"Dear ABC, Whoever OK'd Kathy Ireland on the red carpet... should be fired. Immediately," one viewer, @markicostello, Tweeted. Another viewer, @liliceprincess, was equally critical, Tweeting, "Kathy Ireland was posing way too much. Her hands were robotic. It was all very awkward."

For her part, Ireland answered back to her critics on her official Twitter page, often responding directly to people's comments. She maintained she wasn't on medication or drinking, and was just happy to be there.

"Laughed @ being hot topic on twitter 2night," she Tweeted. "So many misunderstood that the J.O.Y. was being invited 2 co host. Grateful to all. Thank You!"
