Katie Couric stopped by the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Clubhouse on May 1. During her appearance, the TV news anchor spoke about the allegations of sexual misconduct surrounding her former Today show colleague Matt Lauer. And she also clarified some of her own comments that resurfaced after news of the scandal broke.
"You've already spoken about it ad nauseam, but I have to ask," Andy began. "The day the Matt Lauer thing broke, you started trending on Twitter immediately because a clip surfaced of you on [WWHL] from 2012. I played Plead the Fifth with you and I said to you, what's Matt Lauer's most annoying habit? And you said he used to pinch you on the ass. I laughed thinking you were joking. Were you joking?" Watch the clip above to hear Couric's response and watch the clip below to see the 2012 moment Andy referenced.
Earlier in the day, the Today show alum also spoke about Lauer during her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. "It’s been a very painful time for a lot of people who worked with Matt, knew him, and care about him, who never witnessed this behavior that is now obviously being talked about,” Couric shared. “I don’t know the full extent of all these things that happened. I can only talk about my personal experience and I was always treated respectfully and appropriately.”
