A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
Two big things happened last night on Conan O’Brien’s show. O’Brien officiated a gay wedding between his costume designer, Scott Cronick, and Cronick’s partner, David Gorshein. And he welcomed Triumph the Insult Comic Dog back to the show by sending him to Occupy Wall Street. The results are hilarious and smutty enough that we can’t embed the video here. But click to watch. You will not regret it. (TV Blog; Team Coco)
The National Congress of American Indians is not happy with Kris Jenner. During a Thursday “Good Morning, America” appearance, the mother of Kim Kardashian said her daughter will keep Kris Humphries’s engagement ring because it was “a gift,” and added: “I hate an Indian giver.” The Native American group condemned those comments: “The phrase ‘Indian giving’ is wrong and hurtful,” the group said in a statement. “ The cultural values of Native Americans are based on giving unconditionally and empowering those around them. Instead this cultural value is forgotten when negative stereotyping of Native people occurs.” So, in summary, Jenner clearly never saw this episode of “Seinfeld.” (Daily Mail)
