To the strains of “Sexyback,” an alluring American Morning correspondent Alina Cho took the higher ground today during “Obama’s First 100 Days” segment. Literally. Since her usual sexy stilts (as AM co-host John Roberts is wont to call them)* were not enough for the cameraman to juxtapose her to a more statuesque Kiran Chetry, the 5’2″ Korean cutie gamely stood atop a black box.
Today was just another example of how the rather demure Asian beauty takes her short stature in stride. In an earlier “Model Boot Camp” story, Alina boasted, “I’ve never been afraid of a high heel.”* When John then commented that her heels were the tallest that he had ever seen, she asked, “What do you do when you’re 5’2″?”* To the dismay of many of her male fans, thus far, she does not take the conventional fashion counsel to shorten her midi/maxi hemline to add height (or give a leggier look).
Apparently, Alina is not a fan of Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!**
