Kim Kardashian: Sexy Selfie Was 'My Big Middle Finger to the World'

Originally posted 10/31/2013 08:00AM

Kim Kardashian's instantly notorious swimsuit selfie, posted to Instagram this month, was a rebuke to everyone who made fun of her weight during her pregnancy, she revealed Wednesday on The Tonight Show.

"I was trying on a bathing suit, and I actually just sent that to my boyfriend, my fiancé, and I was like, 'Babe, can I post this up? This is my big, like, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat,' " Kardashian, 33, told Jay Leno.

The criticism of her weight was excruciating, she adds, and drove her to seek happiness out of the spotlight for a while.

Jimmy Fallon: It's His Time, Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

Originally posted 04/03/2013 06:00PM

Earlier this week, NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon engaged in a charming little skit – a duet of "Tonight" from West Side Story, with novelty lyrics that reflected the growing media speculation (bordering on certainty) that Leno would soon be forced to give his spot to Fallon.

Tonight, Tonight, why do they say we fight?
I like you, you like me, we're okay!
Tonight, Tonight, who cares who hosts
Tonight?
People just watch online the next day

The unstated irony of this little song is that, at least in West Side Story, one of those singers ends up dead. Now we know which one.

Jay Leno to Retire, Jimmy Fallon to Take Over Tonight Show in 2014

This is no song and dance – like he did with Jimmy Fallon earlier this week.

Jay Leno, 62, is retiring from his 22-year job hosting NBC's Tonight Show, the network officially announced Wednesday.

NBC also said he will be succeeded, as expected, by Jimmy Fallon, 38, once Leno finishes out his contract in spring 2014. The show will also return to New York's 30 Rock. Johnny Carson had moved the show, which first premiered in 1954 (from Manhattan), west in 1972.

Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno Come Out Swinging – in Song

Originally posted 04/02/2013 08:15AM

It had to happen. Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon, the former reportedly about to be replaced as Tonight show host by the latter, have come to blows. Blowing out their lungs in song, that is.

In a terrific and remarkably good-natured spoof that is getting high-profile play – not bad for anybody's ratings – Fallon's Late Night show opened on Monday night with his getting a call from Leno, who had just wrapped up his Tonight show.

"Hey, kid. How you holding up?" Leno, in L.A., asks Fallon, whose desk in his New York office is strewn with newspapers reporting the NBC late-night-host succession.

Fallon, 38, said he's okay and inquired how Leno, 62, was. "Yeah," says the 20-year Tonight veteran. "I'll live. I've been through this before, y'know. Got to admit, I'm a little sick of this."
