Aly’s RESOLVE: Back to NBC

February 27, 2011

To where she once belonged? Perhaps. Wednesday Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Alisyn Camerota excitedly promoted her upcoming infertility awareness interview–not on her current network, FNC, but on her old one, NBC. She Tweeted, “I’ll be on the @todayshow tomorrow at 8:08 am about my volunteer work with an infertility support group and my own story. Hope you tune in!” [N.B. Aly has since deleted this seemingly verboten Tweet made at “10:10 AM Feb 24 by web” but it is available as a true Twitter Retweet here.]

Somewhat surprised by Aly’s future appearance on another network, the author quickly and playfully Tweeted back, “What channel is that on, Aly? ;-) Will u also be talking about ur infertility support group work & ur personal story on F&F, too?”  Aly did not respond.

Nevertheless, Aly made sure that her Twitter followers, including the author, did not miss her interview on the Today Show Thursday. Soon after her appearance on the program, she excitedly Tweeted, “Here’s a clip from my @todayshow appearance this morning! http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/41755675#41755675.” Only forty minutes later, she linked to a related article that she had penned for Today’s Moms entitled, “Alisyn Camerota: Why I’m speaking out about my struggled with fertility.” However, this weekend, on her own morning news show (Fox & Friends Weekend), Alisyn strangely did not even mention her infertility awareness cause nor her NBC special appearance to tout it.

Or was it so strange? This February does mark the thirteen anniversary  of Aly at Fox News after working at NBC (WHDH-TV Boston). Perhaps, her contract is about to run out and she is considering a return to the Peacock Network. Not too mention, FNC Senior Veep of Programming Bill Shine may have been doing a Fox & Friends Weekend audition with two different gals, Dana Perino and Molly Line, substituting for Aly only last weekend.

Stay tuned. But, to what channel? Both.

[Author’s aside: Re “RESOLVE” in the rubric of this article, Aly serves as a volunteer for RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. In fact, last year, Aly was a RESOLVE Peer-Led Support Group Leader and the Mistress of Ceremonies at RESOLVE’s 2010 Night of Hope Gala award show.

5 Straight Days: 5 Hot Hostesses!

February 22, 2011

A rehabbed Charlie Sheen’s schedule? No, it was Fox & Friends’ rotation from Friday through today. In quick succession, F&F fans were treated to hot and spicy Alisyn Camerota Friday, attractive brainiac Dana Perino Saturday, gorgeous girl-next-door Molly Line Sunday, sexy Southern belle Ainsley Earhardt Monday, and proud beauty queen Gretchen Carlson today. It was almost as if FNC Senior Programming Veep Bill Shine were giving his viewers the proverbial lady lineup from which to choose to spend some quality time in the near future.

Perhaps, it was merely a matter of Gretchen taking a few weekdays off and Aly vacationing over the weekend. However, it seemed to the author more as if Shine were potentially toying with the idea of changing up his F&F and F&FW casts. E.g., was he considering promoting Aly or Ainsley to F&F weekday and auditioning Dana and Molly for the center seat on F&FW? Or, maybe, Shine simply wanted to make sure that his F&F audiences did not fall victim to the Coolidge effect.

If so, he succeeded.

Molly’s Bottom Line

February 22, 2011

Rick’s secret advice: “break a leg” or “show some leg”? As FNC correspondent Molly Line made her virgin appearance on Fox & Friends Weekend as a guest co-host, she received some sage off-camera advice from her former WFXT-FOX 25 (Boston, MA) colleauge, F&FW meteorologist Rick Reichmuth.* And, F&FW co-anchor Dave Briggs let the viewers in on it. Sorta.

As F&FW began, Dave introduced Alisyn Camerota’s sexy auburn-tressed substitute, Molly. Clad in her short, sleeveless M&M-green dress, she partially obscured her long gams by putting her laptop screen up (unlike her co-hosts, Dave and Clayton Morris). However, she seemed to coyly tease her viewers with her hem hiked just high enough to reveal a scintilla of her apparent Spanx shorts.

And, perhaps, Molly’s distaff display was no accident. Less than ten minutes later, when it was time for the weather forecast, a smiling Dave segued saying, “Let’s get to Rick Reichmuth, who just had the best advice for Molly Line this morning. Unfortunately, we cannot repeat what he said to her just a few moments ago.”** As Molly tittered, a laughing Rick exclaimed, “Watch it, Dave! Watch it!” Then, offering her fans a hint, Molly rejoined, “It was right along the lines of good luck. Right?”

Right along the lines of “good luck”? In the theater, “Break a leg!,” is a traditional good-luck wish (according to  Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable). And, with little doubt, Rick’s unrepeatable advice was a racy take on that entertainment exhortation. Perchance, rather than “break a leg, Molly,” it was “show some leg, Molly!” And, did she ever! In fact, she did him one better: she generously showed both of them–with pluck and aplomb.

*It was Molly’s first appearance on F&FW as co-anchor according to the author’s recollection.
