Megyn: No Body Shots

October 11, 2010

Kelly: “There’s nothing wrong with sex appeal and there’s nothing wrong with sex.” Today America Live co-host Megyn Kelly adamantly defended coming-of-age Miley Cyrus’ sexy new video, “Who Owns My Heart.” In a segment with Parents Television Council president Tim Winter, who took issue with the young music star for her video’s risque content, Megyn observed, “Miley Cyrus, yes, she’s seventeen years old but she is, she looks like, she acts like a woman now….Isn’t she entitled to be a little sexy?”* Elaborating somewhat lubriciously, Megyn continued, “I know, I know she’s racy in this in black underwear, black and lace eye mask, scantily dressed, and there’s gyrating and there’s caressing herself.” Then, she queried, “But…how long does she owe this obligation to these young girls to sort of maintain a G-rated image?”

As Winter began to respond that most parents did not want Miley to follow the steps of Britney Spears from wholesome Disney star to wayward idol, Megyn asked, “What do you think this is going to do to the little girls who have loved her as little Hannah Montana?” When Winter replied that it was the “latest symptom in…a very broad epidemic of sexualization of little girls” in the modern culture, Megyn responded, “You know, some people would talk about it as sexual liberation as sort of–I’m not talking about the little girls–but sort of getting to the point where you’re almost at the age of maturity–Miley turns eighteen in November–and…coming into your own as a woman and understanding your own sex appeal.” Concluding her spiel, she declared, “There is nothing wrong with sex appeal and there’s nothing wrong with sex….How old does she have to be before that piece of her personality, her personhood can be embraced?”

Ironically, of late, Megyn herself has failed to appreciate her own sex appeal. Rather, than flaunting her sexy stems as usual, she has recently eschewed any shots below the waist. Perhaps, Megyn should ask herself when she will embrace anew that “piece of her personality, her personhood”?

Update: Johnny Dollar kindly e-mailed the explanation for AL‘s recent lack of “body shots” of Megyn. He revealed, “Megyn is in a different studio. Hers is being revamped for election-night duties. The shots are close-in because it’s a smaller space.”

Major “Maxim” Garrett

September 4, 2010

Good grief? Megyn dishes on former office husband. America Live anchor Megyn Kelly took puckish pleasure at Fox News’ White House correspondent Major Garrett’s expense on his final day at FNC Friday. As the segment with Garrett began and after an job stats/Obama story, Megyn said, “Major, I’m supposed to ask you about these numbers and what the President said but we’ve already talked about them…so I got to get down to business with you. Your last day on the air with Fox News Channel: aren’t you gonna miss us?* After Garrett assured her that he would, explained his move to National Journal as a congressional correspondent, and then bantered a bit more, Megyn mischievously remarked, “Well, we were officemates….I remember when Major and I first moved in together…when I started at Fox News Channel. And, do you remember, Major, you were not there when I first moved into our office. You remember?”

Smiling and nodding his head abashedly, Garrett replied, “Right. Yes, I do.” Enjoying a bit of Schadenfreude, Megyn asked, “And, you remember what was there?” Grinning broadly, Garrett responded, “Yes, I do.” With a gleeful glint in her eye, Megyn queried, “Do you want to tell them, or should I?” Blushing, Garrett confessed, “Uh, Maxim Magazine.”

Roaring with laughter, Megyn recounted, “Bruce Becker, our then deputy bureau chief walks me into the office….Not only are [Garrett’s] gym clothes all over his half of the office but Maxim Magazine was like open!” Before giggling, she added, “Maxim Mag: you know, it’s not Playboy but it’s not exactly a Disney publication either.” Still blushing, Garrett jested, “It’s not Good Housekeeping: no, it’s not. No.”

Having had her fun with Garrett, Megyn turned serious and expressed her deep respect for him. Then, she declared, “Major, we are gonna miss you desperately.” In response, Garrett stated, “Well, I appreciate that….It’s been a been a privilege and an honor to serve [the Fox audience] and what I’ve tried to do every day at this job…is serve this audience as best I can and as aggressively as I can.” Megyn concluded, “Alright, MG. Well, we will miss you. All our love and our sincere thanks. See you soon, Friend.”

Assuredly, the Fox News audience will miss Garrett, too. Fair and balanced: a job well done, Major.

[Author’s aside: During the interview, Major Garrett provided two of his e-mail address for those who wished to write to him. They are as follow: majorgarrett@me.com (iPhone) and megcubed@hotmail.com.]

Bocephus Gets Bawdy W/ Gomez & Gretch

June 17, 2009

From suggestively serenading Disney teen sensation Selena Gomez to flagrantly flirting with Fox & Friends’ own co-host Gretchen Carlson, Hank Williams, Jr., got bawdy today. Promoting his album 127 Rose Avenue by performing all morning live outside on the “veranda” for F&F’s summer concert series, “All American Summer,” Bocephus was in rare form. In the middle of the hour when co-anchor Steve Doocy indicated that Hank and his band coffee needed a pot of coffee, Hank proffered a presentiment of things to come: he laughingly replied, “And a few Bloody Mary[s].”

Perhaps, F&F did serve up a few to him. Mid-show, Hank serenaded the star of Wizards of Waverly Place as she stood silently next to him.* Gazing at her from behind his sunglasses,  he sang, “Watermelon lip gloss, kiss beneath the swamp moss on a moonlit night”: perhaps, playing along, Selena put her palm to her chest and then to her forehead as if in disbelief. Continuing Hank crooned, “Bubble gum perfume” and then pointed to her as he sang,” Well-placed tattoo above her hiney, high, oh my!” Selena smiled, her jaw dropped, and she coyly put both her hands to her face. Possibly, she needed to be in the “Princess Protection Program” figuratively, too.

During Hank’s interview by the F&F co-hosts, Brian reminded him of his promise to take him fishing. Gretch interjected, “Wait a minute! I’ll go to Monday Night Football with you.” Taking her hand eagerly and cradling it in both of his, Hank readily responded, “Honey, I will take you anywhere: I’d even go to a tennis match with you.” As an aside to the audience, Gretch exclaimed, “I hope that my husband’s not watching.”
