Matt Lauer Attends Former Co-Worker’s Wedding Six Years After Today Show Firing
Matt Lauer, 65, recently made headlines when he attended the wedding of his former Today show colleague, Jennifer Long, alongside other familiar faces from the morning news program. The wedding took place at the Union League Club in New York City, where Lauer not only reunited with his former co-host Savannah Guthrie but also mingled with Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin, Sheinelle Jones, and Al Roker, who officiated the nuptials, as reported by Page Six.
A Long-Awaited Reunion
Just six years after being terminated from NBC due to inappropriate sexual behavior, Matt Lauer’s appearance at the wedding sparked a wave of speculations and reactions from fans and media alike. Despite the scandal that led to his ousting from the Today show, the reunion with his former colleagues appeared to be cordial and friendly, with Lauer reportedly introducing his girlfriend, Shamin Abas, to the guests.
A Cordial Setting
While at the wedding, Savannah Guthrie was accompanied by her husband, Mike Feldman, and the group was seen engaging with guests, taking selfies, and evidently enjoying each other’s company. Despite Lauer’s previous rift with some of his former co-workers, the event seemed to provide an opportunity for a pleasant gathering, leaving the question of whether Lauer and Guthrie interacted directly unanswered.
Life After Today Show
Since his departure from the Today show, Matt Lauer’s social circle and lifestyle have evidently undergone a significant shift. Reports have indicated that he largely disconnected from former friends and acquaintances, and while his life post-scandal has been described as “a fairly good life,” it has been notably different from his pre-scandal days, suggesting that the repercussions of the scandal continue to impact his personal and professional life.
