Kiran’s Christmas Wish: More F&FW Magic?

December 25, 2012

“I told [Santa] I just want a job. Lol!!” Shine Kiran’s future Santa? Within the span of only six days as Christmas drew imminently near, former FNC/CNN anchor Kiran Chetry clearly indicated that she is more than eager to return to the air. On December 16, she Tweeted a pic of herself, her kids, and St. Nick, saying, “Santa came to LYC! I told him I just want a job. Loll!!” A mere five days later, she Tweeted a fun food-face photo, declaring, “Making lunch for the kids. Moma need a job:).”

Apparently, Kiran does indeed need a job now (after her namaskaar to American Morning almost one year and half ago): And, her former employer FNC’s Programming SVP Bill Shine could certainly use her. Since Shine will lose his popular Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs in seven short days (at the end of this year), he needs someone who can seamlessly replace Dave on the curvy couch with co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris. And, Kiran, certainly could: After all, she teamed with Aly (during her first F&FW stint) as the smart, sassy, and sexy duo that made men literally weak in the knees and made F&FW must-see TV during the early-to-mid 2000’s in the process. (Remember Kiran spanking Kelly Wright?)

Hopefully, 2013 will be a time for new beginnings–for FNC and Kiran. A time for Roger Ailes to forgive Kiran after her sojourn in the desert. And, a time for Bill Shine to give Kiran that “very special opportunity to team up with Aly again (and Clayton) to make more F&FW magic.

Tearful Briggs Leaves F&FW

December 22, 2012

Dave: “I’m not going away! Just going somewhere else in the New Year.” Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris dropped a bombshell this morning by announcing that co-host Dave Briggs is leaving their popular FNC morning weekend show. After the final half hour began with the “Shot of the Morning,” Clayton turned to Dave and their fellow co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, remarking, “I want to take a moment here because this is going to be the last time that the three of us…are going to be on the couch together. Looking down, Dave replied, “Wow! I didn’t expect you to say that: But, yeah, I am. I will be moving on.”

Tearing up, Dave continued, “I will miss the two of you more than I can speak. You’ve made me better and you’ve made the show better. You’ve been my work family!”

Growing emotional, too, Clayton interjected, stammering, “Likewise, man! It’s like a, like losing, you know, having a brother leave, you know, with a family and move on.”

Chiming in, Aly exclaimed, “We will miss you so much, Dave!”

Sentimentally, Dave stated, “I will miss you both! It’s been the best show, best job of my life. I will never have a job I enjoy more, no matter where I go.” Looking into the camera at his fans, he assuring stated, “But, you will see me. I’m not going away! Just going somewhere else in the New Year but it’s been a wonderful experience here.”

As to Dave’s departure date, Aly explained, “Dave will be through here through the end of the year: But, I won’t be working during these shows.”

Sounding as if he may be leaving Fox News to boot, Dave declared, “But, I should say thanks to…Roger Ailes, and to Bill Shine, and Suzanne Scott, and some of the people who brought me here as well. And, all the producers who have helped me out for a couple of years. But, I just, I love you guys!” Then, as FNC meteorologist Rick Reichmuth appeared in a split screen shot, Dave added, “And, Rick, Rick has been my confidante and my office mate. And, you guys are, you’re my family: I’ve never had a work family….Damn, I’m gonna miss it!”

Nodding his head for emphasis, Rick replied, “We’re gonna miss you, Dave! But, you know, the good part is you’re not moving anywhere….This is Aly’s and this is my last day with you, Dave. So, it been wonderful to have you here: And, we will miss you a ton.”

So, where will Dave be? Before his big announcement, a Twitter follower asked, “What’s with the beard cutie?”: In answer to his avatar change, Dave cryptically Tweeted, “Explanation coming soon…”

Perhaps, much more telling, in the final segment of F&FW today, Aly gave Dave multiple pairs of hosiery as a parting present, saying, “So, Dave, I don’t know if your new co-anchor is gonna want to match her outfit to your socks: But, if so, I have gotten you some possibly anchor-friendly new socks to match with her outfits.” Seemingly, confirming that he will be co-hosting a new show with a new female co-host, he answered,”I think she’s gonna love them!”

Pleading with his fans for their continued loyalty in his future endeavor, Dave subsequently Tweeted, “I will miss our viewers almost as much as Clayton, Aly & Rick. I really appreciate every one of you and hope you stick w/me in 2013…”

Good luck, Dave!

[Author’s aside: Notably, on this august occasion, Dave dutifully donned his connubial band today after approximately three weeks on F&FW sans it. Bravo, Brandi!]

Update: In the After the Show Show (via J$P), Aly more definitively verified Dave new gig, saying, “You new co-anchor is such a lucky woman!”

Update2: According to J$P, the “likely destination for @davebriggstv – NBC Sports Network.” Subsequently, he RT’d @SPORTSbyBROOKS: SbB has learned NBC Sports Network is planning a daily show hosted by @MichelleDBeadle & @davebriggstv.” As further evidence, he teased, “RT @MichelleDBeadle (yesterday): Cranked out promos for my new sports show and my last Access Hollywood of the year….”

Aly: “Steve & Brian Here with Me”

December 15, 2012

Gretchen: Hey, everyone! I’m…in for Shep today. Aly at Fox & Friends’ helm soon? Today, FNC anchor Alisyn Camerota was in charge of the F&F “A Team” as F&F Weekend covered the Connecticut school carnage. After a special weekend edition of F&F First, Aly welcomed her audience and the F&F “big boys,” saying, “Good morning, everyone! We appreciate you joining us on this very sad morning. It’s great to have Steve [Doocy] and Brian [Kilmeade] here with me.”

Remarkably, Aly did not note the absence of either of her regular F&FW co-hosts Clayton Morris or Dave Briggs. Furthermore, in this Fox & Friends “special edition,” Aly did not mention her purported “A Team” counterpart Gretchen Carlson, who was conspicuously missing this morning. Has the changing of the F&F “A Team” guard already begun?

Only two days ago, seldom solo host Gretchen notably filled in for Shepard Smith on Studio B, an FNC afternoon show (saying, “Hello, everyone! I’m…in for Shep today”):* Perhaps, her contract negotiations have begun to bear more fruit. According to New York Magazine, Gretchen was “said to want to host her own show on the network but Fox executives [were] resistant to the idea”: furthermore, it reported that a source had said that she had reached a “short-term accord that would keep her on the curvy couch with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade until the election” but added that “after November, it’s unclear.”

Perhaps, tellingly, Gretchen has seemed to be particularly strident in her polemics lately–as if she might be auditioning for “her own show.” And, her co-hosts Steve and Brian appear reluctantly to be biting their tongue all the more. Perchance, they think that she is starting to spread her wings in anticipation of a flight on her own soon to a later hour on FNC.

Post-election F&F: Gretch a goner? If so, is Aly their new “It girl”? Stay tuned.

Ailes’ Angel Aly: “Just Smoking Hot!”

December 10, 2012

Camerota, Aly Camerota. Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota went off on a secret assignment last week with her FNC colleague Ainsley Earhardt. After promising to provide clues to her Twitter followers, Aly Tweeted them airport and arrival pics (1, 2). Shortly thereafter, Aly sent them a video of herself and Ainz, revealing, “We’re here [in Austin] learning how to be action heroes at the very place that trains the stunt doubles for the James Bond movie”: Elaborating in the clip, Ainz added, “We’re going to be blowing up cars, shooting guns [and] jumping through rings of fire; it’s gonna be fun!

Proving Ainz’s point, Aly’s apparent assistant Tweeted her own inside shot, saying, “This looks way frightening @AlisynCamerota packing heat via.me/-7i442ue.” Adding to the intrigue, Aly Tweeted a photo of herself in training,  scaling a mock skyscraper in tandem with Ainz. Subsequently, she sent an action photo of herself with wind-blown tresses next to a roaring fire (with the caption “Just another typical day in the life of a news gal). To top it off, Aly Tweeted a “Charlie’s Angels” shot of herself and Ainz sexily posing with big guns in front of a raging inferno: Tantalizing her fans further in the caption, she wrote, “Stay tuned to find out what @ainsleyearhardt and I have been up to.”

Stay tuned indeed. Ailes’s Angels: Ainz and Aly Cat. Rowrrr!

[Author’s aside: “Just smoking hot!” in the title of this article is derived from F&FW co-anchor Clayton Morris‘ apt description of Aly about two weeks ago. After a smoking segment promo, Clayton turned to Aly and racily remarked, “You smoke.” When Aly chuckled, co-host Dave Briggs interjected, “She’s just smoking!” Eying Aly, Clayton exclaimed, “She’s just smoking hot!” F&FW – 11/25/12 (@ 9:00 a.m. ET)]

“Ringless” Briggs Gets Bawdy

December 3, 2012

Dave: “There’s a lot happening down there.” Oops! Naughty Fox & Friends co-host Dave Briggs may just receive some coal in his stocking on Christmas morn this year from his beauty Brandi. Perhaps, rightly so. For two days straight, Dave has reverted to his old habit of “forgetting” his wedding band: To make matters worse for himself, he got a bit bawdier than usual to boot!

Returning from the first half-hour commercial break,  a somewhat muted Dave began to promo a tipping segment.* When he did, his co-anchor Clayton Morris interjected, “I’ll give you a tip if you pull your microphone out of your pocket.” As Dave pulled his mic from his pants and high-fived Clayton, his co-host Alisyn Camerota laughed, “That’s the best tip of the day!”

Ribaldly, Clayton remarked, “Although it sounded great in your pants!”

Stroking his nose puckishly, Dave bawdily declared, “There’s a lot happening down there!”

As Clayton chuckled at Dave’s priapic posit, Aly smirked and rolled her eyes, remarking, “Alright. Most people aren’t looking for that kind of tip! They’re looking for a monetary tip.”

After watching her bad boy on Sunday’s show, Brandi may be looking for her own “tip” (or Christmas extra). Albeit a slightly larger one!

Ainsley’s “Back”: “What Did You Do to Me?”

November 20, 2012

Clayton: “My, my clothes are still on!” The Coolidge effect? Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-anchor Clayton Morris seemed to have a revived libido Sunday when sexy guest co-host Ainsley Earhardt filled in for F&FW regular co-anchor Alisyn Camerota. In fact, he turned rather rakish during an “Amazing Kreskin!” segment when Ainsley was asked to close her eyes for a card “test” by the famed mentalist.

As famed mentalist “Amazing Kreskin” promoted his new book, Conversations with Kreskin (with a foreword by FNC Prez Roger Ailes), he told of Ailes’ praise for his prowess with cards: Pulling out a deck, he asked Ainsley to close her eyes and to trust him. Smiling as she shut them, she replied, “I trust you.” Pointing to both Clayton and her other co-anchor Dave Briggs, she laughed, “I don’t trust these guys! I’m going to trust you. My life is in your hands.”

When Kreskin had executed his legerdemain for his test of Ainsley, he said, “I want you to open your eyes.” Grinning, Clayton chimed, “You can open you eyes now.” Joining the chorus, Dave commanded, “Open your eyes now. Open them!”

Looking down at her cleavage as she did so, a reddening Ainsley asked, “What did you do to me?” Beaming, Dave declared, “We didn’t touch you–at all!” As Dave put up his palms to assert his innocence, Clayton racily remarked, “My clothes are still on!” In response, Dave’s eyes widened in incredulity as he struggled vainly to maintain his composure: Meanwhile, a chuckling Ainsley blushed all the more. But, she smiled sweetly at her naughty lad Clayton.

Ainsley: back to the future with her bad boys on the weekend? Aly did debut her new do proudly on F&F weekday Monday.** And, as to Gretchen, the election is over.

Briggs Jabs at Jerrick: But, Hits Branson (Vets)

November 11, 2012

“Hot spot of the Midwest…Mike Jerrick’s favorite place.” Aly’s bosom? Of all days, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs chose Veterans Day to nettle benightedly his older guest co-host Mike Jerrick, and by extension, elder-friendly Branson, Missouri. Segueing to a segment with Lt. Colonel Oliver North about Branson’s Veterans Homecoming Week honoring World War II veterans on, Dave jested, “It’s the live entertainment hotspot of the Midwest…Branson, Missouri, Mike’s favorite place.”* Mitigating smartly Dave’s ill-timed barb, Mike interposed, “That’s right!”

Subsequently, Lt. Col. North interviewed several senior vets who had served from as far back as 1957. When he had concluded his segment and had tossed back to Dave, Mike, and co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, Dave deftly declared, “I’ve never been to Branson!” Immediately, Mike exclaimed, “I’ve been there! It’s great!” Chiming in, Aly declared, “You [Dave] would love it!”

Calling Aly out, inadvertently or not, Dave asked, “You’ve been, right?” In answer, Aly admitted, “No, I haven’t.”

Ebulliently, Briggs replied, “I would love it. I gotta go!”

When Aly interestingly indicated that she’d like to go DollyWood instead for her next vacation, Dave deftly declared, “We should do a show from Branson and a show from Dollywood.” In reply, Aly aptly exclaimed, “Bingo!”

As the denoement of Dave’s diminutive debacle concluded, Mike, ever the satyr of the dawn, subtly gestured toward Aly’s bosom, randily remarking, “You have so much in common with Dolly Parton!” Smiling, Aly racily replied, “I know that!” Rolling his eyes in mirth, Dave playfully snorted and wisely stayed silent this time.

F&F’s “Sexy” Nauert: Distant But in Control

October 22, 2012

Waking up with Heather on the weekend. Leggy Fox & Friends First co-host Heather Nauert seized the F&F Weekend helm for Alisyn Camerota with gusto Sunday. But, instead of flaunting her gorgeous gams a la F&FF, the blond beauty seemed somewhat demure: Dressed in a short black dress and an “M&M” green jacket, Heather hid herself behind her open laptop for the day (as her co-hosts Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs provided her cover as they anomalously kept theirs studiously open as well).

Sexy or not, the girl still ruled the roost almost like a young E.D. Hill. Playing the needed F&FW “alpha bitch,” Heather had her boys going through their paces. Rarely stopping for breath, she was subtly hushing Dave with her hand at one moment and conspicuously instructing Clayton to elaborate at another.

Heather may have performed well today as a substitute with her co-hosts, Clayton and Dave: But, she could learn from Aly, the master, on how to awaken F&FW‘s fans. For FNC weekend viewers who are struggling mightily to escape the embrace of Morpheus, a softer, gentler greeting from a gorgeous gal is preferable to one from a Red-Bull-infused chatty Cathy. To boot, she may want to close the cloaking laptop as a general rule in the future: as Megyn Kelly aptly declared (about her America Live leg-displaying glass desk), “It’s a visual business. People want to see the anchor.”

Fox & Friends: Gretch a Goner?

September 11, 2012

Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson‘s future at Fox News is in question according to New York MagazineNYM reported that one of its sources said that Gretchen and FNC are “haggling over her contract terms” and revealed that Gretchen wants her own FNC show but Fox suits are not keen on the idea. However, NYM indicated that one lead said that Gretchen and FNC had “reach[ed] a short-term accord that would keep her on the curvy couch with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade until the election [b]ut after November, it’s unclear.”

Over a month earlier, the author noted Gretchen’s uncertain future at Fox & Friends in a Carpe Diem article entitled, “Gretchen’s ‘Last Summer Vacation.'” After Gretchen decided to take her one “last summer vacation before kicking into high gear for the political conventions and the election,” he noted that F&F began not only to utilize its regular talent such as Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Alisyn Camerota and Fox & Friends First co-host Ainsley Earnhardt but also to showcase significantly possible celebrity replacements, i.e., Olympian Dara Torres and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi. Yet, the writing was still not necessarily on the proverbial wall.

Now, it well may be. As Inside Cable News declared, “If there is a shred of truth to this [New York Magazine story], Carlson is on dangerous ground. Roger Ailes and FNC have a history of summarily dispatching talent whose dreams are bigger than FNC reality will tolerate (see: Chetry, Kiran).”

Wouldn’t that be ironic? Deliciously so–if Ailes finally forgave Gretchen’s nemesis, Kiran Chetry, for her “seminal sin” and welcomed the waiting beauty back into the FNC fold with that “very special opportunity.” After all, Aly is indispensable to F&F Weekend.

Frisky Aly: “Citizen’s Arrest”

August 25, 2012

Bad boy Clayton’s back: “[F]ind my phone.” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota may not have wanted to make a citizen’s arrest on the set today: But, co-anchor F&FW‘s Clayton Morris certainly seemed eager for his personal pat-down from the comely former correspondent of America’s Most Wanted. Alas, for poor Clayton, it was not to be–at least, on air.

In the second hour of F&FW, Aly innocuously read the headline news story about a “jury [finding] Samsung guilty of ripping off the technology used by Apple to create a number of devices.” When Clayton subsequently explained that some of the Samsung phones and tablets may now be “technically illegal,” a seemingly confused Aly pointed to his iPad and the one belonging to fellow co-host Dave Briggs and asked if they were “contraband.” After Clayton (and Dave) explained that it was the Samsung devices that were suspect not the Apple ones, Aly jested, “Good! ‘Cause I don’t want to make a citizen’s arrest. I don’t want to have to make a citizen’s arrest before the show is over.”

Grinning like a Greek satyr, Clayton pruriently replied, “It would be nice. I think people wouldn’t mind being [arrested].” Before he could finish, Dave puckishly pointed to Clayton, saying, “He wouldn’t mind being frisked.” Enthusiastically, Clayton concurred, “Right!”

Chuckling at his randy readiness, a smiling Aly arched her eyebrows playfully and shook her head at Clayton. Turning to her, Clayton opened his coat wide and racily remarked, “See if they find my phone!” Blushing and beaming, Aly coquettishly tilted her head toward him and vainly tried to suppress a naughty school girl giggle.”

Good citizen Aly: Bad boy Clayton. Fun F&FW!

Missing Morris: “Pneumonia!”

August 19, 2012

Another weekend off? Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris continued to be M.I.A. from his post–for the second week in a row. Unfortunately, his co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Dave Briggs provided scant commentary for Clayton’s extended absence other than his being sick. Given F&FW‘s past anchor defenestrations (e.g., Page Hopkins, Kelly Wright, and Greg Kelly), unexplained departures (Kiran Chetry), and questionable leaves of absence (Alisyn Camerota), Clayton’s fans surely deserved much more transparency. Happily, apparently, Clayton provided those answers last week–via Twitter.

On the day before F&FW Saturday (last week), Clayton Tweeted, “My wife [Natali Morris nee Del Conte] is a saint. Taking care of two kids and a husband with a 103 degree fever. I’m useless. Well, more than usual.” After the show, he remarked, “Chest X-Ray time to find out if this is pneumonia.” On the following Monday (two days later), Clayton comically revealed the results: He jested, “I’ve lost 6 pounds! My diet secret? Pneumonia!”

At least, Clayton gets it. Get well soon, Clayton!

Rick Reichmuth’s “Rude” Landing: Cops Called

July 30, 2012

Dave Briggs: “Sorry, Rick, I just outed the whole story!” Fox & Friends Weekend meteorologist Rick Reichmuth was having a “good morning” Saturday. Excitedly, he reported on the 30th Annual Quick Chek NJ Festival of Ballooning during his seven weather segments and enthusiastically shared video and pics (1, 2, and 3) with his Twitter followers. Then, it took a notable turn for the worse as he subsequently took a scenic balloon ride that ended in an irate farmer’s field. Unfortunately, Rick did not tell that part of the story: But, his FNC office-mate and F&FW co-host Dave Briggs did.

On Saturday, as Rick’s final weather forecast ended, he took flight in a red, white, and blue balloon ironically with “800 FARMERS” emblazoned thereon.* Recalling that fact Sunday, Dave introduced the first weather segment, remarking, “The last we saw of Rick Reichmuth, he was getting on an air balloon and floating off: the next thing we know, Maria Molina is in. I…don’t know what conclusion you could draw other than, maybe, he didn’t land.” Laughing, Maria replied that she hoped that Rick would make it back safely and added that he would be having a long weekend off.

When Maria’s forecast concluded, Dave took the toss and filled in the juicy details: Chuckling, he revealed, “And, I should mention [that] Rick did land on his hot air balloon–in a farm: And, the man actually called the police. He wasn’t so interested in them landing in there.” As his co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris laughed gleefully, a grinning Dave added, “Sorry, Rick, I just outed the whole story! It was good times.”

“Good times”? Perhaps, for everyone except Rick and his poor pilot. And, the angry farmer who, apparently, was not one of the “800” who sponsored Rick’s ill-fated balloon.

Rick, no pain, no gain: Just a little extra curricular F&FW fun for the fans!

“Relatively” Famous Dave

July 7, 2012

FNC’s Molly Henneberg: Good morning, Clayton, Gretchen, and Brian! Not exactly what Fox & Friends guest host Dave Briggs had wanted to hear from his Fox News colleague yesterday. Almost since the inception of their time together on F&F Weekend, Dave and his co-anchor Clayton Morris have struggled to create their own identity.

Approximately, four years ago, Carpe Diem dubbed Dave and Clayton the “Doublemen Twins” and watched the two develop in their own right. Almost two years later, their F&FW co-host Alisyn Camerota teased both of them by saying that she was just beginning to tell them apart. Since then (April 17, 2011), F&FW favorite Juliet Huddy has got in on the fun to the slight ire of Dave. But to be fair, Dave and Clayton have taken the ribbing in good humor as of late and even instigated the comparison on their own.

To whit, Friday, Dave did grimace when Molly greeted him as Clayton after his introduction of a jobs/politics segment: But, he did take her unintended slight in stride.* When she finished her story, a slightly smiling Dave put up his iPad to his face with a photo of his erstwhile Doublemen twin, saying, “Molly, this is Clayton Morris.” Pointing to the an off-screen cam and then to himself, Dave declared, “If you can take camera three, this is Dave Briggs.”

Kindly, Dave added, “I’m just kidding with you, Molly. It happens all the time! We look alike but Clayton will be coming up at 8:15….It happens!” Turning to his co-host Brian Kilmeade, he self-deprecatingly declared, “And, that Brian is how famous I am!” Meanwhile, a reddening Molly cringed in chagrin and apologized profusely.

Nicely played, Dave!

[Author’s aside: Just five minutes before Molly mistake, Brian had kidded Dave that he could pass off Famous Dave’s Southern BBQ as his own since he was Dave and he was famous. In reply, a beaming Dave presciently remarked, “Well, relatively. Relatively.” F&F – 07/06/12 – (@ 8:01 a.m. ET)]

Brian’s “Fred Claus” Obsession: Secret Revealed

June 27, 2012

Elizabeth Banks: I wear a very short skirt. Today, fans of Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade‘s finally learned the reason for his odd obsession with the critically-panned Christmas movie Fred Claus. And it was not the holiday spirit–or spirits.

This morning, Brian and his co-hosts, Alisyn Camerota and Steve Doocy, interviewed actress Elizabeth Banks as she promoted her new film People Like Us. As the segment drew to a close, Aly asked, “You know what Brian’s favorite movie is?” With the hint of a smile, Banks answered, “I heard it’s Fred Claus.”

Grinning sheepishly, Brian interjected, “It’s Fred Claus! It’s the best movie ever. You were genius in it!” After chuckling heartily, she replied, “Well, I wear a very short dress. Thank you for noticing.” As Brian laughed, a smiling Aly nodded her head knowingly and pointed accusingly at him. Turning to Brian, Steve aptly jested, “Oh, no wonder! Fred who?”

Mike Jerrick: “Debby Does Tampa”

June 23, 2012

The boy can’t help it.  Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Mike Jerrick had to go there: Heboken Now’s randy rake who “will jump at every opportunity to make a double entendre” could not resist the one virtually served up to him today on a platter by his co-host Alisyn Camerota (and the WMO).

As the third hour of F&FW began, Aly announced, “We have an extreme weather alert for  you because a storm is brewing and it has its eyes on the Gulf Coast and parts of Florida. Debby is gearing up to become a tropical storm: We’ll tell you what’s in store straight ahead.”

Segueing to his intro of an upcoming segment (ironically subtitled “Bottom Up Economics”), Mike, “F&FW’s Golden Goat,” bawdily deadpanned, “Debby does Tampa.”

In other words, Mike does F&FW. But, not in the same way. Happily.

Aly Teases: “I’m Bi”

June 16, 2012

“–partisan.” Today, Fox & Friends Weekend Alisyn Camerota playfully “came out.” And, her co-anchors Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs reveled in the very thought. As a segment about how one’s purchasing habits indicate whether one is a Democratic or Republican ended this morning, Aly racily remarked, “I’m bi.”* After a pregnant paused, she added, “Partisan.”

In response, Clayton and Dave were more than receptive to the idea. As Aly began her tease (“I’m bi”), Clayton turned immediately toward her in apparent surprise: when she added “partisan,” Clayton looked down at his papers with a knowing grin. Similarly, Dave looked at Aly with widened eyes as he arched his eyebrows and grinned goatishly.

As Aly beamed naughtily, Dave wheezed loudly and Clayton breathlessly queried, “Hunh?” When Aly glanced over at an off-cam Dave in delight, he exclaimed, “Uh, wow!” Suggestively, Aly riposted, “It’s true. Bipartisan with all those choices. Let us know what you think, please.” Still excited by Aly’s ribald “revelation,” Dave stammered, “Alright. Yes! Okay.”

Aly: what a tease!

Alisyn Camerota: Waiting for “Our” Rack

June 10, 2012

Clayton Morris: “Your form’s always good.” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota is “sexy and [she knows] it.” Yesterday, when her co-host Clayton Morris ribbed her about her “terrible [Bass Pro] archery session” from a few years ago, Aly confidently cooed, “I thought my form was good”: Taking no exception to that certitude, Clayton aptly answered, “Your form’s always good–if I do say so.”* Sounding a mite like a bawdy Mae West, Aly proudly purred, “Thank you!”

Today, Aly naughtily played with her other co-host Dave Briggs after his 10th Annual Big Apple barbeque segment (with four racks of ribs on the grill). As he segued back to her and Clayton, Aly raised her eyebrow suggestively and randily remarked, “Okay, we’re waiting on ‘our’ rack in here. I’m on it!” [Single parenthesis added for emphasis.] Perhaps, remembering his infamous faux pas almost three years ago (lampooned by Jay Leno for checking out the derrieres of his comely FNC colleagues Ainsley Earhardt and Janice Dean), Dave chuckled, “No comment.”

While Clayton sheepishly grinned, a beaming, breathy Aly batted her eyebrows, riposting, “Yeah.” As if to say, “You don’t need to say a word, Dave: I already have my own. And, as Clayton said yesterday, my form is always good!”

Indeed.

F&FW “Garbage”: Blithely Blind Reportage?

June 2, 2012

Hero praised: But, heroine ignored. Still on holiday! Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts Dave Briggs, Alisyn Camerota, and Clayton Morris‘ seemed to be a little off their game this morning: at least, as to the three’s odd oblivion to the patent heroism of the “fairer sex” in the rescue of a baby on a runaway stroller (video). Twice, the story played: twice, the guy who helped save the child was applauded but the gal who actually caught the little one was ignored completely. Crazy!

Five times, producers played the video or a portion thereof: thrice (one promo and the two reports), they aired the footage that not only included the garbage truck driver who chased the stroller and honked to alert others but also a nameless lady with a large dog on a leash who ran to rescue the baby as it hit the curb. It was not as if the three co-hosts were unfamiliar with the video. But. strangely, they seemed blithely blind to the anonymous heroine thereon.

After Clayton teased the tale at the very beginning of the show, Dave reported it almost an hour and half later during a headlines segment.  As video played of the wayward stroller, Dave intoned, “The garbage truck driver turned hero quickly coming to the rescue: He began honking his horn and blocking traffic [and] running out after the stroller. The baby’s frantic mom catching up soon after. Looks like no harm done: Unbelievable!” Heroine ignored.

Consequently, the author notified Dave of his overt omission, Tweeting, “Dave, re garbage truck driver hero story, u failed to mention the lady who actually stopped the runaway stroller w/ the baby.” Nevertheless, Dave did not take note of the author’s alert even though Dave made six more Tweets before the report ran again.

About two hours after Dave’s reading of the headline story, Aly did the honors with the same clip, supra, almost verbatim, stating, “This garbage truck driver turned hero quickly coming to the rescue. He began honking and  blocking traffic [and] running out…after the stroller. The baby’s frantic mom catching up to him.” Ad libbing, apparently, Aly continued, “She appears to be so freaked out [that] she grabs the stroller and just runs off. He [the driver] deserves a ‘thank you.’ That hero!” Heroine unnoticed–again.

Subsequently, all three co-hosts discussed the stroller story. When Clayton marveled, “There’s multiple cameras on this,” Dave castigated the cameraman for not helping out. A mite more skeptical, Aly mused that the vid may have been from a dash cam. Ironically, with all of the angles, Clayton, Dave, and Aly failed to espy the special lady who rescued the baby with her dog in tow.

F&FW: Wake-up!

Fox & Friends: TNA or “T&A”? [Updated]

May 24, 2012

Brian spanked by Brook beauty.  Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade got his appreciative rump repeatedly slapped this morning as he welcomed former “Hogan Knows Best” reality star and sexy chanteuse Brook Hogan to the program. Promoting TNA’s new Thursday time slot on SpikeTV, Hulk Hogan‘s daughter, the new executive at TNA (Total Nonstop Action) Wrestling executive brought her wrestling lovelies Velvet Sky and ODB for her segment with Brian and his F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy: And, the Brown-Haired-Guy-Who-Isn’t-Steve-Doocy was not disappointed as he took on the scantily clad ladies in a mock match.

When Steve began the “In the Ring with Brooke Hogan” interview (in the middle of the wrestling ring on the sidewalk outside the studio), he asked Brooke about her “new” show. Before she could answer, Brian jauntily interjected, “It’s TNA!” With a suggestive smile, Steve asked, “What does that stand for?”

Knowingly, Brooke answered, “TNA: Total Nonstop Action Wrestling: wagging her finger at Steve, she laughed, “Don’t let your mind go there–even though they’re very beautiful!” When a joshing Steve asked if she were talking about “these employees over here of yours,” Brooke chuckled and Brian interposed, “We’re talking about Velvet Sky and ODB!”

Subsequently, as a busty ODB began to play with Brian’s tie, Brooke joked, “Uh, oh! Uh, oh! I think you got a girlfriend there.” Smiling, Brian riposted, “Well, I’m seeing somebody right now but you never know if it’s gonna really last.” Getting in on the action, leggy, abs-bearing beauty Velvet Sky grabbed his right hand, querying, “Hey, there’s no ring though, right?”: then, espying it on his left hand, she looked at the camera as if at Brian’s beloved [Dawn], declaring, “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!”

When the interview ended, Steve and Brooke went to the ropes as Brian took off his coat to fight his pretty opponents. When the “fight” ensued, Velvet Sky began the contact with a touch to Brian’s arm and then a tap to his posterior. Then, she and ODB took Brian through a demonstration of their moves with a toss into the turn buckle, a choke hold, a shot to the solar plexus, and then a clothes-line hit. Consequently, Brian good-naturedly hit the damp mat on his duff.

Beaming, Brian returned to the fray. Giving him no quarter, Velvet Sky got Brian into a full Nelson and OBD gave him a fake knee to the groin. As Brian feigned a protest to Brooke, Velvet Sky playfully patted him on his tush thrice, saying, “Nice wet pets you got there!” Grinning, Brian agreed, “I know. I do have wet pants.” As Steve stepped in and asked if he were okay, a bemused Brian animatedly answered, “What? I’m, I’m watching Thursday night, I tell you, because I want to see, especially, if you ladies wrestle.”

However, Brian was not done with the lovely Velvet Sky. When she (and OBD) subsequently wrestled one of the Fleet Week seaman volunteers and had him “at her mercy” in an arm twist, Brian decided to intervene. Returning to the inner ring, a beaming Brian dropped to his knees and tackled the short-skirted lovely. Sky vainly struggled to regain her footing: But, Brian’s amorous embrace was sure.

F&F today: T&A. Oops! TNA.

[Author’s aside: Apparently, Velvet Sky was unimpressed with’s Brian’s ardor: after their “rassling” romp, she teased, “Really Brian Kilmeade?? With a take down like the one you gave me this morning you should have your man card revoked!”]

Morris “Moons” Manhattan

May 6, 2012

Dave Briggs: “Still trying to purge that image from my mind.Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris made an unfortunate, indelible impression on his audience and his co-hosts Dave Briggs and Alisyn Camerota this early morn. After dunk or “drunk” tank duds Friday and Saturday (where no F&F or F&FW co-anchor was soaked despite their teases of the respective Cinco de Mayo quiz loser taking a margarita bath), Clayton regrettably peppered the post-holiday program today with mental pictures of his posterior this morning. Arg! To paraphrase Lucy Kaplansky, please don’t let your “Manhattan moon be back tonight”!

After a story on the lunar phenomenon last night, Aly remarked, “Dave Briggs was looking forward with great anticipation to the supermoon.”* When Dave indicated that it did not quite meet his expectations, Clayton jested, “So, he didn’t see it last night. So, this morning in my office, I reenacted it for him.” Grimacing and arching her eyebrows in feigned disgust, Aly asked, “A super moon?”

Without apology, Clayton ribaldly replied, “Mm, hmm. I mean this morning.” Sighing deeply, a smiling Dave looked away and then turned to the viewers, declaring, “Still trying to purge that image from my mind. And, I will be for the rest of the day!” As Clayton beamed broadly, Aly acerbically quipped, “Mm. Yeah, as soon as I stick hot pokers in my eyes.”

Clayton and Dave: Mano a mano? High moon in Manhattan!
