Following his shocking sexual misconduct scandal and axing from Today, it is safe to say Matt Lauer’s career in television is ruined! However, we have learned that the former NBC co-host has a plan that will hopefully get him back on track!
Insiders have revealed the unexpected news that Matt and his wife Annette Roque are definitely not done, despite reports that she is planning to file a divorce.
One source noted that even though the marriage is pretty much over, Lauer is struggling to save it but for very wrong reasons!
Annette apparently threatened Matt that this was the last time he’d ever humiliate her.
‘She’d always suspected that Matt was cheating, but he denied it every time. Did she just take his word for it, and basically looked the other way? It very much appears to be the case.’
Annette is yet to kick her estranged husband out of their home but, of course, things are not Okay between them.
Lauer sleeps is a separate wing of the mansion – that way she doesn’t have to see him ever.
Besides, she spends most of her time taking care of her horses.
‘Her feeling is to let the kids spend time with their father, but Annette’s now going to be living her life on her terms,’ one insider explained.
Sadly, the chaos following the huge scandal took a significant toll on the kids, another source tells us.
Despite the fact that Matt and Annette tried their best to protect them from the drama, it turned out to be pretty impossible to keep them completely away from it.
‘There’s also a part of Annette that wants Matt to see and realize the damage he did to their family.’
Family wise, it’s pretty clear that the man messed everything up, but what about his career?
Is there any chance for him to have a comeback?
Apparently, Matt does want another job on TV, and he needs his wife’s help if he even dreams about getting back into the audience’s graces.
‘He never wanted to go out like this. He realizes that reconciling with Annette would help him to land another gig. He thinks, ‘If Annette can forgive me, so can America,’’ another insider explained.
