WTTG‘s Bob Barnard was going live at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History for Museum Week and he had a African Moon Moth on his ear during most of the shot. When the bug flew away, the reporter found out it left something behind. Two things to be exact, and those things are eggs. How did Barnard react when he found out? In a word, “Yuck!”
So I have to wonder is this the grossest thing to happen on live television? Although, it makes morning news a whole lot more interesting. He literally made two babies on live television. What other newscast can claim that?
We all love when someone falls, admit it. So what happens when News Be Funny puts together some of the best reporter falls into one video? We get 5 minutes of pure joy as we watch them from doing a standup to falling down! Some look painful, but even those are fun(ny) to watch. So sit back on a sturdy chair and watch these news people go from serious to funny unintentionally in the blink of an eye.
Ellen DeGeneres has been playing pranks on Matt Lauer for the last few months and the morning news anchor has had enough. So he finally decided to get his revenge.
He did this by putting 20,000 ping pong balls in her car. When the daytime talk show host saw what he did, she swore her revenge on him. As it was said in The Fly, “Be afraid, be very afraid!”
I don’t normally feel for the Today show host, but in this case I do because you know she’s going to get him good. Real good! It was nice knowing you Matt Lauer.

Network Ten’s Natasha Belling wore a shirt that people can’t stop talking about. It is not because of the color of it. It is not because of how low cut it is. So what is it?
Once I tell you, you won’t be able to unsee it.
The neckline looks something she doesn’t have it. Do you see it yet?
Nope? It looks like a man’s baseballs and bat or his frank and beans.
See you can’t unsee it.
Last week, KTVI‘s April Simpson became an instant viral sensation when Kevin Hart posted a video of her from February 2013. In that video, he former co-anchor, Tim Ezell, called her The Hamburglar when he tossed to her because of the black and white stripped shirt she was wearing. Let’s just say if looks could kill, he would be dead right about now.
Since that video was such a huge international success, her newsteam decided to surprise her this morning. McDonald’s teamed up with Fox2 and had the real Hamburglar come to visit her during the 9a hour. Even though, it has been over 2 years since the initial incident, she still does that bitch face like it was yesterday. The make matters worse, she is a vegetarian so she couldn’t even eat any of the burgers that the fast food joint provided to the station.
I hope that KTVI continues to do things to piss her off because I love her bitch face. She does it better than anyone I know! Oh crap, I just felt her give me that death stare.

Sylvia Jeffreys spent the day with adventurer Bear Grylls and he made her eat a worm. The 9News reporter was asked to talk about her experience on their Today and the anchor Lisa Wilkinson had a deep question for her. She asked, “Did you swallow? Did you? Or did you spit out?” Jeffreys didn’t know what to do, but laugh in shock. Eventually she did get out, “I swallowed the worm.” To which Wilkinson replied with, “I am impressed that you swallowed. I really am.” The men at the anchor desk couldn’t control their laughter and were having problems keeping their heads up because they were laughing so hard.
Since Wilkinson wouldn’t let it go, Sylvia added, “Is there anything else you would like to say about that story I worked very hard on for many hours?”
I don’t know about you, but it sounds like Jeffreys had another type of worm in her mouth?!?
When it comes to Wilkinson, I wish someone recorded her reaction when she found out what what was so hysterical about her questioning? Preferably the man in her life!
April Simpson was getting ready to read the news headlines and everything was going fine in her mind. That was until her KTVI co-anchor, Tim Ezell, tossed to her. What’s the big deal? He called her Hamburglar because she was wearing a black and white shirt just like the fast food mascot. I guess she is not a fan of McDonald’s because if looks could kill he would be dead now. Actually, does anyone know if he is still with us because after all she did say she was going to get him back. Although maybe he got her a Happy Meal as a peace offering and all is good between them now. How can you not be happy when you start playing with the little toy that comes with it?

On Thursday, everyone became obsessed with what color is #TheDress. KTLA decided to do some heavy hitting reporting on it by going to LAX and asking people there about it. Eric Spillman thought he got a great exclusive, when he saw that Shirley MacLaine was entering the airport. Only problem is, that isn’t Warren Beatty’s sister. The woman he was talking to doesn’t even look like her. In fact, that woman looks about half the age of the Terms of Endearment star.
Now before you are like, how does a station based in Hollywood not know what a Hollywood star looks like, KTLA is the same station that employs Entertainment Reporter Sam Rubin, who can’t tell the difference between Samuel L Jackson and Laurence Fishburne. Maybe they need a crash course in Entertainment? It’s like working in DC and not knowing who the politicians are.
Billy Bush had a one on one with Margot Robbie and it looks like his one was on her one. Seriously, doesn’t it look like the Access Hollywood host is having a real up close and personal chat with The Wolf of Wall Street actress?
They say a picture doesn’t lie. So is this the first photo to not tell the truth?
The other morning WABC did a story about a pregnant woman who swallows swords and the post-chatter between the anchors was better than the VO. That’s because Leslie Sykes couldn’t stop telling her co-anchor, Phillip Palmer, that that woman could really relax her sphincter. Phil just kept his head down in shame and she kept repeating it. I wonder if Leslie was so obsessed with that because she wanted to get some pointers from her on how to deep throat like that? I know I do!
