Olivia Munn: Angel for Horses on Today Show

Published by PETA.

When Olivia Munn cohosted the Today Show with Hoda Kotb on St. Patrick’s Day, Hoda mentioned that her ex-husband proposed to her while they were riding in a horse-drawn carriageUh-oh.

There wasn’t enough green beer in the studio to make Olivia let that remark go unchallenged

“Did you guys just watch an 80s chick flick and then go off, and then did you realize that it’s really horrible to ride in those carriages with those poor horses?” she asked.

A chagrined Hoda said that it seemed romantic at the time but turned out not to be.

“Do you not regret it?” Olivia asked.

Hoda replied, “Well, yeah, ’cause I’m divorced!” 

“‘Cause you were in a carriage ride in Central Park!” Olivia declared.

Well played, Olivia, well played.
