Did 'So You Think You Can Dance' Uncover the 'Real' Ringo Starr? (VIDEO)

the In a story that just got more and more bizarre the deeper Cat Deeley and the folks behind 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) dug into it, a competing hopeful claimed to be the daughter of the "real" Ringo Starr.

Well, with a claim like that, we can't blame the show for sending a camera crew to her home town to meet the legend himself. Once there, we were introduced to an older gentleman with virtually no trace of a British accent who claims to be the original Ringo Starr.

He said he played on four albums and, according to his daughter, went into hiding "after John Lennon was shot three times in the back."

Paul McCartney visits The Late Show

It's hard to believe but last night was the first time that Paul McCartney was on The Late Show with David Letterman.

As Letterman says in the clip below, they had been trying to get him for 15 years with no success. McCartney had been in the studio before, of course, as a member of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 (and once for MTV), but this was his first time on Dave's show. He talks about coming to America back then and what the other band members were like.

(Here's video of the performance from McCartney and his band.)

TV Squad Ten: Stars who should have been roasted Instead of Larry the Cable Guy

Ah, the celebrity roast. Comedy Central resurrected the tried and true comedian ass-kiss off with hilarious specials featuring Denis Leary, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget and William #*$&$ing Shatner. Then came the capper: a roast of music legend Willie Nelson. It was a shift in evolution so great, it could have made Charles Darwin buy into the theory of intelligent design.

Then the network caused a global groan so loud that it shifted the tectonic plates when they announced that Nelson had to cancel and they would replace him with Larry the Cable Guy.

It's such an obvious and safe choice that might be a good recipe for ratings, but it's a sure fire recipe for boring. Here are the iconic stars who would have made much better kindling for a white hot comedy roast.

Ringo Starr walks off Regis and Kelly

Regis and KellyIf you tuned into Live with Regis & Kelly this morning expecting to see Ringo Starr perform his new single, then you were probably disappointed. He walked off the set before the show started.

Starr thought he was going to be able to perform the entire "Liverpool 8" song without editing (talk shows often need a shorter version of the song to fit their time schedule). He actually tried to cut the 4 minute, 15 second song down to the required 2 minute, 30 seconds, but found that he couldn't do it and still have the song be worth hearing, so he decided not to appear on the show at all.

Larry King confuses Ringo Starr with George Harrison

Larry KingMore ammo for the "Larry King should retire" crowd.

On last night's show, King was interviewing Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and during the interview, during a segment where they talked about what they were doing when John Lennon was killed, he turned to Starr and asked "George, where were you?" McCartney didn't want to let the matter drop, but Ringo just laughed it off. Harrison, of course, is dead.
