There passive aggressive, there’s world class passive aggressive, and then there’s this compilation of clips featuring Philadelphia CBS3 news anchor (and former Miss Pennsylvania) Nicole Brewer and meteorologist Carol Erickson. It’s just … it’s on a whole different level. Most of the video is Brewer doing schtick straight out of Mean Girls — insinuating Erickson is a humorless diva, rolling her eyes, sighing, throwing little verbal jabs under her breath, etc. — and Erickson just taking it. But then, THEN, after a testy back and forth where Brewer said she could see Erickson pulling the whole “Don’t you know who I am?” routine, Erickson throws this haymaker around the 2:10 mark.
That was an interesting exchange that I’m sure she regrets … along with that last glass of whatever.
A meteorologist implying that her beauty queen coworker is either hungover or drunk at 6:45 in the morning, live, on-air? Oh, that is goooooooood television. If the bigwigs at CBS have any sense at all, they’ll give these two their own national daytime talk show. It would be like Kathie Lee and Hota, but 30x meaner. Would watch.
UPDATE: Apparently the haymaker I was so excited about was actually in reference to the Reese Witherspoon arrest fiasco from a few weeks ago. I have never been more disappointed in my entire life. I’m going to go cry now.
