20. Rita Ora vs. Rob Kardashian: Rita Whora’s Revenge

Rob Kardashian didn’t handle his heartbreak all that great following his split with Rita Ora. Instead of posting passive aggressive Facebook statuses like the rest of us, he went on an all-out Twitter assault against his former flame, claiming that she cheated on him with 20 dudes, and coining the obvious pun, “Rita Whora,” which became a trending topic soon after. #Revenge? #SmallVictories

Stitches required: Just 1 for Rob’s broken heart.

Ann Curry Leaves Today: 10 Style Moments That Make Us Miss Her Already

Ann Curry

Ann Curry finally made it official. In a tearful announcement this morning, she told Today viewers that it would be her last morning as co-host of the show. After a year of co-hosting the show, she’ll be taking on a role as “TODAY Anchor at Large and National and International Correspondent.” Many have speculated that she was to blame for the morning show losing its #1 spot in the ratings for the first time in 16 years. She doesn’t think so and told USA Today that she wishes she had more time to work out the “kinks.”.

Whether or not you’re relieved someone else (maybe Savannah Guthrie) will be joining Matt Lauer on the couch every morning, you can’t deny one thing that will be sorely missed when Curry goes off to be “at large” or whatever it is she’s doing: Her colorful, daring style. She told USA Today that her fashion statements were part of her commitment to viewers, “I’ve tried very hard to be what they need — even in the crazy-colored highlighter-toned dresses I wear that you could probably see from outer space. I’ve worn them because I know every one of us needs a little brightness in the morning.”

Here is a look back at some of the brightness (and a few bits of black and white) that Curry has brought to the show for the past year:

Ann Curry’s Today Replacement Is Savannah Guthrie: Report


Ann Curry’s out and Savannah Guthrie is in on the Today show — well, as soon as NBC’s lawyers can get Curry’s contract figured out, according to TMZ and several other sources.

Ann is only in her first year of a three-year contract as co-host, under which she’s supposed to make $10 million a year. She reportedly wants the remaining $20 million, but NBC wants to give her a foreign correspondent position instead. The other option is that NBC would give Curry the money, but under the condition that she doesn’t take a new job for the next two years.

But onto what’s more important, getting to know Savannah Guthrie! The beautiful, 40-year-old former lawyer graduated Magna Cum Laude from Georgetown Law Center, and she’s a member of the bar in Washington and Arizona. She got her TV start as a legal analyst in Arizona, Missouri and Washington before graduating to Court TV and then, in 2007, to NBC, where she’s currently co-hosting the third hour of the show. Decent resume, right?

Oops: Ann Curry Tells Robert Pattinson He Has A “Beautiful Girlfriend”

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Much to the delight of “Robsten” believers worldwide, as Today host Ann Curry congratulated Robert Pattinson on his many successes, she included snagging his “beautiful girlfriend.” While it’s pretty obvious at this point that he and Kristen Stewart are in a serious relationship (Bear and all!), we can’t help but get giddy when the subject is openly discussed. One mystery remains…did Ann Curry just naively bring up Kristen without knowing they were still playing the “secret lovers” game, or was it a strategic slip to make Rob (adorably) blush?
