Fives years after being let go from the Today show, Ann Curry is breaking her silence.
Media outlets speculated her June 28, 2012 dismissal to her poor relationship with her former co-anchor Matt Lauer, and the pair's lack of "chemistry."
However, this past November, Lauer's contract with NBC was terminated for his alleged acts of sexual misconduct. While some would expect Curry to be exuberant over the news, she instead spoke to PEOPLE about her empathy towards the victims.
“I’m not a vengeful person. I know what it’s like to be humiliated. I just don’t want to play a part in anyone else’s humiliation,” Curry said.
“I wish I could say that I was celebrating,” she added. “But actually I immediately checked myself. Because I knew women had suffered.”
Now, Curry is ready to speak out on how she felt all those years ago.
