Fans of the fourth hour of the Today show might no longer have to until 10:00am to get secondhand blitzed on morning wine. According to Page Six, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb might move up an hour to the 9:00 time slot. But wait, isn’t that Megyn Kelly’s spot? Yeah, possibly not any more.
Sadly, Charlize Theron won’t be playing Megyn Kelly in a drama about her getting roasted to dust by Jane Fonda. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Charlize Theron and director Jay Roach are getting together to work on a biopic about the sexual assault allegations against the late Roger Ailes.
Charlize will play Megyn in the currently-untitled Roger Ailes film, and will also serve as one of the film’s producer (Annapurna will be financing and producing). It will reportedly center around the multiple sexual assault allegations made against Roger Ailes back in 2016, beginning with the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Gretchen Carlson. It’s rumored that Gretchen will likely be a character in this film. Also possible characters to be included are Greta Van Susteren, Rupert Murdoch, and Bill O’Reilly.
Megyn’s role in the film will most likely echo what was happening in real life at the time of the accusations. Megyn was at Fox News for over a decade when she was given her own show, The Kelly File. Megyn never came out and said it, but sources claimed she told investigators that Roger had allegedly sexually harassed her when she first started at Fox News a decade earlier. Her story was rumored to be the final nail in Roger’s coffin at Fox. Fox News allegedly tried to pressure Megyn into defending Roger when the allegations first came out, but Megyn refused.
I can totally see Charlize as Megyn Kelly, because Charlize fully commits to a role transformation. I just hope she prepares her gag reflex as much as she prepares squinting her eyes and working a smug smile. All that inevitable vomit-triggering talk about raw hamburger crotch meat is bound to do a number on her stomach.
The 2018 TIME 100 Gala was held last night in New York City to celebrate Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people. And whether the people were influential or not, the red carpet fashion pulled from a variety of sources. Like Leslie Jones in Christian Siriano, who is giving you Grace Jones after stopping at Studio 54 while thinking,”I wonder what the rent is on this place? Do they pay monthly or yearly? You know what, hand me my coke spoon and purse, I’m leaving to pursue a career in commercial real estate.”
When Megyn Kelly’s prime-time NBC News program Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly premiered last June, one of her hopes should have been that NBC won’t drag it to the curb on trash day. Because according to Page Six, it sounds like that’s what’s happening.
Megyn Kelly Is Supposedly Pissed That Katie Couric Is Hosting The Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies
Even though they’ve fumigated the halls of Studio 1B to rid the place of predatory anchors, all is not happy in the land of Today. While several of the anchors and reporters for the NBC morning show are packing up their luggage to head to South Korea for the Winter Olympics, Megyn Kelly is staying behind to make sure Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell don’t try to sneak over and throw toilet paper into the trees in the front yard while everyone is away. And Megyn is apparently peeved that NBC execs hired a Ghost of Morning Shows Past to do the duty…duh duh duh enter Katie Couric! Continue reading
On Monday, Megyn Kelly used her time on Megyn Kelly TODAY to slap back at Jane Fonda. Jane has been scratching at Megyn ever since Megyn asked her about her plastic surgeries during an interview in September. Megyn probably high-fived herself in the mirror after her Jane takedown, but not everyone thinks what Megyn did was totally badass. Specifically, former TODAY co-anchor Ann Curry.
