Don Lemon had his day in the studio without Katilan Collins. The 56-year-old CNN This Morning star appeared relaxed and cheery running the show alongside Poppy Harlow and without Collins just days after his blowup on his co-anchor, 30, was revealed.

RadarOnline.com has discovered that while Don and Poppy informed viewers of the biggest news stories in New York on Tuesday, Collins — CNN's youngest chief White House Correspondent — was away on assignment at Capitol Hill.

Insiders tell RadarOnline.com that Collins' Washington D.C. assignment "has been in place for weeks" and "Don and Poppy will join her there for tomorrow’s broadcast" as CNN ramps up its special State of the Union coverage.

On Monday, Lemon and Collins sat awkwardly next to each other at the co-anchor table, marking their first reunion since Don's bad behavior made headlines. Viewers noticed the tension — and the following day, Collins was over 200 miles away.

"Kaitlan wants to be on set with Don as little as possible," an insider shared, adding the situation is "messy."
