What were you expecting Russian President Vladimir Putin? Or maybe President Trump? It’s Megyn Kelly’s first interview on NBC so it was going to be BIG. Well, so much for real news! What can I say? It’s not Fox. It looks like even Megyn Kelly is ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’.
In early April, it was rumored that NBC was trying to secure an interview with the Russian president. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack was allegedly hoping for an interview with Putin. So much for that.
Of course, Megyn Kelly could have had an interview with President Trump and his first 100 days in office. I did say she was on NBC, right? So, so much for that.
Nope. It turns out Kelly’s first real “newsworthy” interview is going to be with the Kardashian women. I guess we all know she’s looking for ratings there, don’t we? The problem is, if NBC does have higher ratings now, they won’t know if it was because of Megyn or the Kardashians. I guess THAT’s the reality!
Megyn Kelly left Fox News to join NBC in January. You may have read she is going to be leading a daytime show for NBC in the fall. In addition, Kelly will be hosting a magazine program on Sunday nights expected to start in June.
If you had asked a couple weeks ago, who Megyn Kelly’s first interview was going to be with, some might have said Vladimir Putin. Others may have suggested President Trump, but not so. While everyone assumed, Andy Lack, NBC News Chairman would land a big one, when it came to real news and headlines, it turned out not so. It looks like NBC went for ‘reality TV’ and ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’. Which tells me, I guess THAT’S who they think is BIG when it comes to ‘REAL’ news. I’d say they’ve confused reality TV with the real news…unless of course, you’re into THAT or reality TV is what you consider the REAL news.
TMZ is reporting that Megyn Kelly is kicking off her show with a sit-down with the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Kelly was photographed on the set of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Thursday, where she reportedly filmed an interview with Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and Kris Jenner.
Now, I know what you’re thinking….WHAT no Caitlyn? Nope. No Caitlyn! Oh, well…what are you going to do?! Deal with it!
So, you have the Kardashian women…..
First, you’ve got Kendall Jenner. She just finished a great commerical with Pepsi. WHOA! Talk about controversial….to say the least! Didn’t catch it? Ok…here you go!
“Live Bolder. Live Louder. Live for now”….Seriously? So it’s about the generation….the movement…and handing a policeman at a protest a Pepsi! Seriously!? Come on man! THAT got over 9.7 MILLION views! That’s right! Deal with it!
Next, there’s Kourtney Kardashian who was recently in Mexico celebrating her 38th birthday with a bunch of friends from the ‘in crowd’. Yes, she’s a mother of three, who according to most, would say she loves to ‘cut loose’ and wear a bathing suit with the word ‘mamacita’ or ‘hot mama’ on it. Who DOES that?
Then, we have Khloe Kardashian…who evidently is being ‘dumped by her basketball boyfriend Tristan Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers…yes! Gasp!…because he needs to ‘take a break’…and oh yeah’….focus on the upcoming NBA basketball playoffs. What the heck! Seriously?!
Next is Kylie Kardashian….the younger sister who apparently the craze now is,… people are requesting a younger, firmer bum….like hers. Well, I’ll be….I guess THIS is the news I have been missing. Or so it would seem.
Moving on, there’s Kim Kardashian…who was also in Mexico celebrating with her sister, Kourtney’s birthday. Yes. It seems the news there is….well, she’s got cellulite. What a suprise?!
To top it off, I guess even her bum doctor has branded her derrière out of control – comparing it to a balloon which has been blown up then deflated. Apparently after the pictures were snapped in Mexico, there was a social media storm suggesting…..gasp….of all things….that “photoshopping” must have taken place in the past. Really? What was your first indication?
Oh….my…..GOD! Seriously….THIS IS the news a LOT of people crave?…Give me a frickin’ break!
For Megyn Kelly, it’s a surprising choice. This tells me she’s looking to be more like the next Oprah Winfrey. Maybe we will find all her stories on NBC will focus on celebrities stories or human interest. Again, I did say she is at NBC.
Kelly did allegedly turn down about $100 million and a 4-year contract from Fox so she could have ‘greater balance’. I think that balance was referring to her children and family, though. Because if she were to do a show after this one, to be considered ‘fair and balanced’ she’d have to report something about Alex Jones from ‘Infowars’.
