Matt Lauer Fed Up With Bernie Madoff
Although Today co-anchor Matt Lauer did not lose money in the Bernie Madoff swindle, Lauer still feels touched by the affair.

The two men live at the same ritzy Park Avenue apartment and, as the National Enquirer reports, Lauer is sick of the media attention that Madoff has brought to the once-peaceful neighborhood.

"The upscale building had been a very peaceful place, but with Bernie living there it's turned into an absolute circus. Throngs of media people and onlookers stand outside to try to see him coming or going," said one eyewitness. "Matt is very upset over it."

"I saw Matt wigging out when he arrived home and tried to get in the front entrance past hordes of photographers. He was yelling, 'Go home, there's no show here. Leave us alone!'"

The 51 year-old Lauer lives with his wife, Annette Roque, and their three children in a $5 million co-op apartment, while Madoff resides in a $7 million penthouse in the same building.

The noise outside Lauer's front door has reportedly made it hard for him to relax during his weekends.

"All this unwanted attention, with media from around the world camped outside Matt's door at various times of the day and night, is driving him bonkers," continued the eyewitness. "He hates the clogged sidewalk out front and he's fearful for his kids."

Ha, a pissed off Matt Lauer. Well at least something good has come out of the Madoff ponzi.

7. Another irritating celebrity, Zsa Zsa Gabor, lost money with Madoff
Her husband:

"We're mad as hell and we want our money back!" said Prince Frederic. "We might be forced to sell our Bel-Air home, cars, artwork and even our jewelry because of this sick man."



It is really hard to feel sympathy with people such as Matt and Zsa Zsa who are long overdue for a Karmic payback.

6. "Stupid Media," comments Lauer, "Why can't the press mind their own business?"
Where in the world is this man's sense of irony?
