RE’s Lauren Sivan Flinches: Her Yoga Too Hot?

June 29, 2013

Lauren: “I was told it was a small art film.” Is Red Eye hottie Lauren Sivan embarrassed by her sexy RE “Yoga News” past? In her latest appearance on the popular FNC late night show, the risque reporter who put the “tease” in LA’s KTTV appeared rather reluctant to embrace the frisky workout routine that made her an RE fan fave.

Two weeks ago, the “Tramp Stamp” temptress was reminded of her saucy segment during RE‘s “A Block” (about a survey that indicated that most Americans think that their personal info is being accessed without their consent). As the RE panel discussed Americans seemingly obsolescent sense of privacy, Lauren scoffed, “Women are posting the inside of their uterus on Facebook. How much more private can you get than that? And, then they’re complaining.”* Impishly,  RE co-host Greg Gutfeld riposted, “Lauren…between Twitter, Instagram, and those German films you did back in the 90’s, everybody pretty much knows everything about you. Do you care? Do you remember “Yoga News?”

Blushing, Lauren replied, “I think that’s a perfect example of what happens when Big Brother is not watching.” Interposing, fellow guest Daily Beast cultural news editor Michael Moynihan jested, “You never thought that would get out!” Racily, Lauren responded, “I was told it was a small art film. It was just for our own….” Grinning goatishly, Greg replied, “I was the independent film maker. That got you into lots of trouble!” Concurring, Lauren exclaimed, “It really did!”

Interjecting, RE‘s second banana Bill Shulz joked, “You know how they got you? Greg was wearing a beret. And, you’re like, it’s gotta be legit!” Naughtily, Lauren rejoined, “What do you want be to do with this baguette?” As the RE roared with laughter, Lauren added, “It was a deleted scene.”

Having “escaped” a satyric Greg virtually unscathed, Lauren still had to face the inimitable RE ombudsman Andy Levy at the end of the show. When her time had come in the “Postgame WRAP-UP” for the usual snark attack, Andy asked, “Lauren, you were talking about a, a “Yoga News” segment you did on this show a long time ago.”

Almost hopefully, Lauren retorted, “I know [that] you’ve erased it from your memory.”

Puckishly, Andy riposted, “No! I believe we still have that tape. Ron, can we run that?”

Unamused, Lauren pleaded, “Please! Please! Please!”

Strangely merciful, Andy answered, “Nah! I’m just kidding!”

As Lauren rolled her eyes and shook her head in relief, her bud and bete noire Bill Shulz chuckled, “You [Lauren] honestly flinched when you did that!”

Smiling wickedly, Greg intoned, “The viewers are so angry with you, Andy!”

Aptly, Andy answered, “I know. I know.”

Chiming in, Bill added, “It’s been scrubbed from the Internet, I believe.”

Happily, for Lauren’s acolytes, Bill was wrong–as is oft his wont. The “Dancing Shiva” may have flinched: But, she also flexed! Lithe and lissome Lauren lives on in videoeven if RE still won’t show it again!

Courtney: “I’m Preggers Again!”

November 22, 2011

And, “I’m not leaving Fox News….I’ll be doing more at the local FOX.” FNC entertainment reporter Courtney Friel gave her Red Eye fans an extra scoop this morning. After announcing on Facebook and on Twitter that she was gravid again, the RE guest revealed in the “Postgame Wrap-up” that she will soon be heading to the West Coast as well.*

In her FB post yesterday, she cheerfully proclaimed, “Accidentally left the oven on and I’m baking another baby!” Subsequently, she elaborated, “19+ weeks pregnant and found out today it’s a GIRL! Due April 13th.”

When she appeared on RE this morning, “TV’s Andy Levy” fill-in, comic Paul Mecurio, asked Courtney about her “exciting news.” After she repeated her FB account in part, Mecurio jested, “Is it Jamie’s?” Smiling at his cheeky jape about some unknown lad, she gamely reassured, “No, it’s my husband’s.”

Playing the journo a mite, Mecurio probed, “And, you’re leaving Fox News, I hear.” Hoping to put that rumor to bed, Courtney responded, “I’m not leaving Fox News: I am transferring out to Los Angeles. Makes more sense to be there for the entertainment industry.” When Greg Gutfeld‘s RE sidekick Bill Schulz interjected, “We’re sad to lose her,” Courtney, perhaps, more candidly commented, “I’ll be doing more at the local FOX.”

Congratulations on the new “bun in the oven,” Courtney and Carter!

Lauren Sivan Moving: Yoga Tape “Missing”

August 31, 2011

Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld: Sadly, the voice of Long Island is leaving us. This morning Gutfeld cheekily announced that New York reporter Lauren Sivan was departing New York City for “newer and, hopefully, more sober opportunities in Los Angeles.”* In his paean to the self-dubbed “Dancing Shiva” with the “tramp stamp,” Gutfeld ran a cinematic collage of Lauren’s past appearances.

As Gutfeld did, he teased, “Have you [Lauren] ever got in trouble for anything you put online work-wise? When she coyly answered, “I don’t have any online accounts,” a TV test pattern with the graphic “tape missing YOGA NEWS 11/7/2009″ appeared.* At the end of the montage of her vintage clips, a smiling Lauren declared, “Vapid and yet obscene. I think I just lost my new job. Thank you, Greg!”

Hopefully, not. However, when “TV’s Andy Levy” asked her in the “Postgame Wrap-Up” whether she wanted to tell the viewers where she was going or not, she enigmatically remarked, “I’m going to Los Angeles, a little town called Los Angeles, um, to, to, to work for FOX in a different capacity.” In response, Andy sarcastically replied, “That was good, Lauren: people know exactly where to find you.”

Given her history with FNC, perhaps, Lauren was wise to omit the details of her future FOX job. At least, Greg had cut her famously sexy “Yoga News” segment, which has been quite the hit with her red-blooded male admirers–if not the Fox News suits. At the time Lauren performed the racy workout, one Twitter follower was so enraptured that he sent Lauren links to the hi-def caps of it. In response, she replied, “Thank You! I will either get promoted or fired for this:).”: Less than three months later, she sadly bid adieu to her fans.

Good luck, Lauren: you’ll be missed. Hopefully, you’ll return to Red Eye on your next visit to the Big Apple. Until then, your RE fans still have the memories–and the vid.

Friel Snubs Sivan

May 1, 2010

But, Courtney chats up Lauren’s “date,” Rick Levanthal. In her Fox & Friends Weekend feature report, Courtney Friel covered the pre-Kentucky Derby 2010 Barnstable Brown Party. At those festivities, she ran into her former FNC colleague and Red Eye rival Lauren Sivan. (On Red Eye, Courtney was the sexy star of Ab News and Lauren was the “Dancing Shiva” of Yoga News.)

After interviewing acclaimed actress Diane Lane and several unnamed celebs, Lauren Sivan and her former fiance, FNC correspondent Rick Levanthal, approached her. When they did, Courtney exclaimed,  “It’s Fox’s Rick Levanthal.”* As Rick gave Courtney a kiss on the cheek and his rapt attention, Lauren looked on with a subdued smile. Subsequently, Courtney interviewed Rick without even acknowledging Lauren and then tossed back to the F&FW co-hosts (Alisyn Camerota, Clayton Morris, and Dave Briggs) without so much as a mention of their former co-worker.

Ouch!

Lauren Sivan Vamooses

December 28, 2009

Fox News overnight anchor Lauren Sivan has left the FNC building after a short sixteen month stint. Last night the blonde beauty announced her departure to a Twitter follower: When glennbeckgirl22 Tweeted, “I heard that you are leaving @foxnews,” Sivan responded, “‘Tis true. Tonight’s my last night:(.” Then, early this morning, to all of her Tweeps, she announced, “About to read last set of headlines 4 FoxNews. Bittersweet.” She added, “Will miss this place tons but not the overnight shift! Here’s 2 SLEEP in 2010!”

Perhaps, the George Washington University graduate had tired of her limited role at FNC. Only last month (November 19), when another follower Tweeted, “I want you have have [sic] own hour on Fox,” she replied, “my own HOUR? I’d settle for anything over the current 1minute.” Regardless, the sexy siren, who made her indelible mark on Red Eye as the self-dubbed “Dancing Shiva” during the Yoga News segment, will be missed.

Good luck to you and Spanx, Lauren!

Sivan & Spanx

December 12, 2009

FNC’s overnight anchor Lauren Sivan got a trifle of face time on Fox & Friends Weekend this morning. Unfortunately, for Lauren and her fans, she played second fiddle to her rescue dog, Spanx, in a segment entitled, “A Canine Christmas.” While F&FW co-hosts Alisyn Camerota, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris, interviewed Harrison Forbes (radio host of talk show Pet Talk and author of Dog Talk) about potential pup presents, Lauren & Spanx stood by as animate props. (Another lady and her dog did as well.)

When the segment began, Aly introduced Forbes and greeted the dames and their dogs. However, oddly, Aly did not acknowledge Lauren as a colleague: “oddly” since Lauren is mainly seen in the evenings and at night as update reader and somewhat frequent Red Eye guest. (Of course, her male admirers know her also as the Yoga NewsDancing Shiva” on Red Eye.)

However, as the confab concluded, Dave reached over, petted Lauren’s pooch, and declared, “Thanks for coming, Spanx. We appreciate it.” As the camera zoomed in on the adorable white dog with the brown eye patch, Lauren’s visage was lopped from the shot. In fact, even when Lauren revealed that she was getting him the Zoombak GPS dog collar, the cam stayed doggedly fixed on Spanx until the show went to commercial.

FNC’s “one-minute” princess is bound to get more air time sometime soon. Until then, assuredly, the proud “mom” does not mind giving full attention to her Spanx (incidentally, named for the undergarment line, a “girl’s best friend”).

Aly Shines on AN: Keep Her on F&FW

September 25, 2009

“If you’re all alone, pick up the phone….Who you gonna call?” With Megyn Kelly, America’s Newroom co-host, gone and Bill Hemmer all alone, FNC’s SVP, Bill Shine, did indeed pick up the phone. And who did he call? Nope, not Ghostbusters–but Alisyn Camerota.

Shine’s morning go-to gal is definitely Alisyn Camerota. Whether she is captaining Fox & Friends Weekend, “filling in” on Fox & Friends weekday, or co-hosting an FNC morning show, Shine knows that Aly will come through for him. However, Shine should realize that the F&F franchise is the one most ready made for Aly.

Former FNC Executive VP of News Editorial John Moody stated, “[Fox & Friends is] an entertainment show that does some news.” Whereas he was waxing overly hyperbolic, F&F needs someone to both entertain and enlighten. Aly fits that bill superbly.

Ergo, if Shine needs Aly in a pinch, then, by all means, he should use her. However, he should not take her indefinitely from the morning show where she is at her very best. With his team depth, he should turn his eyes to potential starters like Juliet Huddy, Patti Ann Browne, or Ainsley Earhardt. Or, he could give lesser known talents like Domenica Davis, Lauren Sivan, or Dari Alexander a chance.

Hopefully, Aly’s appearance is apparitional and another’s will be aspirational.
