Curry told Elle:
I still don’t really understand. I know I did nothing wrong. I know I was good at my job.
The bottom line is that it still hurts. It honestly hurts really deeply, because I really think I did nothing wrong. But in spite of the pain of it, which still lingers, I know that I contributed to some people suffering less.
But I tell you, it was tough. It was hard to walk that line, to not add more [suffering]. Boy, oh boy, was it tough.
A few years after Curry's departure, former co-anchor Matt Lauer left after being accused of rape, sexual misconduct, and harassment. Curry defended the young NBC employee whom Lauer reportedly assaulted, and she's become a confidante for others.
There has been more than one [woman] who’s come to me now [about Lauer]. I hope they’ve come to me because they know that I’ll be empathetic and compassionate. I’m a right-and-a-wrong girl.
And I’m happy to be their friend. This is a deep level of suffering, from what I’ve learned. They’re dealing with trauma that threatens to be lifelong.
