Aly Oops: Trump’s “Book of Corinthians” Blooper

January 19, 2016

The Donald isn’t the only one stumbling over “Second Corinthians.” On New Day this morning, co-host Alisyn Camerota had a faux pas herself re II Corinthians as she smiled at GOP front runner Donald J. Trump’s false step at Liberty University yesterday (when he called Second Corinthians “Two Corinthians” to the merriment of the devout students). Reading the headline news as the third hour began, Aly declared, “Donald Trump looking for some redemption after a slip on the campaign trail: He stumbled while citing the Book of Corinthians at the evangelical Liberty University and now he is seeking to right the ship, courting more religious voters at three events in Iowa.”

Ironically, as Aly tweaked The Donald for his lack of Biblical knowledge, she seemed to display her own as she referred to “the Book of Corinthians” for, at least, the second time this morning. As most seasoned evangelicals should know, “the Book of Corinthians” is nonexistent: Rather, there are two distinct books, i.e., First Corinthians and Second Corinthians. In all fairness to Aly, she was probably just reading the teleprompter: However, if she were well versed in the Scripture (pardon the pun), she probably should have noticed her mistake the second time. The irony of Aly’s miscitation was rather amusing.

Nevertheless, if evangelical Christians are true to form, the lovely Aly and the dapper Donald will probably be forgiven posthaste. As to referring to Corinthians in the future–or, at least, their leather–perhaps, that should be left to the inimitable Ricardo Montalban.

Anna: “I’m Happy for the Opportunity”

January 18, 2016

Kilmeade: “You’re doing great!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman does double duty and the Fox & Friends weekday boys seem to like it. Today, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy opened the show, remarking, “Brian [Kilmeade], you know, you and I took off over the weekend, and she’s still here!”

Grinning Puckishly as ever, Brian replied, “It’s unbelievable!”

Smiling sweetly, Steve replied, “Anna has worked about twenty straight days. God bless her!”

Flattered, a chagrined Anna chuckled, “No, it hasn’t been that long! I’m happy for the opportunity! Thanks for having me on the couch!”

Aptly, Brian answered, “Yeah, you’re doing great!”

Indeed, Anna has been doing great as the “girl in the middle” on the F&F curvy couch as of late: And, she seems to be ready to take the reins without any real competition.

But, if Anna does take Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s erstwhile spot on the F&F curvy couch, the obvious question is who will replace the vivacious blond beauty in the F&FW center seat.

Since Anna is reigning on both the F&F and F&FW curvy couches rather than having subs, e.g., Nicole Petallides, Kimberly Guilfoyle, etc., help her out, one begins to wonder if the FNC suits are waiting for F&F First co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt to return from maternity leave and to retake her old spot on the F&F Weekend curvy couch to ease the transition for Anna from the weekend to the weekday.

Between opinionated alpha male Tucker Carlson and peevish beta male Clayton Morris, Ainsley just might be that next sweet Southern belle that can continue to make F&FW work.

Elisabeth Out: Anna In?

January 3, 2016

Fox & Friends: A new year, a new blond beauty? Former Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has left the F&F building: Will F&F Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman take her place on the curvy couch? She certainly seems to have the edge. On the day after Elisabeth abdicated her F&F throne tearfully, Anna seized the queen’s center seat joyfully. Tomorrow, on the real first F&F day of year (after the holidays), Anna will reign anew on the curvy couch between Fox & Friends kings, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.

Whether Anna will be officially crowned the new queen of the Fox & Friends curvy couch remains to be seen. If she is so elevated, her vacancy on the F&FW throne may well be filled with blasts from the past. Just this weekend, former frequent F&FW guest co-anchor Molly Line made a rare appearance Saturday and erstwhile F&FW co-host Juliet Huddy seemed likewise to audition Sunday. However, whilom F&FW co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt would seem to be best positioned to regain her place on the F&FW curvy couch from her perch on the Fox & Friends First leg chairs after she returns from maternity leave.

Let the F&F fun begin!

Huddy: “Good Riddance”

January 2, 2016

Juliet: “I got a good one now!” Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Juliet Huddy returned to the curvy couch two days after Christmas 2015 with thoughts of one of her naughty boys–and her nice Mr. Wright [pic].

Introducing a segment subtitled, “Breaking ‘App’: New Apps Will Dump Significant Other for You” (during the holidays), Juliet stammered, “There’s a whole new little caveat to this si, sick holiday thing!”* Turning to Juliet, guest co-anchor Ed Henry chimed in, “You’re not dating the right guys!”

Chuckling, Juliet replied, “Well, I wasn’t, maybe.” Ed riposted, “You should make them pay for dinner.” Giving Ed the Heisman move, Juliet answered, “We don’t want even to go there. Trust me!”

Apparently, reassuring her current hubby, Mr. Wright (Steve), Juliet laughed, “I got a good one now!”

Contrasting her now nice guy with an earlier naughty flame, Juliet queried, “Have you ever been broken up with…through a text or something like that?” When Ed answered, “No!,” Juliet replied, “Well, I have been!”

Concluding the segment, the once slighted Juliet opined, “My theory is [that] if you are broken up with somebody via that way, then good riddance! Good riddance!”

Good news for Mr. Wright this holiday season: He was still on Juliet’s “nice” list!

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 12/27/15 (6:38 a.m. ET).
