Now that Ann Curry is leaving the Today Show, they have to fill the slot. And even though there are at least three contenders, Matt Lauer’s wife has allegedly threatened to file for divorce if Natalie Morales gets the job as co-anchor, according to an inside source.
Producers for the Today Show have hinted that one of three women, which includes Hoda Kotba, Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales. But the final choice may depend on Matt Lauer who just signed a multi-million dollar contract with the show, and if he chooses Natalie Morales, his wife says she will seek out a divorce attorney and file for dissolution.
A source close to Annette Roque told the National Enquirer, “When she heard about Ann getting the boot, the first thing she told Matt was that she didn’t want him cozying up any closer to Natalie. In fact Annette drew the line in the sand and said if he pushed show bosses to make Natalie his ne co-host she would divorce him.”
So why does Lauer’s wife object to Morales? Well, in 2006 Lauer was accused of having an affair with Morales when the duo was covering the Olympics in Italy. The unidentified person who exposed the affair also said that one of Natalie’s children was fathered by Matt. However these rumors have never been confirmed.
Infidelity is a driving force in many marriages; a small percentage of couples chose to stay married. When a person discovers their spouse has cheated on them one of their first actions is to retain a divorce lawyer to draft up dissolution papers.
Cheating can make a divorce very contentious and the parties involved need to hire savvy divorce attorneys to protect their assets from a jilted spouse.
