10 Celebs Who've Been Banned From Talk Shows
Hugh Grant is one of the few celebrities who is not welcome to return to the stage of "The Daily Show." Grant made his one and only appearance on the show to promote his film titled "Did You Hear About The Morgans?" According to Jon Stewart, Grant whined and complained the entire time and left the audience and production crew with a bad taste in their mouths.
Social media is a double-edged sword, even for celebs like Madonna. She made herself the No. 1 enemy of talk show host Piers Morgan years ago. Morgan still holds a grudge against the Material Girl. When Madonna joined Twitter, Morgan extended a warm welcome by letting her know she still makes him mad.
Kathy Griffin has a unique sense of humor that wins her fans in some places and gets her banned from others. Griffin has been banned on many shows, including "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," and "The Late Show With David Letterman," for outrageous stunts like strip teases and obscene comments and gestures.
Sinead O'Connor made many enemies during a highly publicized performance on "Saturday Night Live." During live television, viewers across the United States saw O'Connor tear up a picture of Pope John Paul II. Her actions were an egregious attack, many say, on the Holy Roman Empire, and the media was quick to find her at fault.
Show host Piers Morgan, who seems to have a lengthy list of celebrities that he despises, includes Howie Mandel on his list as well. This former judge on "America's Got Talent" wore out his welcome quickly after rubbing Morgan the wrong way. Morgan reportedly finds Mandel's sense of humor highly irritating.
Mr. Grammer joins Madonna on host Piers Morgan's list of stars whose actions equate to a permanent ban from his show. Prior to inviting Grammer into the studio, Morgan ran a video clip of Grammer's ex-wife, which infuriated and embarrassed the star. The hard feelings are mutual, as Grammer has no desire to make amends with Morgan.
Radio star Howard Stern has a notoriously dirty mouth and questionable morals, which have gotten him into trouble in the past. Never one to hold his tongue, he was ostracized by Jay Leno, who promoted Stern to the No. 1 spot on his list of people to avoid hosting at all costs.
Vaughn made a name for himself acting in comedies and funny films. Not everyone thinks he is hilarious, however. Ellen DeGeneres frowns rather than smiles when she hears Vaughn's name. She banned him from her show after he made an off-color remark about a homosexual scene in "The Dilemma."
It takes a lot to get kicked off a show as controversial as Howard Stern's, but Gary Busey managed to do just that when he picked up co-guest Robin Quivers in a suffocating bear hug and then proceeded to wrestle his host to the floor. When asked about the outburst, Busey blamed his actions on a split personality disorder.
The Kardashian/Jenner Clan
The Kardashian/Jenner clan has a cult following, but not everyone is so enthusiastic about them. Host Anderson Cooper, for one, announced that no member of this family is welcome at any time on his show. That includes Khloe, who received this devastating news after launching a Twitter post announcing her crush on Cooper.
Some celebrities, it seems, never learn to mind their manners. While many stars know how to hold their tongues at the right moments, these stars do not and are in permanent time-out.
