The disgraced moderator Matt Lauer tells his supporters that he will be back on TV.
Sources said page 6 that Lauer – who was released by NBC on charges of sexual harassment in November – was recently seen by an old man In his "Donohue & # 39; s Steak House," he told fans that his return imminent.
"A group of elderly ladies came to Lauer and said, 'We miss you!'," A source told us.
The source said Lauer told the fans, "I was busy being a dad, but do not worry, I'm back on TV."
Reports say Lauer hopes for a comeback.
He also apparently has some supporters on the radio: Page Six reported in June that Lauer was seen at a lunch with a former "Today" senior producer.
He is increasingly being spotted in public on Hampton's social scene, though many residents have called his gaze throughout and over "incognito."
In recent weeks, Lauer's appeared in the sceney East Hampton Spot Serafina, at a Paddle for Pink charity event in Sag Harbor and at the Hampton Classic on Sunday – where his daughter Romy Lauer is known.
Lauer's alienated ex Annette Roque was also at the riding show, and they interacted, although Lauer was with another woman, from sources saying she's just a friend.
A spy said, "He was with a mysterious woman all the time, by his side, dark hair, late 40's to early 50's. They talked and she never left his side."
But the source described their interaction as nothing but friendly.
The woman was also seen happy talking to Roque.
Our source said of Lauer, "He walked very cautiously, wore a baseball cap and was not sitting in VIP … He was sitting in tribal seats in the stands."
A representative declined to comment who the woman was be lurking, but said that "any suggestion that he's meeting someone is categorically wrong."
Lauer was a regular guest for years at Donohue's Upper East Side Institution, near the Manhattan apartment , which he had unloaded earlier this year for $ 7 million, we reported exclusively.
