LA Times columnist Bill Plaschke got all creepy on everyone when he told “Around the Horn” co-panelist Jackie MacMullan that she looked “really hot” during a filming break on the show Monday. But Plaschke didn’t stop there. Oh no. He even told Jackie that she was “smoking” hot.
“Jackie, can you hear me?” Plaschke asked during a break on the show. “I gotta say something … don’t hold it against me … but you look really hot today. You do,” he told her.
“You really look good today,” he continued. “Not that you don’t always look good, but you are smoking today!”
After host Tony Reali ribbed Plaschke for hitting on MacMullan, the columnist defended himself.
“Why can’t a man give a compliment to a woman?”
To the best of our knowledge, MacMullan is married with children, so if she has a husband, he probably is booking a flight out to LA to tell Plaschke to keep his glasses and goatee to himself. Good thing for him she took it well.
This has also confirmed that the best parts of the show occur during breaks.
