Matt Lauer Is "Weak And Broken And Ashamed" After Today Show Firing

Matt Lauer Is

"A condition of the consent granted to Orange Lakes Ltd.to purchase the lease for Hunter Valley Station is that the individuals with control of that company must continue to be of good character", Lisa Barrett, deputy chief executive of policy and overseas investment, said in her statement, referencing the holding company owned by Lauer and Roque.

Matt Lauer may have been ousted from the Today show after he was sacked from NBC for inappropriate sexual behavior, but the journalist will still appear on movie screens, as Lauer has cameos in two new releases - Lady Bird and I, Tonya.

"Sunday Today" host Willie Geist and "Today" anchors Megyn Kelly and Hoda Kotb have also been rumored to be in the running.

Lauer, as we've reported, was suddenly fired last week after an accusation of sexual harassment and assault of a female subordinate at the 2014 Winter Olympics. "He plans to disappear and play golf", a source told the New York Post.

"I have no words for her husband", Henri reportedly told the publication.

Bohemian Rhapsody Finds A Director to Replace Bryan Singer
A representative for Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. says Monday that Singer is no longer the director of the film. The studio is expected to announce a replacement director later this week.

Roque, a Dutch-born former model, was seen getting breakfast after dropping her children off at school Wednesday in Sag Harbor, New York. "They are not together trying to work it out", her father, Henri, stated. Since then multiple women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

He apologized in a statement Thursday, but said that some of the accusations are "untrue". "I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly". To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.

He added, "Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching, and I'm committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job", he continued. It's been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love.

The 76-year-old added his daughter is "feeling shocked" and "is now having sorrow for her children".

In a new development that's gotta sting, the Today show is dominating morning ratings, and they're already eyeing Craig Melvin as a replacement for the disgraced TV anchor.
