    ohhh, that was very touching! Yep, it did make me cry. It was sad, but so lovely.
    I love Stephen Colbert so much.

    That Russian Tampax add, what the hell?

  3. Jamteezy says:

    I’m sitting in a coffee shop crying my eyes out and ruining my makeup, thanks a lot Colbert. It’s moments like this when he breaks character that are incredible. What a loving woman, and what a lovely tribute.

    • Me Three says:

      Colbert is such a good human being. When he drops out of character and does something like this, you see the sweetness of the man. He is one of my favorite people and obviously loved his Mom a lot. She sounds like a wonderfully crazy and fun person. And we can all thank her for giving us Stephen Colbert!

    If anyone asks, I’m chopping onions at my desk.

    I read James Franco’s review on The Vine & found it interesting……
    I hadn’t realized Franco & Henry Cavill were in Tristan & Isolde. I remember watching it in my sister’s basement & waking up on the floor long after it had finished. So I must’ve slept through Cavill’s parts?
    Sounds like they didn’t get along-
    “But Franco puts the blame for their less than close relationship on himself.
    “Not that we’re enemies. Years ago we worked on a film together called Tristan and Isolde. I played Tristan and he played my backstabbing sidekick,” he explains. “My hunch is that he didn’t like me very much. I don’t know this for certain, but I know that I wouldn’t have liked myself back then because I was a difficult young actor who took himself too seriously.”

    LOL. Franco was all AAAAAArty back then already & sweet, dorky superhero-wannabe Henry got on his nerves.

    • lucy2 says:

      LOL. Franco says that like anything about him has changed.

    • Raquel says:

      Haha, how could those two get along? Franco is a pompous AAHTY jackass who pretends that getting fake degrees he doesn’t even bother to show up for class for makes him some kind of brainiac (I suspect that the man is dumb, even for Hollywood). Cavill is a disciplined, intellectually curious individual who declined to pursue higher education because it would have gotten in the way of his career–not that his extra IQ points couldn’t bludgeon Franco to death if he wanted them to.

      Franco is a narcissist and hardly strikes me as the type of person who could get along well with someone who is head and shoulders better at him…in everything. He would have felt threatened by Cavill, and of course, suspected that Cavill hated him for being more of an AHHTIST than he was. Cavill is the type who probably responds to antagonists by ignoring them completely–which only aggravates narcissists like Franco even more. So, I can imagine how the two didn’t get along.

    Lovely, lovely tribute.

    Stephen Colbert loved his mother so much and she went through a lot in her life with 11 kids, having her husbands and two of her sons die in a terrible place crash and being a young widow, outliving another son before she died.

    I’m sure she packed a lot of life, though, into her 92 years.

  7. marie says:

    so very, very sweet. I’m sitting here at work bawling my eyes out. I absolutely adore Stephen Colbert..

  8. Jeannie B says:

    Yep, 15 seconds in and I had to stop it the video. Will have to watch it when I get home from work. Hearing his voice crack, I can’t take it. He is a just wonderful man.

  9. Lemony says:

    Kaiser, those poodle pics will haunt my dreams tonight! :(

  10. Reece says:

    I’m not crying there’s just a collection of atmospheric humidity near my eyes.

    I don’t care how weepy it makes me, he is still an ass.

    “I wish all of elected officials would live on food stamps for a week to see what it’s really like and then they stop saying such dumb things.”
    Thank you! I always think that when it comes to stuff they have no personal perspective on.
    Sure there are some people who abuse the system, but the vast majority truly rely on that program to survive. Those are the people who will get hurt – the scammers will just find another way to scam.

    That poodle thing is equal parts awesome and horrible, and I can’t even start to watch the Colbert thing, I love him and know it will make me sob.

    • doofus says:

      “Sure there are some people who abuse the system, but the vast majority truly rely on that program to survive.”

      same thing as the “voter identification” (read “voter suppression”) that GOP wants to enact. voter fraud is such a miniscule problem yet they want to pursue the ID issue. of course, as we all know, it’s simply about keeping the poor and minority voters (and others who have difficulty getting picture ID) from expressing their right to vote. God forbid they actually start appealing to that group of voters…it’s much easier to shun them and just try to keep them from the polls.

      same thing for food stamps. this is the kind of issue that goes far with their ever-shrinking base of shrill bigots.

      (NOTE: I am not trying to bash ALL republicans. I realize that there are sensible, intelligent ones that exist (in my family, even!); these issues, however, appeal to the bigoted, ULTRA conservative base. you know…people like Paula Deen.)

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Any body of government that can vote themselves a $22,500 per year raise (without any objections) can kiss the darkest part of my lily-white ass! That’s more than some people make in a year!!!

      I say, we need single mothers in office, because we EXCEL at conflict resolution (sibling rivalry, anyone?) and can pinch a penny ’til it bleeds.

      I’d like to see everyone of these assholes survive on the “aid benefits” they claim are so extravagant.

      The gauntlet’s been thrown, gentle-men and -women; let’s see if you rise to the challenge.

  13. Kim says:

    Not a fan but this is very sweet. My prayers to him for the loss of his mother.

  14. fabgrrl says:

    Funny story, I went to college with George Zimmer’s daughter.

  15. apsutter says:

    I love Colbert. That man is a true class act

  16. RHONYC says:

    he’s SO awesome!

    we watch him nightly the way people watched Cronkite back in the day.

    when the guitar metal shreds and he rains down with the American flag it makes my night every time, man!

    RIP Momma Colbert! :-)

  17. NerdMomma says:

    I haven’t clicked the link yet as I plan to watch the whole episode. I just want to say thank you for putting pictures of my secret fantasy husband all over the place so I can love him via the internet. Ahhhh Stephen.

  18. LaLa2 says:

    I’ve been to one of his live tapings and off camera he is seriously one of the nicest people I have ever seen. And you can tell that it’s genuine kindness. He took questions and was just so great. His mom must’ve been a treasure. She raised a good son!

  19. NYC_girl says:

    I love him. I’m so sad to hear about this. A lovely tribute and she was beautiful. He is my secret fantasy husband too!!

  20. mia girl says:

    Condolience to Stephen Colbert and his family. What a lovely tribute (sniff, sniff, teardrop, teardrop)
    It’s always been pretty evident how much he loves his mom.

  21. jane16 says:

    We saw it last nite, my teenage son and I, and we both cried. Beautifully done. It looked so hard. He is amazing. We love Colbert.

  22. e.non says:

    a beautiful tribute to a woman who clearly was an extraordinary person.

    colbert’s always amazed me with his assorted talents. and now i can see where that inspiration and fearlessness come from.

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    Poor Stephen. It’s hard to lose a parent, especially one so beloved and fun.

    Condolences, good man. Thank you for the funny.

  24. islandwalker says:

    He’s not my favorite but I can sure appreciate how much love he had for his mom. Very touching tribute.

    Those poor poodles.

  25. Anon says:

    I don’t care how old one is, you never get over the loss of your mama. Lost mine when she was 55. My sympathy for Stephen Colbert and his family.
    Wonderful tribute for his Mother.

  26. Thora says:

    It must be nice to have had a mother you could say those things about and mean it.

  27. Bree bree says:

    OMG I’m too scared to click on poodle link bc I don’t wanna cry! Can someone tell me in not horrifying/haunting words what it is? I love animals =[

  28. Jayna says:

    It was so moving. His interview with Oprah on her new network was fantastic and so revealing and I loved his family. I never knew about the loss he had in his life early until the interview.

    His tribute reminds me of Craig Ferguson on his late night TV show during his monologue making a tribute one time to his dad. I had tears streaming down my face.

  29. AintMisbehavin says:

    Lauer’s a bigger D!(k than his actually manhood..

  30. Anne De Vries says:

    A week on food stamps is not nearly enough. Then you still have things in the house, you can swing it for a few weeks.

    No, put them up in a crappy little apartment, take away any luxury, make sure nobody gives them anything, and then let them live on food stamps for a month or two. That might come close to really feeling what it’s like
