Maria Genero likes to do it herself, “Sometimes”

The whole thing started with a segment on rechargeable lightbulbs — then it devolved into a middle school masturbation joke.

The local news team at Buffalo’s WGRZ simply needed a segue from a report on energy waste to the weather. Here’s what anchorman John Beard came up with: “Speaking of do-it-yourself, that’s your kind of thing, Maria,” he said to his weathercaster, “You like doing it yourself.”

Maria Genero laughed, wished everyone a “Good morning” and then admitted this: “Sometimes, yeah.”

“I’m here doing the weather and I can see what’s going on in the background,” she explained between contagious episodes of the giggles. “It’s always some kind of shenanigans.”

Clearly. Watch the video above.

It could have been worse, Maria. You could have been puked on this week, like KTLA’s Wendy Burch.
