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.”
A little over three months ago, rose bouquets were thrown at Jane Fonda’s feets when she threw a, “You’re really going to do this now, trick?” face at Megyn Kelly after being asked about plastic surgery during an interview about her new movie. I wasn’t even expecting a round two, but we all got one this morning. Jane was on the second hour of Today with Lily Tomlin when she clocked Megyn, and Megyn wasn’t even in the ring!
Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie (who were dressed like the rich lady version of the Crips) interviewed Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (who were dressed like the rich lady version of the Bloods) about the third season of Grace and Frankie. Hoda brought up their friendship and wondered how far they go back. Lily made a joke about how they knew each other BJFF (before Jane’s first facelift), and Jane took that joke and used it to slap at Megyn Kelly. And Jane did it in Megyn Kelly’s own house!
Hoda: How long have you two known each other?
Lily: Oh my God… Before your first facelift.
Jane: Who are you, Megyn Kelly?
Lily: Oh, that’s right, I forgot she was the one!
And as Hoda and Savannah tried to keep from laughing by looking nervous, Megyn was in her dressing room, either farting up a ray of happiness over Jane Fonda remembering her name, or was screaming at her makeup person to put some Alocane on that burn Jane gave her. (Side note: Jane Fonda just had a cancerous growth removed from her mouth area.)

Today will cover the Winter Olympics next month, and when they do, I hope they bring Jane Fonda on again, because her dragging Megyn Kelly has become my new favorite sport.
If you didn’t look at the little words on that cover, you might think that Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb found mid-life lesbian love with each other, left their men and announced their gayelle union with a head-to-head pose on the cover of People! But Savannah and Hoda are now a different kind of partners. Hoda announced on Today and People this morning that she will permanently co-anchor the show with Savannah. Hoda is now the unofficial Queen of Today, because she’ll also keep continuing to host the “Happy Hour” of Today (aka the fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford). So the final hour of Today won’t be KLG singing show tunes and Jesus songs with a half-empty bottle of Pinot in the stool next to her.
Where in the world is Matt Lauer? Nobody gives a fuck! NBC is riding a ratings wave since the smug anchor had to forcibly exit stage right in the wake of his pervy behavior.
Variety reports Ann Curry was spotted doing the nae nae as she bought herself something nice at Bloomingdale’s. No, Variety is actually reporting that Today is outperforming Good Morning America for the second week in a row. NBC is usually boasts about how they win in the 25 to 54 demographic (aka the one advertisers care about), but they can now brag about winning overall ratings.
When the Fall of Pervs 2017 started to hit the world of TV news and Ryan Seacrest was accused (sort of) and Charlie Rose went down, I waited and waited for the creepy perv curtain to be lifted off of bald pillar of potent smug Matt Lauer. Well, that day has come… and you probably didn’t read anything beyond “was accused” because your vision was blurred by the tears you let out while laugh crying over me saying that sneaky garden gnome Ryan Seacrest is in the world of TV news.
But anyway, NBC News announced today that after getting a detailed sexual harassment complaint from an employee on Monday night, they have fired the seemingly untouchable don of morning TV. Meanwhile, employees at Good Morning America are making a mental note to keep the receipt for the holiday gifts they bought for George Stephanopoulos and Michael Strahan.
