Today American Morning co-host Kiran Chetry seemed to have had an overnight conversion. Yesterday, she coyly “dismissed the power of her ‘pumpkins‘” after a Jeanne Moos’ report entitled “Busting ‘Boobquake’ Theory” (about a Purdue student and her friends’ attempt to debunk an Iranian cleric’s theory that immodest women cause earthquakes by wearing their bosom-baring tops). To her co-anchor John Roberts, she riantly remarked, “Just stick with me, John, [and] you’ll be in no danger of running into an earthquake.” However, this morning Kiran appeared to recant her earlier view and to embrace both her distaff potency and the cleric’s “wisdom.”
Ironically, Kiran chose to wear today the very dress that had led John not only to peek at her pumpkins but also to eye her stems as well last autumn (September 9, 2009). However, she apparently tried to tamp down any tremors that John or her AM admirers would experience due to her distaff potency. Whereas then she proudly donned her short, sleeveless black dress with a plunging neckline for John and the AM viewer to enjoy, today she took a much more prim approach. I.e., she cloaked herself with a white top underneath that black dress to cover her decolletage fully and she studiously kept her bare legs underneath the AM desk for the entirety of the show. (John was conscripted to do floor duty alone.) To boot, Kiran adorned herself with no jewelry at all except the engagement and wedding rings that her husband had bestowed upon her to make her his wife.
Girl power under wraps today!
