Been growing a small crush on Brian Williams for years – mostly because I love it when he’s on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. But now? After his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week?
For the Gin and Juice, sure. And the Rapper’s Delight before that, fine. But mostly it’s the interview. He is so f-cking great in this interview. One minute Williams is invoking Foxy Brown. The next he’s dropping news anchor phrasing, and all the gravitas that comes with it. News Anchors, ah yes. We’re supposed to take them seriously. We’re ONLY supposed to take them seriously. Most of them, almost all of them, wouldn’t get loose like this for fear that we’ll never again take them seriously.
But I know he knows his sh-t. I don’t doubt that he knows his sh-t. And I certainly don’t doubt it just because he’s questioning Lester Holt’s “flow”.
Can we add a news anchor to the Freebie Five List? Is that off-side? I don’t think it is. Let me know.
Yours in gossip,
PS. THANK YOU New York for coming out last night to Barnes & Noble to support my book and my blog. Our gossip discussion was everything I hoped it would be. It was my privilege to get smutty with you. And it was an honour to spend time with so many of you, including those who’ve been visiting this blog from the very beginning. All my love and gratitude.
