Matt Lauer and his Dutch model wife of 12 years are going their separate ways after Matt played a little hide-the-sausage with a couple of Canucks a few months back. Radar Online reports
Annette Lauer accused [Matt] of cheating during the Today Show’s on-site coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where Matt was often spotted boozing and flirting with two pretty Canadian broadcasters.
Annette, reportedly informed of her husband’s flirting by the wife of another staffer, confronted Lauer upon his return home.
52-year-old Lauer has since moved out. According to a Today show insider, the couple has been living apart for two months, and fed-up Annette is no longer wearing her wedding ring.
This isn’t the first time Lauer has been accused of cheating on his wife. Nor is it the second time. Two years after they were married, Annette found out that Matt had been boning a married woman all throughout their engagement, and then in 2006 she filed for divorce amid rumors that he’d been schlepping some yet-unnamed slut in New York. However, she subsequently withdrew the petition after one month for unknown reasons (i.e. several large pieces of jewelery). I have to admit, I really don’t feel sorry for her. She brought this on herself. You know how that old saying goes — fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me; fool me three times, there’s a good chance I have tertiary-stage syphilis and it’s eating holes in my brain. Somebody might want to think about taking a trip to the free clinic.
UPDATE: Matt Lauer is adamently denying this and swears they’re still living together in matrimonial bliss. Also, spell check suggested “schelpping” instead of “schtupping.” I do know my German from my Yiddish, I swear.
