Continuing the crash and burn...

Of Curry on the couch. This morning AC was in rare form marked by leading questions and awkward giddy behavior.

While questioning some expert-type on the results of an ADHD survey, AC said (not verbatim, but you get the point): “So, you studied kids with ADHD from 197? to today and found that the symptoms followed them into adulthood in terms of their time/money management and relationships. Is that correct?”

What kind of question is that? What is the guest left to do but agree and re-iterate what you just said. Why not say: “Tell me about your study.” And then: “What were the findings? “

ANN: Do you not realize that you just answered your own question? Do you think you are a prosecutor? Most interviewers use their questions to dig deeper. Not you. You deliver the substance yourself and then ask, with a lilting of your voice: Is that correct?” or “Right? The lifting of your voice at the end of a sentence does not a question make.

While previewing a segment on the “When Harry Met Sally” dilemma, AC turned to Matt and said: “We’re friends. There’s no sexual tension here, is there?” Of course, Matt answered perfectly with a so-so shake of his hand and reminder that, “you did kiss me yesterday – hard to forget that!”

The “Can Men and Women Really Be Friends” piece was equally disastrous with AC cutting off her panel (of experts? Not sure what qualifies Bob the Bachelor to comment…) to let everybody know what she thinks about her relationships with men and women

On a positive-non-AC-related note, we enjoyed seeing Natalie escape from behind the news desk to report on the L’Occitane Lavender Festival in the plaza. Let's see more of her legs.

What was she wearing this morning? Was that her nightgown? Someone needs to tell her that satin in the morning (white satin, at that) is a big no-no-no-no-no, esp. when you are wearing it with a pink cardy that appears to have been crocheted by your granny. Doesn't she have a stylist?

I think you would be surprised but a lot of these news people don't have their own stylist. What they wear is what they bought themselves and store in their own closets. I'm sure that TODAY hires its own make up people but I think for the most part what you see is what you get.

Her interview style is teh spitting image of the SF Chronicle's movie rating system. If you put some hair and a cardigan on that guy, he'd be AC!

"I think you would be surprised but a lot of these news people don't have their own stylist."..........................Im not surprised, just take a look at Alexis Glick and the bizarre clothes she wears on the show ( like today: 8/23/05). She might be the WORST dressed woman on television, the Today Show should seriously think about hiring a stylist for the fashion challenged Glick and some of there other on air personalities. However Natalie Morales is a sweetheart who dresses with alot of style and class.
