Stephanie Abrams Stuck Does Weather Report From Elevator – Stephanie Abrams, of the “Today” show, found herself stuck in an elevator on the way to work. However, she didn’t let that little dilemma stop her from doing her job.
Abrams was supposed to be filling in for Al Roker, and was on her way to the office when her elevator got stuck. “All of a sudden we were jostled around and dropped and we all kind of gasped.” she said.
She had her hair, makeup, and wardrobe team with her while she was on the phone with Matt Lauer, explaining the situation.
“Worst case scenario, you’re stuck in there four or five days. At least you have your hair and makeup people; you’ll look great when they rescue you,” Lauer said.
As she was on the phone, Lauer asked her if she could still do the weather forecast.
She told him yes, and gave a spotless report.
About 10 minutes later, she and the rest of the people with her were rescued, and she was in the “Today” studio just over half an hour late.
She reportedly said that she was hoping for “some hunky firemen to rescue me.”
