THE TODAY Show co-host Savannah Guthrie has made a big show out of her “love” for her co-worker, Hoda Kotb.
This comes after news of an alleged feud between the women.
Hoda returned to the show on Monday after some extended time off to celebrate her birthday.
Savannah made sure to take note of her return and post her co-host on her Instagram story.
In a picture from yesterday’s show, the women, along with Sheinelle Jones are all sitting at the anchor desk.
Sheinelle is the one talking, so Savannah and Hoda are looking over at her.
All three are smiling and Sheinelle almost looks like she’s crying.
Savannah posted the photo to her stories and drew a big yellow heart around it, which encapsulated all three of them.
Hoda got a new seat on Monday’s show, placing herself in the middle and right next to her alleged on-screen-only buddy.
The women have reportedly been in a feud for a while, but don’t purposely show it on air.

A source close to production on the Today Show exclusively told The US Sun back in June that despite their sunny dispositions towards each other on-screen, behind the scenes Savannah and Hoda secretly “can’t stand each other.”
“Savannah is the boss. After Matt Lauer was ousted, Savannah grabbed power, and she really wanted Willy Geist in Hoda’s role, but his ratings were just not up to par for the network.”
“Hoda out maneuvered Savannah and got the spot.”
Beyond that, the source added that Savannah “thinks of herself as a real news person,” while Hoda is seen as “the lightweight that drank wine with Kathy Lee Gifford.”
“Savannah was the White House correspondent before getting the host job, which also explains her love for Jenna [Bush Hager] since her father was president.”
Jenna’s father is George W. Bush.
While Jenna is Hoda’s co-host, the insider said she plays both sides between the women.
“Jenna and Savannah are the best of friends, and they ice Hoda out.
“Jenna landed the best job on TV with zero experience- no one works people better than her.
“She’s a master at playing the game,” the insider added.
They all appear to play friends on camera, however.
Staff members exclusively told The US Sun they prefer Hoda over Savannah and gushed over their favorite Today news anchor.
The source added that Hoda is everyone’s “absolute favorite” and said she is “so warm and friendly” to all of the staff behind cameras.
Hoda also takes the time out of her day to talk to the staff and hold small Q&A’s for the summer intern staff.
She is also a “great mentor off-camera” and even knows everyone’s names.
As the Today staff source gushed over Hoda, they failed to mention anything about Savannah.
Despite Hoda being out last week to celebrate her birthday, Savannah made sure to post about her co-worker and shut down any feud rumors.
The TODAY Show host posted four photos of the co-anchors together.
The first one was a framed photo of the two of them, smiling and hugging in a warm embrace.
The second was them hugging on the set of the show with huge smiles on their faces.
The third and fourth photos showed the women smiling and laughing, acting as though nothing is wrong.
In the last photo, the co-workers were even holding hands as they beamed for the camera.
“She is our sunshine. Happy birthday, @hodakotb!!!,” the 50-year-old captioned the post.
Hoda and Savannah have not publicly commented on the feud.
But fans have accused Savannah of “being fake” when it comes to showing love to her co-anchor.
