MJ: “Oh, We Love Nicole [Petallides]! Don’t We?”

November 10, 2012

Dave Briggs: “We do indeed!” FBN’s sultry siren Nicole Petallides heated up the Fox & Friends Weekend studio again this morning, much to the delight of co-anchors Mike Jerrick and Dave Briggs. As the long-legged, short-skirted Greek beauty sashayed toward the curvy couch in a tease for her post-break upcoming business segment), Mike sighed, “Oh, we love Nicole! Don’t we?”* As Nicole beamed broadly, Dave exclaimed, “We do indeed!”

And, do they ever. As F&FW fans may remember almost two years ago, Nicole saucily displayed her Red Eye “exhibitionist” side: With two memorable hikes of her skirt, she seduced her F&FW audience and mesmerized¬†its co-hosts (especially, a very appreciative Mike). Earlier this year (January 28), Nicole was simply her usual sensual self on the curvy couch: Clad in a short black skirt and a low-cut blue top, she rendered an enraptured Dave virtually mute as he nervously coughed continuously throughout their interview.

Apparently, it just comes naturally for Nicole. On F&FW (March 24) as a guest co-host, she revealed her “little secret” to captivated co-anchor Clatyon Morris that she her (pre-cell) CB handle was “Wonder Woman” as she cruised the the Long Island Expressway in her Datsun 280ZX.** Furthermore, she has enchanted her FBN fans as a “Foxy’s Angel” on Happy Hour (alongside regular Rebecca Diamond nee Gomez and guest Sandra Smith). And, now, she serves as FBN’s resident “Stocks Fox.”

FBN’s Nicole: FNC’s future F&FW Fox?

Nicole: Exhibitionist Angel?

April 26, 2010

Confessions of Nicole Petallides? Ever since Carpe Diem reported that Nicole heated up the Fox & Friends set by seemingly hiking her skirt twice for her Fox & Friends Weekend fans (October 11, 2009), the Foxy FBN correspondent has appeared to be almost persona non grata on FBN’s big sister network FNC. However, Nicole did make a rare appearance about three months later on Red Eye (January 9, 2010) where she kidded about being an “exhibitionist.”* Also, she returned once to F&FW (March 7, 2010) for a jobs report segment with co-host Dave Briggs: Nevertheless, for almost the entire interview, the producers appeared to studiously keep the chyron up to occlude a view of her legs (a la Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show).**

What has become of this too-hot-for-FNC correspondent? Last Thursday and Friday, the Greek goddess who graces the New York Stock Exchange floor clad in quite conservative attire for FBN’s Countdown to the Closing Bell (CCB) guest-hosted on FBN’s Happy Hour with regular Rebecca Diamond nee Gomez and fill-in Sandra Smith for a special “Ladies’ Night” edition. Venus was reborn.

On Thursday, all three were such a distaff delight with their obvious smarts, informed analyses, and sexy short skirts that Happy Hour producers introduced the trio after one commercial break as “Foxy’s Angels” to the voice of John Forsythe and the theme song and graphics of Charlie’s Angels.*** A flattered Nicole remarked, “Can we see it again? Can we see it again between now and the end of the show? It went so fast!”

Similarly, Nicole’s F&FW admirers must be asking, “When can we see you again?”

*Red Eye – 01/09/10 (@3:04 a.m. ET): In a segment on a study that showed a cocaine vaccine made the addicts crave cocaine more, RE host Greg Gutfeld said, “What kind of behavior would you like to stop if there were a vaccine?” Nicole replied, “If I had a vaccine for myself? Um. Exhibitionist? Then, when Greg goatishly asked, “Really?” Nicole “innocently” answered, “No, no. Chocoholic?” Gutfeld sidekick Bill Shulz rakishly remarked, “Let’s get back to the other one!” Trying to tamp down the testosterone just a tad, Nicole riantly responded, “No, no, no, no. But this vaccine’s unbelievable….”I’m all for sex, drugs, and alcohol, and lots of fun but not ones that put you on your deathbed. Right? Or, make you go broke!”

Briggs 2 Mexico: F&FW to Hispania?

February 13, 2010

As co-anchor Dave Briggs vacations in Mexico, Fox & Friends Weekend appropriately reached out to its Hispanic audience and chose Carlos Amezcua. In mien, Amezcua reminds the author of former Fox & Friends co-host Kelly Wright, who also seemed somewhat serious for F&F’s weekend fare. Once the author learned that Amezcua is a thirty-year journalist with ten Emmys, a “Golden Mikes” award, etc., he understood why Amezcua might be more comfortable behind the news desk rather than on the curvy couch.

Amezcua has done an excellent job this morning co-anchoring with Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris. However, he provides more gravitas than to which F&FW viewers have grown accustomed. Perhaps, the clearly talented Amezcua would serve FNC better as an afternoon or evening anchor. As for F&FW, it would certainly do well to avail itself of more Hispanics, especially, ones with an informed yet fun, fresh flair for the news.

According to Amezcua, he will be back in Los Angeles tomorrow. For tomorrow, Mr. Shine? Geraldo Rivera is no fresh face and he has Geraldo Live. Julie Banderas, too, has her own weekend show. Perhaps, Rebecca Diamond nee Gomez? FNC may need a deeper Hispanic bench.

Update: At the end of the show after this entry was posted, Amezcua clarified that he would return to host F&FW tomorrow. According to Rick, Dave will be off for two weeks. Ergo, the question and issue remain pertinent for next week and in the future.

Gretch Not Enough: F&F Newsreader Needed

July 17, 2008

Gretch is not enough! Fox & Friends urgently needs a new newsreader. Without Aly, the trio of Gretchen Carlson, Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade are, as Barack Obama might say, watchable “enough.” Without Alisyn Camerota (reportedly moved to F&F Weekend), F&F desparately requires a sexy, savvy lass to reinvigorate the show. Otherwise, there may be more than a few migrations to CNN’s American Morning with the eminently watchable Kiran Chetry.

Suggestion: Bring in FBN’s Greek goddess Nicole Petallides, spicy siren Rebecca Gomez, or someone similar.
