Maria Molina: FNC Loses Another Fox? [Updated]

August 24, 2016

Seriously?! According to FTVLive, FNC meteorologist Maria Molina is leaving Fox News and she will be announcing her exit early tomorrow morning. Reportedly, she is going to Central Michigan University to get her PHD, and she will be working at WJBK part-time in Detroit.

Maria’s departure falls on the heels of the vamooses of hottie Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros, leggy lovely frequent Outnumbered co-anchor Jedidiah Bila, 2013 Miss USA Red Eye co-host Joanne Nosuchinsky, and Fox & Friends Weekend  co-anchor Anna Kooiman. Not to mention Gretchen Carlson: And, who knows about her purported supporter Kelly File anchor Megyn Kelly. At least, former Victoria’s Secret model The Five‘s comely Kimberly Guilfoyle, Fox & Friends First co-hosts lovely Heather Childers and beauty Abby Huntsman; and Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhart are still at Fox News–at least, for now.

Bill Shine, if you keep losing the “Foxes” post Roger, you will be left with only “Friends.” And, for FNC fans, this is not a good thing. Get it together!

H/t J$, for your “heads up”!

Update: Maria announced her exit indeed on Fox & Friends this morning at 6:32 a.m. ET. (08/25/16).  Fox & Friends Tweet (including vid): https://twitter.com/foxandfriends/status/768761326210473985.

“Aussie” Anna: Traitor! ;-)

August 19, 2016

What the h*ll is going on with Fox News now that Roger has left the building?! Hottie Outnumbered co-anchor Andrea Tantaros has left the FNC air, leggy frequent Outnumbered co-host Jedidiah Bila followed suit; and now the lovely Alisyn Camerota’s sexy successor Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman is abdicating her reign on the curvy couch to follow hubby Tim Stuckey back to the “Land Down Under.” And, now fans are left only with brainy Tucker Carlson and nerdy Clayton Morris: What is the F&FW fan to do?

Who knows? Unless FNC boss Bill Shine brings back the thrice ruling queen of F&FW Alisyn Camerota (or her former F&FW co-host Nepali beauty Kiran Chetry), installs luscious F&F First newbie Abby Huntsman, or “steals” Greek goddess FBN:AM co-host Nicole Petallides, it may well be time to take the weekend off from watching Fox & Friends‘ weekend edition.

Bill, faithful F&FW fans do not watch four hours of the show for the “Friends.” No offense, Tucker and Clayton: But, they watch it mainly for the “Fox.” Make it happen, Bill!

As to F&FW‘s latest sweet, beautiful, vivacious “Fox” Anna, this evening she Tweeted, “Friends! I’m moving to Australia! My husband landed a new job in Sydney. So proud of him! But will miss you so much.” According to TVNewser, Anna’s last day is the 5th of September.

Thanks for the memories, Anna! You’ll truly be missed, too!

 

F&FW Flowers Hide Anna’s Sexy Stems

August 13, 2016

Two floral arrangements: Two fetid faux pas. Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman‘s gorgeous gams were bizarrely hidden this morning by two floral centerpieces as she reigned as queen of the curvy couch. Unless it is bedecked in Valentine’s Day or the like table adornments, the usual F&FW transparent table is bare of flowers or any other centerpieces: Today, it was different. Without explanation, producers had placed a bouquet of a miscellany of mundane flowers in what almost appeared to be a Mason jar during the first half hour: After the first thirty minutes were over, producers replaced it with a somewhat prettier vertical “Kleenex-box” vase that matched Anna’s turquoise dress and that featured a wannabe sexy Georgia O’Keeffe-like flower.

F&FW, Anna’s lovely legs need no visual occlusion on the curvy couch: Rather, they should be fearlessly flaunted for her F&FW fans. To boot, they are assuredly more aesthetically pleasing than either of those pathetic floral arrangements that dared to compete with them this morn. F&FW may want to be post Roger: But, they better never be post Roger’s instincts.

Break a leg, F&FW–in a good way!

 

F&FF’s Freaky Friday: No Legs Day

July 29, 2016

That was weird! Fox & Friends First co-hosts Heather Childers and Abby Huntsman’s gorgeous gams were nowhere on display today for their fervent fans. Both F&FF shows started with the news stories of the San Diego policemen being shot and Secretary Clinton’s Dem Presidential nomination: Neither hour started with Abby and Heather’s usual warm welcoming of their audience to the show as they stand flaunting their finery from head to toe.

To boot, on the half hour, they failed to so welcome their viewers as usual: Rather, producers picked an extraordinarily odd small shot of the heads and partial torsos of Heather and Abby as they tossed to their first reporter. It looked like a color film negative that took up only half of the screen with a small part of that screen above them and a large part of it below with a nondescript graphic. Strange!

It was a fast forward day for F&FF: Sorry, Abby and Heather! Step it up, producers!

Uncensored Dana: “Fu**ing Camel”!

July 18, 2016

Greg: “Could you watch your language, young lady?” Riding a camel with her The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino sounded a mite like her former co-host Bob Beckel today. In a vid clip aired from their visit to the Columbus Zoo on their bus tour to Cleveland, Ohio, for the GOP Presidential convention, Dana got somewhat salty in her language. After The Five co-anchors watched the “free-range” lions who were not to be fed according to the zookeeper’s orders to Greg, Dana mounted the dromedary and then Greg struggled mightily to get on behind her.

Bizarrely, or, perchance, after a few drinks of her fave vino, Dana unsympathetically exclaimed, “It isn’t, it’s not a fu**ing camel!”*

Chastening his usually chaste co-host on her vulgarity but not her inanity, Greg irascibly retorted, “Could you watch your language, young lady?”

Strangely, producers did not bleep out Dana’s obscenity. But, perhaps, they wanted to proclaim to viewers that Dana is no priggish prude: Rather, she can get naughty on occasion–but, probably, not quite like her comely co-anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle!

*The Five – 07/18/16 (@ 5:40 p.m. ET).

Gretchen Out: Bitter?

July 10, 2016

Sues Roger Ailes: Her “lawyers…say Ailes is the ‘Bill Cosby of media.'” Wow! Former Fox & Friends co-host and anchor of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson, Gretchen Carlson, is apparently not amused that her tenure is over: Reportedly, she is suing FNC honcho Roger Ailes for sexual harassment after her contract was not renewed.

According to the Daily Mail, Gretchen said that Ailes asked her to “turn around so he could view her posterior.” Furthermore, the NYT reported that Gretchen alleged that Ailes had eyed her in his office and called her sexy and “explicitly asked [her] in his office for a sexual relationship.”

In response, Gretchen’s former female FNC colleagues pushed back. “On the Record” anchor Greta van Susteren said that she has “‘absolutely never’ seen …Ailes act inappropriately toward women” and described Gretchen as “a very unhappy employee that lost her job” according to The Wrap. According to the same publication, hitting Gretchen even harder, “Justice with Judge Jeanine” anchor Jeanine Pirro declared, “I know know the man. I have been in a room with him. He has never said or done anything [inappropriate].”: Taking aim at her former FNC colleague, Jeanine added that the lawsuit was “absurd” and remarked, “I don’t know that she, the plaintiff [Gretchen], even has a friend in that building.” On a softer note FBN anchor Maria Bartiromo said, “It’s not in keeping with what I know, and my experience at Fox” according to Variety. Morever, The Five co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle chimed in (according to TVNewser), “Total disbelief. I’ve known Roger Ailes for 15 years and I have been treated with the utmost professionalism and respect: He’s been a fantastic mentor in television for me.” To boot, in her HuffPo article, former Fox & Friends First co-anchor Kiran Chetry, who had a self-proclaimed “parting [that] was ugly and public,” defended Ailes, saying, “Over the years at Fox, I met with Roger Ailes one-on-one many times and never once did Roger ever make me feel uncomfortable or put forth any sexual advances.”

According to the Hollywood Report, Ailes hit back hard at Gretchen, saying:

“Gretchen Carlson’s allegations are false. This is a retaliatory suit for the network’s decision not to renew her contract, which was due to the fact that her disappointingly low ratings were dragging down the afternoon lineup. When Fox News did not commence any negotiations to renew her contract, Ms. Carlson became aware that her career with the network was likely over and conveniently began to pursue a lawsuit. Ironically, Fox News provided her with more on-air opportunities over her 11-year tenure than any other employer in the industry, for which she thanked me in her recent book. This defamatory lawsuit is not only offensive, it is wholly without merit and will be defended vigorously.”

Gretchen and her fellow femme fatale predecessor co-hosts on Fox & Friends have always been sexually empowered since the fun, flirty, racy, E. D. Hill made her debut in 1998: And, for those that embrace it, that is modern liberated feminism, women unashamed of their potent power of feminine pulchritude and seduction and are not afraid to embrace it. E.g., Gretchen seemed to tout this “new” feminism in her somewhat tempting “twerking” and awkward aping of “scandalous” Miley Cyrus on F&F. Also, naughty Fetchin’ Gretchen had her sultry take on sharing her momcave with Chris Wallace, nipple clips, and licked thighs on F&F (02/04/11). Not to mention Gretchen’s saucy flirtation with Chris Wallace when the Fox News Sunday host  exclaimed, “Let me just say…I was thinking how to clean this up. Gretchen, when you were wearing that cowboy hat and smoking that cigar you looked fetching.” (In response, Gretchen, re-enacted and accentuated her sultry cowboy/cigar look for Chris to which he responded, Oh, Mama! You should take that home for your husband tonight.”) Maybe, Ailes was having fun with that vibe from Gretchen–if in fact he said what he purportedly said.

Nevertheless, a woman or a man’s employment, advancement, etc. should never be predicated on her/his employer’s reaction to their employee’s sexual power. Nor, should the employee ever be subject to his/her unwanted advances.

F&F: Just a Little More S&M?

July 6, 2016

Bikinis and Roseanne! Yesterday, Fox & Friends almost repented of their sadism and sadomasochistic aural assault on their viewers: Over Independence Day weekend, producers had subjected F&F fans to repeated airings of clips of Roseanne Barr’s cacophonous singing of the “Star-Spangled Banner.” In the penultimate segment Tuesday, they treated fans to the visual delight of gorgeous models sexily sashaying [vid] in fashion designer Kandice Pelletier‘s killer bikinis in studio in celebration of the 70th anniversary of Louis Reard’s bombshell St. Tropez-inspired swimwear.

Perhaps, in a less than subtle dig at Carpe Diem, producers began the final segment, “Before It’s History, It’s News” with Roseanne Barr’s wretched rendition of the national anthem. And, it was the FIFTH of July: But, hopefully, it was one last lash from producers a la Fifty Shades of Grey this year. Not all of us enjoy the pain: But, of course, some naughty F&F producer may just want a good spanking.

F&F Tortures Fans

July 4, 2016

With Roseanne Barr’s “Star-Spangled Banner.” Even if one is a fervid fan of Fox & Friends, s/he had good reason to turn off the show and spend time with his/her family during this holiday weekend. For some seemingly sadistic/sadomasochist reason, F&F producers repeatedly subjected viewers to an abbreviated Rosanne Barr’s chalk-on-the-black-board rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner over Independence Day weekend: Perhaps, F&F fans should have turned off their TV’s and spent that time with their loved ones even had they not been subjected to this horrid aural offense.

Such producer impertinence reminded the author of the time when CNN’s Carol Costello told her American Morning audience, “I hope none of you were watching on Christmas Day because you actually do have a life.” Yes, F&F, your viewers have a life, and we were watching: But, please don’t ever subject us to Rosanne Barr’s screech again. It may not be waterboarding, F&F: But, it was torture.

At least, F&F producers, you gave us Abby Huntsman‘s Proud American collaboration with American Young this morning to celebrate Independence Day. In fact, Abby wasn’t that bad: And, she looked even better. But, no more Rosanne singing ever!

F&F: “F**king” Gaffe

June 24, 2016

Smiley apologizes. Talk show host Tavis Smiley had some Fox & Friends fans frowning this early morn. In a segment where Smiley touted his new co-authored book, Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Day, he said, “I was a fan of Michael like most of us: And, the day that Michael died, I was just gobsmacked because I had already purchased my tickets, my concert tickets, my plane ticket, hotel reservations to go to London to go to the old [inaudible] to see his final concert. I was ready to go!”* Elaborating, he remarked, “And, I wanted to know as a fan ‘what happened from the moment you said you were going to come back, “this is it, one more time,” sixteen weeks later, you’re dead. My ultimate question is ‘Why are you f**king’–you know, pardon the phrase–‘why are gone so soon?'”

Co-anchors Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt and guest co-host Pete Hegseth simply ignored his obscenity. Concluding the interview, Steve shook Smiley’s hand saying, “Tavis, always a pleasure!” Some fans, especially parents, of young children, may have heartily disagreed. But, at least, Smiley did apologize for his gaffe: Unfortunately, Steve, Ainsley, and Pete did not. Oops!

Andrea Tantaros Nude

June 19, 2016

Tantaros: How much do I want to share with America? Missing Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros is nowhere to be found on Fox News as of late. Perhaps, she is still “Tied Up in Knots” as her latest book suggests. And, naked in bed to boot.

Sitting in the leg chair on Outnumbered on the right usually, Andrea has always commanded rapt attention in her sexy short skirts and in her killer high heels. But, what else would one expect from the purported love of former Chili Hot Peppers rocker and current Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro? Now she has disappeared: Rumors are she was taken off the air, at least, for now, possibly because of her purported Trump leanings.

For Andrea’s acolytes, her absence is a whit unwelcome. Perhaps, on occasion, their disappointment is ameliorated in part when the leggy Jedidiah Bilah makes her too rare appearance.

But, take heart, Andrea devotees. One can enjoy her 2012 November Playboy appearance, er, her interview–sorry, lads– with John Meroney. Or, read her “Tied Up in Knots.” And, for Andrea’s more avid acolytes, they can be seduced by her siren coos on a future audio book.

Less than a year ago on Outnumbered, Andrea bared herself for her fans during a segment subtitled, “Get Your ZZZZZs with No Undies.”* Presiding over that very segment, occasional co-host Jedidiah Bilah revealed, “You know what’s funny? I can’t sleep naked for some reason. I have to have my Spiderman pajamas on: Don’t worry, they’re very sexy! But, I can’t sleep in the nude–this is why I’m single.” Turning to Andrea, she racily remarked, “I can’t sleep in the nude. Can you? Have you mastered this, this, this?”

Saucily, Andrea answered, “You know, I’ve been pondering this for the entire show: How much do I want to share with America? And, all I’m going to say is ‘yes.'”

FNC’s “Outnumbered”: Andrea’s missing! “Tied Up in Knots”–and sleeping in the nude!

Aly Oops: “Muslim World, Christian World AND the Baptist World”

June 17, 2016

Camerota confused: Blame it on Westboro? This morning, New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, asking her how her meeting with the President went yesterday.* Sheehan replied that she had not because “‘they’ were concerned that all the local elected officials would want to meet with the President.” Then the seemingly wounded Sheehan laughed, “I’m like, wait a minute! I’m the, I’m the gay one! I actually didn’t get to yesterday.” Sympathetically, Aly answered, “I’m sorry to hear that.”

Later, in the interview, Sheehan expressed her optimism as an LGBT activist of thirty years, saying, “I really feel a shift…I’ve dealt with a lot of people whose hearts and minds were really set in a way that was not in favor of my community. But, what I’ve seen is really a shift in the faith community.” She continued, “They have been very upset about some of the protests that have been talked about happening here: They say, ‘This is not reflective of our religion.'” Subsequently, she said that the Christian ministers had reached out to the imams and the Muslim community and that it was the first time that she had seen that: Clarifying herself, she said that they had had such interfaith groups (in the past) but that they had been “kind of…the lefty churches…the Unitarians…but now I’m talking about the Baptist Church folks locally talking to our Muslim community which I think is great!” Subsequently, Sheehan added, “And, they’re saying that this is about love and we need to embrace our LGBT community and I’ve never ever heard that before. So, I really do feel there’s a change and a shift because of this tragedy.”

Raising her eyebrows, Aly remarked, “That is a really nice silver lining, Commissioner, because we had heard rumors that there might be these sick protests from that odious fringe group who protests.” Interjecting, Sheehan stammered, “I’m not going to, I’m not going to mention their name because I find them so disgusting.” Concurring, Aly replied, “I’m not either.” Elaborating, Sheehan asserted that they [apparently, Westboro Baptist Church] had promised that they would not do a protest.

In response, Aly concluded, “We have seen lots of extremists…who bastardize a religion and claim it for their own in order to do vile things. And, we pray that that does not happen during the funerals down there. But, it is very heartening and inspiring to hear that the Muslim world and the Christian world and the Baptist world are all coming together.”

Aly, hopefully, love will conquer all as the Orlando victims are laid to rest, and, hopefully the WBC will not disrupt the funerals for the family and friends as they grieve their now deceased loved ones. But, as to the “Christian world and the Baptist world,” the world renowned evangelist Baptist Billy Graham would be rather surprised that you did not include his denomination in the “Christian world.” Blame it on Westboro?

Outnumbered! Sans Andrea NOT!

May 31, 2016

Where the “H-E-double hockey sticks” is Andrea Tantaros? The absence of the sharp, scintillating FNC hottie with the high hemline and the killer heels on Outnumbered is duly noted: The occasional presence of the sexy Kimberly Guilfoyle will sometimes cause the casual male mind to “misremember” her potent presence as some allegedly steroid-primed pitcher once put it. But, the team of Sandra Smith, Harris Faulkner, and who ever happens to be the other two gals du jour–not to mention the #oneluckyguy on the couch–just does not cut it.

“Outnumbered” without its Greek Goddess? Not the best of views! Perhaps, it is time to watch “Fifty Shades of Grey”–or “Eyes Wide Shut” instead! And, if you’re an Andrea acolyte, buy “Tied Up in Knots” for good measure!

Bring her back, Bill Shine! And, quit losing our loveliest ladies–e.g., Kiran Chetry, Alisyn Camerota, and now, Andrea Tantaros! Seriously!

Hottie Huntsman’s F&FW Debut

May 8, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “I hope not the last time!” Today, Fox & Friends First co-host Abby Huntsman finally made her debut on the F&F Weekend curvy couch. As the show started, Abby turned to her co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris, remarking, “First time. Are you guys going to be nice to me today? Are you going to treat me well?” Clayton answered, “We’re going to be lovely to you!”

And, Clayton and Tucker were: As well as they should have been. After all it was Abby’s virgin appearance on the F&FW vaunted curvy couch as co-anchor. Abby may not have been the fun, effervescent, flirty Anna Kooiman: But, she wasn’t bad either. She may have flubbed the pronunciation of Saskatchewan once: But, she was more than competent, and she remembered to dance out the segment oft enough for the jib camera–and her fans.

In the author’s opinion, Abby gets a “B” in her first appearance on the curvy couch as F&FW co-anchor. The waifish beauty is a budding natural FNC fox: She is breathtakingly gorgeous, and she seems to be rather comfortable in front of the camera. However, the F&FW viewer could sense that she was not entirely at ease today. But, it was her first time.

Kudos, Abby! You did well today. It was your first time on the curvy couch: And, if F&FW fans have their way, it will definitely not be your last.

[Author’s aside: Re the subtitle, supra, at the beginning of the third hour, Tucker introduced Abby, saying, “Abby Huntsman joining us on the couch for the first time: I hope not the last time! It’s been great.]

 

New Day NSFW? “MotherF**ker”!

May 5, 2016

Oops! This morning, New Day was definitely NSFW–at least, for a moment. As the penultimate segment of the first hour concluded, co-host Alisyn Camerota teased her viewers to an upcoming “Prince’s Final Hours” segment with a bumper video compilation clip from Prince: Unfortunately, the final vid was FUNKNROLL! Just before commercial, Prince sings, “Another motherf**ker you’re.”*

Yikes! Not exactly suitable for children as they are getting ready for school.

Strangely, neither Aly nor guest co-host John Berman apologized to their New Day audience.

Nauert’s Naked Frolic

May 4, 2016

Naughty Heather confesses. Fox & Friends news reader Heather Nauert really heated things up for her viewers today on the F&F plaza: she revealed that she had once pulled a Lady Godiva in a Volkswagen bug–with the top down for all to see. And, she did not seem to mind that Peeping Tom.

During a “Top Adventure Vehicles for  the Summer” segment [vid], the F&F co-hosts (Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade) and Heather helped showcase the vehicles with auto expert Mike Caudill on the patio. When Heather’s turn arrived, she sat at the wheel of a 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune, exclaiming, “Come on over! Wooh!” As he walked over to jump in, he said, “This is a throwback vehicle: This takes us back, right?” Apparently, it did indeed.

Before Caudill could even close the door, Heather saucily asked, “Ah! Can I tell you the last memory of this car?” Before he could answer, Heather racily revealed, “I lost on a dare to my best friend who had this car and I had to ride in it naked! Hiding her head in her hands in mock shame and then looking up with a sexy smile, Heather giggled, “With the top down!” Turning to an allured Caudill, Heather risquely continued, “And, we pulled up next to my Latin teacher.” Then, she laughed robustly–as if she were a ribald German barmaid serving up copious drafts with verboten views.

Trying to compose himself, Caudill did not reply instantly to Heather’s siren song: Rather, he simply continued, saying, “So, this is a Volkswagen Beetle Dune.” Chuckling, Heather replied, “You’re like ‘anyway’!” Finally, responding, Caudill exclaimed, “I know. I’m like she just said that she’d go naked in this thing!…How do I transition off that?”

Transition? Hmm. Lady Godiva rode on her steed: Likewise, Lady Heather rides in her Beetle! Look out, boys: Here she comes!

Another New Day–Again!

May 1, 2016

Michaela says goodbye. Friday, New Day co-host Michaela Pereira called it quits: Now, Chris Cuomo is the last original co-anchor left standing. CNN honcho Jeff Zucker can try again to make that winning team that can give Fox & Friends a run for the money–or, at least, come in a respectable second.

Last week, CNN seemed to want to ease Michaela out the New Day door unlike its ceremonious ditching of another original co-host Kate Bolduan when she was on maternity leave by Zucker: Nevertheless, the slow sendoff of Michaela from New Day seemed like a painful display of inane maudlin, mawkish sentiment. The shtick appeared to be a pouting Chris about Michaela “abandoning” the show; a reveling Michaela in the “pain” that her departure caused Chris; and a laughing Alisyn Camerota at their silly departure dance.

Before Michaela exited the stage, she may have been billed as a coequal anchor but the loyal New Day viewer knew the pecking order: Chris was the alpha male; Aly was the alpha bitch (in a good way); and Michaela was still along for the ride. It did not go unnoticed by ND fans that prime anchor Chris would open the show in the first hour; secondary host Aly would intro it the second hour; and Chris would lead in the third and final hour: Tertiary anchor Michaela would tend to do the personal interest stories and racially sensitive ones.

Now that Michaela has “left the building,” the auditioning will begin–hopefully, for both males and females. Early Start co-hosts Christine Romans and John Berman would be a good place to start: No-nonsense Christine guest co-hosted ND predecessor American Morning regularly and quick-witted John Berman is oft a guest co-host of New Day. Of course, Aly and Chris might be a good duo a la Kiran Chetry and John Roberts (the last official co-hosts of AM).

Good luck, Michaela, as you move to HLN to host your own to-be-announced morning show! And, good luck Aly, Chris, and Zucker as you craft anew a New Day!

Ainsley Approves Attack on Reagan?

April 30, 2016

Earhardt: “You kinda have to find a little humor in some sad things that happen in life.”  Actually, Ainsley, you don’t, especially when that humor is at the expense of the victims themselves, including those victims of dementia such as President Reagan.

Last Thursday (April 30), Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt signaled her approval of Will Ferrell’s starring in and producing a comedic movie that purportedly would mock the now deceased former President Ronald Reagan in his final term as President as being addled by dementia although evidence suggests otherwise according to Reagan’s White House physicians (New Yorker). Ironically, Friday, after fallout from Reagan’s family and other Alzheimer’s victim advocates, the besieged flagging actor Ferrell announced through a spokesman that he would “not [be] pursing this project.”

Introducing F&F co-anchor Steve Doocey‘s man-on-the-street-interview segment (subtitled “A Laughing Matter? Will Ferrell to Star in Comedy about Reagan”), co-host Brian Kilmeade sarcastically said, “So, we told you earlier that Will Ferrell’s going to be producing and will be starring in a movie as Ronald Reagan….And, it’s going to be a comedy, Steve: And, it’s going to be a comedy because it’s so funny that Ronald Reagan lost his memory!”

As the segment concluded, Ainsley remarked, “Steve, I just think a lot of people will go see it because they like Will Ferrell: I think they expect it to be funny. Shaking her head “no” as if she did not believe a word that she was saying, she added, “And, you kinda have to find a little humor in some sad things that happen in life.”

But, Ainsley, that “little humor” should never be at the expense of the victim. And, if so, the heartless comedian becomes the real joke.

Aly Honored by NOIAW

April 16, 2016

Camerota: “You Sexy Thing”! Today, FOX-y CNN New Day co-anchor Alisyn Camerota was honored by the National Organization of Italian American Women at their 35th Anniversary Luncheon today: The NOIAW has not released the reasons for the honor on their FB site yet. But, Aly’s achievements speak for themselves: As her faithful fans know, the Italian lovely was thrice Fox & Friends Weekend co-host (FNC) and is now New Day co-host–not to mention her stints with NBC and ABC.

Today, Alisyn’s lovely and loyal personal assistant Jennifer Rivera seemed rightly pleased, twice Tweeting, “Couldn’t be prouder of @alisyncamerota. [Hand clap emoji]….#2016NOIAWHonoree.” For good measure, she included a seemingly celebratory photo of the two together in her post.

Congratulations, Aly!

[Author’s aside: Re “You Sexy Thing,” in the subtitle, that sensual song was the first one that Aly and her hubby Tim Lewis danced to at their wedding: Unfortunately, she seemingly deleted a vid of that special moment from her Fox & Friends Weekend “In the Green Room” blog.]

Jenna Lee & Hubby SEAL’s Pup

April 10, 2016

Liberty Josephine Babin arrives! Friday, The Five co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle gleefully announced the advent of the daughter of Happening Now co-anchor Jenna Lee and her hubby, retired Navy SEAL Lt. Cmdr. Leif Babin [NYT wedding profile of Jenna and Leif]. At the end of the show [FNC vid], Kimberly proclaimed, “Well, I have a very exciting ‘One More Thing’ today.”*

Gleaming with joy, Kimberly continued, “Super delighted because we have a new baby in the Fox News house. As a photo of the newborn aired, she exclaimed, “Yes, indeed! That is Liberty Josephine Babin and that is the beautiful, beautiful daughter of our very own Jenna Lee and Leif. We are super excited for them.”

Elaborating, Kimberly revealed, “Born eight pounds, five ounces on Tuesday. And, her name was chosen many years ago during a phone conversation between Jenna and Leif. And, her daddy was in Iraq, deployed there….And, Jenna at that time when she was talking to Leif, [she] was looking at the Statue of Liberty….And, the middle name is in honor of her great grandmother.”

Congratulations, Jenna and Leif!

[Author’s note: Jenna and Leif’s son, Brian Marc [nicknamed Trace (pic)] now has a little sister.]

Trump Addles Aly

April 7, 2016

And Confuses Cuomo!  Daftly, New Day co-anchors Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo laughed uproariously at The Donald after a clip wherein Trump instructed his supporters about the proper spelling of his malignant moniker for his GOP Presidential opponent Ted Cruz (“Lyin’Ted”). Unfortunately for Aly and Chris, they ironically gave their fans a laugh–at their expense.

As the “B block” of the first hour began, vid ran of Trump supporters chanting, “Lyin’ Ted, Lyin’ Ted, Lyin’Ted”: Responding, The Donald declared, “He is Lyin’ Ted….But, you have to spell it right: It’s L-Y-I-N apostrophe, Lyin’ Ted!”*

As the vid ended, the camera honed in on Aly and Chris, who laughed heartily with their shoulders heaving in simpatico. Chuckling, Chris said, “We’re trying to figure out why Trump wants it spelled the right way. I said, ‘Maybe he trademarked it or something like that.'” Chiming in, Aly replied, “Since when he’s a stickler for spelling? I was confused about that one.”

Actually, it is quite simple, Aly and Chris. Remember the homophone? Trump wants his listeners to think of Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted.” Not “Lion Ted.”
