‘What Is Wrong With You?’: Morning Anchor Scolded for Ogling Reporter’s Body
This is apparently what happens when you make a morning show correspondent deliver a live report wearing a bikini. When local Fox reporter Anna Gilligan went to New Jersey’s Action Park to try out the new Tarzan rope swing, she got more than she bargained for in the form of some inappropriate comments from Good Day New York anchor Greg Kelly.
“I don’t know which is scarier, the ride of taking off my clothes,” Gilligan said before taking the plunge. When she emerged on the other side, dripping wet and struggling to get her earpiece in to keep reporting, she had the privilege of hearing Kelly say, “nice bathing suit.” He then began asking her why she was so out of breath.
Kelly’s co-anchor, Rosanna Scotto, did her best to keep him “in check,” urging him to “stay appropriate.” When Gilligan tried to end her segment by saying she was going to put some clothes on, Kelly stopped her, saying, “hold on a second, not so fast, Anna!”
“What is wrong with you?” Scotto asked, when they finally cut back to the studio, giving Kelly a look of disapproval.
“Don’t be so frowning at me,” Kelly said in response.
You may remember that the last time Kelly, who is the son of former NYPD police commissioner Ray Kelly, was in the news, it was because there was a rape allegation against him. Ultimately, the district attorney decided to drop the charges.
