Reality star Kim Kardashian stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday and chatted with Jay Leno about her engagement to Kris Humphries... and her gargantuan 20.5 carat engagement ring. Jay questioned the authenticity of the jewel. "If it burns, it's not real, it's cubic," adding, "If it's fake, Mr. Humphries has some explaining to do."
Kim hesitantly handed over the ring to Leno, who placed it in a small metal holder and lit a match. The ring lit up immediately and turned black.
Lindsay Lohan received a surprising standing ovation when she made a guest appearance on the "Tonight Show," which was pre-taped on Monday and will air tonight.
The actress said her 120-day jail sentence was "shocking," adding that she felt "kind of numb." Lohan, 24, believes she has matured and can stay out of trouble. "I think that when, you know, being young and being in the position I was in, you don't really take the time to appreciate what you have and it's all kind of a whirlwind, and people make decisions for you. But I'm not a kid anymore -- I'm 24, I've made a lot of mistakes and I recognize that. I'm in the clear now, and as long as I stay focused, I can achieve what I want to achieve."
Actor and new father Owen Wilson appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Tuesday and revealed he received 24 stitches to his head after a recent surfing accident in Hawaii.
"I took on a wave that was probably too big for me. I went off the back and the board kinda caught air and the board came back and hit me in the forehead and I got 24 stitches," Wilson said.
After telling Leno about his brother's encounter with a shark, Owen admitted he was fearful of getting attacked as he paddled back to shore, bleeding. "I was thinking about the shark as I was paddling back in with a little blood dripping into the same cove where my brother was attacked recently!"

Late-night talk show host David Letterman made a rare appearance on Friday's "Live! With Regis and Kelly," talking about getting his life back together after his sex-in-the-workplace scandal broke last October.
"You take a look at the explosion," Letterman said on the show, "and it knocks you down and you wake up every morning and you're scared and you're depressed and sad."
Talk show host Conan O'Brien says he'd never do what competitor Jay Leno did to him.
In his first interview since being forced off the "Tonight Show," O'Brien speaks with Steve Kroft of "60 Minutes" and tells him, "Leno went and took that show back and I think in a similar situation, if roles had been reversed, I know -- I know me, I wouldn't have done that."
Many are wondering how it came to be that Conan O'Brien chose cable network TBS over FOX as his new late-night home... and the deal at FOX was certainly alluring...
If Coco had chosen FOX, he reportedly would have been guaranteed the job as host the Emmy Awards each year it aired on the network and would have been given primetime specials, including one after the Super Bowl.
