Caitlyn On Kimmel Was An Enjoyable And Interesting Interview

It was bound to happen; just about every star member of the Kardashian and Jenner reality TV families has been a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Now it was Caitlyn Jenner’s turn, and last evening, she brought her A-game to late night TV, reports ABCNews. Dressed in a lipstick red blouse, black suede pants and high-heeled pumps, Caitlyn walked onstage to huge applause from the audience.

Caitlyn and Kimmel got along well, but she knew her moment was now to confront the funny TV host about the brutal late night jokes targeting her before her transition into a woman.

Caitlyn told Kimmel that she was being “hammered” by the media everywhere and going through a difficult time alone. Kimmel apologized and revealed that folks really didn’t know if the Bruce Jenner transition into Caitlyn was a real journey at first and whether the former Olympic decathlete was just acting vain.

Caitlyn graciously accepted Kimmel’s apology, and the two enjoyed a fascinating discussion. Check out this YouTube clip with Caitlyn explaining how she got caught when secretly dressing up as a woman, her faith and the apology from Jimmy Kimmel.

Kimmel and Caitlyn shared lighter moments and talked about Caitlyn’s Olympic achievements and winning the gold medal for the 10 track and field sports in the 2-day 1976 event.

Those include the 100-meter dash, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400-meter run, 110-meter hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin and 1,500-meter run.

Kimmel asked Caitlyn about the most difficult sport in the decathlon. She told him that it was getting into the mindset of becoming the best all-around athlete for the one big event. It involved strength, speed and the technical aspects.

Caitlyn Jenner was on Kimmel to promote her book, The Secrets Of My Life.

Jimmy Kimmel Asks Gays “What’s Straightest Thing You’ve Ever Done?” In Honor Of LGBTQ Pride Month

June happens to LGBTQ Pride Month, an annual anti-discrimination effort made official in 2014 with a proclamation from then President Obama. By the way, we all know LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. The added Q letter is now used and stands for either “questioning” or “queer.”

Young people have come to embrace the word “queer” and taken it back as a respected word. Years ago, “queer” was used in a perjorative manner against the gay community.

TV host Jimmy Kimmel of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” did something unique and hilarious in honor of Gay Pride Month, and people can’t stop buzzing about it. He sent a reporter to West Hollywood with one question in mind:

“What’s the straightest thing you’ve ever done?”

Gay people took the question with a good sense of humor. Some of the replies were sensible and others crazy.

For example, one gentleman says the straightest thing he ever did was “baled hay.” Another answered that he went to a Dodgers game and didn’t know what was going on. One woman said that at age 16 before she came out to her relatives, the straightest thing she ever did was go to a Barnes & Noble store with her family.

One gentleman said,”I’ve never done anything straight,” and the audience howled with laughter.

Perhaps the heartiest response came when a young man told the Jimmy Kimmel Live! reporter that the straightest thing he ever did was “dated a girl.” When she then asked him what the gayest thing he had ever done, he answered, “F—ed a guy.”

It was all in good fun and a clever way to celebrate LGBTQ people around the world.

Hats off to Jimmy Kimmel for keeping it real and respecting all people who choose to be themselves.

In the meantime, Ivanka Trump has shown her celebration of June’s Gay Pride Month with a tweet, saying she is proud to support her friends in the LGBTQ community and those LGBTQ Americans who have contributed tremendously to society and the economy in the United States.

Unfortunately, there has been no official White House statement commemorating LGBT Pride Month.

Zac Efron Talks Madonna Ringside And Baywatch Movie Sequel On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

When Zac Efron is a late night guest, then you know the women in the audience are going wild.

 

That’s exactly what happened when Jimmy Kimmel Live! recently had the handsome actor take a seat next to Jimmy Kimmel. Cat-calls were going off for just about everything the “Baywatch” movie sequel star spoke about during the interview.

 

Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he thought the vocal female audience members were into him when he walked out for his monologue, but he realized the ladies were actually in the house for the appearance of Zac Efron.

 

Jimmy Kimmel told the star that he had seen him on television next to Madonna at the UFC fight at Madison Square Garden. He wanted to know if the two had hooked up and how he happened to be seated ringside with the iconic singer for the Conor McGregor fight.

 

Zac Efron explained that he’s a huge fan of McGregor’s and followed the assigned labeled seats until he found his name. He passed by several major stars’ names and finally found his seat in the front row, right next to Madonna and no other seat open after that.

 

Zac Efron couldn’t believe he was sitting elbow to elbow with Madonna, but it was a cool coincidence and he enjoyed her company.

 

Madonna knows a lot about MMA and was totally into the fight, Zac Efron says.

 

Jimmy Kimmel pressed him for romantic details. He says Madonna only tapped him on the arm.

 

 

The Real Reason Matthew McConaughey Doesn’t Answer to “Matt”

On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the hilarious late night host interviewed Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Matthew McConaughey. McConaughey came on the show to promote his newest film, Gold. In the movie, McConaughey plays a businessman down on his luck who teams up with a geologist and discovers a huge gold deposit in the jungles of Indonesia. The film is based on the true story of the Bre-X mining scandal that occurred in 1993.

 

In true Jimmy Kimmel style, though, the host had a more random and interesting question to ask the actor. Most people who are named Matthew go by the nickname Matt, so Kimmel asked McConaughey if he ever answers to that name. McConaughey said he does not and the reason why reaches all the way back to his childhood. When McConaughey was a kid, he was playing at school with a new friend who addressed him as “Matt” and asked if he wanted to play on the monkey bars. McConaughey agreed when suddenly he was grabbed by the shoulders. His mother, who was also his kindergarten teacher, scolded him for answering to the nickname. She said “Don’t you ever answer to Matt again. I named you Matthew from the Bible.” He listened to his mother and has gone by his full name ever since.

 

Jimmy Kimmel Live! Going Bananas Over President Trump And The Hatchimals

You could say, that late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel is knocking his shows out of the ballpark this week. He’s on fire, and this time zeroing in on the hot Christmas toy, the Hatchimal and of course, the country’s new President Donald Trump.

 

There is actually a class action-lawsuit against the Hatchimals maker, because some parents claim these toys are not hatching as advertised. The $80 Hatchimal is the fuzzy interactive toy that hatches out of an egg. Apparently, angry moms and dads believe an unhatched Hatchimal is terrible for a young child, causing frustration, tears and disappointment.

 

Parents claim their kids followed the instructions included in the packaging in attempts to hatch the toy but to no avail. The creatures remain in their eggs, unhatched.

 

Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at the toy, creating a spoof, The Disappointamals. Watch the hilarious sketch here on YouTube.

 

Jimmy Kimmel also nailed President Trump in this too funny spoof trailer, as seen here on YouTube. The trailer has fun with the number one movie in America, The Split. The flick is about a kidnapper with multiple personalities. Except in Jimmy Kimmel’s Split 2, a sequel to the movie, he features President Trump in the lead role.

 

In the real movie thriller, The Split, actor James McAvoy plays the role of a man with 23 personalities. In Jimmy Kimmel’s trailer, Trump also has 23 personalities. The funny bit is less than 2 minutes long but knee-slapping and a must-see.
