Glenn Beck offers Bill O'Reilly a job with The Blaze in on-air interview

Glenn Beck, founder of conservative media outlet The Blaze, offered former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly a job in an on-air interview Friday. The two are former colleagues at Fox News.

>> Bill O’Reilly breaks silence on podcast

Beck left the network in 2011; Fox executives told Politico that he was losing sponsors, while Beck contends that he had “differences” with the network, including invoking his religious beliefs on-air. O’Reilly was fired earlier this year.

The offer came during a segment that saw O’Reilly praise Beck for having the foresight to leave Fox and control “his own destiny,” – unlike him. O’Reilly has claimed his firing was a “hit job” and that he was specifically targeted.

In the interview, O’Reilly states that his firing has to do with “destroying voices that the far left doesn’t like,” not the allegations of harassment that led to $13 million in settlements paid out to his accusers since 2016.

Beck offered this in response to O’Reilly’s praise.

“I thank you for that, Bill, and I would like to say publicly ... it’s why I would like you to work for The Blaze. ... I could not get the cable coverage by myself because I’m not powerful enough, unless you have a giant corporation behind you. ... If we could unite our powers for good, as opposed to evil — but that’s another conversation.”

It’s not clear what “evil” Beck was referring to.

WATCH: Melissa McCarthy's Spicer, Baldwin's Trump get spicy on 'SNL'

"Saturday Night Live" fans knew that host Melissa McCarthy would spice up the comedy show as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in this week's highly anticipated episode. She didn't disappoint, turning up the heat with Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump in a fiery viral moment.

>> Melissa McCarthy spotted driving 'Spicer podium' through NYC

In the sketch, which began with Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant) briefing reporters before McCarthy's Spicer sprang from the bushes, pushed his colleague out of the way and took over the podium to defend Trump.

"If he's crazy, he's crazy like a fox with mental problems," McCarthy-as-Spicer told a reporter who asked whether Trump was "unhinged." 

"Spicey" then addressed a follow-up question about the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the status of the Russia investigation.

“Trump is innocent," McCarthy's Spicer said. "How do we know? Because he told us so. Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him, and they’re going to prove it with a certified letter, which you know is the truth because it costs an extra $2 to have it certified.”

After explaining Comey's firing with Russian dolls, McCarthy-as-Spicer flew into a rage, throwing a pillar into the crowd when asked whether he was surprised that Trump didn't fire him before Comey.

But what upset "Spicey" even more was the suggestion that Trump hadn't been honest with him. The press secretary then took his motorized podium on a road trip to find the president, who was at his New Jersey golf club.

"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" McCarthy's Spicer asked Baldwin's Trump, who replied, "Only since you started working here."

"Trump" then tried to ease his employee's fears with an unusual request.

"Kiss me," Baldwin's Trump said, embracing "Spicey." "I'm famous; it's OK."

"It this like 'The Godfather,' where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?" McCarthy's Spicer asked. 

"Yes," Baldwin-as-Trump replied before the two shared an epic lip-lock.

Baldwin's Trump also appeared in the show's cold open, a parody of the real Trump's interview with NBC News' Lester Holt (Michael Che). In the sketch, Che's Holt is shocked when Baldwin-as-Trump admits to firing Comey because of the Russia probe.

"But that's obstruction of justice," Che-as-Holt said, to which "Trump" replied, "Sure, OK."

"Wait, so did I get him? Is this all over?" Che's Holt asked.

The bit also featured House Speaker Paul Ryan (Mikey Day) serving the president two scoops of ice cream.

The president later insisted that he's nothing like former President Richard Nixon.

"I am not a crook, OK? Plus, I bet Nixon only got one scoop of ice cream for dessert, but I get two scoops," "Trump" said.

Paul Walker's mom recalls day of son's death in emotional interview

Nearly four years after “Fast and Furious” star Paul Walker’s tragic death, his mother, Cheryl, and brother, Caleb, joined “The Dr. Oz Show” for an interview, which aired Thursday, People magazine reports. During the chat, Cheryl recalled the moment she learned of Walker’s fatal 2013 car accident.

“I had had a really nice conversation with Paul that morning,” she said. “He was in my home, he left to go to the event, and so I was expecting him back in the early afternoon, evening. And we had plans with his daughter, too, to decorate a Christmas tree that night.”

Later that day, a family friend came over to deliver the heartbreaking news.

“I think I was in the kitchen and then I heard somebody come in and I looked and it was a friend of mine. Somebody that Paul knew, too. [A] family friend,” she continued. “And she looked like she just lost somebody, you know, she looked very upset. And then other people started arriving, including the two young men that Paul grew up with that were trying to get him out of the car.”

Despite the help of Walker’s family and friends, his mother admitted that she sometimes still found it difficult to continue on without him.

“I felt guilty for even feeling like that, but I really honestly would wish that I didn’t have to wake up in the morning,” she said. “I would never have taken my life, but I really felt that way. Because when you wake up, you have to realize it’s real, and you relive it all over again.”

Caleb, who shot scenes for “Furious 7” as his brother’s character, noted that while the experience was difficult, he’s glad he did it.

“I always wanted to be like him growing up, and so stepping into his shoes was special, but it was too soon, you know, looking back at it. Like, it was, like, just a few months afterward,” he said. “But the most special part was getting to know his other family that he had been working with for 15 years. Every cast member, every person on the set all had a special, unique bond with Paul.”

Despite what you see on TV, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are rumored to be off to a rough start

All may not be well on “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

Ryan Seacrest has barely had time to get comfortable in his new gig as Kelly Ripa’s co-host on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and the rumor mill is already churning.

According to Page Six, things between the co-stars apparently got off to a rocky start. A source told the gossip column that Ripa is not thrilled with ABC’s choice to resurrect “American Idol” now that Seacrest is on her show full-time.

>> Read more trending news 

“She doesn’t want a repeat of the Michael Strahan situation. It’s like ABC is once again diluting the attention on ‘Live.’ She wants to make sure her show is Ryan’s first priority, not ‘Idol,’” the source said.

It was announced earlier this week that “Idol” would be making a comeback to TV and almost immediately, there was speculation that Seacrest would join the reboot as host again. The network has not released any details about the judges or host at this time.

“This isn’t some spur-of-the-moment deal. It’s a part of his move to ABC,” said the source. “It’s a no-brainer. He took the job for ‘Idol’ and to host ‘Live.’ It’s the only way ABC could pay him enough money to come over.” ABC is reportedly scheduled to roll out its plan for the show to advertisers later this month.

Seacrest’s rep refuted the rumors saying, “That’s untrue. He does not have a deal with ‘Idol.’ He’s in conversations. His ‘Live’ deal was made independent of any ‘Idol’ discussions. His priority is ‘Live With Kelly and Ryan’ and his radio show.”

There are conflicting reports about whether or not Ripa is okay with Seacrest doing both shows should the opportunity present itself.

“Kelly is in the loop. She had approval over the co-host, so Ryan was her first choice. It was a very calculated decision by the network and by her. Everyone is thrilled. They’ve known each other 15 years . . . They really are friends,” the source said.

Another insider claimed that ABC plans to air “Idol” on Sundays to prioritize Seacrest’s schedule.

“He’s not going to do anything to jeopardize ‘Live.’ He has a long-term commitment to the show. He’s excited to be living in New York, and this is a big deal for him,” the source said. Ripa’s rep said she’s as excited as Seacrest, “It’s all false. She’s been fully in the loop,” the insider shared.

Ludacris surprises mom by redecorating house for Mother’s Day

Ludacris presented an early Mother’s Day gift to his mom, completing a remodeling product she had started after moving into the rapper’s former home, The Grio reported.

>> Read more trending news

Ludacris, aka Chris Bridges, said he bought his first home in Atlanta in the early 2000s and decorated it as a bachelor’s pad that included his own logo on the wall. 

“At that point I had really no sense of style,” Ludacris said on the latest episode of “My Houzz.”

Ludacris told “My Houzz,” that he invited his mother, Roberta Shields, to move from Virginia to Georgia into his house. But although Roberta was now closer to her family, a bachelor’s theme was not something she wanted. So, she started to redecorate it.

“This is the first house that I bought when I became commercially successful and I never got rid of it,” Ludacris told Us. “I’ve been wanting to do these changes and help my mom out and make sure I make her proud.

“When she moved into it, she was wanting to make it her own,” Ludacris told The Grio. “But a lot of the rooms my mother has started on are just incomplete.” 

So, as a Mother’s Day present, Ludacris, along with his wife Eudoxie, decided to finish up the remodeling job for her. The couple worked with designer Rachel Oliver to remake the house, making it more modern and feminine.

“It makes me feel that I’m blessed beyond belief,” Roberta said after seeing her new home. “What I would say to them is, ‘Thank you for loving me.’”

“I feel like every child wants to do everything they can possibly do for their mom to give back an ounce of what their mother has given them,” Ludacris said. “This is one step closer.”

Steve Harvey responds to ‘do not approach me’ memo sent to staff

As fun-loving and easy going as he is on camera, Steve Harvey seems to run a tight ship off-stage.

“Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED,” he wrote in a letter to the staff of his Chicago-filmed talk show. “My security team will stop everyone from standing at my door who have the intent to see or speak to me.”

Apparently Steve’s been pretty lenient about casual meets and greets in the past, and it’s made it hard to stay focused.

“I want all the ambushing to stop now,” he wrote.

Chicago columnist Robert Feder posted the entire letter and strongly suggested a soon-to-be-unemployed staff member leaked it. The show is moving to Los Angeles and lots of people are going to be looking for work.

Harvey tossed a little sliver of shade in his official farewell statement, saying “The new location will allow me to welcome more celebrity guests and more importantly let me do what I enjoy doing best, being funny.”

Harvey spoke about the letter to Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I've always had a policy where, you know, you can come and talk to me -- so many people are great around here, but some of them just started taking advantage of it.

“Look man, I'm in my makeup chair, they walk in the room. I'm having lunch, they walk in, they don't knock,” he said. “I'm in the hallway, I'm getting ambushed by people with friends that come to the show and having me sign this and do this. I just said, ‘Wait a minute.’ And in hindsight, I probably should've handled it a little bit differently.”

“I just didn't want to be in this prison anymore where I had to be in this little room, scared to go out and take a breath of fresh air without somebody approaching me, so I wrote the letter,” he said. 

Still, Harvey isn’t sorry about the letter.

“I don’t apologize about the letter, but it's kind of crazy what people who took this thing and ran, man.”

Stephen Colbert hosts 'Daily Show' reunion with Jon Stewart, correspondents

Stephen Colbert held an epic “Daily Show” reunion on Tuesday night. The host of “The Late Show” managed to get the whole gang back together again after years apart.

Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms and Rob Corddry joined Colbert on his CBS show.

The show opened with Stewart making a large sandwich for current host of “The Daily Show” Trevor Noah, who was smashing a bunch of buttons while waiting for Stewart and Colbert to deliver his lunch to him on a silver tray.

Later in the show, Colbert had a flashback to his last day at “The Daily Show” in 2005. As he packed away his iBook and lucky Steve Carell mug, Bee — wearing a perm and sequined jacket — walked in to declare her surprise at Colbert’s decision to leave during George W. Bush’s presidency.

“There’s never gonna be another president this good for comedy,” she said. “I mean, this guy does something ridiculous at least once a month. I know there’s one thing for sure — there’s no scenario under which I will ever say, ‘God, I wish George W. Bush was president.’”

A less-bald Corddry and a trucker hat-wearing Helms then entered and began to fight over which one of them would inherit Colbert’s office. Next, Oliver appeared claiming to be former “Daily Show” correspondent Carell.

Stewart was the final member of the team to arrive, revealing that he’d been hiding in the refrigerator the whole time. He congratulated his former underlings on “spreading their wings,” and the gang ended their meeting with their “usual pre-show prayer”: an enthusiastic cheer of “Go, liberal agenda!”

The show then switched gears and became more of a traditional talk show, with the team joining Colbert on the couches to talk about old times and discuss current political events.
