Megyn Kelly Cameraman Drops A Hard Shit Bomb After Walking Into Frame During A Carli Lloyd Interview

Ah, there’s nothing better than live TV mishaps. It’s even better when those mistakes turn into curse words being thrown around because we can’t have that kind of colorful language on network television.

Even worse, it happened on Megyn Kelly’s new show which has apparently been a major flop in its first week. Then, not only that but they’re having an extremely important discussion on women in sports before the guy wanders into frame and the “SHIT” is heard.

All around disaster. Props to Carli for handling it like a true pro’s pro there.

Here’s a little bit of a longer version where you can just hear the sadness in the guy’s breath

Jane Fonda Shutting Down Megyn Kelly During This Interview Is So Uncomfortable, but So Satisfying

Jane Fonda reunited with Robert Redford on the Today show on Wednesday to chat about their new movie, Our Souls at Night, with Megyn Kelly. While the interview started on a good note, things took a drastic turn when Megyn asked the actress about the plastic surgery she’s admitted to having had done in the past. «You admit you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit,» Megyn said. «But you look amazing. I read that you said you’re not proud to admit you’ve had work done. Why not?» Jane’s facial expression almost immediately changed before she firmly said, «We really want to talk about that now?» Fast forward to the 1:30 mark to see the incredibly uncomfortable moment in all its glory.

Steven Seagal Gave A Crazy Interview On British TV

stevenseagalinterview

This morning, Steven Seagal brought his stenciled Eddie Munster hairline to talk about politics, his beloved Russia, and NFL players taking a knee. Steven, who appeared via satellite live from Moscow, was asked by lingering pâté fart Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain about the current political climate in the USA. A few years ago, Steven announced he was thinking of running for Governor of Arizona because he’s a real “Build That Wall” type. Last year he became a Russian citizen. So I think you can already guess what Steven had to say about American politics.

On Trump: “I think that we have a really unfortunate situation, in the sense that even though he was democratically elected, there are so many people out there who don’t feel that that’s the case. And we have a ton of enemies within…Any decisions he makes, anything that he tries to do, he gets blocked from the enemies within.”

On NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem: “I believe in free speech, I believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion…I think it’s outrageous, I think it’s a joke, it’s disgusting. I respect the American flag. I myself have risked my life countless times for the American flag and I don’t understand or agree with this kind of behavior. I think it’s an outrage.”

On whether or not Russia fixed the election: “Why don’t we really be honest here, Piers, let’s be really honest. Every country is involved in espionage…However, for anyone to think that Vladimir Putin had anything to do with fixing the election, or even that the Russians have that kind of technology, is stupid.”

He goes on to say that Russia and America need each other, and should be “great allies.” Okay Steven, I know you really want a cabinet position in the White House, but you’re coming off desperate.

If Steven wants us to be “really honest here,” then I’ll be really honest. The only thing more laughable than the legitimacy of that Moscow backdrop is when he purrs “Vladimir Puuuutin” at the 3:15 mark. Not to mention that Russia definitely has the skills to hack anything. But let’s pretend for a second that Steven is telling the truth about Russia’s lack of technology. That might explain why he became a Russian citizen; he obviously wants to be surrounded by people who don’t have access to the kind of technology needed to discover how much he sucks as an actor. It could take them years, maybe decades, before the citizens of Russia finally download all of Steven Seagal’s movies and learned the truth.

JAY-Z Calls Donald Trump «a Joke — With All Disrespect» in New Interview

It’s no secret that JAY-Z isn’t a big fan of Donald Trump. The 4:44 rapper and his wife, Beyoncé, held a campaign concert for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election cycle. At the time, JAY-Z addressed Trump’s divisive comments, stating, «Once you divide us, you weaken us; we are stronger together.» On Friday, JAY-Z continued that same sentiment during an interview with BBC Radio 1.

«Until everyone is free, no one is free. Period,» JAY-Z declared. «That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. So if you oppress a certain people, everyone is in danger, karmically [sic] and in real life. If I’m being oppressed and you have this big, nice mansion, I’m coming inside there. That’s gonna happen; that’s just how life is.»

The 47-year-old rapper didn’t stop there. «I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture. We’ve been through so much more than this guy,» JAY-Z told the radio station. «This guy, I’m looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all — I can’t even say with all due respect — with all disrespect.»

JAY-Z also shared why he believes that Americans will come out stronger from Trump’s presidency. «I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it,» he said. «I’m just looking forward to what’s next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way. I’m not fearful.»

Angelina Jolie Got Pissed Over Personal Questions During An Interview

angiejo4

Angelina Jolie is a fickle pickle. One minute she’s spilling her guts to People and Vanity Fair; the next, she’s ALLEGEDLY  getting all prickly during an interview with Juju Chang for Nightline when asked about her divorce from Brad Pitt.

According to Page Six, Juju asked Angelina about her divorce and she wasn’t having it.

When ABC’s Juju Chang delicately raised the subject of Angelina Jolie’s divorce during an interview for “Nightline” last week, the actress/director lost her temper and refused to answer. But that footage never aired. “It’s true she got testy,” one source said.

I can picture Angie channeling her inner Norma Desmond complete with house coat and turban, leaning in for her close up, eyes widening with intensity as Juju asks about her movie but just as the camera pulls in she dramatically turns her head away, insisting the that Juju immediately cease eye contact and demanding the crew all look away.

Page Six says Angie was only interested in answering questions about her movie First They Killed My Father and seemed surprised that Juju would have the audacity to ask about the only thing anybody in actually interested in. A source says that she also didn’t want to talk about her the health problems she talked about in Vanity Fair.

When Chang asked Jolie, 42, about her much-publicized health issues — hypertension and Bell’s palsy — Jolie was clearly annoyed.

“I’m fine right now. I’m fine right now,” Jolie said. “My children are healthy. I’m healthy.”

I’m fine “right now” is something the heroine says while laying across a Victorian fainting couch, a small lace kerchief delicately placed at the corner of the mouth. Right now she is fine but you just wait until chapter 32, you’ll all be kicking yourself for not having picked up on the clues dropped in chapters 2 through 31 as you marvel over the brave heroine’s inner strength and fortitude through your tears. Angie should’ve just said, “Pick up a copy of Vanity Fair, bitch.

And if you thought the fight between Angie’s team and Brad’s team is over, it isn’t. A member of Team Brad said this to Page Six about Angie bringing up the kids in an interview.

“She uses her kids as props.”

There’s Jacques Jolie-Pitt, always re-starting shit.

Nicole Kidman Made a Point to Acknowledge Her Adult Children in a Post-Emmys Interview

Nicole Kidman spoke at an event Tuesday night to support Futures Without Violence, an organization that works to end violence against women and children around the world, where she revealed hints about season two of Big Little Lies, expressed how much her recent Emmy win meant to her, and reiterated the importance of shedding light on domestic abuse. She also made a point to acknowledge her older, adopted children with Tom Cruise, Connor, 22, and Isabella, 24, something she didn’t do in her Emmy acceptance speech that had some questioning why it sounded like she only had two young daughters.

During her interview with ABC News at the event, Nicole cut in after Deborah Roberts said, «You have young daughters, I know your children are younger . . . » to say, «Well, I have two adult children who are grown-up, one of them’s married, and then I have little girls.»

She then went on to say this about her youngest daughters with husband Keith Urban, Sunday Rose (8) and Faith Margaret (6): «They’ve not seen any of it. They want to see it and I say it’s not appropriate. To which they say, can we just see bits?» From her laugh at the end, we’re guessing the answer has still been no!

Maddox Jolie-Pitt Gushes About Mom Angelina in His First-Ever Interview

Angelina Jolie and her family are currently hitting the press tour for her new film, First They Killed My Father, on which Maddox, 16, served as an executive producer and Pax, 13, was an on-set photographer. During Maddox’s first-ever interview with People this week, Angelina’s oldest son opened up about what it was like working alongside his mom. «I was trying to help wherever I could,» he said. «[She’s] fun, funny, and easy to work with. She’s a wonder.»

Angelina famously adopted Maddox from Cambodia back in 2002, and she revealed that he was actually the one who encouraged her to make a movie about his country. «Mad knows himself very well and if he said he was ready, I knew he knew,» Angelina said. «He goes back and forth [to Cambodia] a lot, but this would be over four months of just being in the country, really reading, listening, learning and absorbing all things about his culture and country [including] the very, very dark parts.» When asked what he loves most about Cambodia, Maddox replied, «The people by far. [They are] calm, relaxed, and when they want to do something wild, they do it — much like me in a way. I’m proud to be a Cambodian.»

But filmmaking isn’t Maddox’s only talent: he also speaks several languages and he’s been taking flying lessons. «He’s quite capable and always takes me by surprise,» Angelina gushed. «He’s been practicing flying, then they called me the other day and said, ‘So Mad can go solo,’ and I nearly dropped the phone! He’s been taking French and Russian and all these different languages. I hear him talking in full, fluent French, and they’ll tell me he’s reached a certain level in his German, and I have no idea. He doesn’t do it in front of me.»

Angelina, who filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September 2016, also spoke out about how she’s been dealing with the split. «I have had my ups and downs. I guess I am a little bit stronger,» she explained. «We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that. I haven’t worked for over a year now because they needed me home. We’ve all been a bit in lockdown. I think they’re itching to get out in the world again.»

Jim Carrey Gives the Most Cringeworthy, Bizarre Interview at NYFW: «I Don’t Care»

«Well, you definitely can’t say that Jim Carrey gives a boring interview.» That was the best way E! News could explain their recent chat with the famous comedian at Harper’s Bazaar‘s party celebrating icons during New York Fashion Week on Friday. After circling reporter Catt Sadler on the red carpet, Jim candidly blurted out that «there is no meaning to any of this,» and that’s when things got weird. As he attempted to explain why he doesn’t believe in icons (or personalities for that matter), Catt flashed the camera a few confused looks, before he ultimately stated, «There is no me. We don’t matter,» and walked away. See the awkward encounter above.
