Matt Lauer: Kicked Out by His Wife! Finally!

Matt Lauer lost his job a couple months ago.

Along with it, he lost his dignity.

And now, according to a new report in The New York Post, he has lost his soulmate.

The aforementioned newspaper quotes an anonymous source who says Annette Roque has finally come to her senses and kicked Lauer out of the family home in The Hamptons.

The disgraced Today Show anchor has reportedly moved out of this estate and is now crashing someplace nearby.

(For the expensive record: He owns a $ 36 million compound in North Haven, a house in Sag Harbor and a 40-acre horse farm in Water Mill.)

Lauer, of course, was fired by NBC in late November after a woman accused him of sexual harassment.

Not long after this development, numerous other reports indicated that Lauer was basically a gross sexual predator at work.

There have been allegations against him of dropping his pants in front of employees; of gifting them with sex toys; and even of raping one of them in his office.

It’s horrible stuff all around.

The public has been wondering for several weeks now just why Roque is sticking around.

The only plausible explanation, which has been cited by many websites around the Internet, is that she and Lauer have been living separate lives for many years now anyway.

Lauer spends nearly every week night in New York City and only would make it out to The Hamptons on weekends.

Nevertheless, the more Roque has realized how much Lauer sucks, and the more chatter about previous affairs has emerged… the louder the divorce rumors have grown.

The Post claims Roque will soon file the necessary papers to rid herself of Lauer once and for all.

Sources have been saying of late that Lauer wants to save the marriage, but that Roque has been “very cold” to him.

Hmmm… we wonder why that would be.

Actually, no, sorry: we don’t wonder why that would be at all.

Shortly after Lauer was fired, he issued a lengthy mea culpa that didn’t deny he had acted like a disgusting pervert for decades.

Scroll down to read the statement in its entirety…

There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.

As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.

Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.

I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly.

Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job.

The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws. It’s been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love.

I thank them for their patience and grace.

Matt Baier: CAUGHT Cheating On New Wife! (Exclusive)

Back in November, Teen Mom OG fans were stunned by the news that Amber Portwood's ex-fiancé, Matt Baier, had gotten married.

The announcement came as a shock, not only because Matt and Amber had only broken up a few months earlier, but also because the public wasn't even aware that Matt was dating anyone.

We later learned that Matt and Jennifer Conlon got hitched after just a few weeks of dating.

Fans on social media offered words of caution about Baier, whose sketchy behavior was well-documented during his time on MTV.

Conlon dismissed their concerns, but new evidence obtained exclusively by The Hollywood Gossip suggests she may want to consider the possibility that Matt is every bit as shady as he appears…

1. The Baier Truth

Matt baier is perplexed
Matt didn’t earn a lot of fans during his time as a reality star, thanks in part to allegations of unpaid child support, infidelity, and drug use. He claims he was misrepresented on the show, but evidence obtained by The Hollywood Gossip indicates that Matt may have already been unfaithful to his new wife…

2. Meet Mimi

A woman identified only by the alias “Mimi” revealed to us that she and Baier have been carrying on an online relationship that has continued despite the fact that he’s now married to Conlon. “Matt and I met on Snapchat a couple of months ago, and when he sent the message saying he was deleting his Snapchat, I asked him about it and he sent me his number and said to keep it private, we have texted almost every day since, and he even calls me every now and then,” Mimi claims.

3. Married Matt

When Matt got married, Mimi eventually found out about it … but not from Baier: “There was about a 2 day span where he ‘disappeared’ on me, which as I found out was when he got married. It has been confirmed to me from an editor at another gossip site/magazine that he is in fact married and that the number I have is really his number,” she writes us.

4. The Con Is On

In the past, Baier has been accused of using women (with Amber being his most famous victim, of course), and it looks as though he may be repeating that pattern with Mimi: “He is supposed to be leaving Vegas tomorrow to come see me, but I get the feeling he isn’t coming. I sent him money for travel(yes that was stupid, but I also thought if I funded the trip then he would actually come). I think he will either make some excuse not to leave tomorrow, and use the money, or stop talking to me completely.”

5. Still Hopeful?

Matt baier is lame
Mimi says she remained optimistic regarding her future with Matt despite mounting evidence that he’s not to be trusted. “I hope he does actually come here. I have been nothing but nice to Matt, and he has done nothing but lie to me. I was giving him the benefit of the doubt as I do with most anyone, but apparently the tabloids and tv have proved to be right,” she says.

6. A Familiar Pattern

“Matt tells me he is in love with me, and we are together, and he even wants to get married. I guarantee when busted he will deny it,” Mimi writes. She’s even attempted to enlist the help of some of Baier’s fellow MTV stars in hopes of exposing his cheating ways …

Matt Roloff & Amy Roloff: Celebrate Jacob’s Birthday Together Despite Feud Rumors!

Just a little over a week ago, fans unfairly slammed Amy Roloff after they assumed that Matt Roloff was banned from his son Jacob’s early birthday party

We talked about how undeserved the hate that Amy received was, and Matt Roloff himself decried the rumors when he saw them.

But if you still need proof that Amy and Matt Roloff aren’t at each other’s throats, look at how they came together for their son, Jacob.

Amy Roloff and Matt Roloff are divorced.

Even though they live so close to each other and star on Little People, Big World and will always be linked by their children (and grandchildren!), they don’t have to be joined at the hip.

Amy Roloff has her boyfriend, Chris Marek, and Matt Roloff has his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler. They’ve both moved on. That’s life.

But that hasn’t stopped some fans from reading too much into their separate lives and then assuming that the two can’t stand to be in the same room with each other.

Like they did just a little over a week ago, when Jacob Roloff celebrated his birthday with his mom.

Jacob Roloff is now 21 years old. Several days before his birthday, the son who was once the family “black sheep” spent quality time with his mom (and not just to sell bread).

Matt’s siblings and their spouses and even his little niece and nephew (his niblings!) gathered together for an early celebration at Amy’s place.

One of the results was a precious group photo — a rare sight, since the Roloff children are all adults now and not all of them even live in the same state.

Matt Roloff was conspicuously absent, which ruffled some feathers by fans who seem to resent that Amy Roloff has her own life.

A report claimed that Matt didn’t even receive an invitation … but he was elsewhere with his girlfriend, so it really shouldn’t have been controversial.

Some reality stars try to avoid reading gossip about themselves. That can’t be good for your stress levels, right?

Not so for the Little People, Big World patriarch. After seeing coverage that claimed an epic feud between the exes, Matt Roloff slammed the “fake news” about his family, writing:

“Fake news is alive and well.. how sad. The roloff family just keeps hanging closer and closer together despite these broken misleading headlines …”

Not to be nitpicky, fake news would be if some accused Audrey Roloff of selling human organs out of a nonexistant Burger King attic. Rumors would be people seeing separate exes and assuming that they’re feuding.

(Still, Matt Roloff’s version is still better than Trump’s, since the orange man uses the phrase to refer to news that he doesn’t personally like)

Matt’s post continues:

“Matt, amy, Jer , zach Audrey, Tori, molly, Joel, Jacob, Izzy, Chris and caryn. All working together to surprise you all at how an American family can function together despite a few minor differences.”

That’s sweet. And then he teases the new season of Little People, Big World:

“Wait for it…… a few short months.”

If you feel like you can’t wait “a few short months” and you also can’t take the Roloffs at their word (for whatever reason), would it help you to know that both Matt and Amy were at Jacob’s actual birthday party?

Unlike on Thanksgiving and Christmas and numerous other holidays, and perhaps for the first time (that we’ve seen) since Molly’s wedding, Matt and Amy were together at the same place, at the same time.

Because Jacob is their son, folks.

Among the videos from Jacob’s 21st birthday party shared briefly on social media via Instagram stories were shots of Amy and Matt with Jackson and Ember, respectively.

So, yes, they were at the same party. They can definitely stand to be in the same room together. Everybody needs to take a deep breath and stop making assumptions.

It may have not been the wildest 21st birthday party on record, but it was a wholesome family gathering.

Speaking of alleged Roloff feuds and that party in particular, Audrey and Jacob buried the hatchet — if there ever really was one.

(It’s long been believed that, perhaps over religious differences, the two don’t see eye-to-eye. Maybe they don’t, but it’s clearly not too big of a deal)

We think that what causes all of this unfounded fan speculation is that we’re all starved for more information about the Roloffs because Little People, Big World isn’t back yet.

But, as Matt Roloff says, we just need to wait a few months. Whatever real conflicts that family has will probably be shared with us.

Ann Curry Breaks Silence on Matt Lauer Misconduct, Firing

Ann Curry did her best to take the high road on Wednesday.

Sitting down with CBS This Morning to address a number of topics, Curry was asked early on about her former colleague, Matt Lauer.

Despite sharing a desk for many years, it was an open secret that Curry and Lauer never exactly got along well.

When Curry was fired five-plus years ago by NBC, most insiders believed it was Lauer who forced her out – and most viewers noted that she didn’t really acknowledge her co-anchor during her farewell address on air.

Fast forward to November of 2017… and Lauer getting fired under even more scandalous circumstances.

He’s been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct and even rape.

Some people remain shocked by these charges, truly taken aback that Lauer could even do such things.

But Curry is not one of these people.

“I can tell you that I am not surprised by the allegations,” the veteran journalist said flat-out this morning.

“Do you believe that Matt Lauer abused his power?” Norah O’Donnell asked.

Replied Curry, afraid of saying too much:

“Now I’m walking down that road and I’m trying not to hurt people. And I know what it’s like to be publicly humiliated.

“I never did anything wrong to be publicly humiliated and I don’t want to cause that kind of pain to somebody else.”

Fair enough, of course.

Like we said above, she really did try to take the high road.

But… 

“I can say that – because you are asking me a very direct question – I can say that I would be surprised if many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment that existed,” Curry continued.

“I would be surprised if someone said that they didn’t see that. So, it was verbal sexual harassment.”

Matt Lauer and Ann Curry dressed as Prince William and Kate Middleton for Halloween in 2011.

Lauer was let go bt NBC in late November after a colleague accused him of sexual misconduct in the workplace.

At the time, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack sent an email to employees just moments before Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb broke the news on the air.

(Kotb has since replaced Lauer as Guthrie’s permanent co-host.)

Since the initial accusation, multiple reports have been published that alleged Lauer sent underlings sex toys, asked them to perform sex acts and even forced himself on a woman in his office on at least one occasion.

A day after his ousting, Lauer issued the following apology:

There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.

As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.

Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.

I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly.

Lauer has said very little since then.

Sources say he’s just hanging out around his home in the Hamptons and spending time with his kids.

We can’t imagine he’s ever hired in the television industry again.

And if this is the case, we’d just like to say one thing:

GOOD RIDDANCE!

Matt Damon: I Should Probably Shut Up, Huh?!?

It took several weeks and multiple interview, but it has finally happened.

Matt Damon has finally said the right thing about the ongoing sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood.

On Tuesday morning, the veteran actor sat down with The Today Show and reflected on a series of remarks he made last month that got him in boiling hot water.

“I really wished I listened a lot more before I weighed in on this,” Damon said on the program, referring to controversial comments he made in regard to the #MeToo movement.

He’s talking, of course, about a chat Damon had in mid-December with Peter Travis of ABC.

In this chat, Damon grew very defensive of his own gender, taking the stance that not all men are sexual predators and not all the sexual violations are equal.

“There’s a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?” Damon asked, stating the obvious.

Over the past few months, of course, stars from Kevin Spacey to Harvey Weinstein to Louis CK to Matt Lauer have been accused of heinous acts toward women.

“We are so energized to kind of get retribution,” Damon continued, sticking his foot deeper and deeper into his mouth and adding:

“We live in this culture of outrage and injury, and we’re going to have to correct enough to kind of go, ‘Wait a minute. None of us came here perfect.'”

Talk about missing the point and getting up high on one’s own pedestal, huh?

Damon now acknowledges this.

“Ultimately, what it is for me is that I don’t want to further anybody’s pain with anything that I do or say,” Damon said this morning. “For that, I am really sorry.”

In a follow-up December interview, Damon emphasized that a majority of men treat women with respect.

“I think one thing that’s not being talked about is there are a whole shitload of guys – the preponderance of men I’ve worked with – who don’t do this kind of thing and whose lives aren’t going to be affected,” he said back then.

Yeah. We’re pretty sure innocent men are not the victims here.

Again, Damon has at last come around to this realization.

Speaking of the #MeToo movement and the Time’s Up movement, Damon now says the following:

“A lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they’re doing and want to be a part of that change and want to go along for the ride, but I should get in the back seat and close my mouth for a while.”

Yes. Finally. There it is.

Men need to sit back and just listen to women explain what so many have gone through over the course of their lifetimes and/or their careers.

Following his initial statement(s), celebrities such as Alyssa Milano and Minnie Driver came out and slammed the actor.

Tweeted Milano, for example:

“Dear Matt Damon, It’s the micro that makes the macro.

“We are not outraged because someone grabbed our asses in a picture. We are outraged because we were made to feel this was normal.

“We are outraged because we have been gaslighted. We are outraged because we were silenced for so long. … There are different stages of cancer.

“Some more treatable than others. But it’s still cancer.”

So very well said.

We’re glad to see what Matt Damon now agrees.

Matt Roloff Blasts “Fake News” About His Close-Knit Family

Matt Roloff has gone all Donald Trump on his Facebook followers.

No, the Little People, Big World star has not referred to African nations in a very derogatory manner.

But he has used his social media platform to call out “fake news” outlets and reports.

Having apparently surfed the Internet often of late, the TLC personality is none too happy about what he’s seen.

Roloff has stumbled upon various stories that paint his family as a bunch of loved ones at odds, which is a stark contrast from the way they are presented on television each week.

(When Little People, Big World is in season, that is; HINT, HINT, TLC executives: Bring it back soon please!)

“Just got caught up on my roloff family fake news… lol. Fake news is alive and well.. how sad,” wrote Matt, adding by way of defense and reassurance:

“The roloff family just keeps hanging closer and closer together despite these broken misleading headlines … matt, amy, Jer , zach Audrey, Tori, molly, Joel, Jacob, Izzy, Chris and caryn.

“All working together to surprise you all at how an American family can function together despite a few minor differences. Wait for it…… a few short months.”

We actually do have a pretty firm idea about what Roloff is referring to here.

roloff, m

Over the past several weeks, there’s been chatter, for example, that he and Amy are at odds.

The couple filed for divorce about two years ago and have each found love in the arms of someone new (Caryn Chandler for Matt, Chris Marek for Amy).

It has certainly seemed from the outside like an amicable split.

However, tension reportedly emanated between the ex-lovers late last year as a result of Roloff’s romance with Chandler and the way Caryn often treats Amy.

This was never confirmed any insider who used his or her name in public – and neither Matt nor Amy said a negative word about the other.

But you know how rumors spread online, right?

Elsewhere, some fans have started to wonder why no photos exist that feature both Audrey and Jacob.

Even we must admit, for a tight-knit group of relative, this is a bit off.

Could these in-laws truly not get along well due to their opposite religious beliefs?

That basically sums up the chatter going on around this alleged feud.

Thankfully for Matt, however, most of his followers aren’t buying any of these claims.

Just take a look at the comments in reply to his “fake news” post:

mr defense

We’re not certain where we stand, to be honest.

It does seem fishy that Audrey and Jacob are never in the same place, but so what, right?

Who says every member of every family has to be best friends?

Also, Caryn Chandler did serve as the Roloff family farm manager prior to dating Matt. She knew Amy pretty well.

So of course things would be awkward between her and Matt’s ex-wife. Wouldn’t it almost be strange if they were not?

None of this means the Roloffs don’t love each other and aren’t always there for each other.

It mostly just means they’re… gasp! … normal.

Once again, however, we beseech TLC to air new episodes of Little People, Big World.

We miss the show.

And only then can we see these stars in action and know for sure just what is going on.
