Talk The Talk

"The only possible form of exercise is to talk, not to walk." ~~Oscar Wilde





Last week, Clay played talk show host when he appeared on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet. His last foray into talk show hostdom didn't end very well since Ms Ripa chose to blow the "hand-over-mouth" incident out of all proportion. This time Clay was hosting with two people who genuinely seemed to like and respect him. In fact, Juliet seemed very comfortable with Clay, calling him Bud, Aiken, and Babe several times. She mentioned twice that Clay can come back and host with her when Mike is away. For her reward, she got a nice hug out the deal. Not bad. Mr. Aiken does know how to give a nice bear hug. Not a bad way to end a successful hosting gig. Mike was also very complementary toward Clay calling him "a natural". Clay did make it appear that he had been doing the job for years. I doubt most people would know he was a beginner. He seemed more secure than when he co-hosted Live with Regis and Kelly. I am sure his co-hosts set the stage for a rewarding experience for all. There were no nasty digs, no hogging the camera, no not letting the co-host get a word in edgewise. If this was some sort of audition, I think Clay must have passed with flying colors thanks to both Mike and Juliet.

Here are some of the highlights from the show for me:
  • Wore a yummy tan coat for the outside segments.
  • Handled the "Ripa incident" with class and humor when Mike brought it up.
  • Loved the interaction with Mike and Juliet, especially Juliet.
  • Loved that UNICEF was brought up and we found out there would be a trip in April
  • Loved the camouflage ... Where did the box go?" bit!
  • Love the thong interaction with Juliet and the "Be careful. This is live TV" from Clay.
  • Loved the intelligent way Clay interacted with the guests during the Anna Nicole segment. He was both smart, serious, and funny...a heady combination.
  • His teeth looked great. *g*
  • Loved seeing Mr. Aiken on my TV for an hour.

    EE,

    We fans know that Clay can "talk the talk" AND "walk the walk." Your presentation and overview of his Morning Show co-hosting experience demonstrate just that. Plus it was fun to watch!

    Have a great day!
