The ban stems from Fox’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in September 2005; a moment in which the late night talk show host thought Fox was on drugs.
And the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star wouldn’t have it any other way. To hear her tell it, her past as asn exotic dancer could provide the edge she needs to walk away with the disco ball. Continue reading
*Congress may wanna look to Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel for some inspiration these days.
After a Twitter war resulting from a sketch mocking West, the two sat down face to face Wednesday night on Kimmel’s show and had a civil conversation in which ‘Ye calmly explained to Kimmel why his “creative genius” should not be mocked.
West, per The Hollywood Reporter, said he’d been frustrated with the press in general, a.k.a., “Every person who feels it’s ok to treat celebrities like zoo animals.”
Kimmel told West: A lot of times, I think you bring it on yourself, this kind of misunderstanding about you. …A lot of people think you’re a jerk and I often in my own personal conversations say ‘no, I know this guy, he is not a jerk’.”
West said: “I’m totally weird. I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes. For me to say I wasn’t a genius — I would just be lying to you and to myself,” he said.
The whole Kanye/Kimmel feud started when the late night host recreated the video of ‘Ye’s Radio 1 interview with the BBC’s Zane Lowe, using two children as Kanye and Zane. After being mocked in the video, which went viral last month, Kanye posted on Twitter: “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years.” The rapper then wrote a number of further tweets, criticizing the Kimmel and the sketch.
On Wednesday, both assured viewers that their beef was not a publicity stunt.
West told Kimmel of the Zane interview: “I was really vocal about a lot of things that I’ve been dealing with over the past ten years when I was put in the classification of ‘just a celebrity.’
“I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but my intention is always positive.”
Later on, Kimmel gave West, 36, a tiny leather jogging pants for his baby, North West, with Kim Kardashian. If you recall, in the Zane interview, West ranted about Fendi having the audacity to turn down his idea for leather jogging pants.
Ironically, West admitted he hadn’t even watched Kimmel’s BBC mockery in full before attacking the late-night host.

However, it appears they’ve either made up or called a truce or are ready to explain the whole thing was not a hoax. So, Tuesday evening, Kimmel took to his personal Twitter account to make the announcement that Kanye will be appearing on his ABC late night talk show Wednesday night:
*Earlier today (Tuesday) we reported that Vivica A. Fox had gone on the Bethenny Frankel Show on Monday and ended up bawling about the broken engagement between herself and her much younger ex-fiance’… Atlanta party promoter Omar “Slim” White. Well, of course Slim saw the show and has responded to Anntie Viv’s crocodile tears. See it here.
According to Rhymes with Snitch, he posted this note to his social media followers:
“People dont know that we spoke a few months ago and it was all love… She just didn’t answer those questions right this morning lol she know what she doing.”
“We are living separately and we are much happier this way.”
Well, if they’re happier living apart, God Bless ‘em. And yes, we know. You couldn’t care less.
Kinda makes you wonder how the split will impact their reality show.
“What’s in a name? When it comes to the debate over health care, apparently a lot,” Steve Liesman reported Thursday for CNBC, according to Journal-isms.
“In CNBC’s third-quarter All-America Economic Survey, we asked half of the 812 poll respondents if they support Obamacare and the other half if they support the Affordable Care Act.”
“First thing: 30 percent of the public don’t know what ACA is, vs. only 12 percent when we asked about Obamacare. More on that later.”
“Now for the difference: 29 percent of the public supports Obamacare compared with 22 percent who support ACA. Forty-six percent oppose Obamacare and 37 percent oppose ACA. So putting Obama in the name raises the positives and the negatives. Gender and partisanship are responsible for the differences. Men, independents and Republicans are more negative on Obamacare than ACA. Young people, Democrats, nonwhites and women are more positive on Obamacare. . . .”
In a Pew Research survey last month of 1,506 people conducted with USA Today, “A stunning 91 percent of the black Americans who responded said they approved of Obamacare while only 29 percent of whites did.”
Meanwhile, on that note. Sorta. Talk show host and funnyman Jimmy Kimmel decided to add his two cents as to the “Obamacare versus the Affordable Care Act” debate.
“They’re the same thing,” noted Kimmel during his opening monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night. And of course that was his cue for the fun to begin.
Kimmel sent a crew out on the streets of Hollywood to get reactions from people who had no clue that Obamacare IS the Affordable Care Act.
*Rapper Kanye West claims a photographer trespassed in his driveway yesterday morning and wants to press criminal charges against him.
West and girlfriend Kim Kardashian were leaving the home to catch a flight to Paris when they were approached by the photogs.
When one of the camera guys crossed over into his driveway, West asked, “Are you inside my garage?” before muttering, “I’ma change all this.”West also called the photographers “blood sucking mosquitoes,” and demands that they “shut the f— up!”
He then advises, “Pick a profession with some type of respect to it!”
As you may recall West has a long brewing hate-hate relationship with paparazzi. He is facing battery for his scuffle with a pap back in July. West is claiming self-defense.
