Megyn: AE’s Secret, Shep’s Gaffe & Cine Cameo?

September 7, 2013

Memorable musings: Ainsley Earhardt hawks bikini babe; Shepard Smith shuns Fox News viewing; and Megyn Kelly cameos in Assange movie! Things the author should have probably said–yesterday.

On August 11, Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Ainsley divulged perhaps the “secret formula” for the storied success of FNC. After two too cute segments, F&FW meteorologist Rick Reichmuth remarked, “I think [that] we need to make a split screen of that baby and the panda bears: Yeah, and then just watch that all day long.” Concurring, anchor Tucker Carlson concurred, “That’s ratings gold.” Smiling racily, Ainsley added, “Put a girl in a bikini in the third slot, and there you go: Babies, pets, and girls!…This is what we learned in journalism school.”*

Five days later, as a Studio B segment concluded, host Shep unapologetically revealed, “I’m not much of a TV guy….There’s the Yankees, the Rebels, and the True Blood: That’s it! Nothing else!” Perhaps, after a word in his ear from producers, Shep hastily added, “Ah, and Megyn! I watch Megyn: She’s on vacation so I don’t have to watch her right now.”**

Yesterday, during his Fox & Friends review of the Toronto International Film Festival flicks, NerdTears.com film critic Kevin McCarthy disclosed that “Megyn Kelly makes an appearance” in The Fifth Estate, an Assange cine, which opens to the public on October 18. Elaborating, he said, “They have some news footage of her talking about the Wikileaks story….She’s in the movie a little bit from Fox News.”***

Trio’s musings import? Megyn Maxim, er, GQ goddess!

Kelly’s Kmart Caper: Busted 4 Shoplifting!

November 2, 2011

Megyn: “Sorry, Kmart: But, thanks for not throwing me in the slammer!” For Halloween, America Live co-host Megyn Kelly pulled a Lindsay Lohan. I.e., she just had to have that special necklace–whether she paid for it or not.

During a shoplifting story today on AL, FNC reporter Trace Gallagher reported on a young couple who had their two-year-old daughter taken from them (after, apparently, forgetting to pay for two sandwiches eaten as they shopped).* When he had concluded his story, a smiling Megyn asked him if he had ever sampled candy that he had not declared at checkout. When he admitted, “Yeah, all the time but I have kids…[and] they pick stuff up and they eat [it]. So, you grab the wrappers and you try to throw them on the counter and sometimes…they don’t always make it on the counter,” With a jaundiced eye, Megyn chuckled, Do you? Do you? Or, do you just slide ‘em in your pocket and say, ‘I’m sorry. They’re like five cents.’”

With a gleam in her eye, Megyn remarked, “I [have] to tell you: when I was twelve-years-old, I, I shoplifted. I got caught shoplifting–at a Kmart!” Feigning outrage, Trace animatedly answered, “What!” Smiling, Megyn explained, “It was really my then best friend who made me do it.” Unconvinced, a grinning Trace retorted, “Sure!”

Elaborating, Megyn revealed, “We completely got busted by her mother who said, ‘Where, where did you get those huge star earrings and those huge star plastic necklaces–because it was Halloween?’ And, my friend said, ‘Megyn’s mother bought them for us,’ and she said, ‘Alright, I’m going to call Mrs. Kelly, and you two girls better go down to the basement and pray to God that Mrs. Kelly says [that] she had not one but two pairs of huge star plastic earrings and huge star plastic necklaces.’ So we did: we went down in the basement and prayed to God that she would lie for us–which, of course, she did not.”

Continuing her account, Megyn remarked, “So, she came back down into the basement, my friend’s mother, and we said, ‘What’d she say?’ And…she said, ‘Your father will be over to take you back to Kmart so you can confess after he finishes his meatloaf. And we did!”

Animatedly, she exclaimed, “We had to go down to the Kmart and confess out crime to the manager of the Kmart. And he told us that we could have been arrested: It was terrifying! And, I tell you what, [I] never stole another thing again. That was my life of crime!”

When a beaming Trace replied, “Your dad was well justified in doing that: he’s a good dad,” Megyn responded, “I’m reformed now….Unlike Lindsay Lohan, I did my penance–and I learned. That’s it!” As a chuckling Megyn buried her head in her hands, Trace riposted, “You did. Criminal!”

Laughing, Megyn concluded, “See you, Trace! That’s it: now, I want be able to run for President or become a Supreme Court Justice because I confessed…my crime on national television. Sorry, Kmart: But, thanks for not throwing me in the slammer!”

Fear not, Megyn! You can still rule your country: if you follow Lindsay’s latest lead, you could still go from “mere” Maxim model (or, rather GQ pinup) to an American Playboy princess. Doubtlessly, your AL acolytes will not be disappointed.

Halloween Treat: Aly’s Thong and Sext?

October 22, 2011

Clayton wants to know. Sexy Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota “discovered” how to rouse her lucky hubby anew this morning. During a “cheater-meter” segment today, relationship expert Dr. Karen Rushkin (author of Dr. Karen’s Marriage Manual), told Aly and her co-anchors Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris that traveling spouses were in a particular danger to stray: in response, Aly exclaimed, “My husband does that all the time. He travels all the time in his work.” Suggestively, she added, “As the dutiful wife, what am I supposed to do?”

In reply, Dr. Karen instructed, “Send a little sexy text.” No prude, Aly enthusiastically exclaimed, “That’s a good idea!” Interposing himself, Clayton unconvincingly pleaded, “Don’t send me that by mistake.”

Grinning puckishly, Dave interjected that Aly might want to ditch her usual sweats. When Aly turned to the doctor for her advice, Dr. Karen asked, “Are they big sweats? Is there a thong under those sweats?” Animatedly accepting her amorous hint, Aly enthused, “That’s a good idea!”

Subsequently, as the segment concluded with Aly and her co-hosts off camera, a naughty Clayton could be heard saying, “I want to find the answer to that question.” Apparently, Aly’s hubby is not the only one interested in Aly’s saucy texts and sexy lingerie. If Clayton and Aly’s other F&FW fans are lucky, maybe, she’ll share.

Probably not. But, Aly did ask her F&FW viewers for suggestions on what she should dress up for this Halloween. Perhaps, the Bristol Bay babe could be persuaded to dress up  as one of your FNC colleagues, Courtney Friel or Kimberly Guilfoyle, in their fun and frisky days: Remember, Courtney was a former Maxim bikini model and Kimberly was a Victoria’s Secret lingerie model!

Shannon Bream: Megyn Kelly Looks AMAZING!

August 4, 2011

Former Maxim model Courtney Friel: “She looks awesome.” Last week, Deadline Hollywood reported that Megyn Kelly will return to America Live next Monday exactly four months after taking maternity leave on April 8. Yesterday, the FNC foxes began to herald the return of their alpha vixen: Megyn’s America Live fill-in Shannon Bream trumpeted, “Just saw @MegynKelly and she looks AMAZING! She’s back Monday!!” Today, FNC entertainment correspondent Courtney Friel chimed, “She looks awesome and is sporting a new haircut.”

Apparently, Slate’s “Post-Feminist News Babe” is back in rare form and is raring to go after giving birth to her second child (daughter Yardley Evans) on April 14. Whether or not she has shed those baby pounds and returned to her GQ pinup prime is yet to be seen. Regardless, Megyn’s avid AL acolytes are assuredly more than eager to welcome back their brainy, blond beauty.

Whether Megyn’s return to America Live is short-lived is not yet known. Once The Five has ended its run this summer, FNC Senior VP of Programming may yet promote his “rising star” to that evening hour. Nevertheless, at least, for now, welcome back, Megyn!

Jenna Lee Returns

July 18, 2011

“Back for good–for now.” Happening Now co-host Jenna Lee was radiant today as she returned to her FNC show from her honeymoon with new hubby Leif Babin, a Navy SEAL and Fordham law student. Welcoming the auburn beauty back heartily, co-anchor Jon Scott facetiously queried, “Anything big happen while you were gone?”* Shrugging her shoulders demurely, Jenna joyfully replied, “Thank you very much. You know, got married, went on a honeymoon but now I’m, I’m back: Back for good–for now.”

Sorry, boys, one of Maxim‘s “TV’s 10 Hottest News Anchors” and Ben Stein’s favorite money honey, “the heart-stoppingly beautiful” Jenna Lee, is now off the market. To boot, after an almost three-year, cross-country courtship, it sounds as if the thirty-one year old lovely may be down to serious connubial business. I.e., Jenna’s maternity leave not too far around the HN corner?

Congratulations, Jenna & Leif!

Blunt: Friel, “You’ve Been Drinking!”

April 23, 2011

Courtney: “Will you tell me [I'm beautiful]? Fox & Friends Weekend  entertainment reporter Courtney Friel, a former Maxim model, seemed to crave some carnal approval from her dreamy interviewee,  singer James Blunt. Unfortunately, for her, she got less love from him today for her postpartum body than she had received from superstar Trace Akins for her very “preggers”  figure over six months ago.

This morning, Courtney interviewed Blunt about his newest release, Some Kind of Trouble, during a promotional appearance on FNC. After asking the English vocalist about his third album, his American tour, and his private life, at length, Courtney thanked him for his appearance and then curiously concluded, “And, guess what!” Smiling, she began to sing his signature single title, trilling, “You’re beautiful.”

Laughing, Blunt exclaimed, “You’ve been drinking!” Smiling seductively, Courtney cooed, “How many people have told you that?” Acknowledging her blandishment but evading her query, Blunt replied, “That’s very sweet.”

Persisting, Courtney importuned, “Will you tell me it?” Seemingly slightly irritated, Blunt abruptly turned his head away from Courtney. Looking down, he answered, “Uh, maybe, off camera.”

Ouch. However, Courtney should not feel too bad that the handsome Blunt was not willing to stroke her postpartum ego on camera by singing, “You’re Beautiful.” After all, she can still feel somewhat confident: When she asked the more macho Trace Adkins to rate her rather preggers “[Honky Tonk] badonkadonk” on air (on F&FW six months ago), he solicitously declared, “It’s beautiful.”

Nevertheless, if Courtney still needs some reassurance about her body, perhaps, she will ask her fans the next time. But she better be prepared. Her male admirers may well request another Maxim shoot first.

“As Long as the Wife Doesn’t Mind”

October 21, 2010

John Roberts: “I have my own smoking-hot redhead. Who needs Anna Chapman?” When it comes Russia’s reified Bond babe, American Morning co-anchor John Roberts sounded today as if his fiancee Kyra Phillips, CNN Newsroom anchor, has him now on a rather short leash. And, the bad boy may have inadvertently jerked a bit on it this morning.

As Carpe Diem readers may remember, John apparently got into trouble with Kyra earlier this year (June 30) about his seeming crush on Chapman when he randily reported on the nabbed Red-hot Russian operative and her sexy Internet photos. Not only did viewers notice but, apparently, so did Kyra. When John appeared on her show CN later that morning to discuss  Chapman, Kyra teased him about his love for “sultry redheads.” When John defensively declared, “Just–just for the record, there’s only one sultry redhead that fascinates me,” Kyra responded, “Thank goodness. And, thankfully, you are engaged to her.”

Eight days later, John seemed to leave little doubt that Kyra did not care for his appreciation of the “sultry [Russian] redhead.” When John did a follow-up story on Chapman (and the other Russian spooks), he asked former F.B.I. Assistant Director Thomas Fuentes about her return to Russia. When Fuentes teased, “And, I know, John, it’s breaking your heart to see Anna Chapman go back,” an abashed John replied, “You’re gonna get me in trouble with the wife here, Tom.” Chuckling afterwards, John noted, ““Yes! My face is now the color of Anna Chapman’s hair. Imagine that!”

Today, an apparently chastened John tread more softly as AM anew covered the comely Chapman, who recently appeared scantily clad in the Russian edition of Maxim magazine. After the first airing of Jeanne Moos’ report entitled, “Russia’s Undercover Girl: Exposed spy Anna Chapman bares almost all,” of Kiran, John asked, “So, what do you think?” When co-host Kiran Chetry replied, “She’s pretty,” John dutifully replied, “I have my own smoking-hot redhead. Who needs Anna Chapman?” Laughing, Kiran added, “And you don’t want her on Maxim.” Perchance, trying to convince himself of that fact, John answered, “Yeah. And, she’s forty-two years old. She a mature woman, too. Perhaps, a bit too late for his own good, he hastily added, “And a younger woman, too. The best of all worlds.”

Possibly, mindful of his unfortunate gaffe about the age of his “mature woman,” John seemed to walk on eggs shells after producers ran Moos’ story again before the AM segue to CN. As the report ended with Vice President Joe Biden’s joke to Jay Leno about the “hot” Chapman, Kiran commented, “That was a great line by the Vice Prez.”**  Smiling, John tersely replied, “It was.” Echoing Biden, Kiran continued, “It wasn’t my idea to send her back.” Wisely, John added, “As long as the wife doesn’t care about it.”

Shortly thereafter, when John did toss to Kyra, she slightly smiled and simply said, “Good morning, guys” and went straight into her CNN Newsroom programming. No more words about “sultry redheads” today. Apparently, this “wife” just might care about it.

JD: I Wasn’t Going to Go There!

October 12, 2010

But, fiancee Kyra Phillips certainly did. As American Morning ended today, co-anchor John Roberts reported Minnesota Viking quarterback Bret Favre’s record 500th career touchdown pass (to recently acquired receiver Randy Moss). Ad libbing, John remarked, “Perfect. [He] laid it right up. So, it’s going to be a good pairing [Favre and Moss] for the rest of the season I think.” When John stopped and Kiran waited for him to elaborate, John added, “Looking forward to seeing more of that.”

Grinning, Kiran answered, “I thought you were going to say something else.” With a slight smile, John succintly said, “No.” Feigning belief, Kiran nodded and quickly echoed, “It’ll be a good pairing for the season.” Continuing the staccato colloquy, John replied, “Yeah. Tersely, Kiran countered, “Okay, good.” “Definitely,” retorted John. “Alright,” answered Kiran.” Beaming at the viewer, John responded, “Looking forward to more.”

Subsequently, when John segued to his “sweetie” and CNN Newsroom host, Kyra Phillips, she was not about to let that sleeping dog lie. Alluding to Favre’s current NFL troubles (pertaining to alleged graphic sexts sent to Jennifer Sterger, a NY Jets reporter and Playboy/Maxim model), Kyra brassily boasted, “I know what Kiran was thinking: Brett Favre, all those text messages must be inspiring him to do well on the field. Right, Kiran? Just saying!”

As Kyra’s affianced nodded his head in agreement and looked on with a sheepish grin, Kiran demurely replied, “Well, I was thinking that there is possible talk that he might, you know, get in trouble, perhaps, suspended. So, we’ll see how the rest of the season goes.” Cackling wickedly, Kyra replied, “Yes, we shall. As we know, those boys get by with a lot of trouble.”

Raising his eyebrows, John remarked, “I wasn’t going to go there!” Seeming to know him all too well, Kyra simply smiled and said, “Mm, hmm.” In response, John wisely chuckled to himself and remained silent.

A still too rare moment of AM levity. Perhaps, CNN’s new Executive VP Ken Jautz’s sage advice on improving ratings during CNN primetime is beginning to be applied in the morning. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, he said, “We need to make our primetime more compelling and engaging, sometimes more fun, you could even say.” Hopefully, AM executive producer Jamie Kraft was listening.

Major “Maxim” Garrett

September 4, 2010

Good grief? Megyn dishes on former office husband. America Live anchor Megyn Kelly took puckish pleasure at Fox News’ White House correspondent Major Garrett’s expense on his final day at FNC Friday. As the segment with Garrett began and after an job stats/Obama story, Megyn said, “Major, I’m supposed to ask you about these numbers and what the President said but we’ve already talked about them…so I got to get down to business with you. Your last day on the air with Fox News Channel: aren’t you gonna miss us?* After Garrett assured her that he would, explained his move to National Journal as a congressional correspondent, and then bantered a bit more, Megyn mischievously remarked, “Well, we were officemates….I remember when Major and I first moved in together…when I started at Fox News Channel. And, do you remember, Major, you were not there when I first moved into our office. You remember?”

Smiling and nodding his head abashedly, Garrett replied, “Right. Yes, I do.” Enjoying a bit of Schadenfreude, Megyn asked, “And, you remember what was there?” Grinning broadly, Garrett responded, “Yes, I do.” With a gleeful glint in her eye, Megyn queried, “Do you want to tell them, or should I?” Blushing, Garrett confessed, “Uh, Maxim Magazine.”

Roaring with laughter, Megyn recounted, “Bruce Becker, our then deputy bureau chief walks me into the office….Not only are [Garrett's] gym clothes all over his half of the office but Maxim Magazine was like open!” Before giggling, she added, “Maxim Mag: you know, it’s not Playboy but it’s not exactly a Disney publication either.” Still blushing, Garrett jested, “It’s not Good Housekeeping: no, it’s not. No.”

Having had her fun with Garrett, Megyn turned serious and expressed her deep respect for him. Then, she declared, “Major, we are gonna miss you desperately.” In response, Garrett stated, “Well, I appreciate that….It’s been a been a privilege and an honor to serve [the Fox audience] and what I’ve tried to do every day at this job…is serve this audience as best I can and as aggressively as I can.” Megyn concluded, “Alright, MG. Well, we will miss you. All our love and our sincere thanks. See you soon, Friend.”

Assuredly, the Fox News audience will miss Garrett, too. Fair and balanced: a job well done, Major.

[Author's aside: During the interview, Major Garrett provided two of his e-mail address for those who wished to write to him. They are as follow: majorgarrett@me.com (iPhone) and megcubed@hotmail.com.]

Friel: Bob Hope Alive

July 2, 2010

Courtney: completely clueless? If not, FNC entertainment correspondent Courtney Friel certainly did not help her case this morning. As any Fox & Friends fan knows, the former Maxim model does not always appear to be the brightest bulb on the FNC set. In fact, today, she seemed only slightly plugged in.

During an F&F segment entitled “Celebrity Charities,” Courtney seemed ill-prepared from the onset.* When co-host Alisyn Camerota questioned her about the difference between a charity and a foundation, Courtney consulted her written notes with almost every phrase. Albeit, she did appear to recuperate a bit when Aly asked about which celebrity had “the worst” charity, i.e., which one had the “fewest dollars go to the actual cause.” (Courtney replied that “the highest operating expenses were at Rosie O’Donnell’s “For All Kids Foundation,” citing Forbes.com.) Nevertheless, when Aly asked whether some of a donor’s money went to overhead rather than “the cause,” Courtney unfortunately flickered.

In her response to Aly, Courtney declared, “It seems like that. And, especially with sports fundraising, that’s like the worst thing to contribute to because Bob Hope, he has a golf tournament every year in Palm Springs, and last year they raised $1.6 million for charity but it cost five times that to run the event.”

Strangely, Aly did not appear to take notice of Courtney’s gaffe or, perchance, she hoped that the audience would ignore it, too. Rather, Aly replied, “Oh, my gosh!”

Indeed. On the eve of the Fourth of July weekend, the entertainment reporter of the armed forces “favorite” news channel does not seem to know that the most illustrious entertainer of America’s troops died almost seven year ago. Crazy!

Gretchen Pounces: Miss America vs. Miss USA

May 11, 2010

Fox & Friends beauty queen catfight? Rwwr! The 2010 Miss USA provocative promo pics really got under the skin of F&F co-anchor Gretchen Carlson this morning. Ironically, almost a year ago to the day (May 13, 2009), the former Miss America (1989) was likewise taking umbrage at Donald Trump’s edgy upstart which had the temerity to eclipse the one that made her queen. Nevertheless, not only did she rail against the racy lingerie photos at the beginning of F&F but she also pounced ferociously on the 2004 Miss USA who defended them in a later segment on the show.

When Gretchen’s producers prominently displayed four of the racy photos in the very first block today, she cattily commented, “Is that for Maxim?” Acerbically, she opined, “I think what this does is, really shows you the difference between Miss USA and Miss America. I’m a little biased as a former Miss America. There’s a talent category, there’s a scholarship aspect to it; [and] you have to do a lot of volunteer service. And, basically, be a classy person!” She added, “I’m not so sure this is the right role model situation that we want for our kids….(the) role model you want for your children, not what guys want to go home with.”

Less than an hour later, Gretchen was ready to growl again as she started her interview of 2004 Miss USA Shandi Finnessey. Starting somewhat abruptly, she queried, “Well, let me just ask you straight up. These photos, some are saying, ‘Too risque, too provocative, look a lot like the cover of Maxim magazine.’ Not really what some people would think was appropriate for a Miss USA contestant. Your thoughts?”

Somewhat meekly, Shandi answered, “I think it’s completely appropriate because the difference is Miss America and Miss USA. And Miss USA has always been a typical beauty pageant: it’s sexy, it’s fun, [and] it’s a woman of today….[Y]ou open up any magazine right now and that’s what you’re gonna to see. And, the Miss USA girls are the ones that move out to Hollywood and those are the ones who get into acting and TV hosting and modeling.” Then baring her teeth a tad, Shandi continued, “Miss America is the scholarship program….You yourself, Gretchen, you were a Miss America. But, more often, those girls…become doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, things like because it is a scholarship progam. And, so, I don’t see anything wrong with it.”

Not cottoning to that “left-handed” compliment, Gretchen scornfully retorted, “Right. I really appreciate you pointing out the stark differences between the two programs. The Miss America pageant has a talent category, of course. And, also, it’s the largest scholarship program in the world for women.” Going on the offensive again, Gretchen  continued, “But, be that as it may, why would this be appropriate just because the current magazines of our day are showing photos like this? I’m sure there are a lot of parents out there right now who have small children who are saying to themselves ‘Even though magazines do this, why should everyone just follow the trend?'”

Sharply, Shandi riposted, “Well, I think that’s what keeps Miss USA very relevant. I mean, we are such a huge, we’re on NBC and co-owned between NBC and Donald Trump. Unfortunately, Miss America who hasn’t been able to stay with the times have lost their ratings, lost their advertisement. They no longer have a network they’re even on which is very unfortunate because that was the original pageant that started in 1921.”

In response, a still game Gretchen pressed Shandi about whether Miss USA (“not afraid to be sexy”) or Miss America (“hold ourselves to a higher standard”) was “a better role model for our young people today.” Defiantly, Shandi answered, “I personally think that Miss USA is because that girl is trained to live in the 2010. I mean, she is fun, she’s sexy, she’s confident, she’s relevant, she’s tangible. Miss America oftentimes is put on such a pedestal and she lives up to these expectations…. Miss USA’s…are very real, very relevant, and current with the times. And, that is why the ratings are so high. And, that is why we still have a network.”

Taking note of Shandi’s final slight, Gretched countered, “And, currently, Miss America is in Germany visiting our troops and thanking them for their service. We’ll let our audience be the judge on that.

Gretchen, as long as viewers tune in on May 16, Miss USA will probably not care if she is a role model.

Courtney: For Entertainment Only

March 16, 2010

Fox & Friends Weekend viewers, just sit back and enjoy the view of former Maxim model Courtney Friel. On Red Eye this morning, F&FW’s newest feature correspondent Courtney Friel assured her FNC fans that she does not intend to bother them with her political opinions. After host Greg Gutfeld asked Courtney whether axed NYT executive editor Howell Raines’ slam of Fox News in the Washington Post Sunday was “sour grapes,” she agreed. Then, she quickly added, “But, look! No one has ever tried to influence me to think a certain way [or] to vote a certain way. I tried to stay out of all the political drama surrounding FNC: that’s why I cover entertainment!”*

Courtney Friel Resurrected

October 30, 2009

Happy Halloween from Courtney Friel, Fox News’ Morticia! Dressed in black, the former blond bikini Maxim model, seemingly, came back to life on the Live Desk today after her disappearance on September 3 (according to Inside Cable News).* However, like an apparition, her presence was strangely short-lived after she introduced a sound bite mid-story that failed to materialize.

Welcome back, Courtney! Maybe, you can stick around for a while next time.

Courtney on Cavuto!

January 6, 2009

Courney Friel on Your World with Neil Cavuto today: Crazy! Of course, Cavuto fans know that he likes the lissome lovelies: notice the frequent exposure that he lavishes on the voluptuous Victoria’s Secret models? Few red-blooded males blame him.

However, when FNC’s entertainment correspondent and former Maxim model suddenly appeared today as a Your World business reporter explaining Hyundai’s special return program for car buyers who lose their jobs, the author was taken aback. Even if Courtney has handled her entertainment correspondent responsibilities well, she has had some difficulties when she tried to take on more serious news as a Fox & Friends co-host. Nevertheless, she did well in her latest round robin role.

After the car segment, maybe a casino or lingerie segment is in the offing for Your World with Courtney.

BFF: “Breast Friends 4 Fox”

December 26, 2008

Fox & Friends guest co-anchor Courtney Friel embraced her fans and meteorologist Domenica Davis close to her bosom this morning. For her Maxim fans, Courtney eschewed her earlier Hunker holiday habit in favor of a low-cut, hiked-high burgundy dress proudly presenting her womanly charms. For Domenica Davis, she complimented the Latin lovely on her hot pink top and dubbed her Double D. On F&F’s last Hooters’ 25th Anniversary celebration today, the theme of the day seemed to be BFF (“Breast Friends 4 Fox”).

Talking Barbie

July 5, 2008

Maxim model and Fox & Friends Weekend newsreader Courtney Friel coined a neologism, “uncompopously” today. In a segment on Jesse Helms’ death, she read, “Foes remember him as an uncompar [sic], uncompopously [sic] defiant man.” Whatever. Stupid writers. Apparently, F&FW’s Barbie in yet another midi meant “uncompromisingly.” No more hard words for Courtney: the chastened headline news readers changed the text. Now Jesse Helms was not an uncompromisingly defiant man” to his foes but a “tenacious opponent.” What were you thinking, you F&FW pedantic penners?

Lesson Learned?

June 28, 2008

Black and white: is that the lesson learned by Clayton Briggs and Dave Briggs from Alisyn Camerota and Brian Kilmeade, co-hosts of FNC’s regular Fox & Friends? The usual weekend silliness of Fox & Friends Weekend seems to have subsided somewhat today but the black and white wardrobe of Clayton, Dave, and Ainsley Earhardt is risible. (Ainsley, in a conservative twist, has a high collar and lower hem.) Even Maxim model Courtney Friel was in on the action today with her below-the-knee skirt: however, she could not resist the temption to, at least, accent her assets with a cradling duo top that limned her bosom yet hid it from view.

F&FW suits, Aly’s lesson: news taken seriously with a fun, sexy side.
