Today, the show’s fans are supporting Hoda Kotb after her armor comments amid Savannah breakup rumors
TODAY Show host Hoda Kotb has received positive feedback from fans after reacting fondly to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s romantic wedding.
In reference to women who have had their hearts broken, Hoda said “they get that armor and that’s how they go through life.”
Hoda has spoken openly about her breakup with ex Jeff Schifflin earlier this year.
Appreciating Hoda’s vulnerability and wisdom, a fan on Instagram backed up her feelings on-air with, “What a wonderful perspective! Magnificent.”
Hoda and her co-host Savannah Guthrie recently caused a stir with rumors of a feud behind the camera.
The feud led to a boost in ratings for the show which is now neck and neck with Good Morning America in terms of viewership.
The Sun previously reported that Savannah and Hoda secretly “can’t stand each other” off camera despite appearing to be best friends on TV.
An insider explained: “Savannah is the boss. After Matt Lauer was ousted, Savannah took over and she really wanted Willy Geist as Hoda, but her ratings just didn’t measure up to the network. .”
“Hoda maneuvered Savannah and got the spot,” they shared.
The source added that Savannah “considers herself a real journalist”, while Hoda is considered “the lighthearted one who drank wine with Kathy Lee Gifford”.
Savannah and Hoda reunited on the morning show Monday, after some time apart.
The former was on vacation last week, while Hoda was off the previous week.
Hoda and Savannah made history as the first pair of women to co-host the Today show after decades on the air.
During a celebration of the show at the Paley Center last month, Savannah – who shared duties with former Today show host Matt Lauer before the 64-year-old was fired – spoke about the arrival of Hoda.
She shared, “All I know is at that moment I felt like I could drown if Hoda hadn’t reached down and grabbed my hand.
