It sounds like Kathie Lee Gifford is that girl that you want in your corner when everyone else has turned their back. The star of the Today Show’s 4th hour is staunchly supportive of Matt Lauer, the man who has been accused of orchestrating Ann Curry’s firing from the show last June. Anne has gathered a petition filled with signatures of NBC employees that full support the troubled anchor who came under fire because he seemed to support Ann’s being let go.
Truthfully, we’ve never really heard much of Matt’s side of the story because as his popularity has plummeted he still has opted to keep his mouth shut and take a higher road. Kathie Lee decided to become his mouth piece and even offered to have the petition published with all of its signatures in a major newspaper. According to the June 10th print edition of GLOBE Matt has greatly appreciated Kathie’s loyalty but thought that kind of action was unnecessary.
