PAULEY DIDN'T READ `THE' MEMO

Jane Pauley of the Today show says she's never read that famous memo from Bryant Gumbel that ripped into weatherman Willard Scott and reviewer Gene Shalit. And rumors of a second Gumbel memo trashing her are false, she told US magazine. "I have specifically, consciously, deliberately not sought it out," she said of the purloined memo. And "I assure you, if there was another memo you'd have a copy of it. Everything that was in Bryant's file was found by snoopy eyes and sticky fingers," she said. She insists that she gets along with Gumbel just fine. "I think one of the reasons Bryant likes me is that I give him grief sometimes, and not all that many people give Bryant grief."
