8. There were a few times Gelman openly cringed/winced at some of Kelly's jokes and fake laughed loudly to get the audience to laugh. She is really not funny.
9. When Kelly mentioned Scott Baio talking about his Christmas trees, the staff tried to get her to stop talking about it because the segment hadn't aired yet. It didn't work and she kept talking.
Very interesting. I have recently thought that as much as I think Kelly likes Michael, and is happy he is there to save this mess, so she can go back to doing mot much of anything- I think she is now getting a bit insecure about him, and the fact that he has a large fan base, and it seems like the staff and audience react more positively to him than they do to Kelly.
I think at times she is so obnoxious, interrupting his stories, and needing to repeat her stories she has told over and over, like an insecure child who wants attention. Yesterday, Michael started talking about the Victoria's Secret show, and before he could really talk, we had to hear about Kelly and her story with Gisell Bunchen, and how she was fat when she was pregnant. blah blah blah. How many times have we heard how huge she was?
Then Michael was going to talk about his dinner at a restaurant, and Kelly repeated a story about how Howie Mandel paid for her dinner.
I don't think there is anything wrong with her telling a story related to what Michael does, but she was rude IMO, interrupted and took over.
I really am wondering if little insecure Kelly, can't handle the fact that Michael is a better host, is just naturally nice, and likable, and actually does do things, and can interview, so he is a better host IMO.
It is interesting that Gelman is cringing, and Kelly doesn't even take a cue not to talk about an interview that has not aired yet. IMO she is desperate to hold onto her "star" title, but Michael is actually more of the star, in spite of the fact that he has second billing, and makes less than half of her salary.
