Jillian Michaels, 44, got a ton of backlash for her criticism of the keto diet. Al Roker called the fitness trainer a bully. Andy Cohen, who previously called the diet "dumb," said Jillian is a "bad idea."Earlier this week, Jillian Michaels, 44, slammed the keto diet in a video for Women's Health. "You’re starving your cells," she said in the video. Instead, she urged using "common sense" when you’re eating—avoiding processed sugars and grains, sticking to whole foods, and eating lots of veggies. But now, celebrity fans of the keto diet are firing back. Al Roker, who's said on TODAY that he's been on the diet since September, tweeted at the former Biggest Loser coach with some choice words. "So @JillianMIchaels, says #Keto is a bad idea," Al wrote. "This from a woman who promoted on camera bullying, deprivation, manipulation and more weekly in the name of weight loss.

As you know, the National Climate Change Assessment report is out. I'm actually rather overwhelmed with it all. It is a turning point by way of full acknowledgment of the importance of climate change and the need to act. Good for you, government of the United States! One small item has crossed my desk this morning tangential to the assessment but so deliciously hilarious that I did not want to let it pass without comment. Part of the roll out of the assessment will involve President Obama speaking with meteorologists across the country. Friend of mine made the remark that Fox News wanted the meteorologists to ask Obama about Benghazi. I assumed he was joking. But, he was not joking: Fox Host Wants TV Meteorologists To Ask Obama About Benghazi Today (VIDEO) Personally, I think it is wonderful that FOX wants Al Roker to ask President Obama about Benghazi. I hope he does. They can have a laugh about it. Except it won't be funny. "How's the weather in Benghazi, Mr. President?" … [Read more...] about Al Roker better ask President Obama about Benghazi!
"Today" show meteorologist and co-host Al Roker found himself explaining to some confused viewers exactly what blackface means, following criticism over his Halloween costume choice in the wake of Megyn Kelly's scandal. Last week, NBC canceled her show "Megyn Kelly Today" after she defended the use of blackface as part of Halloween costumes, in a segment on her program. Hours earlier, the "Today" show co-hosts condemned her remarks, with Roker being one of her harshest critics. On Wednesday, Halloween, the group appeared on the air in '80s-inspired costumes. Roker dressed up as "Back to the Future" character Doc Brown, played by white actor Christopher Lloyd in the 1985 film. Some people commented online that Roker's choice of costume--and the 'Today' show's celebration of it--made him a hypocrite and constituted a double standard. TV Hosts Dress Up for Halloween 2018 Diane Lane chats with Seth Meyers about what it was like to film the latest “House of Cards” season and … [Read more...] about ‘Just Don’t Color Your Skin’: Al Roker Explains Halloween Costume After Megyn Kelly Scandal
A California boy who's been fascinated with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for years, and has become something of a parade prodigy, got the shock of his life when his parents surprised him on his birthday with a special announcement -- and it was all captured on video. Alex Harris has been obsessed with the parade since watching it for the first time as a 4-year-old boy back in 2012. His mother says she had no idea her son was about to become the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade’s biggest fan. “It was something for the kids to do so that they would stay out of the kitchen,” Christina Harris told News 4 New York over the phone. Now 10, Alex knows everything there is to know about the parade: he’s read books about the event’s history and watched old videos from years past on YouTube, his mom says. Every year, he closely follows the announcements of who will be performing and what balloons will be making their big debut. Alex even re-enacts the … [Read more...] about Boy Who Loves Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Gets Surprise of His Life
