Al Roker was probably pissed off that he had to interview the wastes of space Heidi and Spencer Pratt. Which is why he felt the need to eviscerate them on the Today show. He called them “the poster children for everything that is wrong with celebrity in this country.” He gave up caring 30 seconds into the interview. The exact moment is marked by the big sigh he gives.
Roker then kept trying to get Spencer to admit he’s a douchebag and then talked to Heidi like she was a little girl asking her questions like, “Are you proud of yourself?” Heidi, who probably isn’t, said she wasn’t ashamed.
After the interview, Heidi ran to Ryan Seacrest whining about how Al Roker personally attacked her on live TV and said he might be abusive towards women.
“I was shocked at how rude he was – I was crying afterwards because I couldn’t believe I felt personally attacked … I wanted to say to him, do you feel proud of how you’re talking to me right now? I’m just a young woman and you’re coming at me so aggressively and meanly [sic] and mean-spirited.”
“I just wanted to talk about the show and my experience there and how fun it was, and he just made it a very uncomfortable and awful experience … I really would advise women especially to be careful around him because I feel like he definitely came and attacked me and I did not appreciate that at all.”
Al Roker, in the meantime, went on Twitter and in 140 characters or less, wrote:
Heidi and Spencer are an interesting couple. famous for…being infamous. Bad and vacuous behavior. I think we’re at minute 11 of their 15.
At least this is better than the interview I would have given. Mine would just be me sitting down, smiling at Spencer and then punching him in the face. Of course, I’d apologize right after because I had forgotten to ask Spencer my question, “May I punch you in the face?” In my defense, he would have probably said no.
