Guy Fieri: 'Minute to Win It' is 'life-changing'

Food Network star Guy Fieri never thought of himself as a future game show host growing up.

"I loved watching Richard Dawson and Wink Martindale on TV. I always liked the personality and energy they brought to the screen.  I never imagined myself doing what they did, and I can't believe I'm doing this now."

Fieri hosts "Minute to Win It," the NBC stunt game show that returns for three holiday-themed episodes starting December 7. The chef and restaurateur says fans should expect to see some holiday bonuses thrown into the mix.

Would you name your son Jesse James?

Turns out parents don’t like naming their children after Hollywood’s unfaithful husbands. Their adored Hollywood wives, however, are another story.

“For the most part, parents are drawn to positive celebrity images,” Murray said.

When Conan met jeggings

Proving that he is a man of his word, Conan O’Brien kept a promise he made that lots of viewers probably wished he hadn’t: he donned a pair of jeggings.

It all started Wednesday night when O’Brien had fashion expert and “Project Runway” star Tim Gunn on his show. Talk turned to a new fashion craze known as jeggings. That's leggings styled to look like tight jeans for you less fashion forward folks.

Anyhow, Gunn let it be known that jeggings are not just for the ladies, at which point, O’Brien vowed to wear a pair for an entire show. And that he did on Thursday night.

Let’s just say it was a sight to behold. Click here to watch Coco sport the new look.

Joker footage won't be in 'Dark Knight Rises'

Ledger died of an accidental drug overdose in January 2008 – just six months before his heralded turn as "The Dark Knight's" twisted Joker arrived in theaters.

Blogs have been abuzz that Nolan was planning to insert unused footage of Ledger into the blockbuster film's follow up, but the director and Thomas have dismissed those claims to the Hollywood Reporter.
