Kathie Lee Gifford

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.

GO MATT GO!!! No really, go... no one likes you. That's why ratings have dropped. Gifford can go too.

Hey Kathi, who's we? You have fleas? I'm sure when she says "WE"LL" she's speaking of herself, her brain dead husband and brainwashed kids.

The best thing that could happen to that show is Matt Lauer leaving. If you want to join him have at it there are better anchors out there to take your place.

The best thing NBC could do to please viewers would be to get rid of Lauer and Kathie Lee. This is the consensus not only in various media outlet comments but people I hear say so daily in life Keep it up, NBC, I'm sure GMA and CBS applaud your ignorance.
