Originally posted 11/07/2013 11:50AM

A private moment played out quite publicly for Matt Lauer and Al Roker on Wednesday, as they got prostate exams live on NBC's Today show to help spread the word about the importance of regular checkups.

"It doesn't hurt at all," said Lauer, 55, of the rectal procedure, which took place behind a closed door at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York as cameras waited outside.

"Is it the best 34 seconds of your life? Probably not. But if in 34 seconds a [doctor] can detect something that might save your life, what are we talking about?"

Paula Deen Cancels Interview with Today's Matt Lauer

Originally posted 06/21/2013 09:10AM

Days after it was revealed that she admitted to using the N-word in the past, Paula Deen canceled at the last minute a live TV interview with Today's Matt Lauer.

The southern cook, 66, had been scheduled to appear on Friday's broadcast to discuss her admission under oath in a deposition for a discrimination lawsuit that she has used racial epithets.

But, according to Lauer, Deen's rep contacted the show moments before she was set to appear live and told producers that she is "exhausted" after flying into New York overnight and would not be showing up at the studio.

"We had planned to have an exclusive live interview with Paula Deen this morning," Lauer announced on-air Friday. "We spoke several times with her people yesterday and then I spoke with Paula yesterday afternoon. We arranged an interview this morning. We agreed there would be no restrictions to that interview only that it would be an open and candid exchange."

If you don't have all the savory sides, you can still slow-cook a batch of Roker's delicious dish. Just be sure to give yourself some time!
