But, still “working for the [F&F] weekend”? After an unexplained two-month hiatus from her weekend show Fox & Friends Weekend, co-host Alisyn Camerota appeared today as guest co-anchor on F&F, the weekday version (to the hopeful elation of her concerned fans). As the show started to strains of Loverboy’s 1981 hit “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” (with the cam showing the still-empty “All-American Summer” stage), Aly could be heard saying, “We’re rocking out. This is the perfect song for a Friday, obviously: It’s the battle cry for the weekend!” Indeed, for both Aly and her acolytes today.
When the F&F cameraperson panned to the curvy couch to start the show, there sat Aly betwixt co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. Looking as alluring as ever–albeit more demurely attired in a crew-necked, sleeveless, over-the-knee royal blue dress, Aly held both her hands high atop her knee initially. However, suddenly, she subtly shifted her left hand lower in her lap almost subconsciously–as if she had something to hide.
Perhaps, for a moment, she had forgotten the lesson that she should have learned from Clayton about two years ago that such attempts are usually futile. Nevertheless, as F&F progressed, Aly seemed to lose her shyness and give her left hand freer and freer rein. Before the end of the show, F&F’s Lady Godiva was ready to show her “Peeping Toms” that she was unashamed and to offer them full views of her nakedness–at least, that of her ring finger. Stripped of her erstwhile ever-present wedding band, Aly was ready to be the bohemian free spirit of the ’80’s again by the conclusion of F&F.
As F&F segued from the main part of the show to its “All-American Summer” concert, Aly donned a “hep” headband and a matching wristband.* When Loverboy later took the stage and began to perform their raucous anthem, “Working for the Weekend” for Aly, her fellow F&F co-hosts, and the audience, Brian playfully placed Aly onto his right shoulder.*** Then, as Steve dutifully provided his shoulder as well to Aly, the real queen of F&F started to sway sensually atop her boys with a sexily hiked skirt and a saucy, sassy smile.
Subsequently, in the final segment, the three co-hosts anticlimactically discussed their previous revelry on stage with their audience. Steve explained, “Us [sic] hoisting Alisyn up on our shoulders was Brian’s idea….Suddenly, he’s going, ‘Let’s break apart and see what happens.” Grinning, Brian replied, “No, I said, ‘Let’s get her [inaudible] and bounce her around a little.” As Aly shook her head and smiled, Loverboy lead singer Mike Reno leaned in toward Aly and amorously remarked, “It looked good to me!”***
No doubt, Mike. And, as for “everybody’s [still] working for the weekend”? Exactly, especially, if it includes Aly anew–with or without her ring.
