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
Remember that time Kate Winslet stooped down to do a non-period piece and starred in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, that movie about how you could erase all memories of a pain-in-the-ass ex? After Matt Lauer’s dick threatened to ruin the reputation of the house that Katie Couric and J. Fred Muggs built, the team at Today appears ready to erase any and all memories of him and his henchmen (and women). Continue reading
Ann Curry hasn’t said much about how Today dropped her ass in the dumpster after being a co-anchor for about three seconds (if you want to get technical, she was co-anchor for a year) and how she feels about the career of Matt Lauer (aka the smug dildo who may have played a big part in her firing) also ending up in the dumpster. But Ann is finally (just pretend this text is blinking for dramatic purposes) BREAKING HER SILENCE!!!
Ann is on the cover of this week’s People giving us an “Oh honey, sit down and put on a plastic poncho because I’m about to spill the tea all over the place” pose. But you don’t need to keep the burn cream handy because Ann’s tea ain’t boiling hot.
In my experience, when one is shitcanned from their job, they get shut the fuck down immediately. They take over your email account and change all the passwords, they make you turn in your keys, you clean out your desk, get escorted out of the building, nobody makes eye contact with you when you “pop in” to say hi and then you get served a restraining order while you’re in your jammies. Not so for Matt Lauer!
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.
