Juliet Cleaver? Right!

May 11, 2009

Beaver’s mom? In spite of sporting a black dress adorned as if with an aqua apron on FNC’s Live Desk (LD) today, guest host Juliet Huddy is no June Cleaver. The co-host of cancelled The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet, not known for 50’s Babbitt-like mores, seems to embrace today’s new, naughtier ethics. On LD, a transitional show from a.m.’s lighter fare to p.m.’s heftier one, Juliet toyed with Shepard Smith as he previewed an upcoming Studio B segment on future changes to the hospital gown.

Looking at the the often embarrassing patient apparel, Juliet asked, “Tell me about the hospital gowns: I want to know how they are changing.” Shep instructed, “Well, put it on.”  Complying, Juliet teased, “You’re supposed to be naked when you put these things on.” Shep replied, “But you’re not naked at the moment.” As she began to put it on, almost ruefully, she responded, “No, well.”

Then Shep began to explain that the problem with the hotel gown is that one’s “butt hangs out.”  Meanwhile, as she donned it and turned her backside to the camera, she provocatively opened it as if to expose her bare derriere to the viewer and exclaimed, “Whoo-hoo!” Shep smiled at her antics and continued on.

Yes, the former Fox & Friends Weekend co-host is back and roaring to go!

Leave It to Baier

February 18, 2009

FNC’s Special Report anchor Bret Baier did not particularly appreciate being compared by Glenn Beck to Beaver Cleaver today. After Baier’s preview of his program during the Glenn Beck show, Beck commented, “Bret, you look, honestly, you look like somebody that should be on ‘Leave It to Beaver’: You look like you’re eighteen years old.” Visibly miffed, the fresh-faced replacement for FNC’s journalistic pillar Britt Hume deadpanned, “That’s really, that’s really wonderful: That’s a wonderful tease. Thank you very much.”

Beck replied, “I don’t mean that as a slam. I guess that sounded bad, didn’t it?” Trying to dig himself out of the hole that he had dug for himself, he said, “You just look like a clean-cut, all-American, I’m-in-there-pitching-for-you kind  of guy.” Ostensibly accepting his explanation, Bret replied, “Well that’s it: I am.” As an aside, after the segue, Beck commented, “He’s going to hate me.”

In truth, Baier does look a bit like the Beaver.
