After famously leaving Today in 2012, the journalist inadvertently made headlines in November 2017 when her former co-anchor Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News for allegedly engaging in "inappropriate sexual behavior."

At the time, the 61-year-old was "still really processing" the news, as a source claimed she was not "relishing" in Lauer's misery. In case you forgot, Curry was rumored to be fired due to her lack of "chemistry" with the now-disgraced TV personality.
