The Controversial Life Of Lara Throughout Her Career

Lara had some ups and downs in her career. In 2017, she gained attention for posting pictures on Instagram highlighting her athletic past in high school diving. 

She faced controversy for sitting next to Donald Trump during an interview in 2015 and appearing to mock Prince George’s interest in the Bullet on Good Morning America in 2019.

Before the Prince George incident, Lara's work schedule at ABC was reduced, leading to guessing about favoritism towards other hosts. 

Despite these challenges, Lara apologized for her passions and encouraged others to pursue what they love. 

Despite the controversies, Lara continues to move forward in her career. Lara occasionally argues with her producers and doesn’t get along with co-host Amy Robach.

The tension reportedly sharted when Amy took over as news anchor, and Lara wasn’t happy. 

There were also allegations of Lara flirting with male staff and guests. 

The situation got worse when Amy underwent a double mastectomy for breast cancer, and she claimed Lara didn’t offer support. 

Despite these controversies, Lara has found success in writing and hosting the HGTV show Flea Market Flip, which she’s passionate about. 

However, the show has faced criticism for not being entirely genuine, with contestants revealing off camera. 

Lara has also dealt with body shamers criticizing her appearance and scammers taking advantage of her name to promote fake skincare brands.

Lara Went Through Hip Replacement Surgery 

Lara went through some personal struggles, especially in her relationships. 

She had a hip replacement surgery before turning 50. Even though she has always been active in sports, needing this surgery was surprising. 

She was worried about how to talk to her children about it because there’s sometimes a stigma around this kind of surgery. 

Lara had a positive change in her love life. She married Rick McVey in 2018, and they seem happy together. 

Before Rick, she was married to David Haffenreffer, but they ended their relationship in a friendly way in 2015. Lara faced difficulties in her 15-year marriage with David. 

Money differences with Lara earning more and managing the household, plus reports of her flirting and disagreements with David’s parents led to their divorce. 

But despite these problems, Lara moved on and is now happily married to Rick McVey.
