Ed out: Carley In?

December 20, 2019

Queens boy out: Jersey girl in? Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Ed Henry appears to be on his way–given the Tucker Carlson treatment. Both seemed to bristle at being treated to the F&FW trials where they were not given the Anderson Cooper coddling but they had to find a way to endear themselves to the “implorables,” the backbone of America who are not ensconced in the elitist Establishment’s Ivory towers.

Tucker’s trial by fire (where he actually had to eat on air contrary to his sworn attestations aforehand and to suffer other motley indignities to the delight of the Everywo/man) resulted in his becoming an FNC prime-time host of his highly-rated eponymous show. Now, oft decried as the “journalist” co-anchor on F&FW by his beloved tattooed Army co-host serviceman Pete Hegseth, Ed seems set to be on a similar path as the co-anchor with the lovely LSU alum, Sandra Smith, on America’s Newsroom as Bill Hemmer moves on to “green pastures” in the afternoon to take over Shep’s erstwhile grazing milieu.

Perhaps, Fox & Friends (in its various iterations) blond beauty Carley Shimkus from New Jersey will join slightly harder-edged brunette Jersey girl Jedediah Bila on the curvy couch with Pete to sweeten the pot. As longtime fans of F&FW know full well, it would not be the first time that two gorgeous gals ruled the roost in the early FNC weekend morn. Once the comely Kiran Chetry, Jersey-girl Alisyn Camerota, and Julian Phillips made up the two-gal, one-boy ensemble that awakened F&FW fans to greet the dawn.

Much success, Ed! And, hopefully, Carley will fill your footsteps in her sleek, sexy stilettos.

 

Aly: Dave’s “Classy Way to Say Goodbye”

December 20, 2019

Dave’s odd adieu: “My path is unclear but I will search for common ground in 2020.” [Link including vid.] Even more bizarre than his former Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris’ exit from F&FW [link including vid], now former Early Start co-anchor Dave Briggs said farewell to his audience with little-to-no eye contact with his then co-anchor Christine Romans.

As Dave closed Early Start this morning, he said, “Today I say goodbye to CNN, to Excedrin, Visine, & 1:30 alarms [groaning emoji]. Thank you to my incredible family, awesome audience and my talented staff. My path is unclear but I will search for common ground in 2020. ‘That which unites us … is far greater than that which divides us.'” Making things somewhat awkward, Christine patted him on the shoulder and smiled at Dave as he studiously avoided her gaze.

To make things even more awkward, New Day opened with his former FNC F&FW co-host and current CNN New Day co-anchor Alisyn Camerota abruptly remarking, “We will miss Dave Briggs. And, that was a beautiful, classy way to say goodbye.”

Looking down and shaking his head, Aly’s co-host John Berman responded, “He’s a lovely, classy human being. And, I know that we are going to stay friends.”

Before moving on, Aly added, “As are we–since he lives a block away from me.”

Notably, Dave departure from Early Start was icier today than his emotional one in 2012 from F&FW.

Caio, Dave, for now. You had a great run with Aly and Clayton on F&FW. You had a good run with Christine. Hopefully, you’ll have another great run in the near future!

 

 

Tarlov Believes Her Lying Ears

October 19, 2019

“[Hillary] didn’t call Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset.” On Fox & Friends Weekend this Saturday morning, FNC contributor Jessica Tarlov apparently believed her lying ears. Or, maybe, she just had had a really late Friday night.

In a segment subtitled “Clinton Suggests Russians are “Grooming” Gabbard,” F&FW co-host Jedediah Bila played a David Plouffe podcast with Hillary Clinton saying, “I think they…are grooming [Gabbard] to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians…That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up because she’s also a Russian asset.”* [Underscoring added for emphasis.]

Less than a minute later, Jedediah remarked, “For [Hillary] even, I mean, to come out with this type of statement and say you’re a Russian asset. She has no evidence of that. Does this help the Democrats in any way to have her doing this?”

Jessica responded, “Well, if you listen to the interview, she didn’t call Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset.”

Well, Jessica if you listen to the interview carefully, she did call Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset.

“Prevaricating Pete” Gets Engaged

June 16, 2019

Jennifer Rnderstandauche: Jenny Cunningham? This morning Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Pete Hegseth announced his engagement to “Jenny Cunningham” after the “Shot of the Morning” (two photos) showed him with his new beautiful blonde fiancee in the Caribbean.

Pete gushed, “So, a week ago, I asked the most beautiful, wonderful, smartest, toughest, best woman I know on the planet, Jenny Cunningham, to be my wife. We are so thrilled!”…You know I’m so blessed. And, we’re so happy we took a week vacation.” He continued, “And, you know, she’s got three kids; I’ve got three; we’ve got one together, little Gweny. And, we’re so excited for our big whole family.”…We had a great time. She was wonderful.” Turning to the camera, he said, “I love you, babe!” Tellingly, apparently, he remarked, “A lot of people here know Jenn.”

Turning to Pete, fellow co-host Jedediah Bila replied, “Congratulations to you! I love Jenny! So, congratulations! Yeah, Jenn’s the best!” Fellow co-host Ed Henry agreed, saying, “Yeah! She’s great!”*

“Prevaricating Pete”? According to Married Biography (hereafter MB), Pete has been married twice before: First, to Meredith Schwarz (photo of the then just married couple) for five years (2004-2009), and, second, to Samantha Hegseth for seven years (photo of the then just wed couple) and had children named Gunner, Boone, and Rex. According to MB, the  reason for [the] failed marriage, Pete was in an extramarital affair with his Fox Executive Producer Jennifer Rauchet ….With this affair he has a daughter Gweny (or, apparently, a/k/a as Gwayne born August 2017 (photos of the two together, including one with Gweny).”

The reason for any prevarication by Pete may be understandably explained by MarriedWiki reportage, saying, “Pete is head over heels in love with both Jennifer and Gwayne. He is open about his affair with Jennifer but Jennifer is quite secretive as she is not on social media.”
