Kilmeade: “You’re the Anti-Clayton”

April 14, 2010

Was Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade so accusing Carpe Diem yesterday? (The author was cited by Mediaite Monday for the “backstory” on its apparent scoop of F&F Weekend co-host Clayton Morris’ love life? No, actually, F&F’s double entendre don was directing that declaration toward his co-anchor Gretchen Carlson after she facetiously claimed to “know so much about technology.”* When to Brian’s jest, the conservative former Miss America responded, “No, I would love to be Clayton,” this viewer did wonder if, perhaps, a little subtle F&F damage control had already begun.

As cable news junkies doubtlessly know by now, Monday Mediaite disclosed, “Here’s the tip, and here’s the info we have: Clayton Morris, co-host of Fox & Friends, has an extramarital affair with CNET host, Natali del Conte…rumors circulating that he is the father of pregnant Del Conte. Wife of Clatyon [Sara Batterson Morris] has filed for divorce.” Mediate further reported that sources had indicated that Del Conte was gravid and that her pregnancy had been a matter of discussion at Fox News. The media news blog added that it had “reached out to Del Conte” and Fox News: even though a statement from Del Conte apparently was not forthcoming, a Fox News spokesperson tersely stated, “We don’t comment on the personal lives of talent.”

Carpe Diem has contacted Clayton but he has not made a reply for the record yet. When/if the popular Fox & Friends responds with a statement for his F&F fans and his Twitter followers, the author will fully and fairly report it. Hopefully, he will soon.

[Clayton Morris is also the co-feature of the Grizzly Bear Egg Cafe podcasts.]
