National Enquirer Article: Sleazy Matt Lauer Gets Ann Curry Fired & Could Have A Love Child With His Mistress!!!
The rumors that just won’t go away –MATT LAUER is caught up in an incredible shocking love child scandal!
On the heels of the “Today” host signing a fabulous $25 million-a-year contract with NBC, insiders at competing networks ignited nasty and unbelievable rumors that the 54-year-old married newsman fathered a child with his news anchor Natalie Morales.
“I heard that Matt had an extramarital affair with gorgeous Natalie, and he’s the father of one of her kids,” a rival network insider told The ENQUIRER. “Everyone’s buzzing that the boy looks just like him.”
Another industry source said: “The Matt Lauer love child scandal is the worst kept secret among the network morning shows.
“Everyone’s talking about it – even at NBC. He’s trying to get Ann Curry dumped as his co-anchor, and those loyal to her are also talking it up.
“Matt has enemies inside and outside the show’s Studio 1A, and if he’s got this giant skeleton in his closet, there are many who want to see it come out.”
These incredible rumors about Matt are swirling just as the morning show wars have heated up to a fever pitch. “Today’s” lost its lead over ABC’s “Good Morning America”, and CBS has relaunched its morning show with Gayle King as co-host, to stellar reviews.
But affable Matt is still keeping the “Today” show on top, while his enemies are busy trying to sink him with crazy stories.
The ENQUIRER discovered they have plenty of ammunition.
We revealed that Matt’s roller-coaster marriage suffered a near-fatal blow in 2006 when his wife Annette – pregnant with the couple’s third child – filed for divorce before withdrawing the legal papers a month later.
The divorce filing came while the unbelievable rumors were surfacing that Matt had gotten involved with Morales during the “Today” show’s coverage of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.
“They got very close and became extremely fond of one another,” a source told The ENQUIRER. “They saw each other when they returned to the U.S.”
Two years later, the rumors again began flying when Morales announced she was 12 weeks pregnant by husband Joe Rhodes.
“There was unbelievable talk that Matt could be the father of her baby!” revealed another show source.
Incredibly, when we gave Rhodes the opportunity to shoot down allegations that his wife was involved with Matt, he did not deny them to The ENQUIRER.
And Annette’s fears about Matt’s roving eye are well-grounded. Sources told The ENQUIRER that the balding broadcaster carried on with Jessica Thorman, a married Florida woman, until just months before his 1998 wedding to Annette.
Jessica’s husband Zoltan Molnar accused Lauer of wrecking their marriage, stating: “He’s not the goody-goody nice guy he looks like on TV!”
Published reports claim that Lauer is anxious to replace his “Today” show co-host Ann Curry, who assumed the position after Meredith Vieira left last year.
Sources say he wants a bigger personality beside him in the all-out ratings war that’s seen his former TV partner Katie Couric recently sit in on “GMA” to boost its ratings with NBC tapping charismatic Sarah Palin to join Lauer as a guest co-host.
“The morning show competition has never been hotter and Matt is the reigning king,” said the rival network source. “Everyone wants to see him get knocked off his pedestal and that’s why these outrageous baby daddy rumors have resurfaced.”
Morales, 39, remains part of the “Today” show team, reporting the news. She recently told an interviewer that she still manages to cook dinner every night for her investment banker husband Joe and their sons – Josh, 8, and Luke, 3.
Meanwhile, Lauer just bought 40 acres to build a horse farm down the road from his and Annette’s $15 million mansion in the Hamptons.
Said the network source: “I think he’s trying to keep Annette happy after years of causing her misery.”
E Article: John Travolta’s Gay Drama Continues He Is Sued For Libel By Controversial Gay Bathhouse Author Robert Randolph!!!

The John Travolta legal web just got stickier.
The recently put-upon actor and attorney Marty Singer have been sued by the author of a self-published book about gay bathhouse culture called You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again, who is accusing the pair of trade libel following Singer’s legal threats on behalf of Travolta when Gawker published an article about the parts of Randolph’s book concerning the actor’s sex life.
In a statement to E! News, a rep for Travolta called the lawsuit “absurd” and Singer called it “ridiculous.”
So, why does plaintiff Robert Randolph believe that the defendants have sullied his reputation?
According to the lawsuit filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Gawker published an article in November 2010 about Randolph’s book, entitled “The Secret Sex Life of John Travolta,” which detailed alleged encounters between himself and various celebrities, including Travolta.
Singer threatened legal action against Gawker Media, sending a cease-and-desist letter listing multiple reasons why Randolph couldn’t be believed—among them that he had, according to several people, spent time in mental institutions; his memory was distorted after a 2003 attack at a spa that left him brain damaged; and he returned to the spa where the violent attack at the hands of a fellow patron allegedly took place, only to be attacked again.
Gawker, in turn, posted the entire letter online.
“This letter exceeded the scope of any pre-litigation communications,” Randolph’s lawsuit contends.
Arguing that his memory is “fully operational,” the plaintiff states that Singer and Travolta acted with the intent of preventing Randolph’s book from selling and any other lucrative deals that could have arisen from the book’s success.
Randolph is asking for unspecified damages for trade libel, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage and negligent interference with prospective economic advantage.
In addition to calling the lawsuit absurd, Travolta’s rep predicted that a judge will promptly throw it out.
Singer, meanwhile, tells E! News: “This is a ridiculous lawsuit. It is based on our letter which was completely privileged under the law. We intend to sue the attorneys for malicious prosecution after the court promptly dismisses this baseless lawsuit.”
Most recently, Singer vehemently defended Travolta when he was sued by two masseurs who alleged sexual battery. Both have since dropped their lawsuits and are being represented by Gloria Allred, who was in turn sued by their original attorney, who accused Allred of poaching his clients. Allred has denied those claims.
