Hemmer’s Cryptic Condolences to MacCallum

April 23, 2013

Martha’s secret pain revealed. Yesterday, America’s Newsroom co-host Bill Hemmer offered his heartfelt sympathy to his grateful co-anchor Martha MacCallum without any explanation as the show ended. Similarly, Martha provided her own emotional enigmatic aside four days earlier in a Tweet, simply saying, “Thanks for your kind notes.” For AN viewers and Martha’s other fans who were left in the dark, Carpe Diem discovered the secret source of her pain.

When a CD reader asked the author what tragedy had befallen Martha after AN had aired, the author decided to find out. In his research, he detected the answer from a funeral home obit in Martha’s small hometown of Wyckoff, New Jersey (population of 16,696): It was for a certain Elizabeth Jane Bowes MacCallum who had died on April 14.

In the Wyckoff Vander Plaat Funeral Home encomium, Elizabeth MacCallum is described as the loving wife of her college sweetheart, Douglas C. MacCallum, Jr., of 57 years: But, more pertinently, for the Carpe Diem reader, it reveals that she was the devoted mother of three daughters, including Martha MacCallum Gregory. (Martha is married to Gregory Packaging Director and Vice-President Daniel John Gregory.) Reaffirming the obvious, Martha’s New York Times wedding announcement clearly evinces that the aforementioned Elizabeth B. MacCallum of Wyckoff, N.J. (and wife of Douglas C. MacCallum, Jr.) is the now deceased mother of Martha.

Condolences from this CD author, too, Martha!

Update: On the elder Ms. MacCallum’s online obit, there is a pic of Martha flanked by her two sisters seemingly: A loop of the family photos including Martha can be found at the top of the page on the left-hand side next to a “Click her to light a Memorial CANDLE” chyron.

The Fourth: Martha’s In-Dependence Day?

July 4, 2012

Shackled anew? Ironically, on Independence Day,  America’s Newsroom co-anchor Martha MacCallum returned to her show this morning with her wedding band clearly affixed to her ring finger. Only yesterday, the author had mused that Martha may have been declaring her independence a day early as she abandoned her marital ring on the Third (yet again) after an absence from AN: Not to mention, he noticed that the bronzed beauty evidenced no tan lines on her left ring finger.

As Martha’s fans may recall, Martha proudly displayed here connubial band in a 2011 (201) Magazine holiday family pictorial piece featuring her and her children. Shortly, thereafter, she quit donning it on American’s Newsroom. However, after the author noted its absence in mid-May in Carpe Diem, Martha began to embrace her wedding ring anew on the program.

But, yesterday, Martha abandoned her marital sign anew. Possibly, she was experimenting with the symbol of independence a day early. Nevertheless, she seems to have abandoned that idea today on the Fourth–or, forgive the pun, her “in-dependence day.”

Martha: Mrs. or Ms.? Regardless, Carpe Diem wishes AN‘s lovely lady well.

Update (04/05/12): Martha had her wedding band off her ring finger again today: Perchance, she now trusts her fans to remain loyal regardless of her marital status.

The Third: Martha’s Independence Day?

July 3, 2012

Unshackled? MacCallum’s wedding ring missing anew. Before her show today, FNC co-anchor Martha MacCallum Tweeted, “Happy to be back in America’s Newsroom today.” Subsequently, when she appeared on the program, guest co-anchor Gregg Jarrett enthusiastically saluted her, saying, “It is terrific to have you back: everybody missed you!” Beaming, the blonde beauty responded, “Thank you so much! It is very good to be back!” Naked.

Yes, naked again. Almost immediately after Martha expressed how wonderful it was to be back on AN, she gestured with her left hand: gone again was her wedding ring (given to her almost a decade ago).

As Carpe Diem readers may remember, Martha quit wearing her connubial band after a (201) Magazine holiday family profile but began anew after the author noted it. Ironically, today, on the eve of the Fourth, Martha seemed to signal her personal independence day had started early: i.e., she wore no wedding ring and sported no tan line which might suggest that she had ever done so.

Martha’s Independence Day? No fireworks. Hopefully.

Martha MacCallum: Ms. or Mrs? Ring, Ring!

May 10, 2012

Nude no more–at least, not today. After a day off, America’s Newsroom co-host Martha MacCallum returned this morn to her show apparently sporting her connubial bling again. After flashing her naked ring finger at her AN audience for seemingly almost a month and a half or more, the blond beauty appeared ready to rein in any rumor about her current marital status. In fact, not only did she don a silver or platinum band on her marital ring finger but also she placed another upon her corresponding left hand digit as if to accent her point all the more.*

Martha Bowes MacCallum: Still Mrs. Daniel John Gregory? So, she seemed to say–today.

AN – 05/10/12 (@ 9:09 a.m. ET)

Update: Actually, Martha’s rings appeared a day earlier (i.e., her day off of AM), apparently: she seeme to be wearing both during her May 9th interview of Ann Romney.  America’s News Headquarters (airing) – 05/13/12 (@ 1:42 p.m. et seq. ET)

Martha MacCallum: Mrs. or Ms.?

March 28, 2012

“Miss”ing her marital band. This morning, America’s Newsroom co-host Martha MacCallum did not don her wedding ring as usual. Initially, Martha seemed to deftly hide her left hand with her right one. However, on a few occasions, Martha did reveal her naked ring finger clearly.*

Perhaps, the blond beauty married to Gregory Packaging, Inc. VP Daniel John Gregory for almost ten years simply forgot her connubial symbol today, or, perchance, it was being cleaned. In fact, Martha did not appear ready to attract too much attention from any new male admirer. Rather, Martha donned her more demure apparel, sporting a short-sleeved, crew-necked, and long-hemmed fir green dress.

Incidentally or not, Martha was profiled by (201) Magazine in an article entitled “Holiday Look: Martha MacCallum and her family get dressed up to celebrated” on December 9, 2011, that seemingly featured her herself and her three children but not her hubby. Her man Daniel was mentioned but he did not appear in any of the seven pics that accompanied Martha’s profile. However, Martha was wearing her wedding ring in the photos.

Martha: Mrs. or Ms.? Stay tuned.
