Kelly Ripa Gets Raunchy in 'Live' Thanksgiving Gadget Segment (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 23rd 2011 1:15PM
Over the past few years, Kelly Ripa was often Regis Philbin's voice of reason, reeling in the old cad when he went too far off the deep end. But now that he's gone, Ripa's letting it all hang out. In a 'Live! With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) segment spotlighting some wacky Thanksgiving gadgets, Ripa donned a red-wine-filled bra and joked about a possible alternate use for a Robo-Stirrer.

As resident technology expert David Pogue introduced the Robo-Stirrer, which can robotically stir a pot as it simmers. "Once you take off the soup, it makes a "darn fine back-massager," he said, to which Kelly jokingly replied, "Allright ladies, well I think we all know what's that code for." Pogue was horrified, yelling out, "Oh my god!" and even Jerry Seinfeld seemed taken aback. All the comedian could muster was, "That's the first time someone in Manhattan has said 'darn fine,' but let's keep going."

When Kim Cattrall stopped by 'Live With Kelly!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Kelly Ripa ask her the obligatory 'Sex and the City' movie question. Even though the latest film was panned by critics, Ripa spoke for die-hard 'Sex and the City' fanwomen everywhere, who are still clamoring for another installment in the series. Cattrall joked that the actors "are always the last to know," but said she'd love to do another movie, because she has so much fun making them.

That's when guest-host Jerry Seinfeld cut in, and pointed out some similarities between 'Seinfeld' and 'Sex and the City.' "I always felt like there was a certain similarity ... and I mean this in a good way ... Sarah Jessica and I were kind of like the hub of the wheel, and then you had these other eccentric characters, and you were kind of the the Kramer of the show."

Jerry Seinfeld Asks New Yorkers Who Should Replace Regis (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 21st 2011 5:30PM
Today began a new era in daytime TV, as 'Live With Regis and Kelly' became 'Live With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) in the wake of Regis Philbin's retirement. Kelly was joined by Jerry Seinfeld, who's serving as her temporary co-host. "I feel very honored that you invited me ... to be the first person to be part of Operation Smooth Transition," he said early in the show. And although Regis' absence has left 'Live' with an identity crisis, Seinfeld, at least today, capably filled the void.

But the question of Kelly's permanent co-host still needs to be answered. Jerry took to the streets, hoping the people of New York might have the answer, but everyone he asked suggested he take the job permanently. "Who that we could afford?" he quipped. When the next person insisted that he would be a good fit, Jerry jokingly caved. "Alright, I'll take it."

It's Regis Philbin's Last Day on 'Live!' -- Now He Wants to Host 'SNL'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 18th 2011 7:45AM
Today is Regis Philbin's last day co-hosting 'Live! With Regis and Kelly,' but it seems as though thoughts of retirement are still far from the 80 year-old's mind. Talking to reporters after Thursday's show he said "I feel pretty good," but he did admit that he may not feel quite so good next week when the show carries on without him.

"I wasn't looking forward to this moment," said Philbin. "You never are in your life when you're leaving a success that you worked your tail off to make." However, the hardest working man in television won't be idle for long. He's embarking next week on a US book tour to promote his new memoir, 'How I Got This Way,' and he's already been toying with the idea of making his own reality show.

However, he told 'The New York Times' that what he'd really, really like to do is host 'Saturday Night Live.' Saying it would be "irresistible" if he got the call, Philbin quipped "It's come up in my mind, but not theirs. I think the audience for that show would rather have some young guy playing a vampire somewhere."

Jerry SeinfeldJerry Seinfeld will be the first guest co-host on 'Live! With Kelly' when the show switches to a Regis Philbin-less format.

Philbin leaves 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on Fri., Nov. 18 and the show will transition to 'Live! With Kelly' as it searches for a permanent co-host. A similar format was followed when Kathie Lee Gifford left the series in 2000.

"Jerry is a great friend of ours, and a friend of Kelly's, and it doesn't hurt that he's an entertainment icon," Michael Gelman, 'Live!' executive producer, said in a statement. "It's a great way to kick off the new beginning of our show."

And he used the most abrupt and startling therapy methods known to modern medicine ... and barbaric medicine as well. He slapped sense into Stewart when he couldn't control his urges to crack jokes about Bachmann's dance moves or his speaking voice.

Former 'Marriage Ref' Contestant Blames Show, Jerry Seinfeld for His Divorce (VIDEO)

Howie Kohlenberg claims 'The Marriage Ref' ruined his marriage on 'Good Morning America''The Marriage Ref' is supposed to settle disputes between married couples, but according to former contestant Howie Kohlenberg, it broke his marriage apart. Kohlenberg appeared Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) and blamed the show and its creator, Jerry Seinfeld, for his divorce. After getting a taste of fame from appearing on the show's debut episode, Kohlenberg said that his then-wife's Christine's behavior began to change for the worse.

"They were saying how Christine looked so great and her lips were beautiful and all of a sudden she's getting a really big head, she's doing some Botox, she wants to do Playboy," said Kohlenberg. After the show, she left Kohlenberg and their four-and-a-half-year old son to go to Hollywood, he said.

Seinfeld's reaction to the story, which was quoted in the Daily News, was a less-than-apologetic "Love it!" The couple initially went on 'The Marriage Ref' to get publicity for their spa business, which, like their marriage, is now defunct.

'The Marriage Ref' season premiere'The Marriage Ref' (Sun., 10PM ET on NBC) returned with a slightly tweaked format this season. Now, the couples are brought into the studio, and the audience gets to pick which person was the most right and that person will get a billboard in their hometown telling everyone they were right. Oh, and they'll also pocket a cool $25,000.

The most memorable of the three couples was definitely the Johnsons. The wife was frustrated because of her husbands obsession with all things pumpkins, including growing gigantic ones and even naming them.

The celebrities were on his side, though Jerry Seinfeld told him to do something about how ugly they look when they get so big.

100 Most Powerful Celebrities List: Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted May 19th 2011 8:00AM
Bethenny FrankelForbes has published its annual list of the 100 Most Powerful Celebrities List, and this year it contains a few shockers: Oprah's been knocked off the top spot, there's a teenager in the Top 3, and reality star Bethenny Frankel makes the cut.

Oprah Winfrey's ceded poll position to Lady Gaga, despite earning roughly three times as much.

Gaga's moved up from No. 4 on the list, which measures celebrity power through a combination of entertainment-related earnings, media visibility and social media popularity.

Although 'Forbes' estimated Gaga's earnings in the last year as $90 million -- as opposed to Oprah's mighty $290 million -- it also noted the huge importance of her 32 million Facebook fans and 10 million Twitter followers.

'Forbes' editor Dorothy Pomerantz explained that, "Lady Gaga beat Oprah this year because of her social media power. She can use Twitter and Facebook to work the 'little monsters' into a frenzy that leads to record sales and media attention. She's the best example of how celebrities will need to manage their careers in the coming years."

Despite being the co-creator and star of arguably the greatest sitcom of all time, Jerry Seinfeld doesn't actually enjoy watching himself on 'Seinfeld.'

"I don't really, in fact I don't at all," he told AOL TV sister site PopEater of watching his show. "I think because as much as I enjoy the humor of it, it kind of reminds me of how hard it was to do. I can't seem to get that part out of my head and just enjoy the show, but I'm working on it because I would like to watch them more. When I watch them, I see my face and I see how I was struggling."

Ricky Gervais, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock & Louis C.K., 'Talking Funny'While on the surface, 'Talking Funny' (Fri., 9PM ET on HBO) may seem similar to what was happening on 'Green Room with Paul Provenza,' but this special seemed to be even more raw and honest. Perhaps it was the absence of the audience, or the level of the comedians on the show -- Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock and Louis C.K. There was just something fascinating about this discussion.

These are masters at their craft, and as revealed throughout the hour, they're also very different in what they do and even why they do it. No stone was left unturned in dissecting how they approach their comedy, nor was any topic off-limits. They even got into a lengthy debate about the N-word.

Seinfeld, Rock, Gervais and Louis CK Are 'Talking Funny' for HBO, Plus an Exclusive Preview

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 19th 2011 10:00AM
E.B White famously summed up the general attitude toward analyzing humor when he compared it to dissecting a frog: "Few people are interested and the frog dies of it."

'Talking Funny' (Friday, April 22, 9PM ET on HBO) avoids killing the frog by taking four of the biggest stand-up comedians in the business -- Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais and Louis CK -- and putting them in a casual setting to interview each other.



Comedy nerds will be satisfied with the level of details, and casual fans will be happy to hear the big names swap stories. The quartet shareS a certain amount of familiarity, with CK being the common connection between them. He wrote the screenplay for the Rock vehicle 'I Think I Love My Wife,' played a supporting role in Gervais's 'The Invention of Lying' and, as Louis mentions in the special, angered Seinfeld when opening for him in Boston years ago. Louis was still making a name for himself, and he introduced Seinfeld as the best comic in the world, something that automatically set up expectations Seinfeld then had to meet.

Jerry Seinfeld with Regis Philbin and Kelly RipaThe surprises continued today on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (Weekdays, Syndicated). Yesterday, Regis's old friend David Letterman dropped by the set with flowers and champagne. Today's mystery guest was Jerry Seinfeld, who arrived bearing a giant cupcake with the number 10 on top to celebrate the show's ten year anniversary.

Seinfeld explained he did not make it himself. "I got it from Crumbs on Amsterdam Avenue," he said. Kelly Ripa called it a "mega cupcake."

After giving his congratulations, Seinfeld got right to the point. "Let's eat this!" he said. They agreed to eat it all together at the same time, and counted down from three before each took a huge bite. That left Philbin with a generous mouthful of frosting and cake to deal with as he threw to a commercial. But Reeg being the profession that he is, every word was clear. Who after Regis will bravely facedown cupcakes and still keep perfect diction?
