“New Day” anchor John Berman was left a little rattled after watching Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s performance of the song “Shallow” at the Academy Awards, suggesting on the CNN morning show Monday that the on-scream chemistry between the two was hot enough to leave him with child.
“I need to take a shower. I need to take a cold shower,” Berman quipped.”I just got pregnant.”
“Ether they are the best actors on planet Earth–” he continued, trailing off a bit before adding, “co-workers have to be careful. It never happens between anchors.”
Fellow co-host Alisyn Camerota said the chemistry between between the two was so intense that she feared for Cooper’s girlfriend, Irina Shayk.
“That was just intense,” she said. “The problem is it is like forbidden love. He has a girlfriend, with whom he has a child.”
Berman and Camerota were far from alone in noticing the steamy on-stage behavior between Gaga and Cooper. Former Spice Girl Mel B, said the moment was probably very, very awkward for Shayk.
“I felt so uncomfortable for Bradley’s girlfriend, oh my gosh,” the singer said on “Good Morning Britain” Monday. “I would like to think it was part of the whole performance, because there’s a women’s code and hopefully that’s not…hopefully, it’s only professional.”
