All the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities

fluffincolorThe Late Shift II: Conan the Leftoutinthecoldian – There really is one story in entertainment this week: Leno vs. O’Brien. In a redux of 1991’s decision to replace Johnny Carson withfluffernutter Jay Leno instead of heir apparent David Letterman, NBC announced is shaking up The Late Show, once again anointing Leno and leaving hair apparent O’Brien out in the cold.

Leno’s new 10PM show has bombed, and NBC announced they were moving Leno back to 11:30 with a new half-hour show. O’Brien balked at being moved to midnight, telling NBC to go letter their man. Leno will return to the Late Night fold, with Jimmy Kimmel retaining O’Briens old 12:30 slot. And O’Brien? It appears he will take heed of Leno’s advice to NBC when the story started to break last week and travel: Fox, he said, is beautiful this time of year.

Who the long term winner will be is anybody’s guess, but it seem likely there will be one long term loser: Leno’s reputation as a nice guy.

fluffincolorActor Antwon Tanner of the TV show One Tree Hill was sentenced to three months in prison, and five months of home release by a Brooklyn judge this week after he was convicted of dealing in stolen Social Security numbers. His lawyer, Gregory Watts, blamed it on “Stupidity.”

Well either that or moral turpitude.

fluffincolorSpeaking of the stupid defence, meet Danny Glover:

“What happened in Haiti could happen to anywhere in the Caribbean because all these island nations are in peril because of global warming.”

“When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m saying? We have to act now!”

The science is settled: tectonic plates don’t cause earthquakes, human CO2 emissions cause earthquakes.

The defence pleads stupid your honour.

fluffincolorTeddy Pendergrass (1950- 2010): Singer Teddy Pendergrass passed of colon cancer this week. The five time Grammy nominated singer was wheelchair bound since an automobile accident in 1982. I’ll personally always remember his very moving first post-accident performance at Live Aid in 1985.

RIP Teddy Pendergrass
