Gretchen, Snooki, & the Senator

August 12, 2010

Carlson: “Man, I Got to Get You Some Glasses, Senator!” Less than two months ago, Fox & Friends co-anchor Gretchen Carlson respectfully interviewed Jersey Shore‘s Snooki, a/k/a Nicole Polizzi, on the curvy couch: specifically, she asked her about Senator John McCain’s unsolicited supportive Tweet against the tanning bed tax. Today, however, the former Miss America had a snarkier take on Snooki as to the 2008 GOP Presidential candidate’s latest flirtation with the pop culture queen.

During a first-hour headline news segment, Gretchen reported that Senator McCain had offered his opinion on Snooki’s recent (July 30) disorderly arrest.* Subsequently, F&F producers aired an audio clip from the Tim and Willy Show KLME in which McCain said, “Is Snooki too good looking to go to jail?…I’m kind of leaning towards Snooki being too good looking.” Immediately thereafter, Gretchen snarked, “Man, I got to get you some glasses, Senator!” When she did, her co-host Steve Doocy smiled and arched his eyes brows in surprise while her off-camera co-anchor Brian Kilmeade exclaimed, “Wow! Ow!” In response, she simply snorted in amusement and finished reading the Snooki story.

After that gratuitous slight, will Snooki return to Fox & Fiends’ curvy couch any time soon? On the weekday with Gretchen, probably not. However, on the weekend with Alisyn Camerota, another proud Jersey Shore Girl, it may well be a different matter altogether. N.B. Less than a month ago, Aly dubbed herself, “Snooki Camerota.”

“Snooki” Camerota: Fab Abs

July 17, 2010

Fox & Friends guest host Alisyn Camerota was “rocking the poof” Friday asĀ  she buffed her abs with the “Jersey Core” workout. The self-proclaimed “Jersey Shore Girl” and “Snooki Camerota for that moment”* playfully touched the taut chest muscles of her New York Sports Club trainer hunk before fist-pumping her way through a heated workout. Not particularly fond of exercise in general, Aly willing went the distance for the “cause,” that sexy six pack. And that sexy six pack is something that she has long held in high esteem, whether through an appreciation of the well-honed abs of others (e.g., those of Terrell Owens in his F&F fitness segment) or a rightful pride in her own (e.g., the ones in her 80’s bikini pic).

Looking good, Aly: Tanned, toned, and tempting!
