Amy Adams’ appearance on “The Today Show” — to promote her movie “Big Eyes” — was canceled at the last minute, reportedly because she said she did not want to talk about the Sony hack. The hack revealed, amongst other things, that Adams and her “American Hustle” co-star Jennifer Lawrence were paid significantly less… READ MORE »

A public marriage proposal may have worked out well for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, but it’s a stunt that should always be approached with caution. Timing and location are everything as is being at least mostly confident that the person you’re asking is going to respond positively. I’m pretty sure that Chirag Shah failed to run through… READ MORE »

Alright, I think it’s time to start a petition to ban Matt Lauer from interviewing young famous women on “The Today Show.” It rarely doesn’t tread into uncomfy territory. (Remember when he asked Anne Hathaway about her vagina?) This morning, in between singing her hit songs “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” Lauer interviewed Miley… READ MORE »

NBC has announced that former “TRL” VJ Carson Daly has been added as a host at “The Today Show.” He is leaving his current gig as host of “Last Call.” No one asked me, but if any former MTV VJ deserves the “Today” job, it’s Riki Rachtman. [Today]

We were all wondering if the “40 Days of Dating” project would end with Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman in a relationship. Who am I kidding? No one was wondering. More like, we were hoping they would come to their senses and break up. They were so glaringly, obviously ill-suited for each other, fighting over… READ MORE »

I never thought I would agree with Tom Cruise about anything, but dammit if Matt Lauer isn’t the smuggest, most terrible interviewer. On Thursday’s “Today Show,” Matt Lauer interviewed Trayvon Martin’s parents Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton. The interview starts out okay, and then Matt Lauer can’t contain his Matt Lauer-ness anymore. Of the jury,… READ MORE »

Paula Deen made her much anticipated appearance on “The Today Show” this morning and attempted to convince Matt Lauer and the public that she is not a racist. Deen insisted that she only ever used the n-word once, during the incident mentioned in her deposition, and went on to say, “If there’s anyone out there… READ MORE »

Poor Ann Curry. She was not only publicly fired from her cohost position on “The Today Show,” but she then had to sit there and weep about it to Matt Lauer — who probably couldn’t wait to see her go. But apparently that was far from the first time the show had humiliated her. Behind the scenes, Ann was reportedly dealing… READ MORE »

Let’s play Two Truths and a Lie. Better yet, let’s play it with Martha Stewart! Martha will go first. Okay, so: she’s friends with Snoop Dogg, she does yoga every day, and she’s a terrible, terrible boss. Do you know which one is the lie? (It’s the last one. According to Martha, of course.) She… READ MORE »

Eww, Matt Lauer. “Anne Hathaway, I’ve seen a lot of you lately.” Really? The “Today Show” host kicked off his interview with the “Les Miserables” actress with a pervy reference to the bare crotch shots that hit the web yesterday, taken when Hathaway exited a car at the movie’s NYC premiere and apparently wasn’t wearing… READ MORE »

So, i flew from NYC to San Jose, CA last night (for the gymnastics Olympics trials, woot!), arriving at my hotel after midnight PST. That means I didn’t get to bed until after 3 a.m. EST. I tossed and turned and then woke up to do my usual East Coast radio gig at, grr, 5:30… READ MORE »

Greetings, friends. We’re going to try and introduce a new feature around here: “The Most Insane Moment On This Morning’s ‘Today Show.'”  The Frisky office always watches the fourth hour of “The Today Show” — that is, when Amelia’s not hanging out with Hoda and Kathie Lee herself! — and we’re going to share their… READ MORE »

So, yeah. Rob Van Winkle, better known as Vanilla Ice, was a Father’s Day gift expert on “The Today Show.” How did I not know about his show “The Vanilla Ice Project” on the DIY Network? Adding to my Hulu queue right now. Yes, he did say, “Word to your father.”  And may I remind… READ MORE »

I’m pretty sure that the best thing to come out of the nation’s obsession with mommy porn series 50 Shades of Grey is this video of Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb fondling ben wa balls on “The Today Show.” Ben Wa balls, of course, are shoved up inside your vagina to stimulate and encourage greater… READ MORE »
