After five seasons as Edie Brit on Desperate Housewives, Nicollette Sheridan no longer had a job on the popular television drama. Touchstone Television Productions had an employment contract with Sheridan for the first season of the show with the option to renew the contract each season for six additional seasons. It chose not to renew Sheridan's contract and Brit was killed in a fatal car accident during season five.
Today Show co-host Ann Curry tearfully announced that she would no longer be part of the morning program's family on Thursday. She was reportedly one year into a 3-year contract when the network decided to buy her out amid a ratings decline. The 55-year-old newswoman was replaced by 40-year-old Savannah Guthrie who most recently was the Chief Legal Analyst.
