This is why I like Ann Curry.
Shortly before she was replaced by Savannah Guthrie on Today,
Ann Curry admitted that NBC wasn't very happy with her. In an interview
with Ladies Home Journal, Curry complained that the network
constantly criticized her style.
Curry said that execs thought her personal wardrobe was frumpy and
wanted her to wear "ridiculously high heels." When she opted for comfortable footwear like clogs and flats, Curry said it didn't "go over very well
with my bosses."
Ann's hair color was also a problem. She said, "I've got gray hair
because I won't dye it: I want to be about to honor my family by looking
exactly as they did as they got older . . . I think showing some grey is
authentic . . . true beauty is a face you have lived in. Of course I want
to look my best: I eat right, exercise and use skin cream. I try to wear
nice clothes. But I don't want to change the fundamental parts of me,
because it means changing who I am."
