William Shatner On George Takei Feud: 'I Think He Secretly Was in Love With Me' (VIDEO)

William Shatner's interview on 'Good Day NY' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) got off to a strange start when co-host Greg Kelly's cell phone rang. In typical Shatner style, it only got weirder from there, as he speculated that the basis for his long-running feud with 'Star Trek' co-star George Takei was that Takei was secretly in love with him. For good measure, he also recited a few lines from 'Bohemian Rhapsody.'

Shatner's comments on his feud with Takei probably won't make a reconciliation any more likely. "I don't know whats the matter with him ... he just won't make up. I think secretly he was in love with me, the fact that I kissed him on the lips gently on occasion seemed to inspired him," Shatner said. In his new book 'Shatner Rules,' he writes that he believes Takei couldn't handle not being the one in the 'Star Trek' spotlight.

Shatner also has an album out, in which he performs, among other selections, 'Bohemian Rhapsody.' The taping must have been an interesting process, as he seemed to only remember one verse of lyrics. Then again, perhaps that's a credit to Shatner's peculiar genius.
