We know we heap a fair amount of abuse on Fox. Mostly, though, that’s just for their “fair and balanced” news coverage and their angry ranty political talk shows. When their cheery sparkly morning show comes calling, however, we just can’t say no. Because there’s nothing like dishing dating advice in front of a live audience who are being goaded into yelling “Kiss!” or “Dismiss!” so loudly that they probably can’t hear all that oh-so-sage advice anyway. Oh, yeah, and we’re total publicity whores to boot. Hey, it’s the recession, folks. Will you still respect us in the morning? (Answers in the form of “Kiss!” or “Dismiss!” only please.)
Okay, now that the disclaimer’s out of the way, click here to check out Em on “The Mike and Juliet Show” in a segment called “What’s Normal When It Comes to Dating?” (and here’s part two). Her fellow guest is one of our favorite sex experts Ian Kerner — unfortunately the producers decided there wasn’t room on the couch for Ian and Em and Lo. Fortunately, though, we agree on pretty much everything except baby talk, and that topic didn’t come up on Monday. Topics that did come up include a romantic solution to going dutch on dates; when to use the “girlfriend” word; what’s TMI when it comes to sharing with your friends…and your mom; and what to do if your boyf frowns upon ladies night (you’ve got to fight for your right to party, clearly). Stay tuned for the text version of the questions we didn’t get to in the next post.
And yes, we’re as disappointed as you are that the gentleman in the photo with the grey pompadour didn’t get to ask his “is it normal?” dating question.
