NBC's Kelly says Fonda has 'no business' lecturing her

Ms. Kelly also invoked Ms. Fonda's nickname from the cultural wars of five decades ago - "Hanoi Jane" - adding that it had been bestowed upon the actress because she had tried to "shame American troops".

The host of NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today" took a moment Monday morning to fire back at actress Jane Fonda, who slammed Kelly for asking about her plastic surgery during an interview back in September.

"We really want to talk about that now?"

The Barbarella star hit headlines in September after snapping at the Today show host when she attempted to discuss the veteran's previous cosmetic work while she was promoting her film Our Souls at Night in an appearance with co-star Robert Redford.

"It's time to address the poor-me routine", Kelly said.

The Jane Fonda/Megyn Kelly feud is alive and well.

In another Today interview last week, while discussing their show Grace & Frankie, Lili Tomlin said she knew Fonda long before her first face-lift.

Kelly and Fonda's dispute dates back to the first week of "Megyn Kelly Live", when Kelly asked Fonda why she's said in the past that she's not proud to admit she's "had work done".

Kelly's interview with Fonda, 80, went viral after the actress responded negatively to Kelly's question about her plastic surgery.

And during an interview with Variety Saturday, Ms. Fonda told the magazine that she would only consider sitting down with Ms. Kelly again if she polished her interviewing skills.

"But I have no regrets about the question". She said she's not "in the market for a lesson from Jane Fonda on what is and is not appropriate" and dug deep into Fonda's past to talk about "a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage".

From there, Kelly spun a yarn about how Fonda had an obligation to answer her questions about plastic surgery because she herself speaks about aging in public. "So the moral indignation is a little much".

Kelly closes the segment saying, "She has no business lecturing anyone on what is offensive". Fonda looked at Tomlin and replied, "Who are you?" [Fonda] called our POW's "hypocrites and liars" and referred to their torture as "understandable" ... How "inappropriate" is it to ask about plastic surgery when you're talking to a woman who was promoting a film about aging?

Fonda courted controversy during a 1972 visit to North Vietnam, where she met with and posed for pictures with the Viet Cong at an anti-aircraft gun site.

"Everybody in the control room gasped when Megyn brought up Hoda's 'dark period, ' because many viewers likely won't know exactly what she was referring to", an NBC source told the gossip publication. Shortly after, however, producers quickly tweeted out the segment before Kelly even came on air, according to Fox News.
