Trump Addles Aly

April 7, 2016

And Confuses Cuomo!  Daftly, New Day co-anchors Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo laughed uproariously at The Donald after a clip wherein Trump instructed his supporters about the proper spelling of his malignant moniker for his GOP Presidential opponent Ted Cruz (“Lyin’Ted”). Unfortunately for Aly and Chris, they ironically gave their fans a laugh–at their expense.

As the “B block” of the first hour began, vid ran of Trump supporters chanting, “Lyin’ Ted, Lyin’ Ted, Lyin’Ted”: Responding, The Donald declared, “He is Lyin’ Ted….But, you have to spell it right: It’s L-Y-I-N apostrophe, Lyin’ Ted!”*

As the vid ended, the camera honed in on Aly and Chris, who laughed heartily with their shoulders heaving in simpatico. Chuckling, Chris said, “We’re trying to figure out why Trump wants it spelled the right way. I said, ‘Maybe he trademarked it or something like that.'” Chiming in, Aly replied, “Since when he’s a stickler for spelling? I was confused about that one.”

Actually, it is quite simple, Aly and Chris. Remember the homophone? Trump wants his listeners to think of Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted.” Not “Lion Ted.”

Kiran Chetry: Reverend?

March 17, 2016

Kiran: “I’m officially a minister!” Believe it or not, former CNN/FNC anchor Kiran Chetry announced that she has joined the clergy. The Nepali lovely Tweeted, “I’m officially a minister! Got ordained to preside over my best friend’s wedding. God bless!!” Just two minutes later, the enchanting beauty added, “Lady @ NY city clerks [sic] office was kind enough to snap a pic of me signing the official clergy ledger!”

Reverend Kiran Chetry? She is surely someone who would make even the most heathen among her followers attend a service. But, could one really concentrate on her message? Perhaps, not: But, one would certainly take notice of the pastoral pulchritude!

Kiran: A ray of light–as always!

Aly Oops: Trump’s “Book of Corinthians” Blooper

January 19, 2016

The Donald isn’t the only one stumbling over “Second Corinthians.” On New Day this morning, co-host Alisyn Camerota had a faux pas herself re II Corinthians as she smiled at GOP front runner Donald J. Trump’s false step at Liberty University yesterday (when he called Second Corinthians “Two Corinthians” to the merriment of the devout students). Reading the headline news as the third hour began, Aly declared, “Donald Trump looking for some redemption after a slip on the campaign trail: He stumbled while citing the Book of Corinthians at the evangelical Liberty University and now he is seeking to right the ship, courting more religious voters at three events in Iowa.”

Ironically, as Aly tweaked The Donald for his lack of Biblical knowledge, she seemed to display her own as she referred to “the Book of Corinthians” for, at least, the second time this morning. As most seasoned evangelicals should know, “the Book of Corinthians” is nonexistent: Rather, there are two distinct books, i.e., First Corinthians and Second Corinthians. In all fairness to Aly, she was probably just reading the teleprompter: However, if she were well versed in the Scripture (pardon the pun), she probably should have noticed her mistake the second time. The irony of Aly’s miscitation was rather amusing.

Nevertheless, if evangelical Christians are true to form, the lovely Aly and the dapper Donald will probably be forgiven posthaste. As to referring to Corinthians in the future–or, at least, their leather–perhaps, that should be left to the inimitable Ricardo Montalban.

Aly’s Goodbye Kiss

December 24, 2015

Sweet –and sexy! On this Christmas Eve, New Day co-anchor Alisyn Camerota must have been standing under the mistletoe. As Aly bid her ND fans a fond farewell this morn, she blew them a rare kiss for holiday cheer.

Not surprisingly, her co-host Chris Cuomo suddenly played the Grinch, feebly attempting to steal some sweet and sexy CNN Christmas joy from Aly and her acolytes. Fecklessly, People‘s 1997 “New York City’s Most Eligible Bachelor” tried to mock Aly’s sweet and sexy gesture by bussing the air and looking at the queen of New Day with some slightly “good-natured” derision.

But, the mischievous scion of Mario Cuomo and the younger brother of New York’s guv could not diminish the inimitable Aly a/k/a the “Bristol Bay Babe.” She may be his TV wife: But, Chris does well to remember that Aly is his better ND half–and, indubitably, the fairer sex!

Racy Aly: “Something on the Sofa”

November 2, 2015

Carol Costello: “Oh, I wish I hadn’t heard that, Alisyn!” Monday morning, New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota returned to her risque Fox & Friends Weekend days as she concluded the “The Good Stuff.”

As the final segment of ND drew to a close, Aly congratulated ND technical director Beth and her husband on the birth of their first child. As co-anchor Chris Cuomo cooed over one of the sweet baby pics, co-host Michael Pereira looked over at Aly, saying, “We have babies all over the place. Don’t drink the water!”

In reply, Aly deadpanned, “I know. I guess not.” Caressing the sofa with both of her hands, she naughtily jested, “Maybe, there’s something on the sofa. No!”

Arching his eyebrows and shaking his head in disbelief at Aly’s bawdy quip, Chris stammered, “Oh, that’s s[ick?]. Again!” As Aly laughed heartily and a chagrinned Chris grimaced, Michaela smilingly exclaimed, “Hey, now! I’m gonna leave it there! Time for Newsroom with Carol Costello on this Monday morning. Good morning, Carol!”

Taking Michaela’s toss, an incredulous Carol laughed, “Oh, I wish I hadn’t heard that, Alisyn!”

New Day with Aly: not exactly your father’s CNN!

Kiran Chetry: Director

October 19, 2015

“Submission Type.” Don’t get too excited, naughty boys: Kiran Chetry has not yet been tapped to star in the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey. Rather, the sexy former host of American Morning (CNN) and Fox & Friends (First & Weekend) has been named Director of Global Strategy for WaveCapital Partners LLC (Banking & Financial Services) according to the Charlotte Business Journal.

This afternoon (October 19), Kiran Tweeted, “Thrilled to join the team! Lots of exciting projects in the works. Great people! For a photo of the Nepalese lovely with her new colleagues, link here.

Congratulations, Kiran!

[Author’s aside: Re the subtitle, supra, the author playfully cited the Charlotte Business Journal‘s “Kiran Chetry Recognition Plaque” that had a line that read, “Submission Type: New Hire.”]

Wine & Pate: Tucker is Okay!

October 16, 2015

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!

New Day: No “Good Stuff?”

August 19, 2015

No worries, ND fans: Aly is still there! However, New Day oddly deleted it’s de rigeur “Good Stuff” segment this morning at the end of the show. Stranger yet, there was no personal segue to Carol Costello. Rather, in a solo shot, co-host Chris Cuomo alerted the voters in the final segment that “the news continues with Carol Costello right after this break.” At least, then his sexy co-anchor Alisyn Camerota put her hand next to his face and waved goodbye to her fans–even though her lovely visage did not grace the screen.

New Day, if you want to be “Headline News,” that is one thing. But, if you ever expect to catch Fox & Friends you have to up your game!

Kiran: Nepal’s Beauty (& Host)

August 2, 2015

“Hosting Miss Nepal US pageant.” Whilom CNN and FNC anchor Nepali lovely Kiran Chetry exudes feminine pulchritude: So, who better to celebrate such beauty than she in the 2015 Miss Nepal U.S. Pageant? No one!

Displaying her gorgeous gams in a sexy short exotic dress, Kiran announced her return to the beauty contest. The Nepali lovely Tweeted, “[H]osting Miss Nepal US pageant. This is dedicated to “rebuilding Nepal” after earthquake. missnepalus.com.”

And, Kiran is not kidding. “Rebuilding Nepal” is a cause close to the heart of the Kathmandu-born beauty. In April, she made a special plea to her fans to come to the aid of the Nepalese people. Specifically, she requested that they give to “Kids of Katmandu or the American Red Cross.”

Kudos, Kiran!

[Author’s aside: The author followed Kiran’s suggestion re “Kids of Katmandu”: And, he is glad that he did. Of course, the Red Cross is a wonderful option, too.]

Cuomo Whacks Trump

July 20, 2015

Chris: The Donald’s “disposition, dyspepsia, and demagoguery.” If one watches New Day, s/he can tell immediately that ND co-host Chris Cuomo is no fan of the Celebrity Apprentice star and real estate magnate. In fact, the Cuomo scion evinces utter disdain for the leading GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Introducing a segment re surging Democratic insurgent Prez aspirant Bernie Sanders this morning, Chris facetiously queries, “Is Bernie Sanders the Democrat’s Donald Trump?” Taking a gratuitous shot at The Donald, he snarked, “No, not in disposition, dyspepsia, and demagoguery: But is he tapping into the passion of his party?”

Will Trump hit back at Mario’s boy? Tune in. It should be fun!

Alluring Aly’s Anniversary

July 15, 2015

Comely Camerota: “Can’t believe it’s already my one year #CNNannniversary[:] it’s been a terrific first year.” And, it has been–with New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota doing what she does best, resurrecting moribund cable news morning programs (a la her second and third stint at Fox & Friends Weekend). Aly to the rescue: Aly’s cool and Aly’s hot!

When New Day replaced American Morning (soon after Kiran Chetry‘s tearful namaskaar), CNN put beefcake Cuomo scion Chris on to co-anchor the show with tyro Kate Bolduan and sweet third wheel news reader Michaela Pereira. It never quite worked with Chris leading the pack as the alpha male with puppy Kate yapping for his affection and second wife Michaela seeming to just want Big Love or peace, joy, and happiness–not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. When Kate got preggers, the ND viewer could sense that Kate’s tearful goodbye may have been forever (with Zucker itching for a winner in the morn).

Subsequently, Aly began filling in for Kate. Even the casual viewer could sense a whole new dynamic–where the boy was not the boss anymore: The girl was even if she did not necessarily let him know it. Like his Pop or his brother, Chris plays partisan style: And, Aly plays it fair. Poor Michaela seems to opine from the peanut gallery.

With Aly at the helm, it is indeed a New Day at CNN. A good day!

Camerota Gets Naked– Yet Again!

May 25, 2015

Aly Cat: Rowrr! Today, sexy New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota provided her male admirers with a view that they will relish. A Playboy spread? Not quite. But, she did show some skin–the sight of her naked ring finger this morning.

Lest Aly’s amorous acolytes get too excited, she has gone bare before. After an unexplained two-month absence from her then show Fox & Friends Weekend, she similarly doffed her connubial bling when she appeared as a Fox & Friends Friday guest co-host: Of course, Loverboy was performing “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” that Friday for F&F’s 2011 “All-American Summer” concert series that day and the bohemian hottie was ready to party (vid). A few years later, (01/04/14), Aly was at it again as she flashed her tanned nude marital ring finger to her acolytes when she guest co-anchored America’s News HQ.

Now, Aly has changed networks from the irreverent cable news ratings champ network Fox News to the more staid 24/7 cable news pioneer. Now, her hemline often drops too low and her neckline rises too high. But, she is still giving her fans the finger–not the mean one.

“Naked Aly”: It has a certain seductive ring to it. For her fervent votaries, it resounded all the more today. Rowrr: Aly Cat is back–at least, for today!

 [Author’s aside: Re Aly Cat, “ages ago,” when Aly guest co-hosted a segment with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on F&F about with what animal the co-anchors identified most, Aly purred, “Cat.” (For curious F&F fans, Steve answered, “Unicorn,” and Brian declared, “Lion.”)]

Kiran’s Heartfelt Plea

April 28, 2015

“They need your help.” Today, Kiran Chetry desperately pleaded for the immediate help of her beloved people, the people of Nepal (the land of her birth).

In a video Kiran posted this afternoon on Twitter, the Nepali beauty reached out to both her CNN and her Fox News fans: Identifying herself as a journalist formerly of the two preeminent cable news channels (American Morning and Fox & Friends Weekend co-host respectively), she implored her Tweeps to come to the aid of her fellow Nepalis, saying, “They need your help….If there’s anything that you can do to help–a donation, no matter how big or small–you would be making a difference between life and death for these people.” Requesting their immediate aid, she added, “Waiting around to figure out the scope and scale of the disaster means lives lost that could have been saved which is why I’m asking you to please donate.”

For those who may have needed guidance as to a worthy charity, Kiran remarked, “Kids of Katmandu has years of experience on the ground in Nepal. They’ve been focusing on the children and working very closely with native Nepalis to insure that every dime you donate is spent in the best way possible to give aid to those who need it and quickly. And now is the time that they need it quickly.”  And, for any hesitant soul, Kiran continued, “Please if you have even a small amount to give, go to KidsofKathmandu.org or the American Red Cross and give anything you can to help the people of Nepal.

Kiran, this author will indeed. And, hopefully all of your other CNN and FNC fans will follow suit. Kudos, Kiran: Thanks for your video–and for letting your Tweeps know how that they can be there for the Nepalese people!

Aly: Too Sexy For New Day?

April 27, 2015

CNN buttons Camerota down–or pins her up! Sexy New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota apparently got a directive from prudish CNN producers this morning: Button your shirt! In the early morn, Aly sported a somewhat plunging neckline which flattered her fab feminine figure: But, the Fox & Friends Weekend former co-anchor also looked somewhat demure in that her decolletage was not accentuated. However, Aly did subscribe to Michelle Obama’s “dare to bare arms” fashion today: And, she looked lovely.

Perhaps, Aly appeared a bit too lovely for the staid CNN crew. In the latter part of the second hour, Aly was all buttoned up–or pinned up. The author could not discern which offending item was used to cloak the bosom of CNN’s newest Aphrodite, Kiran Chetry‘s apt successor.

Zucker, let Aly do her thing. She rules the morning even if the governor’s beefcake brother, Chris Cuomo, thinks he does. Chris may have been deemed Playgirl‘s “Sexiest Men of 1985,”: But, don’t underestimate the Bristol Bay Babe. That New Jersey cheesecake cutie keeps her fans coming back year after year–no matter what news channel she is on.

To paraphrase the Pussycat Dolls [vid], let Aly “loosen up [her] buttons”!

Aly’s “Apology”: Why I Left Fox News

April 1, 2015

Camerota: “I left Fox for more opportunity.” New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota so answered her fervid fans “MOST burning question” yesterday, i.e., “Why did you leave Fox?” [Vid.] She disclosed, “[It is] the question that I get every day.” Elaborating, she continued, “Some people say, ‘When are you coming back?’ And, some people say, ‘How dare you!’ And, some people say, ‘How could you have gone to the dark side of CNN?’ And, some people say, ‘I thought you were fair and balanced!” Smiling, Aly declared, “I’m happy to have an opportunity to address all this.”

In explanation, Aly revealed, “I left Fox for more opportunity, and CNN has exceeded all of my wildest dreams on that front. I didn’t know that I would have all of this opportunity when I came to CNN. I’m so grateful for it: In the eight months that I have been at CNN, I have had more opportunity than I had in the eight years prior.”

Contrasting her new experiences at CNN with her time at FNC, she said, “I have had exclusive interviews; I have hosted documentaries; I’ve anchored prime time specials; I’ve been on every show across CNN’s entire platform; [and] I got a job as the morning anchor on New Day which is a dream job–a long held dream job of mine.” Summing it up, she said, “I have had so many golden opportunities: And, I’m really, really happy!”

Addressing her forlorn Fox fans, she said, “And, I know that you all say that you can’t possibly be happy: I think this is possibly the happiest moment of my career, my long career. And the funny thing is that I’ve loved all of my jobs: I’ve had great jobs! I loved my time at Fox….But, this is my favorite career opportunity.”

Softening the blow further to her FNC devotees, Aly cooed, “When people say, ‘I hope you’re doing okay,’ I am doing okay. And, when they say, ‘When are you going to leave and go back?,’ I don’t think that’s in the cards, at least, not as long as CNN will have me. So, I hope that somehow you can dig deep and be happy for me and even occasionally check out the competition from time to time and tune into CNN.”

Well done, Aly. You may have new appreciative acolytes on New Day: But, you have not forgotten your faithful fans at Fox & Friends weekend either. And, the author’s bet is that they will find it difficult to “dig deep and be [truly] happy” for you: But, they will doubtlessly “even check out the competition from time to time and tune into CNN” for their beloved Aly.

[Author’s aside: In the author’s opinion, Aly said it all, supra, when she said, “In the eight months that I have been at CNN, I have had more opportunity than I had in the eight years prior.” Too bad. A la her former F&FW co-host Kiran Chetry, she deserved a center seat on the F&F weekday curvy couch and she did not get it. The losers? F&F fans.]

Chris Cuomo: “I Gave Up Booze”

March 4, 2015

“Which was a HUGE mistake!” Poor New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo is regretting his Lent sacrifice–big time. After a segment on a woman wearing a hijab for Lent, Chris remarked, “I gave up for Lent!”

Quizzically, his co-host Alisyn Camerota queried, “You gave up?…You gave up Lent?”

Turning to Aly, the proud Italian Catholic exclaimed, “I’ll never give up Lent.”* Elaborating, he remarked, “I gave up booze which was a huge mistake!” When his co-anchors, Aly and Michaela Pereira, laughed, he made strange noises (“he, he, he, he”) and shook his hands repeatedly as if he had delirium tremens. Then, turning serious, he said, “We [Catholics] also make sure that we try to do something: You’re supposed to try to do something affirmative.”

Putting her hand on Chris’ shoulder, Aly asked, “What are you doing for others?” Chuckling, Chris jested, “Some would say not drinking!” Smiling, Aly replied, “That’s right!” As Aly giggled, Chris continued, “But, it’s not helping me! I’ll tell you that right now!”

Hang in there, Chris: Easter Sunday is only a month and a day away!

*New Day – 03/04/15 (@ 8:17 a.m. ET).

Cuomo Goes Soprano Again?

February 26, 2015

“Better if u swallow [your tongue].” Yesterday, New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo almost went Soprano anew on a crusty “Old [Arizona] Cowboy.” When the self-described conservative Catholic Vietnam vet acerbically asserted, “CNN = Communistic News Network…And [I] use the word News…with tongue in cheek,” Chris was not amused. In a display of stereotypical Italian machismo, he shot back, snarling, “[B]etter if u swallow it.”

Less than three weeks ago, the very same Chris was menacing innocuous concerned non-vac parents. During a segment on measles immunizations, Chris pontificated that they should be mandatory. When his co-anchor Alisyn Camerota reasoned that the issue had “many layers” and that “everybody [had] their own reasons,” Chris minaciously responded, “You are right. You can’t just tell somebody they’re stupid and expect them to change because this is not an intellectual position, it’s an emotional position for parents so you have to appeal to them on that level: But, they also have to know there’s a price.”

“Swallow it,” and “a price,” Chris? You are no Tony. But, you are the lucky lad between Aly and Michaela. It’s a New Day now: So, be nice–be the “good stuff”!

Cuomo: Demonize Concerned Non-Vac Parents

February 6, 2015

“Not…inform the ignorant.” New Day co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo battled on CNN Tonight on whether the measles vaccine should be mandatory.

When host Don Lemon posed the question to Chris, he answered with an unqualified, “Ah, Yes! They should be…We have enforcement issues with schools…that have allowed exemptions….”

When Don winnowed Chris’ “short answer” to a simple “yes,” Aly replied, “I say it’s impossible because there are exemptions and we don’t want to do away with those exemptions. Some are for religious purposes–the Amish don’t get immunized, for instance, and every school makes an exemption for…[a] medical exemption.”

Elaborating, Aly said, “If you have a child, for instance, I’ve interviewed scores of these people: I have been covering this immunization measles case for a long time. There are parents whose first child was vaccine injured: they don’t want to vaccinate their second child. They don’t have to: Schools don’t make them vaccinate their second child.”

Querulously, Don queried, “Do you have the right to endanger someone else’s kid because you don’t want your kid to be vaccinated?”

With a mite too much machismo, Chris exclaimed, “No, you don’t have the right!” Pointing at Aly, he disdainfully declared, “And, also, Alisyn’s answer is a little, you know!”

Uncowed by her Italian stallion ND hubby, Aly defiantly riposted, “Go ahead! Try it! Bring it out! Bring it on!”

Realizing that he was no longer lecturing a compliant Kate Bolduan but rather a combative Camerota, Chris dialed it back, saying, “You’re answer is the same as mine. He [Don] said, ‘Should it be mandatory?’ Yes! Unless, of course, there is a proviso in there; of course, if you’re kid is immune compromised or if it’s an infant.”

In answer to a somewhat chastened Chris, Aly answered, “Yeah. Well, that’s how it is right now. That’s how it stands right now.”

Chris riposted, “Right…and that’s what I’m saying. That’s what it is. So, it comes down to enforcement.”

Sounding chauvinistic, Chris continued, “Where I think that you get a little outside the box on this–because, obviously, we’ve been talking about it on the show so much is–I think you have to be careful not to inform the ignorant on this.”

Subsequently, after Chris and Don dogmatically argued for vaccination, Aly reasoned that there were “many layers to this.” When Don declared, “People aren’t not [sic] vaccinating because they’re concerned about their immune system: They are, they’re doing it because of a faulty report, bad science,” an undaunted Aly answered, “Some, some are doing it that way. Everybody has their own reasons. Some people are doing it because they know somebody who they believe got injured by a vaccine….That’s why this is happening!”

Animatedly, Chris retorted, “Yes, parents think that they shouldn’t give vaccines: they’re wrong! So, don’t give credibility to their position!”

Calmly, Aly reasoned, “Yes, but this is the problem with what you are saying: You also can’t sweep it under the rug. I hear people say all the time say, ‘These anti-vaxers, they’re crazy: they’re wearing tinfoil hats….In other words, you’re a flat-earther if you have any questions about it.”

As Don compared “these anti-vaxers” to “climate change people,” Chris indicated that they were worse. Sounding a tad like Tony Soprano, Chris continued, “You are right: you can’t just tell somebody they’re stupid and expect them to change because this is not an intellectual position, it’s an emotional position for parents so you have to appeal to them on that level: With raised eyebrows and a menacing look, he added, ‘But, they also have to know there’s a price.'”

Turning to Don, Aly demanded, “How does demonizing them help?” Interjecting, Chris exclaimed, “It helps a little bit. There should be a price for their position!”

Sorry, Chris. Aly is right: Demonizing concerned anti-vax parents is not the answer. And, no one, including you, has a right to make these parents pay “a price for their position”!

CNN’s Mommy Kyra Disses FNC “Super Sperm” Daddy?

January 31, 2015

Phillips: “I love my husband [FNC’s John Roberts] but this man got me pregnant!” On Wednesday, CNN anchor Kyra Phillips appeared on Fox & Friends with her adoring “hubby” FNC correspondent John Roberts to hawk her new book The Whole Life Fertility Plan. On Friday, Kyra ditched her “boyfriend” JD on her own network CNN’s morning show, New Day, to appear with the man who she credited with getting her gravid.

On Wednesday (vid), Kyra played to the Fox News audience and curvy couch co-anchors Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade at the start of her segment, declaring, “You know, I’ve been trying to get on Fox for about ten years: And, as soon as I said, ‘I’m writing about my husband’s super sperm,’ bam, I was booked!” Explaining how she finally came to the decision to get pregnant, she disclosed that she had basically come to her wits end as a woman “approaching forty” who “was going through this horrible divorce,” who “had lost everything” in her home after a pipe burst upstairs,’ and who, while sitting on her stoop thought, ‘Oh, my god…this, this is it; I don’t have a family; [and] I don’t have children.” Gushing over her adoring “hubby,” she declared, “And, thank goodness, I met this wonderful man! After a period of time…he was open to going to fertility.”

On Friday, Kyra had a whole new sales pitch to plug her book to the ND curvy divan viewers and ND (and former FNC anchor Alisyn Camerota): Ditch her lover, and hook up with the doctor who made it all possible.* As she began the segment, Kyra iterated her F&F spiel saying, “I had spent my whole life working on my career, and then all of a sudden, there I was in Iraq covering the war: I was going through a horrible divorce; I came home–my house had flooded because a pipe burst upstairs; I had nothing; and I was sitting on my porch thinking, ‘Oh, my god, it’s never going to happen; and I had a huge anxiety attack.” Pointing to her fertility doctor and co-author of her book, Kyra exclaimed, “And, so, thank god for Jamie!” Giggling, she bawdily declared, “I like to say, ‘I love my husband but this man got me pregnant!”

Kyra’s Canuck “super sperm” JD was F&F “Friendly” Wednesday: But, on New Day, he was NSFW!

*New Day – 01/31/15 (@ 8:48 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: The author refers to John as “hubby” and “boyfriend” interchangeably, supra, because his marital relationship with Kyra seems uncertain: In a Huffington Post interview (05/25/11), he said, “There’s no plan for a wedding. I call her my wife, she refers to me as her husband….at our age, fiancee just doesn’t sound right.”]

Christine Romans & Bradley Cooper?

January 27, 2015

John Berman: Google their two names….You will thank me for it later! Early Start co-anchor John Berman reminded his co-host Christine Romans‘ fans of her infamous encounter with the American Sniper star Bradley Cooper almost three years ago. When the Christine was an American Morning co-anchor with Kiran Chetry, the two of them looked like giddy, giggly schoolgirls as they conducted their interview of “megastar” Cooper.

When Bradley was making the media rounds promoting an earlier film (Limitless trailer), he set foot on the set of CNN American Morning with co-anchor Ali Velshi sitting it out and letting the gals get some quality time with Cooper. During their interview of their dreamboat (vid), Christine and Kiran wondered whether he was “back on the market”: when he looked at Kiran and chuckled, she defensively responded, “We’re married. We don’t want to know but we’re asking for our friends.” Chiming in in her own defense, Christine replied, “Oh, yes. This is important for the people to know.”

After Cooper cagily evaded Kiran’s question about his love life, he answered Christine’s query as to his being a “megastar,” saying, his “life [had] not changed, honestly.” When Kiran jested, “So, you don’t have somebody to carry an umbrella around if it’s sunny,” Cooper facetiously riposted, “Of course, I do. That’s normal, right?” Subsequently, Christine joked, “And then somebody else to count the money, too.”

And, then the confab ended suddenly–in silence. As an addled Christine looked over at a similarly lovestruck Kiran, Cooper remarked, “So what else are we going talk about?” When Kiran responded, “Nothing else. Um.,” an amused Cooper looked across the set afar at Ali, exclaiming, “Wow! Total dead space. That was amazing! That was amazing!”

Abashed, Kiran remarked, “This never happens: we interview ambassadors, interview ex-Presidents. We never run out of things to say but now we’re like two school girls in a bar. This is terrible!” Still surprised, Cooper exclaimed, “That was incredible!”

Indeed it was. Must see CNN!

[Author’s aside: John’s remark re Christine was at the end of the 2:00 a.m. ET Early Start edition after Christine fulsomely praised Cooper’s cine, saying, “Wow! What a weekend for American Sniper! Breaking more box office records, the Clint Eastwood film starring Bradley Cooper made about, John, 65 million dollars over the weekend. That’s one of the best second weekends in Hollywood history: The film has now brought in more than 200 million dollars, putting it well on its way to becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time….I’m told that it is almost, almost surpassing Saving Private Ryan as the, as the biggest, biggest war movie.” Blushing, she hid her face initially: And, then she beamed as she gleefully stroked her neck repeatedly.]

Early Start – 01/26/15 (@ 4:59 a.m ET).
