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

August 28, 2018

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.

Abby’s Adieu (F&FW): Short & Sweet

August 12, 2018

“Abby, please don’t go, too!” But, sadly, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman did just that in spite of the plea of this Carpe Diem author. With less than two years under her belt as Fox & Friends Weekend co-host, she bade her co-hosts Pete Hegseth and Ed Henry, her crew, and, most importantly, her viewers a fond farewell to reportedly join her good friend Meghan McCain at the table on The View to wage friendly fire with libs Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg.

Yesterday, in the opening segment, Abby exclaimed, “Big news that we will talk about tomorrow! But this is our last weekend together! So, we are going to make the most of this [inaudible].” True to her word, she did just that today. And, it came as no surprise to those who follow cable news (HuffPo link): But, to the viewers who do not, it probably did since Abby sat on the F&FW curvy couch as queen for such a short reign. In the final segment today, F&FW producers gave Abby a fitting farewell tribute (vid via J$P) as they brought in her hubs Jeff and their daughter Isabel Grace to mark this new chapter in her life. The daughter of the current ambassador to Russia and the past ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, Jr., certainly was politically savvy and smart. And, the Utah lovely also had her sexy side–albeit family friendly–a la weekday Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt. She gave her fans a reason to rise in the early morn on the weekend with her cheerful disposition, beauty, and brains.

Gone much too soon, Abby! You will be missed!

 

 

Clayton’s Weird Departure

July 31, 2018

Abby, please don’t go, too! As word spreads that Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman may leave the FNC fold to join her friend Meghan McCain at The View, F&FW fans are welcome to muse about the strange disintegration of a trio of co-hosts that preceded her, i.e., Clayton Morris, Alisyn Camerota, and Dave Briggs. (Yes, the author knows that the lovely now honorary Aussie Anna Kooiman was the lovely F&FW co-anchor that was the bridge between Aly and Abby.)

Of particular interest was Clayton’s bizarre adieu [vid]. Dave left in an emotional farewell in 2012 as the Bean Town sports boy transitioned to NBC Sports (before going to CNN to co-host Early Start with Christine Romans). Alleging legendary FNC honcho Roger Ailes harassed her, lovely Aly left for CNN New Day eventually where she has “woke” according to her book, Amanda Wakes Up. Re Clayton, his departure seemed strange at best: Out of the blue seemingly, he emotionally announced, “I have decided after 18 years in broadcast television – I didn’t think I was going to do this. That today will be my last day in television.” Additionally, he remarked, “”I don’t think you’ll ever see me on television again.”

In an ambiguous assertion, Clayton said that “he would be pursuing a new calling in ’empowering people’ and helping others build wealth through passive income.” Now, Clayton posits, “How to pay off your house within 5 years using these awesome ninja tricks.” Hopefully, it works: But, it sounds as strange as his fascination with UFO’s.

Clayton’s farewell was a bizarre goodbye. Hopefully, Abby will not follow suit. (She’s a keeper–or should be!)

Abby & Pete: Obama Can Run Again! :-)

June 4, 2018

Did Abby Huntsman embarrass her dad? In one of the craziest segments ever, Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Pete Hegseth, and Ed Henry seemed utterly oblivious to the 22nd Amendment. It was utterly insane.

In the opening segment of the third hour, Abby remarked, “There’s a new book [“The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House”] that came out this week, Ben Rhodes who…was on his national security team and he talks about Barack Obama and how he felt about the election and…right after Trump won.” Interjecting, Pete read an excerpt of the book (on screen) which read, “‘What if we were wrong? Maybe we pushed too far,’ Mr. Obama said, ‘Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe. Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early,’ he said.”

Later, Abby remarked, “[Former President Obama]…said ‘[T]en or twenty years too early, that the country wasn’t ready for him. Pete and I were talking about this in the commercial break. He could still run again! Right? Ten years after he left office.” Pete chimed in, “You’re just two consecutive terms: You could take one off and come back.” Abby responded, “He could take on Donald Trump in 2020.” Instinctively, Ed interjected, “Isn’t that something that would be challenged though?”

Wrong, Abby. And, wrong, Pete. And, at least, you had a clue, Ed.

Sad. It was as if none of the three had heard of the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which reads, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this Article was proposed by Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Such ignorance–in the true sense of the term–makes any informed viewer cringe. Great F&FW team: But, up your game!

[Author’s aside: Had the three been in Russia and talking about Putin they would have been correct.]

 

Things I Shouldn’t Say

March 27, 2018

Aly’s woke wrong, and Ainsley’s Ainsley. In the old days of Fox & Friends, Mancow was mimicking oral sex with E. D. Hill with his second and third fingers in a vee and lapping it up with his tongue with a naughty smile as a blushing E. D. laughed it off. Apparently, they had been lovers–and, viewers were invited to a peep show of sorts of days gone bye.

Now, it’s different. New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota has gone from Roger Ailes smart, sassy, sexy lovely to Jeff Zucker’s snarky, “rolling eye” gal when it comes to her conservative guests. But, sometimes, she’s fair–even though the viewer knows that Zucker is watching and having his way way too often.

As to Fox and Friends co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt, she plays her role a la Abby Huntsman of Fox & Friends Weekend. Both are beautiful, brainy gals bringing it to the center seat on the curvy couch. They are both sexy as all get-out: But, they are also rather religious. So wrap your brain around that–if you can.

As a synopsis, Aly is still sexy but she is Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct: You never know if she’ll kill you with her looks or her CNN ice pick. As to Ainsley (and Abby), they both appear very inviting but one wonders if they really in truly are that sweet.

Abby: Back in the Saddle Again!

March 19, 2018

Huntsman: “This weekend. [Nervous grimace emoji].” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman announced that she would be back on the curvy couch this weekend. After the birth of her beautiful daughter Isabel Grace [photo] in late November, Abby seems somewhat nervous about her return after maternity leave.

When a fan asked today (March 19), “When r u coming back to work? We miss you, she replied, “”This weekend. [Nervous grimace emoji].”

No worries, Abby! Your fans eagerly await your return–or, as Aerosmith, might say “Back in the Saddle Again”! [Vid].

Shep Preempts Rick (and F&FW)!

September 10, 2017

Seriously? Preempting FNC’s chief meteorologist Rick Reichmuth (and Fox & Friends Weekend) this Sunday morn mid-show for Shepard Smith seems like one of the stupidest programming decisions that FNC has made. Such disrespect to Rick, the F&FW co-hosts, and their fans is almost unforgivable. Rick and the F&FW crew were doing a much better job than this interloper and his crew are doing. Get a grip, Fox News!

[Update: At least, Rick reappeared on “Shep’s show” at 8:38 a.m. ET.]

 

Abby, Pete, & Clayton: F&FW’s “New Team”?

June 26, 2017

Clayton: “It’s great to have the band back together again.” Yes, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host returned Sunday as he had said: And F&FW seemed bound and determined to asservate that Clayton still held his seat on the curvy couch after Carpe Diem‘s article “Piro: This is My First Day.” In fact, co-anchors Abby Huntsman, Pete Hegseth, and Clayton Morris himself appeared to emphasize that, yes, Clayton–and Pete–were on F&FW‘s new team with its new queen Abby: Ergo, Todd Piro who declared “This is my first day” and introduced himself to F&F fans and F&F co-hosts with a June 14th segment (including bio vid) entitled ““Welcome to the F&F Family, Todd Piro!” was not replacing Clayton–at least, not yet.

As the opening began, Abby remarked, “And, welcome back to the to both of you! It’s so fun to have you two back!” In reply, Clayton declared, “It’s great to have the band back together again.” In response, Abby exclaimed, “It is!” Chiming in, Pete animatedly added, “Indeed! In the new studio, first time in the new studio, too.”

Turning to Abby, Clayton said, “And, you had that big announcement.” [Abby and hubs Jeff Livingston’s June 17 proclamation that she is preggers for the first time–a girl due around Thanksgiving (vid)]. Abby playfully retorted, “That you missed, Clayton!” Slightly defensively, Clayton answered, “I already knew it: I was privy to that.” Then, he jested, “And, I’ve gained an extra two pounds.”

Laughing and pointing to Clayton, Abby joked, “We’re growing together, Pete!”

Putting an exclamation on the apparent point of the opening segment, Pete responded, “We’re all growing together….And, this show is growing together as well.”

Welcome aboard, Pete! It’s about time FNC says it–officially!

[Author’s aside: As to Pete’s inclusion, supra, nota bene, FNC as it is wont to do with its new F&FW co-anchors still has not announced Pete Hegseth’s ascension to the F&FW curvy couch from contributor status.]

 

 

 

 

Piro: “This Is My First Day”

June 18, 2017

Morris: “See you next [sic] Sunday on the show.” Fox & Friends fans seemed a bit confused yesterday and today as to whether new hire Todd Piro, an erstwhile NBC Connecticut host was replacing Clayton Morris on Fox & Friends Weekend. Wednesday, Todd was welcomed to the Fox & Friends family as its “newest member” by F&F co-anchors, Steve Doocy, Abby Huntsman, and Brian Kilmeade.

In the segment, supra, entitled, “Welcome to the F&F Family, Todd Piro!, Todd introduced himself with a video showing him revisiting his hometown of Verona, New Jersey; visiting a life-long friend (from kindergarten); touring his high school where he played in the VHS Maroon and White marching band; and presiding over a family dinner where his mom said, “You always liked an audience” and his lovely, spunky wife saucily added, “I think she’s politely saying, ‘You like attention.'”

Strangely, no one explained what Todd’s new role would be: Ergo, it was only natural that F&F fans would wonder whose role he may be taking. Friday, he did his first diner interview at the Cozy Corner in Miami Springs, Florida, for F&F: Afterwards, new newsreader Philly lovely, adventure-seeking Jillian Mele (fun F&F intro vid) who recently replaced Heather Nauert (now State Department spokesperson) gushed: “I’m so excited for him! He got here about a week after I did.” Saturday and Sunday, Todd guest hosted on Fox & Friends Weekend, causing viewers to wonder if Clayton was leaving the show: Saturday it was mentioned several times that Todd was filling in for Clayton at but on Sunday it was not.

So, it is not surprising that F&F and F&FW fans want to know who Todd will be replacing–or if he is merely a new addition. Naturally, one might think that Todd might be the latest co-host of F&FW replacing Clayton to completely clean the slate of the old team consisting of the beloved three-time co-host Alisyn Camerota, fun family guy Dave Briggs, and tech geek Clayton to start anew with Abby as the queen of the weekend curvy couch with former VA candidate Pete Hegseth and the new guy Todd as her “bookend” guys.

For F&FW fans who happen to follow Clayton on Twitter, on Saturday, he Tweeted, “Off to Reheboth Beach/Bethany Beach Delaware for the week. See ya next Sunday on the show.”

Re Clayton’s return next Sunday, it is likely. But, nota bene, sometimes, F&FW vacations seem to be an adumbration of the future.

 

Pete: F&FW “Co-host”

May 8, 2017

Hegseth in the Middle! Fox & Friends Weekend “host” Pete Hegseth has apparently arrived as the successor to Tucker Carlson. Sunday, Pete was the centerpiece of “‘Sweet’ Surprise: Custom Chocolate with F&F [sic] Hosts’ Faces.”

In their usual promo segment with “Money HoneyMaria Bartiromo who follows them with her own show, co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Clayton Morris displayed a box of chocolates with the faces respectively of Abby on the left on a chocolate, of Pete seemingly strategically placed in the middle on another, and of Clayton on a right one. As the camera featured the Forest Gump-like delights, Abby remarked, “They are so wonderful, and they brought up our personalized chocolate [inaudible]: You can see there Clayton, Pete, and myself.” Aptly, Pete replied, “You should be in the middle though!”

The die seems to have been cast: When one goes to Fox News Insider re Fox & Friends Weekend (“About”), it reads “Join Abby Huntsman, Clayton Morris and Pete Hegseth.” On F&FW‘s Twitter site, the latest Tweet (by Abby on May 5th) reads, “It’s this crew all weekend. Come spend your morning with us!! @fox&friends 6-10am ET @PeteHegseth @ClaytonMorris.”

Oddly, or simply in a dilatory fashion, Fox & Friends’ website names both Abby and Clayton as co-hosts but not Pete. Even though Pete himself stills lists himself simply as a “@FoxNew contributor,” F&FW producers indicated that he was now a co-anchor as it presented the three “co-hosts” Twitter addresses on the hour both Saturday and Sunday and presented them as the trio that reigned from the curvy couch without a hint that Pete was a fill-in.

A la Tucker Carlson, it seems that F&FW simply wants to slip in the latest anchor with little notice to its fans. A mite over a month ago, this Carpe Diem author remarked, “Perhaps, it is a mite premature, Pete: But, welcome aboard the F&FW ship!” Now, he says welcome aboard, Pete: You deserve your seat on the curvy couch.

Pete: Tucker’s Heir?

March 26, 2017

Bringing gravitas back! Strangely, Fox & Friends Weekend “co-host” Pete Hegseth is still listed as a contributor for Fox News Channel (FNC) in his FNC bio and on his Twitter page.  But, he appears to be the unannounced co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend a la his apparent predecessor Tucker Carlson and his seeming co-host Abby Huntsman. Perhaps, the F&FW suits have learned from the time they awkwardly replaced Fox & Friends co-anchors Page Hopkins, Kelly Wright, and Greg Kelly with Ainsley Earhardt, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris without notice to F&FW fans.

Abby and Ainsley’s loose lips? Friday, Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley sat between guest co-hosts Pete and Clayton on the curvy couch and Abby Huntsman was the newsreader. Before Abby read the headlines at the top of the seven o’clock hour (ET), she pointed to Pete, Clayton, and Ainsley, declaring, “My weekend crew, Ainsley! You’re sitting right…[inaudible]….I love it!” Even though she was the queen of the F&F curvy couch, Ainsley sweetly cooed, “I know! I love being a part of you all! Thank you for letting me do this!”

On Fox & Friends Weekend (Saturday) and today, Pete’s ascendancy to F&FW co-anchor seemed crystal clear. Yesterday, at the top of each hour, the names and Twitter addresses of Pete, Abby, and Clayton were displayed as chyrons at the bottom of the screen underneath them: For the doubting Thomases at the top of the second hour, Clayton seemed to adduce evidence to Pete’s apparent new position, saying, “Pete, Abby, and Clayton in the house for you.” On F&FW today, the chyrons of the names and Twitter addresses of Pete, Abby, and Clayton were back at the top of each hour.

Perhaps, it is a mite premature, Pete: But, welcome aboard the F&FW ship! Your first mate Abby is a young smart beauty who is heir to her father’s political acumen and Clayton is the entertaining class clown who loves UFO’s, comic book cines, and the latest in tech products: And, you bring Tucker’s gravitas to the mix with your Princeton and Harvard education; much more importantly, your service to the nation; and your dedication to the nation’s vets.

For Pete’s sake, Pete, do yourself and your F&FW fans proud! Break a leg!

 

 

 

Sweet Abby: “Mean Girl”?

December 27, 2016

On Christmas Day, new Fox & Friends co-host Abby Huntsman earned her “lump of coal.” Yes, believe it or not, the incredibly gorgeous and usually very sweet and smart Huntsman gal can be a “mean girl.” On Christmas Day, when her family was out feeding the proverbial “least among us” at a homeless shelter a la their family tradition, Abby advocated outing and exploiting one’s relatives who had an alcohol problem.

During a segment entitled “Social Media Faux Pas: What Not to do” that included “post photos of gifts, not family; on your phone at dinner; and post pics of drunk family.”* After concurring with the first two, a smiling Abby disagreed with the third. When guest co-host Peter Doocy said, “Yeah, then photos of drunk relatives,” Abby smiling asserted, “No, those are grea[t]: I think that’s a, I think that’s a yes!” With an evil glint in her eye, Abby added, “Not just photos though! I mean get the video camera out when that happens. Get the memories!”

Joining in Abby’s schadenfreude, F&FW meteorologist Rick Reichmuth responded, “Seriously, I think that is fair game! I do! I think that’s fair game.”

Gesticulating toward her sadly sympathetically concurring colleague, Abby coldly asserted, “If they’re going to be drunk and act that way, you can film them!”

Perhaps, the alcoholics who are hungry on Christmas Day may have second thoughts about stopping by the homeless center in Salt Lake City next year. It is laudable that the Huntsmans feed them on Christmas Day as a family tradition: But, if Abby has her camera out next year, they may want to move on.

Abby, alcoholism is no joke: And, I believe that you know it. Making sport of those who are its victims is mean and uncharitable at best. And, Rick should know it, too.

Hopefully, Abby, you (and Rick) will not deserve your lumps of coal next Christmas. During this season of Christmas and Hanukkah (as always), the hurting need love. And, you and your Fox & Friends fans should embrace them, not scorn them.

*Fox & Friends Weekend (12/25/16) – @ 9:05 a.m. ET.

Abby Leaves F&FF

December 14, 2016

Heather: “We’ll certainly miss you here.” As Fox & Friends First fans awakened to the very first segment of F&FF, co-host Heather Childers announced her veritable co-anchor Abby Huntsman‘s exit from the show to being F&F Weekend co-anchor. At the 5:07 a.m. ET moment, Heather proclaimed, “Well, congratulations are in order this morning: Abby Huntsman named the new co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend.” As Abby alluringly chimed in a protracted “aww” as a montage of her F&FW clips ran, Heather continued, “Of course, Abby, you’ve been here and on the curvy couch for a while now: But, now we are making it official, and you’ll join the team of Fox & Friend Weekend as they celebrate their highest rated year in history….We’ll certainly miss you here: But, glad that you’re staying part of the Fox & Friends family!”

In response, Abby amiably answered, “I love being here with you, Heather! Thanks so much! I’m excited for this new adventure, a new chapter! But, I love our audience: I love the Fox & Friends family!”

And, the F&FW audience appears to love her back. Whether Abby can live up to her predecessors, e.g., Kiran Chetry, Alisyn Camerota, Anna Kooiman, etc. remains to be seen. But, she does seem to be off to a good start.

Congrats anew, Abby!

 

Pete Hegseth: Next F&FW Co-host?

December 14, 2016

“Looking forward to many weekends together, [Abby].” Fox & Friends Weekend crew being finalized? Of late, former F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman abdicated as queen of the F&FW curvy couch for the Land Down Under, and erstwhile F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson followed suit for his very own eponymous show, Tucker Carlson Tonight. Yesterday, Fox & Friends First co-host Abby Huntsman was named the new queen of the F&FW curvy couch.

Re one permanent F&FW co-anchor seat left outstanding, Fox News Insider declared, “Abby Huntsman, Clayton Morris and a rotating male co-host for the perfect start to your Saturday and Sunday.” However, frequent fill-in co-host Pete Hegseth may have hinted at the actual answer to whom the next F&FW co-anchor is. In a congratulatory Tweet to Abby yesterday, he wrote, “Huge congrats to @HuntsmanAbby! Talented, smart, and fun. Well earned”: Concluding, Pete remarked, “Looking forward to many weekends together. A fun ride ahead, indeed!”

Early this morning, Abby Tweeted, “Thanks Pete!! See you this weekend ;).”

Hmm: It appears that “rotating male anchor” just might be Pete. And, that’s not a bad thing.

Abby Huntsman: F&FW Cohost–Finally!

December 13, 2016

Fox & Friends Weekend finally has an official queen of the curvy couch (after Anna Kooiman‘s abdication of her crown to reign Down Under). Today, The Hill‘s Joe Concha reported, “Suzanne Scott, Fox News’s executive vice president of programming, says the 30-year-old Huntsman will make her official debut this Saturday.” Of course, FNC signaled Abby’s coronation-to-be when it celebrated twenty years of FNC with Abby, Tucker Carlson, and Clayton Morris as the face of F&FW on October 7 (vid via J$P).[Carpe Diem got the hint: Cf. “F&F: ‘Abby Huntsman: Co-host Fox & Friends.'”] Chiming in that day, Abby Tweeted,  “Grew up watching …was so humbled to join the crew this morning to celebrate 20 years for !”

Approximately, a month later, (November 8), FNC honcho Bill Shine seemed to send a clear signal: F&FW fans were introduced to not only to her handsome hubby Jeff (pic of the two lovers) but also to her only her lovable golden retriever, Golden George. (Cf. Carpe Diem article entitled “F&FW’s Abby Huntsman Marks Her Territory.”) Within two weeks thereafter (November 20), two of Abby’s gorgeous sisters joined her for a cooking segment. [Pic of the three sibs and a nephew.] And, only ten days ago (December 3), the F&FW audience was introduced to Abby’s parents, Jon and Mary Kaye Huntsman, in a chyroned “Meet Abby’s Parent’s segment [pic]. Yesterday, the author penned an article in which Abby was deemed the “[F&F] apparent co-anchor: Perchance, Shine finally realized that the F&FW fans were tired of the wait until Abby became their “bride”–or, rather, the new F&FW Queen of the Curvy Couch.

Congratulations, Abby! Much success!

 

Chagrined Clayton Leaves

December 12, 2016

The Curvy Couch! Poor Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris was aptly chastised by F&F fans for his sloppy sartorial slip Sunday: So, a la F&F weekday co-anchor Brian Kilmeade, he left the curvy couch chagrined. As the final half hour of the show began, apparent co-anchor Abby Huntsman remarked, “Alright, so, we’ve wanted to get [to] this all morning long but we’ve waited until now. Clayton, you don’t know about this: But people [have] been emailing in all morning long in about your tie.” Turning to Clayton and pointing to his tie which was tucked under his crotch, she smiling said, “They’re saying that it’s too long.” As possible future co-host Pete Hegseth leaned in for a closer look, Abby and Pete began to laugh uncontrollably.

Continuing, Abby remarked, “I’m going to read one of the emails here….They say, ‘Clayton and Pete, is this a new fashion trend started by Trump–tying your ties too long?” In answer, Clayton explained, “Blake wants to know that? No, it was pure laziness, Blake….Here’s how dumb I was this morning. I tied it this morning, and I said, ‘You know what, that’s too long…but I’ll be sitting down and no one will notice.” Looking into the camera with a grin at the viewer, he added, “But, then I forgot that we’re on in front of millions of people—and, you did notice!”

Chuckling, Clayton stood up and tucked his tie deep into his pants: And, then promptly he exited the curvy couch a la Kilmeade. Addressing the audience with a smile, Abby said, “Thanks for your emails, guys: We always want to know what you think, about the fashion.”

At least, Clayton did not have his jacket buttoned as he sat–as Fox & Friends co-hosts once did before they apparently got a sartorial tutorial. It is not the first fashion faux pas on the curvy couch and, most assuredly, it will not be last. Hopefully.

*Fox & Friends – 12/11/16 (@ 9:35 a.m. ET).

Tucker’s Last Day

November 5, 2016

Carlson: I’m going to miss you guys. I really am!” Today was Tucker Carlson‘s finale as Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor. As the show began, co-host Clayton Morris remarked, “Let’s address the elephant in the room because I’m a little misty today: This is Tucker’s last day sitting on the curvy couch with us on Fox & Friends [Weekend]. I’m going to miss you terribly!” Explaining Tucker’s departure, Clayton continued, “But, you’re not going very far. You’re going to be going to the seven p.m. prime time here on Fox News Channel.”

Chiming in, putative F&FW co-anchor Abby Huntsman declared, “It’s a big deal! We’re so excited for you.”

Turning to Abby, Tucker responded, “Thank you!” Then, he added, “I’m sad about it, actually. I haven’t thought about it. I’m excited: But, I’m sad this is my last day. It’s so totally bizarre.”

From the F&FW co-host who told viewers that he did not eat food on TV and who signed his name with printed initials, Tucker has come a long way–especially for his long-time viewers who watched him long ago on CNN when he seemed to be the smug, smart-alecky bow-tie wearing co-host of Crossfire. [Celebrating Tucker’s evolution on the curvy couch: F&FW vid “A Look Back.”] Initially, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Caller seemed reluctant to embrace his additional role as an FNC edutainment co-anchor: But, Bill Shine–with the invaluable coaching of former co-anchor Alisyn Camerota eased Tucker onto the curvy couch, replacing the charming, self-effacing Dave Briggs.

Tucker, it was always evident that you were on the Fox News A-Team, and you brought real gravitas to the F&FW curvy couch: When major news events occurred, you would oft stay put on the show as co-anchor or pundit when your co-hosts other than Aly oft vacated theirs. Ergo, it is no surprise that you are getting your new show at 7 p.m. ET. Congratulations!

F&FW’s Abby Huntsman Marks Her Territory

October 22, 2016

“This is my husband Jeff!” Fox & Friends Weekend‘s apparent new queen of the curvy couch, Abby Huntsman, staked her claim to her territory seemingly, by showcasing her much beloved golden retriever, George [pic], and introducing her hubby Jeff to her fans–twice. If FNC co-honcho Bill Shine will not say it overtly yet, Abby came quite close this morn.

Promoting F&FW yesterday, Abby Tweeted, “My golden retriever George would like you all to know he’ll make his debut tomorrow morning at 9:50am in his Halloween costume.” And, he did in F&F‘s penultimate segment. As George walked the F&FW red carpet in his lobster costume, Abby gushed, “And, there comes my pup: There’s George!” As her pup tried to shake off his unwieldy canine garb, Abby laughed, “He’s not liking his costume very much!” Petting George to cheer him up, she exclaimed, “Hey, Buddy!”

Then, as George reached the end of his “‘dog’walk,” Abby proudly said, “Anybody who follows me on social media knows George.” Then, ever so nonchalantly, F&FW co-anchor Tucker Carlson queried, “Who…is walking George?” Pointing to George’s human escort, a smiling Abby proclaimed, “This is my husband Jeff!” Hugging her hubby, Abby said, “Welcome to, to Fox & Friends!”

Subsequently, in the final segment, Abby reigned from her central seat with hubby Jeff [photo] (with George at their feeet) as Tucker and fill-in co-host Pete Hegseth flanked them. Pointing to Abby, Jeff, and George, Pete remarked, “Look who we have here, two of the most…the three Huntsmans!” Embracing her guy, Abby anew announced, “This is is my husband Jeff!” Turning to her love, Abby remarked, “This your first time here–and you did it for the dog costume segment.” Answering his gorgeous gal, Jeff declared, “Well, I feel honored to be here. Honored to be here!”

First time to be here”: Even if Shine explicitly said it, it appears that Abby now has three husbands–her two TV ones and her real one.

Update: This afternoon/evening, Abby responded to her fans requesting a pic of George in his lobster costume by providing this one.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, Abby Huntsman!”

So introduced Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Tucker Carlson his lovely co-host Abby Huntsman. “Abby Huntsman,” echoed F&FW co-host Clayton Morris. For the first time since Fox & Friends weekday introduced her on October 7 with a chyron as “Abby Huntsman: Co-host ‘Fox & Friends Weekend,” F&FW did similarly today when it introduced the three co-anchors with their names and their respective Twitter addresses at the start of each of the first three hours.

Now, Abby seems all the more certain to have secured her place on the F&FW curvy couch. On October 7, F&F identified Abby as co-host of F&FW, supra: Later, that very day, Abby Tweeted, “Grew up watching …was so humbled to join the crew this morning to celebrate 20 years for !” The next day, Fox News Tweeted, “TUNE IN: and host a jam-packed edition of now on Fox News Channel.”

After F&FW today, Abby Tweeted, “It’s official. I ❤️ my job! foxandfriends @ 1211 Avenue of… . In response, a fan Tweeted, you are a great addition to excellent work [thumbs-up emoji]: As if to remove any doubt as to her new status, Abby replied, “Thanks Lou!”

Abby, a “great addition” to F&FW? FNC has not made a clarion proclamation: But, it seems quite pellucid that Bill Shine has made his choice: I.e., Abby is the new it” gal on the curvy couch. Seemingly, not overly cowed by her apparent predecessor beauty Anna Kooiman‘s fab “booty-shaking” prowess [vid links included], Abby is not afraid to dance to bumper music on the curvy couch–or even to do the polka on the patio [vid via J$P]!

To paraphrase Axl Rose [vid], welcome to the Gotham jungle (on the F&FW curvy couch), Abby! Beauty and the beast–er, beasts!

F&F: “Abby Huntsman: Co-host ‘Fox & Friends Weekend'”

October 7, 2016

Wow! Apparently, FNC proclaimed Abby Huntsman the new queen of the Fox & Friends Weekend on the curvy couch on the sly. In a segment celebrating twenty years of Fox News, Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade were juxtaposed in mirror image on that very curvy couch with Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris, oft-of-late guest co-host Abby Huntsman,  and F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson. N.B. Steve and Clayton are the senior co-hosts on their respective shows; Brian and Tucker the juniors on theirs; and Ainsley and, apparently, now Abby are the new hires.

Eagle-eyed Johnny Dollar of famed Johnny Dollar’s Place apparently noticed Abby’s seeming elevation from fill-in F&FW co-host to regular F&FW co-host as well. In his “Friday Links and Open Thread” section, he penned, “F&F co-hosts” with a clip of the aforementioned segment. One of his posters, Sparty, noted, “Abby Huntsman was just on F&F with Tucker and Clayton and crawl said she was F&FW co-host….” And, indeed it did: The chyron read, “Abby Huntsman[:] Cohost ‘Fox & Friends Weekend.'”

However, Fox & Friends Weekend‘s Facebook page and Fox & Friends insider: Fox & Friends Weekend only list Clayton Morris and Tucker Carlson as co-hosts. Furthermore, both Abby’s Twitter page and her Facebook page make no mention of her possible new status. To boot, Abby’s FNC bio does not reflect it.

Was Abby crowned without the ceremony? The author tends to think she was. But, he awaits the official proclamation of Abby’s reign.
