Jimmy Kimmel didn’t let Jay Leno’s “sucker punch” allegation go unanswered. On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ Jimmy hit back.
Did you get a chance to see Jay on Oprah? Did he redeem himself in your eyes at all? It felt a little off to me, although I can’t put my finger on why…
Here are a couple more clips of Jay’s interview on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ from yesterday.
Jay explained what was happening behind the scenes at NBC that led to his retirement announcement in 2004:

Jay Leno Says Jimmy Kimmel “Sucker Punched” Him On Air
Remember when I was wondering if Jimmy Kimmel’s jabs at Jay Leno were planned or not? Well, I guess the answer is no, from what Jay told Oprah Winfrey.
“I got sucker-punched,” he said. Leno said he could have edited the interview, “but I said, ‘No. Put it out there. I walked into it.’” He said when you get hit, “You get right up again. You don’t whine and complain.”
Jay also told Oprah he was upset six years ago when NBC told him they wanted Conan O’Brien to replace him as ‘The Tonight Show’ host in 2009.
“It broke my heart, it really did. I was devastated…I most certainly did,” feel disrespected.
Jay said he told “a little white lie on the air” that he was going to retire to justify NBC’s decision to name Conan as ‘The Tonight Show’ host back in 2004.
Most of you seem to be pretty solidly Team CoCo. Are you even interested in seeing Jay on ‘The Oprah Winfrey’ show? Here’s a clip:
Is there anything he could say that would redeem himself in your eyes?

Brooke Mueller’s Friends Brought Her Drugs In The Hospital
If this Radar Online story is true, then Brooke Mueller really needs help. If it’s true. So, according to Radar Online, Brooke’s substance abuse had gotten so bad, people tried to bring her drugs in the hospital while she was battling an infection and pneumonia.
Her lifestyle was so out of control that friends tried to bring her drugs while she was hospitalized during the past several days, a source familiar with the entire situation told RadarOnline.com.
Apparently, while Brooke was in the hospital, she was told to go directly to rehab. Initially people close to her planned to put her in a rehab in California, but it was concerned that treatment details would leak, so they selected a facility in North Carolina.
Now, Brooke’s attorney denied the she was seeking treatment for substance abuse issues, but the sources disputed that claim.
Brooke was still recovering from an infection and pneumonia. But Mueller and people close to her agreed to take the risk of the cross-country plane trip to get her help and keep it secret. If she was merely at a spa, resting and relaxing as Galanter has said, she could have easily done that in California.
“His story is ridiculous and completely transparent,” one source said of Galanter [Brooke's attorney].
I did wonder why Brooke would fly across the country to convalesce!
A physician told Radar Online that patients recovering from pneumonia generally shouldn’t fly because of breathing concerns.

Michael Jackson’s Children To Perform At Grammy Awards?
just talked to the exec prod of @thegrammys…hearing MJs kids may sing. Also Mary J & Andrea Bocelli dueting for Haiti.
Wow. I really wonder if this is true. Michael was so fiercely protective of these kids and tried so hard to keep them out of the spotlight. I’m floored over the possibility of his kids up there singing for the world to see. I doubt this would’ve been his wish.
What do you think about it? Maybe they are just trying to drum up buzz (aka big viewing numbers) for the awards show?

Is Tommy Mottola Set To Replace Simon Cowell On ‘American Idol’?
Rumors are floating around today that music mogul Tommy Mottola, also know as Mariah Carey’s ex-husband, is being considered to take over Simon Cowell’s chair on ‘American Idol’.
An inside source says:
“Both X Factor and Idol are interested in working with Tommy,” the source said. “Nothing has been decided but they are talking. He’s a shrewd negotiator and a legendary music impresario who has a great ear and instinctively knows talent. He is the perfect person for something like this.”
Another “Idol” source claims that a replacement has not yet been found:
“No one has been offered a judging [position] on American Idol yet and there are no front-runners either. They have a lot of time to go over their options.”
Tommy is responsible for discovering talent like Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, and many others while he was an executive head at Sony Music Entertainment. He’s currently married to Mexican pop star Thalia.
He would make an interesting choice, wouldn’t he? I’m guessing they would have to forget Mariah doing any guest appearances?
