Kimmel Fires Back: Leno Sucker Punched Me During Oprah


Jimmy Kimmel fired back at Jay Leno, who said Kimmel had "sucker-punched" the NBC comedian when Kimmel came on his show and joked about the late-night scandal.

Answering that charge, Kimmel called Leno a "tattle-tale" and said that it was Leno who had actually sucker-punched him.

After Kimmel performed an entire show impersonating Leno, Leno -- who said he thought the show was funny -- asked Kimmel to appear on Leno's "10 @ 10" segment.

"If I made any mistake," Kimmel said, "the mistake I made was thinking Jay would have anything other to say than what was written on the cue cards. I figured he'd get into it and mix it up. You know, at one time he was a comedian. But he just stood there, kind-of reading through the questions like a robot and then goes off and rats me out to Oprah. That's a sucker punch right there, he's a tattle tale. Oprah and I had a wonderful relationship and now it's ruined because of Jay."
