Embarrassment abounds all around when beautiful bimbo botches the news

As a feminist, I don't want to crassly bash a woman's appearance, but since the crass premise of
"Anchorman" is that the lead, Lauren Jones, is hot-hot-hot, I just have to say she's not-not-not.
Like Pam Anderson, Jones looks like a female female impersonator. She's good-looking from far
away, with dyed and straightened hair, mega-waxed eyebrows and glob makeup. That's TV pretty,
not actual pretty.
In other words, maybe she should anchor a local newscast in tiny Tyler, Texas. That's what a TV
station -- and Fox -- thought. They hired the former Bob Barker "beauty" to pack her sequined
bikini and take her Kabuki-ish theater there. ...
