Today Gets a Shake-up

Things are changing at Today. NBC announced this morning that Today anchor Meredith Vieira is stepping down. An emotional Vieira made it official, saying it was a “difficult day” but after “months of personal reflection” and conversations with her family and friends, she had decided to step down. NBC News President Steve Capus said of Vieira, “While we will miss waking up with her each morning, we are working together on developing her next chapter at NBC News.” Filling her shoes will be longtime Today news anchor Ann Curry. Vieira’s final Today broadcast will be June 8. [Huffington Post]

Not everyone has Bieber fever. CSI actress Marg Helgenberger says Bieber was a “brat” when he guest starred on the hit television show recently. In an interview with French radio show Le Grand Direct des Medias, the sexy redhead said, “I probably shouldn't say this, but he was kind of a brat. He locked one of the producers in a closet. And he put his fist through a cake that was on the craft services table.” Yeah, that’s not cool. Bieber responded to the criticism by calling Helgenbeger “lame” and saying he will continue to be the man his “mamma raised.” [New York Daily News]
