“Forgotten” Valentine Anna Returns

February 23, 2014

“Back from the Land Down Under!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman returned from a Valentine’s Day vacation in Oz to the curvy couch yesterday after a two-week absence. As the show opened, co-host Tucker Carlson declared, “The long national nightmare is over: Anna Kooiman back on the curvy couch!” Pumping her fist, Anna exclaimed, “Back from the Land Down Under!”

Subsequently, the rested, bronzed blond beauty regaled Tucker and fellow co-anchor Clayton Morris with tales of her “24-hour” plane trip; her seeing bilbies, wallabies, and koala bears; and her discovering the fascinating fact the koala bears get “stoned” by eating eucalyptus leaves. Summing up her trip, she said, “It was cool!”

For F&FW fans of the toned towhead, it was assuredly a relief to see their Anna again. Over the last two weeks, F&F offered them nary a clue as to where she was. In fact, last week, Ann’s name was not even uttered as Juliet Huddy co-hosted F&FW both Saturday and Sunday: To make matters more confusing, Juliet did not acknowledge that she was filling in for Anna and introduced herself on the the hour both shows, simply saying, “I’m Juliet Huddy.”

However, during her absence, Anna let her Twitter followers and her Facebook friends in on her “secret” location. She happily shared photos of her frolicking on a rocky shore near Sydney, posing with a sleepy koala bear, and sipping champagne in ecstasy (with the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge reflecting from her sunglasses). Anna looked as if she were almost in heaven.

Welcome back, Anna!

Bradley Cooper Mutes Breathless Christine Romans?

February 16, 2014

John Berman: “Worth checking the Internet for that.” Early Start co-anchor John Berman brought back old embarrassing memories for his new co-host Christine Romans Wednesday.

Reading a headline news story on the President’s State Dinner for the French head of state, John noted that Oscar-nominated hunk Bradley Cooper was in attendance: Puckishly, he queried, “Have you [Christine] met Bradley Cooper?”*

Coolly, Christine answered, “He was right here on this program one day. Yes, indeed!”

Mischievously, he riposted, “Interesting. Worth checking the Internet for that moment.”

Blushing, a chagrined Christine pleaded, “Don’t!”

But, do. (Link here.)

[Author’s aside: Former American Morning co-anchor Kiran Chetry likens their shared interview of Cooper to “two schoolgirls in a bar.”]

Jerrick Plays Priapus With Huddy

February 16, 2014

Reddening, Juliet swats his faux phallus away. Former Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy were back in action on the curvy couch this morning. Filling in for Tucker Carlson and Anna Kooiman, respectively, the concupiscent couple were back to their usual naughty selves as they joined F&F regular anchor Clayton Morris anew for a Philly sandwich.

However, today, Mike took his priapic play with Juliet up a notch when he probably thought that the two of them were safely off camera. During an 111th American International Toy Fair toy preview segment, their guest displayed a retro toy called the “Bop Bag,” (a vertical, phallic-shaped punching bag that bounces back when pounded).* Bawdily, Mike intoned, “That’s what I call Juliet, ‘bop bag'” as Juliet chuckled. When the segment came to an end, Juliet teased upcoming stories as accompanying clips aired.

As Juliet’s intros ended, Mike briefly positioned the bop bag as if it were his erect phallus pointed salaciously toward Juliet’s kisser. Blushing, she batted her bad boy’s toy aside with the back of her hand, exclaiming, “Michael!” Shaking her head with a smile, she simply turned and wisely walked away.

[Author’s aside: Apt Priapus Mike flashback? In September 2007, HobokenNow.com noted, “Mike will jump at every opportunity to make a double entendre, while Juliet will sometimes squirm a little–or even visibly blush–when things get racy.” This was perfectly illustrated after the taping of their show [The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet], when Juliet said the word ‘p*nis’ on the air for the first time. ‘I never thought we’d get that “p*nis” out of her mouth,’ Mike quipped after the show.”]

Huddy Explains Her O’Reilly Absence

February 14, 2014

“I scared him.” Apparently, Fox 5 Good Day NY anchor Juliet Huddy‘s “hell” has frozen over. Less than four months after she was given a new segment entitled “Mad as Hell” on the O’Reilly Factor by its eponymous host Bill O’Reilly, Juliet explained why she is not on the Factor any more. When a fan asked her that very question (January 29), she Tweeted, “I scared him. :-)”

As Carpe Diem readers may well remember, Juliet was initially featured in O’Reilly’s Wednesday weekly “Did You See That?” After Heather Nauert replaced her on October 3 (2013) in that segment, Juliet was given a new weekly Thursday one, “Mad as Hell,” the very next day (Thursday): And, the following day (Friday), O’Reilly read a letter from one of Juliet’s fans saying, “Mr. O, if you discontinue the ‘Mad as Hell’ segment, I will be mad as hell.” Perhaps, tellingly, O’Reilly answered, “Alright, we’re gonna keep it…at least, for the time being.”

Subsequently, the author noted O’Reilly’s peculiar response: In his Carpe Diem‘s “Huddy’s ‘Hell’: To Freeze Over?,” the author remarked, “In [Roger] Ailes’ world…that ‘time being’ [can be] rather tenous–at best.” Unfortunately, for Juliet, that observation appears all too apt.

New Day Censors Sexy SI Swimsuit Models–Butt

February 14, 2014

Fox & Friends celebrates the bevy of beauties’ derrieres. Sex: Yes, it sells. And, that may be one of the reasons that priggish CNN’s morning show New Day gets it head handed to it on a silver platter on a daily basis by its saucy FNC counterpart Fox & Friends.

Today, New Day (a la the 1956 “Ed Sullivan Show” of Elvis’ gyrating hips) bowdlerized the bottom half of the cover of the Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Issue cover which featured three bathing beauties flaunting their assets. In its sole coverage of the SI cover, ND entertainment correspondent Nischelle Turner stood next to a big screen (featuring the fetching faces and topless tops of Lily Aldridge, Nina Agdal, and Chrissy Teigen from the back), reporting, “Now this is the first time since 1994 that three women have been on the cover.”*

Noting the obvious omission, i.e., ND co-host Kate Bouldan complained, “I don’t see swimsuits, though….You could actually show their derrieres!” Expressing her disappointment at New Day‘s censorship, she explained, “One of my girlfriends–her swimsuit line is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue“: When Nischelle responded, “Oh, so they’ve got your friend’s bottoms on?,” Kate excitedly exclaimed, “Yes! “Basta! So proud! It’s such a big moment!”

In pellucid contradistinction from CNN, F&F prominently and proudly featured the uncensored scantily clad ladies: To wit, it proudly proclaimed “Bottoms up” of the 2014 SI Swimsuit cover girls. At the start of each hour, the cover was shown as F&F co-hosts touted SI‘s answer to the winter blues: In tandem, respectively, news reader Heather Nauert would end her top-of-the-hour headline stories with the SI Swimsuit cover displayed on F&F full screen as she invited guys to “take a long look” at “those booties” that “everybody wants to see.”**

Except for Jeff Zucker‘s censors on CNN.

Aly Rocking & Ringless Again?

February 4, 2014

Camerota’s new “camera.” Today, America’s News HQ anchor Alisyn Camerota got a new room with her hunky single counterpart, Bill Hemmer. Rocking without her marital rock this afternoon (a la F&F 06/10/11), the sexy siren brought her beauty and brains to bear as she and Bill proclaimed the news again from the “broom closet” (because of “technical issues”).* Safely ensconced behind a desk that blocked a view of her svelte shape, the Bristol Bay babe brought very little to bare–but she did flash her naked bronzed ring finger.

Yesterday’s “Lovergirl” Aly: “Working [it] for the weekend”? Her F&FW fans can only hope.

Oops! Naughty Janice Dean Says “Sl*t”

February 4, 2014

Happening Now! FNC meteorologist Janice Dean heated things up today as she forecast the latest winter storm on FNC’s HN. In her second hour debut, Janice declared that her hubby was staying home tomorrow with their sons and that she was “staying here…[in]…the sleeping bag set up: Setting up, perchance, a Freudian slip, she declared, “We could get another storm Sunday into Monday for the Northeast, and this could be a big one, Jenna.”*

Smiling, Janice continued, “So, yes, sl*t”: Reddening at her salacious faux pas, she haltingly chuckled, “Set up the sleeping bags and a lot of mothers and fathers are going ‘when are my children going back to school.'” Even though neither Janice nor HN co-hosts Jenna Lee and Jon Scott said nary a thing about her racy gaffe at the conclusion of Janice’s report, Jon did randomly remark, “I never like to see all that pink on those maps.”

Oops! FNC’s sexy Dancing Machine did it again!
