Shep Preempts Rick (and F&FW)!

September 10, 2017

Seriously? Preempting FNC’s chief meteorologist Rick Reichmuth (and Fox & Friends Weekend) this Sunday morn mid-show for Shepard Smith seems like one of the stupidest programming decisions that FNC has made. Such disrespect to Rick, the F&FW co-hosts, and their fans is almost unforgivable. Rick and the F&FW crew were doing a much better job than this interloper and his crew are doing. Get a grip, Fox News!

[Update: At least, Rick reappeared on “Shep’s show” at 8:38 a.m. ET.]

Kiran’s Lucky Guy

July 29, 2017

“My hubby Isaac Greaney.” This morning comely former CNN/FNC morning news anchor Kiran Chetry announced that she has remarried. In a Tweet to her followers, she wrote, “Congrats to my hubby Isaac Greaney head of @sidleyaustin team & rest of @SwimAcrossSound cmte for success @SAAswim.”

Why is Kiran’s guy lucky? Obviously, his Nepalese lovely is brilliant, sharp, and sexy. Not to mention altruistic. Last night, she Tweeted a video of her finishing her “2K @SAAswim today” with a tease of “big event is tomorrow.” Today, she Tweeted, “Not a swimmer. But I did it! For @SAAswim and the fight against cancer.” And, yes, Kiran was in fine form in her black bikini as she did her 2K (vid) and the big event (pic).

Who is Kiran’s lucky guy? As to his vocation, Greaney is a “partner in Sidley’s litigation group in New York” who joined the firm in 2004 and “has focused his practice on commercial litigation and disputes according to Sidney.com (which includes his pic). Re Greaney’s firm, its Sidley.com site indicates that it is a 150-year-old firm that “comprises a diverse group of legal professionals from many cultures who are dedicated to teamwork, collaboration and superior client service.” According to Greaney’s Twitter account, (which includes a second photo), he is from New York City.

Best wishes, Kiran! And, congratulations, Isaac!

New Day Gets Dirty

July 28, 2017

Gay Cantone makes Cuomo uncomfortable: I only got up…for him because he promised me sex!” New Day co-hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota had NO idea what they were getting into this morning as they welcomed Mario Cantone who plays [vid] Anthony Scaramucci on Comedy Central’s The President Show to their CNN curvy couch.* In fact, Aly got a salacious unsolicited plug for her new book, Amanda Wakes Up.

After introducing Cantone, Aly gushed, “Great to see you!” Looking at his watch, he vociferously queried, “What time is it? What time do you kids get up in the morning?” Laughing, Aly answered, “This is late for us.”

Gesticulating animatedly, Cantone declared, “This is brutal!” Pointing to Chris, he exclaimed, “I only got up for you!” Turning to Aly and pointing anew at Chris, Cantone continued, “For him, because he promised me sex! That’s why I got up!”

Blushing, Aly turned to Chris with her hand to her mouth, whispering, “O my god!” As she elbowed Chris in the arm playfully, Chris jokingly deflected, “With you!” Having none of Chris’s diversion, Cantone picked up the CNN couch table flower vase and moved closer toward Chris, saying, “Thank you for the lovely flowers! Thank you for the flowers, Chris! I appreciate it!”

After that uproarious opening, they dutifully discussed Cantone’s shows, its political import. Yada, yada, yada.

But, when the segment and show concluded, the hilarity returned. Cavone looked down at Aly’s book and then looked up at her, exclaiming, “Good luck on your book!” Beaming, Aly replied, “Thank you!”

Bawdily, Cavone jested, “What’s it called? Amanda Wakes Up with an Erection? Giggling uncontrollably, a reddening Aly exclaimed, “Oh, my god!” Striking Cavone on the shoulder with the back of her hand, she laughed, “Get you a new beach read, you dirty, dirty mind! Hugging Cavone and giving him a kiss on the cheek, she remarked, “You’re so great!”

Yes, it was vintage Aly and the boys on the Fox & Friends Weekend curvy couch. Oops, change of venue. Today, it was Aly and the boys on the New Day curvy couch!

*New Day – 07/28/17 (@ 8:52 a.m.).

Abby, Pete, & Clayton: F&FW’s “New Team”?

June 26, 2017

Clayton: “It’s great to have the band back together again.” Yes, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host returned Sunday as he had said: And F&FW seemed bound and determined to asservate that Clayton still held his seat on the curvy couch after Carpe Diem‘s article “Piro: This is My First Day.” In fact, co-anchors Abby Huntsman, Pete Hegseth, and Clayton Morris himself appeared to emphasize that, yes, Clayton–and Pete–were on F&FW‘s new team with its new queen Abby: Ergo, Todd Piro who declared “This is my first day” and introduced himself to F&F fans and F&F co-hosts with a June 14th segment (including bio vid) entitled ““Welcome to the F&F Family, Todd Piro!” was not replacing Clayton–at least, not yet.

As the opening began, Abby remarked, “And, welcome back to the to both of you! It’s so fun to have you two back!” In reply, Clayton declared, “It’s great to have the band back together again.” In response, Abby exclaimed, “It is!” Chiming in, Pete animatedly added, “Indeed! In the new studio, first time in the new studio, too.”

Turning to Abby, Clayton said, “And, you had that big announcement.” [Abby and hubs Jeff Livingston’s June 17 proclamation that she is preggers for the first time–a girl due around Thanksgiving (vid)]. Abby playfully retorted, “That you missed, Clayton!” Slightly defensively, Clayton answered, “I already knew it: I was privy to that.” Then, he jested, “And, I’ve gained an extra two pounds.”

Laughing and pointing to Clayton, Abby joked, “We’re growing together, Pete!”

Putting an exclamation on the apparent point of the opening segment, Pete responded, “We’re all growing together….And, this show is growing together as well.”

Welcome aboard, Pete! It’s about time FNC says it–officially!

[Author’s aside: As to Pete’s inclusion, supra, nota bene, FNC as it is wont to do with its new F&FW co-anchors still has not announced Pete Hegseth’s ascension to the F&FW curvy couch from contributor status.]

 

 

 

 

Pete: Tucker’s Heir?

March 26, 2017

Bringing gravitas back! Strangely, Fox & Friends Weekend “co-host” Pete Hegseth is still listed as a contributor for Fox News Channel (FNC) in his FNC bio and on his Twitter page.  But, he appears to be the unannounced co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend a la his apparent predecessor Tucker Carlson and his seeming co-host Abby Huntsman. Perhaps, the F&FW suits have learned from the time they awkwardly replaced Fox & Friends co-anchors Page Hopkins, Kelly Wright, and Greg Kelly with Ainsley Earhardt, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris without notice to F&FW fans.

Abby and Ainsley’s loose lips? Friday, Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley sat between guest co-hosts Pete and Clayton on the curvy couch and Abby Huntsman was the newsreader. Before Abby read the headlines at the top of the seven o’clock hour (ET), she pointed to Pete, Clayton, and Ainsley, declaring, “My weekend crew, Ainsley! You’re sitting right…[inaudible]….I love it!” Even though she was the queen of the F&F curvy couch, Ainsley sweetly cooed, “I know! I love being a part of you all! Thank you for letting me do this!”

On Fox & Friends Weekend (Saturday) and today, Pete’s ascendancy to F&FW co-anchor seemed crystal clear. Yesterday, at the top of each hour, the names and Twitter addresses of Pete, Abby, and Clayton were displayed as chyrons at the bottom of the screen underneath them: For the doubting Thomases at the top of the second hour, Clayton seemed to adduce evidence to Pete’s apparent new position, saying, “Pete, Abby, and Clayton in the house for you.” On F&FW today, the chyrons of the names and Twitter addresses of Pete, Abby, and Clayton were back at the top of each hour.

Perhaps, it is a mite premature, Pete: But, welcome aboard the F&FW ship! Your first mate Abby is a young smart beauty who is heir to her father’s political acumen and Clayton is the entertaining class clown who loves UFO’s, comic book cines, and the latest in tech products: And, you bring Tucker’s gravitas to the mix with your Princeton and Harvard education; much more importantly, your service to the nation; and your dedication to the nation’s vets.

For Pete’s sake, Pete, do yourself and your F&FW fans proud! Break a leg!

 

 

 

POTUS: F&F “Most Honest Morning Show”

February 16, 2017

CNN “Very Fake News”! President Trump finally gave CNN reporter Jim Acosta a question–in fact, quite a few at his presser this afternoon: And, POTUS did not hold back in his answers to George Clooney’s wannabe doppelganger. Before giving Jim his series of queries (in answer to an earlier question), POTUS remarked, “I’m not okay when [a story] is fake: I mean I watch CNN. It’s so much anger and hatred, and just the hatred: I don’t watch it anymore….” When President Trump finally called on Jim, Jim remarked, “Thank you very much. And, just for the record, we don’t hate you. I don’t hate you.” POTUS acerbically replied, “Okay. Well…ask [CEO honcho] Jeff Zucker how he got his job, okay!”

In a subsequent query, Jim asked, “If the information coming from those leaks is real, then how can the stories be fake?” President Trump retorted, “The reporting is fake!” Elaborating, POTUS said, “I’ve been involved with this stuff all my life: But, I’m involved so I know when you are telling the truth and when you’re not. I just see many, many untruthful things. And, I’ll tell you what else I see: I see tone! You know the word ‘tone’: The tone is such hatred!”

Seeming to contrast FNC’s Fox & Friends with CNN’s New Day, President Trump continued, “The tone is such hatred! I watched this morning a couple of the network[s]. And, I have to say, ‘Fox & Friends in the morning, they’re very honorable people’…not because they’re good ’cause they hit me also when I do something wrong. But, they have the most honest morning show! That’s all I can say: It’s the most honest!”

Unfortunately, President Trump seems to have a point.  In their apparent running feud with POTUS in tandem with CNN proper and their boss Zucker, co-hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota seem to have not quite recovered from their shock that not only did The Donald actually run, win the GOP primary, and win in convincing fashion but also he is doing what he promised to do to “Make America Great Again.” And, the anti-Trump vibe seems to run through the show each and every morning without even any pretense of objectivity.

The author has faithfully watched CNN’s New Day ever since it’s inception as American Morning with Kiran Chetry and John Roberts. Furthermore, he has been a fan of Alisyn Camerota since her days with Kiran on Fox & Friends Weekend. Ergo, he harbors no animus toward Aly (or Chris): But, the New Day co-anchors do need to pull themselves out of their funk and to start to cover President Trump and the news fairly for their faithful viewers.

A new New Day is sorely needed!

[Author’s aside: The subtitle is derived from POTUS’ response to Jim’s final query with regard to CNN being called “fake news”: President Trump announced, “I’m changing it from ‘fake news,’ though–‘very fake news'”!]

Sweet Abby: “Mean Girl”?

December 27, 2016

On Christmas Day, new Fox & Friends co-host Abby Huntsman earned her “lump of coal.” Yes, believe it or not, the incredibly gorgeous and usually very sweet and smart Huntsman gal can be a “mean girl.” On Christmas Day, when her family was out feeding the proverbial “least among us” at a homeless shelter a la their family tradition, Abby advocated outing and exploiting one’s relatives who had an alcohol problem.

During a segment entitled “Social Media Faux Pas: What Not to do” that included “post photos of gifts, not family; on your phone at dinner; and post pics of drunk family.”* After concurring with the first two, a smiling Abby disagreed with the third. When guest co-host Peter Doocy said, “Yeah, then photos of drunk relatives,” Abby smiling asserted, “No, those are grea[t]: I think that’s a, I think that’s a yes!” With an evil glint in her eye, Abby added, “Not just photos though! I mean get the video camera out when that happens. Get the memories!”

Joining in Abby’s schadenfreude, F&FW meteorologist Rick Reichmuth responded, “Seriously, I think that is fair game! I do! I think that’s fair game.”

Gesticulating toward her sadly sympathetically concurring colleague, Abby coldly asserted, “If they’re going to be drunk and act that way, you can film them!”

Perhaps, the alcoholics who are hungry on Christmas Day may have second thoughts about stopping by the homeless center in Salt Lake City next year. It is laudable that the Huntsmans feed them on Christmas Day as a family tradition: But, if Abby has her camera out next year, they may want to move on.

Abby, alcoholism is no joke: And, I believe that you know it. Making sport of those who are its victims is mean and uncharitable at best. And, Rick should know it, too.

Hopefully, Abby, you (and Rick) will not deserve your lumps of coal next Christmas. During this season of Christmas and Hanukkah (as always), the hurting need love. And, you and your Fox & Friends fans should embrace them, not scorn them.

*Fox & Friends Weekend (12/25/16) – @ 9:05 a.m. ET.

Abby Leaves F&FF

December 14, 2016

Heather: “We’ll certainly miss you here.” As Fox & Friends First fans awakened to the very first segment of F&FF, co-host Heather Childers announced her veritable co-anchor Abby Huntsman‘s exit from the show to being F&F Weekend co-anchor. At the 5:07 a.m. ET moment, Heather proclaimed, “Well, congratulations are in order this morning: Abby Huntsman named the new co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend.” As Abby alluringly chimed in a protracted “aww” as a montage of her F&FW clips ran, Heather continued, “Of course, Abby, you’ve been here and on the curvy couch for a while now: But, now we are making it official, and you’ll join the team of Fox & Friend Weekend as they celebrate their highest rated year in history….We’ll certainly miss you here: But, glad that you’re staying part of the Fox & Friends family!”

In response, Abby amiably answered, “I love being here with you, Heather! Thanks so much! I’m excited for this new adventure, a new chapter! But, I love our audience: I love the Fox & Friends family!”

And, the F&FW audience appears to love her back. Whether Abby can live up to her predecessors, e.g., Kiran Chetry, Alisyn Camerota, Anna Kooiman, etc. remains to be seen. But, she does seem to be off to a good start.

Congrats anew, Abby!

 

Pete Hegseth: Next F&FW Co-host?

December 14, 2016

“Looking forward to many weekends together, [Abby].” Fox & Friends Weekend crew being finalized? Of late, former F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman abdicated as queen of the F&FW curvy couch for the Land Down Under, and erstwhile F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson followed suit for his very own eponymous show, Tucker Carlson Tonight. Yesterday, Fox & Friends First co-host Abby Huntsman was named the new queen of the F&FW curvy couch.

Re one permanent F&FW co-anchor seat left outstanding, Fox News Insider declared, “Abby Huntsman, Clayton Morris and a rotating male co-host for the perfect start to your Saturday and Sunday.” However, frequent fill-in co-host Pete Hegseth may have hinted at the actual answer to whom the next F&FW co-anchor is. In a congratulatory Tweet to Abby yesterday, he wrote, “Huge congrats to @HuntsmanAbby! Talented, smart, and fun. Well earned”: Concluding, Pete remarked, “Looking forward to many weekends together. A fun ride ahead, indeed!”

Early this morning, Abby Tweeted, “Thanks Pete!! See you this weekend ;).”

Hmm: It appears that “rotating male anchor” just might be Pete. And, that’s not a bad thing.

Abby Huntsman: F&FW Cohost–Finally!

December 13, 2016

Fox & Friends Weekend finally has an official queen of the curvy couch (after Anna Kooiman‘s abdication of her crown to reign Down Under). Today, The Hill‘s Joe Concha reported, “Suzanne Scott, Fox News’s executive vice president of programming, says the 30-year-old Huntsman will make her official debut this Saturday.” Of course, FNC signaled Abby’s coronation-to-be when it celebrated twenty years of FNC with Abby, Tucker Carlson, and Clayton Morris as the face of F&FW on October 7 (vid via J$P).[Carpe Diem got the hint: Cf. “F&F: ‘Abby Huntsman: Co-host Fox & Friends.'”] Chiming in that day, Abby Tweeted,  “Grew up watching …was so humbled to join the crew this morning to celebrate 20 years for !”

Approximately, a month later, (November 8), FNC honcho Bill Shine seemed to send a clear signal: F&FW fans were introduced to not only to her handsome hubby Jeff (pic of the two lovers) but also to her only her lovable golden retriever, Golden George. (Cf. Carpe Diem article entitled “F&FW’s Abby Huntsman Marks Her Territory.”) Within two weeks thereafter (November 20), two of Abby’s gorgeous sisters joined her for a cooking segment. [Pic of the three sibs and a nephew.] And, only ten days ago (December 3), the F&FW audience was introduced to Abby’s parents, Jon and Mary Kaye Huntsman, in a chyroned “Meet Abby’s Parent’s segment [pic]. Yesterday, the author penned an article in which Abby was deemed the “[F&F] apparent co-anchor: Perchance, Shine finally realized that the F&FW fans were tired of the wait until Abby became their “bride”–or, rather, the new F&FW Queen of the Curvy Couch.

Congratulations, Abby! Much success!

 

Chagrined Clayton Leaves

December 12, 2016

The Curvy Couch! Poor Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris was aptly chastised by F&F fans for his sloppy sartorial slip Sunday: So, a la F&F weekday co-anchor Brian Kilmeade, he left the curvy couch chagrined. As the final half hour of the show began, apparent co-anchor Abby Huntsman remarked, “Alright, so, we’ve wanted to get [to] this all morning long but we’ve waited until now. Clayton, you don’t know about this: But people [have] been emailing in all morning long in about your tie.” Turning to Clayton and pointing to his tie which was tucked under his crotch, she smiling said, “They’re saying that it’s too long.” As possible future co-host Pete Hegseth leaned in for a closer look, Abby and Pete began to laugh uncontrollably.

Continuing, Abby remarked, “I’m going to read one of the emails here….They say, ‘Clayton and Pete, is this a new fashion trend started by Trump–tying your ties too long?” In answer, Clayton explained, “Blake wants to know that? No, it was pure laziness, Blake….Here’s how dumb I was this morning. I tied it this morning, and I said, ‘You know what, that’s too long…but I’ll be sitting down and no one will notice.” Looking into the camera with a grin at the viewer, he added, “But, then I forgot that we’re on in front of millions of people—and, you did notice!”

Chuckling, Clayton stood up and tucked his tie deep into his pants: And, then promptly he exited the curvy couch a la Kilmeade. Addressing the audience with a smile, Abby said, “Thanks for your emails, guys: We always want to know what you think, about the fashion.”

At least, Clayton did not have his jacket buttoned as he sat–as Fox & Friends co-hosts once did before they apparently got a sartorial tutorial. It is not the first fashion faux pas on the curvy couch and, most assuredly, it will not be last. Hopefully.

*Fox & Friends – 12/11/16 (@ 9:35 a.m. ET).

Tucker’s Last Day

November 5, 2016

Carlson: I’m going to miss you guys. I really am!” Today was Tucker Carlson‘s finale as Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor. As the show began, co-host Clayton Morris remarked, “Let’s address the elephant in the room because I’m a little misty today: This is Tucker’s last day sitting on the curvy couch with us on Fox & Friends [Weekend]. I’m going to miss you terribly!” Explaining Tucker’s departure, Clayton continued, “But, you’re not going very far. You’re going to be going to the seven p.m. prime time here on Fox News Channel.”

Chiming in, putative F&FW co-anchor Abby Huntsman declared, “It’s a big deal! We’re so excited for you.”

Turning to Abby, Tucker responded, “Thank you!” Then, he added, “I’m sad about it, actually. I haven’t thought about it. I’m excited: But, I’m sad this is my last day. It’s so totally bizarre.”

From the F&FW co-host who told viewers that he did not eat food on TV and who signed his name with printed initials, Tucker has come a long way–especially for his long-time viewers who watched him long ago on CNN when he seemed to be the smug, smart-alecky bow-tie wearing co-host of Crossfire. [Celebrating Tucker’s evolution on the curvy couch: F&FW vid “A Look Back.”] Initially, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Caller seemed reluctant to embrace his additional role as an FNC edutainment co-anchor: But, Bill Shine–with the invaluable coaching of former co-anchor Alisyn Camerota eased Tucker onto the curvy couch, replacing the charming, self-effacing Dave Briggs.

Tucker, it was always evident that you were on the Fox News A-Team, and you brought real gravitas to the F&FW curvy couch: When major news events occurred, you would oft stay put on the show as co-anchor or pundit when your co-hosts other than Aly oft vacated theirs. Ergo, it is no surprise that you are getting your new show at 7 p.m. ET. Congratulations!

F&FW’s Abby Huntsman Marks Her Territory

October 22, 2016

“This is my husband Jeff!” Fox & Friends Weekend‘s apparent new queen of the curvy couch, Abby Huntsman, staked her claim to her territory seemingly, by showcasing her much beloved golden retriever, George [pic], and introducing her hubby Jeff to her fans–twice. If FNC co-honcho Bill Shine will not say it overtly yet, Abby came quite close this morn.

Promoting F&FW yesterday, Abby Tweeted, “My golden retriever George would like you all to know he’ll make his debut tomorrow morning at 9:50am in his Halloween costume.” And, he did in F&F‘s penultimate segment. As George walked the F&FW red carpet in his lobster costume, Abby gushed, “And, there comes my pup: There’s George!” As her pup tried to shake off his unwieldy canine garb, Abby laughed, “He’s not liking his costume very much!” Petting George to cheer him up, she exclaimed, “Hey, Buddy!”

Then, as George reached the end of his “‘dog’walk,” Abby proudly said, “Anybody who follows me on social media knows George.” Then, ever so nonchalantly, F&FW co-anchor Tucker Carlson queried, “Who…is walking George?” Pointing to George’s human escort, a smiling Abby proclaimed, “This is my husband Jeff!” Hugging her hubby, Abby said, “Welcome to, to Fox & Friends!”

Subsequently, in the final segment, Abby reigned from her central seat with hubby Jeff [photo] (with George at their feeet) as Tucker and fill-in co-host Pete Hegseth flanked them. Pointing to Abby, Jeff, and George, Pete remarked, “Look who we have here, two of the most…the three Huntsmans!” Embracing her guy, Abby anew announced, “This is is my husband Jeff!” Turning to her love, Abby remarked, “This your first time here–and you did it for the dog costume segment.” Answering his gorgeous gal, Jeff declared, “Well, I feel honored to be here. Honored to be here!”

First time to be here”: Even if Shine explicitly said it, it appears that Abby now has three husbands–her two TV ones and her real one.

Update: This afternoon/evening, Abby responded to her fans requesting a pic of George in his lobster costume by providing this one.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, Abby Huntsman!”

October 15, 2016

So introduced Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Tucker Carlson his lovely co-host Abby Huntsman. “Abby Huntsman,” echoed F&FW co-host Clayton Morris. For the first time since Fox & Friends weekday introduced her on October 7 with a chyron as “Abby Huntsman: Co-host ‘Fox & Friends Weekend,” F&FW did similarly today when it introduced the three co-anchors with their names and their respective Twitter addresses at the start of each of the first three hours.

Now, Abby seems all the more certain to have secured her place on the F&FW curvy couch. On October 7, F&F identified Abby as co-host of F&FW, supra: Later, that very day, Abby Tweeted, “Grew up watching …was so humbled to join the crew this morning to celebrate 20 years for !” The next day, Fox News Tweeted, “TUNE IN: and host a jam-packed edition of now on Fox News Channel.”

After F&FW today, Abby Tweeted, “It’s official. I ❤️ my job! foxandfriends @ 1211 Avenue of… . In response, a fan Tweeted, you are a great addition to excellent work [thumbs-up emoji]: As if to remove any doubt as to her new status, Abby replied, “Thanks Lou!”

Abby, a “great addition” to F&FW? FNC has not made a clarion proclamation: But, it seems quite pellucid that Bill Shine has made his choice: I.e., Abby is the new it” gal on the curvy couch. Seemingly, not overly cowed by her apparent predecessor beauty Anna Kooiman‘s fab “booty-shaking” prowess [vid links included], Abby is not afraid to dance to bumper music on the curvy couch–or even to do the polka on the patio [vid via J$P]!

To paraphrase Axl Rose [vid], welcome to the Gotham jungle (on the F&FW curvy couch), Abby! Beauty and the beast–er, beasts!

Bizarro F&FW Moment

October 1, 2016

“Fan”: “Bill Clinton is a rapist!” Wow! After a segment whether comedy shows like Saturday Night Live should take down candidates, e.g., Donald Trump, an F&FW “fan” seemed to want to do the very same to Hillary Clinton a la SNL style.

As this morning’s co-hosts Tucker Carlson, Abby Huntsman, and Ed Henry began the subsequent block on the patio promoting the awareness of shelter pets, an apparent young Alex Keaton appeared (amongst the fans) behind them in shirt and tie atop a police barrier. Pulling up his tie and opening his shirt to reveal a tee that had the face of former President Bill Clinton with the epithet “RAPIST” on it, he began to shout, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!” When he did, security rushed him and he subsequently began to cross the barrier toward Abby, Tucker, and Ed. The young man continued to exclaim, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!” After he was taken away, he seemingly escaped security for a moment and then returned behind the day’s co-anchors , exclaiming the same remark with renewed vigor. And, security returned to facilitate his another exit.

Taking it in stride, Tucker laughed, “We have a very excitable young man behind us. Not a Bill Clinton fan! He’s a little bit upset: But, that’s okay. Everything is fine on Fox & Friends because we are surrounded by dogs. And, if there is anything that calms the human heart, it’s a canine.

Well played, Tucker! Another F&F moment that viewers will likely not forget!

Clayton’s Back! Why?

September 20, 2016

Heather Childress: “Something a little bit different this morning.”* Fox & Friends First, generally, has been–and should be–a boy-free anchor zone. Unfortunately, the FNC brass seems to be inanely tinkering with the concept of feminine pulchritude arousing F&FF fans aptly in the morn. To wit, true to his word, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris was back again as an F&FF co-host this early morn: He looked like the sad sack who wanted to be a Hooter’s waiter: It just does not work.

Clayton, you are fine on the curvy couch as a bookend to the “fox” du jour on Fox & Friends Weekend: But, sorry, you are an amusing annoyance as a F&FF co-host trying to supplant such beauties as Abby Huntsman or Heather Nauert.

F&FF co-hosts: Only lovelies need apply!

*F&FF – 09/19/16 (@ 5:30 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: As a kind, savvy source apprised me, Clayton’s FNC bio now includes him as an F&FF co-host: Hopefully, it was in error.]

 

F&FF: Fox & Friends First First?

September 19, 2016

Ladies? Fox & Friends First viewers were given a jarring jolt this morning–and it was not the coffee. Rather, it was F&F Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris seizing the seat that Abby Huntsman or Heather Nauert normally possess next to Heather Childers. Needless to say, it was not a pretty sight.

But, brace yourselves, F&FF fans, Clayton said that he will be back tomorrow. Where is Roger Ailes when FNC needs him? And, Clayton go back to the weekend–and, give the ladies back their seat!

[Author’s aside: Re Carpe Diem article title, supra, this is the first time in the author’s recollection that a male has co-hosted F&FF.]

Correction (re author’s aside): Apparently, I expunged the F&FF male invasion from my memory. :-) Fox & Friends First throwback: debut announcement elucidation (Ainsley Earhardt & Anna Kooiman).

Post Anna: Heather Nauert?

September 10, 2016

On the Fox & Friends Weekend curvy couch. As the lovely Anna Kooiman gambols about on her cross-country trek showing hubby Tim Stuckey the sights (before going Down Under to live with him), frequent fill-in F&F First co-host Heather Nauert auditions for Anna’s erstwhile job. And, Heather is not too bad: She is smart, sexy, and no nonsense–after all, she is from the Chicago area.

The delightful thing about Heather is that she is sexy fun and unashamed while she is not afraid to take her male co-hosts to task. Captivatingly, she is happy to disclose her first kiss and with whom; to reveal skipping school to get a fake I.D.; and to confess her nude frolic in a VW bug. In fact, she reminds the author of a certain gal who helped set the precedent for what it means to be queen of the F&F weekday curvy couch, E. D. Hill–the gal who could be more than a match for her bookend guys and who put the “Fox” in “Fox & Friends.”

Good job, Heather!

 

Anna, Maria, & Greta Gone

September 7, 2016

Wow! Two days, three Foxes out! Monday, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman had her final sendoff (vid) as she departed the F&F curvy couch on her cross-country trek before going Down Under to be with her Aussie hubby Tim Stuckey (pic). Tuesday, FNC meteorologist Maria Molina said goodbye to her F&F fans (vid) as she returns to Central Michigan University to continue to pursue her PhD in “Earth Science.” Yesterday, Greta van Susteren left her On the Record fans without so much as an adieu, leaving temporary fill-in host Brit Hume to remark at the end of the show, “Finally, a word about Greta van Susteren….She has left Fox News, saying, ‘Today, the place just didn’t feel like home anymore.’ I count Greta a friend, and I’m sorry to see her go. All of us here certainly wish her well: She made a big contribution, and we will miss her!”

Maria Molina: FNC Loses Another Fox? [Updated]

August 24, 2016

Seriously?! According to FTVLive, FNC meteorologist Maria Molina is leaving Fox News and she will be announcing her exit early tomorrow morning. Reportedly, she is going to Central Michigan University to get her PHD, and she will be working at WJBK part-time in Detroit.

Maria’s departure falls on the heels of the vamooses of hottie Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros, leggy lovely frequent Outnumbered co-anchor Jedidiah Bila, 2013 Miss USA Red Eye co-host Joanne Nosuchinsky, and Fox & Friends Weekend  co-anchor Anna Kooiman. Not to mention Gretchen Carlson: And, who knows about her purported supporter Kelly File anchor Megyn Kelly. At least, former Victoria’s Secret model The Five‘s comely Kimberly Guilfoyle, Fox & Friends First co-hosts lovely Heather Childers and beauty Abby Huntsman; and Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhart are still at Fox News–at least, for now.

Bill Shine, if you keep losing the “Foxes” post Roger, you will be left with only “Friends.” And, for FNC fans, this is not a good thing. Get it together!

H/t J$, for your “heads up”!

Update: Maria announced her exit indeed on Fox & Friends this morning at 6:32 a.m. ET. (08/25/16).  Fox & Friends Tweet (including vid): https://twitter.com/foxandfriends/status/768761326210473985.
