Arnold Schwarzenegger gave an exclusive interview to “60 Minutes,” in an episode airing last night, to promote his new memoir, Total Recall (clever!). Leslie Stahl needled the former California governor about the many sordid personal details revealed in the book, including his longtime affair with he and wife Maria Shriver’s housekeeper, which resulted in a child. He also discussed the fact that he’d actually cheated many, many times over the years, and that Maria was aware of his infidelities. “I’m not perfect,” Schwarzenegger said dully. No. Shit. Two clips above!
I’m sorry, did you think the Adele lovefest would end so soon? Of course not! The Grammy-winning singer appeared on “60 Minutes” on Sunday and was in adorable form. Enjoy this highlights reel which features loads of her adorable giggle, her promise that her next record won’t be about breakups, and the statement, “I don’t want to be a skinny minnie with my tits out.”
Dear God, why hasn’t CBS forced Andy Rooney to retire? My favorite — and by favorite, I mean least
favorite, but in a painfully amusing way — segment on “60 Minutes” is when Andy Rooney is given the floor to cantankerously complain about the things that irritate him. Whether it’s the stupid mail and presents sent to him by fans (seriously, he complains about free gifts), spam, or some turn-of-phrase that Andy finds particularly annoying, Rooney is always pissed off about something. The thorn in his side this weekend? Popular music! Specifically, why he hasn’t heard of all the musical artists that are currently on the Billboard charts! Why has he
, a normal, average American, never heard of this Justin Bieber, or that Lady Gaga, or some fella named Usher? I don’t really get Rooney’s point other than he’s out of touch because he’s incredibly old, but this segment was all sorts of hand-meet-forehead. Can he go back to complaining about Facebook now?

We’ve been on the fence about Anna Wintour and her persona, wondering whether she puts on a bitch front because she can. However, after seeing her speak last Tuesday and watching the “60 Minutes” special and its outtakes, the Vogue editor-in-chief has our respect. And, she’s taught us a few valuable lessons that explain and defy her reputation.

“60 Minutes” devoted a 13-minute segment to profiling Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, this weekend. Journalist Morley Safer described Wintour as “a name that strikes terror in some, loathing in others, and transforms some into obsequious toadies.” Not that his observation is incorrect, but, geez, what a way to introduce someone.
It didn’t stop there. If the “60 Minutes” profile didn’t have you squealing at the high-profile cameos (Karl Lagerfeld! Andre Leon Talley!), maybe you’re a bigger ice queen than this supposed queen of the ice queens herself. Clip after the jump … Keep reading »
We normally don’t have plans on Sunday night, but this week, we’re booked. At long last, the Anna Wintour “60 Minutes” segment will air on CBS at 7 p.m. ET. Recently, Anna has been opening herself up to the public much more than usual. Not only is “The September Issue” documentary being released this September, but she also spoke in New York earlier this week. I attended her Q&A on Tuesday, and most of the discussion focused on the business of fashion and publishing (though she did divulge that she “hasn’t been able to look at brown the same way” since wearing that color school uniform growing up). We’re hoping the “60 Minutes” segment will let us into her life a little more, and we know we’ll get to hear her talk about her ever-present sunglasses: “They are seriously useful. I can sit in a show and if I am bored out of my mind, nobody will notice… At this point, they have become, really, armor.” [CBS News] Keep reading »
