Will Hoda make as much money as Matt? Plus, I, Tonya is a movie you must see! And KimYe’s son is recovering from a hospital visit! More in today’s Hollywood Stories with Christine Lee!
Hoda Kotb is not making anywhere NEAR what Matt Lauer was making at the end of his run on the Today Show (he was pulling in $25 million per year), but she’ll be making the same as Savannah Guthrie — $7 million. That’s nothing to sneeze at, but Megyn Kelly makes $20 million! Soooo they CAN pay women, but they aren’t? And their excuse is that she hasn’t been there as long as Matt? 🤔😒
Matt, meanwhile, reached out to Hoda to congratulate her!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son, Saint, is recovering from pneumonia. He spent a few nights in a hospital. He’s okay now.
My precious baby boy is so strong! After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of year was challenging. Pneumonia is so scary. I just want to thank every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock. We are so grateful for you all! He’s home and all better. He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint 👼🏽

One of the best movies Christine has seen in a long time is I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie and Allison Janney. It’s about the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan story. There’s more to the movie than meets the eye. Be prepared to be devastated; it’s really hard to watch, but it’s impossible to not watch. Christine thinks it will win many awards. And ABC is airing a special, Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story where Tonya Harding finally admits she knew a little bit more than she let on!
