Billy Bush continued the joke and asked Jennie if her kids are into "9021-HO." "My 14 year-old just started watching it, but we don't call it '9021-HO' or whatever," Garth answered back.

Alec Baldwin Talks About His Axed Emmys Sketch & Schweddy Balls Ice Cream (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 19th 2011 3:55PM
Alec Baldwin wasn't at the Emmys on Sunday night, but he still managed to occupy some of the spotlight. Word leaked out before the ceremony that the '30 Rock' actor had originally been slated to be in the Emmys opening montage, but dropped out of the sketch when Fox execs nixed a News Corp. joke about the phone hacking scandal. Baldwin went on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about that, and the new Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls Flavor, inspired by an 'SNL' sketch he starred in as Pete Schweddy.

On the Emmys sketch, Baldwin said he thought News Corp. might have some sense of humor about the scandal, but when they didn't, he simply asked that his bit be removed from the sketch. His part was replaced by Leonard Nimoy, and Baldwin was perfectly cool with that.

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.'"

Chaz Bono and Billy Bush do 'Chaz Hands' on 'Access Hollywood Live'An early rehearsal tape of Chaz Bono on 'Dancing With the Stars' captured Billy Bush's imagination, and set him on a quest to emulate Bono's moves on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC). Thursday, Kit Hoover caught up with Bono in the thick of another dance rehearsal, and his moves are catching on there, too.

"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.

Hill Harper talks about Barack Obama on 'Access Hollywood Live'Hill Harper and Barack Obama went to Harvard together, and wound up acting on 'CSI:NY' and the President of the United States, respectively. So you might not imagine they had too many classes together. But Harper said on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) that he actually got to know Obama in college.

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."

Billy Bush does his best Chaz Bono on 'Access Hollywood Live'Billy Bush has been enchanted by Chaz Bono's dancing since he first saw a clip of it early this week. Thursday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), Bush did his best impression of 'The Chaz,' and he and Kit Hoover got ready for the new 'Dancing' season by speaking with Valentin Chmerkovskiy, who's paired with Elisabetta Canalis in the competition.

Hoover wanted to know if the uncomfortable, often revealing costumes made it difficult to focus. "Sometimes it can get a little difficult to focus but honestly, it's more difficult to focus for her," he said, referring to his partner. His brother Maksim is also a staple of the show, but has never won. Which means there's a little more on the line for Valentin. "We have a lot of family back home, I have to redeem our name a little bit," he said.

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.

'Access Hollywood Live' Looks at the Final 'Lopez Tonight' (VIDEO)

Eva Longoria and George Lopez on the Final 'Lopez Tonight' on 'Access Hollywood Live'Thursday night marked the end of the line for George Lopez on 'Lopez Tonight,' and Friday, 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) devoted a considerable amount of time to clips from the show. The main guest on the final 'Lopez Tonight' was Eva Longoria, and she and Lopez had a loose and open conversation about the end of the show. After the clips, Brian Williams gave his opinion on who might replace Lopez in the late night slot.

Lopez asked Longoria about her "wardrobe malfunction" on Letterman in April, when a button popped loose on an already revealing top. Nothing improper actually got shown, but Longoria said it was the most downloaded video of the month. "Maybe if I did that here, we would still be on," said Longoria. Lopez suggested in might not be too late. Longoria also noted that when the show started, she and Lopez were both employed and married, and now they are both divorced and jobless.

Billy Bush and Kit Hoover Analyze the 'Lopez Tonight' Cancelation (VIDEO)

George Lopez and 'Lopez Tonight' not renewed on 'Access Hollywood Live'If you're looking for well-researched, cogent analysis and conclusions concerning TBS's decision not to renew 'Lopez Tonight' for a third season, watching Billy Bush and Kit Hoover spitball theories on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) might not be what you're looking for. They showed a clip of George Lopez announcing the decision Wednesday night, and then hypothesized reasons it might have happened.

"So hey, did you guys see the news?" Lopez said on his show. "Unemployment is at an all-time high and for Latinos, it just got a little higher." Bush thought it might just be that TBS is a difficult station to find. He shouted out to the live audience to see who know what station it was. "I think it's a legitimate point," he said. "I think it's hard to find. I don't know, it's like two-fif- I really don't know. 252 maybe? Something like that?"

Snooki and Pauly D on 'Access Hollywood Live'MTV's 'Jersey Shore' Season 4 promo includes a scene where where Ronnie and The Situation get into an intense-looking situation. Perhaps to avoid confusion, Pauly D, Snooki, Billy Bush, and Kit Hoover called The Situation "Sitch" on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC). So what really happened in the Florence throwdown? Pauly D tried to stay vague on the details, but let a crucial clue slip.

"It was just some built up stuff," he said of the fight. "This has been built up for awhile. They had some tension, we had to just let them release it. We had to just let them do what they had to do." Asked if alcohol was involved with the fight, Pauly said, "Always. A little bit."

He then added this bit of intrigue, when Bush asked if Ronnie had actually clobbered Sitch, or if perhaps Sitch was being overdramatic. "You'd be surprised at what actually hit Sitch," said Pauly. Not who hit Sitch, but what hit Sitch. We're intrigued.
