Kudos to Katie for that choice example of alliteration while still avoiding the use of the standard “deeply troubling.” She says that she had no clue that Matt was an (alleged) perv. And the Matt SHE knew wouldn’t do such awful things. Apparently she didn’t catch the subtle creep-signaling in TODAY The Musical?
“The whole thing has been very painful for me,” Couric, 61, tells PEOPLE. “The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any woman at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment.
Katie made an appearance on What What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2012 where she joked (?) that Matt “pinches me on the ass a lot” on the Today set. That clip made the rounds when Matt first got canned.
“I think I speak for many of my former colleagues when I say this was not the Matt we knew. Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship.”
