Meredith Vieira Makes More Sexual Gestures Trying to Defend Herself on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Meredith Vieira, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Meredith Vieira should probably just start sitting on her hands from now on. Especially if she intends to continue working in a country that takes anything and everything in a sexual way. The FCC can't police our minds, and Vieira did nothing to help her case of innocence with her appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:37PM ET on NBC).

Her troubles began on 'Today' when she interviewed Best Actor Oscar nominee Colin Firth, and then fellow nominee and Oscars host James Franco. When you're talking to a man, you really can't offer to polish anything of his. So even though she was innocently offering to polish his Oscar if he won -- which is an odd thing to offer anyway, Meredith -- dirty minds immediately went somewhere else.

Later, she found out Franco heard the offer, so to deny that she was implying Firth would win, she offered to polish Franco's Oscar if he won. Jay Leno was having a field day just watching her dig a bigger hole, though he certainly helped her dig it.

"Hey, you got two hands," he said helpfully, implying she could take care of both Firth and Franco's polishing needs. Well, we know what he really meant since they can't both win. He just wanted to see her reaction.

And she gave him just what he wanted with a frantic two-handed gesture she tried to play off like it was "milking a cow." Yeah, because that makes any kind of sense in this context, Meredith. You just got caught forgetting there were cameras on you.

We're telling you, just start sitting on them everywhere you go. Her hands, people! We're talking about her hands!

Meredith's favorite and only subject important to her is her crotch, when she was on The View my husband and I would time it to see how long it took her to bend the conversation around to her crotch or that general area - one time it took her almost 6 minutes before she could do it!!!

Viera meant what she said to come across sexual, it got lots of publicity.

Hey Elaine and Katja: She hosts Millionaire, Elaine. She's also on Leno, and, oh yeah, she makes millions hosting the Today Show - so I guess your opinion kind of lacks any credibility and value in this argument. As for Katja's "mind in the gutter" comment, that's where the joke was - it's called risque humor and it's historically been accepted by most people in adult situations as part of the human experience. You can crawl back into your fundamentalist Puritan cave and not peek out if it bothers you so much.

Very well stated,Rick. These people that are negative posters must be Muslims. Still living in the seventh century.

As far as I am concerned, Meredith Viera is positively talentless and exhibits the personality of a doorknob!...not to mention her constant gaffes...you would think, after how many years on TV that would have her "act" together...I guess some people just never "get it".

Elaine, the only person who doesn't "get it" is you. At least Meredith is able to laugh at herself, and Jay Leno was having a bit of fun at her expense. I was pleased to finally see an article that had nothing to do with politics. Some people take themselves WAY too seriously. I can only imagine what your personality is like.

If the people in this country would get their minds out of the gutter, remarks like this would not be a big deal!!! She is bringing a lot of fun to the Today Show. I love watching her! I lived all over the world and nowhere else are comments, like the one she made, being evaluated in such an immature way. She probably realy did not think anything of it but here people automatically think the worst.
