Angelina Jolie won’t talk to NBC unless it’s with Ann Curry

By Tribute on August 22, 2012 | 7 Comments

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are getting married soon, but unfortunately NBC won’t be able to get any Brangelina coverage unless interviews are conducted by Ann Curry. Curry had recently been a scapegoat for fallen ratings on the TODAY show and was fired for it. A source told Radar Online that Jolie reached out to Curry after her termination to make it clear that either Curry conducts her interviews, or else no interviews will be given for either the TODAY show or NBC as a whole. “Angelina has tremendous respect for Ann because of the work she has done on bringing awareness to Darfur,” the source told Radar Online. “Ann has developed a professional relationship with Angelina and Brad, and they trust her implicitly because of her integrity. Their working relationship has developed into a friendship, and it meant the world to Ann that Angelina had reached out to her. Angelina made it clear to Ann that no one from the current TODAY show cast would get an interview with Angelina or Brad, and with rumors of an upcoming wedding for the couple, NBC will lose any interviews with the actors in the future if Ann isn’t allowed to do it.” ~Isabelle Khoo

    It’s good to stand up for some one when you believe in them. Hopefully this is a wakeup call for NBC.

    Way to go Angie!!! NBC really hung Ann Curry out to dry. I hope other celebrities take the same stance.

    Ann only asks softball questions that’s why Angelina wants Ann to interview her.

    That’s great. In their time of thinking about themselves and their pending nuptuals, that the Pitts would single out Ann Curry for something like this. And being a power couple with really strong beliefs I’m sure they will have extreme pull on this topic. AND they are helping a friend. That’s aces in my books.

    It’s really nice of Angie to take a stand.
    But, I wonder how she would have felt if Aniston fans boycotted her movies because she sleeps with married men. There’s also the baby hoarding, cutting, blood wearing. Hopefully someone with Credibility steps up for Ann. Merideth Vieria is being very quiet. Was Lauer stabbing her in the back too? NBC really SUCKS!

    I have never liked nor will I, angelina jolie. She is ugly and a disgrace, not to mention committing crap. But I do give her credit for stating that she will only be interviewed by Ms. Curry. I love Ann Curry and know she was shafted and treated with absolutely no respect. Ms. Curry will always be my favorite.
