Most American were shocked when Today Show host Ann Curry was gently fired from the show back in July. We were left trying to figure out what Ann had done to deserve being kicked off the air. Well, it seems as if her clothes and shoes may have played a role, according to an interview with Curry in the August issue of Ladies’ Home Journal.
Ann claimed in the interview,
“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. 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.”
Curry also addressed the issue of women who go grey saying she has no intention of ever dying her hair.
“I’ve decided not to buy into the idea that I want to stop aging. My wrinkles connect me to my family, to my ancestors and to my future. This is how my father looked when he was my age. I’ve got cellulite because it runs in my family. I’ve got gray hair because I won’t dye it.”
It is an interesting proposition that NBC may have disliked Ann’s choices of dress and foot covering, but there are very few websites which are buying into that theory.
