Amelia Talks Online Dating Dos & Don’ts On “The Today Show”

Oh hey, who’s that with the great bouncy waves? Wait, that’s me! This morning, I appeared on “The Today Show” with my spirit guides, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, to talk about online dating. I was joined by Ian Kerner, a sex and relationships expert and the author of the book She Comes First,…

The Year Wouldn’t Be Complete Without A Kathie Lee Gifford BJ Faux Pas

Thank you, Kathie Lee Gifford, for all the joy you’ve brought us this year on “The Today Show.” Thank you for day drinking and doing silly things. And thank you for this one last “der” moment, where you reference a blow job without even knowing it by mistakenly thinking “BJ” stands for “before Jay” (Hoda&#8217…

Hoda Kotb Talks About Having A Boyfriend At Age 47

“I was a little nervous, I have to say! ‘Cause it doesn’t matter your age. You’re still bringing your boyfriend home to meet your mom, and it’s still weird … [I’m not the] clingy Velcro girlfriend type at all … You just don’t ever expect it at this stage of your life. I didn’t expect…

Kathie Lee & Hoda Do “Today” Without Makeup

This morning, during the millionth hour of “The Today Show,” Kathie Lee and Hoda, ever on trend, decided to go sans fards, like so many recent fashion cover models. Apparently, however, the idea came about because Rosie O’Donnell pointed out that she thought Kathie Lee had been looking differently lately, implying she had some…

Bold 2010 Fashion Prediction: “No Rules!”

The style predictions for 2010 are pouring in as fast as suggestions for how we pronounce the year. We’re partial to Bobbie Thomas’ recent appearance on “The Today Show” because she made a rather dramatic statement: For 2010, “there are no rules!” she declared. Ah, excellent, so maybe that means the above segment i…

Would You Hate Your Parents If They Named You Marijuana Pepsi?

We poke a lot of fun at celebrities who give their kids wacky names like Apple and Pilot Inspektor and Sparrow Midnight, but normal people give their kids — and themselves! — ridiculous monikers as well. “Today” had a hilarious segment this morning about average Americans with wacky names like “Marijuana Pepsi.” Soooo, following…

John Krasinski Makes Our Friday Even Better

It’s Friday (Hallelujah!), and what better way to celebrate than with a minute or two of the adorable John Krasinski (swoon)? Everyone’s favorite Tall Glass of Water stopped by “Today” this morning to talk about his new movie, “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men,” monkeys on space shuttles, and his upcoming wedding to the lucky,…

Rumer Willis Bakes Pies, Cries On Command

This morning, Rumer Willis stopped by the fourth hour of “Today” — otherwise known as the hour that Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee get drunk and talk to “stars” that aren’t famous enough to be on the show during the first three hours when more than just bloggers and unemployed people watch. Anyway, it…

Glamour’s Plus-Sized Model Visits “Today”

Glamour has received loads of praise after publishing a photo in their September issue of plus-sized model, Lizzie Miller. Lizzie, along with Glamour’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Lieve, was on “Today” this morning to talk about the positive response to the photo — which shows Miller naked, with un-airbrushed stomach pudge — and Lieve vowed…

Shortsgate: Michelle Obama Dares To Bare Her Legs!

Oh holy hell. First Lady Michelle Obama has caught some flack for daring to wear shorts while on vacation with her family at the Grand Canyon in 100+ degree heat. (Emphasis all mine because I cannot fathom the absurdity.) This morning on “The Today Show,” The Washington Post’s Robin Givhan and Mary Tomer,…

The Today Show’s Kathie Lee And Hoda Are In The Closet

Matt Lauer Is Totally OK With Your 15-Year-Old Running Around Naked

This morning on “Today,” Matt, Meredith, and Al (do they even need last names anymore?) were introducing a segment about kids running around naked during the summertime. Meredith asked, “At what age does it become inappropriate?” and Matt, pausing to think for a sec, responded, “Sixteen?” Eww? Clip of the awkies moment above!

What’s The Most Backhanded Compliment You’ve Ever Received?

Meredith Viera’s list of crazy on-air antics must be at least as long and sordid as Kathie Lee Gifford’s, if not longer. (I’ll never forget the time she dissed a famous perfume expert and told him she didn’t “get” why anyone would buy a fine fragrance anyway, adding that she exclusively wears Jea…

Bruno Vows To Be Bigger Than Heidi Montag

Sacha Baron Cohen sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show” this morning, only, as expected, he did it as “Bruno.” Awkwardly hilarious from the get-go.

NeNe Leakes Plays Hostess On “The Today Show”

Our girl NeNe Leakes, aka the hottest housewife in Atlanta, helped Hoda host the fourth hour of “The Today Show” this morning. Her new haircut is rather fierce. Not so fierce? NeNe’s assertion that having a child out of wedlock is a mistake and that having friendships with women is hard these days.

Can “The Today Show” Stop Fawning Over The Duggars?

Jon and Kate Gosselin have eight children. Nadya Suleman has 14. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar have 18 and no intention of stopping anytime soon. The Gosselins and Suleman get nothing but bad press, it seems, but Meredith Viera and the rest of “The Today Show” crew practically piss themselves with joy every…

I Hate You, Ann Curry

I can’t help it. I loathe Ann Curry. I know she’s supposed to be the cute, cuddly – but still serious! – one on “The Today Show,” but homegirl makes me want to punch something. For starters, she’s a gusher. She fawns over her celebrity interview subjects like she’s on the verge of…

Carrie Fisher Brings The Crazy To “The Today Show”

Carrie Fisher, best known as Princess Leia from the “Star Wars” franchise, was on “The Today Show” this morning promoting her new memoir “Wishful Drinking.” She had some hilarious little anecdotes about her life growing up in Hollywood, including being told, repeatedly, by Cary Grant not to do acid. I personally loved the…
