This is the gal, it is much rumored, that Matt Lauer forced out.

Just for background.

She told this to CBS, which also had its own sexual harassment problems.

CURRY: ... I'm trying not to hurt people. And I know what it's like to be publicly humiliated. I never did anything wrong to be publicly humiliated.
