Storm Brewing at KTVU News; Cat Fights Between Heather Holmes and Alyana Gomez; 'The Four' Anchor Chick Drama

 THEY ARE HAVING CAT FIGHTS at Fox2...of course, off the air but there's a storm brewing...between KTVU's stalwart anchor, Heather Holmes and newbie, Alyana Gomez.

This all-out war (and it is) comes as both divas host "The Four" --so as the teleprompter lights up, they tend to frown out. Quietly.

Holmes, who's been yanked all over KTVU's various time slots and platforms feels up-and-coming Gomez is getting a lot of attention from management --and truth be told, she is. With good reason, she's pretty damn solid.

Moreover, Gomez makes a lot,-- a lot, less money than Holmes and given Fox's ongoing "cut the salaries" of big pay people, that's a big time threat to Holmes. Poor baby.

I've said a million time I don't get the allure of Holmes. She's a less-than-mediocre news reader who has no magic behind the camera and dresses as if she's off to a midnight soiree at the Fairmont. That's fine and dandy if you have any semblance of portraying a serious news anchor. Holmes doesn't register on the "it" meter for me and has, apparently, a far more appealing version of herself than does management.

That she continues to bark about newer, younger, (and yes, cheaper) colleagues speaks volumes about Heather. Welcome to the new world of media, HH.

  1. Gomez is FINE and she acts like an anchor (young up and coming - not seasoned yet ) when delivering the news. Heather Holmes... meh

    1. One is more likely to bring a knife. The other, mascara.

  3. Heather brings a little class and beauty to KTVU. You don't "get it" because you're "Low Class" Lieberman.

    1. You deem wearing animal prints and snotgate high class?

  4. During Christmas week it was very refreshing to see Ms Gomez instead of Ms Holmes. No drama, lots of poise and good delivery. She has good chemistry with her co-anchors and indeed was great recently co-anchoring alongside Julie Haener. You could tell Holmes was going for the jugular the first day back from vacation with her tight black outfit. If I had to choose I'd vote for Ms Gomez.

  5. I prefer Heather Holmes, which is the only reason I watch KTVU. Otherwise I prefer KNTV. Just personal taste.

    1. Alyana Gomez talks too fast. Heather Holmes talks like an anchor on air (I think)

      Delete
    2. Agreed 110%. If I wanted to see Gomez I'd turn on any other local channel.

    3. Alyana Gomez just might take Claudines spot in the FOXHOUSE. Gomez is the future of KTVU.

  6. I wouldn't say better. She seems to be an even more languid Ama Daetz. Like,she see's the bay area digs that..so she has something to model after.
    She needs more experience,not quite top chick anchor at a fox station look ..yet.

  7. This past Monday Heather was dressed in a Black "Cold Shoulder" Dress...Definitely something a Woman would wear out to a Night Club, or a Dinner Date with her Husband/BF. Not Professional at all, Imvho.

    1. Have you guys seen what Marla Tellez wears now at FOX11 in LA? Hint: sexy dresses from Bebe. Or Lauren Sivan or Maria Sansone? Or most female news folks in SoCal.

    2. That was her first day back. She wore that to make a statement and draw a line in the sand. Meow!

    3. I thought I was the only one to notice that. You're in a business, dress like your in a business. Then again I am old.

      Delete
    4. They do dress like they're in a business. That business is to catch your eye. Like if you were walking down the sidewalk looking for a date, if you know what I mean.

    5. Let the single mom show off the goods. Heather is just advertising that she's still available in the market.

  8. If there is an actual catfight I would hope both ladies would be thoughtful enough to stream it on Facebook Live.

  9. Alyana is the first young hire on any station that I really respect. Natural solid delivery and looks professional. She doesn't have that awful phony news anchor delivery. Holmes broke out the animal print the other night and I just turned the station. She's really not ready for day or prime time.

    1. Agreed with everything you say. But management will probably try to screw Gomez up, and pretty soon she'll be tweeting and taking selfies and acting chirpy all the time. Sad what that station does to you. If Frank S really cared about "making the world a better place" as he claims he does he'd quit his $400,000 job and become a Peace Corps worker.

  10. If Holmes was "all that," she should try her hand in a bigger market like L.A.

    But, I think she's smart enough to realize that she's better off as a big fish in a small pond, rather than small fish in a big pond.

    Pretty blondes are a dime a dozen down there, and she wouldn't register like she does here.

    1. You are right, the Bay Area is full of ethnic anchors, Indian, Asian, Hispanic, African-American, and mixed racials. Sometimes it is nice to see a pretty blonde. A sexy dressing one at that!

  11. We shall see if Holmes' intimidation tactics make management blink. Otherwise, the FOX-ified 2 might actually do the right thing and expand the increasingly respected Gomez's role. Stay tuned.

  12. Who has the least gimmicky newscast? Right now I'd say NBC Bay Area but they also are probably the most boring as well. I still say KRON is at the bottom while KTVU, KGO, AND KPIX are all similarly mediocre

  13. I am really curious to know which one will come out on top and which will come out on bottom. My belief is that Heather will come out in front.

    Thanks Rich for the entertainment. My brother gave me a 415 donation receipt at our familys christmas eve present swap. I explained it was sometbing i enjoy reading a few times a week. Good luck in 2017.

  14. Newbie Gomez blows Holmes away. Completely agree that the latter has zero--she's emptiness in high heels and animal prints. I'd be scared too.

  15. I have dreams of both of them. Together. At once

  16. Sorry to tell you, that wasn't a dream you had. They were actually on air together the other day.

  17. Good riddance Heather, the absolute worst reader of news I have ever seen.

    I am so tired of that look at me look at me posing and her total inability to ad lib anything except the words yea yea.
