PageSix revealed that Matt does not have any plans to stage a professional comeback in the news business and all he wants is to play golf in his Hamptons hometown.

Because playing golf in the Hamptons is definitely a thing that regular Joes do, right?

'Matt has no intention of returning to public life, ' the insider stated. The report claims that during Lauer's 20 years at Today, he immediately "killed off" any man who could potentially succeed him, including at one point, Billy Bush, David Gregory and Josh Elliott.

Another source added that Lauer is bent on staying out of the spotlight so he can "focus on his family".

"There are also the kids, I don't know what she's doing or who they are going to stay with", Henri said.

While the reporter has been seen in Sag Harbor with his wedding band still on, his wife Annette Roque has been recently spotted without her wedding ring. "She's painfully thin. People at her kids' school are concerned".

But don't put money on a reconciliation.

US Health Care Spending Decreases in 2016
Spending on private health insurance rose 5.1 percent to $1.1 trillion, which was slower than the 6.9 percent growth in 2015. Medicaid expenditures rose 3.9% to $565.5 billion in 2016, accounting for 17% of total national healthcare spending.

Of the scandal, Roque's father, Henri, told the Daily Mail, "I have no words for her husband".

He's married to ESPN sports anchor Lindsay Czarniak; they have two children together.

The news of Lauer's inability to recover from the fiasco comes a few days after a report in Us Weekly. "She and Matt were really close".

Last week New Zealand's overseas investment regulator said it was reviewing the agreement for the farm on South Island, since Lauer's alleged misconduct may violate New Zealand's behavior clause.

Lack continued, "We were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident".

Lauer broke his silence about the allegations against him on November 30.

Other women have since come forward with accusations, with one telling The New York Times that Lauer had sexually assaulted her in his office in 2001. "They knew Matt was flirty and playful and may have had relationships over the years, but what they knew of those relationships was that they were consensual, and they weren't aware they went beyond that", the source told Us. "I have no words for her husband".
