Jennifer Livingston, the news anchor that recently accepted a viewer’s apology, after he made some disparaging comments regarding her weight, got a helping hand from Ellen Degeneres, whose show she’s appearing on tonight (October 9, 2012).
According to E! DeGeneres filmed a fake promo for News 8's morning broadcast with Livingston and fill-in sports anchor Matthew Perry, who is also a guest on tonight’s show. "I don't want to talk about sports, I want to talk about Jen and Bill [co-anchor Bill Graul]," said Perry in the faux promo. "You should watch them every weekday morning from 5 to 7 on News 8. Oh, and do I have time to mention my show, Go On?" The show was nearly done, but there was just one more thing for Livingston to read out, though. "This is very exciting," she began, "because the winters in Wisconsin can be so cold and Ellen thinks I deserve a little break, and you are sending me...to the Caribbean for a five-night stay?!" Well, we think you can guess her reaction.
After blasting the viewer, who insulted her about her weight, Jennifer decided to let it all go, saying to TMZ: “I hope people kinda leave him behind and leave him alone,” “I’m in no position to bully her,” Kenneth Krause, the man who made the comments told ABC News. “She’s a big media personality. I’m just a working stiff.”
