Katie Couric can’t contain her smile after Matt Lauer firing


Katie Couric doesn’t appear to have a care in the world – despite her former colleague Matt Lauer getting canned from the “Today” show on Tuesday.

His former co-anchor was spotted walking around Los Angeles on Thursday with an ear-to-ear grin on her face, looking unfazed by the NBC drama.

Amid Lauer’s sexual misconduct scandal, a 2012 clip of Couric from “Watch What Happens Live” resurfaced in which she discussed Lauer’s “annoying” habit.

“He pinches me on the ass a lot,” Couric said during the show’s “Plead the Fifth” segment.

NBC announced Wednesday morning that Lauer had been fired over sexual harassment allegations by an employee. Page Six later exclusively revealed that he allegedly sexually harassed an employee at the Sochi Olympics.

Other women have since stepped forward with accusations of misconduct against Lauer.

Lauer broke his silence on the matter Thursday morning.

“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions,” he said in a statement. “To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.

“As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.”

Later in the day, he was photographed in the Hamptons.
