Olivia Munn on 'Access Hollywood Live'Olivia Munn showed off some of her more bad-ass skills on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), doing a little beatboxing and talking about getting her motorcycle license. Though it doesn't sound like she'll be touring with Jeezy any time soon, and she might not wind up getting to ride that bike.

"I'm super careful," she said. "But I asked, because I'm on the new Aaron Sorkin show for HBO and I asked Aaron, 'Am I allowed to ride motorcycles or do you guys have in my contract that I can't?' And he said, 'Oh, you can ride them, but if you get hurt, we can fire you.'"

"We are obsessed with this," Hoover told Bono and his dance partner, Lacey Schwimmer, showing them the rehearsal tape. "We call it 'The Chaz Hands.' Now I'm no coach, I don't know these things, but if you can bring what we saw in that video -- it's infectious, it's fun."

Jay Mohr takes a shot at Billy Bush on 'Access Hollywood Live'If you're going to take a shot at Jay Mohr, don't do it while he's sitting less than an arm's length away from you. Billy Bush learned that Wednesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) when he talked about seeing Mohr appear on 'The View' in a yellow shirt that made him look "like a Peep," one of those little marshmallow confections that pop up around Easter. Mohr got gave Bush a shot to the groin after that jab.

Mohr was on 'Access' to promote his new show, 'Master Debaters,' a guy-oriented talk show. They showed a clip of Mohr disparaging Jennifer Aniston, and Bush said he shouldn't have picked on her. "Why not?" said Mohr. "She was mean to me. She made me cry." That was in 'Picture Perfect,' and, Bush pointed out, it was only a movie. "Not in between takes when she says, 'Six guys they screen-tested, the one guy I hate, he's the one they hired,'" Mohr said.

That's when Bush made his "Peep" comment, and Mohr gave him a shot under the table. The crew managed to isolate the shot from another camera angle, and replayed it as if it were a questionable touchdown. Which, in a way, it was.

Harper called Obama "a great guy" and said he's still the same person he was at Harvard. He especially praised his sense of humor. "I'll tell you, the thing I wish more people know about our president is seeing his sense of humor. Super funny, super fun. He is, he's very witty and he has this kind of really kind of acerbic kind of cool sense of humor."

Nicole Richie previews 'Fashion Star' on 'Access Hollywood Live'Nicole Richie has been a reality star, TV personality and author, but mentor? That may take some getting used to. Richie will be a fashion mentor on NBC's new show 'Fashion Star,' which has a twist to differentiate it from other fashion design reality competitions. Richie previewed the show Wednesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC).

On 'Fashion Star,' fourteen designers will compete to design collections for three retailers -- Macy's, H&M, and Saks. But unlike many shows where designers create high-end fashion garments more suited to a Siberian runway, the clothes have to be wearable and desirable to the general public. "Let's say H&M buys a designers collection for that week -- you can go to H&M and buy it the next day," Richie said.

Jenner is happy she and Kylie got to grow up without being the focus of a reality TV show. "We didn't even really want to be in it too much, like in the show too much," she said. "We were just not into it. We were in school, we wanted to be with our friends, have fun, play dates, whatever."

She also loves Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian's new husband, and Scott Disick, Kourtney's boyfriend/baby daddy. Both have a great sense of humor, according to Jenner, and she said Disick gets a bad rap. "I love him," she said. "He's hilarious. He's so fun. He's definitely changed since when we first met him."

Vienna Girardi talks about drinking on 'Bachelor Pad' on 'Access Hollywood Live'Take the feuds on 'Bachelor Pad' with a grain of salt, or, more appropriately, a lime and a salt-shaker. It's just the booze talking, according to Vienna Girardi. Girardi appeared on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about this week's episode, in which Erica Rose said some nasty things about her.

Girardi said she and Erica are now friends, but that only happened after this week's episode was taped. "She was just in Vegas this week with me this weekend where I lost my voice," said Girardi. "But I can say this -- alcohol. I'm blaming the Patron and the Jager on all the mean things that people say."

'Glee Project' winners Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty on 'Access Hollywood Live'The 'Glee Project' finale had a surprise ending when 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy revealed not one but two winners -- Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty. The pair appeared on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about their road to the finale, and what the win means to them.

The finale taped in April, which means Larsen and McGinty haven't been able to tell anyone about their win for months. "Oh, I told my mom and dad," said Larsen. "No, I mean, when they slap that kind of a contract in your face and tell you the consequences, you keep your mouth shut."

Larsen also said he had been tempted in the past to lose the dreads to get parts and pass auditions, but he's thankful he never cut them. "And I'm so glad I didn't because, you know, now it's kind of become a trademark thing," he said. McGinty was a bit more philosophical about the win. "To come out on top along with Samuel," he said, "you know, it proves the underdog can, you know -- which is what 'Glee's' about, which is even more incredible -- but it proves the underdog can come out on top."
