Glam Elam: See Ya, CNN!

Looking extra glam in her freshly curled coif and her red decollete dress, CNN biz beauty Stephanie Elam bid adieu to her American Morning colleagues and fans this morning. As her final segment on AM concluded, Stephanie turned to co-hosts Kiran Chetry and Ali Velshi, saying, “Can I just say goodbye to you guys?…[I]t has been awesome being here: But, today is my last day. And, I’m moving to California.”

Leaning in toward Aly and Kiran, Stephanie declared, “I just want to say that I have had so much fun with you guys.” Then, pointing out into the studio, Stephanie added, “And, the people you don’t see behind here, all the guys who are on the stage, are fantastic and they make the morning so joyful. So, I’m going to miss you guys! As the floor crew erupted in applause, Stephanie, exclaimed, “Love you guys!”

Concurring, Kiran replied, “They, do! We’re already gonna miss you.” Chiming in, Ali remarked, “We’ve been sort of dodging the issue because it’s kind of sad.” Stephanie answered, “I know. But, this is my last time on American Morning so I gotta say it.”

Nodding her head in agreement, Kiran remarked, “Well, we love you. And, I think of it as just not goodbye but I think of it as we’re gonna keep in touch.”

Then, as an aside to the AM audience, Kiran elaborated, “She’s been juggling a cross-country marriage and a little new baby, and you know something had to give.”

Laughing, Stephanie concurred, “So, there. So, we’re going back.”

Best of success, Stephanie!

[Author’s aside: To her Twitter followers, Stephanie went into greater detail, Tweeting, “While I’m so excited about moving back to CA after (20!) years away, I’m so sad to leave #CNN and a job I LOVE!” However, she failed to mention that she had lived in Saratoga, CA, and that her family includes hubby/investment banker Jeff Rush and their eleven-month-old daughter.]
