We’re betting that females won’t be the only people considering lawsuits against Charlie Sheen for not disclosing that he was infected with HIV before they had sex. If we remember correctly, during his heaviest drug addled days he requested the services of prostitutes of both sexes. Sometimes more than one at a time. To be honest, we’re not sure if they have a case, because isn’t it up to each individual to protect his or herself? And the question has come up: Is it actually against the law in California not to reveal HIV status to sex partners? Our BIGGEST mystery is: Why didn’t Matt Lauer ask Charlie if he had sex with men?”

The speculation that chef Giada De Laurentiis and her husband Todd Thompson were splitting up has been going around for quite awhile. We were just about to dismiss the idea when she announced they are, indeed, divorcing after 11 years together and one six year old daughter. They built this house together in Pacific Palisades in 2007, and we wonder if she will keep it. It’s 3,160 sq ft, 4 bedrooms , 3 baths, and has a sundeck on top for entertaining. Now those rumors about Giada and Matt Lauer will heat up! He always gets very excited when she appears on The Today Show. (By the way, if you haven’t tried Giada’s pasta sauce (sold only at Target) do so – it’s yummy!)
Here in LA, we don’t get to see Matt Lauer and his wife Annette very often, but against all odds, they are still together after 16 years, and look content. Tabloids have often accused Matt of cheating, and in 2006 when Annette was pregnant with their third child, she actually filed for divorce and then changed her mind. There were more cheating accusations during the Winter Olympics but the marriage weathered the storm once again. And here they are at the posh Hamptons Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton.

Pamela Anderson must have had a good laugh this morning when Today show host Matt Lauer burst onto the show dressed up as Baywatch Pam for Halloween. Actually he has nice legs! Our favorites were Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie dressed up as Laverne & Shirley. Schlemiel, schlimazel!

Cher appeared on The Today Show this morning and we could SWEAR that during her interview Matt Lauer let a secret slip out. We thought we heard him say that Cher had big news about her ENGAGEMENT. There was an awkward silence and the subject was abruptly changed and they talked about something else. Did Matt spill the beans or did we imagine it? Cher has been hanging out with writer Ron Zimmerman and says that she learned to keep her private life private. We wonder if anyone else saw this on the show…

Matt Lauer’s fierce and determined interview with Paula Deen in which he didn’t let her squirm out of a single important answer, brought to mind the rumor that he might be in line to take over Piers Morgan’s show on CNN. Today is still lagging in the sweeps and it seems like no one will ever let him forget about the Ann Curry firing. So a nighttime interview show might be looking pretty good to Matt about now. And Piers isn’t exactly breaking any sweeps or popularity records either.

NBC must REALLY be getting worried about the ratings on the Today show because they had the show’s executive producer make excuses for Matt Lauer to The Hollywood Reporter. Not only is the morning show in a ratings slump, but Lauer’s popularity is dimming fast. The unpleasantly handled replacement of Ann Curry by younger Savannah Guthrie caused their problems. Viewers just won’t forgive tyrannical Matt for dumping Ann and humiliating her. Let’s face it, narrow-minded male producers of the show probably think Matt is the GREATEST, and that females are interchangeable! They were shocked by this turn of events! Did it never occur to them that bald stodgy men surrounded by young beauty queens might NOT be what the public wants to see?
It looks like NBC will rue the day they fired Ann Curry. When Matt Lauer decided he no longer wanted Ann as his cohost on the Today show, she was unceremoniously replaced by younger Savannah Guthrie. Viewers (us included) were fond of Ann and turned off by Matt’s tyrannical behavior. (HIS reputation will never be the same.) Ann’s fans are tuning out in droves and ratings for the show are disappointing – especially since the Olympic games ended. Best of All, Radaronline reports that Angelina Jolie has expressed her outrage at Ann’s treatment – she and Ann worked together to bring awareness to Darfur, among other things, and struck up a friendship. Angelina says if NBC wants to interview her or Brad in the future, they will ONLY do it with Ann.

We are SO tired of hearing about how Ann Curry is being forced out of NBC’s Today Show because she and Matt Lauer “lack chemistry.” Actually Matt is concerned that ratings have gone down and rival Good Morning America actually beat them for a few days. Matt had to blame SOMEONE didn’t he? We suggest he take a close look at his lame producers who orchestrate absurdly unhealthy cooking segments on the show- loaded with fat and sugar and salt. These are followed by weight loss exercise segments and alarming obesity health warning segments. How do these anchors keep a straight face? While Matt Lauer has a questionable private life, Ann Curry comes across as decent, honest and very likeable. She’s unpretentious and gorgeous without having the hard edge of a beauty contestant. She’s the reason we put up with those inane cooking and cheezy fashion segments on the show. Ann has suffered brutal criticism for no reason and Matt should have addressed the issue like a gentleman and defended her. This whole episode is disgraceful. She’s a scapegoat and we predict Ann will go on to bigger and better things than Matt Lauer. TEAM CURRY all the way!
Dina Lohan’s startling interview with Matt Lauer on The Today Show was more revealing than she ever imagined. Matt approached the subject of Lindsay’s substance problems with concern, but Dina’s attitude was hostile and dismissive from the get-go. When Matt pointed out that Lindsay had been in rehab FOUR times, Dina insisted it was TWO times, but he documented each of Lindsay’s visits. Dina couldn’t admit she was wrong and went on to deny that her daughter had serious drug issues and blamed everyone – including the judge – for Lindsay’s dilemma. Her chilling denial made the viewer feel even sorrier for the pathetic Lindsay. You got the distinct feeling that Dina would much rather talk about HERSELF than her daughter.
