Donald Trump told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday night that he's used "aliases" throughout his career in real estate because "otherwise, they find out it's you, and they charge you more money."

"Over the years, I've used aliases," especially when doing real estate deals, Trump acknowledged in an interview on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

"I would never want to use my name, because you had to pay more money for the land," he said. "If you try to buy land, you use different names."

It was an unusual admission from Trump, NBC News reported, who made millions on often-risky real estate deals throughout the 1980s and '90s. He downplayed the tactic, telling Kimmel: "Many people in the real estate business do that."

<![CDATA[Jack Black Ready for Another Red Nose Day]]> Thu, 26 May 2016 03:46:09 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/jackblack--rednoseday.png

Jack Black is probably best known for comedies like "School of Rock" and his voice work in the "Kung Fu Panda" films. So some fans may have been startled a year ago to see how he was affected by his encounter in Uganda with a homeless boy named Felix.

"People were very moved and also a little shocked to see me in that kind of context, because usually I'm just clowning around and making people laugh," Black told NBC's Joe Fryer in a segment that aired Wednesday on "Today."

Black's trip to Uganda was part of the first U.S. edition of Red Nose Day. He is returning this year — with a lighter segment — for “The Red Nose Day Special,” airing Thursday, May 26 (9-11 p.m. ET) on NBC.  

Craig Ferguson will host the live, two-hour extravaganza, which will feature Black, Ellen DeGeneres, Paul Rudd, Key and Peele and many more celebrities.

Red Nose Day, a global movement to fight kids' poverty, has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years.

<![CDATA['The Carmichael Show' Plays the Trump Card]]> Wed, 25 May 2016 12:46:33 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/NUP_172329_0581.JPG

"The Carmichael Show," the standout new sitcom with the old-school "All in the Family" vibe, thrives on exposing and probing splits at a time when partisanship is the new national pastime. But comedian Jerrod Carmichael, in keeping with his 1970s predecessor, Norman Lear, knows that — like charity — dissension begins at home.

"The Carmichael Show," which sees the U.S. through the prism of a far-from-monolithic black, blue-collar family from North Carolina, ends its 2016 run Sunday by tackling a red-hot (and orange-haired) topic: Donald Trump.

It's a logical choice for a show that's largely succeeded, even on a sitcom schedule, in transporting headlines to the living room – everything from racial profiling to gun control to prison reform. But "Carmichael" is far from a kitchen sink drama, thanks to the smart humor and occasional warmth that flow via one of the most relatable American working-class sitcom families since the Conners of "Roseanne." 

On the surface, the characters seem like familiar types, who pair off into couples: Joe, the blunt-talking truck driver, and his shrill and devout wife, Cynthia. Their dopey, but well-meaning son, Bobby, and his earthy estranged wife, Nekeisha. Jerrod’s well-to-do biracial girlfriend, Maxine, who’s getting a new kind of education from the Carmichaels, and Jerrod himself, part smart aleck, part family provocateur.

The main players find their beliefs constantly challenged: Liberal Maxine welcomes Jerrod’s childhood buddy from prison – until discovering good reason to be wary of him. Pious Maxine rails against the evils of pornography – until an old family secret is revealed. Joe declares his love for the Second Amendment – until he learns the hard way about the dangers of having a gun in the house.

The NBC series’ strongest episode centered on Jerrod’s refusal to give up tickets to a Bill Cosby performance, sparking a family schism with his argument for separating the comedian’s act from numerous accusations of off-stage sexual assaults. In the end, Jerrod leaves partway through the show, unable to accept his own logic.

Sunday’s season finale uses the battling Carmichaels to explore the polarizing presumptive GOP presidential nominee. Like Trump, the Carmichaels are an unpredictable bunch.

In its short run, fans have come to count on “The Carmichael Show” for funny, savvy and unflinching takes on the issues of the day. The show might not change minds, but it offers insight into why some people think the way they do, filtered through perhaps the most complicated social unit of them all: the American family.

<![CDATA[Ballerinas Dance to Hip Hop]]> Thu, 26 May 2016 04:12:42 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/Chicago-Ballerinas.jpg

If you thought doing squats was a workout — try doing them en pointe.

Video of Chicago ballerinas dancing to Jason Derulo’s "If It Ain’t Love" is going viral and viewers can’t help but be mesmerized by the dancers’ strength, beauty and poise.

The footage was posted last week on Instagram by Chicago Multi-Cultural Dance Center instructor Homer Hans Bryant and features the "Hiplet Sur Les Pointes" class.

The video was captioned "Because we can."

While the Instagram post has received more than 1,000 likes on the social media site, Brazilian Facebook page So Bailarinos re-posted the video on its account, where it has since garnered more than 6.8 million views.

"All I see is strong women doing something a lot of folks can't do," one user commented on the video. "I was impressed and that's how champions are created and change happens somebody pushes the envelope. Even for warming up it shows great skill strength rhythm and timing."

"I do pointe and let me tell you it is not an easy thing to do," another wrote. "These girls have incredible balance and extreme strength in their ankles in order to be able to do this."

The dance center wrote on Facebook it was excited so many had watched the video.

"We love what we do and it’s really cool to be recognized," the post read.

<![CDATA['Ellen': DeGeneres Helps Clinton Narrow VP List]]> Wed, 25 May 2016 09:58:39 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/Rozman_160524_1123r.jpg

Hillary Clinton "offered" Ellen DeGeneres a position in her cabinet, should the Democratic front-runner win the White House in November.

In an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" airing Wednesday, Clinton turned the table on the show's host, revealing she was there to interview DeGeneres for a possible job in her administration. 

"I know that you have a lot to contribute and I would make you really be in charge of returning kindness to America," Clinton said. "Something that you care a lot about. Try to lift people’s spirits, give them something to be happy about because your show every day does that for millions of people."

DeGeneres would continue doing her daytime show, Clinton said, but the Los Angeles-taped show would have to be moved to Washington, D.C.

"Maybe you could do it from the White House," the former secretary of state proposed to sweeten the deal.

"That would be great to do the show from the White House; why don’t I do that?" DeGeneres exclaimed. She declined the position because Clinton said she would have to live in the vice president's house and not the presidential mansion.

"I have a nice house, I'm fine," the comedian quipped.

DeGeneres tried to help Clinton narrow her vice presidential pick in "Who'd You Rather?" a game where photos of two famous people were shown and Clinton had to choose which person she preferred to run with on a ticket.

"This is very helpful,” Clinton said.

In a contest between businessman Mark Cuban and Vice President Joe Biden, Clinton chose Biden. But he was eliminated in the next match-up when he appeared against "Scandal" star Tony Goldwyn. The actor stood strong as Clinton picked him over "Survivor" host Jeff Probst and even her Democratic presidential rival Bernie Sanders.

"Gotta go with Tony!" Clinton blurted out when a photo of the Vermont senator appeared.

Goldwyn was finally dethroned by George Clooney. Other potential VP picks included Leonardo DiCaprio, Michelle Obama and Beyoncé.

"I really believe in making lemonade out of lemons," Clinton said, a reference to the singer's new album.

Earlier in the interview, DeGeneres asked Clinton if Sanders should drop out of the race, noting "it just looks like 99 percent sure you will be the nominee."

"Look, I think he has to do what he chooses to do. I understand that, I ran all the way to the end against then Sen. Obama," Clinton said. "And when it was over, because we had a much closer race than the one currently is between Sen. Sanders and myself, I withdrew. I endorsed him and I worked really hard to elect him and I do believe that Bernie will do that.

"Saturday Night Live's" Kate McKinnon, who plays Clinton and DeGeneres on the sketch comedy show, was also on "Ellen" Wednesday with her "Ghostbusters" castmates. So, it was only fitting that she would do her most well-known impressions in front of her real-life inspirations.

"Thank you so much for spending your life fighting for the middle class, and for women, and for kids," McKinnon told Clinton in a dead-on DeGeneres impersonation. "I’ve also spent my life fighting for kids, but I am talking about baby goats."

McKinnon then switched to her Clinton voice, telling DeGeneres, "Every day we face hard choices like which statement blazer to wear. When I’m president, I’ll make sure that every American has a fair shot to live up to his or her God-given potential to watch you dance!"

Asked which of the two ladies McKinnon has the most fun parodying, the "SNL" star had a hard time deciding, eventually choosing the person running to be "the next president of the United States."

"I gotta go with her," McKinnon laughed while pointing to Clinton.

<![CDATA[Grande Replaces Houston Hologram on 'The Voice']]> Wed, 25 May 2016 07:05:20 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-524219870.jpg

Christina Aguilera and Ariana Grande proved they are in fact "Dangerous Women."

Grande filled in for a hologram version of Whitney Houston in a duet with the "Dirtty" singer on the season finale of NBC's "The Voice" on Tuesday, and Aguilera fans were not disappointed by the last-minute replacement. [[380800641, C]]

Grande's unforgettable performance comes days after the planned hologram appearance of Houston was scrapped due to technical reasons. After a video of the duet leaked online ahead of its premiere, Houston's first using the technology, the late singer's family said last week the hologram fell short of perfection and shouldn't air.

Instead, the former "Victorious" star joined Aguilera, one of show's celebrity coaches, in singing the title track off of Grande's new album, "Dangerous Woman" on Tuesday.

Former child actress Alisan Porter, who played the title role in 1991's "Curly Sue," was crowned the 10th champion of "The Voice."

Elton John, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Blake Shelton and Kobe Bryant are among more than 65 stars who have signed on for "The Red Nose Day Special."

The charity event, set to air Thursday, May 26 (9-11 p.m. ET) on NBC, raises money for children in need in the United States and around the world.

They join previously announced participants like Ellen DeGeneres, Jack Black and Paul Rudd. The special will be hosted by Craig Ferguson.

The special will feature Roberts’ recent trip to Phoenix to visit projects that take care of children who are facing serious health issues without the means to afford basic medical treatment, according to a news release from NBCUniversal.

It will also feature rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges visiting a food bank in Atlanta at a school where 50 percent of the students are living below the poverty line.

There will be plenty of music during the special, with John and Shelton set to perform special songs. Paul Shaffer will be on hand as musical director of the Red Nose Orchestra. 

“The Red Nose Day Special” also will bring the laughs, with Tracy Morgan, Jay Pharaoh and Sarah Silverman among the many comedians scheduled to appear.

Red Nose Day has raised more than $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. It launched in the U.S. in 2015 as a special day to come together, have fun and make a difference for kids who are most in need.

In its inaugural year in America, more than $23 million was raised for the Red Nose Day Fund, with the money now at work in all 50 states across America and 15 countries through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated.

People are encouraged to get involved, have fun and raise money by buying red noses sold exclusively at Walgreens, organizing fundraising events and watching and donating during the television special.

<![CDATA[Surprise From 'Avengers' Stars]]> Tue, 24 May 2016 08:55:03 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/Ryan-Wilcox-Visit-IMG_2231.jpg

A San Diego teenager who is battling cancer welcomed Captain America, Iron Man and Pepper Potts into his home, just two weeks after his classmates stood behind him in support.

Ryan Wilcox, 18, is a Grossmont High School student who is also a die-hard "Captain America" and "Avengers" fan.

In a video played at the school May 6, Chris Evans offered Wilcox well wishes and told him to "stay strong."

The clip not only went viral but prompted "Avengers" co-star Gwyneth Paltrow to suggest a trip to San Diego.

The trip became a reality Monday when Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the "Avengers" movies; Evans, who portrays Captain America; and Robert Downey Jr., also known as Iron Man, showed up on the Wilcox family's doorstep.

"I saw this car pull up and I saw them walking. I was just like — what?" Ryan told NBC 7's Greg Bledsoe in an interview Monday.

The stars spent some time with Ryan in his room and even signed his wall. They left behind souveniers and a lot of memories.

"We're all a little numb. I knew for a couple days it was gonna happen but until you see them walk through that door, you don't know how you're going to feel. And they just were awesome. They didn't want cameras, they wanted to do it quietly," said Ryan's mom, Amy Wilcox. "They came into our home, sat on our couches and just visited with us."

She said the trio sat down with the family and just talked.
