Al Roker called out Matt Lauer on the Today Show this morning…how exactly well it went like this…Matt, Al and Savannah were interviewing a few ladies from the Olympic rowing team and then they talked about throwing on of their team mates in the water after races and Matt said, “The tradition here in NY is you throw her in the Hudson River,” and that’s when Al added, “Which is different than OUR tradition … which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that’s another story.”
Awkward…And it all goes back to Ann Curry!!
As TMZ previously reported, Ann believes Matt trashed her behind the scenes of the show … and pressured NBC to fire her ass because he couldn’t stand working with her. And, as we reported, part of Matt’s deal in re-signing with Today was that Ann had to hit the road.
Sources tell us Ann was cool with Al … and respected him … and after the comment he made on the show, it seems the feeling is mutual.
