Huddy: “Good Riddance”

January 2, 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vanilla Perino: As*, As*, Baby?

March 6, 2015

Or, a**hole, Ed Henry? Today, Five co-anchor Dana Perino and chief White House correspondent Ed Henry celebrated “good times.” Apparently, during the Real Story with Gretchen Carlson (featuring Dana), Ed revealed, “She [Dana] called me an equal opportunity blank–I won’t use the word, I think it starts with an ‘a,’ and it’s not a very nice word.”

Poor Ed should not feel too bad about Dana’s acerbic aspersion. He is in good company: Wannabe rapper “Tiny D” called her co-host and bud Greg Gutfeld an a**hole during a break on The Five about two years ago according to Five co-anchor Bob Beckel. On the other hand, the self-professed “biggest fan” of Bush 43, may have been having a flashback to the day that W infamously called that pesky, impertinent NYT reporter an “a**hole.”

Ed: an a**hole? Probably not–unless he gets on Dana’s bad side!

F&F Fun: Henry’s Holiday Debut

December 24, 2014

Ed throws “nutty” mom under the bus? Straight-laced FNC chief White House correspondent Ed Henry made his big debut on Fox & Friends guest co-host this Christmas Eve. Introducing him to the F&F fans, producers aptly ran a montage of his work, his family life, etc. each hour.*** The well-respected former White House Correspondents’ Association president (2012-2013) was an odd choice to couple with his similarly awkward, au courant male counterpart Peter Johnson, Jr., as bookends to the gregarious, gorgeous guest co-anchor Anna Kooiman on the curvy. However, he performed admirably even if he did throw his “nutty” mom under the proverbial bus.

During a holiday edition segment of “Normal or Nuts” with psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow, Ed began a query, saying, “When my mom visits my house to look after the kids–or just [to] come over for the holidays–she keeps track of what all my neighbors are doing and ends up knowing more about them than I do.” Acknowledging that he was treading on eggshells, Ed continued, “I gotta [sic] be careful here: I have to be diplomatic, doctor. But, is she normal or nuts?”

Dr. Ablow replied, “Well, I applaud your bravery: But, she’s nuts!”

Chuckling with chagrin, Ed exclaimed, “Oh, no!”

As a cuckoo bird sounded in the background, Dr. Ablow elaborated, “Here’s the thing: I want to be gentle with her [because] she could be watching….I think that she may be more interested in trying to define other people, their comings, their goings: It’s a little paranoid.” Mercilessly, he continued, “She needs some self-reflection: she needs to get to know herself, the emotional comings and goings in her life. And, invite me for Christmas or for New Year’s [Day] and I’ll do an intervention: And, we’ll broadcast it.” Digging Ed’s grave deeper, Dr. Ablow added, “She’s really something: What was it like to grow up with her, Ed?”

Trying to salvage his Christmas invitation, apparently, Ed responded, “She’s just reporting on my neighbors: she’s not, she’s not paranoid. But, I still love her. And, and, thanks, Dr. Keith, for the diagnosis.”

Ed, your mom will be having her turkey for Christmas dinner: And, it won’t be the bird!

[Author’s aside: Over the course of the show, Ed revealed that he played first base in Little League baseball; he went to the White House as a lad with his sister Colleen; he married his beautiful wife Shirley at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas (and celebrated with a White House wedding cake “to scale”); and that he has a son Patrick and a daughter Mila.]

Ed Henry Reveals Cook’s Direct Number

July 23, 2010

Transparency in media. During his American Morning segment entitled “She Ordered Sherrod to Quit: Where is Cheryl Cook?,” CNN senior White House correspondent Ed Henry chided the Obama Administration for its lack of transparency today and then inadvertently provided his own. As the popular newly elected president of the White House Correspondents Association board brought viewers into his inner sanctum and let them listen in to a direct call to USDA Deputy Under Secretary Cheryl Cook, he gave them a peek at his personal pad which included the direct line to Cheryl Cook’s office. On his tablet was the name “Cheryl Cook” underscored twice and with the telephone number (202) 720-4581 written next to it.*

In an attempt to verify that the number was indeed that of Cheryl Cook and to interview Cook if possible, the author dialed it. Surprisingly, it went through and an actual person, who did not identify herself or the office at all, answered the phone. When the author asked to speak with Cook, he was quickly redirected to someone else. This person, in turn, sent the author to another who identified the office as that of Cheryl Cook. After requesting again to talk with Cook, the author was transferred to someone else who gave him the e-mail address of Stephanie Chan for media inquiries as to Cook.

Ed Henry: Talking the talk and walking the walk.
