Couric was a guest on Watch What Happens Live in 2012, and during a game of "Plead the Fifth," Andy Cohen asked her about Lauer's most annoying habit.
"He pinches me on the a** a lot," she revealed, to which Cohen replied, 'Wow! I wouldn't have a problem with that."
Couric served as Lauer's Today show co-host from 1997 to 2006. Ann Curry, who shared the table with Lauer in 2011, told People on Wednesday that she was "still processing" the news of Lauer's firing, while a source told ET that his current co-host, Savannah Guthrie, "took the news the hardest."
