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 interview-the man-on-the-street 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.

 

 

F&FW Mystery: Where Was Clayton?

April 24, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “It must be a little confusing.” Yes, it was! Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade took the usual seat of regular F&FW co-host Clayton Morris without any explanation as to where Clayton was. Today, F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy took his screen-left, usual place on the curvy couch as F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson abdicated his alpha male spot for Steve.

Saturday, it was interesting to watch as Brian tried to awkwardly deflect the “elephant in the room” with humor.* As the show began to “Kung Fu Fighting” with martial artists practicing on the patio, Tucker simply greeted his guest co-anchor with a “good morning” by name, and Brian jested, “Good morning! That was Krav Maga: And, that is a [sic] elite form of what seems to me to be mixed martial arts. It’s a way to be lethal by the end of this five-to-seven hour show.” In the second hour,  when F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman proclaimed “Brian Kilmeade in the house today,” he joked, “Yeah, I’m privileged to be here, especially, on National Picnic Day.” As the third hour began, no mention was made of Brian’s taking Clayton’s usual spot on the curvy couch or Clayton’s absence: Rather, they seamless discussed anew Kray Maga after opening to its practitioners jousting on the veranda without need for Brian’s comedy. When the final hour arrived, Anna again introduced Brian, saying, “Everybody, Brian Kilmeade’s in the house today!” Smiling, Brian chuckled, “I had no idea this was four hours!” Subsequently, he joshed that he had come in on his solar private plan. Look away, F&FW fan: No diversion here.

Today, was another day: But, no acknowledgement of Clayton as the other male Fox & Friends weekday co-anchor Steve Doocy took his usual place on the curvy couch, relegating Tucker to Clayton’s beta male position on the right of the screen for the day.** However, today Steve did what Brian did not do, try to explain his presence albeit without revealing the reason for Clayton’s absence.

As the show started today, Steve declared, “Just saying right now, it is not Monday! People are going to being emailing shortly, What are you doing in?” Chiming in, Tucker said, “It must be a little confusing.” Turning to Tucker, Steve responded, “A little confusing to some people and you, in particular, Tucker, because I, you are often on this spot here.” Sounding less than convincing, Tucker answered, “It is one of those little tricks we like to play on Sunday morning just in case you’re hungover”: Even less so, Steve replied, “That’s right. But this is the Sunday before a bunch of big elections, primaries on Tuesday, and so I came in because I needed some OT.”

In the second hour today, Tucker welcomed Steve, exclaiming, “By the way, it is so great to see you! It’s not even a weekday, and you have take time from your busy schedule to come here.” Looking at Steve, Anna exclaimed, “Yes! Thank you for that!” Shrugging his shoulders, Steve answered, “There’s a lot going on!” Once again, less than convincingly, he added, “I, you know, there’s so much going on in politics, you want to be here as much as possible to tell the folks about what’s going on.”

Opening the third and final hours, Steve’s strange appearance on Sunday was not noted nor Clayton’s odd absence explained. An uncharacteristically uncomfortable Brian Saturday and seemingly spinning Steve today make Clayton’s absence all the more mysterious.

Yes, Tucker, it is “a little confusing.” And, Steve, there does seem to be “a lot going on” but not with politics–at least, today. Brian and Steve, it was great to see you both on the curvy couch this weekend: But, where was Clayton?

Ainsley Pleads for Kidney

March 31, 2016

Earhardt: “My mom needs a kidney….She’s O-negative if you want to give a kidney.” Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt got emotional after the final hour opening which included a tease about someone who was “donating to a [total] stranger” his kidney. Ainsley exclaimed, “That’s amazing! My mom needs a kidney. She’s on the list.”

Turning to Ainsley, co-host Steve Doocy queried, “She does?” Ainsley answered, “She does. She has diabetes type-1.” Appearing to tear up as she looked into the camera, Ainsley raised both of her hands toward her audience, pleading, “She’s O-negative if you want to give a kidney.”

Elaborating, Ainsley continued, saying, “I’m not a match. I know.” Looking sympathetically at Ainsley, Steve replied, “That’s hard.” Closing her eyes at the thought and trying to reassure herself, Ainsley responded, “But, it’s okay; she will get one; she’s on the list; and it will be okay.”

Ainsley, the author hopes that your mom gets her life-saving kidney–perhaps, from one of your F&F fans. And, dear reader, if you have a matching blood type and wish to donate to Ainsley mom, you can contact Ainsley at https://twitter.com/ainsleyearhardt.

Smitten Ainsley Sexes It Up

March 29, 2016

For People Magazine’s “Sexiest Vet.” Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt was very demure for her fans but she finally showed some skin for her hunky guest, veterinarian Dr. Evan Antin. Yes, that South Carolina Southern belle was clearly smitten.

As Ainsley opened the show in the first hour, she tugged repeatedly at the hem of her dress–four times (a double tug, for good measure), to be exact–to make sure that it virtually hugged her knees. And, she demurely did so for almost the entirety of the show until she interviewed her beefcake eye candy [vid]: Then, she gladly bared her gorgeous gams for Dr. Antin, chyronned “‘Sexiest Vet Alive’: People Magazine Picks Out Hot Doctor.” No pulling down of the hem then: Perhaps, even a flirty hike!

The irony is that it was really no big deal. The Ainsley of old was never one shy of flaunting her sexy stems: But, when she joined F&F as its official co-anchor, she said that she could not fill very family-friendly Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s shoes but she certainly seemed to try her best to follow in the footsteps of her predecessor who platonically deemed her co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade “brothers.” Likewise, Ainsley has seemed to try to tamp down the sexual tension that characterized F&F with “FoxesE. D. Hill and Gretchen Carlson (not to mention guest co-hosts like Kiran Chetry, Alisyn Camerota, and Anna Kooiman) and their co-anchors Steve and Brian (who famously once swatted Aly’s lovely derriere).

For the reader who whines that Fox & Friends is strictly “NEWS,” s/he should remember that it is not. As the current senior executive vice president of FNC Bill Shine apprised the NYT, F&F “falls under the network’s entertainment umbrella and does not pretend to be straight news.” To whit, F&F is edutainment: Get the news with a fun, flirty twist to start your morn!

 

Ainsley’s Dream: F&F Finally

March 25, 2016

A month later: Too banal for breakfast or just right? Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt has definitely paid her FNC dues: As Glamour.com chronicles, Ainsley did overnight shifts on weekends; updates on the hour on weekday shows, e.g., Hannity; a short-lived stint as co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend; and, most recently, co-anchor of Fox & Friends First. And, finally, Ainsley landed her dream job, co-host of Fox & Friends.

But, now, Ainsley has to show her mettle: She has to prove that she has what it takes to successfully co-host cable news morning champ Fox & Friends. Previously, Ainz failed to do so when she co-anchored F&F Weekend with fellow tyros Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs: As faithful FNC viewers may well remember, former F&FW co-host and FNC utility player Alisyn Camerota had to return to the show to right the F&FW listing ship and to show the boys the ropes. After her subsequent stint as co-host of Fox & Friends First, hopefully, Ainsley has learned what tack to take: If she falters this time, at least,  she has seasoned veterans Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on whom to fall back.

Even though Ainsley may not be the sharpest knife in the F&F drawer, she does seem to be one of the sweetest seasonings in the cupboard. Lately, the Southern belle has seemed to almost ape [split infinitive intended] her predecessor counterpart Northerner Elisabeth Hasselbeck. A little too saccharine for the author’s taste–not too mention a mite too modest post her brief Fox & Friends Weekend gig: But, she does seem to have the best of intentions to make Ailes proud and her viewers happy.

Sex it up, Ainsley! Don’t let the boys be the main reason that your viewers tune in in the morning. That’s never a good thing!

Ainsley: F&F’s New Queen

February 29, 2016

Ainsley Earhardt’s reign begins! Today, Ainsley finally achieved her dream of becoming queen of the curvy couch. On Leap Day 1016, she took the leap from Fox & Friends First co-host to the new co-anchor of Fox & Friends, i.e., the “Fox” in Fox & Friends.

As the show began, co-anchor Steve Doocy announced, “Today, we’re all a part of the “A Team” as in Ainsley because today it’s official: Ainsley Earhardt is the new host of Fox & Friends. Exchanging kisses, Steve exclaimed, “Welcome aboard!” Turning to co-anchor Brian Kilmeade, he remarked, “Come on and give her a kiss”: Subsequently, Ainsley and Brian embraced with kisses on the cheek. Beaming, Ainsley declared, “It’s wonderful to be here!”

As the segment ended, Steve remarked, “Alright, so today starts the Ainsley Earhardt Era here on Fox & Friends.” Introducing a montage of Ainsley’s past work [vid] as Fox & Friends fill-in, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host, Fox & Friends First co-anchor, and FNC reporter, Steve said, “We have put together a package to remind you that you have been watching her on American television right here on Fox for a very long. Watch!” After producers ran it, Brian queried, “Alright, so you are going to stick around?”

Smiling, Ainsley answered, “I’m going to stick around for a long time if you’ll have me.”

Brian responded, “Absolutely!”

Chiming in Steve exclaimed, “That’s great! Welcome aboard!”

Welcome aboard indeed, Ainsley: You’ve earned it!

Kilmeade Comforts Kooiman

February 17, 2016

Brian: “[Fox & Friends] wouldn’t be the same without you.” As F&F concluded this morning, co-anchor Steve Doocy announced, “Well, we want to officially welcome our friend Ainsley Earhardt to the curvy couch.” Chiming in, co-host Brian Kilmeade declared, “Yep, Ainsley…will be starting February 29th: She’ll join us every morning as co-host of Fox & Friends.

Turning to guest co-host Anna Kooiman (who appeared to have a real shot at becoming the new queen on the F&F curvy couch after Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s departure), Brian gave solace to the blond beauty, aptly remarking, “And, Anna, of course, you’re all over Fox & Friends: It wouldn’t be the same without you!” As Steve looked on with a kindly smile, Anna appreciatively answered, “Thank you so much!”

Well played, Brian. Anna, you are indeed wonderful in the center seat on the F&F curvy couch–whether you are there on the weekday or the weekend!

Ainsley: F&F’s New Fox

February 16, 2016

Earhardt: “I am…thrilled to join Steve and Brian on the curvy couch.”  Fox & Friends viewers were tipped off early this morning that changes were afoot by regular F&F fill-in co-host, Anna Kooiman: As the show began today with her in the center seat (with Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth), she  cryptically remarked, “Good morning! We’re all visiting the couch this morning!” (After Elisabeth Hasselbeck left the F&F curvy couch, Anna has usually greeted her F&F viewers with her name as if she might be the future queen of the weekday curvy couch).

According to a press release today by FNC, Ainsley Earhardt has been named the new co-anchor of Fox & Friends and she will make her debut as the official co-host on Leap Day, 2016 (February 29). FNC Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes declared, “Ainsley’s relentless work ethic, congeniality, and enthusiasm for connecting with our viewers…are extremely refreshing. She’s a superb team player and an excellent on-air host.” As for Ainsley, she declared, “I am grateful for this opportunity and am thrilled to join Steve [Doocy] and Brian [Kilmeade] on the curvy couch to deliver Americans their morning news.”

It has been a remarkable ride for Ainsley in her Fox & Friends odyssey.

Ainsley made her debut on Fox & Friends Weekend as a guest co-host in February 2008. On February 28, 2008 (almost 8 years to the date of her future debut as queen of the F&F curvy couch), Ainsley apprised the author that she was just filling in and that FNC would announce changes when they were final: Even though the lovely got into hot water initially with FNC brass for being honest and straightforward with this viewer in various missives, the chastened Southern belle did finally take the reins at F&F Weekend with fellow newbie co-hosts, Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris by her side. But Ainsley’s tenure was short-lived as her callow boys needed a surer hand to guide the F&FW ship, namely, Alisyn Camerota (who had sailed those waters before as F&FW co-anchor).

But, Ainsley has stayed the course: And, she has always been there when Ailes needed her. Ainz has been a cheerful and ready fill-in co-host for Fox & Friends weekday, and she has happily served as Fox & Friends First co-anchor with Heather Childers. She has paid her dues, and Ailes has now rewarded her.

And, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Ainsley’s predecessor hardily approves: She Tweeted, “Congratulations to my #SisterInChrist & #SweetFriend @ainsleyearhardt on the @foxandfriends news!! This #CBO can’t wait to see you shine!”

Congratulations, Ainsley!!

Steve Doocy: “Please laugh!”

February 4, 2016

Jeb Bush: “Please Clap!” This morning, Fox & Friends seemed to signal the end of the Jeb Bush candidacy to be the Presidential standard barrier for the GOP. Not that “JEB!” necessarily needed the hint.

Today, F&F seemed to indicate Bush 3 was toast–as if anyone else needed to know, too. At the bottom of the first F&F hour, producers aired a segment of “The Tonight Show” Jimmy Fallon ridiculing Bush scion “JEB!” as someone who “still knows how to work a crowd.”* In the painful snippet, Jeb said, “I think the next President needs to be a lot quieter but send a signal that we’re prepared to act in the national security interests of this country: To get back in the business of creating a more peaceful world. Please clap!”

After Fallon bowled over in laughter in the clip after the Bush bumble, he derisively remarked, “For the love of God, can I get a, like an awkward cough, anything, a nod? Can you move? Come on!”

When the camera returned to co-host Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade and co-host Sandra Smith, Steve deadpanned, “Boy, that was funny! Please laugh!”

Ducking his head sheepishly, Brian replied, “Right!” Chiming in, Sandra exclaimed, “Uncomfortable!” Coming to the defense of the brother of his sometimes golfing buddy, 43, Brian stammered, “Well, look! In some polls, he’s as high as uh, uh second place in New Hampshire.”

Incredulous, Steve retorted, “Really? What polls?”

Smiling unconvincingly, Brian replied, “He’s coming up!”

Chiding Steve for his frankness, a smiling Sandra chided, “Now! Now!”

Poor JEB! When his only defense is from Kilmeade, a “W” acolyte a la former White House press secretary Dana Perino of The Five, things are not looking up for the Bush dynasty. Or, the GOP establishment.

“Please clap!,” or, “please laugh”! That’s the divide of the GOP–and the FNC.

*Fox & Friends – 02/04/16 (@ 6:32 a.m. ET).

 

Anna: “I’m Happy for the Opportunity”

January 18, 2016

Kilmeade: “You’re doing great!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman does double duty and the Fox & Friends weekday boys seem to like it. Today, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy opened the show, remarking, “Brian [Kilmeade], you know, you and I took off over the weekend, and she’s still here!”

Grinning Puckishly as ever, Brian replied, “It’s unbelievable!”

Smiling sweetly, Steve replied, “Anna has worked about twenty straight days. God bless her!”

Flattered, a chagrined Anna chuckled, “No, it hasn’t been that long! I’m happy for the opportunity! Thanks for having me on the couch!”

Aptly, Brian answered, “Yeah, you’re doing great!”

Indeed, Anna has been doing great as the “girl in the middle” on the F&F curvy couch as of late: And, she seems to be ready to take the reins without any real competition.

But, if Anna does take Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s erstwhile spot on the F&F curvy couch, the obvious question is who will replace the vivacious blond beauty in the F&FW center seat.

Since Anna is reigning on both the F&F and F&FW curvy couches rather than having subs, e.g., Nicole Petallides, Kimberly Guilfoyle, etc., help her out, one begins to wonder if the FNC suits are waiting for F&F First co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt to return from maternity leave and to retake her old spot on the F&F Weekend curvy couch to ease the transition for Anna from the weekend to the weekday.

Between opinionated alpha male Tucker Carlson and peevish beta male Clayton Morris, Ainsley just might be that next sweet Southern belle that can continue to make F&FW work.

Elisabeth Out: Anna In?

January 3, 2016

Fox & Friends: A new year, a new blond beauty? Former Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has left the F&F building: Will F&F Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman take her place on the curvy couch? She certainly seems to have the edge. On the day after Elisabeth abdicated her F&F throne tearfully, Anna seized the queen’s center seat joyfully. Tomorrow, on the real first F&F day of year (after the holidays), Anna will reign anew on the curvy couch between Fox & Friends kings, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.

Whether Anna will be officially crowned the new queen of the Fox & Friends curvy couch remains to be seen. If she is so elevated, her vacancy on the F&FW throne may well be filled with blasts from the past. Just this weekend, former frequent F&FW guest co-anchor Molly Line made a rare appearance Saturday and erstwhile F&FW co-host Juliet Huddy seemed likewise to audition Sunday. However, whilom F&FW co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt would seem to be best positioned to regain her place on the F&FW curvy couch from her perch on the Fox & Friends First leg chairs after she returns from maternity leave.

Let the F&F fun begin!

Elisabeth’s Tearful Farewell

December 22, 2015

Hasselbeck: “This hurts!” Today, Fox & Friends co-anchor Elisabeth Hasselbeck said  a painful goodbye to her co-hosts, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade; the F&F crew; and her fans after a mere two plus years on the curvy couch. The three hours of F&F today were replete with homages to Elisabeth from the likes of Judge Andrew Napolitano, Governor Chris Christie, and GOP front runner Donald Trump. And, Elisabeth was effusive in her praise for, of course, the boss Roger Ailes, for her co-hosts Steve and Brian, and seemingly for every Tom, Dick, and Harry who works for F&F. It was vintage Elisabeth: sweet, cloying so, and seemingly sincere.

The author wishes her well in her position as CBO, i.e., Chief Breakfast Officer, of the Hasselbeck household. Speaking of which, it seems odd, in retrospect, that her own family, hubby Tim and the kids, seemed to have taken a backseat to her work family of Steve, Brian, newsreader Heather Nauert, meteorologist Maria Molina, and the F&F crew today. The faithful F&F fan might have hoped to hear not only her fond farewells to her F&F fam (and fans) today but also a dear, sweet welcome back to full-time work as Hasselbeck CBO from her eagerly awaiting hubs and kiddos–on screen or even on the phone this morn. Alas, it was not to be.

Elisabeth, even though you initially seemed to the author to be an odd choice to follow the footsteps of E.D. Hill and Gretchen Carlson, you have earned your place on the curvy couch–as a sister to Steve and Brian rather than the sexy siren to her couch mates. Much success in the future, Elisabeth!

[Author’s aside: The subtitle, infra, is a quote from Elisabeth re her departure in the final moments of the first F&F segment this morning. F&F – 12/22/15 (@ 6:10 a.m. ET).]

F&F’s Hasselbeck Out: Who’s In?

November 23, 2015

“I’m just waiting on a Friend!” Today, FNC announced that Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is on her way out and that she is expected to exit the early morn cable news champ in late December according to “Variety” magazine. Elisabeth, F&F fans barely knew you!

Only two years ago (September 16, 2013), sexy Survivor celeb and The View’s erstwhile conservative co-anchor Elisabeth became the belle of the ball, replacing flirty 1989 Miss America beauty, Gretchen Carlson, who never really seemed to quite click with her male co-hosts, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. In contrast, Elisabeth was the sweet married hottie that put her boys on the curvy couch on notice from the start that she considered them brothers.

To the author who has followed F&F since the days of E. D. Donahey (a/k/a E. D. Hill), Elisabeth seemed like such a sweet, sincere soul that he could not easily snark or snipe at her–even when she became mawkish and maudlin. Nevertheless, she seemed like an odd choice for F&F‘s then EVP of Programming Bill Shine over the much beloved Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota who oft held court from the center seat on the weekend curvy couch when Gretchen was away. Of course, the long-time F&F fan was not overly surprised since Shine had similarly overlooked E. D.’s obvious successor, the smart, sexy, and charismatic F&FW co-anchor Kiran Chetry.

Perhaps, Shine will bring back comely Kiran: But, it is somewhat doubtful in light of the manner that Kiran was reportedly dismissed. If he is not ready to bring Kiran back into the fold, perchance, he will consider Aly who was always there for him on F&F First, F&F Weekend, and F&F weekday (as a sub, especially during the big news special editions). If Shine wants to stay with the Fox stable, he may want to consider Greek goddess Nicole Petallides who brings sexy back on FBN:AM on a daily basis (as F&FF once did).

[Author’s aside: Best of luck, Elisabeth! Hopefully, you will enjoy much joy, peace, success with the fam in the present and in your career in the future.]

Beefcake Brian: Bare Chested!

November 6, 2015

Elisabeth: “I’m not looking!” Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade proved Thursday that FNC does not just provide viewers cheesecake with its news but, on occasion, a bit of beefcake. Why not give guys and gals a little levity to ameliorate the gravity of the Presidential campaign, the threat of ISIS, etc.?

In a fashion segment featuring Bookatailor.com [in which the men’s custom clothing company brought their auto and the F&F male co-hosts’ pre-ordered custom suits to the Fox News patio] on the FNC patio, co-anchors Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade teased their femme fans with the possibility of Playgirl exposure.* Pointing to a partitioned corner of the patio to help introduce the piece, Steve declared, “We’re going to get dressed behind this black curtain. On the other side of the black curtain is a window to the Green room: the people in the Green room, much like an aquarium, will watch Brian and I get dressed. Chiming in, Brian responded, “Right! Steve, I’m also worried about people who are looking down from the twenty-six flights.”

As the F&F guys changed, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck began to interview the Bookatailor.com rep: However, the F&F boys wanted their attention. From behind the black curtain, Steve exclaimed, “Hey, Elisabeth! Elisabeth, the people in the Green Room are looking at us!” Racily, Elisabeth remarked, “Well, what are they seeing right now?”

Heading toward the black curtain, Elisabeth asked, “How’s the progress? You need me to take any of your clothes out?” As Steve and Brian handed her their clothes through the parted curtains, a shirtless Brian could be seen putting on his white dress shirt. Looking at the camera reassuringly, Elisabeth smiling asserted, “I’m not looking!”

But F&F viewers were. For some of us, it was not the most welcome sight: But, for others, it may well have been. Now, to paraphrase that icon Wendy’s phrase, “Where’s the cheesecake?”

Anna On Honeymoon: “Very Salacious” Huddy Back!

September 19, 2015

Kooiman: “I’m going out with a bang!” And, Juliet is BACK with her own bang! Tuesday, Fox & Friends guest co-anchor Anna Kooiman revealed, “I leave for my honeymoon today! I’m going out with a bang!”* When co-host Steve Doocy queried where she would go, Anna exclaimed, “Italy and Austria!” And, in her place on the curvy couch today sat former F&FW co-host Juliet Huddy.

Even though it has been approximately a year and a half since Juliet graced the curvy couch, she seemed somewhat back in her element–even though Juliet awkwardly defended her friend View co-host Michelle Collins repeatedly for her snarky remark directed at Miss America contestant, Kelly Johnson (Miss Colorado), for her talent competition as to her life-saving work as an RN. Not to mention Collins reportedly impugning nurses reportedly saying, “Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors.”

To boot, Juliet let the guys and gals know that she was still her own licentious self even if she were dressed this morn more like a school marm than an FNC fox. In a “7 Things Every Man Should Know,” co-host Tucker Carlson read, “You [men] are more difficult to live with than you think you are.”** In response, Juliet declared, “It’s accurate: Yes, definitely! That’s why I think people should live with each other before they get married: But, that’s just my very salacious personality.” Pointedly, co-anchor Tucker Carlson replied to the thrice-married cougar, “And, studies yet do show that people who live together before they get married have a higher divorce rate”: As co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris grinned, Juliet laughed, “Which makes a lot of sense!”

Youthful hottie Anna is gone for now: And, the F&FW boys get a blast from the past.

Kilmeade’s “Naked” Misogyny?

September 14, 2015

Sarcastic Brian: “What a shame!” For the “painted [topless] ladies” who feel less safe in Times Square (re a recent attack on the street performers), Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade seems to think that they are asking for it. It was not Kilmeade’s finest hour this morning: And, he should apologize to the topless-body-paint gals who are trying to make a living lawfully–and to all the other women who value their equal rights.

Sounding like a troglodyte, usually au courant Brian opined in a jarringly offensive fashion re women who believe in exercising their legally recognized equal rights by “baring their breasts as men are routinely permitted to do” (according to a 1992 New York Court of Appeals Court decision, People v. Ramona Santorelli and Mary Lou Schloss). Introducing an upcoming story, his co-host Steve Doocy declared, “The painted ladies of Times Square are seeing red, why they say [that] they feel less safe when they are naked in Times Square.” Unsympathetically and chauvinistically, at best, Brian sarcastically responded, “What a shame!”

“What a shame indeed!,” Brian! The apparently practical endorsement of the reported attack on Amanda Roman, a “desnuda” of Times Square, was unseemly and unwarranted. In the author’s opinion, you should apologize to her and to all of the “painted ladies” who are simply exercising their equal rights to earn a living a la the “Naked Cowboy” in Times Square. After all, it is 2015!

[Author’s aside: Perhaps, Kelly File host Megyn Kelly will grill her colleague F&F co-host Brian Kilmeade in his next regular segment with him as she did “The Donald”–or, maybe, not.]

Camerota Gets Naked– Yet Again!

May 25, 2015

Aly Cat: Rowrr! Today, sexy New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota provided her male admirers with a view that they will relish. A Playboy spread? Not quite. But, she did show some skin–the sight of her naked ring finger this morning.

Lest Aly’s amorous acolytes get too excited, she has gone bare before. After an unexplained two-month absence from her then show Fox & Friends Weekend, she similarly doffed her connubial bling when she appeared as a Fox & Friends Friday guest co-host: Of course, Loverboy was performing “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” that Friday for F&F’s 2011 “All-American Summer” concert series that day and the bohemian hottie was ready to party (vid). A few years later, (01/04/14), Aly was at it again as she flashed her tanned nude marital ring finger to her acolytes when she guest co-anchored America’s News HQ.

Now, Aly has changed networks from the irreverent cable news ratings champ network Fox News to the more staid 24/7 cable news pioneer. Now, her hemline often drops too low and her neckline rises too high. But, she is still giving her fans the finger–not the mean one.

“Naked Aly”: It has a certain seductive ring to it. For her fervent votaries, it resounded all the more today. Rowrr: Aly Cat is back–at least, for today!

 [Author’s aside: Re Aly Cat, “ages ago,” when Aly guest co-hosted a segment with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on F&F about with what animal the co-anchors identified most, Aly purred, “Cat.” (For curious F&F fans, Steve answered, “Unicorn,” and Brian declared, “Lion.”)]

Kilmeade: President’s “Badas* Glasses

April 23, 2015

POTUS: “Climate change can no longer be denied.” While Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade may not necessarily concur with the substance of President Obama’s take on global warming and its purported effect on the Everglades in Florida, he did like his style. After the mid-show began today with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon’s Earth Day jokes, a chuckling Brian remarked, “The President was in the Everglades with some nice…some badas* glasses.” [POTUS’s “badas* glasses pic.] As F&F co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck giggled “ooh” at Brian’s surprising choice of words, co-anchor Steve Doocy arched his eyebrows at Brian, deadpanning, “The President’s glasses?” Smiling, an unrepentant Brian haltingly riposted, “Did you see his glasses? They looked–very good!”

Kilmeade & Friends today? No, just a “badas*” Fox & Friends!

CNN’s Mommy Kyra Disses FNC “Super Sperm” Daddy?

January 31, 2015

Phillips: “I love my husband [FNC’s John Roberts] but this man got me pregnant!” On Wednesday, CNN anchor Kyra Phillips appeared on Fox & Friends with her adoring “hubby” FNC correspondent John Roberts to hawk her new book The Whole Life Fertility Plan. On Friday, Kyra ditched her “boyfriend” JD on her own network CNN’s morning show, New Day, to appear with the man who she credited with getting her gravid.

On Wednesday (vid), Kyra played to the Fox News audience and curvy couch co-anchors Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade at the start of her segment, declaring, “You know, I’ve been trying to get on Fox for about ten years: And, as soon as I said, ‘I’m writing about my husband’s super sperm,’ bam, I was booked!” Explaining how she finally came to the decision to get pregnant, she disclosed that she had basically come to her wits end as a woman “approaching forty” who “was going through this horrible divorce,” who “had lost everything” in her home after a pipe burst upstairs,’ and who, while sitting on her stoop thought, ‘Oh, my god…this, this is it; I don’t have a family; [and] I don’t have children.” Gushing over her adoring “hubby,” she declared, “And, thank goodness, I met this wonderful man! After a period of time…he was open to going to fertility.”

On Friday, Kyra had a whole new sales pitch to plug her book to the ND curvy divan viewers and ND (and former FNC anchor Alisyn Camerota): Ditch her lover, and hook up with the doctor who made it all possible.* As she began the segment, Kyra iterated her F&F spiel saying, “I had spent my whole life working on my career, and then all of a sudden, there I was in Iraq covering the war: I was going through a horrible divorce; I came home–my house had flooded because a pipe burst upstairs; I had nothing; and I was sitting on my porch thinking, ‘Oh, my god, it’s never going to happen; and I had a huge anxiety attack.” Pointing to her fertility doctor and co-author of her book, Kyra exclaimed, “And, so, thank god for Jamie!” Giggling, she bawdily declared, “I like to say, ‘I love my husband but this man got me pregnant!”

Kyra’s Canuck “super sperm” JD was F&F “Friendly” Wednesday: But, on New Day, he was NSFW!

*New Day – 01/31/15 (@ 8:48 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: The author refers to John as “hubby” and “boyfriend” interchangeably, supra, because his marital relationship with Kyra seems uncertain: In a Huffington Post interview (05/25/11), he said, “There’s no plan for a wedding. I call her my wife, she refers to me as her husband….at our age, fiancee just doesn’t sound right.”]

Kilmeade: NY Daily News’ “Doocy Diss”

January 30, 2015

Steve disses back: I’m going to tell you what really happened! Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy was not amused by the New York Daily News account of his stay at the Sanctuary Hotel during the recent snow “blizzard.” New York city slickers, this Kansas boy is no “fly-over-country” rube!

Yesterday, after a debunked Politico story on likely Presidential GOP candidate Governor Mike Huckabee, on cue, F&F co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck remarked, “Now, what about this Daily News thing?…They were picking on you. Let’s explain!”*

Elucidating, Steve answered, “It’s another story in the New York Daily News: I picked it up this morning and I was surprised to read [it]. Part of it was true: It said that [co-anchor] Brian [Kilmeade], Elisabeth, and I stayed…at the Sanctuary Hotel on the snow night which is true.”…So, anyway, I’m going to tell you what really happened!”

Elaborating, Steve said, “At dinner that night, I said to Elizabeth, ‘I’m having trouble controlling the light. And, she said, ‘Did you put your card in the wall?’ And, I said, ‘What?'” Continuing, he added that Elisabeth said [that] it was one of those green energy rooms and that you had to do that.

Coming to Steve’s defense eagerly, Elisabeth asserted, “I found out the hard way ’cause I actually walked in: Some lights were on–it was a little dim; the TV was playing some music but I couldn’t get anything else on. So, I thought it was motion sensor [sic]: So, I started dancing in my room, trying to get the lights on! Then, I…saw the little thing where you put your card in.”

Chiming in (in a “fair and balanced” fashion), Brian declared, “I was briefed at the desk.”

Elisabeth replied, “I had no idea!”

In response, Steve exclaimed, “See, nobody told me at the desk! On the way out, I told the concierge, I said, “Hey, by the way, when people check in, you should tell them, ‘you got to put your room key in the wall’–which is crazy, it’s like starting a car, or the room doesn’t work completely right.”

Interjecting (for viewers who had not read the poop on Steve), Elisabeth asked, “But, what was the headline this morning then?”

Illuminating, Steve said, “It said in the Daily News…[that]…I spent the night in the dark because I could not figure out the smart lights. That’s not true! When I walked in, the lights were on, the television was on, the heater was on. And, then it said [that] I thought the blizzard knocked the power which was not true because the lights were on….I knew the lights weren’t knocked out!”

For emphasis,  Steve added, “So, when you read the gossip pages and you go ‘wow,’ could that stuff possibly be true, in this case, no!” And, in a final shot at, perchance, the inaptly named Sanctuary Hotel, Steve acerbically added, “Anyway, don’t talk to the concierge at the Sanctuary Hotel: Blabbermouth!”

*Fox & Friends – 01/30/15 (@ 6:10 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: Re the title, Brian deemed the Daily News gossip about Steve the “Doocy Diss” at the start of the show. (@ 6:01 a.m. ET).]
