It's not going to be Hoda Kotb or Meredith V or my personal choice Willard Scott. Savannah Guthrie will sit on the co-anchor chair that will have a revenge fart from Ann Curry on it. Savannah's the one all the way to the right who's giving that dried green paint some competition in the no personality contest.
TMZ says that Savannah's deal to be Today's new co-host is signed, sealed and awaiting delivery. Today isn't announcing her as the new co-host until they wrap shit up with Ann Curry. Ann has two years left on her $30 million 3-year contract and she wants the full $20 million to go away. NBC has offered her $10 million and a job as a foreign correspondent for NBC News, but Ann is shaking her head no to that shit deal. Ann is fucking done professionally with NBC and wants to leave the network for good. Ann wants her $20 million and nothing else.
Ann needs to put her hands around that NBC peacock's betraying bitch of a neck and not let go until that whore coughs up all $20 million. I had this customer service job once and one of my co-workers got fired for being a bitch to the customers. Did I mention that I loved her so? Well, when they pink-slipped her ass they told her she needed to come back the next day to sign some exit papers and pick up her last check. This bitch refused to sashay out the exit door until they put her last check in her hands. She sat on her chair, hugged her pocketbook and quietly talked shit to herself about her supervisors and the job. I played Mimi's "Hero" on a loop on my computer speakers. The bosses eventually gave in and gave her the check. That's what Ann needs to do. Sit in her chair and tell those bitches her legs aren't going to work until they drop $20 million into her checking account.
And about Savannah as the new co-host.... I was hoping if it wasn't going to be Hoda or Tamron Hall, it would be Natalie Morales. But I guess that would be awkward, because when I Googled "Natalie Morales Matt Lauer" this came up:
But then again, when I Googled "Savannah Guthrie Matt Lauer" this came up:
And "Ann Curry Matt Lauer":
And this (no, that is definitely not sloppily 'Shopped to shit, shut up):
So I guess if NBC wanted a co-host who hasn't been winked at by Matt Lauer's peen, there only option would be Al Roker. I think.
Ann Curry will soon let out her last "good morning, good morning, good morning, everybody, morning" as co-host of Today, because Matt Lauer hates her and he's hoping that for his next edition of "Where in the World Is Matt?" he'll report from her vacant office. For months now, there's been rumors that the producers of Today can't wait to pink slip Ann, and when Matt resigned, he let them know that he really wants a new co-host. Cut to last night when The New York Times reported that the producers will push Ann out of the anchor chair any day now. They're hoping to get Ann out before the Olympics start. So your dream of seeing Ann awkwardly say "mmmm hmmmm" next to a topless Michael Phelps has been crushed!
TMZ says that the NBC peacock put on its trench coat, covered its face with a fedora and met Meredith Vieira in a dark alley to offer her the co-anchor job back. Ann got the job a year ago after Meredith quit, because she was sick of waking up at the hour of the ungods and wanted to spend more time with her family. Meredith turned their asses down, but will stay on as a special correspondent.
Since Meredith is over that shit, NBC has put third hour co-host Savannah Guthrie at the top of their list. Some sources say that NBC will make Ann a foreign correspondent since she's better at reporting from Darfur than asking Kim Kardashian how often she bleaches her asshole hair.
Yeah, Savannah Gurthie is their top choice. They can choose between Savannah, Natalie Mortales and Tamron Hall, and they go with Savannah's unflavored oatmeal ass? That's like saying Shelley Hack is your favorite Charlie's Angel.
Watching Ann interview guests during a fluff piece is about as pleasant as having butt sex with a cactus, but she's not the main problem. I watch that mess every day and every day they show me a viral video I watched three weeks ago, show me how to make a salad, show me the latest summer trends in white capris and force feed me Star Jones' opinion on stupid shit. So yeah, what I'm saying is that it's Star Jones' fault. BLAME STAR JONES.
Out of all the wigs that tried to quit a bitch during Today's ridiculous mess of a Halloween show this morning, why couldn't it have been the dull beaver's ass on top of Al Roker's head?
My nipples have the weirdest hard-on right now and my other parts that usually flutter when Prince Hot Ginge's name comes on my screen are so confused after watching Al Roker as Prince Harry. There is just so many thick layers of HUH?! here. Prince Hot Ginge would never walk into a LensCrafters unless it had a bar of contact lens cases full of vodka, so those glasses on Al Roker's face are historically inaccurate! The top of PHG's head naturally looks like a volcano erupting into an orgasm and so that sad piece of dusty rust carpet on Al's head just isn't going to work. Al looks more like the butch Indian lesbian who sat next to me in 9th grade English and tried to convince me that her ginger hair was all natural and not from a date with Miss Clairol. Bitch totally looks like a Bollywood version of Rojo Caliente.
With all that being said, even though Al Roker makes a terrifying Prince Hot Ginge, it is still my duty to fap to all things Prince Hot Ginge. Today is the day I find out if tears can double as lube.
Here's more from Today overdoing the overdone royal wedding this morning. The cast of messes included Matt Lauer as Prince William, Ann Curry as Kate Middleton, Natalie Morales as Pippa, Savannah Gunthrie as Prince Charles, Hoda & Kathie Lee as Eugenie & Beatrice, the laptop girl from the 4th hour as Posh and Meredith Vieira as Queen Elizabeth.
In an announcement we all saw coming, Meredith Vieira got a little teary in the eyes this morning when she told the Today Show's viewers that she's quitting that bitch after 5 years in June to spend more quality time with her husband and children. Meredith will no longer spend her mornings verbally yanking at Matt Lauer's nuts and trying to figure out how Ann Curry's eyebrows came to be. Stonehenge brows is the make-up department's nickname for the shit Ann has over her eyes. But on to Meredith's announcement.
"This is a difficult day for me. I'm going to try to hold myself together here. After months of personal reflection and private conversations with my family and my friends I've decided to leave Today in June. Even as I say this, and I know it's the right thing, I'm really sad because for the past, I like to say 10 years, this has been my second home.
I've really had a great time, but time is one of those weird things you can never get enough of it. It just keeps ticking away. I know I want to spend mine with my husband Richard and kids who are now rolling their eyes and going, 'No more time, mom.' But I'm going to do it anyway. It means I can't be here every day. I hope to stay in the NBC family that is my goal."
Ann Curry will replace Meredith, Natalie Morales will replace Ann and Savannah Guthrie will replace Natalie.
It isn't a good morning until Ann Curry says it fifty times and nobody can read the news like she can (I'm lying), but her celebrity interviews are just a pile of lukewarm cheese vomit. Like this morning, NeNe Leakes was on (SPOILER ALERT) to talk about how she quit Celebrity Apprentice because the environment was just too toxic for her. Blah. Blah. Blah. And Ann actually faked sympathy by throwing NeNe an "awww" followed by a comforting knee grab. ANN! A stupid reality ho quitting a stupid reality show does not deserve a manufactured "aww." It deserves an eye roll followed by the line, "Oh, I'll tell the surviving victims of Chernobyl that they should stop their whining and pray for you to recover from the toxic poisoning you're suffering through."
There's going to be many looooong mornings now that I'm waking up to Ann.
Soon the halls of The Today Show will only be filled with the memories of Meredith Vieira's nervous laugh and Matt Lauer's flirt eyes, because the two of them are not interested in signing their names on another contract. At least that's what the media is saying. Yesterday, TVGuide said that Meredith won't be renewing her contract this year, because she wants to spend more time with her family and is sick of going to work at the hour of the whore walk of shame. I mean, if you're up at 4, you want to be doing the whore walk of shame instead of going to a job. And now Entertainment Tonight says Matt Lauer will leave Today at the end of 2012, after 15 years on the show. Who's going to be glib? Who's going to cross their legs and throw "come hither on my crotch" looks at models? These are the questions.
Today would not comment on contract negotiations and only said that as of now there's no changes to their cast. But that hasn't stopped anyone from speculating replacements. Ann Curry, Savannah Guthrie, Kathie Lee Gifford (that one is brought to you by my wishful thinking) and Natalie Morales have all been tossed around as possibilities for Meredith's replacement. But you know, I don't think they need to replace Meredith or Matt when/if they leave. Just cancel that whole shit and give all 4 hours to WILLARD FUCKING SCOTT!
YES! And we never have to worry about Willard going away, because he's going to live forever. Willard has proven that the secret to a long life is saying "Smuckers" every damn morning.
