Kelly “Confesses”: I Cohabitated, Lived in Sin

April 6, 2013

“Before my first marriage and it ended in divorce.” America Live anchor Megyn Kelly revealed to her fans Thursday that she lived with her first hubby Dr. Dan Kendall before they tied the knot but she stressed that she had changed her ways when she later met her second and current husband Doug Brunt.

In a segment subtitled “The New Normal: Study Finds Cohabitation Is on the Rise,” Megyn introduced the story, disclosing, “I cast no judgment by calling it ‘living in sin’ because I have done it.”* After an entertaining discussion with her panel (Kirsten Powers and Monica Crowley) about the merits of not “giving the milk away for free,” Megyn further revealed, “I will say this for the record: I, I cohabitated, lived in sin, before my first marriage and it ended in divorce.”

Summing up her own life’s lesson for the AL audience, Megyn continued, “And, then I married Doug, and we did not live together at, at all until we got married. And, we’re very happily married with two kids and one more on the way.” For any who might be offended with her conclusion, she laughed, “So, you know, for what it’s worth!”

FNC’s “Mean Girl”: Kirsten Goes Loco on Lolo

August 10, 2012

Today’s “Beast”? Anthony Weiner’s former girlfriend and erstwhile defender Kirsten PowersFox News’ self-professed Christian progressive must have forgotten all about I Corinthians 13 (“The Love Chapter”) today. In her Happening Now appearance this afternoon, the usually compassionate Daily Beast columnist defended New York Times sports columnist Jere Longman’s misogynistic attack against Olympian Lolo Jones, a born-again Christian who posed a la a shy pre-Fall Eve in ESPN Body Issue 2009, for her sensual allure to an appreciative media at the perceived slight to her competitors. [N.B. No mention from Longman that Lolo is the first woman who has won back-to-back World Indoor titles in the 60-meter hurdles and that she was a three-time national champion hurdler and an eleven-time All-American at LSU.]

In Kirsten’s HN segment, her fellow Fox News colleague, former NYT investigative reporter Judith Miller opined, “I think it was very unfair….It was so harsh on her. It was so unforgiving.”* Substantiating her point, Miller cited the criticism of the NYT‘s very own ombudsman Arthur S. Brisbane, who said, “I think the writer [Jere Longman] was particularly harsh, even unnecessarily so….[T]his piece struck me as quite harsh and left me, along with others, wondering why the tone was so strong.”

Shaking her head, Kirsten emphatically countered, “I don’t agree! I do not agree.” Clad in her low-cut, sleeveless, short black dress, FNC’s blond beauty, perhaps, ironically groused, “He [Longman] never called her the Anna Kornikova: he interviewed somebody who said that….The point that he was actually trying to make is that here are actually two other American athletes whose names we don’t even know really…[who] have gotten no endorsement deals, have gotten no media coverage even though they have medals when this person who didn’t even get a medal is getting all of this media attention….How did she become the victim?”

Then, Kirsten added, “In terms of him talking the stuff about her, she’s the one who put it out there….She’s a woman. She’s, at least thirty….She cannot complain about media coverage that’s critical of her.” Coming to Lolo’s defense, Miller exclaimed, “Oh, yes, she can. Yes, she can when she’s really being attacked.” Shrugging her shoulders, Kirsten replied, “I don’t think it was an attack.”

Miller answered, “It was an attack! The only two people quoted in the entire piece are negative quotes.” Smirking, Kirsten caustically queried, “You’re not allowed to write a negative article about an athlete?” Miller riposted, “Wait a minute! He left out the fact that she had spinal surgery the year before. Her own extremely back story left out.” After clenching her teeth as Judith spoke, an irate Kirsten argued, “But, hasn’t that been covered extensively.”

Miller responded, “But, not in his column! If somebody’s reading that column, you have no idea where [she’s coming from]…Why beat up on this woman?” Unconvincingly, Kirsten replied, “He’s not beating up on her!” Immediately, Miler countered, “He was!” Appearing to contradict herself, Kirsten answered, “And, why he is not allowed to do that? I don’t understand.”

Interjecting, HN co-host Jon Scott remarked that while Lolo’s competitors may have won medals she was apparently the only woman to have won the national indoors hurdling championship twice. Cutting to the quick, he said, “Let’s show the photo that…aroused so much, I guess, ire, so much negative attention to her.” As the photo of a seated nude Lolo looked backed at the camera with all of her “lady bits” discreetly covered, Jon continued, “What doesn’t get noted is the small type there…a quote from her coach at LSU Dennis Shaver who writes, “She has the perfect core, which is where her horsepower comes from. Her abs are like a washboard, all muscle fiber and no fat. You don’t get like without proper diet and training: And, even then, you’d need Lolo’s determination.’ That gets lost in the coverage of that photo.”

“Exactly: it certainly did,” concurred Miller. As Kirsten laughed in derision, Miller chastened, “And, the back story gets lost. And, Kirsten, I’m really surprised.” Interposing, a bemused Kirsten queried, “What back story? I don’t even understand.”

Miller explained, “Wait a minute! You can make the point that the media likes some people and the companies choose to use some people without beating up on her, without demeaning her or her achievement. And, the fact that she’s a self-proclaimed Christian virgin and comes from this poor family. I think it’s an amazing story.”

Gesticulating animatedly, Kirsten interrupted, “As one of the other girls comes from a very poor story [sic]. And, it’s an amazing story that been covered ad nauseum.

As Kirsten ranted, a smiling Miller interposed, “She’s beautiful. Why should we hold that against her?”

In a seemingly disingenuous response, Kirsten said that “we shouldn’t” but then echoed Longman’s plaint that Lolo was getting a disproportionate amount of attention. Then, baring her claws, Kirsten caustically exclaimed, “And, I’m sorry, but, you know, the whole born-again Christian thing and posing naked, I don’t think they really go together. Call me crazy!…I talk about my faith all the time, and if I posed like that I would expect to hear about it!”

Conversely, if Kirsten posits like that, she should certainly expect to hear about it.

Megyn & Kirsten Make Up

November 3, 2010

Catfights to pillow fights? Perhaps, heeding that seductive slogan of peace, “Make love not war,” America’s Newsroom Megyn Kelly and Kirsten Powers appeared ready to sheath their claws and to mew together anew last night on FNC’s American Election HQ. Over three months ago,  the FNC blond beauties had a vicious scratching session during an alleged Black Panther voter intimidation segment. However, last night, the feisty felines appeared on the same set and seemed rather ready to let bygones be bygones.

When Kirsten concluded her AEHQ segment with fellow guests On the Record anchor Greta van Susteren and former Senator Rick Santorum, she segued backed to co-anchors Megyn and Bret Baier at another table.* (Perhaps, not inadvertently, Kirsten and Megyn sat at opposite ends of the two tables.) After Kirsten’s toss, Megyn playfully demanded an answer about the purported Black Panther voter intimidation.* Initially, Kirsten looked surprised but then laughed heartily in reply. Chuckling, Megyn smiled warmly back at her. Joining in the fun, Brett jested that the two gals should be kept apart, and Santorum sportingly stretched out his arms between them as if to do so.

All is well again at their FNC home, apparently. No more catfights! But, pillow fights are another matter altogether.

America Live CatFIGHT: Megyn vs. Kirsten

July 13, 2010

FNC’s feral felines: The seven best minutes on cable news in recent memory!* Both America Live host Megyn Kelly and guest New York Post columnist Kirsten Powers had their nostrils flared and their teeth bared as they slashed each other mercilessly with their sharp claws. The a propos topic: New Black Panther Party voter intimidation.

If the reader did not have the pleasure or pain of seeing the polemic blood flowing with abandon today, J$P provides a video here. From one corner, Megyn ferociously cut Kirsten for not knowing what she was talking about, threatened to mute Kirsten’s mike for talking over her, accused her of lying (re watching whistle blower interview), and slapped her with a final suggestion that “it’s going to be more helpful to the viewers if the next time you come back on you have your facts.” From the other corner, a slightly more docile Kirsten responded that she did indeed know what she talking about, challenged Megyn to cut her mike, charged her with hysteria, and accused her of playing the race card (“the scary black man thing”).

Rowrrr! America Live became America Alive today.

Kirsten Chides Kilmeade 4 Off-Air Ridicule

December 1, 2008

Fox News analyst Kirsten Powers chastened co-host Brian Kilmeade for his off-camera ridicule. During a commercial break after a tease about a couple who waited until they were wed before kissing, the co-hosts bandied the story about. In the next block as Kirsten’s segment closed, she scolded, “Brian, Brian, I want to say I think you need to stop making fun of that couple that didn’t kiss ’til they got married: I think it’s sweet.”

Kilmeade sheepishly responded, “Were you listening in the breaks? I didn’t say anything on camera. How dare you!” He defensively added, “I would say I found it surprising: That’s all I will say.” Turning to co-hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson, he asked, “Did I say that on camera?” Gretchen replied, “No, you and I were discussing it in the commercial break: uh oh!” Still abashed, Kilmeade again exclaimed, “How dare she!”

Kirsten keeping it real!

Kirsten’s Acne Angst?

August 31, 2008

FNC’s happy progressive warrior analyst Kirsten Powers got a bit surly today in her second Fox & Friends Weekend debate segment (on the presidential race) with conservative radio personality Mike Gallagher. In the first one, Kristen seemed to be her usual combative, cheerful self: However, in the second part, she got a bit testy with Gallagher as to who deserved the blame as to the Katrina disaster.

When Gallagher indicted the Dem mayor of New Orleans and the Dem governor of Louisiana for the emergency response, Kirsten acerbically responded, “You know, I don’t want to re-litigate Hurricane Katrina with you.” Seeking to quiet any animus, Alisyn Camerota intervened and said, “You guys are right and none of us do. Then she added, “Let’s just hope that three years later that all of those lessons on both sides have been learned and that Gustav will be handled much better.”

What might explain Kirsten’s anomalous departure from her generally amiable demeanor? One possible reason is that her cosmetic artist’s goof was on prominent display. Instead of hiding an apparent zit below her lower lip, the makeup made it sparkle in the camera’s gaze. Apparently, the makeup artist had used the wrong makeup, i.e., one that appears to hide an imperfection to the naked eye but amplifies it to the television camera with a shiny or glittering display.

Any teenage acne sufferer can commiserate with the attractive blonde pundit. A zit that shouts out its existence to the public is no laughing matter, especially one on the boob tube. Kirsten, it’ll go away soon or you’ll get a more knowledgeable cosmetic expert and all will be well again in the aesthetic world.
