Domenica: “Spanked” & Spurned?

July 11, 2010

Davis leaves FNC home: Appears back on NBC’s stoop.* Meteorologist Domenica Davis has left Fox News and was seen this Friday on NBC’s Early Today according to TVNewser. The Mediabistro.com blog further reported Domenica was “filling in” but not a NBC News or MSNBC staffer. (N.B. As of today, Domenica’s bio remains on FNC’s website.) Citing TVEyes, it added that Domenica was last spotted on Fox News on May 17.

Readers of Carpe Diem should not have been overly surprised by the news of Domenica’s departure. Merely a month before she disappeared from Fox News’ airways, Domenica appeared to have been disciplined by FNC Senior VP of Programming Bill Shine for a sexually suggestive Sapphic “spanking” jest that she made on Fox & Friends Weekend. In that instance, on April 17 (Saturday), while substituting for Rick Reichmuth, Domenica made the salacious joke about herself and co-anchor Alisyn Camerota and later laughed about fearing getting in trouble for further bawdy banter. However, the very next day (Sunday), her fears seemed to have been realized forthwith: she did not return to F&FW to temp for Rick and her absence was not even acknowledged by F&FW’s co-hosts. (In fact, her apparent punishment appeared all the more patent when F&FW had no meteorologist in for Rick and simply had no regular weather segments that day.)

Hopefully, Domenica’s departure is not a portent of things to come. Fox News’ dynamic, colorful, and sexy personalities need not be muzzled. Rather, they can be trusted with a freer rein to relate to their colleagues, Bill. And, to their audience.

Good luck, Domenica. You’ll be missed!

*Before being hired by FNC, Domenica worked at NBC affiliates in Baltimore (WBAL-TV) and in Louisville, KY (WAVE-TV).

Update: As of July 14, Domenica Davis was hired as a meteorologist by NBC to work at its affiliate WNBC, “4 New York,” according to TVNewser. If the reader would like to see Domenica in action at her new home, s/he may link here.

Domenica: Mind That Bird

May 23, 2009

Our boys were back in town, and Domenica Davis had their rapt attention! As the Marines (fresh in for Fleet Week) showcased their fighting skills and big guns for the public in Times Square outside the F&F studio this morning, they exhibited an extra dollop of testosterone as the Fox & Friends guest meteorologist put them through their paces. F&FW’s winsome weatherfilly, like Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra, had her leatherneck studs heatedly following in her tracks.

In fact, the long-tressed Italian treat, clad in her royal blue, plunging-neckline dress and shod in white foot-flattering thongs, had the eager eye and obedient ear of every red-blooded male Marine there. After our boys had proudly displayed their physical prowess for her in their defensive fighting exhibition, she interviewed them. Not surprisingly, none, apparently, had a wife (or girlfriend) as co-anchor Dave Briggs astutely noted: One gave a shout-out to his mom, another to his aunt, and the last one to his sister. Hmm!

Our fighting boys did not seem to mind that regular meteorologist Rick Reichmuth was vacationing in Hawaii. (For that matter, neither did Domenica.) When it came to Domenica today, the Marines held true to their motto Semper Fi!
