Leeann Tweeden has been an internet and Google image search favorite for a very long time, but she’s burning up the SEO today due to the accusations that she has made against Senator and former comedian Al Franken. Tweeden maintains that Franken groped and kissed her without consent in 2006. 

Franken has issued a public apology and explanation of his actions.

He’s also called for an ethics investigation on himself.

We’ll just leave the political and news aspects of this story right there. If you want to get into a political debate that’s awesome, but you can check out my political blog at Chicago Now for that; go to this link.

Or if you want to discuss the current events implication of today’s developments then you can read this piece on the situation by Vox. This article is about the CV of model, broadcaster, television and radio hostess Leann Tweeden, as we’ll detail her career for you here.

You can make up your own value judgment about her, all we’re doing is presenting the list of gigs that she’s had in the past, and posting photos that she choose to pose and get paid for. As the press conference cliche goes: “it is what it is.”

Express your judgments in the comments section- that’s exactly what it’s for. Many of you already have.

While working as a hostess at a Hooters restaurant (she was in their 1994 calendar) she won first place in the Venus International Model Search.

Tweeden modeled for promotional work for Hooters and Venus International along with Frederick’s of Hollywood and Playboy. Her 2011 Playboy pictorial was nude, while her 1996 appearance was not.

The March 2007 Issue of FHM (which was the final printed US issue) featured the currently 44 year old Manassas, Virginia native as the cover girl.

Tweeden then became a correspondent for Fox Sports Net’s Best Damn Sports Show Period from 2000 to 2007. See this article is about sports. In 2008, Tweeden became the third hostess of the NBC late night television series Poker After Dark. As part of Hooters’ 25th anniversary in 2008, Tweeden was named among “The Top Hooters Girls of all time.”

From there, Tweeden moved on to doing Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pre- and post-game coverage work on Fox Sports West. See this is a baseball news story.

In February she joined the Los Angeles morning radio show McIntyre in the Morning on KABC 790 AM. She currently appears as a news anchor from 5-10AM weekdays.

  1. YOU LYING FUCKING BITCH . ING ABOUT A DAM SKIT..HOW MUCH DID YOU GET PAID. I HOW YOU BE PAYBACK A THOUSAND TIMES OVER..LOOK AT THE TROUBLE UYOU MADE U FUCKING.
    .LIEDPAY BACK IS A BITCH

  2. yeh. theres something really funny about her whole franken story….

  3. Can she honestly claim in her career as a nude Playboy,Venus,Hooters and Fredricks of Hollywood tha Al Frankin is the only man who ever acted inappropriately towards her. Admittedly the photo was wrong because it took advantage of her while she was sleeping. She could not make a conscious decision to participate in the joke or not. The kiss may have been unwelcome and forcefully intrusive, she did agree to it. We also should take into account he is a comedian and did stupid stuff to be funny (like SNL) I feel she is an right wing opportunist that is trying to take down a liberal.

  4. MONEY GOLDDIGGING WHORE.

  5. She needs more money to pump up the breasts, tan, and buy fake glasses to make her appear “intellectual.”

  6. born again trumpite. no wonder she carried out the hit on al franken, who did freely admit to inappropriate behavior and apologized in writing. that wasn’t good enough for self-serving leeann. no, she had to read the apology on The View looking so stern faced indignant. phony, believe me. sad.

  7. Thanks for sullying maybe the only decent person in the senate. You posed for playboy, you’re all over the internet in panties and a bra. Who paid you? You are a dispicable excuse for a human. Act like a slut get treated like a slut.

  8. I was sad as I listened to her recount her story. Harassment is when you are in danger not pissed off. Sure the kiss was unwanted but not worth national attention. Maybe a phone call or just avoid the guy. If this is the worst thing that’s bugging you – lucky you. You have lower the bar for the cause. The oxygen belongs to the women who are truly brave. Stop talking.

  9. Anyone willing to pose naked or in provocative underwear in provocative poses assumes they will “provoke” advances both wanted and unwanted- I watched her interview on CNN and could not figure out why they let her go on and on about something that truly did not warrant so much attention. Something is not right here-Trumps dialog on the bus about “grabbing woman in the pussy” who are not displaying provocative sexually suggestive behavior is far worse in my opinion. This woman clearly is not straight up-

  10. She has cheapened the stories of the women who were REALLY HARASSED- How much did you get paid ?
    There are nude and near nude pictures of you all over the internet ……The fact that you work for Fox News says it all…..You are a liar, a hypocrite and a poor excuse of a human being. Karma will get you ….. You really should be ashamed
    Signed – Someone who REALLY was HARRASSED and knows a liar when they see one.
    A curse upon you for the damage you have done

  11. Leeann Tweeden is nothing more than an attention grabbing provocateur, using her sexuality to taunt, tantalize, provoke, and entice men,…and then cry “victim” when she’s accosted. The countless raw photos of her are a testament to her duplicitous nature. This is true of so many female celebrities who tantalize men in much they same way. What a deceitful double standard!
