With two more women coming forward with accusations against disgraced NBC TV anchor Matt Lauer, a new video has emerged of him making creepy comments to his former co-host Meredith Vieira.
TMZ reports that the video is from October 2006 during commercial break in the Today show studio at Rockefeller Center. The camera appears to be checking its focus, zooming in on Matt Lauer who is seated on a couch. While the camera was still rolling, Vieira is getting her microphone adjusted and bends over to pick up some papers.
“Pretty sweater. Keep bending over like that. It’s a nice view,” Lauer says to Vieira.
Vieira co-hosted Today with Lauer from 2006 until 2011. Katie Couric took over for her, who also seems to have been subject to some questionable sexual behavior by Lauer.
In an interview on Bravo’s ‘What What Happens Live’ from 2012, host Andy Cohen asks Couric what Lauer’s worst habit is.
“He pinches me on the a** a lot,” Couric answers.
'Wow, I wouldn't have a problem with that,' Cohen said.
Lauer was fired from NBC’s Today show on Wednesday after a female staffer came forward with a complaint of ‘inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.’
