You'll want to tune in to see her on Lawrence RB. She's wearing a low neckline sundress. :wink:

She wasn't being coquettish this time, though. Maybe she's been getting some feedback about that. In fact I thought she was quite professional in her presentation. (I hope that does not make you cry, RB! :grin: )

I guess I missed the coquettish appearances. I haven't seen anything out of place--but I haven't seen every appearance. Who was she making goo goo eyes at? Not Ed. Definitely not Ezra. :grin:

Mostly it seemed to be happening with Lawrence, sometimes with Chris Hayes and Steve Kornacki.

I haven't caught her doing it, I only started paying closer attention after such behavior was mentioned by others.

A lot of times I'm listening to a show while working on something else.

I got a chuckle out of her when Lawrence said he didn't like his first name and she said words to the effect of "if anyone should want to renounce their first name here it would be me".

Someone tell him Laurence Olivier asked everyone he worked with to please call him Larry.

Maybe that will make him feel better about it.

I find her incredibly annoying. She may be bright and accomplished, but she loses all authority the minute she opens her mouth and speaks with that creaky voice and sorority girl accent. I agree with the posters upthread who are getting a little tired of the geeky schtick of some of the other younger hosts, but I'll take nerd over "Bachelor" contestant anytime.

Her voice is the ONLY thing I find objectionable about her. I looked hard for the flirty thing and can't seem to detect that.

She actually seems quite smart and knowledgeable. But the voice, yeah, that stylistic nasality is definitely off-putting. Time for a coach.
