"Matt Lauer emerges dancing and lip-syncing on daughter’s TikTok videos."

NY Post reports, with this montage:



Here's Romy Lauer's TikTok page. I'm not recommending following her — or anyone else on TikTok. I love TikTok, but only in the context of scrolling through whatever comes up for me in the endless stream labeled "For You." It's not a place to look at celebrities. It's just mellowly random and low key. Relaxing and mesmerizing. No politics.

I hate Matt Lauer. I've always hated Matt Lauer; well before the sex allegations.

And what the hell kind of name is Romy? Sounds like a pet's name.

Kevin said...

I've never looked at Tik Tok before today. My initial reaction is that it features a ton of material that is essentially r/upvotedbecausegirl

You can be a rapey dad and still want to support your (really) hot daughter* by showing up in her videos during your court appointed custody time, especially since there's a part for a second person and there's nobody else around. BONUS: it might help to soften your rapey image for any future legal entanglements AND if it works MAYBE I can get a job instead of just a tee time at Shinnecock or Pine Valley with Bryant Gumbel.


*Let's see if that's still the case after she tuns 18...

"And what the hell kind of name is Romy?"

Maybe the parents loved the fantastic movie "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion."

Dave Begley said...

Didn't see that movie.

But I guarantee everyone in the Althouse community will see - and love - "Frankenstein, Part II' by Dave Begley, Academy Award winner for best adapted screenplay.

I cite Blackstone twice, two big fires, one chase scene, three references to the 1931 movie and, of course, a bit part for Frau Althouse.

Kevin said...

I am guessing Romy is a British name, because of the great lead singer of the band The xx

rehajm said...

I mean shit, Spitzer paid big money for anal with a prostitute that wasn't his wife and he got co-billing on a CNN gig.

Drago said...

A lifetime of sexual assaults and even having your lefty MSM company install a rape room lock on your door is totally cool if you play on Team Dem.

FullMoon said...

I like Matt in the bondage stuff with his very good, wonderful Trump hating friend Ellen DeGeneres.

Here is a link to the kink

I have no idea what Tik Tok is

Dave Begley said...

The Frau Althouse character - no relation to any living person - lives in Switzerland. She knows the Frankenstein family and attends the wedding of Elizabeth Lanvenza and Victor Frankenstein. Right before the wedding the Creature finds Althouse half-asleep in a barn. He leaves something on her dress. Shortly thereafter the Creature kills three. Althouse says later in the movie, "My live was in jeopardy."

Elizabeth is murdered by the Creature - on her wedding night - in the Althouse Inn.

At the end of the movie, Frau Althouse tells her story to a London PI. Her best line, "Don't pay me in politeness. How about some francs for this information?"

Her brother is named Thijs.

I wouldn't convict Matt Lauer of rape based on that woman's testimony. I sort of believe her, but she did continue on with a consensual relationship after the rape. There may have been other reasons why she felt pressured to continue the relationship, but the presumption of innocence applies--and the suspicion of guilt sticks. He's something worse than a womanizer. How many of us have ex-girlfriends who would accuse us of anally raping them? ....It's a wonder that all those dogged reporters on the Today staff didn't ferret out the info that their coworker was a possible rapist. They did a bang-up job investigating those Covington kids.

Martha said...

Roma unfortunately has no choice but to be associated with sex maniac Lauer forever because he is her father, but I have trouble understanding why Brooke Nevils has outed herself to the world in Ronan Farrow’s book as being the woman who brought down Matt Lauer by being anally penetrated by the very gross Matt Lauer.

"And what the hell kind of name is Romy?

Romy Schneider was a big movie star in Europe in the 60s and 70s, working with some big-name directors. If Lauer was a foreign-film buff in his younger days, as I was, he might have been impressed by her.

Nichevo said...

and, of course, a bit part for Frau Althouse.


Dead hooker?

rcocean said...

Expected female reaction: "Sigh. Oh, that's so cute. He's such a good Dad. Maybe, we should forget the locked door and all that rapey, rape, behavior."

Like someone up thread, I hated Matt Lauer before he was a Rapist. Most Male Anchors of Morning TV talk shows are there because women like them. Regis Philbin and Tom Browkow were OK, but usually they're the kind of guys straight-men can't stand. Like Bryant Gumble or Matt lauer, or David Hartmann.

Let me tell you why this guy is disgraced. I say this not as any sort of fan of Matt Lauer. I could give a rip about anyone on TeeVee.

Matt Lauer had to be destroyed because he didn't give Hillary the media-tongue bath he was supposed to, during the run up to the 2016 election.

The Vault Dweller said...

Hmm... I don't use Facebook or most other social media, but is it normal to have that many pictures and videos of oneself? For as long as I've had a phone capable of taking a selfie, so over a decade, I think I've taken less than a dozen pictures of myself.

The Vault Dweller said...

Matt Lauer had to be destroyed because he didn't give Hillary the media-tongue bath he was supposed to, during the run up to the 2016 election.

I'm pretty sure his James Bond Villanesque sexual assault preparation button he had under his office desk played into the mob outrage as well.

Dave Begley said...

"He leaves something on her dress."

In order to pre-empt Laslo and others whose minds might be in the gutter, the Creature leaves a locket on the Frau Althouse's dress while she is pretending to sleep in the barn. That's straight from the 1818 Shelley novel.

paminwi said...

This female didn’t have the reaction rcocean expected me to have.
I think it’s fine, he’s with his daughter but this was a calculated move to make him look normal.
I will never think he’s normal, I will always think he is scum.
I will also think that woman who had various kinds of sex with him knew exactly what she was doing.
And the fact that she continued the “relationship” after her “rape” makes me think she wanted some kind of control over him to move up at NBC. She could have threatened to report him, not knowing, of course, there had been other reports and he always had the backing of his bosses. He knew she would be toast but he had not known about Ronan Farrow would go after scummy men like him like a dog with a bone.
I think they all got what they deserved-him, her, NBC and I am still hopeful someone will bring down a Jeff Zucker in a really big way!

Freeman Hunt said...

So a TikTok is longer than a Vine but shorter than a YouTube video? There's some real market segmentation right there.

JAORE said...

Never heard of TikTok. But THAT was uncomfortable.

madAsHell said...

Is this the slow rehabilitation of Matt Lauer's reputation??

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

The Secret Locking door button is a fabrication.

Her brother is named Thijs.

"Thijs" is a Dutch name. Matt Lauer's ex-wife, and the mother of his children, is from the Netherlands. She has one Dutch and one Indonesian parent. Back in the days of colonization, Indonesia was a Dutch colony. "Thijs" is a variation on the name that in English is "Matthias." "Matthias" is a Biblical name (see Acts 1).

BJM said...

Lauer always struck me as creepy.

@Kevin...Romy is Diminutive of Rosemary (English) or Rosemarie (French-German) and was very popular in Europe between the two world wars.

Tina Trent said...

Objectively, it's less creepy than watching Brian Williams give interviews about watching his daughter have anal sex on Girls. On a big screen. At a premiere. Surrounded by his co-workers and industry executives.

Williams cracked: "It's acting. No animals were harmed."

tds said...

He's taunting us, provoking us. Just like a serial killer contacting press or police.

Or maybe his damage control PR went operational.
