Ann Curry: "I Don't Always Understand My Worth"
The 55-year-old Today anchor, who is reportedly being replaced by NBC, covers the August 2012 issue of Ladies' Home Journal. She told the magazine, "I don't always understand my worth. I think it's a chronic condition for women. I'm not talking about professionally. I'm talking about in our personal lives. We constantly punish ourselves with degrading thoughts when we look at ourselves in the mirror. We allow people to treat us poorly, we allow our husbands or boyfriends to get away with things or we have relationships with girlfriends or colleagues who don't treat us well. We don't defend ourselves as we would our own children." As for Today's recent loss in the ratings war to Good Morning America, she said, "It's hard not to take it personally."
