Jay Leno Signs Off ‘The Tonight Show’ for the Last Time in an Emotional Farewell … I Bid You All A Heartfelt Goodbye (VIDEO)
Last night Jay Leno signed off ‘The Tonight Show’ for the second and last time. In a gracious show of class he handed off the reins to Jimmy Fallon.
I must admit that no one did the ‘Tonight Show’ better than the late Johnny Carson, but Jay Leno did a damn remarkable job taking over for a legend. Last night he said goodbye. For 22 years Leno provided his monologue, Jaywalking and witty sense of humor in which he was #1 for 20 of those years.
“I don’t like goodbyes. NBC does, I don’t,” Leno joshed as he took the stage in beautiful downtown Burbank. “Well, tonight is our last show for real. I don’t need to get fired three times, I get the hint.”
My person opinion is the suits at NBC are making a colossal mistake. But then again what’s new, we have already seen this act before when they tried to replace Leno with Conan O’Brien. Speaking of Conan, he showed his lack of class last night by responding to Leno’s departure by saying on his TBS show the following, “the Olympics start airing tonight on NBC. It’s very cool. That’s right, NBC has the Olympics. It’s a big deal. NBC will finally get to show somebody who is OK with passing the torch.”
One of the best things about Leno is he got humor. Now remember Leno is a huge Lib, but he was an equal opportunity joke maker no matter what side of the political spectrum you were. In his monologue last night one of his jokes was, Oh great, now I don’t have a job and I have to sign up for Obamacare.
NBC best hope that Jimmy Fallon is a ratings bonanza because their is no way Leno would come back for a third time. Jay Leno gives one final heartfelt, emotional goodbye.
Jay Leno quoted Johnny Carson by saying … “I bid you all a heartfelt goodnight.”
Well this hardly promises to be like the “Rumble in the Jungle”.

TMZ is reporting that the a boxing match is on between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX. Yes, that same George Zimmerman. It would appear that Zimmerman and DMX are going to have a 3 round boxing match. Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman says that there were 15,000 applicants who wanted to take ob George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was found “not guilty” in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Really, DMX? Obviously the rapper wants to beat the hell out of Zimmerman, he has made that pretty obvious by his words below. But wouldn’t such a match have been better had Zimmerman been in the ring with Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton? Now that’s a match I would be willing to pay for!
Oh by the way, celebrity boxing match. George Zimmerman is a celebrity, really?
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicants … all of whom wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him.
But no one wanted to beat Zimmerman’s ass more than DMX.
As we first reported, DMX promised to massacre Zimmerman in the ring if he got the chance. To be exact, he said, “I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up.” He then said he’d literally piss on George’s face.
George Zimmerman better hope Obamacare covers the injuries he is about to get in this beat down.
On a serious note, George … GO AWAY!!!
Oh wait, check this comment out from Al Sharpton regarding the event. Um, this coming from the man who made himself of celebrity and hero from the false rape accusation of of a police officer in the Tawana Brawley case.
We must be very careful not to glorify or in any way sidestep the implications of making someone whose only claim to fame was killing an unarmed, young man named Trayvon Martin into a cultural celebrity or hero,” Sharpton said.

Oscar Award Winning Actor 46 Year old Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in Manhattan NYC Apartment … Apparent Drug Overdose
PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN FOUND DEAD …
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Oscar Award winning actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman, has been found dead in his New York City apartment. The 46 year old actor was found dead in his apartment located at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. The NY Post is reporting, Hoffman was found by a friend at approximately 11:30 am Sunday inside his Greenwich Village home. The Post is also reporting that his death was of an apparent drug overdose.
Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead Sunday afternoon in his New York City apartment, a law-enforcement official said.
The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine exact cause of death. The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46 years old, was found dead at his apartment at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
The movie ‘Capote’ is obviously what made Philip Seymour Hoffman a house hold name; however, my favorite roles of Hoffman were George Willis Jr. in A ‘Scent of a Woman,’ Dustin Davis in Twister and Scottie J. in Boogie Nights.
UPDATE I: In much more happier times, Philip Seymour Hoffman winning Best Actor for ‘Capote’. Sadly, I cannot help but notice that two of the actors who were up for ‘Best Actor’ at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006 are now dead. Heath Ledger was also found dead in his NYC apartment in 2008.
UPDATE II: TMZ is reporting authorities found a needle in his arm.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the actor was found Sunday morning inside of his Greenwich apartment … and they’re still on scene investigating.
Details surrounding his death are unclear … but the actor had struggled with drug problems … most recently checking himself into a rehab facility for heroin back in May.
Uber Lib Comedian Bill Maher Makes Mass Shooting Gun Joke at Country Music Awards in an Attempt at Humor
Just curious, who said that Bill Maher was funny?
As reported at the Politico, so-called liberal funny man Bill Maher said during his HBO program, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” that a mass shooting should take place at the Country Music Awards in response to the mass gay weddings performed at the recent Grammy Awards. Wow really, that was so funny I forgot to laugh. What is up with liberals fascination with violence, murder and death? What makes them so miserable, when it comes to a US Constitution, Bill of Rights Amendment that gives American’s the right to bear Arms? These are people who would rather have an unarmed people not be able to defend themselves and be at the mercy of thugs, punks and a criminal class.
Taking a swipe at conservatives on gun control, liberal comic Bill Maher joked that a mass shooting should take place at the Country Music Awards.
“Now that liberals have forwarded their agenda by inserting a mass gay wedding into the Grammys, conservatives must match them tit-for-tat by having a mass shooting at the Country Music Awards,” Maher said Friday during his HBO program, “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
Maher’s joke follows the mass weddings performed during the Grammys this past Sunday, in which both same-sex and heterosexual couples were married. Conducted as musician Macklemore and Ryan Lewis sang “Same Love,” it was widely viewed as a call for marriage equality.
PJ Media could not have stated it any better.
Tennessee, where the CMA show is held, has very liberal (in the best sense of the word) gun laws and a permit to carry a concealed handgun is relatively easy to get for law-abiding citizens. I don’t know if the venue where the awards are held — the Bridgestone Arena — has a posted ban on carrying firearms, but even if they do you can bet the bodyguards of country music stars suffer from no such restrictions.
In short, Bill Maher’s sick joke was not only idiotic, it displayed his towering ignorance of guns and the gun culture, as well as an inability to recognize the efficacy of intelligent gun laws.
Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Woody Allen, pens an open letter in the New York Times that should, if they have not already done so, make all question why they have a favorite Woody Allen movie. She detailed the alleged sexual abuse she endured at the hands of Woody Allen. Farrow said she was spurred to comment after Woody Allen was recently honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes. An award that when you look back on the fact that Allen was never charged with any sexual abuse crimes even thought prosecutors back in the 90′s said there was probably cause to do so makes you just question what the Golden Globes were thinking. As Dylan Farrow concluded, “Imagine a world that celebrates her tormenter. Are you imagining that? Now, what’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?
What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies. I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains.
On a personal note in an open response to Dylan Farrow, I was once a Woody Allen fan and did once consider ‘Manhattan,’ ‘A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy’ and ‘Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask’ my favorite movies. However, that was then and this is now. Since the sexual abuse allegations in the early 90′s I have pretty much put Woody Allen in the “ick” category and with the likes of those like O.J. Simpson, where we know they are guilty, even though it was never proved. Recently, we can add the lies of Casey Anthony to that same list. Dylan, just know that it is not a world that celebrates Woody Allen, it is a deranged, without class, morals or character few that do. However, we are glad that you survived the abuse.
One does have to ask why do celebs who behave badly get rewarded? Yes, Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse. Allen was honored at the Golden Globes last month with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award.Maybe he should have been honored with the Roman Polanski award instead.
Today, I consider myself lucky. I am happily married. I have the support of my amazing brothers and sisters. I have a mother who found within herself a well of fortitude that saved us from the chaos a predator brought into our home.
But others are still scared, vulnerable, and struggling for the courage to tell the truth. The message that Hollywood sends matters for them.
What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?
Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
So imagine your seven-year-old daughter being led into an attic by Woody Allen. Imagine she spends a lifetime stricken with nausea at the mention of his name. Imagine a world that celebrates her tormenter.
Are you imagining that? Now, what’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?

Justin Bieber in more trouble … Can We Deport Him Back to Canada, Please!
19 year old Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida for drag racing in a rented yellow Lamborghini and driving while under the influence. According to Beach Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez said, the Biebes was arrested just after 4 am on Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street (Map). Bieber failed a sobriety test at the scene and was taken into custody, Hernandez said. The other driver was also arrested. Hmm, what part about the legal drinking age in the United States being 21 doesn’t Bieber quite understand? I am sure the folks that rented Bieber the yellow Lamborghini are thrilled. Justin Bieber was taken to Dade County’s main jail where he will be booked.
Justin Bieber has been arrested for allegedly drag racing in Miami Beach, Fla., and driving under the influence, the Miami Beach Police Department wrote in a tweet posted on its official Twitter page.
The police told WSVN the 19-year-old Bieber was arrested Thursday just after 4 a.m.on Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street. According to police, he was driving a Lamborghini.
Officials at the Miami-Dade Department of Corrections say Bieber has not yet been booked into jail.
Bieber’s entourage reportedly used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive to create a drag strip for the young star, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald. He was arrested at 4:09 a.m. at Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street in a yellow Lamborghini.
“He was pulled over and failed a field sobriety test,” Miami Beach Police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez told the Sun-Sentinel. “He was then taken to the police station to be offered a breathalyzer.”
Test showed that Bieber was under the influence of drugs, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald.
Bieber was incoherent, had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence, Martinez told the paper. He also did not have a valid license, the chief said.
Bieber will be taken to Dade County’s main jail where he will be booked.
