The overwhelming celebrity Halloween costume theme this year seems to be dressing up like other celebrities. In particular, it seems like everyone wanted to work their own version of Miley Cyrus’ now infamous MTV Video Music Awards ‘twerking’ outfit. If there is anything we really wanted to see less than Kelly Ripa dressed as Miley Cyrus, though, it was Miley Cyrus dressed as Lil Kim.
The worst dressed vote for celebrity Halloween costumers this year, however, goes to Matt Lauer made up as Pamela Anderson from Baywatch. We will never be able to unsee that image. Seriously, we are feeling the need for some eyeball bleach after seeing Matt Lauer with boobs.
Woops! It may get a little UN-COMFORTABLE after the Today Show ends this morning! While introducing an upcoming segment about the right age to get married, Meredith Vieira bumbled into the dicey subject of co-host Matt Lauerâ€™s not-so-great marital history.
After relaying that she’d gotten married in her 30s, Meredith turned to Matt and asked when he had gotten married. Er. There was an embarrassed and embarrassing pause from Matt, whose first marriage ended in divorce and whose second wife filed for divorce before withdrawing the suit. Here’s how the dialog went!
MATT LAUER: Then weâ€™re going to talk about marriage. What is the right age to get married?
MEREDITH VIEIRA: I donâ€™t know. I got married in my 30s. When did you get married?
MATT LAUER: Ah . . .
Someone off camera can be heard yelling â€œnice!â€
MEREDITH VIEIRA: Anyway, Iâ€™m sorry. Oh geez.
MATT LAUER: The average age â€” letâ€™s just start this show over. On average in this country women get married at 26, men at 28. Those are the averages. But how does your age impact your choice of a mate, and your chances for living happily ever after? Probably a more important question. Weâ€™ll get into that later.
MEREDITH VIEIRA: I donâ€™t think Iâ€™m going to be one of those that lives happily ever after, after this show!
Fortunately for Meredith, Matt seemed to be taking her fumble like a good sport. Still, it was must-see TV!
