BUZZ: Former CNN honcho Jeff Zucker and married anchor Alisyn Camerota ‘just old friends’ despite holding hands, source claims

Former CNN boss Jeff Zucker and anchor Alisyn Camerota are “just old friends” — despite raising eyebrows by holding hands.

The pair looked quite comfortable together as they were seen leaving a brunch hosted by Don Lemon in the Hamptons on Saturday, per photos obtained by the Daily Mail.

Camerota — who is married with three kids — was seen smiling as she walked hand-in-hand with Zucker, who stepped down from his role at the media company last year after failing to disclose his romance with then-colleague Allison Gollust.

Interestingly, Gollust, 50, was also in attendance at Lemon’s event, but she exited the party alone.

While it’s unclear why Zucker, 58, and Camerota, 57, were holding hands, a source exclusively tells Page Six that the two are “just old friends.”

Additionally, the insider insists that the disgraced chief is still in a relationship with Gollust.

“Allison and Jeff have never been happier,” the source says. “He and Camerota were going to meet Allison for coffee.”

Representatives for Zucker, Gollust and Camerota did not immediately respond to the Post’s requests for comment.

Zucker and Gollust, CNN’s former executive vice president and chief marketing officer, both resigned from the network in February 2022 after their relationship was discovered during an internal probe into ex-anchor Chris Cuomo, who was fired in December 2021.

They have since divorced their respective spouses.

As Page Six previously reported, Zucker and Gollust recently vacationed together in Italy for the Fourth of July.

And last week, an eyewitness spotted the pair dining at Kissaki restaurant in the Hamptons with a group of 10 that included Lemon, 57, and his fiancé, Tim Malone.

“They were laughing, and having a great time,” the insider said at the time.

Meanwhile, Camerota — who currently hosts “CNN Tonight” — has been married to her husband, Tim Lewis, since 2002.

The two-time Emmy winner previously anchored the network’s “New Day” show.
