Al Roker’s Wife Reveals The True Extent Of His Illness

Recently, his wife, Deborah Roberts revealed the real extent of his illness. She revealed that the medical team surgically removed his gallbladder, conducted surgery on his colon, and also operated on a small part of his intestine.
On Monday, the weather reporter was witty and sly with his commentary on the latest segment in Today’s 3rd Hour. For the segment, Al Roker was joined by his co-hosts, Craig Melvin, Sheinelle Jones, and Shop All Day contributor Chassie Pos who highlighted some gift ideas for the special day.

However, a unique gift that caught the Today hosts’ attention was the customized pet portrait option. As the hosts reached the final gifting item on the list, Craig pointed out his unique find in the list which was a green and yellow exotic bird’s framed portrait.
He said, “I was surprised when I walked in, and I saw the Melvin family bird.”
Al Roker Shades Craig Melvin With An Unexpected Joke
Chassie talked about the portrait’s beautiful frame and showcased similar dog portraits. However, Al wasn’t really done gushing over Melvin’s favorite bird portrait.
The weatherman even quipped about it, subtly shading Craig, and said, “I’ve always wanted to give you the bird.” This obviously referred to giving him the middle finger. The entire group laughed at Roker’s unexpected joke directed at his co-host. Craig soon fired back and revealed, “And sometimes you do.”
They soon moved on from the on-air jibe and focused on other Valentine’s Day gifting options.
