Disgraced Today Show host Matt Lauer was seen out in the Hampton's with his daughter Romy for her 18th birthday Saturday, just a day after excerpts from the memoir of Lauer's longtime co-host Katie Couric revealed she had heard 'whispers' about his inappropriate conduct with women at NBC. 

Lauer was seen out with Romy, a friend, and Lauer's longtime friend-turned-girlfriend Shamin Abas. 

The group went to Italian restaurant Tutto Ill Giorno, and afterward had ice cream at Yummylicious in Sag Harbor. 

There was no sign of Romy's mother, Annette Roque, who divorced from Lauer in 2017 after the sexual allegations against him became public and he was fired from the Today Show.

In her tell-all Going There, Couric  admits she 'heard the whispers' about her longtime colleague.

Additionally, the women who were left 'damaged' by Lauer's actions spoke with Couric as she was writing her book, she revealed, although the former anchor didn't name them. 

'I suspect they'll be dealing with this for the rest of their lives,' Couric writes, according to The New York Post.

In one story involving Lauer, it is said that he would deal with women behind closed doors in his office, which was equipped with a desk button to lock the door.

Couric writes that one unnamed producer was told by Lauer to come to the now-infamous office wearing a 'skirt that came off easily'.

She also claims that Lauer complained to her that he felt uncomfortable putting his arm around a female colleague to comfort her when she cried, over fears he could subsequently face an allegation of inappropriate behavior.

Even before these allegations were made, Couric said her former co-anchor Lauer told her he thought that feminist movements such as The Me Too were becoming too powerful. 

'This MeToo stuff feels like it's getting kind of out of control,' Lauer reportedly told Couric. 'It feels like a witch hunt.'

She added that Lauer was 'worried about a lack of due process, people's livelihoods and reputations being destroyed.'

Couric told Lauer to stop putting his arm around the women as it was making them uncomfortable, she writes.

She said that she tried to 'imagine such a scene taking place' and told Lauer that 'he cannot do that - you cannot put your arm around them,' The Post reported.

The group's night out came a day after it was revealed that former Today Show host Katie Couric admits that she 'heard the whispers' abut Matt Lauer's inappropriate office behavior in her new book

Couric also writes in the book, out Oct. 26, that she also heard 'rumors' that her co-star's wife Annette Lauer had called the control room one morning looking for her husband and demanding the phone number of a TV anchor he had been linked with.

They divorced after news of Lauer's misconduct exploded.
