Well, if she's gonna turn to anyone, we totally expect it to be the "consciously uncoupling" star!
Because, DUH! Who better to understand Beyoncé's pain than the Goop author?!
Ann Curry's contract negotiation battle may be coming to a close! There's just one more thing NBC is demanding- and it's harsh!
A source at the network says the higher-ups are finally willing to set the Today correspondent free! And Matt Lauer actually helped? The source says:
"There has been a break in the on-going stand-off between NBC and Ann. Ann’s bosses weren’t willing to let her out of her contract so she could accept a job at CNN.
However, they now recognize it’s probably for the best, and Matt Lauer chimed in and said it would be a good idea as well."
Thank goodness! But we know a negotiation like this won't be without cost. So what do they want from Ann? The source says:
"NBC has made it clear that if they let Ann out of her contract, they want to keep her off the air of a competing network for at least six months."
Six months?? Yikes! What is she going to do for six months without a job?! She's ready to jump to CNN now! Will she even consider such a deal? The source says:
"This is unacceptable to Ann. She has been on the air only in a very limited capacity."
True! She's practically already been doing that! Can't she just get sentenced to time served with Matt Lauer?
