Well, if Leonardo DiCaprio ever needs a backup...
E! News' very own Jason Kennedy took it upon himself to rev up the newsroom the other day, Wolf of Wall Street-style. And you might guess what that sort of pep talk entailed...
"How's everybody doing today?!" a dapper-looking Leo, er, Jordan Belfort, er, Jason asked at the top of his lungs, doing his best DiCaprio voice. "Have you seen our ratings?! You want to know why we're up 23 percent?! 'Cause we're the best-looking news team in entertainment!"
Not arguing with you over here.
"E! Online number-one in clicks right now, baby!" he continued. "To celebrate our weekly debauchery...We're going to shave Kelly's head, huh?!"
"Nooooooo!" Kelly shrieked in response.
But while Kelly adamantly opposed losing her locks in one fell swoop after seven years on the job, guess who was all for it? (Watch the clip to find out. We think the blond beauty was wearing a wig...)
Then, after rallying the troops with a hearty "E! E! E! E! E!" chant, out came the confetti and the parade, complete with E! News cohost Terrence Jenkins and a bevy of scantily clad ladies on either arm.
You'll have to watch to believe what went down, but we can tell you that Jason (aka "The Wolf of Wilshire") swallowed a gold fish. Or he reached into a bowl and totally made it look like he was swallowing a gold fish.
"They cut out the best line ever," Jason lamented on today's E! News when rehashing the experience with Terrence and Giuliana Rancic. "I said, 'Giuliana, nowhere in sight this week!' I guess they didn't want to hurt your feelings."
Our very own in-house Wolf is now of the opinion that pep talks like that one should happen regularly.
"It builds morale," he insisted. "I felt like a million bucks."
It's a good thing The Wolf of Wall Street is out on DVD and Blu-ray now—we're really jonesing for the real deal! (No offense, Jason.)
And what was DiCaprio himself up to while all this was going down? Just hanging out on a luxury yacht in St. Barts with his model girlfriend, Toni Garrn, no big deal.
The custom-built Lady Britt, Leo's pleasure cruiser of choice, is available to rent privately for $600,000 a week, according to the expert owner of SuperYachtFan.com, and boasts an air-conditioned gym, a sauna, a cinema, a giant waterslide, and a 1,000-title film library. A crew of 16 is included in the price, and there's room for 12 guests.
