Sarah Palin appeared as a guest host on The Today Show this morning, and prior to that, she sat down with Matt Lauer for a lengthy interview. The former Vice Presidential candidate chatted about a variety of topics, ranging from her disapproval of Obama to celebrities, including Jessica Simpson and Tina Fey, who has impersonated Palin numerous times over the years. Julianne Moore also portrays Palin in Game Change, and while Palin didn't watch the HBO film, she did note that "Tina Fey has been pretty clever."

The discussion then turned to Simpson's pregnancy weight gain, and Palin remarked that if she had been criticized for gaining so much weight while she was pregnant, she'd have punched the offender in the neck. She also added that Hollywood's depiction of skinny women creates an unrealistic body ideal. "You know, it would be nice if the marketplace would demand that some of these reality shows would start portraying some healthy, independent young women who are striving for a strong work ethic, doing the antithesis of so many things that we're seeing portrayed in reality shows today," she said.

Sarah Palin To Co-Host Monday's Today Show

Apr 1, 2012 11:50 AM

SPalinTime050410_03_X17brighter.jpgAfter ABC created waves by announcing that Katie Couric will fill-in for Robin Roberts on Monday's Good Morning America, NBC has announced big plans of their own. The peacock network will have Sarah Palin co-host their popular morning show Today on Monday.

On NBC's website, the network says that during her co-hosting stint, Sarah will "reveal a different side of her than you've seen before." Also to sweeten the deal, NBC also is boasting that "a surprise legend will return to the broadcast Monday morning."

You may recall, Couric and Palin's infamous interview from 2008 which caused some controversy and ruined much of the then-Presidential candidate's credibility.

Should be interesting to see these two ladies face off on opposite networks!

X17 Poll

Which morning news co-host are you more anxious to watch?

Sarah Palin on NBC! She will definitely bring something fresh to morning TV.
Katie Couric on ABC! She's a true pro and will definitely bring in ratings.
Neither of them! I'm not a fan of Sarah nor Katie.
I'll be watching the CBS Early Show.

Sarah Palin And John McCain Slam HBO's Game Change Biopic

Mar 12, 2012 09:50 AM

palin-game-change.jpgHBO premiered Game Change on Saturday, which follows Sarah Palin and John McCain's unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign, and the former running mates have both spoken out about the political biopic.

Palin told Fox News before the premiere that she was "not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about."

Palin is played by four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore, but that doesn't seem to be influencing her opinion of the film. The former Alaska governor added, "I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's 'Team Obama' isn't top of my list." Burn!

McCain also took issue with how he is characterized in the movie, telling Fox, "I have been told I am portrayed as using an exceeding amount of coarse language. I don't use coarse language very often. I have a larger vocabulary than that." Maybe he should watch the film first though? Just a thought!

Of Palin, McCain added, "I thought she was best qualified person. ... I'm grateful that she ran with me, and I will always be proud of what we did."

Julianne Moore Slams Sarah Palin, Reveals How She Got Into Character For Game Change

Feb 16, 2012 03:35 PM


Julianne Moore is interviewed in the new issue of Capitol File, and the actress chats about her portrayal of Sarah Palin in the upcoming HBO film, Game Change.

Moore tells the mag, “I basically had two months to prepare, so I cleared my schedule of everything, literally. I cleared everything that didn’t involve my family -- I just let go of it and spent all my time doing research. It was total immersion. The trickiest thing is to take all these physical and vocal characteristics and somehow filter the character’s essence through them. And then you personally have to meet them somewhere, too. There’s this melding that has to happen.”

After checking out the trailer, we think Moore nailed the role of Palin, but that doesn't mean she respects her! “She was not qualified to be vice president," Moore says. "She wasn’t a qualified candidate. I think that became quite evident during the campaign. It was so shocking to me when she resigned the governorship of Alaska when the presidential election was over. I was stunned. I just think that shows such an unbelievable lack of interest in the actual governing.” Ouch!

Sarah Palin Struggles To Find A Network For Her New Reality Show

Dec 13, 2011 09:35 AM

noonelovesSarahPalin.jpgFor starters, the series sounds like something we could fall asleep to, and get this -- Sarah Palin reportedly wants $1 million per episode!

Palin and veteran TV producer Mark Burnett are currently pitching a new series which would follow her husband Todd Palin's career as a championship snowmobile racer, but sources tell Hollywood Reporter that both TLC and A&E (which fought over Sarah Palin's Alaska back in 2010) aren't interested. Though Alaska debuted on TLC with a record-breaking five million viewers, it was not renewed for a second season.

"I think it's safe to say her time has passed," a network insider told THR. And not only that, but $1 million per episode is a lot of money for a show that isn't even on the air yet...

New Book Claims Sarah Palin Cheated On Husband, Used Cocaine

Sep 14, 2011 11:45 AM

SarahPalinBookCocaine230.jpgTalk about going rogue.

A new book, The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, claims the politician cheated on her husband, Todd, with his business partner Brad Hanson in a six-month affair.

When Todd found out about the trysts, he ended the business relationship.

In addition, the book alleges that in 1987, a 20-something Palin had a one-night stand with basketball star Glen Rice while she was a sports reporter and he was playing in a college basketball tournament.

There are also accusations of cocaine use. Supposedly, before Palin became governor of Alaska, she and hubby Todd were into the drug. The book's author, Joe McGinniss, describes an incident in which Palin snorted the drug off of an oil drum.

McGinnis has been working on the unauthorized biography since 2009 -- he even moved into a rental home next to the Palins in Alaska.
