Norm MacDonald, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Norm MacDonald and Jimmy Kimmel got to talking about Don Rickles on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), which led to Rickles's long friendship with Frank Sinatra. MacDonald actually had a lunch with Rickles the week that Sinatra died.

While he thought at first they should maybe not talk about it then, he ultimately couldn't resist. "Hey Don, have you talked to Frank lately?" he asked Rickles.

"Yeah, I saw him last week," Rickles replied. "There was a lot of this!" At this point, Rickles mimicked spitting up and drooling. "It's a lot of me with my head two inches from Frank's face going 'I'm not Barbara!'"

First of all, you know Sinatra must have been far gone if he thought Rickles looked like his wife, Barbara. Second, it's classic Rickles to resort to comedy even in what must have been a painful moment for him. Though with Sinatra's health so poor by the end, maybe Rickles was relieved to know his friend was moving on to a better place.
