Kathie Lee Gifford

If Matt Leaves 'Today' ...

We'll Revolt!

Kathie Lee Gifford
says there will be a "revolt" at NBC if the powers that be allow Matt Lauer to leave the "Today" show, telling TMZ ... she'll do whatever it takes to keep him around.

Kathie Lee was leaving Rockefeller Center in NYC Monday morning when she made it clear -- she thinks Matt has been unfairly demonized in the media in the wake of Ann Curry's firing.

Kathie tells us, she wanted to buy a full page ad in an NYC newspaper defending her longtime co-worker, but Matt talked her out of it.

Bottom line, if Lauer ever gets ousted ... Kathie no happy.

The only reason she is on this show is old Frank pulled strings to get her this job and get her out of whats left of his hair. I'm just as sick of seeing her as with Lauer.

To TMZ Good Photoshopping there, you managed to get the guy she's with right out of the picture, but the pose still gives the game away. Is that how she hangs on to the job?

Years ago I watched Live w/Kathy & Regis & I wondered why she tried so hard to sell the nation on the idea that she was this great mom who was super concerned with everything her child did, everthing he did was super funny (even though her stories weren't) & why she was such a cahtterbox that Regis sometimes had a hard time getting a word in edgewise. You could see it in his face sometimes, then the story of Frank (her husband) Gifford's relationship with this other woman came out & that answered it all. Someone wasn't getting the attention she needed at home so she was trying to replace it when she got to the job. Normally I feel sorry for a person in that situation , but she seems too insecure to leave the old guy & if you're going to throw everything away on something that amounts to nothing the pity goes out the window. From what I've seen of her lately, I take it the attention she craves never was given. & yes I dislike Matt Lauer as much as most of the posters here.

Kathis Lee is the ONLY ONE Lauer is fooling- he is a smug, talentless, ugly looking rat. Kathie Lee's self deprecating humor act is old, and hoda's "Home Alone" facial expression (minus the hands on the face) whenever sex is mentioned, is embarassing and ridiculous for a woman her age. NBC needs to get appealing, charismatic (sorry Willie you're nice but DULL) employees and get rid of morons Lauer, Gifford and Kotb.
