TLC’s ‘What Not To Wear’ Host Not A Fan of Sarah Palin

Clinton Kelly What Not To WearIf Aaron Sorkin’s rant on Sarah Palin and her show Sarah Palin’s Alaska and the general angry backlash at her daughter’s uncanny (and undeserved) rise to the top of the Dancing With The Stars ranks taught us anything it’s that the entertainment world generally isn’t a fan of the former governor of Alaska. Now, here to add more fuel to the fire is Palin’s fellow TLC star, Clinton Kelly. The What Not To Wear host shared his very scathing opinion of the budding reality star, and perhaps Kelly’s not a big enough star to have PR people jumping down his throat to keep him from running his mouth, because he was not holding back.

He stopped by The Joy Behar Show on HLN and told America how he really feels. As the resident TLC expert, he explained that he dislikes sharing “his” network with Palin because “she basically stands for everything I don`t stand for or I`m against. So it`s a little bit rough. It`s a little — what bothers me the most about her is her hypocrisy…look how beautiful everything is. Let’s go kill something…” It’s not a new opinion and I don’t envy his position, but it’s definitely an overly candid response toward a network that’s paying his bills and keeping him in those plaid sport coats and Kenneth Cole shoes.

The real zinger was when Kelly admitted that of course Palin should be a celebrity, but that she should stay out of the political arena, agreeing with Behar and touting the assertion that Palin only “thinks she’s in politics.” Yikes. I’d be more careful if I were Kelly; Palin’s armed and…okay she’s not that dangerous, but she is armed (should she go all Cheney on her fellow TLC star, he’d probably have ample time to flee; it took her like seven shots to finally get that caribou).

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
