The host of a show that catches the indiscretions of questionable men on tape, has himself been caught on tape mid-sex scandal.Ironic. And costly.
According to Page Six, “To Catch A Predator” host Chris Hansen was supposed to be named the lead anchor of “Dateline.” However, with news of the sex scandal, NBC executives have put a stop to the plan.
The National Enquirer claims it secretly filmed Hansen in “a romantic tryst” with Florida TV reporter Kristyn Caddell — footage supposedly shows Hansen and Caddell arriving at a Ritz-Carlton in for a “romantic dinner” and then driving back to Caddell’s home where the two stayed overnight.
Later reports claimed that Hansen also sent explicit photos of himself to Caddell.
A spokesperson for NBC News told Page Six, “This couldn’t be further from the truth. Ann Curry is the anchor of ‘Dateline,'” but refused to answer if there was a plan for that to change.
