Sue’s Morning Stretch: Alex Trebek, he’s no Notorious B.I.G.

SHARE Sue’s Morning Stretch: Alex Trebek, he’s no Notorious B.I.G.

“Good Day Chicago” ran a clip from “Jeopardy” yesterday where someone on staff thought it was a good idea for host Alex Trebek to rap answers in a category on rap artists. Pretty funny listening to the always formal (or do you say stiff?) Trebek repeat the words of Dr. Dre.

Also noticed on morning TV talk shows:

“Good Morning America” gave a behind-the-scenes look at the wedding of “Big Bang Theory”  star Kaley Cuoco. While you probably already know she wore a pink gown (great color, much better than white for most skin tones; more brides should choose it), you might not have heard she had stilt walkers to entertain the 150 guests. And an upside-down chandelier cake.

“GMA” kept my interest because Jessica Simpson was on, giving her first live interview since having her second child, son Ace. Simpson, a paid spokesperson for Weight Watchers, looks good and of course credits WW. But she was candid that she had been on a lot of wacky diets and WW, which has you eating real food (but in smaller portions) worked for her. She also doesn’t want to obsess over weight. She’s done with wacky, starve yourself diets. Lot of the reason she is trying to be her healthiest self is for her older daughter, Maxwell. “I don’t want to give Maxwell a false perception of what is real and important.”

OK, last thing from “GMA.” Calumet City native Mary Matalin was on, with husband James Carville, talking about their new book, “Love & War.” Said the reason she changes her hair so much is she went to cosmetology school! And she’d just cut her hair that morning (she gets bored, looks in the mirror and starts snipping away).  Wish I could do that.
