It hasn't been very long since Joan Rivers passed away, but the thought of how it all happened is hard to comprehend.
In a sit down with Matt Lauer on the Today show which airs on Monday morning, the 47-year-old believes her mother's death could've been avoided.
"In my opinion, it was 100 percent preventable."
The journalist went on to ask Melissa what she thought the clinic could've done to prevent Joan's death and she responded with:
She sure had a lot to say in her Today Show interview on Monday.
The reality star opened up about the pregnancy plans she has with husband Kanye West, but admits it's not as easy as she'd like:
"They say if you've been trying for a year, then you usually need a little bit of help. I had a tough delivery, so I understand what my challenges are. I mean, I'm seeing the best doctors and I'm trying to do everything I can to make that happen."
But, Yeezus' wife says she isn't ready to throw in the towel on natural conception quite yet:
The real winner at the Daytime Emmy Awards in El Lay on Sunday was peace.
Well, sort of. Because ten seconds into their truce, Ellen totally pulled a Red Wedding betrayal move on Matt with some crazy editing! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Ellen and Matt prove they can't stop pranking one another!
And she couldn't be happier for him! She said:
"Bruce is the most honest, just — he has the biggest heart. I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it, and that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."
Awww! Kim went on to explain why she still refers to Bruce as "he." She explained:
This is possibly the best prank war EVER!
Mr. Lauer set up an elaborate prank, complete with thousands of Ellen's least favorite things: balls!
But in the end, she was laughing, and we hopefully have a prank war for the ages on our hands. You may have won this battle, Matt, but April Fool's Day is right around the corner.
Ch-ch-check out the silliness (above)!
Get it, girl!
We fondly remember last summer's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where participants raised over $100 million dollars in ALS research.
Well, now there's a new challenge in town sponsored by Twizzlers in hopes of raising autism awareness!
The Twizzler Challenge invites two parties to snack on opposing ends of a Twizzler a la Lady and The Tramp until their lips meet in the middle — face sucking optional.
This new challenge will not only benefit New York Collaborates for Autism, but will provide hopefuls an excuse to finally smooch those they've been pining for. It is for charity after all, right? (And Twizzler's profit?)
Need a visual representation to see how it works? In the video (below) we have a hungry Kathie Lee Gifford aggressively chomping down her Twizzler end to snack on a frightened Matt Lauer's lips:
Ellen DeGeneres is pretty plugged in when it comes to media and pop culture.
So of course she knew how big of a hit the film Fifty Shades Of Grey would be!!
She didn't change the interview much, all she did was change Matt Lauer's body into that of a man in some serious BDSM bondage gear!! Ha!
The funniest part is how apparently Today show viewers thought it was real!! Lauer even had to say on air that he didn't actually wear bondage gear!
So what did Ellen do? She apologized to Matt, then showed a "totally real" clip of Al Roker… in nipple tassels!!
That's all we're saying. Go check out the video (below) and prepare yourself…
