Is the journalist still feuding with Hoda Kotb?

For quite some time, there have been a lot of rumors surrounding the cast of Today. Word on the street is that Savannah Guthrie and her co-anchor Hoda Kotb actually can’t stand each other. So far, neither woman has publically commented on the drama. But fans can’t help but pick up on the snide comments and frostiness on set. For the time being, it seems like they’re both choosing silence as a better option.

However, some viewers believe that Savannah is out at Today for good. Did Hoda actually push her out?

According to Savannah, she’s just been spending more time with her family and children. And now, she’s covering the Queen’s funeral arrangements in England. It may be quite some time before things go back to normal on the set of Today, but it doesn’t appear that Savannah Guthrie is going away anytime soon — even if she is indeed feuding with Hoda Kotb.

For now, it seems like everyone is content to put aside their differences to honor the late Queen Elizabeth II. Even the sky filled with rainbows just moments after her death.
