Dancing Queen: Janice Dean

May 17, 2009

Today Fox & Friends co-host Alisyn Camerota, “Baby Got Back” dancing queen, threw her tiara to Janice Dean, the “Weather Machine.” After the author bemoaned Aly’s unexpected refusal yesterday to bust a full-body Thriller move at meteorologist Rick Reichmuth’s request, happily, F&F did another Burger King/Spongebob “I Like Square Butts” ad segment.* However, this time Aly and her co-anchor Dave Briggs remained sitting on the curvy couch while moving to the music and Clayton just sat there with eyes impishly askance.

Nevertheless, when the trio segued to the maternal meteorologist on the sidewalk outside the studio, she began to gyrate sans music while doing some of her signature steps. After she gave her weather report, she again jauntily jigged without an air and laughed, “Where’s the music?” When the producers finally piped out Sir Mix-A-Lot’s tune, Janice really started shaking her groove thing a la her ante-mom days.

“Baby Got Back” Day

April 18, 2009

“I like big butts and I cannot lie!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts Alisyn Camerota, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris could not resist these infectious strains of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” As the tempting tune played, the F&F trio got off the curvy couch and did their booty dance. Even conservative columnist Cal Thomas couldn’t restrain himself.

After a segment on the controversial Burger King commercial that celebrates Spongebob to the altered lyrics of “Baby Got Back” (e.g., “I like square butts and I cannot lie”), the co-hosts began to animatedly move to the music. Then Aly and Dave stood up and started jauntily gyrating with their backs to the audience as they segued to meteorologist Rick Reichmuth.

It got even more spirited when Rick’s weather report concluded: All three co-hostsĀ  got up and did their booty boogie. However, wisely, Dave and Clayton backed away and gave Aly the floor. She did not disappoint: The Italian dish happily became the camera’s cynosure and the Italian dish saucily shook her groove thing with reckless abandon.

As to Cal, he was caught earlier doing a few disco moves to “Baby Got Back” as he sat in his chair awaiting his on-air appearance.** After playing the vid for the audience, interviewer Dave apologized for doing that to him. Cal responded, “No, no, it’s great; it’s fun; [and] it shows that white people have rhythm, too.”
