Being the seasoned wrangler of many eccentric Real Housewives casts, Cohen wasn't about to let Lauer walk away from the set unscathed, so he decided to stir the pot.
"I think it's no diss to Katie Couric that he really loves Meredith, like he really loves her," he egged on.
"The difference is Meredith and I have a kiss on the lips relationship," he shared. However, don't be confused—they're not exactly making out in the 30 Rock plaza.
"Meredith is one of those warm people every time she sees you, she kisses you on the lips," he elaborated. "Katie and I have a trading barbs relationship—always jokes one after the other."
Jokes and kisses—what more could a guy ask for?
