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.

Kathie Lee is a big mouth "B" she and Matt are two of a kind, mean spirited and disgusting. Cannot stand either one of these gutter snipes.

Matt Lauer and Kathy Lee being gone is a Win/Win situation. Go for it NBC.

I thought the segment she does on the show was akin to a PSA about the dangers of alcoholism, and then I realized that she actually takes herself seriously. I don't understand why she would ever believe she has any credibility or large enough following to assert her wants to NBC executives. She is easily replaced, and if Matt Douchebag Lauer can be ousted, she is fair game to be out of a job next. A guy as arrogant as Lauer isn't grateful for KLG's support, and probably would prefer her to shut up. For once I would honestly concur with him.

There aren't too many people that like him and there aren't too many people that would miss him. Bye, bye Matt...Don't let the door hit ya in the ass on your way out!

With any luck, the loud mouthed, crass woman will leave herself in protest.

If you look at the still picture from the video, it looks like Kathie Lee is well aquainted with her mouth wide open look... was probably getting ready for her daily protein infusion...

Ok! Where is the Revolt? All I see is negative comments on Matt (who throws friends under the bus) Lauer. maybe Kathie Lee can answer why Ann Curry work does not make her free. I feel sorry for those people who sit next to Matt as they will have instantly low rating. Has Kathie Lee looked the latest Reader Digest readings on Her Man Lauer? Lower than CLARENCE THOMAS!

Anyone who drinks wine in the morning, is already revolting.
