REVENGE is a dish best served spicy as ANN CURRY may be sharpening her knife in an explosive tell-all that blows the lid off the Today Show scandals!
Ann may have lost her hosting gig on the “Today” show, but she could be looking at the biggest payday of her career if she’s willing to dish the dirt on her former co-hosts!
Insiders say she could reel in a whopping $8 million advance – or more! – if she agrees to write a salacious tell-all exposing the intimate secrets of serial cheater Matt Lauer and man-stealer Savannah Guthrie.
The 55-year-old broadcaster, who joined NBC as a correspondent in 1997, was unceremoniously dumped by the show in June because of falling ratings. She only co-anchored the Emmy-winning news show with Matt Lauer for a year before being replaced by the younger, peppier Savannah, who’s 40.
“The NBC brass pulled the rug out from under Ann and made her the fall guy for the show’s bad ratings,” a source said. “Now publishers are desperate for her to spill everything.”
Ann “has seen it all and heard it all” when it comes to 54-year-old Matt and his affairs with other women. The dad of three has been married to Annette Roque since 1998.
“Ann knew Matt cheated on his wife during the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010 and also while he was working the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Torino, Italy,” said another insider.
Meanwhile, Savannah was “the other woman” in a love triangle with a married BBC-TV producer a few years ago.
One person who likely won’t be trashed in the tell-all is longtime “Today” weatherman Al Roker, who’s “as loyal as the day is long to Ann,” said the insider. In fact, during the recent Olympics, Al ignited a behind-the-scenes war by comparing the rowing team post-race tradition of throwing a teammate in the water to Ann’s firing, quipping that it is “different from OUR tradition…which is to throw one of us under the bus. But that’s another story.”
Added the insider: “Al is sickened by how callously she was treated. Now Ann has the power to take down ‘Today’ – and that has to be satisfying.”
