And you know it’s bad when the publicist has to announce who’s walking down the red carpet. It’s like a bathroom break for the photographers. They’re cleaning their lenses. And they’re like, who?

  • No NatMo! Well I just watched my LAST episode of Access whether it's in the a.m., p.m., B.C. or A.D. Execs make the worst decisions. #accesslive
    And @accessonline, save your pathetically insincere tributes to @NMoralesNBC for the idiotic & the ignorant. NatMo fans are NOT happy! You probably just made the move to save a few bucks on her salary. But, remember fools, ya' get what you pay for.
    Natalie, your fans are upset about Access-I know I am. But then I think about how BIG your fan base is as a journalist, anchor & public personality. Your twitter followers rival the amount in numbers most TV/movie celebs can only hope for so you must be doing something right. Wait! I know. BEING YOURSELF seems to work well for you! @TODAYshow @NBCNews @NBCNewsPR
