Matt Lauer was recently fired from NBC following claims of sexual misconduct in the workplace — claims that rocked the media world amid a wave of similar stories in Hollywood and Washington.
In the aftermath, more emerged about what it was like at the network with one insider saying NBC’s “Today” show was a “total boys’ club.”
“Matt’s sexual conquests were general office fodder,” one morning staffer told the New York Post.
“There was constant innuendo in the office about which woman had just had sex with Matt and which one would be next,” the insider revealed.
And one former member of the “Today” show not only accused Lauer of having “picked up and disposed of” desirable female colleagues on a whim — but also said that he threatened their careers if they ever told anyone.
“The most horrible thing was that he made it clear that if they ever spoke out or crossed him, they would be fired from the show, negative stories leaked about them, and their careers would be destroyed,” the former NBC staffer said.
And now the attention is turning to Lauer’s personal life as estranged wife Annette Roque is not wearing her wedding ring and her father says their marriage is over, according to a new report.
Lauer and Roque married in 1998 and she filed for divorce in 2006, before withdrawing the petition.
“She is not going to stay with him and work it out. They are not together trying to work it out,” Roque’s father, Henri, told Daily Mail. “I have no words for her husband. What he has done is bad. Everybody feels betrayed.”
