Tracy Morgan Gives Tearful First Interview Since Last Year’s Brutal Car Accident

Tracy Morgan has remained mostly under the radar in the year since the June 7, 2014 car accident that almost took his life. His vehicle was struck by a Walmart tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike, which badly injured him and killed his friend and mentor James McNair. As he underwent a long rehabilitation process, Morgan filed a lawsuit against Walmart for…

Joan Rivers Refuses To Apologize For Her Tasteless “Joke” About The Cleveland Kidnapping Victims

Joan Rivers made a not-so-funny “joke” on “The Today Show” yesterday about the three Cleveland women who were kidnapped by deranged creep Ariel Castro and held captive in his home for a decade. When describing how cramped her daughter’s guest room in her home is, Rivers joked that “Those women in the basement in Cleveland…

Mariah Carey Did A Whole “Today Show” Interview In Wearing A Silk Robe & Agent Provocateur Slippers

If I was a celebrity, I would be just like Mariah Carey. She’s got a “pink room” — that she doesn’t let her kids into — in her home  filled with pink cushions and rugs and a chandelier (obvs). Her Christmas tree is decorated with dozens of real peonies. And she gave this entire interview while wearing…

Jessica And Tim From “40 Days Of Dating” Reveal Their Relationship Status On “Today”

We were all wondering if the “40 Days of Dating” project would end with Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman in a relationship. Who am I kidding? No one was wondering. More like, we were hoping they would come to their senses and break up. They were so glaringly, obviously ill-suited for each other, fighting over…

Matt Lauer Acts Smug While Interviewing Trayvon Martin’s Parents

I never thought I would agree with Tom Cruise about anything, but dammit if Matt Lauer isn’t the smuggest, most terrible interviewer. On Thursday’s “Today Show,” Matt Lauer interviewed Trayvon Martin’s parents Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton. The interview starts out okay, and then Matt Lauer can’t contain his Matt Lauer-ness anymore. Of the jury,…

Why Ann Curry Really Got The Boot

If you thought things seemed a little, well, cold between Matt Lauer and Ann Curry on her final Today show appearance, there’s good reason for that, a source tells Us Weekly: “Matt Lauer is 100% behind Ann leaving,” the insider claims. There’s not much in the way of explanation given beyond that, though the source…

Ann Curry Says A Tearful Goodbye To “Today”

Not for nothing, but I think Ann Curry is getting the ass end of the donkey here. Sure, her celebrity interview style was a bit uncomfortable to watch, but she’s also an incredibly accomplished journalist with a lifetime’s worth of amazing international news coverage under her belt. This woman is one of our shining stars,…

The Most Insane Moment On This Morning’s “Today Show”: Things Will Grow On Kathie Lee’s Face

This morning, we met Mugly the Chinese Crested, the pooch who won the World’s Ugliest Dog contest for the second time in his ugly life. And somehow, some way, Kathie Lee Gifford managed to make a conversation about Mugly  into a conversation about Kathie Lee, specifically how one day she expects “things” to grow out…

The Most Insane Moment On This Morning’s “Today Show”: Alec Baldwin’s Hairy Legs

Two things make Kathie Lee Gifford very upset: cannibalism and everyone dropping their bras and pants. I was not aware that bra-dropping is sweeping the nation, even during the heatwave, but I’ll grant KLG that Alec Baldwin dropping his drawers on “Letterman” last night was weird. Really weird. Yeah, it changed the subject from Smacking

The Most Insane Moment On This Morning’s “Today Show”: Kathie Lee Teaches Kristen Stewart How To Smile

Once upon a time, the highest paid actor or actress in Hollywood was someone who had a bit more gravitas than “Twilight.” But Kristen Stewart has topped Forbes magazine’s list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, cashing in with $34.5 million in the past year.
This doesn’t sit well with Kathie Lee Gifford, who…

The Most Insane Moment On This Morning’s “Today” Show: Joan Rivers Swears Off Botox (NSFW)

At 79 years old, Joan Rivers has finally decided to embrace her natural beauty. This video is most definitely NSFW, due to a reference to Betty White’s poop. Keepin’ it classy, Joan.

Word To Your Father, Courtesy Of Vanilla Ice

So, yeah. Rob Van Winkle, better known as Vanilla Ice, was a Father’s Day gift expert on “The Today Show.” How did I not know about his show “The Vanilla Ice Project” on the DIY Network? Adding to my Hulu queue right now. Yes, he did say, “Word to your father.”  And may I remind…

Chris Rock Ad-Libs Against Chris Brown On “Today”

This morning on “The Today Show,” Matt Lauer came back from a commercial break and commented on the gorgeous sunshine: “We’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza.” Matt’s awkward word choice proved too tempting for guest Chris Rock — check out the video…

Evening Quickies: Kathie Lee Gifford Accidentally Asks Martin Short About His Dead Wife On-Air

Kathie Lee Gifford accidentally asked Martin Short about his wife, who has been dead since 2010, on-air. Awkward!  He didn’t correct her, but sweetly said he’s “madly in love” with his late wife.  After the show, Kathie Lee tweeted an apology to Short and commended him on his “enormous grace and kindness.” I agree…

Our culture tends to make women disappear as we age, so it’s exciting to see that the blog Advanced Style has been turned into a documentary and book. To celebrate, some of the sassy old broads featured on the site appeared on “The Today Show” to show off their ageless style tips. First up: Joyce, a…

Just Mindy Kaling And Bill Clinton Talking About Their Favorite Books, No Big Deal

In this clip from “The Today Show,” Ann Curry discusses favorite books with Bill Clinton and Mindy Kaling, which is, yes, kind of a strange pair. You can tell Mindy is a little freaked out by the set up, and Ann is kind of a stone cold beyotch to Mindy, dissing her while she flirt…

Today’s Lady News: “Today” Will Not Be Throwing A Gay Wedding

Lesbian and gay couples are urging NBC to open “The Today Show”‘s wedding contest to them, too. The network has said it won’t do so because New York state, where the show is filmed, doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage. Gay rights advocates say that excuse doesn’t hold water because NY actually recognizes marriage licenses from…
