Megyn Kelly mocked Chris Cuomo for his new “self-help” videos, saying “nobody’s listening to that” after the former CNN host announced on a podcast that he would do a “personal property.”
“Is she going to go the Gwyneth Paltrow route? Like we’re going to get candles from her later?” Kelly joked on Tuesday’s episode of her SiriusXM program “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
Kelly accused Cuomo of misrepresenting a statement that he “just stood at a light in” Manhattan where “the guy next to me was listening” to his podcast, “The Chris Cuomo Project.”
“There’s no way this could happen,” Kelly said, noting that “The Chris Cuomo Project” has 86,000 subscribers on YouTube.
“He’s just the opposite — full of hubris and deceit and his self-deception, ‘It’s funny, it’s funny how people love me,'” Kelly said of Cuomo. .
A source close to the situation echoed Kelly’s comments on Wednesday.
“Megyn Kelly may no longer have a prime spot on television and is relegated to being just another angry mouthpiece on the internet,” the source said.
On his podcast, Kelly played a clip of Cuomo during one of his “Walk and Talk” appearances.
In the photo, Cuomo can be seen walking in style while offering advice on personal development.
“Have you created a personal wealth series?” Cuomo said in the video.
The televangelist urged its viewers to look at “what you like and don’t like, where you are, where you want to be” while evaluating “work” and “relationships .”
Cuomo said “my job is the easiest of my life.”
“I know what to do, I know how to do the job,” Cuomo said, adding that he had the benefit of “many years.
Kelly joked that Cuomo’s podcast “isn’t even in the top 200 news podcasts.”
“I mean, it’s not about the top 200,” Kelly said.
“By the way, our show is always in the top five, and those before us are the behemoths like the New York Times ‘The Daily,’ like 10 million today. .. Our show is doing great,” Kelly. according to.
“But consider the randos in New York City you [Chris] alone [happened] pull back and listen?”
Cuomo, the longtime host of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” was fired by the network in December 2021 after it was discovered that he had given advice to his brother, who is New York Gov. .
After a month-long hiatus, Cuomo reappeared on NewsNation, Nexstar’s cable news channel that boasts a strong cast of reporters and experts including Ashley Banfield, Elizabeth Vargas and Dan Abrams.
NewsNation, which bills itself as a nonpartisan alternative to the ideological agenda of competitors like CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, has had trouble gaining traction in the ratings race.
In February, Cuomo told Anthony Scaramucci that the numbers for his report were “shameful.”
Cuomo told “the Mooch” that he was so worried after being “s–t-canned” by CNN that he would “kill everybody, including myself.”
“I have to agree [my firing] because I’m going to kill everyone, including myself,” the 52-year-old newsman told the Mooch podcast, “Open Book.”
“Things can destroy you.”
