Katie Couric in 2012: Matt Lauer ‘Pinches Me on the Ass a Lot’


With Matt Lauer’s firing from NBC today over allegations of sexual misconduct, a years-old comment about him from Katie Couric is getting some renewed attention.

Couric, of course, co-hosted the TODAY with Lauer for years, and in 2012, she made a remark to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that didn’t get much pick-up at the time.

Cohen played a game of “Plead the Fifth” with Couric and asked her at one point, “You co-hosted the Today Show with Matt Lauer for 15 years. What is Matt’s most annoying habit?”

“He pinches me on the ass a lot,” she responded.
