Ann Curry Missed Out On The Time Of My Life

July 20th, 2011 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

…when she said no to a Dirty Dancing lift by our boyfriend, the Goz. Like, WHAT? WHY? And with those hawt pink come-hither heels on? Surely she didn’t MEAN to refuse. But she did. Maybe the temptation was too much. I know if I was in hawt pink come-hither heels with Ryan Gosling asking to lift me into the air–like Baby who nobody puts in a corner OMG OMG this is the stuff of my teenage DREAMS–I too would be scared of an overexcitement pee or embarrassing squeal. But not too scared to say YES.

Anyway, who took up the slack? Al Roker. Seriously.

Oh, I would give anything to be Al Roker!!! And wow, did I really just write that? Is this what the Goz DOES to me?!?!?!?!? Weird. Whatever. I love it.

The Today Show Just Got A Little More Hardass. Awesome!

June 16th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Al Roker hosted Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt on the Today Show yesterday, and properly clowned the famous-for-nothings for majorly pussying out on the wait-this-is-an-actual-unscripted-reality show, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

After Roker’s opener, “Now there are those who say that you guys are the poster children for everything that is wrong with celebrity in this country,” the best part of the video is most certainly when the Today veteran asks Heidi a very simple question, referring to the couple’s messy exit from the show (3:40 of the clip): “Are you proud of this?”

He asks. Over. And over. And she fumbles because she can’t really deal, or understand, or–we’re hoping–actually be proud of her actions. Ever.

It’s painful, really. Until at last her answer surfaces: “I mean, I’m not ashamed.

And, truth be told, we aren’t the least bit surprised.

Ann Curryella

Meredith Vieira as Pinocchio, Matt Lauer as Humpty Dumpty, Ann Curry as Cinderella, and Al Roker as The Gingerbread Man

The Today show crew dressed up as fairy tale characters for Halloween, and our favorite robot Ann Curry went as Cinderella, or, in her own words, “an ethnic J.Lo Cinderella.” While I’m glad she’s making a case for ethnic Cinderellas, she looks more like an ethnic J.Lo Cinderella’s evil stepmonster trying to upstage her stepdaughter at some royal event to which the evil stepmonster was charitably invited, despite being a raging shebitch who used to make Cindy scrub floors and clean toilets. Her Cinde-weave looks really grey. The cream color of her dress washes her out, too. And I don’t think anyone over the age of 6 should ever wear a ballgown, because they’re aging (whenever I watch the Oscars, I scream this all night long at the television), a problem that Ann doesn’t have in real life, making this costume all the more confounding.

Ah well. I suppose things could be worse. Like, say, having a big blue M&M for a ballsack.
