'TODAY' BATTLE ONGOING

NBC is really trying to ditch Ann Curry, it seems; the network even has her Today show replacement picked out in the form of the Daily Rundown anchor Savannah Guthrie. Too bad they may owe Ann up to $20 million. TMZ says Ann has lawyered up because she is only one year into a three-year deal to get paid a whopping $10 million per year. If she gets canned and replaced for Guthrie, she obviously wants the full amount, but NBC allegedly wants to pay only $10 million and give her a foreign correspondent job. There's another sticking point, the site says: NBC could also give her the full $20 million, but then forbid her from working on any other network for two years. You can ask Conan O'Brien about that kind of tactic.

Zach Galifianakis is engaged

Another eligible Hollywood bachelor is off the market ladies, because Zach Galifianakis is marrying girlfriend Quinn Lundberg. Celebuzz says the wedding will be Aug. 11, thanks to somebody who saw the invitation. "The wedding invite is very Zach," the source said. "While it has the formal and standard details of who, what, when, where - including Zach's full name Zachary Knight Galifianakis and his fiancee's, Mary Quinn Lundberg - it is also very funny. Zach included a drawing of himself and his bride-to-be. He made sure he looked like a little troll, while Quinn is a stunning tall blond princess." His rep still hasn't confirmed the engagement.
