Meredith Vieira's Husband Richard Cohen Discusses Life with Multiple Sclerosis

Deciding to spend more time iwth family

In 2011, Vieira said goodbye to her job as co-anchor of the Today show in order to spend some more time with her husband and travel. “How many people our age would say, 'I'm going to leave and spend a lot of time with my spouse'? You don't give up a very glamorous, stimulating, exciting job to spend time with a spouse unless you have a glamorous, stimulating, exciting spouse. They both look at each other that way,” said Priscilla Warner, Vieira’s childhood friend.
