Savannah Guthrie’s Baby to Receive the Non-Stop Coverage America Deserves

Oh joy! Just like in that dream we had that one time, ex-DC journo Savannah Guthrie is starting a blog dedicated to her yet-unborn child! The charmingly alliterative “bouncing baby blog”¬†will feature extensive coverage of Savannah’s abdomen, and -once the baby has grown some thumbs -live Tweets from inside her uterus.*

No word yet on whether NBC intends to live-stream the birth itself -though a birdy tells us they are considering adding a special fifth AND sixth hour of the “Today Show” to cover the final month of her pregnancy.

Other possible baby-centric features under discussion by “Today” producers:

1) A “Mocktail of the Day” segment with Kathy Lee and Hoda aimed at pregnant women who don’t want to be left out on Ladies Night. Kathy Lee and Hoda will drink regular cocktails.

2) A contest open to the public and hosted by Carson Daly to choose the baby’s middle name.

3) Appearances by guest bloggers Prince George of England, North West, and Carmen Gabriela Baldwin.

4) A special late night airing of the conception video.

*This, and most everything else in this post, is entirely made up. The baby blog is real though -find out for yourself.

Spotted: Maureen Orth in Nantucket

On Thursday afternoon Vanity Fair‘s Maureen Orth, mother of NBC’s Luke Russert, was spotted buying Sunflowers at Moors Farm in Nantucket. She was wearing bright red pants and a blue and white striped nautical shirt. She drove a green jeep with a Buffalo Bills bumper sticker on the back.

Our spy tells us she had a pretty adorable pug in tow: “Her dog jumped out of the jeep and was wandering around, with his leash on, and very cute.”

Nantucket is a huge NBC haven. Bob Wright, chairman of NBC Universal, has a place here, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough was on the cover of N Magazine last summer, Kathy Lee Gifford has a house here, as do a lot of NBC execs. FNC may be invading though. Greta Van Susteren now has a place and a boat in Nantucket. She was spotted at Osana’s auction last Saturday.
Correction: We previously reported that Van Susteren had sold her boat. Not true! Our sources were apparently hallucinating on that one. It’s alive and well and in Nantucket. Picture above.
