Robert De Niro Dresses in Drag, Flirts With Diddy on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Robert De Niro Dresses in Drag, Flirts With Diddy on 'SNL'Well, Diddy got his wish, but was it worth it for Robert De Niro? Sean "Diddy" Combs was the musical guest on this week's 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC). He appeared along with third-time host Bobby (we call him "Bobby") De Niro. And the rapper started a Twitter campaign to be included in a sketch with the actor.

So, that happened -- but it may not have been the highlight of De Niro's career. The musician and the actor appeared together in a sketch featuring Andy Samberg as "Blizzard Man" -- the world's most clueless (and untalented) rapper. De Niro dressed up in drag to play Blizzard Man's mom, and soon enough, Diddy was hitting on him ... well, her.

While De Niro was decked out in a form-fitting sweater, sunglasses, and a questionable hairstyle, Diddy attempted to seduce him (her). Mr. Combs laid down such lines such as "Girl, you the one that's hot fire," and "If you wasn't my man's mom, I'd tear that a## up" -- and okay, let's just shut this whole thing down right now.

'Saturday Night Live' - Robert De Niro / Diddy-Dirty Money Recap

Robert De Niro Saturday Night Live['Saturday Night Live' - 'Season 36, Episode 8']

For a show that can be as hit-or-miss as 'SNL,' it's puzzling when they choose a host who all but guarantees a miss. I can't remember an episode, in all my 20-plus years of watching the show, that was worse than the Dec. 18, 2004 effort that marked De Niro's most recent hosting go-round.

"But it's De Niro!" you yelp, "how can you say such things about acting's greatest treasure!?" He may be, but to say that De Niro is out of his element live on stage at Studio 8H, is like saying pizza is awesome. It's just true. Can he brave the "elements," and drop his whole "I'm an acting robot, programmed to read my lines and collect awkward pauses for fuel," shtick? We could only hope and pray.

'Saturday Night Live' Promos: Robert De Niro Does His Best De Niro Impression

by Jean Bentley, posted Dec 3rd 2010 4:00PM
'Saturday Night Live'No one can do a better Robert De Niro impression than Robert De Niro.

But kudos to Kristen Wiig for trying in these funny new promos for this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live,' featuring De Niro as host and Diddy Dirty Money as the musical guest.

If Diddy has something to say about it, though, he'll take part in some skits too. The musician-turned-actor tweeted earlier this week, "OK SO DENIRO DONT KNOW IT YET BUT WE DOIN A SKIT TOGETHER ON SNL. BECAUSE I SAID SO. ITS LIVE TV SO IMMA BUMRUSH THE STAGE LILMAMA STYLE LOL."

Sean "Diddy" Combs Explains "Sexting" to David Letterman (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Oct 15th 2010 3:45AM
Sean 'Diddy' Combs Explains 'Sexting' to David Letterman"Sexting" is trendy and controversial. Sending sexually explicit photos and messages over the phone has gotten some celebrities into trouble. And David Letterman isn't a fan -- he doesn't get the whole "sexting" thing. Luckily, Sean "Diddy" Combs appeared on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) and helped Dave out.

Combs and Letterman discussed the recent Brett Favre scandal, in which Favre was accused of sending photos of his private parts to Jenn Sterger, a sports reporter and model. Dave was confused, so Sean smoothly explained how to go about "sexting" someone. "I'm the perfect spokesman," he said. "I'm a sex-texter myself."

Diddy Wants to Replace Simon Cowell on 'Idol' -- Under One Condition (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Jul 29th 2010 4:13AM
'Lopez Tonight': Diddy Wants Simon Cowell's JobDiddy admitted on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS) that at first he wasn't interested in Simon Cowell's judging job on 'American Idol.'

"My ego was involved in all of that ... That's not my style," said Diddy. "But then when I heard how much Simon makes -- I would love the job. I got six kids. If I can get the same check that Simon gets, we'd have a ball. And you know I'd act crazy."

What's in it for the contestants? Maybe he'd give lend his Lamborghini to the winner, like he did for Justin Bieber.

So how 'bout it? Facebook campaign, anyone?

'American Idol' - '1 of 10 Voted Off' Recap

american idol top 10
My favorite part about the very beginning of an 'American Idol' results show is guessing who's going to go home. According to our poll from last night's episode, most of you think that it's Didi Benami's turn to leave the stage. While I can definitely understand that rationale -- she has been murdered by the judges for the past few weeks, after all -- I disagree. Even though he did a good job last night, I kind of feel that Lee DeWyze should go home, if for no other reason than the fact that I completely forget he's on the show every week.

Before we get to the actual results, though, there's a lot of other stuff that we have to get through: namely a rally weird 'Clash of the Titans' product placement that opens the show, as well as a performance from 'Idol's' forgotten winner, Ruben Studdard. We learn a few interesting things during this performance: Ruben has lost a pretty substantial amount of weight, and he's going on tour this summer with his 'Idol' runner-up, Clay Aiken. So what do you guys think? Is this tour going to be a fun show, or just two guys trying to recapture the limelight?

What I'll be doing here is taking a look at some of the current newsworthy bits from recently-aired shows, checking out upcoming shows, and sharing the latest reality TV gossip. Is it real or is it just reality TV? As long as I'm entertained, that's all I ask of any show, scripted or not. Are you game? Join me beyond the jump.

Olympic ringsOur Monday morning roundup of a half dozen things TV Squad readers - and TV fans in general - will be talking about this week.

1. The Olympics. NBC, along with CNBC and MSNBC and USA and the web, will have approximately 477,312 hours of coverage. (Starts Friday.)

2. Primeval. New show about a rip in time that lets dinosaurs come through to modern England. Is this one of them? (Premieres Saturday at 9 on BBC America.)

3. The season finales of American Gladiator and Nashville Star. People do still care about these shows, right? (Tonight on NBC.)

4. So You Think You Can Dance. The season finale. We know what happens to Idol winners, but what happens to the winners of this show? (Wednesday at 8 on FOX.)

5. I Want To Work For Diddy. I'm not saying that. It's the name of a new reality show. (Premieres tonight at 9 on VH-1.)

6. Million Dollar Listing. One of the stars was arrested last week, just before the second season premiere. There's no such thing as bad publicity, as the saying goes. (Tuesday at 11 on Bravo.)

Diddy really needs a good assistant

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 8th 2008 9:23AM
Diddy in a suitHopefully, the hip-hop mogul will get one on VH1's I Want To Work for Diddy premiering this summer. Apparently, Diddy's staff is not doing their jobs. He was almost snubbed from his own party this weekend. He hosted a bash at Lily Pond in the Hamptons and almost didn't get in because the club was at capacity with over 1,000 people ready to get drunk and crunk with the rapper.

The artist-formerly-known-as-Puffy was denied his grand entrance (a three car procession of Cadillac Escalades). The fleet was forced to turn around and the Making the Band host had to go in the back door. Once he got in the club, the DJ turned off the music for fifteen minutes while the V.I.P. room was readied for his highness. That will show everyone a good time. Don't do the grand entrance. Just turn off the music and make everyone wait so you can get settled.

See, if he only had a good assistant... Hopefully, he'll find what he's looking for on his new VH1 show. I Want to Work for Diddy comes out in August.

Don't we already have enough dance competition shows?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 25th 2006 8:29AM
If FOX's So You Think You Can Dance, televised ballroom dancing, and the new talent show America's Got Talent isn't enough dancing for you, MTV and Sean 'Diddy' Combs are teaming to create a new street dancing reality show that will air on the network. Says Combs:

"This show will showcase the drive, determination, and expression of this dance generation - picture Rocky, but with dance troupes."

Um, wasn't that Staying Alive?
