Anderson Cooper And Kathy Griffin Film A CNN Pilot Together!! New Show Might Be In The Works!

anderson cooper kathy griffin cnn pilot

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin could be heading to CNN as a permanent duo!

According to Deadline, the two filmed an hour long pilot today at CNN studios in New York’s Time Warner Center in front of a live audience. Apparently, CNN president Jeff Zucker was in attendance, too!

Though the details are unclear, it seems Jeff, in an attempt to change things up for the news network, might be hoping to rake in some ratings with the usually well-received Kathy and Anderson.

Need we remind you of Kathy’s hilarious New Year’s Eve kiss? Anderson’s reaction was PRICELESS! LOLZZZ!

We really, REALLY hope this is true!!

Conan Keeps His Tonight Show Staff Employed On Tour!!

Filed under: Conan O'Brien

resized_imwithcoco__optjb.jpg

This is an unbelievably generous gesture.

Conan O'Brien finally announced today his upcoming 30 city comedy tour, The Legally Prohibited From Being On Television Tour, and sources are now revealing that the funny ginge isn't making any $$$ for himself - he's only doing it to keep members of his former Tonight Show working!!

What a stand-up guy!!

Don't worry about him going bankrupt, however! NBC gave him a $32.5 million severance package before kicking him off the air!!

We still think he's a class act, though!!

Kudos, Conan!!

Lawsuit Against The Doctors!! Patient Manipulated Into Having His Peen Operated On In Front Of A Live Audience!!

the-doctors-112008-screenjb.jpg

Well, we think this is probably one of the most mortifying things that you could do to someone.

And the more you read, the worse it gets.

A patient on The Doctors has sued the CBS show claiming that producers bullied and tricked him into undergoing laser surgery for a condition called "pearly penile papules" in front of a LIVE STUDIO AUDIENCE and then broadcast the operation without his consent!!

Absolutely horrifying!!

The plaintiff Tyler Bowling, 21, claims he contacted the show's plastic surgeon, Dr. William Groff, in January of last year after he saw that his practice offered laser treatment for the penile papules condition, which are noncontagious, harmless bumps on your peen.

According to the lawsuit, after making an appointment, Groff's secretary offered Bowling the treatment for free if he agreed to "discuss his condition" on her boss's medical program, which they assured him was only watched by other doctors and medical students.

Within minutes, producer Lauree Dash called him even though he HAD NOT signed a waiver, which would have allowed Groff to share his medical information.

Shady shady!

Bowling then flew to El Lay and met with the plastic surgeon, who apparently was ready to perform the surgery DESPITE going over any risks or even confirming with his patient that he wanted to go through with it. He was then slammed with the news that the procedure would be broadcast nationwide on CBS.

So much for just discussing his condition!!

According to the complaint:

"Based on this newly disclosed information, plaintiff immediately voiced his reservations and second thoughts about appearing. Ms. Dash proceeded to cajole, assuage and persuade plaintiff that appearing was no 'big deal' and that no one would see the episode and that plaintiff's appearance would be anonymous."

YEAH. How about you guys expose YOUR private medical conditions and then have your genitals operated on for everyone to watch??

Bowling reluctantly said yes and Dash then persuaded him to sign a variety of release forms, none of which we imagine he had time to read. Afterward, the producers led him onstage in front of 200 PERSON STUDIO AUDIENCE!!

WTF???

The host of the program then read a letter that apparently was signed but NOT written by Bowling:

"Dear Doctors,

I'm so embarrassed to ask you this, but I've had these white pimples on my penis for a long time. I went to my doctor and he told me they were perfectly normal so I should just forget about them … but I'm so embarrassed. Have you ever heard of this? Is there anything I can do to get rid of them? Please help!

Tyler, Minneapolis, MN."

Apparently the entire episode has been rebroadcast and posted on youtube, neither of which were under the terms of Bowling's agreements. He seeks punitive damages for invasion of privacy, fraud, negligent misrepresentation, emotional distress, and misappropriation of his likeness.

HOLY SHIZ. This seriously made us ILL to read.

This is tough because technically, he should have put his foot down and said no, and he DID sign the contracts. But this is just so SKEEZY of the producers, who were clearly take advantage of an overwhelmed and confused kid.

Everything in that account seemed to happen so quickly, and with people abrasively and relentlessly attempting to convince you to do something, we could understand how he would just go along without thinking it through properly - if only to get the pressure off!!

If this entire complaint IS factual, then we sincerely hope he wins!!

That producer needs to be FIRED. Unacceptable.

So, so disgusting.

What do U think?? Should producers be allowed to manipulate guests on their programming or was the kid at fault for not standing up for himself??

conanaap090601033708__optjb.jpg

What a shroud of secrecy!! We LOVE it.

Ticketmaster is reportedly prepping to sell tickets to a stage show starring Conan O'Brien at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix!!

Neither the ginge nor the theater have announced what the show will entail, but you can buy tickets this Monday!!

If this has anything to do with what we posted last month, then they certainly wasted NO time getting the ball rolling!!

The performance is set for April 30th.

What do U think Conan will be doing at this random performance??
