Jimmy Kimmel and wife Molly McNearney announced in February that they were expecting their first child together. Well, time flies, and now the baby is here! Jimmy announced the news via Twitter, as you do, and reps for the couple have confirmed that mom and baby are “doing great”. The baby’s name is Jane.
Congratulations to my beautiful and very tough wife @mollymcnearney on delivering our baby girl this morning

I feel like I’m having a case of deja vu, because I’m sure Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, had a baby last year. I must just be going crazy and actually thinking of their wedding, because now they ARE expecting a baby and it’s their first! Hurray for babies!
From US Weekly:
Jimmy Kimmel is going to be a dad . . . again! The 46-year-old Jimmy Kimmel Live! host and his wife, Molly McNearney, are expecting a baby. Kimmel shared the exciting news during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday, Feb. 26.
“I’m having a baby . . . wait I want to finish . . . with Ellen,” the late night host jokingly announced. “No, I decided to have the first one with my wife. We got married in July and, you know, it’s interesting. It’s disgusting the way babies are made.”
Ha! Apparently it’s “disgusting” because there are “so many body parts involved”. Uh, last time I checked there were only 2 body parts you need to create a baby, but maybe things have changed – I wouldn’t know, not really my area.
In any case, congrats to them both. Babies are cute… as long as I can give them back!

Seems like an unlikely pairing, but here you go: Jimmy Kimmel and Oprah Winfrey are friends who make pizza together. Jimmy Kimmel is also friends with Jennifer Aniston and Howard Stern, so I don’t know why I’m surprised. Oprah? Why not?
Oh also, Oprah is on Instagram, which actually did surprise me. She posted pics of her and Kimmel making pizza, along with, “Honestly one of the top 3 pizzas I’ve ever tasted. @jimmykimmel #delicious #greatchef” and “Guess who made dinner last nite? @jimmykimmel. #greatchef”.
Girl, we get it, he’s a great chef, chill out on the hashtags.
This whole thing kinda makes me roll my eyes, TBH.

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel have been having major drama – like 6th grade girls fighting over a mutual crush drama – but they decided to try and awkwardly bury the hatchet on Jimmy’s show on Wednesday night. Kanye appeared and not only sorta kinda apologized for maybe overreacting just a tiny bit, but also felt the need to proclaim his own genius yet again and came off just as egotistical as ever.
In case you have no idea what any of this is about, allow me to catch you up quickly: Kanye did that balls-t0-the-wall insane interview on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show, which got tons of attention around the world, and not necessarily the best kind, either. Jimmy was one of the people who made fun of the interview, and Kanye lost his damn mind over Jimmy’s jokes and that’s where we are.
On Jimmy’s show last night, he outright told Kanye that he brings a lot of criticism on himself because he does very often come off like a jerk, which led Kanye on this rant:
“I was really vocal about a lot of things that I’ve been dealing with over the past ten years when I was put in the classification of ‘just a celebrity’.
“I’m a creative genius and there’s no other way to word it. I know you’re not supposed to say that about yourself. I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but my intention is always positive.”
“If you guys look at the Zane interview, it’s really something extremely fearless for someone in my position to do, because most people bow down to TV and bow down to these cameras.
“I couldn’t care less about any of these cameras in all honesty. All I care about is my family, I care about protecting my girl, my baby and protecting my ideas and my dreams and that’s why I went so crazy.”
“I’m totally weird and I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes, and the thing is, for me to say I wasn’t a genius, I would just be lying to you and myself. You gonna love me? You gonna hate me? But I’m gonna be me.”
Well, that’s that, I guess. I’m not quite sure of Kanye is legit suffering from delusions of grandeur, if he’s “faking it til he’s making it” (unlikely) or what his deal is, but he needs to just stop.
First part of the interview is below – click through for the subsequent parts (why they didn’t just put it in one video is beyond me, but there you have it):

Kanye West flipped out over a joke Jimmy Kimmel made at his expense, which is odd behavior for Kanye. It’s so unlike him to overreact and take his feelings to twitter where he slewed a series of caps locked bizarre and thus hilarious insults at Mr. Kimmel’s way.
I’m on team Kanye solely for the entertainment factor (which is why I’m always on team Kanye, it’s the most entertaining team) but he handled this thing so poorly. But he’s got someone coming to his defense: Irving Azoff, a manager in the music industry who represents Christina Aguilera, Van Halen, Jewel, Journey, and a mishmash of other current artists and old favorites.
Mr. Azoff tweeted,
Hey @jimmykimmel @kanyewest kicked your ass. You look like a joke trying to exploit this.
. @jimmykimmel your low blow comment was uncalled for and shows that you still don’t understand the big time.
Really? Dude, come on, give Jimmy Kimmel credit. I think he’s made it to the big time by now.
Mr. Kimmel’s latest response to all this was (via twitter),
my response to @kanyewest last night http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It05EvqFD6s&feature=youtu.be … #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK
I challenge you to a rap battle @kanyewest #Iplaytheclarinet
I didn’t watch the whole video because honestly, I don’t care that much. I skipped around. He basically read Kanye’s tweets on his show, one by one, in his opening monologue with some tame comments.
Does anyone think that maybe they’re both in this together as a joint joke? I want to believe.

Kanye West is REALLY mad at Jimmy Kimmel. Mr. West took to twitter, caps lock in full effect, to blast Kimmel for joking about him on his show. When South Park called him a gay fish he didn’t freak out, but for whatever reason, he flipped out over a sketch Kimmel did mocking Kanye for his recent brag-filled interview with Zane Lowe. Here are his tweets, from oldest to most recent:
JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS
JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON’T TAKE IT AS A JOKE…. YOU DON’T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER
JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD
P-SSY IN YOUR LIFE…
YOU CAN’T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY… IS THAT FUNNY?… OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???
SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F-CKING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK#ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!
I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY’S WEDDING
WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN’T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF-CKER.
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!
He then tweeted a photo of Kimmel with the words “NO GOOD P-SSY” over it and then tweeted an image of Spongebob Squarepants holding a rainbow with the words “JIMMY KIMMEL FACE MOTHERF-CKER” (shown above, edited).
All he’s doing is giving Kimmel more material. Does he not realize that?
