AM’s Roberts: RED-Blooded

“Your going to get me in trouble with the wife here, Tom.” Oh!Anna again, John? Apparently, engaged American Morning co-anchor John Roberts just can not help eying the spy, Anna Chapman, Russia’s sexy supposed spook. Eight days ago, fiancee Kyra Phillips, host of CNN Newsroom, gave John grief about his apparent fascination with the ravishing red-headed Ruskie. Today, former F.B.I. Assistant Director Thomas Fuentes joined in the jibing at John.

During a segment entitled “A Spy for a Spy: Russian and U.S. negotiating swap,” Fuentes opined that some of the purported Russian spies may not want to return because, in part, they may get bad reviews from Russia’s “KGB.” When John countered that some Russian spies were on postage stamps, Fuentes explained that their mission might be deemed a failure because they had not procured any state secrets. Then, Fuentes nettled, “And, I know, John, it’s breaking your heart to see Anna Chapman go back but I think you’ll see her on the talk show circuit in no time and these guys will be celebrities once this all settles.”*

Chuckling while reddening, John responded, “You’re gonna get me in trouble with the wife here, Tom.” When the interview ended, guest co-host Kate Bolduan teased, “I think someone’s blushing: Something I’ve always tried to do, and Tom Fuentes is the one that can accomplish it.” Chagrined, John good-naturedly conceded, “Yes! My face is now the color of Anna Chapman’s hair. Imagine that!” Writhing in amusement, Kate laughed, “Oh, my god!”

John, surely, not the Coolidge effect already!

    […] Eight days later, John seemed to leave little doubt that Kyra did not care for his appreciation of that particular “sultry 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!” […]
