1) Rapper Coolio swearing to me that one of the ladies from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta was “on his jock.” Whatever that means.

2) Damian Lewis, the British actor who stars in NBC’s Life, speaking almost exclusively in his character’s American accent because “speaking to Americans, my British accent sounds fake.”

3) Howie Mandel, the host of NBC’s Deal or No Deal and a renowned germophobe, insisting on simply bumping fists when meeting journalists.

4) Jay Leno, disguised in a bald cap and fake moustache, taking the microphone to grill NBC executives during a press session.Johnhenson
