She’s famous; she’s got a good body; and it’s a great cause. After Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade’s first sports segment Friday, he pruriently promised, “And, by the way, I do have a heartwarming fund-raising naked story…coming up later.”* About an hour later, Brian delivered with a headlines story about tennis legend Andre Agassi’s unorthodox fund-raising method on behalf of typhoon victims in Taiwan.
Around mid-show, Brian wrapped up the headline news reports, stating, “Tennis great Andre Agassi has got a new way to raise money for charity: auction off a chance to see pictures of his wife tennis great Steffi Graf naked.”** Subsequently, as a clip aired of Agassi inducing reluctant bidders to pay a handsome price for a charity item by offering to show them his spouse nude in a phone photo,” Brian joyously exclaimed, “And, he did!”
Incredulously, co-host Steve Doocy, shouted, “What!” and guest co-host Aly Camerota intoned, “Ooh!” In response, Brian explained, “But, it’s for a great cause.” Then, after he elaborated that the charity event was for typhoon victims, Brian asked, “Now, could you really get mad at him? If you’re Steffi Graf, are you mad at Andre?”
Animatedly, Aly answered, “Of course, you’re angry with him!” Brian responded, “These people are, are in trouble. They need clothes and shelter. The least you could do is take yours off.” After guffawing, an amused Aly remarked, “That is grossly inappropriate.” Undeterred, Brian readily riposted, “She’s famous; she’s got a good body; and it’s a great cause. It a good combination!”
Bemusedly, Aly shrieked, “What!” Coming to her aid, Steve declared, “Had you [Brian] been there, it sounds like you would’ve paid.” Brian answered, “I think my wife would be in to it for a great cause.” Unpersuaded, Steve replied, “I don’t think so!” Grinning mischievously, Brian queried, “You don’t think so?” Smiling somewhat, Steve answered, “Absolutely not!
Amused at her F&F co-host, the “brown-haired guy who isn’t Steve Doocy,” Aly advised, “I think you should ask her first her before you offer it up.” Beaming, Brian answered, “Right, I think I just did. I think I just did. We’ll find out if she has cable.” Laughing in response and looking into the camera, Aly declared, “Dawn [Brian's wife], write into my Twitter account, please.”
Just another day of F&F fun with Aly and the boys.
