HODA Kotb has shared a cryptic quote after an expert revealed the secret reason behind her on screen tensions with Savannah Guthrie.
The Today show co-anchor posted to Instagram on Monday, escritura: “Happy monday! Thx @peacefulmindpeacefullife.”
The quote she shared read: “A seed grows with no sound, but a tree falls with huge noise.
“Destruction has noise, but creation is quiet.
“This is the power of silence. Grow silently.”
It comes as a body language expert has revealed the secret reason behind Hoda and Savannah’s apparent tension on the Today show.
According to Patti Wood, who focuses on identifying extreme personalities, the television duo’s differences make for a great show, but also create a stressful environment.
“For years their personality differences have created the perfect balance on the show,” the body language expert told The US Sun.
“Todavía, stress makes people go to their personality extremes, so Savanna is showing more perfectionism, and Hoda is showing more of an ‘I want to have fun,’ carefree attitude.”
Wood has analyzed Hoda and Savannah’s on-screen relationship as insiders claim they’re feuding behind the scenes.
La semana pasada, the hosts teamed up for an uncomfortable cooking segment that Wood said revealed a lot about their dynamic.
The scene involved cookbook author Elizabeth Heiskell who walked Savannah and Hoda through a salad recipe.

“In the short segment, Savannah shows that she feels she is the grown-up, the parent, and in charge and thinks the laughing playful Hoda is not paying attention to the rules,” Wood exclusively told the Sun.
But fans noticed the segment spiraled quickly and turned awkward.
As the chef was speaking and Savannah was mixing a salad, Hoda walked over to the table and asked: “Wait – are we done?”
Savannah replied: “Yea that’s it. Moving on. We’ll just move on, we don’t have time for all that,” as she dismissively waved her hand in front of Hoda and cut off the guest from speaking.
Viewers could hear Hoda nervously laughing in the background and grabbing a bowl for a taste as a close-up of the camera showed Savannah continuing to mix the salad.
An awkward pause ensued before the guest started talking again about farmer’s market produce.
Analyzing this strange moment, Wood told the Sun: “What is noticeable in the screen grab for the video is that Hoda is in the background reaching under Savannah to taste.
“Savannah is looking directly at the Chef and speaker to the Chef while reaching out with her palm making a patting down motion in front of her to stop her, and flicking her fingers toward the check to move her along.
“We see Hoda ignore the command, but put her head down, showing she is doing something ‘Bad’ and tasting it anyway as she gives a stuttered, slightly tense, but still playful laugh.”
Wood said this may indicate that Savannah acts more like “the parent” OMS “thinks the laughing playful Hoda is not paying attention to the rules.”
“Savannah is more of a Corrector on the DISC personality assessment and wants to get things right,” [object Window].
The Today Show has not responded to The Sun’s request for comment.
This comes as Hoda has snubbed co-host Savannah during a recent live performance amid rumors that the pair are feuding off-camera.
During the first hour of the NBC show, the ladies welcomed Lizzo as the musical guest who performed on the outdoor stage as part of the Citi Summer Concert Series.
En un punto, Hoda, 57, excitedly grabbed Lizzo’s hand and guided her into the packed crowd to greet her fans.
While the children’s book author had her moment with Lizzo, viewers noticed she didn’t wait for her co-host, Sabana, to join them.
Sabana, 50, followed them down the stairs with their co-anchors, Craig Melvin and Dylan Dreyer, though Hoda seemed to hurry Lizzo along, leaving them behind.
A source close to production on the Today Show exclusively told The Sun in June that despite their sunny dispositions towards each other on TV, entre bastidores, 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.”
¿Cómo hizo esto?
“Hoda out maneuvered Savannah and got the spot,” la información privilegiada dijo.
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.”
