Natalie, however, denied the rumor about her and also mentioned that she was having a great relationship with her husband.

Natalie stated,

''There is absolutely no truth to this completely absurd story. It is damaging, hurtful and extremely sexist. I have proven myself in all aspects of my job as a news professional and journalist, and am adding to my role, taking on three jobs with 'Access Hollywood Live' and 'Access Hollywood,' in addition to 'Today.' This move was dictated by me and my desire to grow in my career. Any insinuations beyond that are uninformed.''

Whereas, Matt stated,

''Every aspect of this story is untrue, and it’s frankly sad that someone would tell lies to harm everyone involved.''
