Ann Curry: NBC Hated Ann Curry’s Bright Outfits!

Thursday, August 9, 2012

ANN Curry admits NBC bosses hated her fancy frocks and footwear when she was co-hosting the TODAY show.

The TV star opened up in the August issue of Ladies’ Home Journal.

“One day I wore a multicolored dress and someone asked if I was trying to be Toucan Sam. But I chose it because I thought, This will perk up America,” Curry — who is still employed by NBC — told the magazine.

“I’m encouraged by my bosses to wear these ridiculously high-heeled shoes because women say, ‘I love your shoes!’ So if it makes women happy, I’ll wear them. But I’m still going to be me. . . .I’ve tried to wear clogs and flats on TV and it hasn’t gone well with my bosses.

“I’ve decided not to buy into the idea that I want to stop aging.

“I’ve got gray hair because I won’t dye it. . . .But I don’t want to change the fundamental parts of me because it means changing who I am.”
