Couric, Katie – Couric recounts that on a date with television personality Larry King 26 years ago, the talk-show host attempted to make a move, and “lunged” at her. King replied that Couric misinterpreted his actions, and that he had simply died for a moment and fell forward into her lap.

Gaga, Lady – The Queen of Weird didn’t take kindly to a lawsuit filed by ex-personal assistant Jennifer O’Neill, calling her a “hood-rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn.” O’Neill filed the suit 2 years ago, alleging that she was at Gaga’s “beck and call” morning and night. Gaga’s team reportedly issued a public response stating that anyone who didn’t think a singer who wears dresses made of Kermits and meat would have some strange requests is being unrealistic.

Stallone, Sylvester – The man who played Rambo supports a new assault weapons ban: “Who … needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. … You can’t hunt with it. … Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?” He then single-handedly saved all of Afghanistan from the Soviets.
