David Gregory’s Wife Calls in to Dispute His “Today Show” Story

Viewers of the Today Show this morning got a small peek into the marriage of one of Washington’s best-known power couples. Following a story examining whether women talk more than men, David Gregory, the host of NBC’s Meet the Press, got a surprise phone call from his wife and super litigator, Beth Wilkinson.

Wilkinson, a partner at Paul Weiss, phoned in to bust Gregory and dispel the story’s conclusion that women are the chattier gender. She thanked Gregory’s co-hosts for “keeping our house quiet this week,” since Gregory is in New York filling in for Matt Lauer on Today. Gregory admitted that Wilkinson “often tells me to stop talking about myself.”

Though Gregory may be the more talkative one, Wilkinson’s no wallflower. And surely when it comes to arguing or negotiating, she lays down some serious verbal prowess. As one of the nation’s best regarded trial lawyers, she’s been involved in such high-profile cases as the prosecution of the Oklahoma City bombers. She was also the head lawyer at Fannie Mae while the mortgage giant battled for its life in the midst of the 2007-2008 financial meltdown.
