Tamron Hall has announced that she is leaving NBC and MSNBC, but it may not be as amicable as it seems. HipHollywood has learned that Hall was not happy about the network hiring Megan Kelly and axing her hour-long show Today’s Takes with Al Roker.

According to a source, Hall was so furious she turned down a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to stay at the Today show.

Apparently, the relationship soured when NBC announced that it would be canceling her top-rated morning show  to make room for Kelly. Sources say Hall found out she was being ousted minutes before she went on air last Friday, and she was in tears. “She was devastated to get the news. It was almost an Ann Curry moment live again on TV. It was surreal,” another insider told Page Six.

Her last day on both networks was Tuesday. Her contract with NBC News expires this month. “The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful,” Hall said in a statement. “I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.”

NBC also released a statement praising Hall and her contributions to the network. “Tamron is an exceptional journalist, we valued and enjoyed her work at Today and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay,” NBC News said in a statement. “We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”

Hall will continue to host Deadline: Crime on Investigation Discovery … and we have a feeling something major is on the horizon for her over at OWN.

If it does, remember we told you first!

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
