Jenna Lee Returns

July 18, 2011

“Back for good–for now.” Happening Now co-host Jenna Lee was radiant today as she returned to her FNC show from her honeymoon with new hubby Leif Babin, a Navy SEAL and Fordham law student. Welcoming the auburn beauty back heartily, co-anchor Jon Scott facetiously queried, “Anything big happen while you were gone?”* Shrugging her shoulders demurely, Jenna joyfully replied, “Thank you very much. You know, got married, went on a honeymoon but now I’m, I’m back: Back for good–for now.”

Sorry, boys, one of Maxim‘s “TV’s 10 Hottest News Anchors” and Ben Stein’s favorite money honey, “the heart-stoppingly beautiful” Jenna Lee, is now off the market. To boot, after an almost three-year, cross-country courtship, it sounds as if the thirty-one year old lovely may be down to serious connubial business. I.e., Jenna’s maternity leave not too far around the HN corner?

Congratulations, Jenna & Leif!

Jenna Happening Now

July 8, 2010

Fox Business News babe Jenna Lee has been chosen to replace the departed Jane Skinner as co-host Fox of News’ Happening Now effective July 12 (Monday) according to TVNewser.* Ben Stein’s favorite money honey, the “heart-stoppingly beautiful, ultrayoung and cute Jenna,” is no stranger to HN as a contributor and has exhibited there her sassy, sexy side that may bode well for HN. Even though Jenna does not provide much needed literal color to Fox News’ morning co-host palette, hopefully, Jenna will add a new vivid, vibrant hue to FNC’s most boring morning show.

Good luck, Jenna!

Ms. Rodney Dangerfield

Poor Gretch! Jack-of-all-trades Ben Stein, author of “How to Ruin the United States of America,” dissed the Fox & Friends co-host today. As she introduced Stein for his segment, he said, “I’m happy to be here: I’m happy to be near Jenna Lee.” Trying to be sporting, Gretch responded, “Hell, yeah!” In an attempt to sidetrack Stein, Steve Doocy said, “He loves this studio because it’s red, white, and blue, and his new book is all about patriotism.” Stein responded, “I love it because it’s near Jenna Lee.” (Jenna Lee is the attractive auburn-haired FBN morning business co-anchor in the nearby studio.)

In the interview, however, Gretch got a measure of revenge. After Stein told Dave Briggs that he agreed to an extent with Phil Gramm’s assertion that America was “a country of whiners” and as he enumerated examples for Steve Doocy how he himself was a whiner on personal matters, the scorned shiksa added, “That you can’t sit next to Jenna Lee.” Stein replied, “Yes, exactly.”

Gretch Dangerfield: She get’s no respect!
