Does Megyn Kelly Want Matt Lauer’s Job Or Not?
On Thursday morning’s episode of a show I have not watched in
exactly two weeks, Megyn Kelly invited both
Matt Lauer and the women who accused him of
sexual misconduct to swing by for some interviews. “We remain
committed to telling people’s stories if they choose to come
forward,” she said. “We have been that place in all the other
cases, and we will be that place – as well as for the accused –
on this hour.”
Inviting her disgraced former coworker—along with his
accusers—onto an hour of the show he once headlined (which
happens to be on a network
bad press for what would almost certainly be
incredible television) is a perfect example of what
Kelly likes to call “settling for more.” It is
also a great example of dressing for the job you want,
not the job you have.
These sorts of high profile one-on-ones were previously Lauer’s
specialty (remember his recent interviews with Charlie
Sheen and Bill O’Reilly?), and while Megyn
Kelly has quickly managed to boost her ratings (and
craft her morning show brand) by becoming a go-to spot for
victims of sexual misconduct to share their stories…wouldn’t
an interview with Lauer’s accusers—or, gasp, Lauer himself—be
the ultimate coup? Yes! Yes. It would be an unprecedented
moment of schadenfreude-laced morning show table-turning.
But does it mean she wants to abandon her third hour show and
nab a seat at the big kids’ table alongside Savannah, Al, and
Multiple sources are telling Page Six (an exceedingly reliable
source for NBC gossip, mind you) that she absolutely
is, though at least one “insider” claims she’s just fine where
she is. Myself? I can’t speak for Kelly (though I often speak
at her), but it seems likely that she’s pulling one of

Rosario Dawson and Eric Andre, once a very
good celebrity couple, are no longer a celebrity couple.
People reports Friday that they’ve split after “more
than a year of dating.”
Here’s a photo of the couple during better days, when they hung
out with koalas:
I know you are all very upset right now, so allow me to quote
Call Me By Your Name:
We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster
than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of 30 and have
less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to
feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!

The first three paragraphs of this are as inexplicable as
anything I’ve ever read on that godforsaken website.
