If You Seek A Megyn

April 22, 2009

In response to Internet gainsayers, America’s Newsroom Megyn Kelly proved today beyond a reasonable doubt that the moralizing anchor in Britney Spear’s video, “If You Seek Amy,” was indeed lampooning her. In an interview with the actress herself, Kristina Mitchell, Megyn queried, “Let’s put this to rest once and for all: Were you or were you not trying to imitate me in that video clip?”

Less than coyly, Kristina answered, “I was.” As if on cross, again Megyn asked, “You were?”  Tilting her head, crinkling her nose, and smiling saucily, she answered, “Guilty as charged!” “I knew it!” exclaimed Megyn.

When Megyn asked for details, Kristina replied that Britney’s people at the music video audition instructed, “Kinda Megyn Kellyesque.” She elaborated, “I Googled and YouTubed you and tried to blow dry my hair perfectly–which took hours. Elucidating further, Kristina commented, “I tried to think American, and I thought Bree Van De Camp [Desperate Housewife played by Marcia Cross]…very sweet with a little bit of apple pie and a little bit of sass.”

Blandishingly, Kristina japed, “Once you get Megyn Kelly, there’s no going back!” Megyn rejoined, “Amen to that, sister!” Somehow, I think Doug might agree.

Steve said, “Hey, honey!…I’m talking to Marcia Cross from Desperate Housewives…Can I call you back?” Gretch interjected, “She’s going to be jealous.” When the segment ended, Doocy thanked Marcia for not being “cross” when his spouse call. Marcia replied, “Was that really your wife?” Steve answered, “Yes!”
