Ann Curry has had plenty of time to separate herself from the ugly ending that went down at the Today show and has since landed on her feet, but it appears there's still some bad blood brewing between her and NBC!!
Jim Bell, the network producer who allegedly played a big role in having the beleaguered reporter fired, is also serving as the executive producer of the Sochi Olympics.
Well, apparently he wanted to make sure Ann was nowhere near the winter games despite her previous experience working on the olympics!
An inside source reveals:
"There was no way Jim was going to allow Ann to do any reporting from Sochi for the Winter Olympics. He thought she would be huge distraction and a liability to NBC. It’s no secret that Jim and Ann do not get along. Ann was disappointed not to go to Sochi because she has been a staple in past Olympic coverage on NBC."
Wow! She just can't get a break, can she?
While Ann was understandably disappointed about not making it to Sochi, sources say there isn't too much bitterness between her and the network as she's still be able to find tons of work!
Although we have to admit, we can't see how she'd be anymore distracting than Bob Costas' eye infection!!
