CNBC host and personal finance advice-giver Suze Orman celebrates the eighth anniversary of “The Suze Orman Show” tonight at 9pmET. Orman, who launched the call-in show in 2002. also appeared on CNN’s “Your $$$$$” today with Ali Velshi.
As much as she’s known for financial advice, the very expressive Orman also known for her colorful personality (and wardrobe), so here are eight amusing screen shots to mark the occasion, courtesy of TVEyes:
“The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Barabara Walters celebrate Behar’s new HLN show at the Plaza Hotel last night.
The famed Oak Room at New York’s Plaza Hotel was the setting for a party last night to celebrate the launch of HLN’s “The Joy Behar Show“, premiering Tuesday at 9pmET. The party, thrown by Behar’s “The View” co-host Barbara Walters, was packed with boldface names from news and entertainment and from all the networks.
In introducing Behar, Walters joked about her new show, “We originally thought it was going to go to Starr Jones. Then we were sure it was going to be Rosie [O'Donnell]. But finally, finally it is Joy.”
Behar thanked Walters and her “new boss” at HLN, CNN Worldwide EVP, Ken Jautz. “He found me. I was a poor little girl on a network show, trying to get a word in edgewise.”
Behar tells us she is a little nervous, but more excited about the new show. Her first guest, was Johnny Carson‘s last guest: Bette Midler.
Behar’s soon to be HLN colleagues were all there: Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchell and A.J. Hammer. CNN anchors Larry King, Anderson Cooper, T.J. Holmes, and Ali Velshi. CNN correspondents Alina Cho, Jason Carroll, Suzanne Malveaux (up from D.C. for U.N. week), and Jeanne Moos.
Behar’s “The View” co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg were on hand. From CNN and CBS News Erica Hill, and her Saturday “Early Show” co-anchor Chris Wragge and his WCBS co-anchor, and former MSNBC anchor, Kristine Johnson
We’d just arrived when guest Suze Orman began telling us her concern that there’s something fishy about losing her once-commanding lead our GMA co-anchor off. “It’s physically impossible to gain that much,” said Orman of the lead now held by Ashleigh Banfield.
• More pictures after the jump and Monday on TVNewser, an interview with Behar and Jautz…

With nearly 6,000 votes cast in round two, we have the Top 10 of the “Good Morning America” co-anchor-off. Suze Orman and Ashleigh Banfield shared the lead in round two, with each getting 20% of the vote.
So here’s round three. Among the Top 10, there are seven women and three men. Voting ends Sunday at Midnight, then it’s on to the Top 5. (I know, we’re milking it.)
After more than 4,500 votes among 38 candidates of our choosing and another 59 names written in by you (not including SpongeBob SquarePants, Bullwinkle J. Moose and Donald Duck, although he already works for Disney), we have the top 20 finalists for the TVNewser Good Morning America co-anchor-off.
One of the write-ins, Suze Orman, had enough votes to crack the Top 20.
So here’s round two. Voting ends Monday night at Midnight at which point we’ll go on to round three and the top 10 names.
• The NY Times Week in Review: “It’s an odd bit of a role reversal: Ms. Couric is a morning-show natural who had to tone down her peppy cadence and casual style to suit the formality of evening news programs, while Ms. Sawyer, born to be an evening anchor, spent much of her career twisting her natural elegance into the shape of slap-happy morning television. And Mr. Williams, who ascended to the position of NBC anchor on the shoulders of an old boys’ club, now has to reposition himself as a member of a persecuted minority, the white male anchorman.”
• Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “If anything, Ms. Sawyer’s promotion is just the maturation of a process that began years ago, when baby boomer women began entering television in larger numbers, and now, by virtue of age and changing public mores, are reaping the benefits.”
• Examiner.com (in the Real Cougar Lifestyle section: “…as she joins NBC’s Brian Williams and CBS’ Katie Couric in the top echelon of broadcast news, Sawyer faces the challenge of making her mark in a genre that has been in a steady decline. If anyone can turn that around Diane can.”
