There are two women in Eric Paulsen's life that he sees more than any other: Sally-Ann Roberts, his co-anchor for nearly 15 years and his wife, Bethany, whom he has been happily married to for a year and half.
Well, I had an interesting thought: if I asked Eric a set of questions, who know him better? The results are interesting. Eric - I'm sorry if I got you in trouble. This was too much fun to pass up.
Question #1 - What is Eric's favorite type of King Cake?
Bethany: Plain (Randazzo)
Sally-Ann: Plain, Un-iced
Eric: Plain (Randazzo)
Question #2 - What is Eric's favorite action movie?
Bethany: Die Hard
Sally-Ann: Ninja Turtles
Eric: Die Hard
Question #3 - What is Eric's favorite type of food?
Bethany: He has a sweet tooth. Brownies and dark chocolates are his favorite.
Eric: Any food but I'll pick Louisiana Seafood.
Question #4 - If the Saints aren't playing, what NFL team is Eric cheering for?
Bethany: The Colts
Sally-Ann: St. Louis Rams
Eric: Peyton Manning and The Colts
Question #5 - What instrument did Eric play growing up?
Question #6 - Would Eric rather play golf, or watch golf?
Bethany: Watch. The only golf he plays is miniature.
Eric: Watching... although not big fan of golf either way.
Question #7 - What are the names of Eric's turtles?
Bethany: Remus, Elvis, Boy George
Sally-Ann: Laverne and Shirley
Eric: Remus, Elvis, Boy George
Question #8 - How many languages does Eric know? Bonus: Can you name them?
Bethany: He doesn't "know" any others but he remembers some German from high school & college and knows enough Spanish to get by.
Sally-Ann: One. English.
Eric: Three. English, Spanish & German.
Question #9 - What color are Eric's eyes?
Bethany: Greenish Blue
Sally-Ann: Blueish Green
Eric: Blue Green
Question #10 - What was Eric's most memorable moment on the morning show?
Bethany: Eric has had many memorable moments through the years and I know he has a favorite from the David Bernard days that stands above the rest. Although I don't know that it was a high point in morning show history that the audience needs to be reminded of. You'll have to see if Sally's willing to share that one.
Sally-Ann: Eric was startled by Rob while holding a snake. Eric then chased Rob around with the snake.
Eric: The time Sally asked David Bernard and me on live television, "have you ever had a Sugar daddy"? David and I burst out laughing... said no... then asked Sally if she'd like one. She said yes. We told her we'd work on it. During the commercial break we explained the meaning of "Sugar daddy". When we came back she apologized. You gotta love Sally.
Bethany Correct = 9
Sally-Ann Correct = 5
Well, there you have it! The person who has chosen to be with Eric knows him better than the person who is stuck working with him. And I guess that makes sense. Eric - I guess you're not sleeping on the couch tonight.
