Paula Deen had her first interview following the controversy over racist comments in a deposition and her subsequent firing from the Food Network -- and to say her conversation with 'Today' host Matt Lauer was a tearfully brutal affair would be a vast understatement.
A man attempted to commit suicide -- or at least garner a lot of attention -- in front of a live taping of the 'Today' show. And while the program has been in a ratings slump, this probably wasn't what it had to mind to fix that.
Since Chris Brown apparently can't afford to pay valets, he needs you to buy his upcoming album. And the latest stop in his Public Contrition Tour took him to the 'Today' show, where he apologized for beating up on-again-off-again lover Rihanna.
And he made that apology ... on April Fools Day. So that seems legit.
Is NBC's long running morning news program 'Today' about to get a major facelift?
Over the past couple of days, news has circulated that hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira plan to leave the show when their contracts expire. Lauer in particular was at the center of Internet rumors today after reports claimed he had informed NBC executives of his departure, which would be in Dec. 2012.
