I’ve kept quiet on the “firing” of Ann Curry…although can you call it firing when you’re still getting paid something like $14 million dollars…and you’re still not sure for what?
I admit I was never a fan…although I did meet her once and she was very nice, but I never thought she was right for the Today job next to Matt Lauer…I never got a warm, fuzzy or bubbly feeling from her.
Ladies Home Journal has an interview with her in the August issue and she said part of the reason she was fired is because she refused to dye her hair and producers hated her clothing choices. She said the bosses were always on her for her on-camera look:
--"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.’”
--She said she wore “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...
Although I did like this. “I've decided not to buy into the idea that I want to stop aging. My wrinkles connect me to my family, to my ancestors and to my future… I've got cellulite because it runs in my family. I've got gray hair because I won't dye it. ... But I don't want to change the fundamental parts of me because it means changing who I am".
All I can say is Ann Curry move on!!!! That’s what we do in life…
