Kiran: Bringing Bootylicious Back

November 17, 2010

Giddy up! American Morning co-host Kiran Chetry was back in the U.S. cavalry saddle Tuesday inspiring the wounded soldiers on as CNN’s anchor version of Betty Grable. After ruing that she was not able to boost the morale of those proud warriors at Walter Reed Hospital Monday night (because her press escort was a no-show), Kiran returned to AM with her killer black knee-high, stiletto-heeled boots and a sexy ebony mini to do just that. And did she succeed!

In fact, after “Morning Talkers” segment with Kiran’s gorgeous gams on full display,  AM co-host John Roberts seemed stirred.* In that subsequent story, entitled “Having the Winning ‘Touch’: Study: Fist bumps, butt slaps = success,” correspondent Carol Costello reported that that strategy did not “really work in the office because if you fist bump or chest bump your fellow workers in the office, they kind of think you’re invading their personal space.”** In response, John, beaming broadly and putting his hands up defensively, guffawed, “If you pat a co-worker on the butt, that’s not good either!” As Carol laughed animatedly, Kiran looked downed at the desk and simply shook her head.

Then, as Kiran began to introduce the headline stories, John (showing his palms again as if “clean”) interrupted, “Not that I’ve tried!” Turning to John and winking, Kiran replied, “No. Of course not.” Apparently, hoping to clear him of any suspicion, Kiran added, “We just, we’re assuming: we’re just making an inference there.” Rolling his eyes, John nodded and chuckled. [Of course, he could have thinking of CNN colleague and fiancee Kyra Phillips.]

But, as for Kiran: Bootylicious? Chetrylicious!
