Megyn kelly replacing savannah guthrie

From Delish

Once again, Today anchor Savannah Guthrie is having to confront online scammers.

Right now, there are false advertisements circulating around social media claiming that the host is leaving her job at Today to spend more time on her skincare line. Of course, this is causing a lot of her fans to wonder: Is Savannah leaving the Today show for good?

If you were worried that these rumors might be true, you can breathe easy. The Today co-host hopped on Twitter on Tuesday to confirm to a curious fan that the reports about her saying goodbye to the program to “focus on her beauty business” are 100% not true.

Yes this is not true! It is a scam! https://t.co/H4D1qJOJRR

– Savannah Guthrie (@SavannahGuthrie) January 8, 2019

In fact, Savannah doesn’t even have a skincare line, which she made clear back in September of 2018 when she was first fighting the scheme.

Sadly, these fake stories and ads have been an ongoing struggle for many celebrities. Besides Savannah, Lara Spencer, Dr. Oz, Joanna Gaines, and Kim Kardashian have all had to deal with scammers trying to use their names to sell products. Lara even vowed that she would be working with authorities to find out who was behind all these bogus celebrity ads:

While it’s good to know that Savannah isn’t walking away anytime soon, her story is a good reminder to always follow these guidelines of internet safety from The Good Housekeeping Institute – especially when shopping online:

  1. Be careful of links sent from an unknown number. You should never, ever click on a link sent to you if you don’t recognize the number.
  2. Keep your eyes peeled for bad grammar or typos. Real and distinguished businesses proofread their official communications.
  3. Be cautious with your personal info. Always be conservative with the information you provide to any website, and make sure that you’re entering it through the retailer’s website directly.

Savannah Guthrie will still host Thanksgiving Day coverage, despite eye injury

Get well soon! @SavannahGuthrie is on the phone to give more insight on the eye injury she sustained after her son threw a toy truck that tore the retina in one of her eyes. @DrNatalieTV is also here to help explain the healing process and what she can expect. pic.twitter.com/7Tvj58rtY7

Savannah Guthrie called in to the “Today” show Wednesday to discuss a recent eye injury following an incident with son Charley’s toy train, though she will still be able to participate in NBC’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade coverage, a source told Page Six.

“Charley threw a toy train right at my eye and it tore my retina,” the 47-year-old co-anchor began.

“It happened last week, actually, and then I lost my vision in my right eye about 24 hours later, and then it turned out to be kind of serious. They were afraid my retina would detach. They told me to just take it easy and they’ve been doing a bunch of laser procedures, trying to avoid having to do the full surgery,” she continued.

Guthrie also expressed her gratitude for the doctors, who’ve “been so careful with me.”

“I really did lose my vision in my right eye,” she said, adding, “It was so blurry from, not to get too gross, but there was so much blood inside the eye that it completely blocked my vision.”

Guthrie also said the doctors are “essentially trying to weld back this tear in the retina very carefully, and really trying hard to avoid the retina detaching.”

“It’s looking more hopeful,” she said.

During Guthrie’s call, Dr. Natalie Azar, an NBC News medical expert, also elaborated on the condition.

“Her vision loss is really apparently just from this vitreous hemorrhage, not hopefully from any detachment,” Azar explained. “Hopefully that blood will resorb and she will regain full vision.”

“I’m not supposed to jump up and down or anything because it’s kind of literally hanging by a thread,” Guthrie says. “I’m very positive because I think it’s going to be okay.”

Guthrie shares son Charley, 2, and daughter Vale, 5, with husband Michael Feldman.

‘Today Show:’ Why Were These Three Anchors Left Out of the Anniversary Montage?

Last week, NBC’s Today Show celebrated 25 years of hosting the show from Studio 1A off New York’s famous Rockefeller Plaza. To commemorate the occasion, the morning news program showed a five-and-a-half-minute montage of major highlights on Today since broadcasting from the location began, which included major news stories and the work of the show’s anchors, including Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie, and Craig Melvin, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Yet while they were showing clips spanning 1994 to the present, there were clearly some major anchors during that time period that didn’t make the cut for the tribute. Though reasons for some to be left out of the tribute video are somewhat obvious, that isn’t the case across the board. This has led to speculation for the omissions.

Matt Lauer

In November 2017, the Today Show was rocked by the firing of its main anchor Matt Lauer for inappropriate sexual behavior at work, as reported by USA Today. Lauer was the news reader on the morning news program in 1994 and rose through the ranks to become co-anchor in 1997. While one could argue that NBC made the correct decision in leaving Lauer out of the montage due to the reason for his firing, some viewers saw it as the network’s way of trying to rewrite history.

“Glad I’m not the only one disappointed that you left Matt Lauer out in your look back at 25 years on the Plaza. He deserved to lose his job BUT you can’t erase the huge role he played on “Today” during his 20+ years doing the news then hosting. You can’t rewrite history, @nbc,” one Twitter user posted. Another Twitter user wrote, “Erasing history guys? There was a ‘Matt Lauer’ there for a couple of years.”

Still, some praised NBC’s decision. “Shout out to the @TODAYshow editors for putting together an impressive piece celebrating 25 Years of Studio 1A without any footage Matt Lauer. You all are the real MVPs,” a Twitter user posted.

Ann Curry

Fans of the Today Show also noticed the omission of former anchor Ann Curry in the tribute. Curry, who Guthrie replaced, left the show in a highly publicized exit in 2012. According to the 2017 article in Vulture, the blame was put on Lauer for how Curry was forced out, leaving viewers with a bad taste in their mouths on how Curry was treated. Some speculate that having her in the montage would have stirred up negative memories for the network.

One Twitter user posted, “No Ann Curry? I guess that would remind viewers of the shoddy way she was treated, eh?” Another post read, “Where’s Ann Curry? She doesn’t deserve this snub.”

In 2018, Curry had said that she “wasn’t surprised” about the allegations against Lauer, according to USA Today.

Tamron Hall

A steady presence in Today’s third hour, Tamron Hall’s sudden departure saddened and surprised fans. Though much wasn’t said of the exit at the time in February 2017, many speculated her leaving was due to the hiring of Megyn Kelly. Hall recently spoke of the situation to George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s Good Morning America, according to Deadline.

“They made an offer she shouldn’t refuse. And they made me an offer I could refuse,” Hall said of negotiations with NBC. “The last week I was on Today, I filled in for Savannah Guthrie, who’d gone on maternity leave. I filled in for Lester Holt , all while I was doing my MSNBC show plus shooting Deadline Crime. So I’m putting in all the work and then I’m told, ‘It doesn’t matter that you came in every time we called. We want something else.’ I wasn’t that ‘something else.’”

While Hall clearly was stung by the outcome, it looks like things are on the upswing for her both personally and professionally. She recently married boyfriend Steven Greener and gave birth to her first child, son Moses, as Deadline reports. Hall will also be heading her own syndicated daytime talk show starting in September of this year.

Though there have been no concrete explanations for deleting these three major anchors from the Today Show anniversary tribute, viewers seem to be very confident in their own conclusions.

It’s safe to say Hoda Kotb was missed on the Today show while she took a maternity leave.

Kotb returned to her co-anchor seat on the popular NBC morning show on Tuesday. The 55-year-old television personality took time off from her job in April when her and her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, adopted their second daughter, Hope. The couple is also parents to their 2-year-old daughter, Haley, whom they adopted in February 2017.

“I’ve had the best five months I ever could’ve imagined in my life,” an emotional Kotb said on-air to her co-anchor, Savannah Guthrie, as well as Today hosts Carson Daly and Al Roker. “I didn’t know what I was missing. And I was also excited to come back, and I thought to myself, when I watch Haley now and I watch Hope, I think, ‘I’m 55 and I get to be with them.’ And I know it was a lot of time to take off and I felt a little bad about it, but in reality, life is a blink, and you get this moment, and I decided that I was going to take it.”

“Could. Not. Be. Happier,” she added.

The Today show also shared a sweet video of a few celebrities sharing messages for Kotb upon her return, including Carrie Underwood and Julia Roberts.

“I miss you and your gorgeous face on TV every morning, so congrats again on your sweet girls, and welcome back, welcome home!” Underwood said.

Meanwhile, Roberts shared, “Got a couple of lucky daughters to have you as a mother and I think a person with a heart as big as yours, who’s as compassionate as you, needs no mothering advice.”

Blake Shelton also sent a flirty video message to Kotb that she played twice! “I’ve been waking up with you for a long time and I don’t want that to ever change again,” he quipped.

ET spoke with Kotb in May at Sesame Street’s Sesame Workshop 50th Anniversary Benefit Gala in New York City, where she talked about becoming a mom later in life.

“Some people are lucky enough to have their time in their 20s,” she said. “Some people, for whatever reason, need to wait a little longer. But waiting ain’t bad when this is at the end.”

TODAY anchor Savannah Guthrie opened up to Dr. Mehmet Oz on his show about the moments she began to lose her vision after an accident left her with a torn retina in her right eye.

Savannah’s son Charley, now 3, accidentally hit her in the eye with a toy train while he was sitting in her lap back in November, and at first, she said her doctors tried to treat the injury with lasers.

“I was just kind of under-reacting, I was like ‘Well, it’ll be alright, this will clear up,’” she told Oz in a preview of Monday’s episode. “Over time, I started to wonder, ‘Well what’s going on here? Is this really going to get better?’”

Savannah added the day before her surgery was her “darkest moment” when she started to have serious fears she wouldn’t be able to see out of her eye again.

Trending stories,celebrity news and all the best of TODAY.

“I had been living with it for three weeks, doing the show, not being able to see out of one eye, and I could feel that my vision just started to close in,” she described. “It started to get black and it was because you can’t live with a retina detachment for three weeks and not expect to start really losing your vision, and I was scared, that was the first time I was really scared.”

She said she called her surgeon to tell him she was losing her sight and he told her, “That’s why we’re operating tomorrow.”

Savannah, 47, told Oz she had tried not to think about what would happen if she had lost her sight.

“I tried really hard not to go there and do the parade of horribles and things that could happen that would be devastating,” she said. “You just have to take a deep breath and be grateful for what you have. That for me is the bottom line.”

The surgery was successful though, and Savannah can now see out of both of her eyes.

“I see the year 2020 but not 20/20 just yet,” Savannah told TODAY when she returned to work earlier this month. “My vision is blurry but will ultimately be mostly back to normal. I need a new prescription when my vision settles down.”

She told her co-anchor, Hoda Kotb, at the start of her first show back it meant a lot to her to be there.

“When I say ‘good to see you,’ I really mean it,” she said.

Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie missed work this morning as she undergoes retinal detachment surgery on her right eye, the result of an accident in which her two-year-old son Charley inadvertently poked the eye with a toy train.

The reason for Guthrie’s absence today was announced on air by hosts Craig Melvin and Hoda Kotb. “She’d had some laser treatments so now she’s actually going through the surgery,” Kotb said. “We wish for a very speedy recovery.” (Watch the video below).

Guthrie has kept viewers informed about the incident and her condition for the last few weeks – though she’d missed a couple days last month, she returned to co-host NBC’s coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade despite the injury. She underwent five laser treatments for the torn retina, and, according to Today, doctors had hoped the treatments would preclude surgery.

The anchor is expected to keep Today viewers updated on her progress, Kotb said. On Dec. 3, Guthrie told viewers that her vision was improving, but blurry, comparing it to wearing only one contact lens.

In an on-air conversation with ophthalmologist Dr. Annie Negrin last week, Guthrie was told that she might be required to position her face in a downward angle for up to three weeks following surgery.

Here is Guthrie speaking with Dr. Negrin, and explaining the accident:

Savannah Guthrie Suffers Eye Injury, Temporarily Loses Vision

The ‘Today’ show co-host has been absent from the NBC morning show as she recovers after tearing her retina in an accident with her son’s toy train.

Savannah Guthrie on Wednesday called in to the Today show to reveal that her absence this week is due to an eye injury. The morning show co-anchor explained that the injury came while playing with her 2-year-old son, Charley, whom she shares with husband Michael Feldman.

“Charley threw a toy train right at my eye, and it tore my retina,” she told her co-hosts. “It has a really pointy edge and he threw it right at me.”

Guthrie went on to say that she temporarily lost vision in her right eye because of the accident. “It happened last week, actually, and then I lost my vision in my right eye about 24 hours later,” she continued. “It turned out to be kind of serious. They were afraid my retina would detach. They told me to just take it easy and they’ve been doing a bunch of laser procedures to avoid having to do the whole surgery.”

The mom of two — who also shares daughter Vale, 5, with Feldman — added, “I really did lose my vision in my right eye. It was so blurry from — not to get too gross — but there was so much blood in my eye that it completely blocked my vision.”

Guthrie said that a full recovery is “looking more hopeful” as she is working with her doctors to “weld back” her retina. Still, she remains uncertain about her attendance at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday in New York, which she typically attends with the Today show team.

“I’m actually still hoping I can do the parade tomorrow,” said Guthrie. “I’m not supposed to jump up and down because it’s kind of literally hanging by a thread. But I’m very positive because I think it’s going to be OK.”

Before ending her call, Guthrie said that Charley “doesn’t even know what he did,” adding that she “wouldn’t want to make him feel bad” for causing her injury. “He hears me talking about it and he has no idea. I was FaceTiming with my mom to tell her and he came running in and said, ‘I did it!'” she said before joking, “He’s a bruiser!”
