Al Roker Does Not Want to Go to Kandi Burruss' Adult Toy Shop (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 1st 2011 12:00PM
Kandi Burruss is one of the ladies from 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,' but she's got a few other entrepreneurial ventures on the side. In addition to launching her own show where she'll give everyday people the opportunity to record music, Burruss is also opening a toy shop. A special, adult, toy shop, as Al Roker and Natalie Morales found out the awkward way in a 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) interview.

"Phaedra opens up a funeral home, you're opening up a toy shop ... you don't want to get those mixed up," Al said, not realizing how just how correct he was.

"No ... it's a different kind of toy shop," Kandi said, laughing, as it became clear to Al and Natalie what they were talking about.

'Today' Anchors Prepare for Linda Evans Interview With 'Dynasty'-Style Catfight (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 11th 2011 3:00PM
TV hosts will normally do anything to ensure their hair doesn't get ruffled. But to prepare for their interview tomorrow with former 'Dynasty' star Linda Evans, 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) co-hosts Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie got into an old-fashioned, hair-pulling catfight ... in jest, of course.

After playing footage of the classic 'Dynasty' department store throw-down between Evans and Joan Collins, Guthrie and Morales were inspired to fake slap, hair-pull and strangle each other.

"It looks like so much fun!" Guthrie exclaimed, fighting through laughter.

Jeff Lewis Critiques Natalie Morales's and Savannah Guthrie's Clashing Patterns (VIDEO)

Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie with Jeff Lewis of 'Flipping Out' on 'Today' Jeff Lewis decorates homes with an eye toward reselling on Bravo's 'Flipping Out.' Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie asked Lewis to critique how well their dresses matched, and the three of them took turns taking joking offense at each other.

Lewis said he was upset at Morales for not watching the last season of 'Flipping Out,' noting that some critics have called his show "the best show you're not watching." "Just because I haven't been returning your phone calls doesn't mean you can't watch," he said.

Then Guthrie asked Lewis to put his fashion sense to use, asking him if two print dresses together on one couch offended his "obsessive-compulsive eye." "I actually don't mind mixing patterns, there's a lot going on here," he told them. If Morales lost the yellow sweater, he thought it might work better. "You've got a great bra on today, by the way," he said to her. "You look great."

Natalie Morales Rides a Dragon on 'Today' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Mar 26th 2010 4:29PM
Let's face it. We all want to learn how to ride dragons. But so few of us ever get the chance. But on the most recent episode of 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), correspondent Natalie Morales got to live out all our dreams, riding on top of an enormous replica of a dragon from the new film 'How to Train Your Dragon.'

So what is the experience of riding a huge dragon actually like? According to Morales, "I feel like I'm on one of those little kids' rides. You know; you put the quarter in and go." Excellent. And thank you, Natalie, for living out all of our nerd fantasies for us.

Aimee Garcia Breaks Finger While Shooting 'Trauma' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 15th 2010 4:00PM
While shooting 'Trauma,' actress Aimee Garcia threw herself into a fight scene and broke her finger, she said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). But, fortunately, her work on the NBC show about first responders enabled her to treat the injury herself.

"This happened on set," Garcia said, showing her broken finger to Natalie Morales. "I was doing a scene where my ex-military boyfriend gets in a fight, and it was scripted that I just stand there ... I just got involved. I pulled one actor off of another and they loved it. They said, 'Keep doing it.' We did it 12 times and I didn't realize on the first take I broke my finger."

Al Roker and Natalie Morales on Marriage, Toilet Paper (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 4th 2010 4:30PM
Of all the things that can ruin a happy marriage, toilet paper seems to figure most prominently for the anchors of 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). Al Roker and Natalie Morales complained about their spouses and toilet paper during today's episode of the morning show.

When asked whether there's an issue in her marriage that needs addressing, Natalie Morales said, "The toilet paper roll. When it's done, my husband never replaces it," adding that she boycotted replacing toilet paper in her bathroom to no effect.

And So It Begins: 'Today's' Annoying Olympics Coverage

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 12th 2010 12:29PM
Roker and Lauer on the two-man luge at the 2006 Torino OlympicsAlthough I'm generally a 'Today' show loyalist, for the next two weeks, I'm going to be a 'Good Morning America' fan.

Why? Three words: The Winter Olympics.

Every two years, since NBC started carrying the Olympics, they turn their top-rated morning news show into essentially the Games' morning recap show. Sure, you still get that first half hour of pure news, but after that, the show becomes all-Olympics, all the time, from examining the personal stories of the athletes, to travelogues about whatever exotic locale the Games are in that year, to deep, 'SportsCenter'-like examination of the previous night's results.

But that's not the part that annoys me the most. When the hosts go out and try to do the Olympic sports themselves, the cringe factor goes up exponentially. Especially when Matt Lauer and Al Roker are involved.

It's a White Collar job for The Middleman's Natalie Morales

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 8th 2009 10:02AM
Natalie MoralesSomehow I don't think this new gig will be as much fun as her old one. But out of love for The Middleman, I will be happy that Natalie Morales has been upgraded to series regular on White Collar. The job started as a two-episode guest spot, so I guess somebody was impressed with our Dub-Dub. If I can't have one of the best shows of the past several years, I should at least be satisfied when the people that brought it to life find new gigs.

The premise of White Collar puts it in that procedural category that generally doesn't appeal to me. But the twist on the formula is fairly novel. Con artist captured by the Feds offers to work with them to nab other criminals in exchange for his freedom. Morales joins the mix as a junior FBI agent who has enough smarts and attitude to hold her own with both the men in uniform and the criminals they're tackling.

Could the Middleman follow Family Guy and Futurama back into production?

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 24th 2009 5:05PM
The MiddlemanWouldn't it be great if The Middleman DVD, available July 28, sold so well that ABC Family had no choice but to put the show back in production? Of course it would. There wasn't a smarter or more clever show of its type on television at the time (sorry Chuck).

Laura Hudson had a chance to sit down with the series creator in San Diego. In her interview over at Comics Alliance, Javier Grillo-Marxauch says that if DVD sales are great, The Middleman would probably go back into production. I suspect his enthusiasm had more to do with the excitement that comes with being at San Diego than anything ABC Family has indicated.

The fans stopping at the booth are excited about the show and that fever can be infectious. They'll do what they can to spread the word, but I just don't think that fan-base is big enough to change the network's minds. Or that ABC Family is interested enough to care.

Brian Williams puts in his hour at Today - VIDEOS

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 20th 2009 2:00PM
Brian and Matt sitting in a tree...Seeing Brian Williams sitting next to Matt Lauer on Today was a bit disconcerting, wasn't it? I knew NBC was having some budget problems, but I didn't realize how thin of a bench they actually had. Williams subbed in for Meredith Vieira, but only stayed on the show for an hour, as I'd imagine he'd rather spend the 8:00 hour putting together tonight's Nightly News lineup than talk about ten ways to keep your car running or what Drew Peterson ate for breakfast.

Anyway, Williams was at times a bit too stuffy for the morning gig, but his famous sense of humor showed through a number of times, including the clips after the jump. The first one is a clip reel of some strangely homoerotic interplay between Williams and Lauer, which Al Roker called "a Whitman's Sampler of man candy." The second one is of Lauer, Williams, and Natalie Morales making their Oscar picks.

The Middleman: The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome (season finale)

The Middleman: The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome
"Can't wait to hear this guy's monologue. 'I am the Palindrome. Feel my power. Power my feel. Palindrome the am I.'" --The Middleman

Paul's out and about traveling; I think he's been recruited to the exciting world of temporary employment by the Jolly Fats Wehawkin Temp Agency; so I'm stepping in to cover the first season finale of The Middleman. I'm not even going to consider this as a series finale because it's just too smart and too good to end. ABC Family has yet to make a decision one way or the other about the future of the show, but apparently ratings haven't been great so it's riding the bubble right now.

The Middleman: The Clotharian Contamination Protocol

Mary Pat Gleason(S01E11) "We have vents large enough to crawl in through with accessible registers everywhere. Was this building designed by TV writers, or what?" --Wendy Watson

Well, well, Wendy Watson. Wow! Natalie Morales was possibly looking hotter than ever in the opening scene of tonight's episode. it's amazing the depth of cleavage they are able to create with what assets she has. The power of Hollywood brassieres, I guess. My wife would kill for that magical ability. I wouldn't be displeased either.

Then they upped the ante by giving us a full-on panties and bra scene. Or boxers and t-shirt for the Middleman if that's more your flavor. I guess for next week, she'll spend the entire episode in a string bikini. Maybe that'll help the ratings. It's sad to think that next week is the season, and possibly series, finale of what has become a charmingly delightful little show.

The Middleman: The Obsolescent Cryogenic Meltdown

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 12th 2008 2:18PM
Kevin Sorbo in (S01E9) "He's looking at me all pervy, isn't he?" --Wendy Watson about Middleman 69

Well, if anyone was going to bring the leather catsuit from the Avengers inspired intro sequence into the show proper, it would be a Middleman who'd been frozen since 1969. It was cool how the Middleman from 1969 was such a different, more hedonistic personality than the goofily straight-laced Middleman of our era. He carried himself more like James Bond ... well, more like Austin Powers, really. The casting of Kevin Sorbo in this role was just inspired as he really threw himself into the zaniness of the Middleman Universe.

It looks like the sexual innuendos are going to continue as there were again a few lines more explicit than you'd think ABC Family would be comfortable with ("I'm looking for some hooch!"). That said, the show is still relatively clean fun and there's a level of quality amidst the silliness and snappy dialogue that is sorely missed on most shows. The depth of the characters and the world they inhabit just continues to grow after each episode.
