Do Bloomberg Anchors Think They're Too Good For The Kind Of Journalism That Involves Taking One's Clothes Off?

One can't help but get that vibe as Margaret Brennan and her colleague discuss the group of female business journalism students who posed in lingerie for a calendar in honor of Vladmir Putin's 58th birthday, which features captions like "you put out the forest fire but I'm still burning." I can tell you one network that doesn't think it's too good for this "kind of journalism." The reason I know this is because I've seen an advanced copy of the shots being used to celebrate Alan Greenspan's 100th birthday. You haven't seen a Mr. September until you've seen a Mark Haines Mr. September, who follows the August sandwich that is Trish, Kudlow and Mandy (the Kudwich).

Ashley Dupré's New Career Involves Encouraging Customers To Put Clothes On

If it feels like it's been forever since we last heard from Eliot Spitzer's former gal-pal Ashley Dupré it's because it has. What's she been up to since July 2010, when she told reporters she was focusing on getting her real estate license and writing a dating column which sadly did not continue past its debut? Becoming a small business owner and shedding her old skin, which she'd appreciate if you didn't bring up in conversation. That (hooking) was then, this (being a New Jersey-based entrepreneur) is now. And while the new venture "represents a continuation of her evolution," rest assured "special underthings" and swimsuits will always have a place in her life. Four years after her high-priced hotel romps with Eliot Spitzer dynamited his tenure as governor of New York and made her infamous, Ashley Dupré says she turned a page Monday with the opening of Femme by Ashley, a lingerie and swimwear boutique on the choicest block in downtown Red Bank. The shop, Dupré told redbankgreen in an exclusive interview, “is almost like the beginning of the rest of my life...Petite and wearing eyeglasses that made her appear somewhat more studious than she did in Girls Gone Wild videos made a decade ago, 27-year-old Dupré said she agreed to redbankgreen‘s request for a sit-down only at the urging of her boyfriend, TJ Earle, who thought it was important in establishing community roots. She said it would likely be her only interview on the topic. “I’m just done with it,” Dupré said of her scandal-based persona. “I’m very private. People don’t believe that, but I’m a very private person. I don’t want that life. I’m not looking to be in the press. I’m just looking to get on with my life.” “I’m a girl, and I think every girl likes to shop and explore their tastes,” she said. “Getting into this business, I kind of explored all of these designers and fell in love with them.” The shop offers swimsuits in the $180 to $200 range as well as some “special” underthings, Dupré said.

Bloomberg TV Anchor Could Come Up With 'A Lot Of Good Jokes' About Getting Pissed On But Won't

This is a serious conversation about investing though, so please, continue what you were saying. Leave that kind of smut to the other networks. Interviewee: "There are basically two kinds of waterfalls, the American version and the European version." Interviewer: "I'm sure there are a lot of good jokes in here but I'll hold my tongue and let you keep going." Bob's Buzzword of the Day: `Waterfall' [Bloomberg TV]
