Not to be outdone by Kevin Ogle’s chat with President Barack Obama or Amanda Taylor’s sit down with the Bush twins, KOKH Fox 25 landed their own exclusive interview this week. It was with Christina Fallin.
If that seems a little strange, it is. Why are they interviewing her? Are things so bad at OKC’s fourth (or fifth) favorite news channel that they’re now delving into our territory? I think they just wanted us to write about them. What’s next? A profile on Emily Sutton? The creation of Foam Core Jim Traber? Seriously, you all report the real news and leave the non-legitimate stuff — like anything having to do with Christina Fallin — to us. That’s the way it should work.
Channel 25 posted two clips of the Christina Fallin interview on their website. One was the edited piece that aired last night during the 9;00pm newscast. It was kind of fluffy. The clip you need to watch is the raw, uncut interview. It’s so unedited that it literally begins with Christina awkwardly spelling her name and ends with her playing the keyboard solo from Like a Vulture.
Check it out:
Okay, so that’s just the audio file. Channel 25’s video wouldn’t embed on our site. If someone can upload a version of the unedited video to YouTube we’d appreciate it. Maybe we’ll offer piloting lessons with Christina as a prize. That would be terrifying. Also, I lied about the keyboard solo. She doesn’t play any instrument. I guess that’s a positive thing.
In all honesty, I’m still not too sure what I think about the interview. It goes all over the map. She addresses her two marriages, the pink hair, and those “people on the Internet who write things” about her. She comes across as honest and sincere, but also like a naive, self-obsessed airhead. Shocking, huh?
For example, when she’s asked about her occupation, she claims to be a “Business Consultant” for a non-profit. That’s the female equivalent of some dude introducing himself as an “entrepreneur.” Just be honest and say you’re a trust fund baby who’s basically been given everything in life. We’ll appreciate the honesty.
The highlight of the interview was this exchange:
Q: What does your future hold for you?
A: I’m really enjoying doing things like this where I can have an impact. And I try to… My, my, my whole philosophy is to show people that it’s….Things are not what you perceive them to be. Um, I don’t know how to put it. Uhm , let me think for a minute. Um…Um…keep going with your question. I can’t explain it very much.”
Yeah, that’s our governor’s daughter. I guess the apple really doesn’t fall that far from the tree.
Anyway, the entire interview is long, fascinating, and at times uncomfortable to watch. It’s also kind of weird to see a legitimate news station take Christina Fallin seriously. Go check it out. I can’t explain it very much.
