Dave: “We Love Molly” But Ainz “Hot Mama”

May 31, 2011

Briggs/Earhardt’s “Heat and Meat” II: a Fox & Friends [Memorial] Weekend sequel. In 2009, a frisky, ringless Ainsley Earhardt co-hosted Memorial Day with co-anchors Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris: Yes, she racily commented on Dave’s “meat” but, more infamously, she–or, more specifically, her rump (and Janice Dean’s arse) was ogled by the appreciative eye of Dave. While Carpe Diem reported the bawdy humor, Jay Leno lampooned Dave’s eyeing of the delightful derrieres of Ainsley (and Janice). Not too surprisingly, in 2010, FNC Executive VP of Programming Bill Shine put in a somewhat more boring beauty, Courtney Friel, to co-host the F&F Memorial Day edition.

However, this year, Shine gave the buxom blonde another chance as he let Ainsley once again co-host the F&F Memorial Day special (and the prior Sunday for good measure). Even though she did have to share her holiday-weekend-center-seat-curvy-couch duties with the “new girl” Molly Line (who subbed for regular co-anchor Alisyn Camerota on F&F Friday and Saturday), she did get more air time as she saucily celebrated the early beginning of the holiday weekend as F&F’s Fleet Week NYC 2011 troop correspondent aboard the U.S.S. Iwo-Jima Friday.

Before her first segment Friday, Ainsley appeared live in a preview excitedly waving to the F&F audience as she happily posed with the sailors on deck the U.S.S. Iwo-Jima.* As she did, Ainsley’s belly button was bared and producers simultaneously aired Trace Adkin’s “Hot Mama” paean. When F&F returned from break, Dave introduced Ainsley, saying, “It is Fleet Week in New York City, and our own Ainsley Earhardt on a very tough assignment today aboard the U.S.S. Iwo-Jima.”**

Flirtatiously, Dave continued, “Ainsley, I don’t know if you heard but the song introing [sic] you was “Hot Mama,” we played earlier: I’m guess the troops there share the sentiment.” As Clayton gave a thumbs up in ardent agreement and Molly chuckled, Ainsley cooed, “Awww….You are so sweet!” In response, Dave boyishly ducked his head and grinned.

A few days later, on Memorial Day, Dave, Clayton, and Ainsley reprised their ribald “meat” revelry in spite of the fact that the only cooking segment included only Dave and three other males. When the Monday program commenced, Clayton jested, “Can  you handle more meat this morning, Dave?” In answer, Dave retorted, “Clayton, no, I cannot. I am maxed out, man!”

Unfortunately or not, Dave was assuredly not completely”maxed out”: perhaps, it was the “hand holding” less than ten minutes later by Ainsley.*** After Ainsley had read the headline news stories, Dave placed his left hand on the curvy couch. Shortly, thereafter, Ainsley put hers down next to Dave’s and touched it briefly and then moved her hand forward. When she did, Dave tapped her hand thrice and she began to respond in kind. As she did, Clayton joked, “You guys holding hands over here?” Smiling sheepishly, Dave retorted, “We are holding hands.” Laughing, Ainsley, added, “Kumbayah!”

Approximately, twenty minutes later, when F&F returned after the first half hour break, Clayton comically commented, “[T]his morning, we asked you earlier in the show–Dave put out the call: Please send us photos of your meat.”**** Dave interjected, “And, no, that does not include you, New York Congressman [Anthony Weiner]. We don’t want your photos!” Shaking her head with a naughty smile, Ainsley guffawed, “You did not just say that!”

Yes, he did, Ainsley. Even if Molly turns out to be the new F&FW siren that Dave loves, he does not seem to be able to shake you, his first F&FW wife. But, who knows? Maybe, he won’t have to after all.

Molly Line: “The New Girl!”

May 24, 2011

Aly: “Hi, Molly! Great to see you.” Today, America’s Newsroom guest host Alisyn Camerota so welcomed Molly Line, her Fox & Friends Weekend fill-in for three weeks running, to AN to report on New York politics.* Unfortunately for their F&FW fans, the two failed to even mention any Fox News politics as to Aly’s absence (and Molly’s consequent presence) on the show lately.

However, yesterday, Fox & Friends co-hosts, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade did allude to this new dynamic on F&FW. As the show began with Molly in the middle on the curvy couch, Steve said, “Welcome aboard, folks, to Fox & Friends. Brian, introduce the new girl!”

Grinning broadly, Brian jested, “I’m sorry, Steve. I’m so rude! Molly’s here today.”

Giggling, Molly replied, “Thanks, guys. Happy to be here!”

Turning to Molly, Brian observed, “And, you’ve been here a lot, though. You’ve been on the weekends quite often.” Smiling, Molly answered, “Yeah, I’ve been doing the weekends with Clayton and Dave. It’s been great. Everybody’s been wonderful.”

Subsequently, segueing to the headlines, Steve remarked, “Well, we know that you are normally posted in Boston and it’s great to have you today because we have a lot of breaking news.”

Seemingly, assuring Bill Shine, FNC Executive VP of Programming, that she was more than happy with her new commute, Molly promptly replied, “Yeah. A quick little hop down.”

“The new girl”: THE new girl? With Aly’s return uncertain and FNC anchor Juliet Huddy “on the mend,” Molly seems to be making a good case for it.

[Caveat: FNC correspondent Ainsley Earhardt’s appearance Saturday may indicate that the former F&FW co-host herself may be now under consideration to rejoin Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs on the F&FW curvy couch.]

Janice Dean: “Out of My Pajamas”

May 23, 2011

And, missing her Teddy, too. FNC meteorologist, Janice Dean, may have left her bed even more reluctantly than usual this morning. Today, the “Weather Machine”  had to “get out of [her] pajamas” and leave her new baby Teddy (and his two-year-old brother Matthew) at home as her maternity leave ended. Bearing photos of her beautiful little boy to work, the tearful mommy was amicably welcomed back by Happening Now co-anchors, Jenna Lee and Jon Scott.

As HN returned from its penultimate ad break, Jon and Jenna stood on each side of a beaming Janice as she tightly embraced them both. Then, as she recounted that she had signed off with them on HN right before her maternity leave, she proudly displayed three pics of her “Theodore Patrick Newman” for the HN audience.

When Jenna asked how her Teddy’s older brother was doing, Janice jested, “Matthew is okay. [But], he’s not the king of the hill anymore.” Segueing to a photo of Jon with Teddy on his lap, Janice related that Jon had visited both Matthew and Teddy and had brought “beautiful gifts.”

Likewise, Janice expressed her appreciation to her FNC fans, too. As she started to cry, Jon and Jenna ribbed her good-naturedly. Janice declared, “This is first day back so I’m allowed to get emotional and they’re all watching right now.” Tugging at her left ear lobe, Janice continued , “So, what does Carol Burnett do? She goes like this just to tell everybody that they’re loved. They’re loved, and mommy has to earn a paycheck.”

After the show, Janice elaborated, “It’s going to take a day or two to get my ‘footing.’ I have been missing my boys.”

Actually, the aptly self-dubbed “Dancing Weather Machine” doesn’t seem to have missed a step. Or, even a beat.

Aly Back? Molly Laughs–Again

May 23, 2011

Dave shrugs and Clayton replies, “We don’t know.” Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Alisyn Camerota has been strangely missing from her show for about six weeks, and her fans are beginning to wonder if she is ever coming back. And, the “temporary” trio of co-hosts, Clayton Morris, Dave Briggs, and Molly Line do not appear eager to allay any fears of Aly’s fans. In fact, Aly herself recently seemed to suggest cryptically that rumors of her departure from the show may be true.

Yesterday, for the second week running, Clayton, Dave, and Molly, discussed Aly’s absence from the show in a rather curious fashion. As F&FW concluded Sunday, Clayton remarked, “Our thanks to Molly Line for filling in this week. To those of you who asked when Aly’s coming back, she says, “Early June.” As he did, guest co-anchor Molly Line laughed heartily while a smiling co-host Dave Briggs pursed his lips, shrugged his shoulders, and shook his head repeatedly (as if to say no). After a pregnant pause, Clayton continued, “We don’t know.”

Similarly, last week (May 14 – Saturday), the three played out a similar scene when discussing Aly’s possible return. In it, the three almost appeared to have been rehearsing for yesterday: Molly chuckled at the prospect of Aly’s coming “back in the near future”; Dave smilingly shrugged his shoulders and shook his head (as if to say no); and Clayton uncertainly said, “She [Aly] might be back next weekend. Aly, let us know.” [Italics added for emphasis.]

Perhaps, Aly has done just that. Indirectly. Last Thursday (March 19), Aly Tweeted, “Not sure why I feel compelled to retweet RT @vin16_in_jersey: @AlyatFox the best utility anchor in the biz. u need to get your own show….” Perchance, Aly was so “compelled” not because she was deemed the best utility anchor in the biz but, rather, she, in fact, does need her own show now.

Bill O’Reilly: It’s Just What Nature Dictated

May 20, 2011

Fox & Friends’ Gretchen Carlson: “What!…Oh, my god!” FNC ratings king Bill O’Reilly had his Factor “Culture Warrior” bug-eyed in disbelief at his battle-of-the-sexes analysis this morning on F&F. Before O’Reilly’s usual Friday appearance on her show, F&F co-anchor Gretchen Carlson and her co-anchors, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, discussed a recent USC study that indicated that the stress levels of married men in “dual-earner” marriages were lowered when they relaxed as their wives did the housework whereas the stress levels of married women diminished when their husbands helped them do the household chores.

When O’Reilly joined the co-hosts on the phone, Steve asked, “Bill, do you find this as disturbing to watch as I do?”* “No,” answered O’Reilly emphatically. “Why not? queried Steve. “Because it’s just what nature dictated. You know?” answered O’Reilly.

Startled at O’Reilly’s words, Gretchen suddenly straightened in her center seat. As her eyebrows arched, her eyes widened, and her lips pursed, Gretchen exclaimed, “What!” Unapologetically, O’Reilly explained, “Adam and Eve. You do the chores, [and] I’ll relax. All of that.”

Again, Gretchen’s jaw tightened, her eyebrows furrowed, and her eyes bulged. As a smiling Steve mischievously nodded his agreement with O’Reilly, Brian jested, “Hey, look at the jungle and the lions. The men don’t do any of the work in the jungle: it’s the women that take care of the kids and kill the caribou and then bring it back. And, the guy just sits there with his hair grown out!”

Offering O’Reilly a final chance to redeem himself, a hopeful Gretchen asked, “So, what you’re saying, O’Reilly, then is that you like having somebody else do your chores?” Eschewing his lifeline, O’Reilly responded, “Um, you know, I, I’m a kind of guy who’s a very intellectual type of person who is kinda just always thinking about the universe and the country and the welfare of all human beings.” Chauvinistically, he concluded, “But, you know, the chore thing just takes care of itself: I don’t know how that happens but it does.”

Looking at Brian with a incredulous look on her face, Gretchen exclaimed, “Oh, my god!”

Sticking up for his male colleague O’Reilly, Steve added, “Natural selection–of, duties.”

But, boys, what of nurture?

“Barracuda” Palin Bites Gingrich Back

May 20, 2011

“What in the heck did you mean?…Bless [your] heart.” Possible GOP Prez candidate Palin bit back hard against Newt Gingrich last night for his acerbic criticism of her four months ago in the aftermath of the Tucson shootings. In an interview with Greta van Susteren on On the Record, the former Alaskan governor was asked whether the media challenge of Gingrich for his recent attack on House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan (as “radical change” and “right-wing social engineering”) was right.* Palin replied, “[T]he media…we all have a right to ask Speaker Gingrich, ‘What in the heck did you mean that Paul Ryan’s budget plan is “radical” or “social engineering”?’ No, what is ‘radical’ is not proposing a plan to counter Obama’s budget plan that has us on the road to bankruptcy.”

Subsequently, Van Susteren observed that another GOP 2012 candidate, former PA Sen. Rick Santorum, should be grateful that the Gingrich controversy overshadowed his comment (that Sen. John McCain, Palin’s 2008 GOP Prez running mate, did not understand torture). Smiling sardonically, Palin answered, “[W]hat I thought after the whole Newt Gingrich thing in these last twenty-four hours, Greta, was bless his heart and every other good old boy’s heart that’s in that political game in the Beltway. They don’t really know any more than the rest of us.”

Seemingly, still smarting from Gingrich’s acerbic counsel to her after she accused her media critics of “blood libel” (after they seemed to insuate that she bore some responsibility for the apparent assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ),” Palin sniped, “Greta, it was Newt Gingrich who told me in January of this year Sarah Palin needs to slow down and really think through what is that she has to say. Well, you know, he, he stumbles, too. We all stumble: We all have our strengths and our weaknesses.”

With a bloodied Gingrich in the GOP waters, a hungry Sarah Barracuda was more than ready to feed.

AM Adopts F&F’s Couch (But, Shep’s Commode?)

May 17, 2011

The De-Klein and Fall of American Morning in one day? Today AM co-hosts Christine Romans and Ali Velshi and their audience celebrated the long-awaited arrival of their cozy “curvy couch” (a la FNC’s Fox & Friends). However, regrettably, along with it came a real Fox News seat–the unflushed porcelain throne of Shepard Smith–still filled with the Ole Miss devotee’s disgusting dung, i.e., the offensive seven-year old Trampoline Bear video.

As AM began today, the camera panned over the comfy couch that AM co-host Kiran Chetry had apparently teased almost three months ago to reporter Tommy Christopher. For far too long, the AM audience had suffered under the inane adage of former CNN chief Jon Klein that “couches/chairs sap energy.” However, today, his successor Ken Jautz clearly took yet another shackle off of his AM co-hosts to free them to be “more upbeat,” “more compelling…engaging, [and] sometimes more fun.” I.e., to sit down and talk to their AM audience as personal friends and family rather than stand and chat with them as casual acquaintances and customers.

Unfortunately, Ali and Christine spoiled the delightful debut of AM‘s divan with a gratuitously thrice-aired video of ugly, ursine plight. After running a headline news story about a little brown bear near some Albuquerque, New Mexico, apartments (that had to be sedated and then lowered by ropes into a bag), Christine gleefully commented, “That gives us, of course, an excuse to resurrect this oldie but goodie.”

Chiming in (a la Shep de Sade), Ali exclaimed, “I, I never get tired of this one. This is Missoula, Montana, a similar situation.” As the Trampoline Bear vid ran showing the black bear falling from the tree onto the trampoline, being hurled high into the air, plunging into the hard earth, and then crumpling under its own weight, Christine chortled, “Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!, and Ali cooed, “Ooh! Oww!”

Trying to assuage her horrified viewers, Christine hastily added, “He was fine! He was fine!” Then, as AM producers aired anew the repulsive footage, Ali baldly asserted, “I’d only show this to you again because he was fine.” Offering his personal color commentary as the bear took its crushing course into an unforgiving ground, Aly continued, “He bumps on the trampoline once and then [pause] off the trampoline.” Then, incredibly, the AM producers ran the video a third time for good–or, rather evil–measure.

About thirty minutes later, Christine and Aly cheerfully exhibited their Cyclopean couch to their viewers as they returned from break.** As the camera closed in on them, a blushing Christine chuckled and Aly announced, “We have our new couch!” Christine commented, “I like it.” Concurring, Ali replied, “I like this, too.”

So does the author. In fact, he suggested the couch about two and half years ago when Klein was in control. Bouquets, Jautz, for the welcome change.

But, brickbats, Ali and Christine, for adopting Shep’s used toilet. Flush his filth and clean CNN’s studio. And, apologize to your AM fans.

F&FW’s New Siren?

May 16, 2011

Fox & Friends [Strange] Weekend: Juliet Huddy a no-show, Alisyn Camerota in “limbo,” and Molly Line happy to be there. For F&FW fans, Juliet’s broken promise, Aly’s uncertain future, and Molly’s viability were all legitimate areas of inquiry after last weekend.

The drama this weekend actually began a week earlier on May 7 after Juliet’s successful subbing for Aly on F&FW on Friday.  To her Twitter followers, she Tweeted, “Great time with da boyz this am. Show flew by. On FnF’s Fri and Sat this coming week.” Nevertheless, Juliet did not appear on either show as she had said: rather, Ainsley Earhardt guest-hosted Friday for Gretchen Carlson on F&F, and Molly Line temp’d Saturday for Alisyn Camerota on F&FW. Interestingly, Juliet did not explain either of her absences to her rather perturbed Twitter followers.

The second segment of this strange saga got even more intriguing when F&FW regular co-host Dave Briggs welcomed Aly’s fill-in on Saturday. As the second hour of the show started, Dave declared, “Good to have Molly Line in for Alisyn who we understand may be back in the near future at some point”: simultaneously, seemingly almost knowingly belying his own words, Dave shook his head sideways continuously.” As Molly chuckled, Dave shrugged his shoulders and threw his hands into the air, adding, “Which we hear. We hear.”

Subsequently, almost aping his co-host’s head gestures but much more subtly and gazing down often to boot, co-host Clayton Morris offered, “Yeah. I said, ‘Aly, where, where have you been? And, we love all of the wonderful folks who have been kind enough to fill in.” Concurring, Dave interjected, “We love Molly,” (as he patted her on the shoulder). Then, rarely looking at his audience and his co-hosts, Clayton continued, “Aly said, ‘I miss you guys.’ So, she might be back next weekend.”

In response, Dave looked at Clayton almost stone-faced as he appeared to try to stifle a smile. Meanwhile, Molly beamed broadly and arched her eyebrows as if in disbelief. Seemingly less than sincere, Clayton concluded, “Aly, let us know.”

Reader, rather than Aly, perchance, it will be FNC Programming SVP Bill Shine who will let Clayton and the rest of us know. As the author noted last week, Molly seemed to have given F&FW rival guest co-host Juliet Huddy the upper hand when she missed a golden opportunity on F&FW Mother’s Day edition to connect with her viewers by sharing more of her less than “Perfectly Precious” self with them. Perhaps, Shine decided to give her a second chance to do just that this past weekend by pulling Juliet at the last moment in favor of Molly.

Of course, Shine’s new F&FW filly may well have to go around the track quite a few more times if she is ever to gain the sure legs of his proven thoroughbred Aly. Or, Juliet.

Update: Juliet explains no-show? About twenty minutes after Carpe Diem posted this article, supra, Juliet Tweeted, “Threw my back out during spring cleaning – thank goodness for a massage therapist who deserves Nobel prize for saving my sanity.”

Molly Line: Too “Perfectly Precious”

May 11, 2011

To be Alisyn Camerota’s replacement? Gollum’s gold and Juliet’s gain. Green Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Molly Line missed a golden opportunity Sunday to introduce herself to viewers as co-anchor Alisyn Camerota extended her month-long hiatus from FNC’s top-rated weekend morning show. Apparently, with little thought to the fact that fan fave Juliet Huddy appears to be vying to reclaim her former F&FW center seat, the Boston beauty–and her mom–seemed to inanely squander a choice chance to connect with the F&FW viewers but, rather, riantly reveled in her relative obscurity.

As F&FW showcased the individual co-hosts and their respective mothers Sunday, Molly and her mom were first in the queue. When F&FW producers got both Lines on the “telephone line” for a family segment, Molly and her mom Pat began to exchange the usual pleasantries.* Hoping to spice up the conversation a soupcon, co-anchor Clayton Morris interjected, “Pat, we need a little story about Molly here: can you share….some skinny on your daughter? Any embarrassing stories from childhood?”

Laughing, Ms. Line mused, “Embarrassing stories? Let’s see. ” Feigning fright, Molly exclaimed, “No, no…no, no.” Trying to nudge Ms. Line on despite her daughter’s protests, Clayton inquired, “Alright, here’s embarrassing. What did she get you for Mother’s Day?”

Prosaically, Ms. Line answered that Molly’s presents were plants and began to elaborate. Interjecting impatiently, co-anchor Dave Briggs pleaded, “But, but Mom’s changing the subject. Pat [Line], we know you have a story.”

Interrupting, Molly remarked, “No, I liked Mom changing the subject. That was brilliant! Mom’s a smart lady. Mom’s a smart lady.”

Shaking his head, Dave asserted, “Pat, we’re not letting you off the hook.” Turning to Molly, he commanded, “Zip it! Zip it!” Then pointing at the camera, Dave declared, “Pat, tell us something. We don’t get to anchor with this young lady every weekend.”

Chuckling, Ms. Line replied, “No, she was [a] perfectly precious child.”

A perfectly precious child. Out of the camera’s view., Clayton derisively responded, “Awww!” Much more appreciative of her mom, Molly replied, “You are brilliant! You’re brilliant. See, she’s on my team. She’s in my corner.” Then, perhaps, speaking for his F&FW audience, Dave aptly exclaimed, “Boo!”

“Boo,” indeed. Molly, your mom is doubtlessly brilliant and in your corner but Clayton and Dave were quite right. You may be a Fox but you need to learn to be more of a Friend, especially, if you ever hope to anchor with them every weekend.

Clayton: My Wife in Bed

May 9, 2011

“Happy Mother’s Day. I love you, Hon!” Yesterday, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris finally shared his wife, Natali Morris nee Del Conte, more fully with his fans. And, she did not seem to mind one whit. In fact, she seemed to revel in their rapt attention–not to mention, his full aegis–at last.

As Fox & Friends Weekend viewers may remember, Natali was rumored to be the gravid illicit lover of a married Clayton slightly over a year ago according to Almost four months later, the CNET TV news anchor (and whilom F&F tech guest) bore their love child: However, Clayton did not acknowledge Natali as his son’s mother even when he proudly heralded baby Miles Benjamin’s arrival with photos and video to the F&FW audience. Subsequently, Clayton wed Natali: Interestingly, he still refrained from mentioning her name on F&FW air even when he showed a photo album of their son which included photos of Natali to his viewers. Nevertheless, on Christmas Day 2010, Clayton began to rectify his omissions by calling Natali “my beloved wife Natali” when he showed a holiday photo of himself and his new family to F&FW fans.

On Mother’s Day, Clayton went one step further and literally embraced Natali as his new spouse on air in what appeared to be a made-for-TV moment. Seemingly, eager to receive this on-air imprimatur, Natali took the “Red Eye” to get to the FNC studio on time according to Clayton’s co-anchor Dave Briggs.* Furthermore, apparently, pumped producers thrice promoted the breakfast-in-bed block with preview shots of the sexy young mom and her adorable child together.

During the segment itself, Clayton served a chef-confected breakfast of soft-crab omelet and mom mimosa to Natali who was sitting in the bed and cradling their baby Miles. As Clayton did, he lovingly took their son into his arms and then kissed Natali on the top of her head, saying, “Happy Mother’s Day. I love you, Hon!” Turning to Clayton with a smile, Natali grabbed his waist and responded, “Thank you very much!”

As the segment ended, Clayton jested, “See, now, this gets me off the hook…from having to do anything else the rest of the day.” As his co-hosts Dave and Molly Line took his toss, they laughed at that notion. Looking down at Natali, Clayton comically queried, “Does it?”  Arching her eyebrows and shrugging her shoulders, a grinning Natali gamely proclaimed, “Sure!”

As the Virginia Slims ads said, “Natali, you’ve come a long way, baby!” Or, rather, was it Clayton?

Huddy Finds Her Half-Brother

May 1, 2011

Juliet: “Hi, Brent!” Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Juliet Huddy revealed yesterday that she has a half-brother that she had not known about for thirty-seven years. While the FNC anchor has often proudly spoken of her brother John Huddy, an Emmy-winning Fox 5 News/WNYW-TV (New York) reporter on Fox & Friends Weekend, she has never mentioned another brother to the best of the author’s knowledge. However, yesterday, she finally did.

Subbing for Alisyn Camerota on F&FW, Juliet interviewed two half-brothers who serendipitously discovered each other after thirty-eight years apart. When she began to conclude the discussion, Juliet disclosed, “I, I was in the same situation. I found out that I have a half-brother I never new about after, ironically, about thirty-seven years.” Revealingly, she continued, “And, it’s a wonderful thing to be able to keep in touch: you’ll be able to find out so many things that you have in common in so many small areas. It will be wonderful for you to go through this whole adventure.”

After one of the interviewed brothers congratulated her, a beaming Juliet replied, “Thank you. Thank you very much.” Looking into the camera and waving, she exclaimed, “Hi, Brent!”

Juliet and her “little” brother, John John (as she affectionately calls him), are the children of television producer/author John Huddy and the beautiful dancer/actress Erica Huddy. Their half-brother, Brent is likely the son of John Huddy and another relationship because Erica Huddy only lists John and Juliet as her children on her Facebook page.

Juliet, may your “new adventure” continue to be wonderful. Maybe, with Brent’s help, John John can keep you in line. Not!
