Matt Lauer seems to be having a bit of a pity party for himself after news of his alleged sexual misconduct broke last week. As for Lauer's wife, Annette Roque , she was also ringless in pictures published byThe Daily Mail on Wednesday.

The report includes details of an email the woman sent to the former Tennessee politician, asking him to cease contact because of the harassment. She asked him not to contact her anymore, citing his inappropriate conduct the evening where he forcibly grabbed and harassed her. Ford's ouster for alleged "misconduct" with an unidentified woman was announced Thursday via an email from the NY brokerage, where Ford, a near victor in the 2006 U.S. Senate contest in Tennessee, has worked in recent years. "And I apologize for whatever I may have said or what was said". One woman heard from Ford's accuser the night of the incident and described her as "distraught, shocked, and frightened", and said that she was concerned about any career ramifications should she report the incident. He identified the alleged victim as a news reporter and further expounded on the allegations. His father, Harold Ford Sr., held a congressional seat for 12 terms before retiring.

Ford, 47, is part of the prominent Ford Family of Memphis politics and was widely considered a rising star in Democratic politics with national political aspirations.

Ford joined Morgan Stanley as a Managing Director in 2011.

Ford made an unsuccessful bid for a Senate seat in 2006 but was defeated by Republican Sen.
