Jay Leno's illness was serious enough to cancel two shows last week, but the late-night host made light of it during his monologue when he returned to the air Monday night.
Ever topical, Leno linked his illness to the swine flu. "What happened was — and I think was a mistake — I ate a raw pig a friend brought back from Mexico. ... It was delicious," Leno joked.

"I've never spoken about this.... I had kind of a binge eating disorder where instead of dealing with my emotions, I would stuff them down with food," she told Extra. "I never threw up or starved myself."
DioGuardi said she went to a treatment center to help her with her illness, which stemmed in part from insecurity.

Fawcett hosted the party at her home Monday, the actress' friend Alana Stewart told People. Stewart also cleared up the belief that Fawcett only weighs 86 pounds after her son, Redmond O'Neal, suggested as much during a hearing for drug charges last week.
"Farrah is not 86 pounds," Stewart said. "Redmond is young and overreacted a little. Farrah has lost weight, but not that much. No, no, no."
