Abby’s View Table: Whose F&FW Curvy Couch?

Now she’s gone. Who will rule the F&FW curvy couch? Yes, sadly, today, the sexy short-lived former queen of Fox & Friends Weekend, good girl Abby Huntsman Tweeted, “It’s official! Thrilled to return to where it all began for me …never dreamt back then I’d one day join @theviewabc table.” Now, the question is what lovely royal will be given Abby’s crown and scepter to reign on the F&FW curvy couch after her untimely abdication.

Probably, the hottest F&FW co-host was the comely Kiran Chetry; the naughtiest, perhaps, was Juliet Huddy (who always smilingly blushed when the blonde heard her show intro’d by Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy, saying, “Yes, the drapes match the rug”), and the strangest transmogrifying one, Alisyn Camerota, a sexy, smart gal who later “woke” to another whole new world–CNN.

Regrettably, the sexy, sharp Puerto Rican Five siren Kimberly Guilfoyle left FNC under some less than flattering accusations. And, strangely, the leggy lovely Nicole Petallides left her FBN:AM fans without an explanation but, happily, she still graces the screen as a reporter for FBN. Molly Line seems to be a possibility since she seems to be getting more air time on FNC on shows such as Outnumbered as of late: Formerly, she oft guest co-hosted F&FW when the suits were seemingly trying to transition Aly out–without success.

So, who should be the next F&FW queen? If it were up to the author, FNC would bring back Nepalese goddess Kiran Chetry: The former F&FW & America Morning co-host has the killer looks, personality, and smarts to arouse her F&FW fans to a fabulous morning. (She’s done her time, and she has been loyal to the network and her fans.) If not Kiran, Nicole would be awesome on the curvy couch as the brainy, famously leggy Greek beauty who will waken F&FW viewers with a jolt of pulchritudinous femme fatale java.

Nevertheless, the author believes that the odds favor Rachel Campos-Duffy who has begun to occupy the center seat lately on both Fox & Friends and Fox & Friends Weekend. She’s a lovely lady who came to the public’s consciousness as a cast member on MTV’s The Real World: San Francisco before becoming a regular guest co-host of The View–and she’s the wife of Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI). Like former F&FW co-anchor Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Survivor contestant (the predecessor of Anna Kooiman, who was the predecessor of Abby), Rachel starred in her own reality series and she has political connections like Abby Huntsman (whose dad is the current Ambassador to Russia).

Stay tuned.

    […] With Abby gone, who will rule the F&F Weekend […]

    I hinted in an earlier post that IMHO, much of the current female anchors and reporters (i.e. Line, Fisher, Smith, Gabriele, Ibanez, Prann, Banderas, Mele) would see moving to a weekend show regularly as either a step down or time away from families. Others would see it as an inconvenience to weekend plans.

    I like Rachel (and I appreciate her candor on touchy issues), but I don’t think she wants to continue spending weekends in the Big Apple. Others I mentioned above live outside of the Big Apple, and may not want to move.

    Katie Pavlich filled in two days this week for Ainsley Earhardt, which may have been an unofficial audition. IMHO, I thought she did okay. Maybe Fox News will do a few more of these unofficial auditions until they get a permanent host. Until then, the rotating hosts will probably be done. Ratings will also be an indicator.

    RCD is just awful. With her and Pete Hegseth there are two Republican operatives on weekends. Must rather see someone like Heather Childers, Molly Line or Lea Gabrielle in that role.

    Not Juliet, I would stop watching. Kiran, yes, have missed her for a long time.

  5. David Says:

    Jedediah Bila is hosting this weekend. Glad to see her back at Fox (didn’t know she was on The Five the last few months – hopefully she got a better deal than what she had before – and she resides in New York). She seems to be fitting in well with her co hosts.

    I hope the ratings and reviews were good for Jedediah’s audition. Last fall when Abby was on leave, Eboni Williams hosted one weekend, which from what I remembered were arguments and attacks with her co hosts.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    They did a getting to know you segment on Jedediah, as if she will be the permanent host going forward. This wasn’t a name mentioned earlier. I haven’t seen her before. Guess Rachel is inactive again?

  7. David Says:

    Jedediah Bila has been a Fox News contributor over the years. I always liked her delivery and views. Like Laura Ingraham, she is not afraid to speak her mind and Express herself. (She reminds me a little bit of Tucker Carlson.) I have no idea why she quit Fox a few years back and went to another place. I hope she is asked back to host, and she already resides in the New York vicinity.

    I like Rachel Campos Duffy, but I don’t think she wants a “permanent weekend host” job. She flies in from the midwest to do the show, and has a family as well as the LIBRE initiative and other work.

    Jedediah Bila might be able to have a “weekend host job” and have the other days off to do other things. That could work for her.
    Other anchors that do weekend anchoring often have to put in three days a week as a reporter. Either Monday and Tuesday or Thursday or Friday are there days off. That’s the news business- which is a job.

  8. BL Says:

    Please, Please no Anna Kooliman, Katie yes Jede yes, Karen Yes. By the way tell Pete and Ed their making a real fool out of themselves this week. Oops she just set Pete straight. And to think she will be back tomorrow. Yikes Goodbye Fox&friends weekends

  9. David Says:

    I believe Anna Kooiman is designated a Fox News contributor, even though she has moved to be in her husband’s homeland. She does a show for a network in Australia, and she has occasionally covered some world news for Fox.
    That said, Anna is on the payroll, but I doubt she and her husband (along with her baby and her dog) are moving back to NYC.

    Anna may have come to the USA for a few weeks to check on her family, who may have been affected by Hurricane Florence (Anna is from near Wilmington, NC). I think Anna is filling in Monday and Tuesday (24th and 25th) for Ainsley. Ainsley may be out for vacation (or speaking engagements related to her book).

    David, you should be pleased: Jedediah is co-hosting FNC’s The Five this very moment.
