“I Am Very Happily Married”

August 25, 2009

That pesky wedding ring. Until Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs treasures his wedding band as much as he does his cell phone, he is going to keep getting grief from F&FW fans and Twitter followers. E.g., after his return from his Turks and Caicos vacation, Twitter’s tnr4evr stated, “We noticed you didn’t have a tan line on your ring finger!!!!”*

In response, Dave declared, “[A]hh yes my wedding ring, I did lose it a few weeks ago and have been scrambling around looking for it. I am very happily married.”** Regrettably, his “ringless” state is nothing new. In fact, Dave has admitted, “I forget where I put my wedding ring all the time.”***

In this sense, the F&FW sports guy seems like the stereotypical jock, i.e., albeit popular, too oft clueless. In the past month or two, FNC’s audience heard of an unfaithful man allegedly having a certain body part Super-glued to his abdomen by his piqued paramours: As a “very happily married” man, Dave should not object too much if his wife Brandi, understandably, Super-glues his wedding band to his ring finger. Go for it, Brandi!





Dave on Mute

August 22, 2009

Today Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs returned from his family vacation to the show tight-lipped. Other than Tweeting an announcement that he was back from the Turks and Caicos islands and a lone landscape beach Twitpic, he said very little. No mention was made of his wife Brandi at all; of his daughter Emerson or son William specifically; or anything that he and his fam did.

As F&FW fans know, Dave generally gushes garrulously when it comes to his wife and kids. However, of late, he seems to be more guarded in his remarks. Even his colleagues seem to have got the message. E.g., when Mike Jerrick, F&FW Dave’s substitute last weekend, asked, “Where is Dave, again?,” co-anchor Alisyn Camerota replied, “He’s on a fabulous vacation:  That’s all you need to know!” In fact, today, when meteorologist Rick Reichmuth mentioned Dave’s holiday in the Turks and Caicos, he then haltingly said, “I don’t know if you’ve announced that’s where you went”: Reassuring him that he had not crossed the line, Dave declared, “That’s where I was, my friend.”

Dave, your most manifest asset has been your apparent love, appreciation, and enjoyment of your family. Even  though the author may pique you on occasion in this regard, do not be afraid to share it with your audience. All in all, you won’t be sorry.
