Today‘s Matt Lauer and Al Roker revealed a bit of their initially turbulent history in a candid segment of Thursday’s morning show.

Lauer, 59, and Roker, 62, revealed they didn’t always get along, and opened up about the moment they first met on live air.

“We had a rough start,” cohost Lauer said, gesturing toward weather anchor Roker.

“We did,” Roker said, smiling.

“We had a rough start and it’s amazing we are dear friends now,” Lauer continued. “Long story short, we’re on the air one time on local television years ago. Al said something to me that I did not appreciate, live on television.”

“He booted my name and I said, ‘Wow, not so easy in the big leagues, is it, pretty boy?'” Roker added.

Others around the table shared their first impressions of the other, including Ice Cube, who said Hoda Kotb was “a fine mamma.”

“I think the segment’s over!” Kotb said, laughing.

Savannah Guthrie shared her first impression of Lauer, saying she thought he was “cute.”

Julissa Arce, a former undocumented immigrant who used false papers to become a Goldman Sachs executive while living in the U.S., was prepared to stand her ground when she was invited on Fox News to speak with Tucker Carlson.

Carlson, a conservative political commentator who has been known for being confrontational, started the conversation about California universities instituting an 18% cap on out-of-state residents but having no cap for illegal aliens.”It does seem to me that no matter how conflicted you feel about immigration, you would never be in favor of a state school capping admittance of American citizens, but in effect giving preference to illegal aliens. Why would any sane person be in favor of that?” Carlson asked Arce.

The author of My (Underground) American Dream clarified to Carlson that, in her belief, the “new rule” isn’t about immigrants but about the out-of-state residents. She also spoke about AB 540, which states that undocumented immigrants become residents of California if they have lived in the state for over three years.

During the segment, Carlson notably gets frustrated with Arce’s explanations and accuses her of using a “rhetorical trick” to avoid his question.

Arce defended her argument by telling the commentator that he has a “lack of understanding” about the issue. Carlson then tells Arce she does not understand his claim that illegal immigrants now take precedence over U.S. citizens. The two continue the heated debate until the Fox News host cuts Arce off with a burst of laughter. He mockingly invites her back on the show, “I’m sure you’ll tell us everybody wins” referring to affirmative action.

PEOPLE reached out to Arce’s rep for comment.

Charlie Sheen is once again being sued by a woman who claims the actor lied about being HIV-positive and exposed her to the virus during unprotected sex.

Sheen is not officially named as the defendant in the lawsuit, but the plaintiff alleges the defendant gave a nationally-televised interview on November 17, 2015 to announce he was HIV-positive — which is the exact day Sheen made his announcement in an interview on the Today show.

The lawsuit also claims the defendant gave a second interview on June 21, 2016 — which is the date Sheen sat down with Matt Lauer for a second interview.

According to the lawsuit, Sheen and the woman (who identifies herself only as Jane Doe) met in September 2015. Doe claims that prior to any sexual activity between them, she asked Sheen directly if he had any sexually transmitted diseases. Sheen said he was “fine,” Doe claims, and that she “needed to trust him.”

Doe claims she and Sheen had protected intercourse over the next two months until October 26, 2015, when the two engaged in unprotected sex. Doe claims that immediately after their unprotected sex, Sheen stepped out of the room to smoke. When he returned, Doe claims, he “threw a bag of pills on the bed” and told her that he was, in fact, HIV-positive.

The woman claims Sheen admitted to lying previously. Doe claims Sheen instructed her to take the pills in the bag and that she would be fine. She says that Sheen told her to take two of the pills immediately and then the remaining pills later in the day.

Doe maintains she never would have had unprotected sex with Sheen had she known he was HIV-positive.

Doe sought out her own medical advice and confronted Sheen a few days later. She claims that Sheen blamed her for her exposure and said that he was “noble” for having told her about his HIV status at all.

Furthermore, she claims Sheen “berated” her for not asking how he was doing. She says that when she asked Sheen why he lied about his status, he replied that it was “none of f—ing business.”

Doe claims Sheen went on to explain that he was facing lawsuits from other women with whom he had engaged in unprotected sex. She says that Sheen began making several bizarre statements, including that he could “see the future” and that she was fine.

Sheen went on to say that “when you come down with this , that we’re together and at least we have each other,” the suit alleges.

The lawsuit does not explicitly say whether or not the woman contracted HIV.

Doe is suing for battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, negligent infliction of emotional distress and fraud. She is seeking unspecified damages.

Sheen was sued in December 2015 by his former fiancee, Scottine Ross, who similarly claimed that Sheen lied about his HIV status during their relationship.

Sheen’s lawyers could not be reached for comment.
