Ann Curry Gets the Magic Mike Treatment Before Leaving the Today Show (+Video)

It seems as though everyone feels bad for Ann Curry these days as she’s soon to be replaced by Savannah Guthrie as co-host of the Today show just one year after she started.

However, not all is doom and gloom for Curry who from now on will be able to: a) sleep in, b) cover the most important news events (not only beauty tips and cooking recipes) and c) she got the treatment from the stars of the movie that has women going gaga all across America Magic Mike.   


Manganiello, the HBO True Blood actor had previously stopped at Today to show Hoda and Katie Lee a good time while promoting his latest flick, right after the ladies shared First Lady Michelle Obama and aspiring First Lady Ann Romney’s cookies (accompanied by the wine and mimosas de rigueur).


The male-stripping movie, which will open this Friday to a legion of eager female fans across the nation, is actually based in Tatum's own past as an exotic dancer and casts a string of famous actors (Matthew McCounaghey, among them), showing it is no longer taboo for American mainstream male movie stars to flaunt it (both in fiction and reality).

And now, the movie is set for a Broadway version which would be produced by Tatum himself and his screenwriting and producing partner Reid Carolin. Alex Pettyfer, the 22-year-old co-start who plays the stripper rookie trained and protected by the more experienced Tatum's character, is supportive of the idea, "I think we all should do at least the Broadway opening!" he said.
