Conan O’Brien Still Rivals with Jay Leno

Jay Leno and Conan O'BrienConan O'Brien admits that the feud between him and Jay Leno remains fierce.

The bitter rivalry began in earnest in 2010 when, barely six months after replacing Leno as host of The Tonight Show, Conan was ousted from the show. "In some ways, that was more intense than Jay versus Dave [Letterman]. It felt like the younger guard [supporting Conan] against the old guard [Leno]. People were having rallies, making videos slamming NBC, and NBC was thinking, 'How is Conan doing this?' I was being credited as a genius when I didn't have the slightest idea who these people were," Conan told ShortList magazine.

Conan - who now hosts a new self-titled talk show - added that some of his most ardent fans even went so far as to get a tattoo as a show of support. He was, however, quick to point out that he didn't necessarily appreciate the gesture. "They've tattooed my face on their body. I always feel like, 'Look, I'll pay to have that removed,'" the talk show host added.

Quote of the Day: Amy Poehler on Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler

"I was due the next day. So it's my first kid, I'm in a Mad Men outfit, I turn to everybody and I hysterically start crying, and a really pregnant woman crying is terrifying. So, juicy tears just like squirting out of my eyes. And it was like the punch line to a joke, it's like, my doctor just died and I'm due tomorrow. And Jon Hamm, who I am just getting to know, comes over and puts his hands on my shoulder and is like, 'This is a really important show for me. I'm gonna need you to get your s*** together.' And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself – I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life."

- Amy Poehler recounts in her memoir how Jon Hamm helped her get through her first pregnancy on Saturday Night Live.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, Gossip, Rumors

Bryan CranstonBryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White.

The 58-year-old actor - famed for his portrayal of the crystal meth producer in the AMC drama Breaking Bad - will "definitely" return in the new spin-off Better Call Saul, despite his character being seemingly killed off in the show's finale last year.

"With the new show coming and the possibility of flashbacks or flash-forwards, there is going to be something with Walter White. They won't do it as a gimmick, it will actually mean something when they do it. Definitely expect the return of Walter White in some way, shape or form in the new show," a source said.

However the insider was unable to confirm whether Bryan Cranston's Walter White - for which he won a Best Actor Golden Globe - will be alive when he returns to the small-screen. "I wouldn't be able to answer that, but I know that they have options of bringing him back and that they will do it in an awesome way," the insider said.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Gossip, Rumors

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West has allegedly banned Kim Kardashian from appearing on Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons.

The brunette beauty previously revealed she would join her sisters for up to a month in the exclusive enclave in Long Island, New York, after her Irish honeymoon, but her new husband doesn't want her to feature in the upcoming Keeping Up with the Kardashians spin-off series.

"There's no way Kanye was going to allow Kim do it. It's no secret how much Kanye dislikes and despises Kim's involvement with reality television, and there was no way it was going to happen so soon after the wedding. Kanye doesn't want her doing anymore reality television than she is contractually obligated to do. If Kim does agree to film, it will likely be without Kanye's knowledge beforehand!" a source said.

Kim's mother Kris Jenner is said to be "furious" that Kanye is getting involved in their business.

Pizzolatto did reveal that the show will take place in California: “Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser-known venues of California. And we’re going to try to capture a certain psycho-sphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.”
