Howard Stern Asks Megyn Kelly About Hot FNC Women, Salary, Breasts, Ailes’s Penis and More…

mk2.jpg Sirius’s Howard Stern and sidekick Robin Quivers grilled the hell out of FNC’s Megyn Kelly (formerly of the Washington D.C. bureau) on his show today.

They hit many, many topics including which women at FNC Kelly thinks are hot, her breasts (her husband calls them “Killer Bees”), she and her husband’s sex life (“we’ve never had a problem in that department”), the size of FNC President Roger Ailes‘s penis (she has no idea) and how she got hired.

Kelly stayed cool as a cucumber, no matter how raunchy Stern got.

Stern: You seem to be pretty conservative.
Kelly: I’m conservative on some things and I’m not on others. I love that people make these assumptions on things.

When FNC was in the stages of hiring her, Kelly thought she’d interviewed well and had the job in the bag. But the number 2 man in charge? Not so much. “I went up there for my interview and I thought it went great,” Kelly said. “The other guy, the guy below Roger, he goes, I think it’s a no. …I don’t think we’re interested. So I hang up the phone. Oh my god, I thought, for sure I didn’t get this job. Then he calls me back 10 minutes later. Well, Roger definitely wants you.”

Stern: Roger wants you.

Later Stern probed her on who she thinks is hottest (aside from herself).
Stern: Who’s your go to girl there? Who do you think is the hottest one?
Kelly: I’m a big fan of Julie Banderas. She’s a hot momma. …She’s a saucy vixen.

More importantly, Stern asked, what happens when a woman at FNC gets ugly?

Kelly joked that “they take you down the basement” and kick you out. …There’s nothing illegal about saying you’re ugly, you’re out. …It is different for some of the guys.”

Stern: How many pounds are you allowed to gain?
Robin: Is there a scale at the door?

Onto Kelly’s salary. “I really truly think Ailes is fair,” Kelly said, after Stern guessed $250,000 a year.
Stern: I’d love to know what you earn.
Kelly: I know you would. He’ll [Ailes] sue me if I tell you. I’m literally not allowed to tell you.

Morning Reading List 08.31.09

Good morning FishbowlDC! Got a blind item, interesting link, funny note, comment, birthday, anniversary or anything of the sort for Morning Reading List? Drop us a line.

What know and what we’re reading this Monday morning…



The Boston Globe printed an editorial Friday supporting appointing an interim replacement to Senator Kennedy’s vacant seat. The paper writes: “There is no mourning period when it comes to ensuring adequate representation for Massachusetts residents in the US Senate. Important votes on health care and climate change draw near. Surely the governor can find a temporary replacement whose views are consistent with those of Kennedy and the Massachusetts voters who kept faith with him since 1962.”

Just how far in advance do newspapers write obituaries? Slate has the answer here.

And on a lighter note, WUSA sports anchor Brett Haber will be penning a sports column for USA Today.

Freedom Communications, Inc., which owns the Orange County Register is expected to declare bankruptcy this week and news layoffs are apparently imminent at the San Francisco Chronicle.


CBS’ Bob Schieffer already knows what he’s doing May 21st, 2010… giving a commencement speech at the Rochester Institute of Technology in NY. The school year is only just starting and commencement seems far off, but the school must be proud- they’ve already sent out the press release.

Were you looking for Katie Couric during Senator Kennedy’s funeral coverage this weekend? She explains on Twitter that she dropped her daughter off at college for her freshman year.

Fox News’ Julie Banderas tied the knot.


HuffPost is on the move in DC again. The growing website has moved its bureau three times- from K St. to Dupont Circle, now finally settling on 17th and Pennsylvania Ave., right across the street from the White House (so Nico Pitney can just run over when he gets called for a question– we kid, we kid!)


A new “encyclopedia of journalism” is being released under the direction of GWU School of Media and Public Affairs professor Christopher Sterling. The encyclopedia will be a six-volume set of books covering print, broadcast, Internet journalism, U.S. and international perspectives, history, technology, legal issues and court cases, and ownership and economics.


CBS’ Cami McCormick, who was injured in Afghanistan last week, is in stable condition after undergoing successful surgeries. TVNewser has more.


Fox News’ Major Garrett took your questions from Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard.

ABC White House producer Karen Travers took on the very difficult task of taste testing Obama-ritas and Barack-My-World ice cream this week on Martha’s Vineyard. Check out her web piece here.
