Matt Lauer leaves NYC to explain firing to oldest son

After being fired by NBC for sexual misconduct with a colleague, Matt Lauer left town and headed to see his 16-year-old son, Jack, to “explain what happened and why he was fired in person.”

Lauer is close to his eldest son, according to sources, and drove to his school Wednesday morning for a man-to-man talk about the scandal that ended his 20-year career at “Today.”

The source said, “Matt’s first thought was that he needed to explain this to his son Jack in person, as it would be far more painful for him to read about it in the press and online. Matt drove out to Jack’s prep school this morning.”

A rep for Lauer declined to comment.

Lauer has previously described having awkward conversations with Jack. Earlier this year, Lauer said on “Today” how he tried to have a “sex talk” with a then-15-year-old Jack, and it didn’t work out. He explained, “I tried to have ‘the talk’ in the car. I don’t remember exactly what prompted it, but [my wife] Annette and I talked about it that I needed to have the talk. So I had this car ride and … I said, ‘Jack, you know, I do have to…’ and he looked at me and said, ‘Not happening. I’m not gonna have this talk. I know, I know everything, you don’t have to do that.’”

Meanwhile, Lauer’s former model wife, Annette, has remained silent. She briefly filed for divorce in 2006, claiming she suffered “cruel and inhumane” treatment from Lauer, who she said in legal documents was controlling and demonstrated “extreme anger and hostility.” She withdrew the divorce filing a month later.

Monica Lewinsky blasts HLN on Twitter

Categories: celebrities

Monica Lewinsky had a wonderfully withering comeback to CNN’s HLN after it announced it was revisiting “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal” with a two-hour special.

The former White House intern and now anti-bullying campaigner cannily corrected HLN’s announcement on Twitter, crossing out ‘The Monica Lewinsky Scandal’ and proffering a better, more historically appropriate title, especially in light of recent events. Lewinsky wrote, “HLN to revisit ‘The Starr Investigation. The Clinton Impeachment’ with two hour special.”

She added in a perfectly pointed note to HLN, “Fixed it for you. You’re welcome.”

Within hours her post had garnered nearly 5,000 likes, and supportive comments such as from @Cassandra0Paige, “Hey @CNN how about you stop victimizing Monica? Fix your headline. It’s post-Weinstein 2017 for f**k’s sake! Have we learned NOTHING this year?”

From @shelbeeray: “Once again they use a woman to punish another woman and completely fail to hold the man responsible.”

And @ThreeRingSam, “Yeah they keep forgetting it was about perjury and had basically nothing to do with you at all.”

Plus, from Sharon Robles? @MyClientsLoveMe, “Yep. When it’s a woman, it’s a ‘scandal’ when it’s a man, it’s an ‘investigation’.”

Is this Gwyneth’s engagement ring?

Gwyneth Paltrow was pictured wearing a gold ring on her left hand in the days before news broke of her engagement to Brad Falchuk.

The 45-year-old actress attended the Baby2Baby Gala on November 11 and flaunted a large jeweled ring on her wedding finger.

It was revealed on Tuesday that the actress is engaged to the 46-year-old American Horror Story producer who she’s been dating for three years.

And it seems the couple have kept the big news under wraps for a whole year, according to ET.

‘She’s had the ring a long time,’ a source told the site.

A source told UsWeekly this week: ‘They both knew it would happen, but it wasn’t a big thing to them because they were both in long marriages before. There wasn’t a rush.’

‘CBS This Morning’ is ‘begging’ Oprah to fill in for Charlie Rose

“CBS This Morning” wants Oprah Winfrey to save the day and fill in for Charlie Rose after he was axed due to a shocking sexual harassment scandal, sources exclusively tell Page Six.

“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” said a TV insider. “Not full time .?.?. But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”

Reports have said a rotating cast of CBS News talent will step in. But the network’s not exactly known for its deep bench of stars compared to rivals NBC and ABC. Suggested Rose replacements on Twitter have so far included Tony Dokoupil and Bianna Golodryga. Little-known Jeff Glor was just tapped to take over “CBS Evening News.”

Winfrey joined CBS’ “60 Minutes” in September, and she is best friends with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King. An insider said of the strategy to land Winfrey: “Unless you get a superstar [on the show], it’s always going to be, ‘Charlie’s missing.’”

Kathy Griffin finally sells Hollywood Hills mansion

After more than a year on the market, beleaguered insult comedian Kathy Griffin, wrapping up a world tour, sold “Wings,” her former mansion in the Hollywood Hills for $4,492,500, substantially below the original asking price of $5.495 million but still a small fortune above the $2.85 million she paid for the dramatically sited residence in the spring of 2004. The three-story, elevator-equipped mansion, behind gates and positioned high above the street with panoramic canyon views, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and six fireplaces in 8,098 square feet.

This is the same house where she recorded her neighbor screaming like a NYC trucker into her gate. So enjoy your new home.

Charlie Rose off the air over alleged sexual misconduct

Charlie Rose is facing swift backlash from broadcast networks Monday after lurid allegations were launched against him by staffers.

CBS has suspended him from “60 Minutes” — and both PBS and Bloomberg will discontinue their nightly airing of “Charlie Rose” — following the report published by The Washington Post.

PBS said in a statement that they were “shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations.”

“We are immediately suspending distribution of “Charlie Rose,” they added.

PBS added, however, that Rose’s show is independently produced and not funded or supervised by the network.

In a statement, Bloomberg said: “We are deeply disturbed to learn of these allegations and are immediately suspending the show from airing on Bloomberg TV.”

At CBS — where Rose serves as a correspondent for “60 Minutes” — sources said his days were numbered.

“This is pretty bad, we don’t think he can come back from this,” a source said.

“He has been suspended, and it appears to be likely that more allegations could come out in the coming days, from current or former CBS employees.”

Charles Manson Officially Dead at 83: CONFIRMED

Charles Manson — the man who masterminded one of the most heinous murder sprees in American history — is dead  … this according to the sister of his famous victim.

Debra Tate tells TMZ she received a call from the prison telling her Manson died 8:13 PM Sunday.

Manson was recently wheeled into Bakersfield hospital and escorted by 5 uniformed cops. Our sources had said at the time, “It’s just a matter of time.” He was covered in blankets and looked ashen in the gurney.

Manson was taken from Corcoran State Prison to the hospital back in January where he was being treated for intestinal bleeding.

As we reported … Manson was supposed to undergo surgery but it was deemed too risky.

Manson has been locked up since his arrest in December 1969 for the Tate-LaBianca murders. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit the slayings, which occurred one day after the next in August 1969.

Manson was not present, but members of the so-called Manson Family slaughtered 5 people, including actress Sharon Tate, at her home in the Beverly Hills area. Manson’s goal was to start a race war he called “helter skelter” … from the Beatles song.
