The 34-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told Kimmel that Jenner is "doing really well" after openly up publically about his transition. In his interview with Diane Sawyer, which was broadcast last Friday (24th April), Jenner confirmed the rumours of his transition which had circulated since January of this year.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen apparently had no idea that the 'Full House' revival was even a thing before the world knew on Monday.
‘Full House’ may be coming back to screens, but it was apparently news to two of the original series’ biggest stars. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen claim that the first they had heard of the revival was John Stamos making the announcement on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ earlier this week.
News broke on Monday that the fondly-remembered series would be getting a reboot under the name ‘Fuller House’, after Netflix commissioned thirteen new episodes. But in an interview with WWD on Tuesday, Ashley Olsen said that they had heard nothing prior to the actual announcement.

The 35 year old comedian, current star of 'Get Hard', brought a tear to the eyes of much of the audience as he accepted his Comedic Genius Award.
It was a memorable night at Sunday evening’s MTV Movie Awards, but arguably the highlight was Kevin Hart’s touching acceptance speech.
The comedian, current star of Get Hard and creator of reality show ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’, won the Comedic Genius Award at the end of the evening and gave an emotional and direct speech thanking his family and fans.

The rapper was said to have bailed on the chat show, which was coming live from the South by Southwest festival.
Kanye West was reported to have skipped an appearance on Friday night’s edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, where the rapper was expected to take part in the show’s famous ‘Mean Tweets’ segment. But while some reported the ‘Only One’ rapper’s no-show as a simple case of Kanye being Kanye, it seems the real story is a lot more reasonable.
Kanye was expected to appear on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Friday
After the rapper’s absence was heavily reported on, a rep for West told E! Online, "He was never confirmed to be on the show. We took extraordinary steps and worked directly with the show to try to make it happen.”
After Will Ferrell's ‘Tonight Show’ appearance as Little Debbie, has a new trend of actors wearing dresses on late night tv been born?
Bill Murray sure knows how to make an entrance! The 64 year old comedian rode in on horseback to Thursday night's edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ from the South by Southwest Festival, while also turning heads in a cowboy hat, boots and a rather fetching red dress.
Bill Murray appeared on Thursday night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' from the SXSW festival.
"What a cute outfit, well you look very pretty, very beautiful," Kimmel told Murray. To which the actor quipped, “This is just for tonight because it's special," adding that he’s "usually in jeans and a t-shirt.”
The American TV host presented his 10th annual post-Oscars show
The Oscars Ceremony is such a big industry love-in it even puts Kanye’s devotion to Beyoncé by storming the 2009 MTV Music Video Award stage in the shade. Everyone is fabulous, everything is amazing, every film is wonderful. But, on Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscars show party, Jimmy Kimmel Live!: After the Oscars, the niceties stopped and the American chat show host let rip.
Jimmy Kimmel presented the ultimate Oscars after-show party

Snoop regales us of his White House joint. Is it true? Who cares
Snoop Dogg has joined Willie Nelson as weed-loving musicians who have smoked in the White House if his online show, ‘GGN: The Double G News Network’ is to be believed. Well, Nelson actually puffed marijuana on the roof of the White House during Jimmy Carter’s presidency, but you get the point.
Snoop Dogg isn't sheepish about his White House blaze
According to Snoop, he lit up "In the bathroom, not in the White House, but in the bathroom.” As far as we’re concerned, if you take a dump in the White House, you’ve taken a dump in the White House.

Lena Headey appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' on Monday (16th June) and channelled her 'Game of Thrones' character Cersei.
"You have such a way with words, I wonder if you'll be so clever when I have your tongue ripped from your throat," are not the sort of sentiments one would expect when tuning in to watch Jimmy Kimmel Live! Unless you're Lena Headey and happen to play one of the most evil female characters on television, Game Of Thrones' Cersei Lannister.
Lena Headey stars on Game of Thrones as Cersei
The 40-year-old British actress appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday (16th June) and channelled her character Cersei. Headey spends the majority of her time as Cersei drinking wine and insulting whoever crosses her path. And, as Kimmel pointed out, "No one drinks a goblet of wine like you do on Game of Thrones - in character of course."

Stop us if you think that you’ve heard this one before - after pulling the remainder of his US tour, we look at some of Morrissey’s other excuses for cancelling shows.
Earlier this week, former Smiths frontman Morrissey came under fire from fans after cancelling the remaining dates of his North American tour. The 55-year-old left thousands of US fans disappointed after pulling the gigs due to a respitory infection.
Singer Morrissey cancels remainder of US tour
However, fans of the songwriter quickly took to social media sites Twitter and Facebook to point out this is not the first time Morrissey had ‘started something that he couldn't finish,’ having cancelled the same shows in previous years.

Robert Pattinson has appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and admitted that his parents have kicked him out and he's currently "homeless."
Robert Pattinson may be one of the world’s most famous actors, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s living the lavish Hollywood lifestyle. While we’re 99.9% sure he was joking, when Robert Pattinson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he told the host he was currently “homeless.”
Pattinson told host Jimmy Kimmel that he's currently "homeless" and doesn't know where his belongings are
Kimmel joked with Pattinson: “Last time I saw you your living arrangements were a bit shaky. You said you were living under an archway next to some garbage cans.” Pattinson laughed and replied: “I wish, it’s gone way downhill.”
Both Snoop Dogg and Psy have drawn criticism from fans for a multitude of reasons, here are just a few of them:
In one of the oddest collaborations since Nelly gave country artist Tim Mcgraw a call and asked to bring his Louisiana drawl to the R&B track “Over And Over”, Snoop Dogg has teamed up with South Korean viral success Psy to unleash the track “Hangover” upon the world. It’s not the first time the G-funk master has produced a piece of work with an artist from disparate corners of the music world. He has previously teamed up with Miley Cyrus for the track “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” during the rapper’s ill-conceived stint as adopting the Rastafarian lifestyle under the moniker of Snoop Lion.
Snoop Dogg and Psy's collaboration has been widely attacked by both of their respective fans.
Debuting in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the video attained over 3.5 million views in 24 hours and currently boasts viewing figures of almost 25 million. But such figures are small fry for K-pop megastar Psy, who has become the first artist to break the 2 billion mark on Youtube. The video itself depicts Snoop and Psy trying various purported South Korean cures for the after effects of excessive inebriation, as well as their clips from their hedonistic exploits from the day before. As for the music itself, it contains all the tropes of Psy’s previous opus- blaring synthesizers and a skewed chorus hook designed to burrow into your brain and resolutely refuse to leave.
50 Cent has spoofed the movie trailer of Disney's 'Maleficent', appearing in the villain's cloak and horns as 'MaleFiftyCent'.
50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel live on Thursday.
The rapper has created a spoof trailer sending up Angelina Jolie's latest Disney movie in which he appears in the horns and cloak of Maleficent. The tagline for the fake movie, MaleFiftyCent, is 'get witch or die tryin', evidently in homage to 50 Cent's biopic Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
Meyers will serve up the laughs as this year's Emmy host.
Seth Meyers has been announced as the host of the 2015 Emmy awards this August. This caps off a great year for Meyers, who recently went from head writer for SNL and host of the show’s recurring Weekend Update segment to hosting his own late night show. Meyers took over NBC’s Late Night from Jimmy Fallon, after Fallon moved on to Tonight in the place of Jay Leno. It was a bit like a game of musical chairs over at NBC, but the white male hosts all managed to come out on top.
Seth Meyers is having a very successful year.
The Television academy confirmed Meyers’ appointment on Thursday, in keeping with the tradition of picking the host from the pool at the network, broadcasting the Emmys – in this case, NBC. The network will air the event, arguably the biggest night in television, on Monday, August 25. This schedule means that the Emmys take place in the last week before the new fall television season begins each year. The Emmy ceremony is typically broadcast on a Sunday, but this year, being broadcast on NBC, the Emmys would interfere with the NFL's “Sunday Night Football,” and so the Emmys are being moved to the next available date.

Jimmy Kimmel put the Toronto mayor through a humiliatingly personal interview.
Rob Ford, the mayor of Toronto, visited LA on Monday for an interview with late night television host Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The 44 year-old politician laughed along with Kimmel's jokes and even fielded the most inane of the questions but it has since emerged that he was upset to have experienced what he has apparently called a "set up."
Jimmy Kimmel Wasn't Letting Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Get Away So Easily In A Searing Interview.
Rob's brother Doug, who accompanied him to the interview, told The Daily Mail that Rob was "a little upset" after his ridiculing at the hands of Kimmel and the show, in which he was grilled about his alleged drug use, alcohol abuse and weight issues. The mayor hit headlines for all the wrong reasons last year when a video of him reportedly smoking crack cocaine surfaced, drawing negative attention to his mayorhood and the Canadian city.
At 46 years-old Jimmy Kimmel will have a third child after announcing, "It's weird, at my age, I'm going to be one of those old dads."
The host of late night talk-show 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' is going to be a father for a third time.
The 46 year-old and his wife Molly McNearney, a co-head writer for the ABC show, are expecting their first baby together.

So The Tonight Show has Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy Kimmel can trump that with the new "Guardians of the Galaxy" trailer.
With a new competitor in The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel is pulling out all the stops. Last week it was the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover and on Tuesday, the host unveiled the first full trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on Jimmy Kimmel Live! A newly buffed up Chris Pratt, fresh off his Lego Movie success, was on hand to introduce the trailer for GotG, in which he also stars. Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel’s latest venture, which is going to lead into Avengers: Age of Ultron.
As Fallon's rival late night host, Kimmel has had to pull out all the stops lately.
Guardians of the Galaxy follows the adventures of Peter Quill (Pratt), a not entirely law-abiding traveler, who finds himself on the wrong end of a galactic bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To save his skin, Peter is forced into a shaky truce with a quartet of misfits. His survival plan quickly turns into a defense mission, when Peter discovers the power of the orb and the threat it poses to the universe, if it falls into the wrong hands.
Sheen really isn't the best at anger management.
Well, the Charlie Sheen/Ashton Kutcher story is just getting awkward at this point. It all started during Kutcher’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, when the model-turned-actor addressed his predecessor on Two and a Half Men, asking Sheen to “shut the f**k up”. Apparently Kutcher had been receiving some not so pleasant messages from the Anger Management star.
Just because he's on a show called Anger Management, doesn't mean that Sheen actually practices it.
“Dude, shut the f--- up! Enough already," Kutcher told Kimmel on Wednesday's show. "It's three years later and you're still blowing me up on Twitter. Come on dude, really?”
The King and Queen of Celebdom are getting married later this year and here's the latest news we know regarding the wedding planning process
Kimye were in Paris recently, with wedding bells on both their minds
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning the most lavish ceremony they can conjure for their impending nuptials. Aquaman and his hobbit fiancé are masters of grandeur and without a doubt, their wedding ceremony will be off the scale and the kind of wedding ceremony us mere peons could only dream of attending. What we can do though is go through all the gritty details that have emerged so far and try to image what the spectacle might be like.
The twosome had initially planned to rent out the grandiose Palace of Versailles, on the outskirts of the French capital, Paris, for their wedding. Hoping to star in the most important event to take place in the impressive French palace since October 1919 (in their mind), these plans have since been scuppered by the pair, as Kim revealed last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Having been spotted perusing the grounds of the palace during a recent trip to Paris for Couture Week, which had been followed before by online rumours, the reality starlet said that she and Kanye will not be holding their wedding ceremony in the baroque Château de Versailles after all, as she said that she and her hubby were only at Versailles out of interest, having never visited the building before.

Kim Kardashian addressed rumours surrounding her sister Khloe's fertility issues during her interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (23rd January). She also revealed the likely location of her and Kanye West's wedding ceremony.
Kim Kardashian, in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live (23rd January), discussed her sister Khloe's fertility issues. Kardashian explained how, owing to the state of her marriage to now ex-husband Lamar Odom, Khloe felt it was not the right time to have a child.

Kardashian, who appeared on the show wearing a pink Dior dress, cut to show a sliver of stomach, stated "For so long, everyone in our family was feeling really sad for Khloe, thinking that she wasn't getting pregnant and everyone around her was." However, despite the family encouraging Khloe to see fertility specialists, the 33-year-old was unwilling to become pregnant, a factor Kardashian attributes to her sister's belief that timing was not right. She described how Khloe "was not showing up to these doctors' appointments behind our back on purpose and doing everything on purpose," deliberately not to get pregnant. Kardashian added, by way of explanation, "She knew that it wasn't right. She knew that she wasn't ready."
Kim Kardashian appeared on the show wearing a pink Dior dress, pictures of which she later posted on Instagram:

The 'Sherlock' actor gave his best thespian performance of R Kelly's saucy track.
Benedict Cumberbatch has made women go weak at the knees yet again after appearing in a surprise skit on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Host Kimmel could barely contain his glee as he announced "Here, now with a reading of the actual lyrics from R Kelly's song 'Genius' from the forthcoming album Black Panties. I give you Emmy, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominee, Benedict Cumberbatch."
Benedict Cumberbatch Surprised Jimmy Kimmel's Audience With A Rap Reading.
To a roomful of wild screams, Cumberbatch was revealed from behind a curtain sitting on a stool wearing a suit. The room fell silent as he began his recital: "Bodies, so freaking soft. I can't wait to turn you on," he read to delighted whooping from the women in the audience.

Pharrell's here with a new song and an extraordinary music video.
Pharrell Williams has released the world's first 24 hour-long music video for his Despicable Me 2 soundtrack song, 'Happy.' The interactive video takes you through a day in Los Angeles as different performers, including a host of celebrity cameos, take it in turns to dance and walk with the camera for one song as 'Happy' plays in a loop.
Pharrell Just Wants Us All To Be Happy.
From the stylish small child dancing down a street whilst bemused shop owners look on; a frizzy-haired girl leaping and twirling through a car park; a tall man dancing through the aisles of a supermarket whilst stuffing food under his shirt, to Pharrell himself picking up groceries in a rather swanky hat before throwing moves in front of a gospel choir later on. 'Happy' seemingly celebrates the everyday joy hidden in the doldrums of life, as well as the diverse face and talent of L.A.

The Maroon 5 joked with Jimmy Kimmel about how deserving he is of the honour
Adam Levine was crowned the 'Sexiest Man Alive' by People Magazine this week, an honour that Levine himself thinks was duly deserved. Ok, he's probably not that big headed, but when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (20 Nov.) night, he was more than happy to play along with the joke and big himself up, and his sexiness.
He's sexy and he knows it
"A lot of people trivialize this sort of thing. They say it's shallow and think it's just a media stunt used to sell magazines and perpetuate the image of Hollywood being based on looks. And that's totally true," the Maroon 5 frontman joked to his host. He continued, "But I'm completely cool with that."
Sarah Silverman's appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Thursday evening (14th November) was dominated with dead pan jokes about their seven year long relationship.
Sarah Silverman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (14th November). Unfortunately for Kimmel, the focus wasn't on Silverman's comedy routine or recent HBO special but their previous romantic relationship.
Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearey married earlier this year.
Kimmel introduced his guest by focussing primarily on her comedy career, with a small reference to how "there's nothing awkward about her being here." However, Silverman immediately forced the conversation on to their seven year long relationship by presenting Kimmel with an unconventional guest gift: a box of his old things. Kimmel looked distinctly uncomfortable but dealt with the situation surprisingly well.

Some bad news made the rapper lose his temper with a photographer in LA.
In the face of battery and grand theft charges, rapper Kanye West has made an attempt to put his attack on a paparazzo into context. West claims that he tried to grab photographer Daniel Ramos' camera and wrestle him to the ground after receiving some bad news regarding the health of his grandfather.
Kanye & His Young Family Are Accustomed To Being Hounded By Press.
"The guy [Ramos] set me up at the airport the other day. You know he was f**king laughing and s**t...That's the day that I found out my grandfather was not gonna [sic] make it. He passed two weeks later. But when I'm coming out the airport, because it's Kanye or whatever, [paparazzi think], 'We're gonna f**k with him, we're gonna antagonize him,'" said Kanye to a videographer at a Calabasas gas station, via ABC News.

Kanye West used his appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show to moan about his terrible life.
We don't need to go through this again. Anticipation had built for the pair's meeting after Kimmel's now infamous mocking of Kanye's now infamous interview with Radio 1's Zane Lowe.
In the end, Kimmel admitted that he'd only watched a little of West's interview - in which he called himself a fashion designer above a musician and dubbed himself the biggest star on the planet - before filming the sketch. "I think some people read into it differently - that we were positioning you as a child, which was not the case," Kimmel explained in front of a blank staring Kanye.

Great to see the end of that feud.
Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel offered everyone a lesson in conflict resolution, when the rapper/fashion designer/tabloid headline generator accepted Kimmel’s invitation to an interview. Then the two sat down, apologized, saw each other’s point of view and reconciled. And that’s how it’s done, folks.
Kanye West used his appearance to appeal for a return to common decency.
The full interview is available on JKL’s youtube channel, separated between six videos, but suffice it to say that a lot of below-the-surface issues came up during the interview. If you’re still not caught up on the celebrity feud du jour, the feud started after Kimmel spoofed a recent interview that West did with BBC Radio, or rather, the most outrageous bits. The talk show host had kids read out some of Kanye’s statement and, admittedly, the bit was pretty funny. Then West erupted into a Twitter rant against the talk show host and boom – brand new celebrity feud.
The rapper was Wednesday night's main guest, and of course he and Kimmel had lots to discuss given their recent spat.
Kanye West's interview with BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe sparked much conversation, and plenty more criticism of the rapper than he would have hoped for. Eager to poke fun of the self-appointed number one rock and roll star in the world, Jimmy Kimmel aired a seemingly harmless sketch in which Kanye's more outlandish comments were recreated by children, something that really didn't sit well with Kanye. Following a much-publicised online feud, the two were able to clear the air and explain themselves in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which aired on ABC last night; Wednesday, 9 October.
Kanye and Kimmel cleared the air last night
Kimmel went first in their exchange, explaining that he meant no hard feelings when he aired the lighthearted skit. He explained, "The main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse...I think it's funny."

Following their well-publicised falling out over a Kimmel spoof, the two feuding celebrities are going to air out their differences during an appearance on the comic's chat show
It all started with spoof, a harmless spoof that was always seemed as though it was coming because the subject was so laughably absurd. When Kanye West was interviewed by BBC Radio 1 last month, his egotistic boasts were so odd it seemed as though the rapper had wrote himself into a South Park episode, and America's comics must have been battling it out between themselves to see who got to parody the interview first.
Kanye and Kimmel starred in one of the strangest feuds in a while
His claims of being the biggest rock star in the world and inventing black leather jogging bottoms were always going to draw parodies, and when Jimmy Kimmel came along with his own take on the interview there were laughs to be had by all, except for Kanye that is. We don't really need to fill you in on all of the details, basically Kanye went off the chain on Twitter, mis-using Spongebob memes, swearing up a storm and even bringing Kimmel's ex into things (he wrote; "SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!"), as it seemed that Kanye had made a mountain out of a mole hill for a change. You can watch the Kanye segment from Kimmel's show below.

Kanye West has deleted the tweets he made about Jimmy Kimmel's mocking sketch last week.
It seems a few days in Paris are the cure for everyone's problems, including Kanye West's recent bouts of anger. The rapper was spotted in Paris chatting amicably with paparazzi and now he's deleted his Twitter rant about comedian Jimmy Kimmel.

Kanye West, in response to Jimmy Kimmel's mockery, has launched a Twitter tirade. Unfortunately, the rapper is far more amusing than Kimmel's spoof.
When you're in a hole, stop digging. It's a simple enough concept: when you've done something ridiculous and made yourself a laughing stock, just keep quiet and take the consequences. Unfortunately, Kanye West has evidently never been taught this idiom and has charged, once again, bull headed into a rant.

This time, via Twitter, against comedian Jimmy Kimmel who mocked West's appearance on BBC Radio One. The interview, which took place on Monday, has been transformed by Kimmel into a spoof where West and Zane Lowe, the interviewer, are replaced by children. Strangely enough, it's actually far more amusing when West proclaims himself the greatest rock star in the world (because rap, apparently, is the new rock) or when he considers himself akin to Virgil, or Fendi.

Who can resist a choreographed routine on skates?
Stephen Colbert’s political satire might be top notch, but his dance skills are not to be overestimated. Last night, the Colbert Report host strapped on a pair of roller skates and boogied down to the sound of 'Get Lucky' – the Daft Punk/Pharrell Williams hit that’s become the inescapable soundtrack to this summer. The, um, energetic performance served as the kickoff for Colbert’s summer series of concerts or “StePhest Colbchella ‘013” – it’s what the cool kids call it.
Who knew Colbert posessed such hidden talents?
But, of course, the host dancing all by himself would have been a bit sad, so instead he brought in some friends – Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and even Colbert’s former colleague, Jon Stewart – still on leave from The Daily Show – joined in with some tight moves. Colbert’s moves turned out to be too much for the Colbert Report studio, so the shenanigans infiltrated the America’s Got Talent stage and even an interview with Bryan Cranston and the rest of the Breaking Bad cast – at which point Cranston simply joined in for an amazing 70s themed dance routine. We couldn’t do it justice. Just watch the video:
