Is Katie Couric Matt Lauer’s Greatest Regret?

Matt Lauer Bummer

Water Mill’s Matt Lauer appeared on The Tonight Show recently. When Jay Leno asked how Lauer’s doing with the recent criticism over his role in the Today show’s ratings drop, Lauer said, “It’s been an interesting year—no question about it…I’m not a guy who complains. I love this job, I really do.”

Adding a little more insult to Lauer‘s recent series of “injuries,” his beautiful former Today cohost Katie Couric told Howard Stern on her daytime talk show Katie that she never slept with Lauer because she’s not attracted to him that way. Couric said they have a “brother-sister type relationship.” But she did tell Stern on his radio show that she had “little crush” on Lauer when he was the anchor at NBC’s New York City affiliate WNBC. “I thought he was so funny and so quick,” she said, but nothing ever happened between them, probably because he never made a move.

Bummer, Matt.

In other news about the happy bro-sis duo, Couric said there had been “cautious overtures” about her returning to the Today show at one point. “For me that was the best job,” she said.
