Actress Jane Fonda used a vulgar word on NBC's "Today Show" Thursday, causing a lot of controversy for the live family morning show. Personally, I think Jane Fonda is one of the hottest women on earth, and I would love to have her drop her own C bomb on me.
Fonda described her reason for acting in the Vagina Monologues and said that she initially was not interested in doing a show about cunt, a reference to the female body part. The slip prompted co-host Meredith Vieira to make a public apology.
Fonda and The Vagina Monologues playwright Eve Ensler were having a Valentine's Day conversation with Vieira about the 15th anniversary of Ensler's best-known work when Fonda said the "c-word". This is also the 10th anniversary of "V-Day," a day founded by Ensler to end violence against women and girls around the world.
"We were talking about The Vagina Monologues and Jane Fonda inadvertently said a word from the play that you don't say on television," Vieira said after a newsbreak on Today. "It was a slip and obviously she apologizes, and so do we. We would do nothing to offend the audience. So please accept that apology."
