Holmes was set to do an entertainment update towards the end of KTLA’s morning news block, but she apparently got distracted by all of the donuts the station had backstage for National Donut Day (video above).

By now, Los Angeles viewers must be used to seeing the KTLA morning team doing crazy things on-air: throwing a fit, making fun of an intern, hanging out with Hooters Girls, dressing up as Cupid. And now “getting an impromptu haircut” can be added to the list.
KTLA invited a couple of Hooters girls to be a part of the station’s morning newscast on Wednesday.
Meteorologist Henry DiCarlo introduced the girls, who are set to compete in a local swimsuit competition, during the 6 o’clock hour, as anchors Megan Henderson and Chris Schauble snacked on wings from the restaurant. Later in the show, the girls stripped down to their swimsuits and joined weathercaster Mark Kriski as he promoted their competition.
This isn’t the first time KTLA has invited scantily clad women onto its morning show. During February sweeps, the station had lingerie models on to accompany DiCarlo for a weather update.
KTLA began its morning show on Thursday without one of its anchors.
Henderson explained that someone had screwed up and told her “two minutes, ten seconds ago.” It was an excuse that Schauble and meteorologist Henry DiCarlo weren’t totally buying (video above).
Facing an onslaught of media coverage after Henry DiCarlo‘s “fit” went viral earlier this week, the KTLA meteorologist and his producer addressed his behavior on yesterday’s morning newscast. DiCarlo joked he was hungry and he hadn’t had any coffee, and said “all kinds of things were going on” in his life at that moment, before walking it back to an almost-apology:
DiCarlo: It doesn’t matter what the circumstances were. It wasn’t a pretty sight for me to act like that. And I get that. But personally — you guys have seen much worse from me. So I don’t think it was that bad.
KTLA anchor Megan Henderson: If you’re a regular watcher of our show, especially during those hours, this happens on a daily basis. Maybe to that extent, but it is kind of — it’s a little bit of our shtick.
“When you send a weatherman out to do the weather, but you’re also sending him to do a story, you might want to give him a little extra time,” DiCarlo said testily upon finding out there wasn’t time for the forecast (watch above). “But that’s just me.”
In an apparent effort to rid the world of future Shake Weight jokes by cramming as many as possible into its morning newscast, KTLA ran two segments about the new-ish fitness device last Friday, reveling in the suggestive motion that the motorized barbell makes.
With the 6 o’clock hour’s second segment, the crew’s jokes became more and more bawdy. At one point, weathercaster Mark Kriski asked reporter Allie MacKay, “I’ve got a small, white one, does that make a difference?” Without missing a beat, MacKay shot back, “I don’t think it’s the size of it, it’s actually the technique” (video above).
While Chris Schauble, who recently joined KTLA, enthusiastically used a Shake Weight at the anchor desk, his co-anchor Megan Henderson couldn’t be coaxed into making the device’s up-and-down motion, predicting (correctly) that the segments would quickly land them on YouTube. First segment inside… Read more
