Jay Leno “Blindsided” by ‘Tonight Show’ Boot

Jay LenoJay Leno says he was "blindsided" when he was asked to leave The Tonight Show.

The 63 -year-old talk show host felt like he had been dumped by a girlfriend during his spat with NBC producers, who announced in 2004 that he would be leaving the show and replaced him with Conan O'Brien four years later.

During an interview with 60 Minutes set to air Sunday, Jay recalled, "I was blindsided ... [NBC executives said] 'You're out...' and I went, 'OK.' You know, you have a girl [who] says, 'I don't want to see you any more.' 'Why?' 'You know, she doesn't want to see you any more, OK?'"

Jay - who was later given his own primetime series The Jay Leno Show, which aired from September 2009 to February 2010 - believes he was unfairly deemed a villain when NBC asked him to resume his role on The Tonight Show to replace Conan, who quit after seven months following poor ratings. "I didn't quite understand that, but I never chose to answer any of those things or make fun of any other people involved, it's not my way," he said.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Affair Was Stupid

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Break-ups, Divorce,

Arnold SchwarzeneggerArnold Schwarzenegger admits having an affair with his housekeeper was the "stupidest thing" he ever did in his marriage.
The Expendables 2 star accepts he caused great pain to his now estranged wife Maria Shriver and their four children with his illicit romance, which led to Mildred Beana giving birth to his son Joseph 14 years ago.

"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship. It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids," he said in an interview with 60 Minutes, set to air this Sunday.

The former Governor of California is currently promoting his autobiography, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story and though he says Maria hasn't read the tell-all book, she wishes him the best. "I think that Maria is, you know, wishing me well in everything I do."

Mildred - who worked for Arnold's family for 20 years - had listed her ex-husband's name on Joseph's birth certificate and has previously said she only knew for certain who the boy's father was when he began to look increasingly like the actor. The affair was only revealed in May last year, days after Arnold and Maria announced they were separating after 25 years of marriage.

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Talk Shows, CBS, Gossip, Video,


May 1st, for late night fans, meant only one thing: Conan O’Brien’s vow of silence with NBC had expired. This weekend, he celebrated that holiday the way any star with something to say might: by giving a hard-hitting interview on national TV.

O’Brien has remained very tactful throughout the entire NBC late night debacle. He didn’t exactly take the gloves off during his time with , but he did make one thing pretty clear: he’s not happy with Jay Leno. “I do not think I will be hearing from him,” Conan said of his fellow late night host, who has now resumed his duties at The Tonight Show. “Who can say who won and who lost?” Conan asked. “I’m laughing ‘cause crying would be sad.”

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, CBS, News, Video,


Fans of Conan O’Brien probably aren’t used to seeing him on air at 7:00 in the evening. They also are probably not used to seeing him speak without a smile on his face.

During his first interview since leaving NBC, O’Brien carefully touches upon his experience at the Peacock network. (He is not legally allowed to disparage them.) He also offers a few words on his predecessor/successor.

“If I had surrendered and handed it over to somebody publicly and wished them well, uh…and then I would not have come back six months later… But that’s me, you know. Everyone’s got their own, you know, way of doing things,” Conan says in reference to .
