Jessy Delfino on the Tyra Banks Show

You may have missed yesterday's edition of The Tyra Banks Show, because, let's face it, you have much better things to do with your day. So to catch you up, Tyra tackled spring cleaning, and if you know anything about her show, you know that she likes to sometimes find comedians to take part in her ruses, only said comedians don't know all of the rules to the ruse, and then they find out the ruse is on them! One of yesterday's stars was musical comedian Jessy Delfino, who apparently keeps too much in her handbag. Tyra would show her. Here's a little bit of how Delfino felt about it: I was invited to be a "guest" on the show but they sat me in the AUDIENCE like some kind of commoner. (ha ha).

For example, this line actually appeared in print to explain why Buress would perform for the students at Eastern Illinois University last month: "Burress (sic) was the most popular comedian in Caponera's price range of $2,000."

David Alan Grier’s apology for Dancing with the Stars on Jimmy Kimmel

Quick recap. David Alan Grier went on ABC's Dancing with the Stars after Comedy Central didn't renew Chocolate News, then the judges thought because he was a comedian, they could tease him more than the others, then Grier thought he could tease them back with some profanities after he got kicked off, so now he went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to deliver an apology and appear in a mock instructional video for anyone else who wants to go on a "reality" show. OK. I think we're all caught...
