Briggs Jabs at Jerrick: But, Hits Branson (Vets)

November 11, 2012

“Hot spot of the Midwest…Mike Jerrick’s favorite place.” Aly’s bosom? Of all days, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs chose Veterans Day to nettle benightedly his older guest co-host Mike Jerrick, and by extension, elder-friendly Branson, Missouri. Segueing to a segment with Lt. Colonel Oliver North about Branson’s Veterans Homecoming Week honoring World War II veterans on, Dave jested, “It’s the live entertainment hotspot of the Midwest…Branson, Missouri, Mike’s favorite place.”* Mitigating smartly Dave’s ill-timed barb, Mike interposed, “That’s right!”

Subsequently, Lt. Col. North interviewed several senior vets who had served from as far back as 1957. When he had concluded his segment and had tossed back to Dave, Mike, and co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, Dave deftly declared, “I’ve never been to Branson!” Immediately, Mike exclaimed, “I’ve been there! It’s great!” Chiming in, Aly declared, “You [Dave] would love it!”

Calling Aly out, inadvertently or not, Dave asked, “You’ve been, right?” In answer, Aly admitted, “No, I haven’t.”

Ebulliently, Briggs replied, “I would love it. I gotta go!”

When Aly interestingly indicated that she’d like to go DollyWood instead for her next vacation, Dave deftly declared, “We should do a show from Branson and a show from Dollywood.” In reply, Aly aptly exclaimed, “Bingo!”

As the denoement of Dave’s diminutive debacle concluded, Mike, ever the satyr of the dawn, subtly gestured toward Aly’s bosom, randily remarking, “You have so much in common with Dolly Parton!” Smiling, Aly racily replied, “I know that!” Rolling his eyes in mirth, Dave playfully snorted and wisely stayed silent this time.

Friel: Trace, How’s My Badonkadonk?

October 10, 2010

Atkins: “Well, it’s not as big as your belly.” Ouch? Fox & Friends Weekend entertainment reporter Courtney Friel got cheeky with country star Trace Adkins during an interview after his Grand Ole Opry performance last night. In return, Atkins gave the former Maxim model‘s rear a stinging slap figuratively. But, the only thing probably slightly bruised was her ego.

In her taped interview, Courtney asked Atkins about his feelings as to the Opry’s 85th anniversary, the recent Opry renovations post flood, and Donald Trump’s possible presidential run. Then, concluding her colloquy, Courtney saucily asked, “Final question, I’m seven months pregnant. I’m wondering how my badonkadonk‘s holding up?”* As Atkins goatishly stepped behind her for a better look, a frisky Courtney happily turned her backside toward him so that he could check it out. After his conspicuous, carnal inspection, he looked her in the eyes and deadpanned, “Well, it’s not as big as your belly.”

Smiling but flushed, Courtney pointed to herself, importuning, “I’ll be a hot momma?” Chuckling heartily, Atkins replied, “I probably–should I not have said that?” As Courtney tittered, Atkins continued, “I don’t know. There is no correct answer to the question that she just asked me, people.” Giggling, Courtney concluded, “Well, thanks so much for talking to us.” Pointing to her derriere with his eyes, Atkins artfully added, “It’s beautiful.”

When the interview footage ended, Courtney appeared onscreen suggestively with her left forefinger in her mouth. Looking at the camera coquettishly, she explained, “He is the authority on the “Honky Tonk Badonkadonks, right?” Shrugging her shoulders defensively, she continued, “So, I had to ask him about it. Now, I feel a little better, being preggers and all.” Then, tossing back to co-hosts Dave Briggs and Alisyn Camerota, Courtney remarked, “Next hour, we’re going to be talking to Dolly Parton so I do hope that you will stick around.”

Beaming broadly and arching his eyebrows, Dave randily replied, “Oh, we will!” Chiming in, Aly (Dolly devotee and “impersonator”) racily remarked, “Absolutely! You’ll have to ask her about some of your other body parts. She also is an authority.” Then, stating the obvious to the audience, Dave added, “Yeah. Use your imagination.”

As to Courtney’s bum, assuredly, Atkins had to use very little.
