Jun 21, 2013  •  Post A Comment

Matt Lauer and other on-air personalities at the NBC morning show “Today” were visibly unhappy with Paula Deen after the embattled celebrity chef abruptly canceled an interview that had been scheduled for this morning.

Deen was expected to talk about news that surfaced this week about her past use of the N-word, as previously reported.

The Huffington Post, which put up a video clip of Lauer and others at “Today” discussing Deen’s cancellation (see below), reported: “Deen was supposed to be interviewed about the stunning legal deposition that shows her admitting to having used the N-word and to a seemingly never-ending host of other racially problematic things. But she pulled out with no notice, leaving Matt Lauer hanging.”

Here’s the clip:


  1. Stiffed? This is one classy word choice in a story about word choice.

  2. Spare me?! News worthy; NOT! I have been a Matt supporter but this morning Today looked desperate!!

  3. Ahhhh….Matt is peeved because someone cancelled out on his show….boo-hoo! Can’t blame her, who wants to be on this loser show.

  4. Matt reminds me of the little mousey character on Grimm. Anyone else ever notice it? I think he is still waiting for the bike recall for lack of balance! You go girl (Matt)!
