"Ephemeral News Obsessions of the Year" "People of the Year" special airing this Thursday, Matt Lauer spoke to Nadya "Octomom" Suleman, Susan Boyle, and hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger, whose wife unexpectedly provided couples worldwide with a bit of helpful relationship advice.

"He doesn't know I'm gonna say this, but I had joked the other day that ... the hero sex really helps a 20-year-old marriage," Lorrie Sullenberger said with a laugh, according to an NBC transcript.
"Rock star sex," Chesley Sullenberger chimed in.
