    "Allowed to be an Asshole", yes he says it in jest, but don't be like that.
    There you go, John Oliver said Oprah made him go limp 🤣

    So John Oliver is the only voice of reason in a hopeless society ruled by a monkeys uncle. Is this him as Zazu or him in real life?

    Vivian Vance couldn't stand Streisand when they met at a party. In Old Hollywood when you went to a party you performed. At a party Vance was at Streisand refused. Vance was not happy.

    It only takes one glance at Barbra to recognize how massive her ego is. She expects and even seems to demand adulation. But she did have an amazing voice.

    James Cordon has a great story about Mariah ego tripping and being high maintenance . When he did Carpool Karaoke with her they wanted to shoot at 3 pm. Her people said,figure on four. He was at her hose waiting and waiting and waiting. It was going on 5:30 and? He's looking around the room and she has candles all over the place with her name on them. She has one less now

    It's Interesting ( not surprising) that John Oliver's view count on Jimmy Fallon are lower than the Stephen Colbert or Seth Meyer's , just reflect what Audience is here for -of Fallon vs Colbert/Meyer's

    I like that he wears the 1st Cav pin all the time. His wife was a Doc in that unit, so he is a vet by marriage.

      Herbert Erdferkel 10 months ago

      "a vet by marriage" .. thats one of the stupidest things I ever heard exist in peoples mind ... complete disregard for what words mean, so typical US american that its pure satire in itself.
      Seems far too many US americans are on the peak of mount stupid (dunning-kruger-effect) by now and dont have any idea of how stupid they have become in relation to the rest of the first (second world even) world.
