  1. I enjoy listening to Hoda on a daily basis. Her light hearted comments and laughter are things I can relate too, un- like Jenna who seems to always want to have the focus on her! I especially disliked her letting us know of her ” going commando ” and then bringing her child forward who repeated her choice. Now every time I look at Jenna it grosses me out! As a former 1st daughter why was it necessary to discuss this! Unfortunately lately I find myself changing channels to avoid her exuberance and immaturity. Thank you for listening.
