    In the controversy that won't seem to die, Jay Leno has opened up to 60 Minutes about the period in which he was replaced by Conan O'Brien as host of the Tonight Show. Despite the fact that he was portrayed as the villain, Leno says, "I didn't quite understand that, but I never chose to answer any of those things or make fun of any other people involved. It's not my way." He also didn't sound like he was as in love with Jimmy Fallon as his successor. "It's not my decision, and I think I probably would have stayed if we didn't have an extremely qualified, young guy ready to jump in." If only Leno had some dollars to wipe away those tears.
