To prove his point about the pretty pol mom of three kids, Dave included a pic of himself with his blond bronzed beauty, Brandi, proudly displaying her tanned, toned gorgeous gams.

Happy Birthday, Brandi! Hope you have fun with your lucky guy in Vegas.

Oops! F&F’s All-American Summer “Scat” Series?

August 19, 2013

Unedited “Rough and Ready” (“a**hole”): Bob Beckel bumper music? Today, Fox & Friends seemingly turned their song selection over again to The Five‘s filter-intolerant co-host (the big bumptious one who seems to continuously soil FNC’s afternoon airwaves with scatalogical expletives). Last month (July 10)F&F producers carelessly closed a baseball segment to the tune of “Boys Round Here” as Blake Shelton sang “Backwoods legit, don’t take no sh*t.” Today, they one upped–or one downed–themselves: They teased an upcoming “Shot of the Day” segment to “Rough and Ready” as Trace Adkins raucously belted out, “Got a what are you looking at? A**hole smirk.”*

Strangely, no apologies were offered when F&F resumed after the commercial break. Oops: Another F&F Bob-ble!

[Author’s aside: According to HuffPo, J$P caught Bob‘s third “‘s’ word in recent memory” last Wednesday: If the author heard him correctly, Bob said it for a fourth time last Friday after hurting his hand at the close of his The Five segment (08/16/13 – @ 5:52 p.m. ET).]

Dave: “We Love Molly” But Ainz “Hot Mama”

May 31, 2011

Briggs/Earhardt’s “Heat and Meat” II: a Fox & Friends [Memorial] Weekend sequel. In 2009, a frisky, ringless Ainsley Earhardt co-hosted Memorial Day with co-anchors Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris: Yes, she racily commented on Dave’s “meat” but, more infamously, she–or, more specifically, her rump (and Janice Dean’s arse) was ogled by the appreciative eye of Dave. While Carpe Diem reported the bawdy humor, Jay Leno lampooned Dave’s eyeing of the delightful derrieres of Ainsley (and Janice). Not too surprisingly, in 2010, FNC Executive VP of Programming Bill Shine put in a somewhat more boring beauty, Courtney Friel, to co-host the F&F Memorial Day edition.

However, this year, Shine gave the buxom blonde another chance as he let Ainsley once again co-host the F&F Memorial Day special (and the prior Sunday for good measure). Even though she did have to share her holiday-weekend-center-seat-curvy-couch duties with the “new girl” Molly Line (who subbed for regular co-anchor Alisyn Camerota on F&F Friday and Saturday), she did get more air time as she saucily celebrated the early beginning of the holiday weekend as F&F’s Fleet Week NYC 2011 troop correspondent aboard the U.S.S. Iwo-Jima Friday.

Before her first segment Friday, Ainsley appeared live in a preview excitedly waving to the F&F audience as she happily posed with the sailors on deck the U.S.S. Iwo-Jima.* As she did, Ainsley’s belly button was bared and producers simultaneously aired Trace Adkin’s “Hot Mama” paean. When F&F returned from break, Dave introduced Ainsley, saying, “It is Fleet Week in New York City, and our own Ainsley Earhardt on a very tough assignment today aboard the U.S.S. Iwo-Jima.”**

Flirtatiously, Dave continued, “Ainsley, I don’t know if you heard but the song introing [sic] you was “Hot Mama,” we played earlier: I’m guess the troops there share the sentiment.” As Clayton gave a thumbs up in ardent agreement and Molly chuckled, Ainsley cooed, “Awww….You are so sweet!” In response, Dave boyishly ducked his head and grinned.

A few days later, on Memorial Day, Dave, Clayton, and Ainsley reprised their ribald “meat” revelry in spite of the fact that the only cooking segment included only Dave and three other males. When the Monday program commenced, Clayton jested, “Can  you handle more meat this morning, Dave?” In answer, Dave retorted, “Clayton, no, I cannot. I am maxed out, man!”

Unfortunately or not, Dave was assuredly not completely”maxed out”: perhaps, it was the “hand holding” less than ten minutes later by Ainsley.*** After Ainsley had read the headline news stories, Dave placed his left hand on the curvy couch. Shortly, thereafter, Ainsley put hers down next to Dave’s and touched it briefly and then moved her hand forward. When she did, Dave tapped her hand thrice and she began to respond in kind. As she did, Clayton joked, “You guys holding hands over here?” Smiling sheepishly, Dave retorted, “We are holding hands.” Laughing, Ainsley, added, “Kumbayah!”

Approximately, twenty minutes later, when F&F returned after the first half hour break, Clayton comically commented, “[T]his morning, we asked you earlier in the show–Dave put out the call: Please send us photos of your meat.”**** Dave interjected, “And, no, that does not include you, New York Congressman [Anthony Weiner]. We don’t want your photos!” Shaking her head with a naughty smile, Ainsley guffawed, “You did not just say that!”

Yes, he did, Ainsley. Even if Molly turns out to be the new F&FW siren that Dave loves, he does not seem to be able to shake you, his first F&FW wife. But, who knows? Maybe, he won’t have to after all.

A.S.S.: F&F’s Cheeky Conclusion

August 20, 2010

“Whoop a Man’s Ass.” Fox & Friends guest co-anchor Alisyn Camerota confirmed today what some viewers have suspected about F&F’s “After the Show Show” for quite a while. I.e., its irregular acronym, “A.T.S.S.” is a sop to its more traditional viewers but with a worldly wink to its edgier ones. Ergo, it uses the unusual acronym (including the article “the”) “A.T.S.S.” for the tail end of its show for its family-friendly fans, knowing that its obvious meaning will not be lost on its more irreverent audience.

Before the “A.T.S.S.,” country star Trace Adkins promoted his new album Cowboy’s Back in Town in an F&F television segment with co-hosts Alisyn Camerota, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade. After “Such an Idiot” Brian reminded Adkins that he had woefully misread his earlier CD as the letter “x” vis-a-vis “ten,” Adkins pointed to his album, saying, “Hey, look, I got a song….I don’t know if you can say the name of that.”* Reading it in part, Steve said, “It’s “Whoop a Man’s.” Jesting, Aly interjected, “After the Show Show. Yeah, it means After the Show Show.” Waggish Brian deadpanned, “You can say ass!”

Later, during the “A.T.S.S,” Steve introduced Adkins to the audience, saying that he was going to perform “Whoop a Man’s Ass.” Playfully, Adkins put his hand to his mouth and pointed to Steve in mock shock. Shrugging his shoulders, Steve exclaimed, “We’re on the Internet. I can say that! We’re the “After the Show Show.” Chiming in, Aly aptly added, “We’re the “After the Show Show” which some people call the ‘A.S.S.’ So…perfect. It’s perfect!”

Nick Jonas: Brian, “Very Funny” (NOT!)

June 2, 2010

A Miley Cyrus question? Two! Fox & Fans co-anchor and former stand-up comic Brian Kilmeade did not fully amuse Nick Jonas this morning. In an interview of the Jonas Brothers (Nick, Joe, and Kevin) before their appearance at the White House tonight in a tribute to Paul McCartney, Brian served up mainly softballs to the boys. However, toward the end of the discussion, Brian got a bit personal with Nick.

After questioning all three brothers about their performance in front of the President and Sir Paul, Brian remarked, “Nick…what is your take on your ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus writing a song and using your relationship as inspiration.”* (Miley recently revealed that her new song “Full Circle” was based on her relationship with her former flame Nick.) Taking his left hand out of his pants pocket and wiping his brow, Nick coolly responded, “Miley is a good friend and has been now for a long time so I think that our relationship now is friends and that’s what’s important. And, it’s good to see that we both can express ourselves through music.”

Ever the wicked wit, Brian persisted, “Right. Do you think she should cut you in on the profits?” After a pregnant pause, Nick, with almost clenched teeth hidden in a smile, retorted, “Very funny!” With co-host Steve Doocy laughing in the background, a grinning Brian riposted, “I guess I’ll take that as a ‘no.’ So, fine.”

Nick should count himself lucky, though: he got off relatively easy. As long-time Fox & Friends fans know, Brian has a knack for getting under the skin of certain celebs. Examples include such notables as KISS’ Gene Simmons (“Make Out with Clarinet Players”), country star Trace Adkins (“Such an Idiot”), and comedienne Janeane Garofalo (“Saddam Must Love You”). Even if Brian was not “very funny” to Nick, he was rather entertaining to his audience.

Happening Tomorrow?

May 25, 2010

Happening Now: is FNC’s most boring morning show getting a much needed Jane jolt? Today, co-hosts Jane Skinner and Jon Scott haunted the news room a la Martha MacCallum and Trace Gallagher on FNC’s now defunct Live Desk, the show that formerly followed HN. Perhaps, Fox News’ Bill Shine is finally trying to get his “plain” Jane to be a little less vanilla and to spice up the show a scintilla.

Generally, both Jane and Jon stay behind their desk in a fashion akin to America’s Newsroom co-anchors Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer when one or both of them would similarly so sit in the very early days of AN. Of course, Shine changed the set somewhat when he appeared to have an epiphany that AN’s rating might be enhanced if viewers caught a glimpse of Megyn’s gorgeous gams. Whether he has the same thing in mind now for Jane, time will tell. However, Jane seemed not to be fully compliant today: she sheathed her stems in slacks to elude that errant eye.

Bravo, Bill. You surely need to do something to make Happening Now actually happen soon. Otherwise, you may as well confine HN to Sirius radio.

Perino’s Faux Pas: Brian’s Boner Recalled

March 19, 2010

Ms. Tracy Lawrence: Oops! Filling in for Fox & Friends co-anchor Gretchen Carlson today, guest co-host Dana Perino introduced herself to viewers with an embarrassing personal anecdote. The former White House Press Secretary related how she started in television journalism as a DJ at a Pueblo, Colorado, country music station. Before introducing her story, she explained that she did not know very much about country music.

Then, Dana revealed the tale of her very first day at KCCY FM 96.9. She stated that as her 2-to-6-am shift started, she was given a Tracy Lawrence tape to play. Dana said, “So, I put it in, pressed ‘play,’ and I introduced it by saying, ‘Here’s Tracy Lawrence with her new song.'” Guffawing, co-anchor Steve Doocy interjected, “What a faux pas! Tracy Lawrence is a man!” Laughing, Dana continued, “Yeah. So, like thirty seconds later, I realized how embarrassing that would be. But, I thought no one would listen at 2 a.m. They did!”

In the final hour, F&F producers “surprised” Dana with an opportunity to make amends with Tracy Lawrence. After a story about an abashed America’s Next Top Model contestant falling twice on the stage, they ran a clip of Dana’s earlier account of her own discomfiting misstep in which she had said that she hoped that Lawrence took no offense. Subsequently, Steve said, “Well, let’s actually ask him. Joining us on the phone right now is country music star, Tracy Lawrence. She joins us right now from Nashville.”

Putting her head in her hands, Dana exclaimed, “Oh! I am so embarrassed!” Good-naturedly, Lawrence said, “Well, you know, this has scarred me for a long time; I need some relief, [and] I need to let this go.” After Dana then asked him if she had been the first to have made that mistake, Lawrence replied, “No, you are not the first ever to make that mistake….But, I do actually forgive you.” Smiling, Dana responded, “Thank you so mu[ch]. You know what? That makes me feel a lot better. I can maybe let this thing go now.” Later, when concluding the call, she exclaimed, “Thank you, sir. Thank you, sir. I’ll never forget it.”

However, the fun was not quite over. As the segment concluded, Steve segued to F&F Weekend co-hosts Dave Briggs, Clayton Morris, and Alisyn Camerota. After the toss, Dave declared, “But, Brian, that country music story reminds me of you [and] Trace Atkins. You said, ‘his new album “X”‘: it was called ‘Ten.’ You’ve got your own country music story, Buddy.” Chagrined, Brian replied, “I was a little slow at the Roman numerals. Okay? I apologize, Dave. Thanks!” Chuckling, Clayton added, “Dana, don’t feel so badly now!”

[N.B. Trace Watkins was not nearly as nice to Brian for his boner. Cf. Carpe Diem’s “Trace Adkins: Brian, ‘Such an Idiot.'”]

Bocephus: Gretchen, Dave “Idiots”?

April 15, 2009

Unprepared and oblivious, Fox & Friends co-hosts Gretchen Carlson and Dave Briggs thoroughly embarrassed themselves this morning in their interview with country music superstar Hank Williams, Jr. Even worse, they did not even seem to fully realize it.

As Gretchen introduced the Hank Williams “Bocephus Bailout Package” segment, she said, “He’s calling it the Bocephus (short”o” and schwa “e”)? Is that what it is? I’m going to have to ask him? Is it Bocephus (long “o” and schwa “e”)?” Dave guffawed, “I’m not sure: I saw it on his guitar.” Incredulous and a mite miffed, Williams shook his head, smiled, crossed his arms, and literally bit his tongue.

Iterating both of Gretchen’s pronunciations to Williams, Dave asked,  “What is it? Bocephus [or] Bocephus? I know it’s your nickname.” Williams decided to be more charitable than colleague Trace Adkins who called Brian Kilmeade an “idiot” when he made a similar goofy gaffe.* Still shaking his head and crossing his arms, Williams good-naturedly scoffed, “Hey, ya’ll, my goodness! It ain’t either one! It’s Bo(long “o”)ce(long “e)phus.”

Consequently, abashed and wide-eyed, Gretchen grimaced: Then she apologetically and accurately echoed, “Bocephus.” Likewise, a sheepish Dave grinned and repeated, “Bocephus.”

Later in the program, after Williams sang “Red, White & Pink-Slip Blues,” Dave applauded, “Good stuff, Bocephus!” Gretchen chuckled, “We’re never going to forget that!” Williams riposted, “Neither am I.”

Gretchen, Dave: Idiots? Nah. But, please, a little more prep, guys!

Trace Adkins: Kilmeade, “Such an Idiot”

November 26, 2008

Introducing a Trace Adkins’ segment, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade said, “He’s capping it off [a banner year] on this just released CD ‘X.” Country music superstar and our only real friend in the industry Trace Adkins.” Adkins responded, “Kilmeade was absent when they had Roman numeral day: Such an idiot!” Abashedly laughing, Kilmeade replied, “Excuse me, Ten. Did you just call me an idiot?” Adkins just shook his head. As F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy tried to cover for Brian, a somewhat exasperated Adkins kiddingly began to get up and riposted, “To CNN.” At the end of the interview, explaining himself, Brian stated, “I just thought that it just happened to be ‘X’ as his tenth album.” Shaking his head again, Adkins answered, “Shut up, Kilmeade.”

Beauty N Boots

October 24, 2008

The wait is over: American Morning co-host Kiran Chetry’s ended her boot tease today. About one month after promising an enraptured Rob Marciano to break out her boots, the Nepalese beauty strutted her stuff in black high-heeled knee-high boots accented by her black mini. As Trace Adkins would say, she’s “one hot mama!”
