Fast forward to today and Ann’s neighbors are now painting a different picture of the former TODAY anchor, painting her as a “mean-spirited” and “uncaring” person. Yikes!
So why the harsh criticism? Well it all stems from Ann’s decade-long renovations on her Manhattan brownstone.
Ann’s neighbors — John Lee and his wife Lynne Lummel, who live next door to the TV journalist, tell the National Enquirer that Ann and her husband Brian Ross have made their lives “a living hell for ten long years.”
See Ann, 56, and hubby Brian purchased their $2.9 million Upper West Side home back in November 2003. The house has however remained uninhabited since the purchase, and even worse, the couple has continued to disrupt the lives of their neighbors with 10 years of non stop renovations.
John says the worst part about the situation is that Ann has not been apologetic: “She hasn’t shown my wife and me a shred of compassion or understanding for the disruption their decade-long home renovation caused our neighbors and us,” adding, “our quality of life was destroyed. She’s an uncaring , mean-spirited person who cannot bring herself to apologize for her mistakes.”
Unfortunately for the couple, things took a turn for the worse when they claim that back in December 2010, a water pipe burst in Ann’s home and flooded their basement.
The incident reportedly caused thousands of dollars in damage, even causing John to get an electric shock from a plugged-in heater. “It was an extremely dangerous environment, and I could have been killed,” stated John.
His wife Lynne added: “We finally reached a settlement with Ann and her husband six months later. I get very emotional when I think of her and what she put us through.”
Ann has yet to respond to her neighbor’s accusations.
