While introducing her first on-air interview on the Today show, Kelly told co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer how happy she was to be part of the team — and she completely ignored Kotb who was sitting at the table with Guthrie and Lauer!

Kotb threw her hands up in mock disbelief when Kelly neglected to address her. And this is after Kotb gave Kelly a warm welcome to the show last month.

Kotb came back early from maternity leave to make sure her job was safe after she knew Kelly would be joining the show. Kelly's complete dismissal of her on-air definitely didn't ease the tension.
