Ann Curry is NOT happy with the ongoing drama with the Today show, and we can’t say we blame her!
Yesterday, Brian Stelter revealed a couple of nasty tidbits from his upcoming book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV and says the former anchor was bullied and mistreated in her finals days at the office!
Well a source is saying Ann feels "vindicated," but is fed up with the drama:

Have you guys been watching the Today show lately? Because it has actually been pretty
It might have something to do with Hoda Kotb, who is temporarily filling in for Savannah Guthrie and has somehow done the impossible and made Matt Lauer likable-ish!
So naturally we have to ask, is she the answer to all of the Today show's problems?
According to an insider at the show, Hoda is ADORED by the crew and her chemistry with the controversial anchor reminds them of the golden days when Katie Couric was still around:

Southwest has decided to allow cameras onto their planes following recent publicity flub-ups.
The airline has been caught on record doing very stupid regulating during their flights.
Some of the fails include kicking director Kevin Smith off for being overweight and kicking off Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong for sagging.
As reported earlier, L Word star Leisha Hailey was also kicked off for kissing her girlfriend, being told Southwest is a "family airling."
The new reality show will air on TLC and show planes from Baltimore and Denver.
The airline hopes the show will promote passenger and employee love towards Southwest.
But the damage has already been done.
