Spotted at the soiree: “Today” anchor Matt Lauer, who joked with us: “This is your place, right?” and MSNBC’s “Way to Early” host Willie Geist who joked about Deutsch’s pad: “This place is taking longer to remodel than Yankee stadium.”

Kotb says she was “blown away by Donny’s generosity” and thanked Kathie Lee Gifford for “lending her name for the book.” The 12-year NBC vet took everybody’s advice when “they said, ‘you better hurry up and write that book before your show gets canceled.’”

“I’m extremely happy about my book,” Kotb told TVNewser, “I’m thrilled about everybody who came out on a Monday night in New York City.” Including Frank Gifford who missed the Vikings-Jets Monday Night Football game to attend.

Even Kotb’s mom made it to the party. “My mom got pictures with everybody. She got pictures with Joan Rivers; she got one with Kathie Lee and Frank, and Al Roker. I have my mom here, my high school friends, my college friends. I feel so blessed.” (Video: after the jump)
