“A very special opportunity.” Former CNN anchor Kiran Chetry made her long awaited media return Thursday night as an E! correspondent at the NYC premier of the NBC series Smash–strangely without a word to her loyal fans (via Twitter or Facebook). After promising her American Morning audience almost six months ago that she would return “soon” for ” a “very special opportunity,” the Nepalese lovely finally appeared on the red carpet at the bash at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art last Thursday night. Not surprisingly, the sexy sharp veteran news anchor interviewed Smash stars including Uma Thurman, Debra Messing, Katherine McPhee, Jack Davenport, and Angelica Houston with her characteristic ease.
Whether Kiran’s Smash appearance as an E! reporter constitutes her “very special opportunity” is not known to the author. It seems in some doubt since Kiran gave no alert to her many Facebook fans or Twitter followers about her hit.
Regardless, it was a real treat to see Kiran back in front of the camera where she belongs. It had been far too long since her AM namaskaar. Hopefully, she will stick around.
[Author’s aside: Kiran’s Fox & Friends fans may well remember another of her reports on the red carpet when she playfully “took a nap” on it.]
