**Longtime NBC News anchor Matt Lauer has been fired over inappropriate sexual behavior, the network confirmed.

The veteran “Today” host was let go after a colleague complained about the inappropriate behavior, NBC News chief Andrew Lack said in a memo published on Wednesday’s show.

This was the first time an employee had complained about Lauer during his 20 years at “Today,” Lack continued, but executives believe there would be more allegations.

An emotional Savannah Guthrie, his co-host since 2012, broke the news at the opening of “Today.”

**Everyone thinks Jennifer Lawrence is that down-to-Earth girl next door you would definitely be best friends with, but if you ever run into her in public, you may feel differently about her.

In an interview with Adam Sandler for “Variety“, she said, “Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a-hole. That’s the only way of defending myself.”

“[Fans will be] like, ‘Can I have a selfie?’ And I’m like, ‘No!’ I go, ‘It’s my day off.’ Like, if it’s Sunday, I’m like, ‘It’s Sunday, I’m not working today.'”


**The Grammy nominees came out yesterday, and Jay-Z has more than anyone with eight. Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars are next with seven and six respectively.
Jay-Z was recognized in three of the big categories: Album, Song, and Record of the Year.

The Internet seems to think Ed Sheeran got snubbed the hardest by the Grammys, since he wasn’t nominated in the major categories. He was supposed to be a big player in the major categories, but his album “Divide” and song “Shape of You” only got two nominations in the pop categories.

CBS will air the ceremony on January 28th. Speaking of Bruno Mars, his “24 Karat Magic Tour Special” airs tonight on CBS as well.

**The Jersey Shore cast is officially reuniting on MTV. The announcement was made during the premiere of Floribama Shore on Monday, November 27.

The original cast members — including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino — will come together for Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

One main character will NOT be there- Sammy “Sweetheart” Giancola.

Everyone was invited to come on the show but Sammi was the only one who didn’t want to. A big reason for that was because she didn’t want to be around Ronnie,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “She has been enjoying her life off of TV and didn’t want to change that.”

Jersey Shore Family Vacation is set to premiere in 2018.
