Matt Lauer’s rumored mistress used to be a dude named Wellington

Alexis Houston Addresses The Press

A few weeks ago, The National Enquirer and Radar made a huge deal about Matt Lauer allegedly splitting with his Dutch wife Annette. To jazz up the story, I included some internet rumors that Lauer was boning Meredith Vieira, although I doubted it at the time. The Enquirer ran another cover about “Matt’s Affairs” that I don’t think we even bothered covering, as it was clear that even if Lauer was or is having problems in his marriage, his wife seems to be sticking by him right now.

In any case, one of Lauer’s alleged mistresses is a lady named Alexis Houston. Page Six claims that Hollyscoop was the first to report that Lauer might have been boning Alexis, but I think it was probably the Enquirer or Radar. Anyway, the rumor existed, and this pissed off Alexis Houston. So she hired Gloria Allred and held a press conference to deny the Lauer affair. And Page Six proceeded to dig up some dirt on Alexis. Like, her name used to be Wellington Houston, and she used to have a penis.

Alexis Houston — the singer who held a press conference last week to announce she never had sex with “Today” show host Matt Lauer — had some interesting yesterdays. She used to be a man who called himself Wellington Houston.

Whitney Houston sued Wellington (whose original name was Stuart) in 1996 because he was claiming to be her cousin. Whitney alleged that Wellington used the false relationship to defraud an elderly New York doctor of $100,000 using credit cards and forged checks, the AP reported at the time.

Wellington resurfaced in 2001 with a demo CD titled “All’s Well.” The Daily Record in Glasgow, Scotland, gushed: “Whitney Houston’s pop crown is under threat — from her own cousin. Wellington Houston, 23, is being hailed as the next big thing in the US. But although Whitney sings on his demo CD, Wellington doesn’t want to cash in on his famous family. He said, ‘All I want from my family are good wishes.’”

According to one source who has known the singer for years, Wellington had sex-change surgery three years ago after a man fell in love with the cross-dressing singer and paid for the operation.

“She told me they got married in Niagara Falls,” said our source, “but they have since separated.”

Alexis’ Web site said she started singing in the choir at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark when she was 6.

The scurrilous Web site claimed May 13 that Lauer had an affair with Alexis after meeting her on the “Today” show set in 2007.

Last Friday, Alexis held a press conference outside Michael’s on West 55th Street with headline-hogging lawyer Gloria Allred. Speaking with a Madonna-like British accent, Alexis said, “I feel that my privacy and personal space has been invaded.”

Neither Alexis nor Allred would comment yesterday. Michael J. Griffith, a lawyer Alexis has known for years, also refused to comment on Alexis’ past.

Now, at this point, this really has nothing to do with Matt Lauer, other then the brief, fleeting thought of Lauer getting his rocks off on a post-op transvestite/woman who used to go by “Wellington Houston”. Which, by the way, is the best fake Whitney-Houston-cousin name ever. The issue is all about this lady’s insanity and drama, and the fact that she’s likely a grifter looking to make some quick cash off the rumors that she probably started in the first place. Why did Gloria Allred take the case?!?

The white dude with Wellington/Alexis is her boyfriend, by the way.

    Again with the Allred. I can’t stand that a woman in a position of power is demeaning herself (and the rest of us women) by exclusively representing “other women.” It’s disgusting. Get some standards, Gloria. Until then, you’re no better than your clients.

  2. YT says:


    I want to see Gloria Allred’s complete client list — with notations.

  3. Blaster says:

    ::blank stare::

    Whelp……Allred may be proverbially spitting on her profession and being a famewhore by “defending” all these women but at least she keeps us entertained………..?

  4. onyx says:

    That’s great. I think I just spewed coffee all over the office wall, laughing so hard upon reading the headline. Thank you Kaiser!

  5. ,,,, says:

    All I could think upon reading the title of this story was Matt Lauer ordering the “beef wellington.”

    My mind is in the gutter today…

  6. popcorny says:

    Guilty or not, no man is safe.
    (*sinks head into hands*)

  7. Tess says:

    So…Wellington had his business surgically removed while Lauer triumphed beyond mere sexuality at the Elite Main Stream Media School of Sensitivity and Political Correctness.

    Very little difference.

    Holy Shiz, I laughed out loud after reading that line! The writing on Celebitchy is getting better by the day! I used to read your website as a gossip website “after dinner drink” to Perez. But I have to tell you that Perez has become my after dinner drink and Celebitchy is now my go to site. You are scooping Perez on stories and I find his write-up mindless dribble in comparison. Team Celebitchy!

  9. Gigohead says:

    I have to say, she does look good for a woman who was once a dude!

  10. Meimei says:


    My thoughts exactly. Without the headline, she would’ve been just another XX involved in a sex scandal.

  11. Jazz says:

    The boyfriend looks like he’s run into the business end of someone’s fist.

    And I loathes that ambulance chasing vulture Allred.

  12. kia says:

    Uh, no. I knew that was a man the second I saw it’s picture. I mean, seriously! More power to it for living how it chooses and all, but I was SO not fooled.

  13. Miranda Ann says:

    This man has been going around for years saying he is related to Whitney. I wondered what happen to him and now I know. He is now a woman!! Interesting.

  14. jen says:

    This just made the Lauer affair story more believable. LOL!

  15. TaylorB says:

    God that headline damn near did me in.

    And Gigohead, I couldn’t agree more that is one pretty gal.

  16. Feebee says:

    LOL. Saw the headline, thought “oh funny if it’s true”. Saw Gloria Allred… ah ha ha ha ha, it’s obviously true.

    Why do these women hire Gloria Allred, don’t they realise it sinks their stock immediately?

  17. denise says:

    Wellington……. how dignified.

  18. Tru says:

    I knew it was a man all along, smdh!!

    why Matt Why??

    seems like its always some kind of scam going on when a tranny/surgically created female is involved.

    Allred, is desperate.

  19. gg says:

    Hey – ain’t that the same tranny that was all over Gaga on that boat a few days ago?

    Also, and I am only saying this because I see more and more people misusing this phrase – @ Lee, with all respect, it’s mindless DRIVEL, not “mindless dribble”.

  20. Vibius says:

    Wow… completely missed the “used to be” before I opened this up.

  21. Leek says:

    Well, I wouldn’t eff her with her own dick.

  22. melbe says:

    She still looks like a he.

  23. NayNay says:

    Gloria Allred should be ashamed of herself. She obviously has no standards, whatsoever.

  24. Gloria Allred is the “Attorney of the Whores”…

  25. Lady Nightshade says:

    wait…why was the press conference held in front of Michael’s? The arts and crafts store?

  26. snowball says:

    Well, if the affair rumors are true, we’ll know soon enough now that that sow Allred’s involved.

    lol, “Beef Wellington.”

    Lady Nightshade, maybe that’s where that wig came from?

  27. WTF?!? says:

    She would be a post-op transexual, transvestites just like to play dress-up, often aren’t even gay.

  28. Sumodo1 says:

    When I was a single, young reporter, my friends told me about a man-whore named, you guessed it, ML.

  29. westcoaster says:

    Another site is saying that ML was the one who paid for her sex change operation. Except Wellington/Alexis said they were “married” but have since separated. Interesting how Page Six could get the info about the sex change but nothing about the husband? Wouldn’t it be easy to find a record of a marriage taking place?

  30. mai tai says:

    ‘She’ still looks like a dude to me!

  31. really says:

    I thought it was one of the tennis william sisters, venus or serena…

    it sure does look like a dude!!!

    wow matt, really.

  32. Todd says:

    Did someone find Beef Wellington under her skirt?

  33. jules says:

    when is he/she going to do a nude pictorial?

  34. Slymm27 says:

    These sick cheating men. And puhlease, that woman looks like a dude..

  35. lady miss E says:

    Hey, the “white dude” is a friend of mine, and that’s NOT her boyfriend. He’s an actor.
