[LaineyGossip] A popular married television personality who’s also a chronic cheater had an affair a few years ago with a woman (also married with kids) who’s now become his colleague. The colleague ran into his wife recently. The wife decided they would have a little conversation. There were no pleasantries. The wife pretty much opened with – who did you have to f-ck to get this new position? How many people have you f*cked to get to where you are now? The colleague, obviously mortified, as they’re actually in a place crawling with parents and children, frequented by their own children, tried to be civil, tried to downplay the hostilities. No, the wife wasn’t interested in having a dignified discussion in public. She kept up her line of questioning about the colleague’s career mobility with pointed questions about how much time she’d spent on her back to get to where she is. The badgering continued, the wife was relentless, until the colleague rushed away. The wife is now boasting about the incident to all the ladies in the circle and beyond, convinced that the reason the colleague is getting so much play on the network these days is because she’s willing to give up so much play for the executives, the way she gave it up for her husband.
This isn’t the first time the wife has behaved aggressively. Her husband has pleaded with her to chill out when they’re in public as it could affect his reputation, like his constant dicking isn’t the major contributor to that. Still, her target right now is his colleague and the colleague’s reputation and she seems to be willing, happily willing, to share with anyone who asks how this colleague is earning all her jobs …though I wonder if all that casting couching is enough since, you know, Julia Roberts didn’t seem to be aware.

As you know, we’ve already done several posts about Natalie’s affair with Matt, and the affect that it has had on his marriage and on NBC’s choice for replacing Ann Curry on The Today Show. Here’s one that hits on some of the high points: Top Show Drama 3
The Julia Roberts clue that Lainey gave was a great one. This gem goes back to a Golden Globes interview where a drunk Julia managed to dis both NBC and Natalie Morales:
Who’s Natalie? Ouch.
Annette is happy that Savannah Guthrie got the cohost spot, but unhappy that Natalie is going to stay at the Today Show. She is certainly going to keep a close eye on Natalie, starting with the Olympics. From RadarOnline:
Matt Lauer’s Wife Going To London Olympics To Keep Tabs On Him!
Matt Lauer’s wife, Annette Roque will be traveling across the pond for the London Olympics with their three children, to keep tabs on her husband and his roving eye as he spends time in the city reporting on the upcoming games, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“Annette and the kids will all be going to the Olympics so she can keep very close tabs on Matt,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “Matt and his family will be staying at a different hotel than the rest of the cast and crew. Annette generally doesn’t like to accompany Matt when he travels for work, but it’s the Olympics and the kids are very excited. It’s hard to travel with three kids and Annette enjoys spending the summer at their Hamptons mansion where they live full-time now but Annette has made it very clear the whole family will be heading to London. Annette has made no bones about the fact she will be keeping close tabs on Matt.”
As previously reported ratings for TODAY have plummeted since Ann Curry took over from Meredith Vieira last year and as a result the veteran journalist has been handed a pink slip and Roque isn’t happy about the situation. She fears the replacement will be none other than Natalie Morales, the woman Lauer was not only accused of having an affair with, but also fathering one of her children.
Roque, reportedly told the NBC host that if Morales gets the job, she’s divorcing him. “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,” a source close to Lauer’s wife told The National Enquirer. “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.”
Annette filed for divorce from Lauer when she was pregnant with their third child in 2006, but soon thereafter the couple reconciled, and the divorce petition was withdrawn.
We still have one more question about this whole mess: Is Matt Lauer the father of Natalie Morales’ son?
