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 Jean (she pronounced it as “Gene”) Nate.) Anyhoo, this latest shenanigan is a low, even for her: During an interview in which consumer expert Janice Lieberman described deals people can get from police auction sites, Viera joked, “I can see all the NBC bean counters, all of my wardrobe is going to be from PropertyRoom.com, starting with [pointing to Lieberman] that ugly yellow dress.” ZING! After the audience gasped in horror, she “saved” the excruciating moment by screaming, “No, it looks cute on you. It looks cute on her!” Keep reading »

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. Keep reading »

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. NeNe, we think you’re hanging out with the wrong crew. Keep reading »

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 time the Duggars are on their show. Can someone explain that to me? Today eldest son Josh and his wife Anna were in the studio (with the rest of the clan via satellite) to find out whether they were expecting a girl or a boy, by cutting a cake! The cake was pink which means they are having a girl! And Meredith kept hinting that they should name the first Duggar grandbaby after her, which I suppose, explains all the insane ass kissing. The Duggars are complete loonies. Meredith seems relatively sane. So what’s with the obsession? Keep reading »

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 orgasming from inhaling their talented, sexy, beautiful scent. She glows and raves about their various accomplishments – “So philanthropic!” “You’ve done so much for starving children!” “Your 30 second cameo in this film is cinematic genius!” — and never asks tough questions. She giggles like a school girl who’s seen a boy’s pee-pee for the first time. Oh, and that laugh. That laugh makes me stabby. Keep reading »

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 moment when she corrected Matt Lauer, who called her mom and dad, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, the “Brad and Angelina of their day.” She said, “Actually, they were the Brad and Jennifer Aniston. Liz Taylor was the Angelina,” referring, of course, to Taylor breaking up their marriage. I also loved that she sat in her chair all folded up, like a Shaman. Clip above! Keep reading »

“Twilight” Fans Go Nuts On “The Today Show”

Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, ZOMG, I mean Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, were on “The Today Show” this morning to promote “Twilight” which opens in theaters tomorrow. This interview was awkward to watch for a number of reasons, the first being that Pattinson and Stewart seem really burnt out by all the fan obsession, Stewart especially. I kind of get the feeling that Pattinson likes the fact that he can get all the booty he wants, but frankly, it also seems like the only booty he wants is Kristen’s.

Anyway, it was also awkward because “Today” featured a lot of footage of fans going absolutely apes**t for Pattinson, declaring things like, “He’s the love of my life! The reason for my existence! And I love him!” And that was just coming from a teenager — at the end of the segment, Meredith Viera dragged Pattinson and Stewart out into the cold to answer questions from “Twilight” fans, including one woman, who had to be in her late 20s, whose head seemed poised to explode. Clip above! (Oh, also, Robert, time to wash the hair. It looks like it smells.) Keep reading »

The Today Show’s Wacky Olympics Coverage

The Today Show‘s coverage of the Olympics in Beijing has been cracking me up. This morning they featured this troupe of Chinese old women who taught themselves hip-hop dance moves and yesterday morning, Al Roker and Matt Lauer showed off their skills on the dance floor, performing rhythmic gymnastics. Poor Al looks like he might have a heart attack at any second. Clip above! Keep reading »
