'Robert Pattinson' revealed as Diablo Cody's talk-show sidekick [Updated]

July 27, 2010 |  4:32 pm


Like every great chat show host, Diablo Cody has revealed the Ed McMahon to her Johnny Carson, the Paul Shaffer to her David Letterman -- and it's none other than Robert Pattinson.


For the second installment of her mobile chat show, "Red Band Trailer," the screenwriter features comedian Chelsea Handler. After downloading with the E! star about booze and boys, Cody retires to her trailer couch and reviews her day with a body pillow featuring Pattinson's brooding face.

"Well, Robert Pattinson, I think we both learned a thing or two today," Cody waxes. ...

"One, that Chelsea is a wonderful and hospitable human being, and I'm not that bad myself."

We wonder if body-pillow Rob has to fight as hard to resist Cody's intoxicating scent? The Ministry also appreciates Cody's new mantra, used to button up her wholesome webisode:

"Until next time, take care of yourself. And it's not your fault."

We believe her. Adults who don't mind cussing can watch full, obscenity-peppered installments of "Red Band Trailer" here.

[For the record, 8:50 a.m. June 28: An earlier version of this post named Ed Sullivan as Johnny Carson's sidekick. Carson's guy was Ed McMahon.]
