Gov. Rick Perry Gives “Top Ten Excuses” for His Debate Meltdown: Late Last Night

Last night, Governor Rick Perry attempted to recover from his pretty catastrophic mental breakdown at the Republican Debate the other day by delivering David Letterman’s “Top Ten List” on The Late Show. The category: “Top Ten Rick Perry Excuses.”

Robert Pattinson appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to lament how he’s “not British enough” anymore—and how he plans to rectify this—and the not-entirely-successful event of imprinting his hands and feet in cement at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater with Twilight costars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.

Kristen Stewart paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to play a game where she guesses if black-clad visitors to Hollywood are there to see Breaking Dawn or the Megadeth concert. She also went into detail to explain what they had to cut out of her love scene with Robert Pattinson to keep from reaching an R-rating.


Finally, also on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jon Bernthal, who plays Shane on The Walking Dead, spoke about being stuck next to a die-hard fan on a five-hour flight on the way to his son’s birth. Apparently the fan made Bernthal give a behind-the-scenes commentary on the entire first season DVD of the series.


Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
