I knew there were secrets galore in hallways of the Today show, but apparently the best-kept secret of all is that Tamron Hall is 48. Alas, that isn’t the news here. In a move that probably has Megyn Kelly wondering why she didn’t go that route instead of, uh, what she did for attention, Tamron let us know that she has a talk show and a new baby coming out soon.
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
Well, at least we’ll always have Tamron Hall’s riveting performance as Vivian Ward in Today’s revival of the “It’s Veeeery Expensive” scene from Pretty Woman.
Tamron Hall no longer has to worry about breathing through her mouth so she doesn’t inhale Matt Lauer’s smug douche fumes while hosting next to him on Today. Because she has decided not to renew her contract with NBC News and MSNBC.
Earlier today, Page Six said that the former sweetheart of Fox News, Megyn Kelly, is crashing into Today, and either the show’s third or fourth hour will be canceled to make room for her. The third hour is hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker, and the fourth hour is hosted by America’s morning-drinking aunties Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. That rumor was just another turd on the pile of shit news that hit me today.
First, I learned that the emporium of stunning teen fashions Wet Seal has been put down and has closed all of its stores. Second, I learned that The CW has ordered a pilot of the shit reboot of Dynasty. And then I learned that my daily dose of vitamin M (for MESS) may be taken away from me. WHYYYYY!!??!
Every year, the wrecks of Today do one big group costume and they usually go all out. Last year, they brought the night terrors by dressing up as The Peanuts and the scars I got on my brain from being exposed to that terrifying shit still haven’t healed. Well, the producers must have used most of the show’s budget to pay preppy butt plug Billy Bush to go away, because this year’s costumes looked like they came from a community theater costume shop sale and a Salvation Army donation bin. You know they told Kathie Lee Gifford that a bottle of chardonnay was hiding at the bottom of that bin and she hopped in to get it.
The 90s have been barfing all over 2016 for a while now (see: every trick wearing a choker, Vanilla Ice being somewhat relevant again, the return of Kimmy Gibbler, etc…), but on Today this morning, the 90s came back in a messy way.
The Today show is a little less smug this morning, because annoying ventriloquist’s dummy Billy Bush isn’t on and won’t be on indefinitely. Because of that recording from 2005 of Billy Bush laughing as Donald Trump bragged about grabbing pussy without permission, NBC announced yesterday that they have suspended him from Today as they investigate. Please, that’s just PR talk for: “We’ve sent Billy Bush on a paid vacation until that tape of Trump saying the N-word comes out and that pussy grabbing disaster is nothing but a distant memory.”
