Today's women in media are not "equal" because they're in a class by themselves, a sorority of media vixens! Every one of them -- statuesque, chiseled, sultry... The reporters are getting cuter, but if you want a chair, you better be smokin' hot.
You might call this a tribute to the girls who put the "boob" in boob tube. I'm in awe at the way they strut their stuff unabashedly each night. There is no conflict of interest with the feminist in me. We're talking about journalists who are udderly qualified and also pretty. Looks matter, and they've capitalized professionally.
Kudos for using all your assets to make the news fun to watch!
Just between us girls, D, the standard you've set is impossibly high. Three out of five days you look ready to hit the clubs after work, and on the suit-days we gape and wonder, "how does your tailor consistently manage such a tiny margin of error?" Those stressed upper buttons never move. We know, we're staring. Is it tiring to be so fabulous every day? Signed, Your biggest Fan
A newer anchor, one we rarely get to see, is Ilona Carson at Channel 13. According to MMA, she's Dominique, Version 2.0: younger, blonder, bigger lips. (Hey, we said it's a cruel business.) On rare occasion that I catch her act, she's rock-solid: well-heeled, serious, and serious eye-candy. I'm guessing that only a few cup sizes separates her from the big-time.
Keep an eye on that Ilona, I know my husband will...
This sorority could go on and on, so I'll give just one last nod to Lucy Noland. She's the exotic china doll who replaced Lisa Foronda at 11 last year. Of course, knowing there was a new girl in town, my household did all the research. Can you believe she's a single mom and has a kid in high school? Bet they all want to play at little Jimmy's house after school.
I read that an on-air joke in NY was made about her being "bootielicious" on account of her curves and fresh style. It hit the airwaves and Wikepedia made note. She successfully fought to have that reference removed. I'm sure its hard enough for her to be taken seriously...
I know, I know, we're weird news-anchor-junkies in this house. MMA is a man, and I'm not sure what my excuse is. I guess its true, the saying that women dress for other women.
