Australian morning show anchor Karl Stefanovic strikes again.
The Today show host known for his bad puns, awkward interview with the Dalai Lama and making dirty jokes on air, Stefanovic pulls a prank on his colleague Roz Kelly. he was most likely channeling the movie Anchorman as he added an extra line in Kelly’s sports segment script. He somehow managed to put “how good are the [hash] cookies there” at the end of her soccer results report which Kelly obviously just had to read.
“See I read everything on the auto-queue. It’s like Anchorman,” she joked after the incident just as Stefanovic and his co-host lose it. She later followed it up with, “”Karl, you’ve won the battle. The war has just begun, though.”
Karl and Roz, I hope you both know the whole world will be waiting to see how your on-air rivalry unfolds. Make it count!

Carly Rae Jepsen
What she’s wearing: The Canadian popstar performed on The Today Show wearing a coral Kelly Wearstler dress paired with printed Alice + Olivia “Juliet” wedges, an ASOS necklace, and a white studded belt.
Why we love it: Coral is on trend as the summer colour for lips, so Jepsen took it a step further by wearing it in a bright summer dress. The watercolour-type pattern creates a cool graphic design and is accented well with her silver accessories.
Takeaway: Monochromatic looks are on trend but make sure to use a different colour for your accessories so things aren’t too matchy matchy.
What they’re wearing: The UK boy band performed at the John F. Kennedy airport in NYC for the JetBlue Live From T5 Concert series, wearing graphic tees, jeans, a sport coat, chambray, and more.
Why we love it: Well it’s more that we like four out of five of the looks and excluding Jay would just seem too cruel. Siva, in the grey sport coat, looks the most put-together with his slightly monochromatic look. His T-shirt has a hint of navy, which gives a subtle pop of colour. Tom and Nathan rock the cool graphic tees, but I give the edge to Nathan since his mustached monocle print is more fun and his khakis set him apart from the rest of the group. Max wears a light blue short-sleeve button-down in chambray (a light woven fabric resembling denim) — a fabric that has made a major comeback. And Jay, well he’s wearing a novelty tee that can be either seen as vulgar or hilarious, nothing fashionable about it. However since Jay is known for his sense of humor he can get away with it, but he does bring down the group’s fashion average. Sorry!
Takeway: When choosing graphic tees try choosing a graphic that suits your personality because they’ll send a message to others about you. Try staying away from novelty tees because they may seem funny at first sight but the joke usually is over by the second glance, then you’ll be the joke instead of your shirt.

Even if you don’t love their music, you have to hand it to the guys of Train that they’re a real class act. After performing on the Rockefeller Plaza for The Today Show this morning, lead singer Pat Monahan took a permanent marker from his back pocket and signed his shirt. Then he stripped off his top and…. well, we have you intrigued. Watch until the end to see what he does.
BTW, our hearts are slowly thawing.
Before One Direction, The Wanted and Big Time Rush, one of the hottest boy bands in the music scene was none other than 98 Degrees.
Making their reunion official on August 17 with a special performance on ‘TODAY’, the boy group consisting of Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons treated fans to live renditions of ‘The Hardest Thing’, ‘Because of You’, ‘I Do’ and ‘Invisible Man.’ The concert, marked the group’s first television appearance in over 10 years.
“In the 10 years since our last performance as 98 Degrees we’ve each achieved personal success and grown as individuals, while remaining a close-knit family,” the band said in a press release in July. “We have also been fortunate to have the support and enduring love of our fans every step of the way. With so much to celebrate, this reunion is going to be one big party, so whether you tune in to the ‘Today Show’ or join us at the MixTape Festival, everyone’s invited.”
EEEEEE! How exciting is this? As a 90s child, a 98 Degrees reunion will certainly bring back some nostalgic feelings. Now if only N Sync would get back together…that would just be the cherry on top.
Watch them perform below!
One Direction (hubba hubba) stopped by the Today Show and revealed who the most romantic members of the band are. We also talk about a treasure chest prank (is it funny?) and watch a 13-year-old rapper whose hair is drawing comparisons to Justin Bieber.
One Direction stopped by the Today Show and revealed some very important information about who the most romantic member of the band is. I’m not all that surprised to hear it was a two way tie between Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, who both unfortunately have GFs. Both Harry Styles and Louis chose Liam as the most romantic, while Zayn Malik and Liam voted for Louis. As for the indecisive Niall, he said either one of them.
Award for shyest member of the band went to Zayn Malik (d’aw) and Harry Styles is not surprisingly the biggest attention-whore.
I don’t think interviewer Jenna Bush Hager realized how envious all the screaming girls outside were of her, though she did start blushing when the guys joked she was a cougar.
Best moment of the interview (other than outing the romantics of the group) was when the band demonstrated their poor dance moves, which included the fist pump and something they cleverly dubbed the sprinkler.
Watch it here:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, People magazine names Beyoncé the world’s most beautiful woman, and Harry Styles gets a new girlfriend while breaking teenage hearts along the way.
HIT: The Wanted kill it on the Today Show
To celebrate the American release of their album, the British boy band performed their smash hit, “I’m Glad You Came.” The boys kept it clean and didn’t talk about the song’s true meaning. Excuse me while I giggle while watching my other favourite dirty boy band songs, O-Town’s “Liquid Dreams” and B44’s “Get Down.”
MISS: Harry Styles caught kissing a model
Sorry ladies, Styles may have been taken off the market. Styles was caught smooching 18 year-old American model, Emma Orsilly in New Zealand last weekend. It could be worse — he may have contracted chlamydia from a koala.
HIT: Beyoncé named The World’s Most Beautiful Woman
People magazine have dubbed the singer as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2012. I can’t believe it took them this long to do it. Beyoncé is FLAWLESS.
MISS: Justin Bieber pens a song for his own “Billie Jean,” Mariah Yeater
The heartthrob told reporters in London his new album will include a song about Yeater, the 20 year-old who accused the Biebs of fathering her child late last year. The paternity case may have been thrown out, but expect a watered down version of “Billie Jean” in the upcoming months. Read more…
The ladies of the Today Show finally got their chance to face Joel McHale, who makes part of his living making fun of people like them on his show The Soup. Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb seemed genuinely annoyed by McHale, who was there to promote tonight’s new episode of Community.
The ladies called him out by rolling the very clips in which he makes jabs at their drinking. McHale even came prepared with a bottle of wine for them.
I don’t know if they were expecting and apology, but McHale firmly stood by his decision to mock their “drunken” antics while the ladies pretend to laugh with pained smiles on their face. Even if they’re secretly hurt, the ladies take it in stride.
After all, it’s all in good fun and it’s free publicity for their show… As for McHale, I think he really wanted to talk about Community but instead he was on the defensive for part of the interview.
A drunken Will Ferrell and Nick Offerman were interviewed for the early morning Today Show in bathrobes, while slurping Bloody Marys. Neither of them acknowledge their ultra-casual outfit when the hosts ask, but do mention with poker faces that they feel very comfortable.
They were both there to promote their new subtitled film “Casa de mi Padre,” which is entirely in Spanish. The film is about the Alvarez brothers who find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord. Although Ferrell doesn’t speak Spanish, he studied it and is pretty convincing.
During the interview, the actors joked that Offerman initially didn’t want to accept the role as the DEA Agent but that his wife sedated him and made him sign a contract for three foreign language films. The next will apparently be in German.
Good news for single ladies out there. In an interview with One Direction, 1075 The River slyly pried into the boys’ dating life and they revealed that Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Harry Styles are all single. They said they travel so much that they haven’t had any time to date.
If you’re interested though, stalking isn’t the best route to take. Harry Styles revealed to The Sun that there’s a girl who constantly messages them on Twitter and has been at every hotel room they’ve stayed at in America so far, trying to lure them out at night. Creepy! On the flip side, they revealed to The Today Show that their favourite thing about American girls is that they’re “loud.” They followed up by performing their song “One Thing.”
Watch it below:
I went to the bowling alley a couple weeks ago but I don’t think anyone cares. When 1D goes, it makes national headlines — especially when they’re rowdy. Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson were given warnings at a New York alley for hurling three bowling balls down one alley at a time. Although they thought it was hilarious the bowling alley engineer didn’t think so.
Finally, the One Direction gang just released a video for the Fall Tour.
Watch it below:
As we all know, Zac Efron has so much sex he needs to carry protection in his pocket at ALL times. Since we’re all so
suppressed obsessed with the “issue” Efron has been fielding questions from the media. This morning it was The Today Show.
Matt Lauer — who always asks the gritty questions — surprised The Lorax star with a question about the so-called Condomgate incident. You can tell Efron tried to laugh it off and is a bit embarrassed, but not so embarrassed as Lauer who can hardly ask the question without babbling.
Efron answered the question pretty well and called out Lauer for hardly being able to say the word “condom” without giggling. “You dropped a — a — condom.” Awkward!
Efron said the fact that he uses protection is a great message to add to the many other messages of the film. But really, come on guys! Is it really such a big deal?
Kanye West was scheduled to make an appearance on Today, but according to the rapper, that’s not going to happen. Kanye is upset about how the show portrayed him during an interview this past Wednesday and is officially backing out of the performance that was scheduled for later this month.
TMZ confirmed with a rep for Kanye that he won’t be appearing on their Black Friday show. Wednesday’s interview in question dealt with Kanye’s views of George W. Bush, an obvious sore spot for the rapper.
Like many other stars these days, Kanye took to Twitter to make his decision public.
“I’m not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons. I’m so happy the world got to see just a small piece of ‘the set up,’” Kanye tweeted.
Following that tweet, he went on one of his famous Twitter rants, which culminated with this gem, “All positive energy … all smiles. Much love to Matt and the whole Today Show. I accept ya’ll future apology in advance LOL!”
Do you support Kanye?
Will the Tiger Woods drama never end? It seems as though his string of newfound affairs certainly won’t.
Jamie Junger, one of Wood’s alleged lovers, is stepping forward to confront the media in order to combat rumors that she was one of the golfer’s escorts. The cocktail waitress appeared on the Today show to let the public know she is not part of a prostitution ring, even though her former employer is still insisting that she is!
According to perezhilton.com, Junger also appeared on Dateline to “make all these false rumors in the past.” After meeting Woods at a nightclub in 2005 that was hosting a charity event, the two ended up hitting it off in person, and also in bed. Apparently, she had an affair with Woods out of love, claiming that all she received in return from the married idol was a “broken heart.”
Andrew Shue, star of ’90s drama Melrose Place, is engaged to Today Show weekend co-anchor Amy Robach, reports E! News. The couple was set up by mutual friends last spring after each divorced from their significant others.
Shue, 42, has given up acting to work for his non-profit foundation Do Something. Robach, 36, is also a correspondent for NBC Nightly News.
