Who’s Afraid of Tom Arnold?

When Tom Arnold opens the big wooden door of his house in Beverly Hills on a Tuesday in late spring, he’s wearing a blue T-shirt with a Superman “S” logo on it. On the floor behind him is a pink, toddler-size Minnie Mouse car, property of his two-year-old daughter, Quinn. “Hey, buddy,” he says, out of breath from his flight down the stairs, and still sweaty, post-shower, from his morning cardio. He lost 90 pounds five years ago, when his son, Jax, was born, aiming to stick around for the

Howard Stern Calls Old Foe Les Moonves “A Shark”

Howard Stern Calls Old Foe Les Moonves “A Shark”
Sirius radio host Howard Stern isn’t letting bygones be bygones with CBS chief Les Moonves. “Les is such a snake,” Stern said in 2001 and re-played his radio program yesterday. “He’s a snake in the grass. I hate him. I always have.”

And in case anyone thinks Stern might have softened since 2001, he said yesterday Moonves is “a shark.”

That won’t come as any surprise to viewers of David Letterman’s old CBS show, where Stern once where an “I Hate Les Moonves” t-shirt and mocked Letterman about his friendship with Moonves.

Stern’s hard feelings go back at least to 2001 but worsened when he was sued by CBS in 2006 for breach of contract stemming from Stern’s ship-jump to Sirius the year before.

On the show yesterday, Stern said Moonves “tried to ruin my life” and likened the CBS exec to Tony Soprano and “a cold barracuda.

Howard Stern Blasts Les Moonves as a ‘Shark’ With ‘No Humanity’

Howard Stern Blasts Les Moonves as a ‘Shark’ With ‘No Humanity’
Howard Stern blasted Leslie Moonves throughout his radio show Monday, recalling his run-ins with the CBS chief and gloating over the current investigation into him for alleged sexual harassment.

“I know his true nature. He’s a shark,” Stern said on his Sirius radio show, adding that Moonves “had no humanity behind those shark eyes.”

Stern, who went through a bitter legal wrangle with former employer CBS Radio, was gleeful over the investigation into Moonves for alleged sexual misconduct, which was launched following an expose in The New Yorker. Stern replayed a segment from a show in 2001 in which he predicted that Moonves would get his comeuppance.

“Les is such a snake. He’s a snake in the grass….I hate him. I always have,” Stern said in the old clip. “He’s just a friggin’ snake in the grass….Big president of CBS, he’ll fall.”

In his usual profanity-laced style,

‘Homeland’ Eighth Season Will Be Its Final One, Showtime Boss Says At TCA
Showtime president and CEO David Nevins said at TCA on Monday that Homeland‘s eighth season will be its last. “It’s not a cancellation,” asserted Nevins.

The Alex Gansa-Howard Gordon political thriller has won eight Emmys during its run including best drama in 2012, plus two best actress trophies for star Claire Danes.

In April, Danes told Howard Stern on his Sirius Xm show that Homeland would end with Season 8, but this is the first official network confirmation of the decision. Homeland was renewed for Season 7 and Season 8 ahead of its sixth season.

“Alex Gansa will be bringing his show to its proper conclusion,” said Nevins this afternoon. “I can’t say how much it has meant to the acceleration of our brand and for me personally: It was the first series I greenlit.”

Titanic Almost Had Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow

Titanic Almost Had Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow
It turns out James Cameron's Titanic, which remains one of the most successful movies ever, could have looked a whole lot different. We know the tale of Jack and Rose as told by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. However, that couple could have very easily been played by Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow instead, had things went just a little bit differently.

During a recent episode of the Shoot This Now podcast, it was brought up that both Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow were not only in the running, but were amongst the top choices for the 1997 box office smash. In an interview with Stephen Colbert last year, Kate Winslet revealed that she actually auditioned with McConaughey. Here's what she had to say about it.

Netflix Comedy Channel Set To Launch Soon On SiriusXM

After spending heavily on high-priced comedy talent, from Chris Rock to Jerry Seinfeld to Dave Chappelle, Netflix and SiriusXM are planning to package the jokes in audio form.

Few details were included in a SiriusXM blog post announcing the venture, but the company said it was the first time Netflix content will be heard on any audio platform. The channel will be exclusively available to SiriusXM subscribers. No launch date has been specified, with the announcement saying only that the channel is “coming soon.”

Comedy has been one entertainment arena where Netflix’s approach has been especially disruptive. Jamie Mosada, longtime owner of La’s Laugh Factory, told Fortune recently that Netflix is “making money off the backs of” comedians. Seeking to optimize its marketing machine, the streaming giant has gravitated to rising comedians with sizable social media followings such as Ali Wong or Tiffany Haddish. Their millions of followers

Why Bohemian Rhapsody Almost Bit the Dust: Inside the Controversial Freddie Mercury Movie
Queen fans got a fresh look at Rami Malek’s take on legendary rockstar Freddie Mercury in the new trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, which dropped Tuesday. And while the movie looks promising, it’s been quite the journey to get to the finish line, with over eight years of casting and directorial struggles, as well as creative differences plaguing the project.

The movie chronicles Queen from 1970, when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor, until the band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before the singer died of complications from AIDS.

Donald Trump Once Claimed He "Could Have" Slept With Princess Diana — as Long as She Passed an HIV Test

President Donald Trump met with Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, but he received a less than warm welcome from the Brits. Thousands of protesters took to the streets in various cities throughout the UK because the business mogul doesn't exactly have the best track record with the royal family. In an interview with Howard Stern in 1997, just months after Princess Diana's death, Trump insisted that he "could have" slept with the late royal — as long as she passed an HIV test. During the sit-down, which originally resurfaced days before the Princess of Wales' son, Prince Harry, married actress Meghan Markle, Stern asked him, "Why do people think it's egotistical of you to say you could've gotten with Lady Di? You could've gotten her, right? You could've nailed her?" The president replied, "I think I could have." The radio host then demonstrated a scene where Trump demands Princess Diana get tested.
