GIVE ME A BREAK!!
You guys OBVIOUSLY like those skinny chicks. I like them voluptuous.
She cleared her throat?
At some point, I would bet we will be seeing a similar article with similar circumstances but the players will be CNN and Kiran Chetry. ;)
Ditto. Her breathless reporting on what a tremendous victory the ruling was for the Gore camp should rank right up with Dewey vs. Truman. Even better was watching her have to go back on the air with a guest an hour later and act like it never happened.
according to her sources she's jobless
Yeah..I like Linda Vester.
I was disappointed when they
took her off the 1:00pm show.
In what way? I obviously missed
it as I can't stand watching the
Bubblehead bleach blonde story
Du Jour, that he allways seems
to be talking about whenever i
see him on TV. Same as Greta.
I was really sad to see Kiren go.
I find myself wondering if the
reason she left, was because they
didn't give her E.D.s spot on F&F
that in my opinion she not only
deserved, but was a shoe in for.
I don't care for E.D.s replacement
at all. Can't even remember her
name. I just don't watch F&F very
Voluptuous yes, Steatophygia no.
I agree. She has the makings of a good reporter ... if she'd just stay away from the tabloid stuff.
I wish her well.
He was actually voer in Iraq and ate with the troops in a combat zone.
He returned and gave a presentation on OFX about how important it was that the U.S. succeed there, and how he was backing Bush 100% on this issue.
Can't remember the date.
Nobody wants someone who looks like Miss Piggy and talks like someone with throat cancer and a severe cold all the time.
Oh and her sources...oh the sources...yikes.
Only Shoeshine Boy would take her back.
She scooped Fox and CNN with a quick interview John Mark Carr (the JonBonet case).
Her mug was all over the place during that time.
Kirin quit? I was wondering what happened to her. She was great. The new blond on the weekends, Courtney, is terrible. She "freezes" before the camera and stumbles around.
I'd do her!
Rita always sounds like she is gasping for air and it makes me uncomfortable. I wonder if her voice had anything to do with getting canned?
I can't stand to watch her but she did sound slightly better the other day.
I grew up with Rita. I knew her well. I have not seen her in 20 years. But then as now she is just a self centered person. All she cares is about her and her spotlight. And as far as between the ears. A zero, nothing!
But she just has the sweetest, sexiest voice. We'll miss her.
Yeah......She went to CNN.
Yes, I think she's REALLY hot!!! And I think her voice is sexy too.
Some people let politics block all perspectives.
I hope so, too. She is a good reporter.
Her voice no longer has that 'bottom fell out' sound anymore.
Its piratically normal!
I met her at an event in 2001. Back then she was thin and her voice was normal. But by the time she left Fox News she had gained weight and her voice had gotten raspy, but like everybody else who watches TV, I didn't really think about it.
Then in early 2005 I got diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had my thyroid removed. Looking back at photos friends had taken of me at the W2 Inaugural Ball, I can see how thick my neck was, but I didn't notice it myself at the time. Anyway, after my surgery, I was watching TV and saw Rita Cosby, and I noticed her neck looked "thick," alot like mine had pre-surgery. Not wanting her to walk around for years with a possible cancer growing in her neck, like I did, I sent an email to her. I never got a response, but I hoped that she would go see a doc to find out if she had a problem with her thyroid - it could have been a goiter, or worse. Maybe it was her thyroid that caused the voice and weight change. If so, I hope it was easily corrected and didn't require surgery, etc. Good luck to her wherever she goes.
Rita's problem with FOX was that when her father died in December, before the Iraq War, she took a month off, that turned into four or five months, maybe six. Laurie Dhue had to fill in for her. So, FOX just never gave her back the shows that she had before her "vacation".
Well that kind of describes 95% of the people in show business doesn't it.
ET here she comes! :-)
I think Linda chose to leave, after having her second child

Linda Vester Not Coming Back To FNC
Last June, TVNewser broke the news that Linda Vester was taking a year-long maternity leave. "It's only a year, and I'm sure the time will fly by," she said last July 3. At the time, Vester's 1pm show, DaySide, was one of the lowest-rated programs on FNC. "It seems likely that Vester won't return to Studio D after her year-long maternity leave," sources said last August.
Well a year has passed, and it's time for Vester to come back to FNC, right? No. Fox News Channel has told ICN that "there are no plans for her to rejoin the network at this time." Meanwhile, DaySide has actually lost viewers since Linda left; she had 225,000 demo and 758,000 viewers in June 2005, and that's down to 209,000 demo and 709,000 viewers in June 2006 with Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy hosting...

Well, i'm one of the ones they lost
when she went. Jerrick & Huddy...
Huddy i liked...*she* would have
been a good replacement for E.D.
But the two together, were qa bit
Donny & Marie...qand the show came
off a bit eoo rice cake-ery.
But that 1 pm slot is going
to be hard for anyone to really
keep the numbers up for, without
an extended build up of audience
loyalty. Especially with so much
fuffer nuttery. It was much better
when they really made the show
about one topic, had relevant
questions, and let the audience ask
more than two filler questions
at the end of the show.
\Besides, it was nice eye candy
to see Linda and then Juliet out
in the audience passing the mike
Steatophygia means having an ass that you could serve thankgiving dinner on.
Jim should hire Rita
to work at Free Republic.
She could moderate
the endless prattle
about Anna Nicole Smith
Freepers LOVE so much!
Anna Nicole Smith, The Investigation
Uhh, no - steatoPYGIA means what you said.
Some guys like women with big butts instead of skinny bony ones.
