Sloppy Mornings with Ann

I saw something this morning that made me want to hurl chunks of last night’s tomato basil pasta feast all over the entire house. And for once I can say with 100% confidence that baby whoorlito had no part of this.

Call me crazy, but doesn’t The Today Show have hair and makeup people? They must, considering Katie Couric looks semi-decent most of time. Except for the lip liner. What is up with the lip liner?

Case in Point:


Look at that hair! Draped all over her shoulders, all tangled and shit. Is she attempting to form dreadlocks? BRUSH THE HAIR.

Here’s a lovely back view as well.


I think I actually saw little hair mites crawling around that mess.

    We were thinking the same thing this morning!! She needs her hair cut. It looks SOOO much better when it is just above her shoulders. This looks like she’s trying to be Vic Secret model ‘glam’… but failing miserably.

    And can I comment on the hair of the woman she’s talking to in that second picture? (kelly mcdonald or something). She’s on almost every day as the White House correspondent, but (in the voice of Chandler) could she part her hair any further to the side? Seriously. They have to use a lot of product to get her hair to stay so drastically parted.

    Its been *years* since I turned on the today show. (i hate them all. bastards) Last time I saw Ann, she was all bobbed and shoulder lengthed at the most. Wow! This is a big diff.

    Except, I think its pretty. :( Doh.

    She looks like an Asian Elvira.

    Asian Elvira! :D

    I love it, Lissa.

    Asian Elvira is perfect-o!

    I am glad I don’t watch The Today Show any longer. Between Ann’s crazy unkempt hair and Katie’s scary lipliner, I might never make it through a day.

    I, too, boycott THE TODAY SHOW. However, that White Hose correspondant looks very EXCORSIST-esque in that screen shot. I feel like I should duck for cover in case her head spins around and begins spewing scary green possession barf.

    Actually, one day she mentioned that she and her daughters were growing their hair to donate to “Locks of Love”. They need 10 inches…I think that she is good to donate!

    Ok, Jesster, I’ll admit it’s wonderful that she is donating her hair to Locks of Love.

    However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have to BRUSH it. I’m pretty sure your hair doesn’t need to be tangled and disgusting to donate it to Locks of Love . ;)

    Not only is her hair hideous, she also does THE WORST INTERVIEWS of anyone on television. She’s an all-around train wreck, I tell ya.

    i’m with you on katie’s lip liner. she went to the erica kane beauty school. i hate lip liner that is a bad outline of your mean clinched mouth.

    You should see the news presenters here. ALL LISPS AND MESSY HAIR! SOMETIMES NO MAKEUP!

    Hmmm. When I saw this picture, my first thought was “Oh, her hair looks pretty.” I guess I like the messy bed-head look. Mostly, I wish I had long smooth hair that didn’t get frizzy from the slightest bit of humidity.

    But I’m totally with you on the lipliner with Katie. Her lips always look dry too. I just want to get in there with some Kiehl’s lip balm!

    Mrs Big Wobbley does not agree with Mr BW- Ann, comb your hair.

    Are we sure these aren’t extensions? They look filthy in a Britney Spears post-Federline way.

    Maybe it was really windy that day. And she was already late that morning because her coffeemaker broke and she was busy getting a quickie before work from the gardener because her husband left her five years ago and she hasn’t had anyone since then.

    But then again, maybe not.

    In an unrelated note (though I completely despise the Today show), I was sick for a couple of weeks and somehow missed that your preggers. CONGRATULATIONS! …just one more person who gets to have a baby before I’m even engaged. …but I’m happy for you… really, I am. :)

    I saw Ann C the same morning after a Today Show hiatus and I actually thought she was doing the Paris Hilton thing and wearng extensions.

    Not good.

    I’m not sure about the hair – I love it if, say, we’re on E! or another Hollywood Insider type show. But for morning TV? Ugh. Not “morning TV-y.”

    Katie Couric has the worst face EVER. “Hi! I’m Katie Couric and I’M ALWAYS SURPRISED AND SMILING!” I’d like to kick her in the lipliner.

    BTW: I like Soledad, but have you SEEN some of her outfits? What was with the robin’s egg blue cardigan WITH THE PINK AND WHITE YARN BALLS?! JFC. Dude. You can be 10 minutes late if it means you’re going to look like a reprisal of Mr. Rogers, in female form.

    I don’t remember if I have mentioned this, but I agree 100% with the Ann Curry hate. This just cracks me up! There’s just something about her that is so arrogant. The question is – why?

  • Jesster

    January 9, 2006 at 11:26 am

    Agreed, I am sure that Locks of Love would appreciate something more along the lines of nice, pretty, COMBED, not 3 days on a heroine bender looking hair. I meant she is GOOD to go with the donation–donate that mop, already Ann!

    Ann Curry is growing her hair along with her daughter so that they may donate it to the “Locks of Love” organization. The donation will go to a little girl who can not grow hair due to cancer or has the unexplained hair loss called Alopecia.
