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

Watch Video

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, one of my favorite sex advice books. Richard Simmons does not make an appearance, but our interaction before the segment gave me an additional boost of energy and excitement. (In short, he fluffed me.) Check it out!

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’s new boyfriend). I’m sure Hoda Kotb and Jay thank you as well. [Perez Hilton]

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 someone would look at me the way he looks at me. And in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever been looked at like that in my life, quite frankly.”

—Hoda Kotb of “The Today Show” just made us say “awwwww” while talking about bringing her boyfriend, lawyer Jay Blumenkopf, home to meet her parents at age 47. So, so sweet. Also, could a person have a more lawyerly name than ‘Jay Blumenkopf’? [People] Keep reading »

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 cosmetic work done. During the makeup-less segment, Kathie Lee encourages Rosie to look for scars as evidence. Meanwhile, Hoda said she felt liberated by the experience. All of this gave me an idea, one I have not shared with the rest of the staff until just now — someday, in the near future, The Frisky will be run for a day sans fards. Stay tuned! Keep reading »

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 is null and void? (Also, gee whiz, we’ve never heard that one before.) Maybe fashion in ’10 will be more ’09ish than we’ve anticipated after all.

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 that line of thinking, maybe I should name my kid after my two favorite ingestibles — Mac ‘N’ Cheese Diet Coke!
