NBC Weathergirl Caught 'Dissing' Al Roker on Live TV

6/24/2011 8:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Today's forecast ... DRAMA!!!!!

0624_weather_girl_diss_launch

Local NBC weathergirl Elita Loresca issued an apology live on the air this morning ... after she was caught talking "smack" about Al Roker when she thought her microphone was off. 

Loresca said Roker was "such a kook." 

She later was clearly forced to deliver a painfully awkward apology. 

But here's the deal -- there's nothing wrong with what she said ... AND ... Al is kind of a kook, right?

UPDATE: Al finally tweeted ... apparently, all is forgiven. "So Elita Loresca of KNBC called me a kook during a cut in. I know Elita. She was joking. And some mornings I am kooky. No big whoop."

I wouldn't call that a diss whatsoever. The man is a kook, and there's a hell of a choice of other words to use. Such a non issue...

You'd think when another person is in control of weather your microphone is live a person would know to keep her tongue.

I hope she is just pregnant...otherwise there are some "all-you-can-eat" restaurants being put out of business.

Elita can blame it on the hormonal imbalance caused by her pregnancy.

And I do agree with her, Al Roker is a super kook!

Who would be offended other than Al Roker and NBC executives?!?!

I'm offended her boobs are ogling my eyes.

BTW, that apology didn't look "awkward" at all.

Being called a kook would be a compliment for Al Roker. He looks like a burnt turd. Not to mention he looks like the retarded California Raisin that wasn't allowed to join The California Raisin Band. Or you could say he looks like ghetto Mr. Potato Head...There's a million things she could have said about him...but a kook? WTF-ever. NEXT!
