Not everyone thinks Megyn Kelly is off to a rough daytime debut.
Namely, Today host Savannah Guthrie, who defended her NBC sister after a string of missteps haunted the premiere week of Megyn Kelly Today!
For those who haven’t been following, Kelly has been scrutinized for peppering her first week on the Today show with awkward gay jokes and probing interview questions — but if you ask Guthrie, the former Fox News journalist couldn’t be doing a better job.
On Thursday night’s Watch What Happens Live!, a caller wanted to know what the anchor thought of her colleague’s performance so far. Her review, of course, was nothing short of glowing. She said:
“I think it’s great. I think she’s got the eyes of the world upon her, and I think everybody can relate to how nerve-wracking that is. But I think she’s awesome.”
“I think she got a bad rap with that Jane Fonda thing, personally. I would have asked that question. I have asked that question.”
Guthrie admitted that even she was guilty of asking that question (maybe that’s why the actress is sick of talking about it?), adding:
“I think I’ve asked that question, too. You know, sometimes you ask questions in an interview├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥live TV, there’s awkward moments all the time.”
And we’re sure plenty more awkward moments are in store for us on Megyn Kelly Today!
Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to see the TV personalities defend their colleague.
