Even After Matt Lauer’s scandal, Hoda Kotb says she still talks with him often, and although some might find this news shocking — to her he is just a friend that has been there for her for 20 years.
Hoda Kotb stated in her profile as part of The Hollywood Reporter’s 35 Most Powerful People In New York Media List “We keep in touch with Matt.”
Kotb says that Lauer was there for her through her toughest moments in life, and that is the only Matt she knows.
“I’ve known him since I started working at NBC back in 1998. When I was sick with breast cancer, he was the first to call. He helps and helped in ways that … you know, he was incredible in that way. There is that Matt and then there’s the Matt that the accusers speak of. And those accusers’ voices matter, and that story matters,” according to Page Six.
Recent reports are saying that Lauer is writing a book in hopes to bring in some money from it.
