Late Night Comics Go to Town on Donald Trump, Mike Flynn (see!)

There seems to be no end to the laughter about Donald Trump and his erstwhile National Security Adviser Mike Flynn. Late night comics jumped into the fray with pungent jokes about the hapless president and his latest crisis. Trump has become a staple on shows like “Saturday Night Live,” and can’t escape being lampooned during late-night monologues. Conan O'Brien, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon have all worked Trump into their monologues. ...

Bernie Sanders Calls Donald Trump Tweets ‘Delusional, Insane’ (Watch!)

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Democratic candidate for president, told Conan O’Brien last night (Nov. 29) that President-elect Donald Trump’s rambling Tweets are “delusional and insane.” He also warned that Trump and the GOP are about to engage in a massive effort to suppress poor and minority votes.

Donald Trump ‘Ad’ for Black Votes Promises Return to Segregation (video)

Donald Trump pledges to do far more for black voters than rival Hillary Clinton, including giving them their own bathrooms and water fountains in a new campaign ad that aired on “Conan O’Brien” last night. Wait a minute isn’t that, like, a return to segregation? The campaign ad was actually a hilarious send up of Trump’s recent appeal to African-American voters made in front of a largely white audience. ...

Kristen Stewart New Gal Pal Rumors: What to Believe, What Not to Believe

Kristen Stewart can’t shake rumors that she’s batting from both sides of the plate, but the latest speculation about her love life an rumored hook up with singer Lyndsey Gunnulfsen is based on the flimsiest evidence, which means no evidence at all. Stewart touched off the latest tabloid speculation when she showed up at a concert of hardcore band PVRIS last week in New York City....

Stephen Colbert Monologue Debut: How Do You Rate Him? (video!)

Stephen Colbert kicked off his new “Late Show” gig with a standard late night opening monologue. He certainly had more energy that David Letterman, but will his frenetic, madman style really be enough to set him apart from the crowd? Johnny Carson, and for that matter, his predecessor Jack Paar, set the tone and style for late night interview shows. Their humor was low-key, cool and ironic. ...

Jennifer Lawrence Has a Potty Mouth; Swears Like Sailor on Conan (watch!)

Jennifer Lawrence has been known to fire off expletives at a moment’s notice, so Conan O’Brien challenged her last night (July 9) to swear as many times as she could in 30 seconds. He paid $100 for every word and let’s just say she cleaned fu*king house. Lawrence and co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson popped in on the talk show host following their appearance at Comic Con in San Diego. O’Brien hosted the “Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2″ panel at the convention, which included the three, plus Willow Shields, Director Francis Lawrence and Producer Nina Jacobson....

Kristen Stewart landed Paris for the Fourth of July weekend, with a posse of gal pals that included Elvis Presley granddaughter Riley Keough, but personal assistant and roommate Alicia Cargile apparently didn’t make the trip.

Romero, London fashionista Charlotte Hayes-Jones and Sasha Lane, according to Instagram photos....

Jeremy Renner Sticks By Derogatory Black Widow Joke on Conan (watch!)

Jeremy Renner, who has played Hawkeye in three Avengers movies, was unrepentant on Conan O’Brien last night when the talk show host asked him to explain why he called Scarlett Johansson’s character, Black Widow, a “slut” during a promotional tour for “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Rennter, 44, was bantering with co-star Chris Evans, aka Capt. America, when they joked that their fictional teammate was a “slut” and a “complete whore.”...

Kristen Stewart Tips Nature of Alicia Cargile Relationship on Conan (watch!)

Kristen Stewart seemed loose and relaxed on Conan O’Brien last night and indirectly shed some light on her relationship with Alicia Cargile, who may be her lover as well as her personal assistant, according to tabloids. But it’s not what you think. She joked about Justin Bieber, meeting Robert Redford and winning the Cesar, the French equivalent of an Oscar for her role in the movie “Clouds of Sils Maria.” But her most telling comments came when she and O’Brien got into a discussion about Conan’s long working relationship with his personal assistant, Sona Movsesian....

Mila Kunis Expresses Shock Over Post-Baby Boobs on Conan (watch!)

Mila also talked about “hate watching” reality television shows while exercising on a treadmill....

Jennifer Garner, Hollywood A-Listers Turn to Commercials (video!)

Jennifer Garner is one of Hollywood’s A-listers who have suddenly began popping up in domestic television commercials, a line of work once thought to be the domain of Hollywood has-beens and obscure celebrities. She is currently shilling for Capital One, the credit card company that has been accused in the past of charging exorbitantly high interest rates. But she’s not alone. Another A-lister, Matthew McConaughey, who just won the Academy Award for best actor for his role in “The Dallas Buyers Club,” is currently appearing in domestic commercials for carmakers. ...

Joan Rivers’ Passing Ends One of the Greatest Celebrity Feuds of All Time

Joan Rivers was a comedy pioneer breaking down barriers for women in show business, but her ambition, brashness and acerbic wit ignited one of the biggest celebrity feuds in Hollywood history. It only now ends with her death. The feud, of course, involved the king of late night television Johnny Carson. Like most bitter feuds, theirs started out with a strong friendship and ended in bitterness and recrimination. For Rivers, it was also career damaging and nearly career ending. ...

Jennifer Lawrence, Hacked Celebs Become Late Night Punch Line (see!)

Jimmy Kimmel and other late night hosts have moved in on the nude celebrity hacking scandal like sharks on a floating whale carcass, even as much of Hollywood cries foul over the release of dozens of intimate photos over the Internet. “Nude and intimate photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and a lot of other females were posted on line over the weekend,” Kimmel said opening his monologue last night...

Jessica Alba Electric in Revealing Blue Dress at Sin City Debut (pics!)

Jessica Alba was effortlessly sexy in a revealing strapless dress on the red carpet last night (Aug. 19) at the Hollywood premiere of her new movie “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.” The 33-year-old actress, who is one of the most naturally beautiful women in movies, kept her makeup at a minimum with nude lipstick, and a smokey-brown eyeshadow.

Lizzy Caplan Tells All About First Sex Scene on Masters of Sex (watch!)

Lizzie Caplan, who by now, could call herself a “sexpert,” tells Conan O’Brien about her first intimate scene with co-star Michael Sheen on the hit Showtime series “Masters of Sex.” It’s not quite what you might think. Kaplan, 32, plays Virgina Johnson, a “sexologist,” who worked on the pioneering Masters and Johnson study of sex during the uptight 1950s. As such, the part calls for regular sex scenes with Sheen, who plays sex researcher William H. Masters. Shooting the scenes are far from fun and games. She says her first encounter with Sheen in front of the cameras ended badly. ...

Dr Phil Called Out by Conan O’Brien Over V. Stiviano Interview (watch!)

Dr. Phil McGraw threw some hardball questions at Donald Sterling’s alleged mistress, V Stiviano,. But the ones about sex particularly irked comedian Conan O’Brien. “He really grilled her about all the rumors that she was actually sterling’s mistress.

Dr. Phil went into considerable detail about the allegations, obviously to titillate the audience. ...
