George Stephanopoulos’ wife joked anchor thought Matt Lauer’s secret lock button was ‘good idea’

Ali Wentworth said she knew when she wedded George Stephanopoulos she could trust him.

“I was so blown away when I fulfilled him…because he has so much integrity, ” Wentworth told People. “I went through a bad boy stage before him, and I knew this was a man who wasn’t going to cheat on me, wasn’t going to hit me, or embezzle our fund. I’d never be Ruth Madoff.”

After a string of Tv hosts and anchors have been accused of sexual assault and harassment, Stephanopoulos, who co-hosts “Good Morning America, ” has jokingly been referred to as the “last man standing” in morning TV.

Wentworth said she trusts her husband of 17 years so much that if anyone accused him of sex misconduct or infidelity she would “start hysterically laughing.”

“And so would everyone else, because he’s just known as a stand-up dude, ” she gushed.

The “Go Ask Ali” author also disclosed what she and Stephanopoulos supposed after learning about Matt Lauer’s firing and the alleged button he had on his desk to lock its term of office door.

“[ Stephanopoulos] thought it would be great because he could keep everyone out of his style and only do his work, ” she said.

In addition to Lauer, CB’S Charlie Rose was given the boot after several females accused of him sexual harassment.

She told Stephanopoulos didn’t have a strong reaction when he was first called the “last man standing” on morning TV.

“George simply pointed at me and shrugged, ” Wentworth said of when they first heard the “last man standing” nickname. “I was like,’ What does that mean? ’ Either it entails’ Yeah well, I’m on a tight leash with this ball-buster, ’ or it entails,’ Well why would I cheat, I’m married to this wonderful girl! ‘”

The 53 -year-old added, “I’m going to pretend it was the latter.”
