ICYMI: Ann Curry to Brian Williams: ‘Preppin’ Ain’t Easy!’

Last week, the illustrious and snarky broadcaster Brian Williams was not at the desk for his post on NBC Nightly News. Filling in for him at 30 Rock was highly touted, sorely missed, dusky-hued Ann Curry. (S’up!)

Once of ‘TODAY’ and a fabled overnight NBC News shift she held forever, Ann has been on a journalistic sabbatical. She calls her shot, takes her crew, tapes a story, and she’s good for a couple of weeks — or so it seems. And then from the ether, she tweets a “You go girl” thought to her cohort and social media went ballistic. In a so very good way.

MEMO to Brian Williams: Work on your eyebrows brother or you’re a goner.
