JIMMY FALLON: In Twitter Feud With Trump


Jimmy Fallon has become the latest target of President Trump's late night tweet storms.

The Tonight Show host recently said in a interview with the Hollywood Reporter that he made a mistake during his 2016 lighthearted interview with then-candidate Trump in which he playfully messed up his hair. Fallon was criticized at the time for being too soft on the controversial figure and accused him of trying to "normalize" him.

Trump fired back Sunday night tweeting, "@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous 'hair show' with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have 'humanized' me-he is taking heat. He called & said 'monster ratings.' Be a man Jimmy!"

Fallon tweeted a response saying, "In honor of the President’s tweet I’ll be making a donation to RAICES in his name." RAICES is the non-profit Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, which provides legal services for immigrants. (Fox News)

ROSEANNE: "I’ve Made Myself a Hate Magnet"


Roseanne Barr says she's made herself a "hate magnet" in her first interview since her controversial tweet.

The comedian chatted with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach the day after her revived sitcom was canceled by ABC last month. He released the interview Sunday on his SoundCloudaccount.

About the tweet directed at Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Obama, Roseanne said, "It’s really hard to say this but, I didn’t mean what they think I meant. And that’s what’s so painful. But I have to face that it hurt people."

The star broke down and said through tears that "you have to feel remorse, not just repentance. That’s just a step towards feeling remorse. And when you feel remorse you have to follow it with recompense. You have to take an action in the world — whether it’s through money or other things — to correct your sin. After your heart is unfrozen and after it stops being broken from the pain you caused others, you stop being a robot and you've got to come back to God. So it’s remorse, and I definitely feel remorse."

Roseanne tweeted that Jarrett, an African-American woman, was the product of the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes." She told Rabbit Boteach, "I’m a lot of things, a loud mouth and all that stuff. But I’m not stupid, for God’s sake. I never would have wittingly called any black person, [I would never have said] they are a monkey. I just wouldn’t do that. I didn’t do that."

Roseanne added, "I horribly regret it. Are you kidding? I lost everything, and I regretted it before I lost everything. And I said to God, 'I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I’ve done wrong. I’m going to accept what the consequences are,' and I do, and I have. But they don’t ever stop. They don’t accept my apology, or explanation. And I’ve made myself a hate magnet. And as a Jew, it’s just horrible. It’s horrible."

Just a few days ago, ABC ordered a Roseanne spinoff called The Conners, without her attached.

CATFISH: Production Resumes


Production on Catfish has resumed after MTV determined the sexual misconduct allegations against host Nev Schulman were not credible.

The network put Catfish on hold after a woman who appeared on the show in 2015 claimed in a video that Nev harassed her.

MTV tells Us Weekly, "Although we never received a formal complaint, MTV and Critical Content immediately engaged an independent third party investigator... The independent investigator found the allegations made in the YouTube videos to be not credible and without merit."

Back when the accusation was made, Nev said, “The behavior described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth.”
