“Ladies and Gentlemen, Abby Huntsman!”

October 15, 2016

So introduced Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Tucker Carlson his lovely co-host Abby Huntsman. “Abby Huntsman,” echoed F&FW co-host Clayton Morris. For the first time since Fox & Friends weekday introduced her on October 7 with a chyron as “Abby Huntsman: Co-host ‘Fox & Friends Weekend,” F&FW did similarly today when it introduced the three co-anchors with their names and their respective Twitter addresses at the start of each of the first three hours.

Now, Abby seems all the more certain to have secured her place on the F&FW curvy couch. On October 7, F&F identified Abby as co-host of F&FW, supra: Later, that very day, Abby Tweeted, “Grew up watching …was so humbled to join the crew this morning to celebrate 20 years for !” The next day, Fox News Tweeted, “TUNE IN: and host a jam-packed edition of now on Fox News Channel.”

After F&FW today, Abby Tweeted, “It’s official. I ❤️ my job! foxandfriends @ 1211 Avenue of… . In response, a fan Tweeted, you are a great addition to excellent work [thumbs-up emoji]: As if to remove any doubt as to her new status, Abby replied, “Thanks Lou!”

Abby, a “great addition” to F&FW? FNC has not made a clarion proclamation: But, it seems quite pellucid that Bill Shine has made his choice: I.e., Abby is the new it” gal on the curvy couch. Seemingly, not overly cowed by her apparent predecessor beauty Anna Kooiman‘s fab “booty-shaking” prowess [vid links included], Abby is not afraid to dance to bumper music on the curvy couch–or even to do the polka on the patio [vid via J$P]!

To paraphrase Axl Rose [vid], welcome to the Gotham jungle (on the F&FW curvy couch), Abby! Beauty and the beast–er, beasts!

F&F: “Abby Huntsman: Co-host ‘Fox & Friends Weekend'”

October 7, 2016

Wow! Apparently, FNC proclaimed Abby Huntsman the new queen of the Fox & Friends Weekend on the curvy couch on the sly. In a segment celebrating twenty years of Fox News, Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade were juxtaposed in mirror image on that very curvy couch with Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris, oft-of-late guest co-host Abby Huntsman,  and F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson. N.B. Steve and Clayton are the senior co-hosts on their respective shows; Brian and Tucker the juniors on theirs; and Ainsley and, apparently, now Abby are the new hires.

Eagle-eyed Johnny Dollar of famed Johnny Dollar’s Place apparently noticed Abby’s seeming elevation from fill-in F&FW co-host to regular F&FW co-host as well. In his “Friday Links and Open Thread” section, he penned, “F&F co-hosts” with a clip of the aforementioned segment. One of his posters, Sparty, noted, “Abby Huntsman was just on F&F with Tucker and Clayton and crawl said she was F&FW co-host….” And, indeed it did: The chyron read, “Abby Huntsman[:] Cohost ‘Fox & Friends Weekend.'”

However, Fox & Friends Weekend‘s Facebook page and Fox & Friends insider: Fox & Friends Weekend only list Clayton Morris and Tucker Carlson as co-hosts. Furthermore, both Abby’s Twitter page and her Facebook page make no mention of her possible new status. To boot, Abby’s FNC bio does not reflect it.

Was Abby crowned without the ceremony? The author tends to think she was. But, he awaits the official proclamation of Abby’s reign.

Clayton’s Back! Why?

September 20, 2016

Heather Childress: “Something a little bit different this morning.”* Fox & Friends First, generally, has been–and should be–a boy-free anchor zone. Unfortunately, the FNC brass seems to be inanely tinkering with the concept of feminine pulchritude arousing F&FF fans aptly in the morn. To wit, true to his word, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris was back again as an F&FF co-host this early morn: He looked like the sad sack who wanted to be a Hooter’s waiter: It just does not work.

Clayton, you are fine on the curvy couch as a bookend to the “fox” du jour on Fox & Friends Weekend: But, sorry, you are an amusing annoyance as a F&FF co-host trying to supplant such beauties as Abby Huntsman or Heather Nauert.

F&FF co-hosts: Only lovelies need apply!

*F&FF – 09/19/16 (@ 5:30 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: As a kind, savvy source apprised me, Clayton’s FNC bio now includes him as an F&FF co-host: Hopefully, it was in error.]


F&FF: Fox & Friends First First?

September 19, 2016

Ladies? Fox & Friends First viewers were given a jarring jolt this morning–and it was not the coffee. Rather, it was F&F Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris seizing the seat that Abby Huntsman or Heather Nauert normally possess next to Heather Childers. Needless to say, it was not a pretty sight.

But, brace yourselves, F&FF fans, Clayton said that he will be back tomorrow. Where is Roger Ailes when FNC needs him? And, Clayton go back to the weekend–and, give the ladies back their seat!

[Author’s aside: Re Carpe Diem article title, supra, this is the first time in the author’s recollection that a male has co-hosted F&FF.]

Correction (re author’s aside): Apparently, I expunged the F&FF male invasion from my memory. :-) Fox & Friends First throwback: debut announcement elucidation (Ainsley Earhardt & Anna Kooiman). Link:

“Morris Moonlighting”

August 28, 2016

Clayton Morris: ET phone home? Today J$P linked to Morris Invest with the rubric “Morris Moonlighting” with a photo of the suave smiling Fox & Friends Weekend co-host with his elbow akimbo (a la the the ubiquitous sorority sister stance). If you trust the Fox News co-anchor qua his status on FNC, you may want to embrace this chance to “contact” this paranormal aficionado. Unfortunately, Clayton does not apparently trust his prospective Earthbound clients enough to give her/him his phone number, physical address, or other contact info. His site simply reads, “Book a call with us now.”

Clayton, don’t be shy: If you expect Fox & Friends viewers and other potential clients to trust you with their “high quality rental properties,” you may want to trust them with your contact information.

Otherwise, your “moonlighting” venture “Morris Invest” may be short-lived.


“Aussie” Anna: Traitor! ;-)

August 19, 2016

What the h*ll is going on with Fox News now that Roger has left the building?! Hottie Outnumbered co-anchor Andrea Tantaros has left the FNC air, leggy frequent Outnumbered co-host Jedidiah Bila followed suit; and now the lovely Alisyn Camerota’s sexy successor Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman is abdicating her reign on the curvy couch to follow hubby Tim Stuckey back to the “Land Down Under.” And, now fans are left only with brainy Tucker Carlson and nerdy Clayton Morris: What is the F&FW fan to do?

Who knows? Unless FNC boss Bill Shine brings back the thrice ruling queen of F&FW Alisyn Camerota (or her former F&FW co-host Nepali beauty Kiran Chetry), installs luscious F&F First newbie Abby Huntsman, or “steals” Greek goddess FBN:AM co-host Nicole Petallides, it may well be time to take the weekend off from watching Fox & Friends‘ weekend edition.

Bill, faithful F&FW fans do not watch four hours of the show for the “Friends.” No offense, Tucker and Clayton: But, they watch it mainly for the “Fox.” Make it happen, Bill!

As to F&FW‘s latest sweet, beautiful, vivacious “Fox” Anna, this evening she Tweeted, “Friends! I’m moving to Australia! My husband landed a new job in Sydney. So proud of him! But will miss you so much.” According to TVNewser, Anna’s last day is the 5th of September.

Thanks for the memories, Anna! You’ll truly be missed, too!


“Do You Love Clayton Morris?”

June 27, 2016

“Who is that guy?” From the mouths of babes! Fox & Friends Weekend meteorologist Janice Dean asked one more question than she should have. The Weather Machine/Dance Machine Janice Dean is always understandably touting F&F, its personalities, etc. in her “interviews” of the Everyman on the street. However, adults know “the answer”: Kids don’t!

At the end of her weather segment at the bottom of the third hour, Janice turned to the children assembled for “state fair” fun and festivities on the F&FW pavilion Sunday, asking, “Are you guys ready to play some more games?”* “Yes!,” they heartily exclaimed. Smiling, Janice queried, “Do you love it here on Fox & Friends Weekend?” A cute little girl curtly responded, “You already said that!”

With co-anchor Clayton Morris nearby, Janice pressed her luck, asking, “Do you love Clayton Morris?” Interjecting, Clayton pleaded, “Yes!” A darling lass asked, “Who is it?” Looking up at Janice, she queried, “Who is that guy?” As Janice roared with laughter, Clayton sheepishly chuckled.

“Do you love Clayton Morris?” Perchance, the answer is to whom one poses the question. To the F&FW viewer, he is probably “likeable enough” to echo a familiar phrase. As to Sara and Natali, they may differ more than a mite.

Love him or hate him, Fox & Friends Weekend itself is still a FNC fan fave!

Hottie Huntsman’s F&FW Debut

May 8, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “I hope not the last time!” Today, Fox & Friends First co-host Abby Huntsman finally made her debut on the F&F Weekend curvy couch. As the show started, Abby turned to her co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris, remarking, “First time. Are you guys going to be nice to me today? Are you going to treat me well?” Clayton answered, “We’re going to be lovely to you!”

And, Clayton and Tucker were: As well as they should have been. After all it was Abby’s virgin appearance on the F&FW vaunted curvy couch as co-anchor. Abby may not have been the fun, effervescent, flirty Anna Kooiman: But, she wasn’t bad either. She may have flubbed the pronunciation of Saskatchewan once: But, she was more than competent, and she remembered to dance out the segment oft enough for the jib camera–and her fans.

In the author’s opinion, Abby gets a “B” in her first appearance on the curvy couch as F&FW co-anchor. The waifish beauty is a budding natural FNC fox: She is breathtakingly gorgeous, and she seems to be rather comfortable in front of the camera. However, the F&FW viewer could sense that she was not entirely at ease today. But, it was her first time.

Kudos, Abby! You did well today. It was your first time on the curvy couch: And, if F&FW fans have their way, it will definitely not be your last.

[Author’s aside: Re the subtitle, supra, at the beginning of the third hour, Tucker introduced Abby, saying, “Abby Huntsman joining us on the couch for the first time: I hope not the last time! It’s been great.]


F&FW Mystery: Where Was Clayton?

April 24, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “It must be a little confusing.” Yes, it was! Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade took the usual seat of regular F&FW co-host Clayton Morris without any explanation as to where Clayton was. Today, F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy took his screen-left, usual place on the curvy couch as F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson abdicated his alpha male spot for Steve.

Saturday, it was interesting to watch as Brian tried to awkwardly deflect the “elephant in the room” with humor.* As the show began to “Kung Fu Fighting” with martial artists practicing on the patio, Tucker simply greeted his guest co-anchor with a “good morning” by name, and Brian jested, “Good morning! That was Krav Maga: And, that is a [sic] elite form of what seems to me to be mixed martial arts. It’s a way to be lethal by the end of this five-to-seven hour show.” In the second hour,  when F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman proclaimed “Brian Kilmeade in the house today,” he joked, “Yeah, I’m privileged to be here, especially, on National Picnic Day.” As the third hour began, no mention was made of Brian’s taking Clayton’s usual spot on the curvy couch or Clayton’s absence: Rather, they seamless discussed anew Kray Maga after opening to its practitioners jousting on the veranda without need for Brian’s comedy. When the final hour arrived, Anna again introduced Brian, saying, “Everybody, Brian Kilmeade’s in the house today!” Smiling, Brian chuckled, “I had no idea this was four hours!” Subsequently, he joshed that he had come in on his solar private plan. Look away, F&FW fan: No diversion here.

Today, was another day: But, no acknowledgement of Clayton as the other male Fox & Friends weekday co-anchor Steve Doocy took his usual place on the curvy couch, relegating Tucker to Clayton’s beta male position on the right of the screen for the day.** However, today Steve did what Brian did not do, try to explain his presence albeit without revealing the reason for Clayton’s absence.

As the show started today, Steve declared, “Just saying right now, it is not Monday! People are going to being emailing shortly, What are you doing in?” Chiming in, Tucker said, “It must be a little confusing.” Turning to Tucker, Steve responded, “A little confusing to some people and you, in particular, Tucker, because I, you are often on this spot here.” Sounding less than convincing, Tucker answered, “It is one of those little tricks we like to play on Sunday morning just in case you’re hungover”: Even less so, Steve replied, “That’s right. But this is the Sunday before a bunch of big elections, primaries on Tuesday, and so I came in because I needed some OT.”

In the second hour today, Tucker welcomed Steve, exclaiming, “By the way, it is so great to see you! It’s not even a weekday, and you have take time from your busy schedule to come here.” Looking at Steve, Anna exclaimed, “Yes! Thank you for that!” Shrugging his shoulders, Steve answered, “There’s a lot going on!” Once again, less than convincingly, he added, “I, you know, there’s so much going on in politics, you want to be here as much as possible to tell the folks about what’s going on.”

Opening the third and final hours, Steve’s strange appearance on Sunday was not noted nor Clayton’s odd absence explained. An uncharacteristically uncomfortable Brian Saturday and seemingly spinning Steve today make Clayton’s absence all the more mysterious.

Yes, Tucker, it is “a little confusing.” And, Steve, there does seem to be “a lot going on” but not with politics–at least, today. Brian and Steve, it was great to see you both on the curvy couch this weekend: But, where was Clayton?

Kilmeade Disses “Nerd” Kevin?

April 24, 2016

Brian: “Thanks for loving us.” Friday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade was no Clayton Morris: And, that was not necessarily a bad thing. In a movie review segment with founder Kevin McCarthy, he was not showing the love to McCarthy a la Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris.

As his Friday review of “Elvis and Nixon” drew to a close, McCarthy gushed, “So, I’m the last interview of the day. And, this, this is so cool! So, I’m walking out of the room, and Kevin Spacey [Nixon] and Michael Shannon are leaving the room. And down the hall there’s like this big poster of the film where they have the faces cut out of Elvis and Nixon, and you…do it for a promotional thing: You put your face in there and put it on social media. So, Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon did a face swap of themselves: So, I’m snapping this photograph, and I had to get a quick selfie of myself just standing there with them. I don’t know…I was nerding out a little bit. I mean it was Kevin Spacey from “American Beauty” and “Seven.” It was a cool moment!”

After producers ran the selfie of McCarthy with Spacey and Shannon face swapping in the poster of “Elvis and Nixon,” co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt flattered McCarthy, saying, “Maybe, they’ll make a movie out of your photo next!” Laughing, McCarthy replied, “That would be amazing! That’s going to be the next most requested photo ever at the National Archives.” Chiming in, Brian acerbically remarked, “Kevin, it’s just amazing…they didn’t ask you to hang out because they were so close to the door.”

As the segment concluded, McCarthy ingratiatingly exclaimed, “Thank you guys for having me on! I love you guys!” Instead of responding in kind, Brian retorted, “Thanks for loving us!”

Poor Kevin McCarthy looking for love: And, not getting any from Brian. Where’s Clayton?

Ainsley’s Dream: F&F Finally

March 25, 2016

A month later: Too banal for breakfast or just right? Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt has definitely paid her FNC dues: As chronicles, Ainsley did overnight shifts on weekends; updates on the hour on weekday shows, e.g., Hannity; a short-lived stint as co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend; and, most recently, co-anchor of Fox & Friends First. And, finally, Ainsley landed her dream job, co-host of Fox & Friends.

But, now, Ainsley has to show her mettle: She has to prove that she has what it takes to successfully co-host cable news morning champ Fox & Friends. Previously, Ainz failed to do so when she co-anchored F&F Weekend with fellow tyros Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs: As faithful FNC viewers may well remember, former F&FW co-host and FNC utility player Alisyn Camerota had to return to the show to right the F&FW listing ship and to show the boys the ropes. After her subsequent stint as co-host of Fox & Friends First, hopefully, Ainsley has learned what tack to take: If she falters this time, at least,  she has seasoned veterans Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on whom to fall back.

Even though Ainsley may not be the sharpest knife in the F&F drawer, she does seem to be one of the sweetest seasonings in the cupboard. Lately, the Southern belle has seemed to almost ape [split infinitive intended] her predecessor counterpart Northerner Elisabeth Hasselbeck. A little too saccharine for the author’s taste–not too mention a mite too modest post her brief Fox & Friends Weekend gig: But, she does seem to have the best of intentions to make Ailes proud and her viewers happy.

Sex it up, Ainsley! Don’t let the boys be the main reason that your viewers tune in in the morning. That’s never a good thing!

Clayton’s Natali Preggers?

March 5, 2016

Oops! Sandra Smith asks, “Don’t you [Clayton] have one on the way?” Last Saturday, Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-anchor Sandra Smith appeared to let F&FW co-anchor Clayton Morris‘s proverbial cat out of the bag. During a segment featuring Toys/Babies-R-Us trade-in deals, including old car seats (with consumer-savings expert Andrea Woroch), Sandra turned to Clayton exclaiming, “Are you listening to this! Because don’t you have one on the way?”*

Deftly, Clayton simply answered, “I’m listening!” N.B. Clayton ignored Sandra’s last query.

Apparently, Clayton was listening to psychic medium Laura Lynne Jackson when she did a twenty-minute psychic reading for him about three and half months ago (vid). Speaking to a very attentive Clayton, the author of “The Light Between Us” said, “The first thing I want to tell you is that they [Clayton’s deceased relatives including his grandmother] are showing me is that there is this beautiful…green path coming up: Green signifies for me change, openness, new energy, new ideas. As we go into April, changes are going to happen here but they are going to be great for you. So, just remember I’m saying this!

Elaborating, Jackson declared, “I don’t want to get personal but there is a possibility for a third [child]….There is a point of light waiting but this will be your choice to let it through or not: But I think that you are going to let it through.”

Exclaiming, Clayton replied, “Wow!”

Wow indeed, Clayton! It appears that your psychic was right. If so, congratulations, Clayton and Natali, on number three!

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 02/27/16 (@ 7:24 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: Re his reading, Clayton clearly showed that he took it very seriously: The aforementioned vid shows not only a portion of Clayton’s reading by the medium psychic Jackson but also his very emotional response to it.]

Ainsley: F&F’s New Fox

February 16, 2016

Earhardt: “I am…thrilled to join Steve and Brian on the curvy couch.”  Fox & Friends viewers were tipped off early this morning that changes were afoot by regular F&F fill-in co-host, Anna Kooiman: As the show began today with her in the center seat (with Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth), she  cryptically remarked, “Good morning! We’re all visiting the couch this morning!” (After Elisabeth Hasselbeck left the F&F curvy couch, Anna has usually greeted her F&F viewers with her name as if she might be the future queen of the weekday curvy couch).

According to a press release today by FNC, Ainsley Earhardt has been named the new co-anchor of Fox & Friends and she will make her debut as the official co-host on Leap Day, 2016 (February 29). FNC Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes declared, “Ainsley’s relentless work ethic, congeniality, and enthusiasm for connecting with our viewers…are extremely refreshing. She’s a superb team player and an excellent on-air host.” As for Ainsley, she declared, “I am grateful for this opportunity and am thrilled to join Steve [Doocy] and Brian [Kilmeade] on the curvy couch to deliver Americans their morning news.”

It has been a remarkable ride for Ainsley in her Fox & Friends odyssey.

Ainsley made her debut on Fox & Friends Weekend as a guest co-host in February 2008. On February 28, 2008 (almost 8 years to the date of her future debut as queen of the F&F curvy couch), Ainsley apprised the author that she was just filling in and that FNC would announce changes when they were final: Even though the lovely got into hot water initially with FNC brass for being honest and straightforward with this viewer in various missives, the chastened Southern belle did finally take the reins at F&F Weekend with fellow newbie co-hosts, Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris by her side. But Ainsley’s tenure was short-lived as her callow boys needed a surer hand to guide the F&FW ship, namely, Alisyn Camerota (who had sailed those waters before as F&FW co-anchor).

But, Ainsley has stayed the course: And, she has always been there when Ailes needed her. Ainz has been a cheerful and ready fill-in co-host for Fox & Friends weekday, and she has happily served as Fox & Friends First co-anchor with Heather Childers. She has paid her dues, and Ailes has now rewarded her.

And, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Ainsley’s predecessor hardily approves: She Tweeted, “Congratulations to my #SisterInChrist & #SweetFriend @ainsleyearhardt on the @foxandfriends news!! This #CBO can’t wait to see you shine!”

Congratulations, Ainsley!!

Anna: “I’m Happy for the Opportunity”

January 18, 2016

Kilmeade: “You’re doing great!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman does double duty and the Fox & Friends weekday boys seem to like it. Today, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy opened the show, remarking, “Brian [Kilmeade], you know, you and I took off over the weekend, and she’s still here!”

Grinning Puckishly as ever, Brian replied, “It’s unbelievable!”

Smiling sweetly, Steve replied, “Anna has worked about twenty straight days. God bless her!”

Flattered, a chagrined Anna chuckled, “No, it hasn’t been that long! I’m happy for the opportunity! Thanks for having me on the couch!”

Aptly, Brian answered, “Yeah, you’re doing great!”

Indeed, Anna has been doing great as the “girl in the middle” on the F&F curvy couch as of late: And, she seems to be ready to take the reins without any real competition.

But, if Anna does take Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s erstwhile spot on the F&F curvy couch, the obvious question is who will replace the vivacious blond beauty in the F&FW center seat.

Since Anna is reigning on both the F&F and F&FW curvy couches rather than having subs, e.g., Nicole Petallides, Kimberly Guilfoyle, etc., help her out, one begins to wonder if the FNC suits are waiting for F&F First co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt to return from maternity leave and to retake her old spot on the F&F Weekend curvy couch to ease the transition for Anna from the weekend to the weekday.

Between opinionated alpha male Tucker Carlson and peevish beta male Clayton Morris, Ainsley just might be that next sweet Southern belle that can continue to make F&FW work.

Huddy’s Rough Return to F&FW

December 9, 2015

Juliet: “I’d like to keep my job but trust me if they could read my mind…” Yow! Guest Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Juliet Huddy had a rather frosty reception Sunday morning in her return to the curvy couch. Subbing for sweet, smart, and sexy Southern F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman, Juliet brought her usual snarky, snide–yet sexy–take to the table. And, it was not as well received by her audience as she might like.

Before the show began, Juliet Tweeted, “You’re welcome to wake up early today and check me out on Fox News 6-10 am! (Sans the Fox5 crew…). When F&FW did begin, co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris welcomed her to the curvy couch: Joyfully, she responded, “Good to be back! Good to be back! Always good to be here!”

Alas, it was not to be.

During the show, Juliet oft cited her friends who had voted for the President twice and who said that they were tired of his saying what Islam is and what Islam wasn’t and of his talking about gun control and that they wanted to hear specifics about how he recognizes that the country is looking vulnerable. Some F&FW fans were not amused that “her friends” were Obama supporters and they assumed that she was as well. Of course, her support of the NSA may not have ingratiated her to them. [Re her sex life, Juliet racily chuckled, “Nobody cares what I’m doing with my boyfriend.”]*

Mid-show, Juliet seemed to have had it with her F&FW viewer critics. During an “Oval Office Address” discussion, Juliet declared, “Well, you know, I have to say as I was saying earlier, a couple of my friends who were Obama supporters, who voted for him.” Glaring at the camera, she sniped, “Yes, and I do have friends who voted for Obama!” Turning to Clayton, she snarled, “I’m getting lots of Tweets, little nasty Tweets!”

One sympathetic Tweep wrote, “Idiots woke up early today. We have your back, Juliet.”

In response, an angry Juliet exclaimed, “I’d like to keep my job but trust me if they could read my mind… (with angry devil emoji).”

As the final hour drew to a close, Juliet dug herself in deeper in the eyes of her critics when she seemed to go to bat for writer Linda Stasi of the the NY Daily News.* In discussing the latest  Daily News controversy, Tucker asked, “Why is that a certain sort of person looks at a terrorist shooting like this and immediately blames the victims, that is, normal Americans.”

Putting her hand up as in protest, Juliet remarked, “I didn’t take it, I didn’t it as she was blaming this guy.” As Tucker guffawed in derision, Juliet continued, “Hold on! Here’s what I took it as. I, I felt like she was saying, ‘This guy was so kind of  extreme in his views, and he was always kind of talking about them. He was always just spewing them out there that, maybe, this was something that raised the ire of this psychopath that ended up going and killing people.”

Chiming in aptly, Clayton replied, “But, but, wait! But, but, no, the point is she says “thirteen innocent” victims have died. So, she made a point to say that she’s not innocent.”

Finally, coming to her senses, Juliet answered, “Not innocent which is, which is I think you and I have a problem. I agree.”

Huddy Replaces M.I.A. Kooiman?

November 22, 2015

Not quite: But, to paraphrase President Obama, she’ll do–at least, for today. Yesterday, Outnumbered co-host Sandra Smith subbed for Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman: But, the priggish, lovely L.S.U. tomboy certainly was no threat to the sexy, vivacious Anna. Today, a more matronly, jaunty Juliet Huddy sat anew in her erstwhile seat on the F&FW curvy couch for the comely Kooiman: But, the Heboken honey in red with her priggish high neckline, low hemline, and elbow cuffs [Pic via J$] was assuredly no threat to the smart, sweet, sexy Southern belle, who happily flaunts her tanned, toned stems to her F&FW fans as she keeps them au courant.

Where was Anna who has been gone for the last two weekends? As to last weekend, the author fears that she and her co-host Clayton Morris were replaced for more seasoned journos in the aftermath of the Paris bombings (F&F Saturday, F&F Sunday). Re this weekend, Anna Tweeted (with pics), “Can’t wait to celebrate this beautiful bride over her wedding weekend! Congratulations cuzzzz!”

Hurry back, Anna! You are missed!

Clayton & Anna Pulled Again

November 15, 2015

Kilmeade: “Special @foxandfriends.” Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchors Clayton Morris and Anna Kooiman were pulled again from the curvy couch Sunday morning. Explaining the absence of the two F&FW co-hosts before the show began, Fox & Friends weekday co-host Brian Kilmeade Tweeted, “Looking forward @ working w/ & on special all over the world focusing on @ISIS & FRANCE.” I.e., no worries, viewers, the big boys and the big gals remain in charge on Fox & Friends Weekend: When things settle down in the world, Clayton and Anna will be back.

F&FW’s Clayton & Anna Pulled

November 14, 2015

Jon & Kimberly join Tucker to form the Fox & Friends Weekend “A-Team” Saturday. Co-hosts Clayton Morris and Anna Kooiman were pulled from the F&FW Saturday lineup this morning in the wake of the horrific terrorist attacks on France Friday evening (local time) that left 127 dead and 200 others injured (99 in critically condition). In their stead, F&FW substituted more seasoned FNC veterans, Happening Now co-host Jon Scott and Five co-anchor and guest co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle. Notably, today Tucker got to stay in the game. [Two years ago (04/20/13), after the capture of the last of the Boston Marathon bomber brothers, Tucker and Clayton both were temporarily demoted on F&FW (Saturday) in favor of FNC heavyweights Brian Kilmeade and–yes, dear reader–the very same Jon Scott: Perhaps, to Clayton and Tucker’s chagrin, their then F&FW ace co-anchor Alisyn Camerota aptly stayed in the game.]

At the end of weekday Fox & Friends yesterday, Clayton and Anna promoted their then upcoming F&FW Saturday with promises of guest appearances of “one of the premier psychics in the world, Laura Lynne Jackson” and of Santa Claus. Concluding the show, a smiling and waving Anna sweetly declared, “Bye, everybody! See you dark and early tomorrow!” But, it was not to be: Clayton and Anna had to leave the field.

When there is explosive hard news to cover, F&FW knows full well that they need to go to their “A Team.” And, today they did–with Jon and Kimberly. But, there is still hope for tech geek Clayton and alluring lovely Anna to make F&FW‘s “A-Team”: After all, Tucker got his call today.

Wine & Pate: Tucker is Okay!

No bow tie: It’s Friday night–and it’s FNC. On this latest Friday night on Hannity as guest host, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Tucker Carlson reminded this viewer of his old CNN Crossfire days when he represented the right–except he was not sporting his obnoxiously effete, elitist bow tie of olden times. Instead, his F&FW experience has seemed to illuminate the Daily Caller co-founder and editor-in-chief that it is well and good to utilize logic and reason in polemics but, if he is truly  to engage Everyman/Everywoman, he must eschew his natural tendency not to reveal things about himself on air but rather to embrace a more vulnerable approach–and, yes, even to eat food on air.

Tucker has come far on FNC: The F&FW fop sits more comfortably on the curvy couch; he has seamlessly seized the alpha male mantle from co-anchor Clayton Morris; and he seems to connect more easily with the alluring Anna Kooiman. Now, Tucker pontificates with confidence; Clayton opines deferentially; and co-anchor Anna Kooiman coos with confidence.

And, as long-time F&FW fans miss the erstwhile ensembles, they may begin to more fully embrace the “new faces” of FNC’s early weekend morn. Political pundit Tucker “ain’t” too bad, and tech geek Clayton may pass muster: But, sorry, boys, the vivacious vixen Anna is the real draw!

Anna On Honeymoon: “Very Salacious” Huddy Back!

September 19, 2015

Kooiman: “I’m going out with a bang!” And, Juliet is BACK with her own bang! Tuesday, Fox & Friends guest co-anchor Anna Kooiman revealed, “I leave for my honeymoon today! I’m going out with a bang!”* When co-host Steve Doocy queried where she would go, Anna exclaimed, “Italy and Austria!” And, in her place on the curvy couch today sat former F&FW co-host Juliet Huddy.

Even though it has been approximately a year and a half since Juliet graced the curvy couch, she seemed somewhat back in her element–even though Juliet awkwardly defended her friend View co-host Michelle Collins repeatedly for her snarky remark directed at Miss America contestant, Kelly Johnson (Miss Colorado), for her talent competition as to her life-saving work as an RN. Not to mention Collins reportedly impugning nurses reportedly saying, “Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors.”

To boot, Juliet let the guys and gals know that she was still her own licentious self even if she were dressed this morn more like a school marm than an FNC fox. In a “7 Things Every Man Should Know,” co-host Tucker Carlson read, “You [men] are more difficult to live with than you think you are.”** In response, Juliet declared, “It’s accurate: Yes, definitely! That’s why I think people should live with each other before they get married: But, that’s just my very salacious personality.” Pointedly, co-anchor Tucker Carlson replied to the thrice-married cougar, “And, studies yet do show that people who live together before they get married have a higher divorce rate”: As co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris grinned, Juliet laughed, “Which makes a lot of sense!”

Youthful hottie Anna is gone for now: And, the F&FW boys get a blast from the past.
