Dear Matt Lauer…

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Everyone hates Matt Lauer. Like seriously, you guys. EVERYONE. Except for me. So I’m standing up for him against some of his fiercest* Twitterenemies.

* The first 4 people who came up when I searched “hate Matt Lauer”.


Ted, don’t mean to get all esoteric here, but isn’t that really a chicken and the egg kind of thing? If there was no Matt Lauer, would mindless blather be coming out of his face? And if mindless blather wasn’t coming out of his face, would he really be Matt Lauer? So to answer your question: it’s impossible to hate one or the other since they are interdependent, therefore your question is flawed. Try again.

Notorious P.A.T., your twitter name is as bad as the term “swag pop”. If you’re going to hate Matt you should also hate yourself.

Kelstar, you didn’t necessarily say you hated Matt Lauer but your implication is that he should be more like Kathie Lee and Hoda and I say “cheers to that!”. Can someone at the Today Show please get Matty a 6am glass of Chard? I think we all agree it will do wonders.

Sabby, you had me at Nicolas Cage (duh), but lost me at Norah Jones. Who hates Norah Jones? I’ll tell you who: my ex-boyfriend and he was a real dick. Take a long hard look in the mirror sabby, are you a real dick? If so, maybe Matt Lauer isn’t the problem, maybe the problem is you.

Dear Kathie Lee Gifford…

Friday, January 7th, 2011

In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Kathie Lee Gifford revealed that she’s never turned on a computer.  If I ever had to have a conversation with Kathy Lee I think it would be like talking to an aborigine, or a 3-year-old, or a rapper.  Not much common ground there.  I, on the one hand, am addicted to email and Facebook and twitter and blogging and internet porn (just kidding, mom… that was a joke. I don’t even know where to find internet porn).  Kathy Lee, on the other hand, is trashed off mimosas on national television every day before noon.

Come to think of it, maybe she’s doing something right.
