Johns: “Rob, Where’s Your Thong?”

December 14, 2010

Chetry: “We all know where your thong is.” American Morning co-hosts Joe Johns and Kiran Chetry decided to saucily jazz (or “Jautz”) things up yesterday morning with their CNN colleague Rob Marciano. And, their hunky meteorologist was more than happy to play along.

Before Rob’s weather segment, Kiran reported on the annual Toronto Santa Speedo Run. As footage ran of the girls and guys in their Santa skivvies, Joe interjected, “That’s so wrong!”* Not completely concurring, Kiran racily remarked, “Actually, everybody looks in pretty good shape, I gotta say. If you’re gonna wear a Speedo, rock on!” When Joe sarcastically answered, “Yeah, right. That’s the front of the line,” the clip showed the rear–and rears–of the final three athletic male Santas: risquely, Kiran responded, “Uh, now the back of the line doesn’t look that bad either!” As she concluded the story, Kiran laughed, “It’s all about generating body heat.” Wanting the final word, Joe commented, “Yeah, right. Just no thongs!”

Subsequently, as Joe segued to the weather forecast, he jauntily jested, “Rob Marciano in the Extreme Weather Center. Rob, where’s your thong?” Before Rob could answer, Kiran burst out in laughter, exclaiming, “That’s not what I was going to say!” Straight-faced, Rob replied, “Well, it’s, come on, Joe! It’s on, of course, silly.” Interposing racily, Kiran commented, “I was going to say, ‘Where’s your chicken costume?’ We all know where your thong is.” A salty Rob answered, “Exactly! It’s not red. Just so you know.”

Too bad, Rob: one of Kiran’s favorite colors is red. Also, she happens to know of, at least, one guy who sports a red thong–in fact, his “lucky” one.** Of course, hubby Chris may have one, too.

Alas, AM viewer, to purge your mind of such frightful sights, you may prefer to envision Kiran in her very own red Christmas thong. Happy thoughts!

Roberts: On KP Duty

March 16, 2009

After a year of being back on the single circuit, American Morning’s silver-haired alpha male John Roberts is seemingly ready to settle down again. According to TVNewser sources, AM’s “explorer” extraordinaire is now paired with, no, not his “TV wife” Kiran Chetry, but with her AM substitute Kyra Phillips based in Atlanta. Reportedly, the CNN anchors have been dating since December and have become rather close lately. According to TVNewser tipsters, Kyra met Roberts’ children in Toronto last weekend when Roberts was inducted was into the Canadian Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame and Roberts is planning to meet Kyra’s clan on a family vacation out West.

Apparently, CNN’s Roberts and Kyra are insuring that Hotlanta lives up to its name.
