Yes, Admiring Attractive Female TV Personalities Doesn't Constitute a Crime


I've watched a lot of Julie Watts on KPIX and I must admit, I like what I see. Yeah, what's not to like. (Hold the anti-feminist venom--she's smart as a whip and looks great. TV is a visual medium. There.)

She's probably the only combo consumer reporter and meteorologist too.

But back to the topic at hand: Is it wrong to compliment and admire a  pretty female TV talent? I don't think so. I think just because you're hot doesn't necessarily mean your a dimbulb. Case in point, Carolyn Johnson and Ann Notarangelo.

Let's not leave out Christina Loren.

These all all capable, smart, intelligent, attractive BayArea TV personalities who are women journalists and I appreciate their work and approve of this message.

  1. Julie has been under the radar for a while...I knew she had it,but took some time to post about her. She's not on air much. She seems more power blond anchor type then reporter..but not my call-lol.
    I was admiring the young Indian woman Janu Arasu on ch 4 weekend weather..she's lost a lot of weight..very narrow waist. Sorry that she gets clubbed on the internet. I like her.

    Christina?..no pretense she doesn't know what butters her bread,pays the bills,keeps her top girl. She had on a micro so short the other day,even the camera HAD to show leg. And what great legs they are.
    On the internet they have your column Rich from June of last year of "rated underrated,overrated" Some changes since then..might be fun to try again or revisit the topic.

    1. I give a nod to Marla Tallez on KNTV...but, TV still avoids the smoking hot and curvy Telemundo types.. The first GM to hire that on English TV gets a Pulitzer.

  7. It's a shame people have to judge women TV anchors based on their
    'hotness.' How about if someone is actually a true journalist, has some skills and journalistic integrity and is not just 'eye candy?' I guess that's expecting too much to ask from today's sexually repressed American male who needs to grow up!

    1. Take comfort in the fact these childish men aren't all gay. If Rich starts talking about his "guns" I'm outta here.

      Otherwise enjoy Edie Lambert on KCRA, Sacramento. A warm unpretentious woman with a compelling smile. I'll take her any day over the Bay Area glamour girls.

  13. Jackie Bennett on KRON is the prettiest. Hands down. Leigh Glaser, Alejandra Cerball, Erica Kato, and Jessica Aguirre all get my honorable mention.

  14. Darya does it for me. I like them "provocative"

  15. Again guys...why don't you all sit down in the bar and compare among yourselves who you think "is the hottest." But what I'd really like to see is a bunch of women judge how good looking you guys are!
    NOT!

    1. I'm pretty good looking.

    2. Did you notice that 6:57 is getting paunchy? And what about that receding hair line on 4:39? LOL! Buffed they are not! OTOH, 1:12 has a pair of divine pecs. But they are all loser wannabes and no woman in her right mind would spend 10 seconds in conversation with them.

      Delete
  16. So many attractive ladies on local news. I agree with 6:57. There is something about Darya that I find super sexy. Jacqueline Bennett is awesome, beauty and brains. Also very attractive in no particular order in my opinion are Erica Kato, Janu Arasu Christina Loren, Marla Telez.

  17. It's odd, obviously attractiveness is big in TV, but I've heard of women reporters who lost gigs because they turned off female viewers BECAUSE they were so attractive.

  18. How can you leave Dana King out of this conversation? The single most extraordinary combination of talent, wit, brains and beauty?

    1. Dana King is annoying. Put Watts on her chair and give King her own dopey show on sunday mornings @ 5am.
      Marla Telez is in the same boat as Watts....capable, adorable, and under rated. If capable, and they both are, their looks shouldn't be a liability. Sure, frumpy old broads have an axe to grind, but they'll be miserable regardless of ...well, just about anything.

      Delete
    2. Dana King "annoying?" I guess it makes sense that anybody who uses the word "adorable" to describe a newscaster would indeed find Dana King annoying...

      Delete
  19. Dana King, FTW. Especially since she let her hair go natural. Now, someone will pipe up and say "No, its colored. Some high paid consultant said to do it." To which I'll say unlikely.

  20. Satrt my day by watching Robin Meade every morning on headline news. Good looking, funny and yet very professional. Beats all the dull local anchors.

  21. My favorites are Marla Tellez, Gasia, and Erica Kato. All seem sweet and are capable. Have that exotic look.

  22. To the poster who mentioned janu.. You know you see those lips and nothing else. Matter of factly, she is not capable and simply got the job because she dated the GM. She is completely sloppy, a drunkard, and as dumb and dumb as a bag of rocks. Its safe to leave her out of this conversation before she gets exposed for what she is...

    1. Sounds like someone got turned down for a date with Janu.
      I like watching Janelle Wang, Ama Daetz and Carolyn Johnson.

  23. Hey...I'm a 57 year old caucasian male with real 'man-boobs' and they're no 'store bought' like the racks on some of these news anchor gals!

    I always tell everyone to to "feast your eyes on these baby and green with envy, because these are the real deal, they're not fake!"

    How come I can't get a TV anchor job?

  24. Elizabeth Wenger+ tight pants = Camel-toe this morning. In her prime breeder form.

  25. Julie Watts is still too big. She still has gargantuan hips, and although she has improved in her looks since losing so much weight, she still has a long way to go. By the way, as another poster here said, you can tell that Julie "loves herself". She thinks she is Ms "It", but she isn't. I can't believe that nobody has mentioned the absolutely totally hot Cate Cauguiran! I mean, stand her up next to your favorite Julie Watts, and then see who is the REAL hottie! Cate wins hands down!

      Why is Vicki Liviakis always omitted?
      She's seductive, a fashionista, smart and
      experienced. Put her on any other network
      and she would put all the "babes" to shame.

  26. I'm surprisd no one has mentioned Ama Daetz yet

  27. Rich,

    You made a comment in this bit that I've been wanting to ask you about for a long time: "She's probably the only combo consumer reporter and meteorologist too." No knock to Julie, I agree 100% with your comments. However, what is up at KPIX. I used to watch it to meaningful info from a meteorologist or traffic person. Now at KPIX they are all doing everything, it's like watching a roulette table. Place you bets, Place your bets..who's doing what today? They've lost credibility.

  28. Julie Watts looks much older than what she is. Also, the attitude she has on air? Unbelievable. Janu is a total spaz on the air- no one I know can tolerate her. What is the story about her schtupping the boss? Curious minds want to know

    ReplyDelete
  29. Who cares about Julie Watts! How about my natural 'man boobs' that aren't store bought? Why can't they get me an anchor job!

  32. Interesting to note that Rich has reverted to selective editing by suppressing comments about the values reflected by blog items that reduce female professionals to a collection of body parts.

    Rich, please explain again why you censor posts that are neither obscene, nor bad taste, but simply diverge from your own view point. I feel like it's dishonest for you to selectively edit posts in that way.

    If you are going to selectively exclude posts that are non-offensive in the typical sense of being objectionable except that you disagree with what is being said, please make it clear that this is what you are doing.

    Otherwise you are creating the mistaken impression that you are presenting an open dialog.

      Why are you so silent? You make a solid point about the self proclaimed media icon's "selective editorializing" and you pull a "Casper" i.e. the friendly ghost.

  34. Rich, you have horrible taste. Let us viewers decide who is hottest.

    KTVU: Gasia M and Heather Holmes
    KGO: Kristen Sze and Sandya Patel
    KRON: Vicki Liviakis and Erica Kato
    KPIX: Elizabeth Cooke and.. that's it. No one attractive @ 5.
    KNTV: Janelle Wang and erm... again that may be it for them.

      You are on the mark! I can't believe Vicki Liviakis'
      name isn't mentioned in all the attractive, hot or whatever polls Rich puts together.
      I'm beginning to think Rich has a "thing" for Vicki
      and he jealous of any attention sent her way.

  35. So, Rich, I'm thinking this might be a good time to see a full-body photo of you. I suggest this because I'm having a problem believing you think Julie W and Ann N are attractive. Maybe it's a relative thing?

  36. Ann Notarangelo has always been in that Kate Kelley league. But,I suspect she's into the "other team". Sorry dudes.
    Cmon Rich..post it..you know its probably true.
    And if she says no?..Men in some ways will be disappointed. Beautiful woman cant lose either way with men.

  37. Ladies and Gentlemen,
    The earlier post regarding Rich's "selective editing"
    is right on the mark.
    Rich, the self professed media star of the bay area is
    total bs.
    Rich is probably a loner who gets off on these ridiculous
    polls about the "hotest" bay area anchors. I sent Rich
    a list of the most attractive bay area anchors (each network was represented) based on my small poll. What does Rich do with
    the list? Nothing! So now it becomes quite clear that Rich is selectively posting his own "lusty" ideas instead of those of his readers. Rich you are poor editor and a poster child for
    self centered journalism.
    Readers speak out.

      Do honestly think Rich is above critique? I don't know where you come ( you sound like some ignorant hillbilly with no teeth) but we are on the west coast not the Ozarks.
      Rich has a great reputation even among the media folks but he is not above reproach. Fact is alot of his bull shit is intended to keep up with his self proclaimed bay area icon image.
      Get my back readers. Rich's selective editorializing
      has got to go.
