Kyra Back at CNN: “Hubby,” Twins Back FNC

June 8, 2011

Yesterday CNN Newsroom anchor Kyra Phillip returned from maternity leave to CNN. Welcoming her back were American Morning co-hosts Christine Roberts, Ali Velshi, and Kiran Chetry (the former AM television wife of Kyra’s “hubby,” John Roberts).  As Kiran genially segued to Kyra, Aly jested, “We haven’t seen her for so long [that] we could use a photo.”*

No photo of the radiant mother of twins needed for CN viewers: she was her usual saucy, sassy self. However, her fans might need one of her baby twins, Kellen and Sage, albeit not the one published in TVNewser. Swaddled in white blankets emblazoned with “Fox News Channel” lay her treasured twins, cuter than buttons: Her husband-to-be-eventually had allegedly done the “dastardly deed.”

Welcome back, Krya!

Kyra: “I Can’t Wait”

April 1, 2010

If there was any doubt about their relationship as a couple, both John Roberts and Kyra Phillips appeared eager to dispel it this morning. On American Morning, John had April-fooled his co-host Kiran Chetry, CNN biz correspondent Christine Roberts, and an unnamed third person with the claim that President Obama had named him ambassador to Canada (his homeland). As AM ended, John tossed to the anchor of CNN Newsroom, his reported flame Kyra Phillips.

When he did, Kyra facetiously remarked, “John, Congratulations on your new position, ambassador to Canada. That’s amazing!”* Before he could reply, Kiran laughed and added, “We’re so proud of him.” Jesting, John riposted, “I was very surprised by it.” Giggling, Kyra responded, “Kiran and I, especially, wish you the best of luck. Moving right along!”

Not quite ready to do so, John haltingly asked, “Are you, are?” Kyra prompted, “Yes?” John continued, “Are you coming?” Animatedly, Kyra answered, “Of course! I can’t wait to be a first lady!” A rather reddened John and an incredulous Kiran chuckled as that revealing segue ended.
