Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

"Angelina reached out to Ann Curry after she was fired from her gig on the TODAY show and was very clear, if ANY news program from NBC wants an interview with her, or Brad, Ann will be the only one to do it," the source told RadarOnline.

The reason for the loyalty? Jolie is reportedly grateful for...

Shining Star: Ann Curry- Talk about a woman who oozes class. After weeks of frenzied speculation and "inside reports" that the "Today" host was to be ousted and replaced, Curry finally acknowledged the rumors head on and announced her departure from the show.

“For all of you who saw me as a groundbreaker, I’m sorry I couldn’t carry the ball over the finish line, but, man, I did try,” Curry said.

In a day where ratings seem to count more than content in TV News, there was no pomp and circumstance for Curry. No big musical number send-off, as was done for previous co-anchors. For a woman w...

Ann Curry gave a tearful goodbye this morning on her last episode of Today, putting an end to 15 years of appearing on the show.

"This is now how I expected to leave this couch after 15 years, but I am so grateful," said Curry during a five minute segment focused on her departure. "I'm sorry I couldn't carry the ball over the finish line."

Ann tried to hold back tears and kee...

Regis Philbin
Rumors are swirling that former co-hosts Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford may reunite for a special appearance on NBC's "Today" in order to distract viewers from certain other issues with the morning show.

The idea is to reportedly deflect attention from Ann Curry's certain departure. Since Curry took over from Meredith Vieira ratings have dropped, and many have complained about her lack of chemistry with co-host Matt Lauer.

Curry is expected to take home at least $10 million per a contract she signed last year. Reportedly, Curry is holding out for $20 million as she's only one year i...

Matt Lauer & Ann Curry Dress Up As Prince William & Kate Middleton

October 31st, 2011 12:30pm EDT
The Today Show
Ann Curry makes a somewhat convincing Kate Middleton (if you look at her from a distance), but we think Matt Lauer makes a poor Prince William. What do you think?

"The Today Show" co-hosts dressed up as the royal couple for their annual Halloween bash this morning.

The real William and Kate recently raised $1 million for the Child Bereavement Charity, which helps alleviate the suffering of children who have lost family members. It's likely a cause close to William's heart since he lost his mother Princess Diana when he was just 15 years old.

George Clooney
George Clooney was in for an unexpected culture shock during his recent trek through South Sudan - when a local woman "blessed" the Hollywood actor by spitting on his head and hands.

Activist Clooney traveled to the region with newswoman Ann Curry earlier this month to raise awareness about a brewing conflict in the region, which will split the African nation in two. The Southern Sudanese will vote for independence in January and that's likely to split Africa's largest country and prompt a north-south war - something Clooney and United Nations officials are eager to avoid.
