In a rare moment of insanity, FNC decided not to renew the contract of the incredibly gorgeous Kiran Chetry. Kiran, a luscious, leggy blend of Ukrainian and Nepalese ethnicities and wife of FNC's meteorologist Chris Knowles, has been the elegant, eloquent eye candy for Fox & Friends First and Fox & Friends Weekend. CNN snared Maxim's 2006 third sexiest news anchor when, allegedly, Fox News unceremoniously ended new contract talks with Kiran's agent, John Ferriter of the William Morris Agency, Inc., which it claimed had demanded that Kiran take over Gretchen Carlson's role as anchor on the regular Fox and Friends. Another source indicated that Chetry had merely requested a written clarification as to whether she would serve as a Fox & Friends co-host and when. Knowing Kiran, the latter explanation seems obviously the more plausible. CNN's fortunes are looking up! She is currently acting as substitute host on CNN's American Morning at 5:00 a.m. CT. I guess that I will have to get a new TiVo season pass.
