Ann Curry and Matt Lauer Have Tense Reunion on Air! Plus Ann Says NBC Hated Her Style
That was Ann Curry’s dilemma this morning as she reunited with her former Today Show co-host Matt Lauer on the air… on the same show that fired her just back in June. NBC chose to retain Ann after her ouster and has been using her for other news segments including their Olympics coverage.
As expected, their segment was awkward with Ann, 55, definitely giving Matt, 54, the cold shoulder.
For example when Matt greeted her with an “Ann, nice to see you,” she simply stayed quiet and nodded. She also failed to response when Matt greeted her with a “Good to see you” following her segment. Yikes. And so it appears this feud between Matt and Ann won’t be ending anytime soon.
Meanwhile, it appears Ann is sticking it to NBC (still her current employer) in a new interview with the Ladies Home Journal.
In her interview with the mag, done just before her June 28 departure from Today, Ann reveals that the network hated her style and wardrobe, you know, on top of hating her personality and reporting style!
“One day I wore a multicolored dress and someone asked if I was trying to be Toucan Sam. But I chose it because I thought, This will perk up America,” said Ann to LHJ. “I’m encouraged by my bosses to wear these ridiculously high-heeled shoes because women say, ‘I love your shoes!’ So if it makes women happy, I’ll wear them. But I’m still going to be me. . . .I’ve tried to wear clogs and flats on TV and it hasn’t gone well with my bosses.”
