Savannah Guthrie smiles amid claims Kelly Rowland 'walked off' set because of ... trends now

Savannah Guthrie didn't appear to be bothered by a lingering controversy involving Kelly Rowland as she attended an event in New York City Wednesday flanked by her Today show colleagues Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush-Hager.

The Today show personality, 52, appeared to be in good spirits at a book presentation for her new book, Mostly What God Does: Reflections on Seeking and Finding His Love Everywhere at the venue Peoplehood.

The broadcast journalist was also supported at the event by her husband Michael Feldman, 55, and their children, daughter Vale, nine, and son Charley, seven.

The appearance came amid news that Kelly Rowland is said to have walked off the Today show due to 'disrespect' shown to her by Guthrie in an exchange which she 'aggressively' questioned Rowland about Beyoncé - rather than ask the singer about what she was there to promote - her new film Mea Culpa.

It had been claimed over the past week that Rowland, 43, skipped out on co-hosting the rest of the Today show alongside Kotb because she was dissatisfied with her dressing room, forcing British singer Rita Ora to step in at the last minute.

At the event, Guthrie was clad in a white pantsuit with a patterned floral top with a white handback and open-toe sandals. She wore her dark blonde locks down and parted to the proceedings.

Kotb was clad in a fluorescent lime green pantsuit with her brown tresses parted to the side. 

Bush-Hager was clad in a black jacket over a black floral dress with black boots, with her blonde locks down and parted. 

The ladies appeared in good spirits amid the swirling controversy on the NBC morning series, which was addressed on-air by Kotb herself this week.

Kotb essentially confirmed the dressing room excuse this week when she offered Rowland to share her dressing next time she comes on the show. 

However, it appears Kotb's comments stirred the pot even further, as an insider told The Wrap on Wednesday that Rowland left after she 'felt disrespected' after Guthrie asked her a series of questions about her friend and former bandmate Beyoncé.

'Kelly was offended that Savannah repeatedly and aggressively asked her about Beyoncé,' the insider told the outlet.

The source went on to say that 'Kelly was upset about Savannah's aggressive questioning about Beyoncé. She and her team were not happy and felt disrespected.'
