‘Today’: Ryan O’Neal cancels; Bobby Brown talks about Whitney Houston Academy Awards, NBC, Oscars, Today, WESH — posted by halboedeker on April, 30 2012 8:34 AM Discuss This: Comments(0) | Add to del.icio.us | Digg it Diane Keaton attends the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday. Photo credit: Olivier Douliery/Abaca Press/MCT NBC’s “Today” was busy promoting two interviews this morning: Ryan O’Neal and Bobby Brown. But the show announced in the 8 a.m. hour that O’Neal had canceled because he wasn’t feeling well, and “Today” hopes to have him Tuesday. O’Neal has been diagnosed with stage 2 prostate cancer. He also has battled leukemia, which has been in remission for more than a decade. O”Neal is promoting “Both of Us: My Life With Farrah,” a book about his love affair with the late Farrah Fawcett. The actor will be in “Bones” at 8 tonight on Fox. The interview with Brown, the ex-husband of Whitney Houston, will air Wednesday. A preview shows Matt Lauer asking Brown about allegations that he got Houston hooked on drugs. Oscar-winner Diane Keaton did make it to “Today” to promote her new film, “Darling Companion.” The chat had an unusual start: She and Lauer professed their love for each other. Asked why she has wide appeal, she said, “Maybe it’s because I’m extremely insecure, and people identify with that.” Keaton said the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, which she attended over the weekend, was “an astonishing event” that’s “better than the Academy Awards.” She turned giddy at the memory of former Secretary of State Colin Powell hugging her. Lauer invited Keaton to be his date at next year’s dinner, and she accepted. It wasn’t an interview; it was a love-in.
