It looks as if the Jay Mohr-Alyssa Milano feud is really over, as the comedian on Friday apologized again for his "hurtful" comments about her weight and she graciously (and humorously) accepted. In a segment that Mohr said he has since removed from the podcast where it originated, the "Mohr Stories" host said that the "Mistresses" actress seemed "like she had a baby," made a crude comment about her "gut" and said that she looked like "was not wearing Spanx," according to reports . All this after the two attended NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series at Wynn Las Vegas on Dec. 6. Mohr hosted the event and Milano served as a presenter.

IRVINE 8:30 & 10:30pm Comedy Stand-up comic Jay Mohr has an impressive list of TV credits, including two seasons as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" and a year on "The Jeff Foxworthy Show." That's not to mention his own short-lived 1999 Fox series, "Action," a Hollywood satire about an obnoxious producer with an oversized ego. The New Jersey native with the rapier wit and rapid-fire delivery always dreamed of appearing on TV.

This comedian who is trying to make it as a football commentator is really pretty funny. Another plus is that he knows football and sports in general. And, despite the way he comes across on the air, his new colleagues say he is a good guy too. Jay Mohr just may work out. Mohr has joined the cast on Fox Sports Net's recently expanded "NFL This Morning." He first made a guest appearance, then got a regular role.

One of the smartest, funniest shows on television lasted only eight episodes on Fox. In 1999, Jay Mohr ("Jerry Maguire," "Last Comic Standing") starred as the flamboyantly amoral movie producer Peter Dragon in "Action." The behind-the-scenes Hollywood spoof -- populated by a prostitute-turned-producer, substance-abusing filmmakers and Buddy Hackett -- was too cutting edge even for Fox.
