Megyn: I Can Die Now!

With KISS front man Gene Simmons on set Friday, America Live anchor Megyn Kelly acted as giddy as a school girl at a Jonas Brothers concert. After introducing him and “his wagging tongue” (and his business partner) for an interview* ostensibly about health care reform, Megyn ducked her head demurely and cooed, “It’s so exciting to have you here first of all.” Then, when he subsequently grabbed her right hand and kissed it, Megyn gushed, “Oh, that’s nice. Oh, Gene Simmons is kissing my hand. I can die now!”

Subsequently, she said, “Everyone’s telling me, ‘He’s a genius. You can ask him about anything.” In response, the co-founder of Cool Springs Life immediately began his spiel on one’s need to be educated–about one’s life options. Trying to redirect Simmons, Megyn declared, “You have some strong opinions, I’m told, when it comes to, for example…health care.” Simmons replied, “Oh, it’s horrific!”

Megyn countered, “You voted for President Obama: you’ve been open about that.” Simmons answered, “I did” and added that he, “like most Americans…[was] closer to the center.” Elaborating further, he opined that the American foreign policy was “pathetic” and “wimpy” and that “in terms of the economy, fiscally, we think the worst thing we could do now is health care.” After then bemoaning the government’s involvement in health care, he began his promotion of his life insurance company anew, saying, “That’s one of the reasons why we’re here: we’re here to talk about your [viewers’] options.”

Then the sale was on and it went on and on and on. At one point, “Megyn aptly declared, “Wow! This is like an infomercial.” Yet, still it did not end. Later, as she concluded the interview, Megyn laughed, “Well, that, that went in an interesting direction!” And, so it  had.

The dangers of interviewing one’s childhood crush, perhaps?

One Response to “Megyn: I Can Die Now!”

  1. The Army Says:

    Poor Megyn:

    I’ve worked with Gene and KISS. Gene is so overblown as to the big business man. It’s all an act. Gene will throw 100 things into the air, maybe one of them works.

    $immons Records was a flop (in the 80’s) He didn’t have one act even go gold on his music imprint. He reactivated it back in 2006. His first artist, Bag, on the new label sold a minuscule 3,500 units.

    Look at the pathetic impact Simmons/Abrams have had on marketing the Indy Racing League. It’s been a joke.

    If you go back to KISS in the mid to late 80’s, they were basically broke. For a manager they were using Paul Stanleys shrink. He took off with some of their money.

    Really until the KISS reunion happened back in 1996, that’s when Gene made most of his money and since then off KISS touring and licensing their merchandise and putting the KISS logo on anything and everything.

    On the day before Megyn interviewed Gene, one of his latest ventures filed for bankruptcy protection:

    There is a huge laundry list of Gene’s failed business ideas. He should stick to KISS ventures because other than that (his movies and other things) have been failures.

    Also if Megyn saw his “sex tape” that hit the net last year, she would see that the only thing long on Gene is his tongue. The rest is rather lacking for the ladies out there.
