Former FOX-y lady Megyn Kelly is finding out that launching a career as a solo artist isn’t that easy. She probably thought that all of the goodwill she engendered from being Twitter-abused by POTUS during the election would propel her to Barbara Walters-heights of newswoman fame. Turns out that Megyn’s really not that popular. Plus, critics say her show sucks. This is why celebrity publicists are letting calls from the Megyn Kelly TODAY show booker go straight to voicemail. None of them want their clients on that shit show, according to Variety. Continue reading
The transition of Megyn Kelly from the fräulein of Fox News to the tart of the Today has been more of a car crash than a walk in the park – and now the ratings reportedly show she’s sinking the whole ship! Continue reading
Debra Messing may have had to report to the principal’s office over at NBC for a slap on the wrist for dissing network cohort Megyn Kelly on Instagram after appearing on her show. According to Page Six, Messing was told to “cut it out” which is something your kid sister says to you when you keep making her slap herself in the face. But it’s also apparently something that NBC bosses say to their talent if they step out of line. Page Six reports:
While NBC insiders defended Kelly’s comments as “tongue-in-cheek,” Messing got a stern warning.
One exec told us, “Debra was told to cut it out by someone high up in the NBC Entertainment division run by Bob Greenblatt, via her agent or publicist.”
Debra’s rep was asked about the incident but declined to comment. A source close to the actress however denies that Debra got detention and claims that NBC fully supports Debra and is totally going to vote for her for Homecoming Queen. I bet another source for the actress is the one who wrote “MK Sucks” in the girl’s bathroom on the third floor of the science building and started the rumor that Megyn let Susan Sarandon finger her at Becky Adams’ kegger last weekend. Meanwhile, a source for Megyn is probably plotting an elaborate prank which involves bleach, a bottle of Clairol #8 and a cucumber. If these two don’t hurry up and bury the hatchet, NBC Prom is going to end up being a total blood bath!
Jane Fonda’s press tour for her new movie co-starring Robert Redford didn’t end when Jane gave us the Crinkled Brow That Launched a Thousand Ships on Megyn Kelly Today. Jane and Bob kept it moving and a few hours later they appeared on Entertainment Tonight Canada where Jane explained what was going through her mind when Megyn asked about her mug.
Well, at least when NBC finally gets their biggest tax write-off of the year (aka when they finally dump Megyn Kelly Today), we’ll have a glorious supercut of all of her guests making the face they made when they realized that they need to fire their publicist immediately for putting them on that awkward dumpster puddle of a show.
Susan Sarandon’s arch liberal rival Debra Messing says she regrets appearing on Megyn Kelly‘s premiere performance on Today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Debra made the bold political statement in the most direct and unequivocally bravest way possible, by burying it in a comments thread on a picture she posted on Instagram of a bowl of cucumber slices captioned “Snack time! #presstour”.
