Proof That Public Proposals Aren’t Always The Best Idea

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…

Watch Matt Lauer’s Awkward & Icky Interview With Miley Cyrus On “The Today Show”

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,…

Carson Daly To Wake Up Early As New “Today Show” Host

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] Gia Allemand's mother i…

Jessica And Tim From “40 Days Of Dating” Reveal Their Relationship Status On “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.

Matt Lauer Acts Smug While Interviewing Trayvon Martin’s Parents

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,…

Paula Deen Cries On “The Today Show”

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…

Details Of Ann Curry’s Reported “Today Show” Bullying Will Make You Gasp

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…

Martha Stewart Talks To “The Today Show” About Baking With Snoop Dogg

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.)…

Anne Hathaway Handles Matt Lauer’s Icky Question About Her Vadge Flash With Total Class

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…

Channing Tatum’s Dance Moves On “Today” Just Woke Me Up

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…

Word To Your Father, Courtesy Of Vanilla Ice

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…

Kathie Lee And Hoda Fondle Ben Wa Balls On “The Today Show”

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…

Baby Genius Needs To Poop On “The Today Show”

This segment proves that three-year-old geniuses are just like other toddlers in the sense that when they have to poop when they have to poop. Even a Mensa-level IQ can't help this toddler predict when her bowels are going to go haywire on a live "Today Show" segment. Too many doughnuts in the green room.

Beyonce, The World’s Tiniest Puppy, Visits “The Today Show”

Meet Beyonce. The other Beyonce, that is. Beyonce is currently the world's tiniest puppy; she's so tiny, in fact, that she can fit in a mug. Mind you, she's only five weeks old, so at some point, she is not going to be the world's tiniest puppy. But let's not ruin her moment of fame, okay?

Morning Quickies: Kim Kardashian Calls Kanye “Just A Friend”

Kim Kardashian hit up "The Today Show" this morning and addressed the rumors that she's porking Kanye West. And by rumors, I mean he released a song about how he "fell in love" with her, and the other day they saw a movie together, went back to his place, and she was photographed…

Sarah Palin Goes Ga-Ga For Tori Spelling On “The Today Show”

I should probably be upfront and just make it clear from the get-go that I am not a Sarah Palin fan. But I watched her hosting gig on "The Today Show" anyway this morning, and found it to be about a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale. Still droppin' her Gs? Check! Still…
