Whoa! Call Off the Hounds: Robert Pattinson Was Joking About Dog Sex!

Call off the dogs, already. Robert Pattinson says his story about doggie sex on the set of his new movie “Good Time,” was just a joke. It never really happened, at least not the way he told it. Way to cover, Rob! Pattinson obviously didn’t realize the incident he described on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” had potentially criminal implications. ...

Robert Pattinson Could Spark Probe Over Animal Abuse in New Film (video)

Robert Pattinson could get wrapped up in a criminal investigation into animal abuse after revealing on Jimmy Kimmel last night that the directors of his new movie “Good Time” encouraged him to masturbate a dog for a scene in the movie. Sexually abusing an animal is grounds for animal cruelty in New York State where the film was shot, according to legal references. ...

Natalie Portman Bashes France for Rudeness, Ooo La… Ouch! (video)

Natalie Portman, who gushed about moving to France three years ago to be with husband Benjamin Millepied, is bashing the country now that she’s moved back to Los Angeles. She told Jimmy Kimmel last night American is far friendlier. Portman hit the show to promote “A Tale of Love and Darkness.” She wrote, stars in and directed the picture about Israeli author Amos Oz. She’s also appearing in a racy French film, “Planetarium,” with 16-year-old Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of actor Johnny Depp and French singer Vanessa Paradis. ...

Kelly Ripa Faces New Problem; No One Wants to be Her Permanent Co-Host

Kelly Ripa kicked off her show this morning (May 16) with a new title and what is likely to be a string of temporary co-hosts. But studio executives are worried that events of the past month will make it exceedingly difficult to find a permanent co-host, according to industry sources. Ripa was joined on ABC’s newly titled “Live With Kelly” today by late night host Jimmy Kimmel. ...

Oscars: Awful Moments, Cheesy Jokes, Preening Celebs… And Lady Gaga

The Oscars pretty much had everything you could want from a cheesy, social media and celeb-obsessed awards show. Racism, racist jokes, Lady Gaga, lots of awkward moments, a three foot tall Kevin Hart, global warming expert Leo DiCaprio and some serious right-wing bashing! Lastly, kudos to Leo for finally taking one home! Whether or not you thought his performance in “The Revenant” was Oscar worthy, you have to admit, there’s few actors around today with DiCaprio’s body of work who don’t possess a golden statue....

Jimmy Kimmel ISIS Pay Crunch Spoof Questionable in Taste (Watch!)

Jimmy Kimmel has found a fix for ISIS terrorists who are barely making ends meet after their exalted caliphate cut pay in half. He spoofs their predicament with an add for career re-training, but it’s in questionable taste given the group’s barbaric murders. U.S. air raids on their money-making ventures, like bootleg oil, have hit the group hard....

Donald Trump, the Chief Alienator, Promises to Ease Up on Rivals (watch!)

Donald Trump, who’s managed to alienate key voting blocs, not to mention his GOP rivals, promised last night on Jimmy Kimmel to show a kinder, gentler side now that he is ahead in most early polls. He even softened his position on Muslims and immigration. “I’ve been a little bit divisive,” Trump acknowledged, after Kimmel noted that he’d eased up on his opponents during the CNN debate. ...

Hillary Clinton Attempts Late Night Schick on Jimmy Kimmel Live (watch!)

Hillary Clinton did her best to look personable and relaxed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night. But she talked at hyper speed and did this strange bobbing and weaving motion in her chair. She came across like Shecky Green when a little Margaret Thatcher might have helped. Thatcher earned the nickname “Iron Lady” as leader of Britain’s Conservative Party and Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990....

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. ...

Ali Wentworth Pulls a Miley Cyrus on Jimmy Kimmel: Flashes Puppies! (see!)

Ali Wentworth, a Washington, D.C. blueblood, comedian and wife of ABC’s George Stephanopolous, was all about baring, if not her soul, at least her flesh on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night. She pulled a Miley Cyrus on national television. Wentworth, 50, is best known for her roles on Fox’s “In Living Color,” and for her immortal guest appearance on the hit comedy show “Seinfeld.”...

Kelly Clarkson Adds Spark to Tinder, Putting Profiles to Music (watch!)

Kelly Clarkson put a new twist to the hot dating app Tinder on Jimmy Kimmel last night. She set some weird profiles to music and sang her heart out to bring them hilariously to life, including the guy with a foot fetish. Kimmel isn’t exactly up to speed on the trendy dating app, but did his best to explain how it often leads to hookups in “public bathrooms.”...

Michelle Obama Gets Funky With Jimmy Fallon ‘Mom Dancing’ (watch!)

Michelle Obama joined President Obama on the talk show circuit last night with a demonstration of “mom dancing,” you know, the kind of moves your mom makes when she’s chaperoning the junior high school dance. Jimmy Fallon joined her, of course, in drag. Michelle was actually making a return visit for “The Evolution of Mom Dancing” Part 2. President Obama made his own appearance last month on Jimmy Kimmel to read some of his mean Tweets...

Rihanna Gives Jimmy Kimmel a Wake Up Call on April Fool’s Day (watch!)

Rihanna is a practical joker? Who knew? For April Fool’s Day, yesterday, she decided to pull a prank on the master of pranks Jimmy Kimmel. She showed up at his house to give him a wake up call in the wee hours of the morning. Who knew Rihanna was even up that late? Then, again, it was only 1 a.m. Who knew Kimmel went to be so early? The Barbadian singer, who is revving up her career after an 18 month (or so) hiatus, showed up at Kimmel’s house before the sun had even risen....

Yes, President Obama Gets Them Too: Reads Mean Tweets on Kimmel

President Obama may be our national leader, but on social media, he’s just like any other celebrity. He gets his fair share, maybe more than his fair share, of mean Tweets, and last night he read a few on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Obama may be the first social media savvy president in the nation’s history. He handled the spot like a pro. He read the Tweets with just the right tone and self-deprecation and even agreed with a few. But, honestly, were these really the meanest Tweets the show could find?...

Jimmy Kimmel Proves You Can Be Two Places at Once… Virtually (see!)

Jimmy Kimmel proved last night that you really can be in two places at once… at least virtually. He did a double take appearing simultaneously on his show and at the Country Music Awards in Nashville, joined by singer Kacey Musgraves. He made the trip via hologram, which can project a seemingly 3D image through the use of technology. “Tonight we’re making television history,” Kimmel told his studio audience. ...
