When Jimmy Fallon landed in the ICU for 10 days for a hand injury (specifically something callled "ring avulsion"), he found the best way to pass the time was to watch TV. (Fitting, considering he's the host of The Tonight Show.) But in addition to The DUFF, did Bravo programming help heal his wounds? "I watched Real Housewives of New York," he recalled on air. Knew it. And it looks like his RHONY viewing led to some pretty deep thoughts. "But really I was watching TV and I was reading this meaning of life thing and I think, this is the meaning of my life. I belong in TV and I should be talking to people who are watching who are either in an ICU — or wherever you are, at home — if anyone's suffering at all, this is my job. I'm here to make you laugh. I want to make you have a good time. Get out of that hospital! Get out! I'm telling you, you're going to be fine. Listen to your nurses! They will get you out!"
And he wasn't joking about that whole meaning of life thing. He read all about it when he picked up a copy of Viktor E. Frankl's book, Man's Search for Meaning. "I started losing it halfway through because you just sit there. You're in a room. And I just started reading books about the meaning of life. I did!" he shared. "I absolutely loved it! I highlighted things in it. I know the meaning if everyone wants to know. We'll have a drink later. I'll tell you all about it. It's not as difficult as you'd think."
If he's hankering for even more RHONY goodness, he should check out the clip below.
