Amy Sedaris Teaches Stephen Colbert About Owning a Pet Rabbit

Amy Sedaris with pet rabbit “Someone once told me that bunny people were lesbians,” quipped actress, comedian, author, and rabbit expert Amy Sedaris. “I thought that was so funny.”

Sedaris, who is, for the record, not a lesbian, has been a bunny person since the nineties. She’s had two of the little critters over the years. The first, Tattletale, was an impulse buy after gazing into a pet shop window. She adopted the second, a black-and-white Mini Rex named Dusty, who passed away recently at the age of 12. “I’m still in mourning,” said Sedaris while sitting on the floor of her Greenwich Village apartment, the walls of which boast bunny paintings. Toy rabbits that resemble her own can be found on a shelf, and in the bedroom she keeps two urns with her little angels’ remains. Sometimes, she writes them letters, telling them she misses them or how her day was. She’s waiting a year until she gets another. “This time,” she said, “I think I’ll get two.”

Comic-Con Exclusive: “Ambiguously Gay Duo” Monitor Mate

Ambiguously Gay Duo Monitor Mate

With Stephen Colbert about to take David Letterman’s throne and abandon his Bill O’Reilly-like persona, it’s time for a little reminder that he can do other characters as well. Prior to making a solo name for himself, he and his fellow Steve (i.e. Carell) were Saturday Night Live’s Ambiguously Gay Duo of Ace and Gary, who confounded foes with suggestive poses while never actually confirming their personal life details.

This summer, they can insert themselves right into your heart and cram onto your computer with this bobblehead-style toy that attaches to your monitor (and probably other things). We’re delighted to be debuting the first pictures of it right here on TR. Best of all, you don’t even have to go to Comic-Con for this item to penetrate your warm household – additional supplies will be available for $11.99 at Entertainment Earth.

What Was Stephen Colbert Doing When Apollo 11 Landed on the Moon?

Where were you when the Apollo 11 astronauts landed on the moon? Or if you weren’t around in the late 1960′s, what do you make of that “giant leap for mankind?”

Buzz Aldrin — the second man to walk on the moon — wants to hear from you, as he explains in the video above, released in anticipation of the moon landing’s 45th anniversary later this month.

“The whole world celebrated our moon landing, but we missed the whole thing because we were out of town,” Aldrin jokes in the video. “So now I invite you to share with me and the world, your story or your family’s story of where you were on July 20th, 1969.”

Celebrities are already buzzing about the anniversary, from Bill Nye to Stephen Colbert to John Travolta.

“I was five years old and my mom swears she got me up and she put me in front of the TV with my other ten brothers and sisters,” Colbert says in the video (03:15 – 03:23).
