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.

 

 

Trudeau Responds to Perry’s Kimmel Interview

Late Night television is normally reserved for light-hearted banter between a comedian and their guests. In most cases, guests on the show are actors or musicians that are promoting upcoming shows or events. While commentary on these shows is normally light-hearted, one recent late night show has attracted the interest of a prominent international politician (http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/02/entertainment/trudeau-matthew-perry-rematch/).

 

During a recent interview on the Jimmy Kimmel show, actor Matthew Perry was questioned about his life and childhood. During the interview Perry stated that he know Justin Trudeau as a child. At the time, Trudeau’s father was the Prime Minister of Canada and Perry’s mother worked for him. Perry went on to state that when he was a child, he and a friend were jealous of Trudeau and beat him up because of it. They stated that the jealousy came from the fact that Trudeau was better at a sport than they were.

 

Since then, Justin Trudeau has climbed the ranks of the Canadian political system. He has also become the Prime Minister of Canada, following in his father’s footsteps. Not surprisingly, the story told by Perry went viral and was reported to Trudeau. While most people thought that the story was a joke or fabricated, Trudeau has confirmed the events. What surprised people even more is that Trudeau has stated that he would like to have the opportunity to fight Perry again.

 

Trudeau stated in a Tweet that he has thought about the interview a lot over the past few weeks and would now like to have a rematch against Perry. He further stated that he is likely not the only person that would want to hit Chandler. This was a reference to Matthew Perry’s most popular role as Chandler Bing on Friends. At this point it is not fully known whether this tweet was a joke, or if he would like to actually pursue another fight. Furthermore, it was pointed out that the tweet made by the Prime Minister was done on April 1. Therefore, there is a good chance that it was done as a joke to respond to the interview.

 

Jimmy Kimmel And Former President George W. Bush “Drawn” To Each Other

It might not have developed into a true bromance, but Jimmy Kimmel and former President George W. Bush had a ball on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” especially when the pair decided to sketch each other.

Bush was the late night TV host’s recent guest, and he was there to push his new book “Portrait of Courage.” The book is packed with portraits and stories of US veterans, and all proceeds from the book go to benefit veterans.

The former president appeared to have a wonderful sense of humor and agreed to sketch Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Kimmel would sketch Bush. Both gentlemen did a great job, and you can see their artwork here on YouTube.

The visit was an engaging one and touched upon a variety of topics, including comics making fun of presidents. It’s no secret that President Donald Trump is bothered by Alec Baldwin’s hilarious impersonation of him on SNL. In fact, Trump cannot stand Baldwin and told him the impersonation is lousy.

Bush found the impersonations of himself while in office hilarious and told Kimmel he wasn’t bothered by any of the lampooning.

“Not at all,” Bush quipped, saying that “the best humor is when you make fun of yourself.”

“Tell that to the president. He doesn’t think so,” Kimmel said, of overly-sensitive Trump.

Bush even had a favorite comedian who mimicked him during the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner, playing his alter ego. Bush said he thought the guy who played him best was Steve Bridges. “He’s dead,” Bush said.

Kimmel joked, hoping that the former president didn’t have anything to do with Bridges’ passing.

The former president told Kimmel that he was never an artist while growing up and had no interest in the pursuit, until after he left office.

George W. Bush Cracks Up Kimmel Crowd

Lately, it seems as if the darling of the talk show circuit is an unexpected one. Former President George W. Bush, who recently released a book of his paintings, has been taking to the late night shows to promote his book. Since the proceeds benefit veterans, it seems as if this is a win-win for everyone involved. The interview got off to a raucous start when Kimmel asked a question about the man that former Vice President Dick Cheney had accidentally shot while hunting. Bush joked that it had been a particularly unfortunate incident, since the man had been one of the greatest trial lawyers in Texas.

On a recent appearance with Jimmy Kimmel, Bush made light of his tendency to mix up words during his presidency, pointing out some of his most famous faux pas, such as “strategery” and “misunderestimate”. Kimmel asked Bush if he ever felt offended by some of the impressions of him, and Bush made it very clear that he did not take any of it personally. Also on the discussion agenda was the number of people at Bush’s inauguration. Although the two danced around comparisons to current White House occupant Donald Trump, it definitely seemed as if Trump’s short temper was the elephant in the room.

One of the most touching moments of the evening was when Bush pointed out the veterans in the audience that he had painted, one of whom was with his mother. Talking about his experience as a painter, Bush mentioned that he had initially become interested in the art form after reading an essay that Winston Churchill had written about painting. All in all, this was a very fun and enlightening interview.

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.

Kimmel’s Fred And Barney Cartoon of Trump/Bush Locker Room Convo Still Funny

If you’re too young to even remember the beloved American cartoon “The Flintstones,” that’s really alright. The history is not important; all you have to do is watch the new version.

 

Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel put together one of his hilarious, classic Kimmel Kartoons, featuring Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and entertainment personality Billy Bush. The spot is extremely funny and more so every time you re-watch it.

 

The Washington Post had recently released a behind-the-scenes video of the two men having a lewd conversation off-mic on the Access Hollywood bus in 2005. Trump had told Bush on tape that he had tried to have sex with the show’s married host Nancy O’Dell. He took her furniture shopping and tried to unsuccessfully make the moves on O’Dell. Trump also told Bush that when you’re famous and Donald Trump, you can grab women by their ladies’ parts. Billy Bush couldn’t control his laughter.

 

Jimmy Kimmel created his own version, taking the audio from what Trump told Bush on the Access Hollywood bus. Kimmel and crew then cleverly paired it with video from the Flintstones. It’s priceless, with Trump as Fred Flintstone and Billy Bush as Barney Rubble in the town of Bedrock.

 

The 30-second bit keeps growing in popularity. It’s now on YouTube, where almost 129,000 viewers have tuned in and can’t stop laughing.

 

Donald Trump has not made a comment about the Kimmel Kartoon and Billy Bush just lost his job at the Today Show.
