshole, something celeb meteorologist Al Roker was quick to point out on Twitter at the time:
