Ann Curry Teased By The TODAY Show Staff! Last Months Were 'Torture!'

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitik

ann curry teased on today

Ann Curry didn’t have an easy few months leading up to her TODAY Show departure.

Reporter Brian Stelter revealed in an excerpt from his upcoming book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV that Matt Lauer’s co-anchor was the butt of quite a few staffroom jokes, much to Ann’s chagrin.

A staffer revealed to Stelter:

"A lot of time in the control room was spent making fun of Ann's outfit choices or just generally messing with her."

Apparently, some of the employees even compared Ann’s bright yellow dress (above) to Big Bird in a “Who Wore It Best?” vote. YIKES!

Stelter added that a “blooper reel of Curry’s worst on-air mistakes” was even “commissioned” by the show’s executive producer, Jim Bell — though he’s denied these allegations.

Additionally, some of Ann’s personal belongings, prior to her departure, "ended up in a coat closet, as if she had already been booted off the premises.”

Stelter wrote that the former co-anchor still feels “profoundly hurt and humiliated” by the “final months” of “professional torture” and her exit from the show.

But, Ann, don’t let any of this get you down! Chin up!

No one should EVER feel antagonized in the workplace. This is just SO CRUEL. We’re glad Ann is free from these ca-ray-zay antics!

    You have class and they don't. Stop watching the show after you left. And Jim Bell should be fired.

    I, and so, so, many of my co- workers threw the Today Show off the cliff after all of the
    garbage coming out of Matt Laurer's mouth made us sssssooooo sick. He is the death of the Today show. We can no longer tolerate his attitude towards others whether they are male or female. He is so condescending towards many, many of the shows' guests.
    GET RID OF MATT LAUER!!

    Re: Giovanna V Atwood – Jim Bell wasn't fired for it, he was given a job at NBC where he only has to work every 2 years. Jim's new job? NBC Sports Olympics broadcast producer, a job previously held by Dick Ebersol. Dick retired after the London 2012 Summer Olympics, I guess that Dick wanted to get away from the craziness. Jim's next NBC call to duty? The 2014 Winter Olympics in Soichi, Russia.

    Sounds more like a frat house or bitchy sorority…and if true, how unprofessional and small minded.
