Savannah Guthrie Is Married and Pregnant

Originally posted 03/17/2014 07:35AM

We interrupt this cocktail hour with breaking news.

The mariachi band serenading Savannah Guthrie and Michael Feldman down the aisle after their "I do's" was not the only surprise in store for guests at the couple's hush-hush weekend wedding.

Just as family and friends – an intimate gathering of 80 to 90 people – were sitting down to dinner, NBC anchor Guthrie, 42, and Feldman, 45, said a few thank-yous and reminded guests to keep the nuptials secret until Guthrie could announce it herself on air on Today Monday morning.

That's when the DJ hit "play" on a recording of the NBC News "Special Report" music, an insider at Saturday's sunset celebration outside Guthrie's hometown of Tucson, Ariz., tells PEOPLE.

Many parents at the Winter Olympics have gone out of their way to support their kids' dreams, but few have gone as far as Brett West.

Gabrielle Giffords Marks Third Anniversary of Her Shooting by Skydiving

Gabrielle Giffords Marks Third Anniversary of Her Shooting by Skydiving

Originally posted 01/09/2014 11:00AM

Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords narrowly escaped death three years ago, and she marked the anniversary in fearless fashion Wednesday: by skydiving.

The Arizona politician's life changed forever on Jan. 8, 2011, when a disturbed local man opened fire during a ceremony outside a Tucson grocery store. Six people died and 13 were wounded, including Giffords, who suffered life-threatening and ultimately life-altering injuries after being shot in the head.

Yet Giffords, 43, intended to send a clear message on Wednesday when she jumped out of a plane in her home state with a Navy SEAL and a parachute strapped to her back – and a big smile on her face. "I'm alive," she told Today's Savannah Guthrie, who covered her bold leap.

Fancasting a Morning News Rivalry: The Today Show vs. Good Morning America

Originally posted 01/02/2014 07:00AM

Morning news is about to become more dramatic than you ever imagined – and you'll get to watch it all unfold in a new made-for-TV movie.

Lifetime is adapting former New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter’s book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, into a television movie.

The book chronicles the fierce rivalry between two flagship morning news programs: ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today. The story focuses on the intrigue surrounding the 2012 ouster of former Today anchor Ann Curry, who left the show when the NBC stalwart began to lose the ratings race to GMA.

With development underway, we can't help but imagine who will play Matt Lauer – let alone Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Champion or Al Roker. Check out our humble suggestions, starting with the Today show team:

Peter O'Toole: The Ultimate Talk Show Guest

Originally posted 12/16/2013 04:00PM

No star ever seemed quite as delighted to play himself as Peter O'Toole. The actor, who died Sunday at the age of 81, earned innumerable accolades for his stage and screen work, but just as important in cementing the image of Peter O'Toole in the public consciousness were his decades of talk-show appearances, nearly all of them performed through a smirk, a twinkle, and just as often, a large amount of vodka.

After partially tearing her ACL in a training accident on Nov. 19, downhill racing champ Lindsey Vonn told Today that she is guardedly optimistic she'll be ready to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics, which begins in just 72 days.
