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.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE THESE ACCUSATIONS ABOUT ANN CURRY?
Just a year after taking over Meredith Vieira‘s vacated position as the co-host of The Today Show, a new report is confirming NBC is planning to fire Ann Curry.
This news is not exactly a surprise as there had been rumblings in the past couple of months that Matt Lauer did not like Ann and wanted her fired. Add in the fact that the Today Show ratings had taken a bit of a dip this year, and this seems like an easy decision for NBC.
The NY Daily News is reporting that NBC has been having secret meetings in hopes of finding a different role at the morning show for Ann, who took over the co-hosting gig following Meredith’s departure last June.
Unfortunately for Ann, the ratings took a bit of a dive this year and the network believes Ann, 55, who has been with “Today” since 1997, formerly serving as a news anchor, is partially to blame.
Even worse for Ann, sources close to her reveal she doesn’t want to leave the show. “She got her dream job, and she doesn’t want to let it go,” a source close to her told the Times.
Ann has however accepted her fate, and began discussions with network officials weeks ago. She also hired lawyer Robert Barnett to represent her in negotiations.
As for her replacement, Savannah Guthrie, who co-hosts the third hour at “Today,” is said to be the front-runner as well as Meredith! NBC is refusing to comment on this report.
