Ann Curry would like to remind Matt Lauer his ass is toast…
Looks like Ann Curry is in no rush to let bygones be bygones as she and Matt Lauer failed miserably when she took to once again sitting alongside her former co anchor partner in London today.
Taking her chair next to Matt to introduce her story on Adam Petty, Getty‘s chief photographer, Ms Curry showed no interest in engaging her co anchor who tried on a number of occasions to entice her with small banter. Each time she remained ashen faced as she strove to get through her piece.
When Matt chimed ‘Ann, nice to see you,’ the best the former co anchor could do was to stay still and essentially ignore Lauer. Not discouraged the king of perfect teacup manners attempted once again at some sort of rapport (he must have certainly been conscious that pundits were closely watching their engagement) when he chirped, ‘thanks Ann, good to see you.’ Matt Lauer’s comments to be sure were met with a deafening silence.
It is rumored that Matt Lauerplayed a large role in Ann Curry’s recent ouster from the Today show as co anchor.
It might also be worth noting that Ann Curry’s participation in London was much later than anticipated and something that she had grumbled about in recent days prior to studio heads relenting and sending her over. Then again with today’s first face off between Matt and Ann since her ouster perhaps one can see why NBC producers may have dragged their feet….
