Terrance Howard in an interview promoting his movie ‘Dead man Down’ was asked about what it was like working with Oprah on the upcoming film “The Butler.” And he said this foolishness:

“To be able to make out with Oprah. To have love scenes with those tig ol’ bitties, I mean, she’s such a lovely, voluptuous woman. To be able to — she’s very, very, very beautiful. *bites lip* That was wonderful. That was wonderful.”

Oprah is being sued for sexual discrimination after the termination of a pregnant OWN employee.

Carolyn Hommel, former senior director of scheduling and acquisitions at OWN, says she was fired after she got knocked up.

She says her supervisor, Michael Garner, gave her a “negative and untruthful performance” review after she became pregnant, which ruined her chances for a promotion.  When she went on maternity leave, her job was eliminated and she was passed over for a VP positon, which instead went to a temp.

Oprah’s Full Interview With Lance Armstrong

Written on January 18, 2013 by

Filed Under: Athletes, Interviews, Let's Get High, Oprah Winfrey, Sports Kibble

Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Lance Armstrong is all people have been talking about today.  Lance finally admitted to using performance enhancing drugs while competing in the Tour Du France. He said that he used EPO, testosterone, human growth hormone and other banned substances during his career.

He pretty much said it wasn’t his fault. “I didn’t invent the culture, but I didn’t try to stop the culture, and that’s my mistake, and that’s what I have to be sorry for, and that’s what something and the sport is now paying the price because of that,” he added. “So I am sorry for that. I don’t think — I didn’t have access to anything else that nobody else did.

He said, “I had this exercise because I kept hearing I’m a drug cheat. I’m a cheat. I’m a cheater. And I went in and just looked up the definition of cheat. . . . And the definition of cheat is to gain an advantage on a rival or foe that they don’t have. I didn’t view it that way. I viewed it as a level playing field.”

USADA chief executive officer Travis Tygart said, “Tonight, Lance Armstrong finally acknowledged that his cycling career was built on a powerful combination of doping and deceit. His admission that he doped throughout his career is a small step in the right direction. But if he is sincere in his desire to correct his past mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities.”

Lance’s LIVESTRONG Foundation released a statement saying:

“We at the LIVESTRONG Foundation are disappointed by the news that Lance Armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, including us.” Source

It’s a little anticlimactic, no? Plus he doesn’t seem to have any remorse.  So I feel very meh about this.  What are your thoughts?

Oprah comes clean about her struggling magazine.

During a recent conference she said, “Obviously, the show was helping in ways that you know I hadn’t accounted for.

“I’m not interested, you know, in bleeding money.”

She said the magazine, which experienced a 22 percent drop in newsstand sales after her show went off the air, will stop publishing if it’s not profitable. Source

Although, she could technically afford to just put out the magazine for free. Yes, she’s that GD rich.

Oprah Winfrey is selling the house she bought for her father and forcing her step-mother out.  But her stepmother, Babrara, is not having it.  She’s furious!
Barbara says, “Why should I be put out, other than the fact that you can do it? Because you’re a bully, and that’s what bullies do?”

Oprah offered to give Barbara a property in North Tennessee plus a Mercedes Benz she co-owned with Vernon, but Barb says that’s not good enough.

“My credit and reputation have been destroyed. It’s worth more than a home in north Nashville and a car that has 101,000 miles on it.” Source,

She better take the deal and shut the hell up.  Because Oprah will silence her…in the permanent kind of silent.

Oprah Turned Down ‘Masturbating Maid’ Role

Written on October 9, 2012 by

Filed Under: New Movies, Oprah Winfrey

Image Source

Lee Daniels wanted Oprah Winfrey to play a masturbating maid in his upcoming film ‘The Paperboy” but she turned it down. Go figure!  The role went to Macy Gray instead.

He said, “Everybody has (their) own interpretation. She (Ophra) would have played it very stoic, you know, something very different. I think Macy Gray was the right choice after all.”

He thinks Macy’s portrayal of Anita is closer to what he learned about maids growing up than those portrayed in “The Help.”

He adds, “I just didn’t think that the maids were right (in The Help), because I had so many family members that were maids. I really wanted to tell my version.”

“The Paperboy” hits theaters on Oct. 17. Source

Oprah loves playing down trodden bishes.  So I’m sure she was ready to jump at that maid role.  But then she heard she’d have to play with her diddle on screen and we all know that type of behavior is reserved for Gayle.

She said, “[Rihanna] learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown — exactly what she needed to learn from her father. I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it. I have no judgment about it.

“That’s why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever. If that’s how you choose to lead your life, that’s really okay.” Source

Rihanna Talks About Chris in New Oprah Interview…

http://i4.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article1249928.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/Rihanna+interviewed+by+Oprah+Winfrey

Image Source

Rihanna was interviewd by Oprah and in the interview, she talked about

the 2009 altercation between her and then boyfriend Chris Brown.

She said, “I lost my best friend and everything I knew switched in a night. And I couldn’t control that. So I had to deal with that, and that’s not easy for me to understand or interpret and it’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching. So it was hard for me to even pay attention to my mind and figuring things out because now it became a circus and I felt protective. I felt like the only person they hate right now is him.

“It was a weird, confusing space to be in.

“Because as angry as I was – as angry and hurt and betrayed – I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help. And who’s going to help him? Nobody’s going to say he needs help, everybody’s going to say he’s a monster, without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him.”

Peep a clip below:

I can see how she feels.  A lot of times victims identify with their attackers.  And it’s o

bvious that she’s still affected by this.  At the same time she seems to be working past it considering her recent contact with him.

Chris  is Mad about Rih’s Oprah Interview…

Image Source

Breezy is apparently over anyone talking about his and rihanna’s 3 year old altercation that left her bruised, bleeding and battered.

A source told RadarOnline.com, “Chris is just confused about Rihanna’s decision to bring up the past again and again — this time in an interview with Oprah. Rihanna has previously given wide ranging interviews about the beating to Diane Sawyer and several print magazines. Chris just doesn’t think it’s productive or relevant to rehash the events since essentially nothing new is being revealed in the interview Rihanna has done with Oprah. Chris doesn’t begrudge Rihanna at all for talking about it but he thinks that in order for them to both move forward and not be defined by that one night, it would be better to stop bringing it up.”

Rihanna’s interview airs on Oprah’s Next Chapter this Sunday at 9 pm on OWN. Source

I can understand why he wants to move on.  No one wants their past mistakes or indescretions to be constantly brought up.  But considering the level of celebrity both he and Rihanna have and the heinous nature of the crime he committed, he’s going to be dealing with this for the rest of his life.

On a recently aired episode of her OWN show she has her first traditional Indian meal and says to her hosts, ‘I heard some Indian people eat with their hands still.’

The thing is that Indian food is traditionally eaten with the hands, so it looked like Oprah was looking down on her hosts and their culture.
In response a popular Indian columnist described Oprah as, “Myopic, unaware, ignorant and gauche. This was Middle America at its best worst.” Source

OWN to Lose Big This Year.

More Details…

 

Financial analysts have announced that Oprah’s OWN network could lose almost $150 million this year.

Own had paid a $15 million sum from what should have been a $40 million contract with Rosie for her now cancelled show. They also suggest that further cuts are likely. “Staff reduction and the cancellation of ‘The Rosie Show’ are clear signs that the network is struggling,” said Snl Kagan analyst Derek Baine, before suggesting that further financial constraints are necessary if Own want to avoid having the plug pulled on them by Discovery Communications.

A spokesman for Discovery, refuted the extent of the problems, saying that the report is “riddled with inaccuracies and bad information.”

Oprah said, “the economics of a startup cable network just don’t work with the cost structure that was in place.” Source

If you ask me, O needs to get out now before this gets any worse.  Cus I don’t know anyone who’s checking for this channel.

Rosie and Oprah are still slinging mud.

More Details…

 

Following the cancellation of Rosie’s OWN show, the two are reportedly really pissed at each other.

A source said, “Oprah gave Rosie every possible chance to turn things around before she gave her the ax. And Rosie didn’t take her firing lightly. She went off on Oprah and told her to “Drop dead!”

Oprah suggested she talk less about herself and let the guests open up more.

“Rosie refused to listen,” said the source. “It was her way or the highway, and Oprah couldn’t get through to her. Rosie thought she knew it all.”

The source added that Rosie was really nasty and rude behind the scenes. “Rosie cursed, screamed and berated her staff all the time. No one escaped her wrath. She was always ranting that the people working on her show — many of whom were Oprah’s former employees — were inadequate. As the ratings continued to sink lower, Rosie’s roar got even louder. It was only when several staff members gave notices that Oprah finally became aware of the chaos surrounding Rosie. Oprah has always treated her employees like family, and she expected nothing less from Rosie. Oprah knew she had to do something fast.”

Rosie’s former co-host, Babara Walters tried to give Oprah advice on how to deal with her.

 “Barbara gave Oprah an earful,” said the insider. “She explained that while Rosie was explosive on the air, most people rarely saw the temper tantrum-throwing and mean-spirited Rosie that she experienced firsthand at “The View.” Source

Hell, I oculda told Oprah that Rosie was a nasty bish.  She should have known better than to give that broad a paycheck.

49. Is Bobbi Kris dating her brother?

More Details…

Bobby Kris is reportedly involved with Nicholas Gordon, the 22-year-old guy who Whitney raised like her own son.

Witnesses said that they Bobbi lip kissing her unofficial adopted brother, Nicholas Gordon, who lives with her in Whitney Houston‘s former townhouse in Atlanta.

The PDA continued at a local target.

Two sources said, “Bobbi and Nick were in the music section and then all over the. Bobbi was kissing him on the mouth and holding hands. They were laughing and smiling and seemed SO happy.

“She was wearing a black short pencil bandage skirt with a black top and black knee high boots. Her hair and makeup were all done too, like she was going to go out on the town. He was in all black — black jeans, black shirt, earrings and a black wide-brimmed hat.” Source

They may not be blood siblings but they were raised as siblings so this is a little weird to me.  All I can think of is the 1986 TV movie “Sin of Innocence.” I know y’all know what I’m talking about.

Jermaine wrote about his deep feelings about Whitney in his 2011 autobiography but he didn’t admit to an affair. The two apparently remained friends up until her death last month. Source

Oh see this is a problem.  Everyone is looking sideways at Bobby.  But I’m gonna bet it all started with Jermaine.  Jackson peen ain’t good fer nobody!

Is Oprah ditching OWN to Return to Acting

Written on March 2, 2012 by

Filed Under: New Movies, Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is said to be making her big screen comeback in a Lee Daniels film called ‘The Butler.’  The movie is about a White House butler who served under 8 U.S. presidents.

Oprah’s OWN Network partners at the Discovery Channel think Oprah is abandoning ship.

A source said, “When Oprah took over as new network CEO last July, she assured execs she’d take firm hold of the reins.

“When ratings finally moved up slightly this year, execs were cautiously optimistic that Oprah’s hands-on involvement would capture a bigger audience.

“But now they feel she’s abandoning them to resurrect her movie career. Oprah thinks she can do both, but OWN execs feel that this is a crucial year – and they’re suddenly being deserted by their own!” Source

Hell she needs to just shut that thing down.  Oprah, you tried…how about you just go on vacation or something.  Because we’re not interested.

Oprah’s Security Have it Out With Indian Photographers

Written on January 23, 2012 by

Filed Under: Oprah Winfrey

Oprah was in India recently visiting a center where child widows are abandoned by their families.  Her bodyguards apparently got into a fight with some local photographers.  The photogs were refused entry so one decided to climb a wall to film Oprah.  That pissed off the bodyguards so they ‘manhandled’ him.  The other photographers got pissed so they began stoning the bodyguards.

The police were called and held Oprah’s security team until they wrote a letter of apology to the media

Everything about this story is hilarious…EVERYTHING.  PS-I think I’m going to start carrying rocks in my pocket for situations where people piss me off.  Being stoned will make em think twice about offending me again.

Did Wendy Lie About Oprah Letter?…Gayle Says, ‘Yes!’

Written on December 7, 2011 by

Filed Under: Oprah Winfrey, You Lie!

Last week, Wendy Williams read a letter from Oprah during the Hot Topics segment of her show.  Wendy had said a few days earlier that Oprah was mad at her bestie Gayle King for leaving the OWN Network to get her own show on CBS.  Well, she said that Oprah wrote her personally to refute the rumor.

It read:

“I know there’s been some speculation that Gayle and Oprah had a falling out because Gayle will be hosting the new morning show on CBS. I wanted to make sure everyone knows that there is only happiness for Gayle and this wonderful opportunity.
Love, Oprah.

P.S. Stay black!”
Gayle called Wendy a big fat liar saying that Oprah never wrote the letter.

She said, “The letter that I heard Wendy read – I didn’t see it – I know Oprah never wrote a letter to Wendy. I said [to Oprah] ‘I’m getting all these messages that you wrote a letter to Wendy,’ and she goes, ‘Gayle, you know more than anybody knows that that’s not true,’ number one. Number two, when Wendy was saying, ‘You know, I think it’s gonna put a dent in their friendship?’ When this opportunity was presented to me – and make no mistake; it is an opportunity – the first people I talked to were Oprah, my son and my daughter. And I said, ‘I don’t know; I don’t know. They approached me, but I don’t even know if I should entertain it,’ … [Oprah] said, ‘Are you kidding? This is so what you do, the news is what you love … you would be crazy to pass it up!’” Source

I can’t see Wendy making up such a big lie…especially one that could be checked.  At the same time I was pretty surprised that Lady O would write Wendy.  Nothing against Wendy but if Oprah hasn’t reached out to her previously to refute any of the rumors Wendy has repeated about her I don’t know why she would do it now.  So, thoughts? Who’s telling the truth here?

Oprah Receives Honorary Degree

Written on June 28, 2011 by

Filed Under: Education, Oprah Winfrey

Oprah received an honorary degree from the University of the Free State in South Africa this past Friday.

The school is infamous after an incident where four white students were videotaped miming spiking a stew with urine then having the black housekeeping staff eat the stew. Oprah called the housekeepers in the vid up to the stage during the ceremony.

She said: “What has happened here at Free State in terms of racial reconciliation, of peace, of harmony, of one heart understanding and opening itself to another heart is nothing short of a miracle. It is truly what the new South Africa is all about.” Source

Even with progress, I still don’t know if I’d be able to have anything to do with that institution.  But to each his own.

Oprah is Pissed @ Aretha

Written on March 9, 2011 by

Filed Under: Got Beef?, Oprah Winfrey

Sources say that Oprah Winfrey is mad because Aretha Franklin chose to give her first post surgery interview to Wendy Williams instead of her.
The National Enquirer reports:

OPRAH WINFREY became “rip-roaring furious” that ARETHA FRANKLIN showed her NO respect by granting one of her fierce TV rivals a major interview over the desperate battle she’s waging with cancer, The ENQUIRER has learned.

Instead of choosing the undisputed Queen of Talk to describe her emergency surgery and courageous struggle, the Queen of Soul gave the first interview to WENDY WILLIAMS.
“Oprah is about as angry as can be,” said an insider.
“This is the final season of her show, and she’s been pushing to land all the big ‘gets’ out there. Oprah is embarrassed that Aretha – a legend – chose Wendy, who is a relative newcomer in the TV talk show world.”
While Oprah, 57, gives Wendy, 46, credit for snagging the much-coveted sit-down with Aretha, she’s still “steaming,” adds the insider, telling pals that Wendy’s show is “a long way” from hers, and criticizing it for being “silly and gossipy.”
Aretha underwent surgery in December but has never publicly revealed the nature of her health issues. However, The ENQUIRER has exclusively reported that she is fighting pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly forms of the disease.
Following her operation, the 68-year-old “Respect” singer made her spotlight appearance in a videotaped message that was broadcast during the Grammy Awards.
Aretha shocked fans by looking like she had lost about 80 pounds from her once 300-pound frame. Because of the intense curiosity about Aretha’s condition, scoring an interview with Aretha was a major coup for Wendy.
Yet Oprah insisted she would’ve been able to outdo Wendy by using her clout to pack her show with legendary heavy hitters paying homage to the musical icon.
“Oprah was not going to keep the whole interview on the illness, which she knows Aretha is reluctant to fully discuss,” said the source.
“She was going to get Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown Records, for a touching tribute. But instead, Aretha chose Wendy – and Oprah is NOT happy!” Source

I hope this isn’t true.  Because it’s petty.  Oprah’s on her way out and should be happy to help out another woman just trying to move up in the ranks.  I don’t know about you guys but Wendy’s come a long way and I am proud of her.

Oprah’s Old Boo is Speaking Out

Written on February 19, 2011 by

Filed Under: Oprah Winfrey

Reginald Chevalier, one of Oprah’s former flames, is telling all.  He said they met when he appeared on her show in ’85. “She was doing a segment on look-alikes and at the time I looked like Billy Dee Williams. She later confided that she instructed her producers to keep me backstage after the show. She threatened to fire them, if I got away. She took me to lunch at the Water Tower restaurant and ordered stuffed mashed potatoes for both of us.” He says that their affair began that day.

He continued, “I remember how she loved taking candle-lit baths before going to bed. We took lots of them together. We spent many nights together in her new condo which she loved so much. I would be watching TV and she would be working on her next day’s show. ..Besides going to restaurants for lunches and dinners, to stores to buy gifts for employees and friends—-Oprah is generous with stuff-we would go to the Bears games because I was friends with one of the players. We occasionally had dinner with Michael Jordan and his wife, Juanita, or with Danny Glover, [Oprah's co-star in The Color Purple.]

“I noticed a few times she would bring up the subject of marriage and ask me if this was something I believed in. I think at that time Oprah was ready to take the plunge, and I was the chosen one… but I wasn’t interested in getting serious…. Oprah took me to her mother’s house for dinner in Milwaukee and that’s where I met Jeffrey, her gay brother [who died of AIDS in 1989]. Oprah said to him, “You stay away from this guy. He’s mine.”

Reggie said their 7 year age difference didn’t bother either of them.  He even went as her date to the Chicago premiere of The Color Purple.

He adds, “Oprah bought a purple mink coat for the occasion and wanted me to wear purple mink as well but I just couldn’t do it.” Their photo appeared in the Chicago newspapers. “If you look carefully, you can see part of Gayle King’s face in the lower left of the picture.  Gayle was always around. Everywhere we went she was there. She was Oprah’s shadow.

“Things came crashing to a halt in April 1986.  I had been out of town on a modeling assignment and when I returned to the Water Tower condo, my key wouldn’t work. The concierge informed me that the locks had been changed. Oprah had left a box for me filled with all my belongings. On a yellow envelope she had written: ‘Sorry, things aren’t working between us. Oprah Winfrey.’ That was it. No phone call. No good-bye. Nothing. She was as cold as ice…. A few weeks later Stedman was on the scene—full time.” Source

Poor Reggie, I guess he was really hurt.  But um, that was, what, 25 years ago. Brotha move on!

Oprah’s Mom Collapses After Oprah’s Big Reveal

Written on February 2, 2011 by

Filed Under: Family Matters, Oprah Winfrey

Oprah recently revealed a big secret on her show, that she had a half sister named Patricia that her mother never told her about.

Well apparently Oprah’s mom, Vernita Lee, never planned on the info coming to light.  In fact she was so upset about the show that she collapsed after it aired.

“Poor Vernita never wanted the show to happen,” a family insider told The ENQUIRER.

“She had kept the secret of Patricia’s birth to herself for 47 years.
“She never wanted to meet Patricia and certainly didn’t want Oprah involved.”
“But no one ever took Vernita’s feelings into consideration,” maintained the source. “Once Patricia agreed to do the show, Oprah had tunnel vision – big ratings were all she could see.”
“Vernita does what Oprah tells he rto do – because Oprah pays the bills,” divulged the insider.
“So when Oprah told Vernita they were doing a show and she wanted Vernita to appear, she felt she had no choice. They even taped a segment at Vernita’s Milwaukee condo, because she was too weak to travel to Oprah’s Chicago studio.
“Vernita was embarrassed by the show because she believed it made her look like a loose woman and a bad mother.
“She felt stripped of her dignity. She had hoped she’d take the secret about Patricia to her grave.” Source

If this is true it’s really sad.  That’s why you should NEVER become reliant on ANYone for money because you’re destined to feel indebted to them forever.

Recent promos for Oprah’s show today have been talking about a huge secret she planned on revealing.  Now we know that the secret is that she’s got a half sister named Patricia.  Oprah’s mom, Vernita, had a daughter before Oprah was born and gave her up for adoption.  Patricia moved from foster home to foster home until being adopted at the age of 7. 

Vernita never told Oprah about her sister.  The two have had a little bit of time to get to know each other.  And today is the first day Ophra is introducing her to the world. Source

Oprah’s Mom is PISSED

Written on December 21, 2010 by

Filed Under: Family Matters, Interviews, Oprah Winfrey

Oprah recently sat down with Barbara Walters for an interview and during it she referred to her best friend Gayle as the mother she never had.

Well this statement really upset Oprah’s mom Vernita Lee.

A family friend said, “Vernita is devastated.

“It was the final straw after years of insults and betrayals. She just doesn’t understand why Oprah still has to be so cruel to her.”
Vernita was really excited that Oprah sat down with Barb for the interview until she watched it.

The friend continued, “But her joy turned to tears and embarrassment as Oprah described her friendship with Gayle. Vernita knows she wasn’t the perfect mother, but she loves Oprah, and she is hurt by the way her daughter put her down in public.
“Vernita says Oprah keeps bringing up the fact that she was the result of a one-night stand, that Vernita didn’t protect Oprah from abuse or help her when she was raped when she was 9 years old .
“She wishes Oprah would forgive her after all these years.” Source

Here’s the thing.  I feel for Vernita.  But after a child feels betrayed by a parent there’s almost nothing that can regain that trust.

Oprah sat down with Barbara Walters for a one-on-one interview in which she spoke about her alleged lesbian relationship with best friend Gayle, her fiancé, Steadman and her new network.

 Oprah said: “I’m not a lesbian. I’m not even kind of a lesbian. And the reason why [the rumor] irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I’m lying. That’s number one. Number two … why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life.

 “She (Gayle) is … the mother I never had. She is … the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don’t know a better person. I don’t know a better person,” Winfrey said while choking up.

“It’s making me cry because I’m thinking about … how much … I probably have never told her that. Tissue, please. I now need tissue. I’ve never told her that.”

You can watch the entire interview when it airs tonight at 9pm on ABC.

Halle Post…

Filed Under: Halle Berry, Oprah Winfrey

Halle says that rumors that she’s going to play Oprah in a biopic are not true.  She recently sat down with Ellen and dismissed the rumors.

She said, “I’m not going to play Oprah, no. I was just like (pretends to be on the phone), ‘Hey, Oprah, Am I playing you? Just tell me because nobody has told me this.’ I don’t know where these rumors come from.”

She added that she doesn’t even know if the movie is being made but that doesn’t mean she’s opposed to playing the role if she was offered.

She said, “I don’t know. Not that I wouldn’t want to play Oprah if there was a movie. I just don’t know how this stuff gets made up.” Source

Halle playing Oprah is about as ridiculous as Halle playing Aretha Franklin.  I can’t and I won’t support this nonsense.

In Other Halle News…

Halle recently suffered a parents worst nightmare when she lost her daughter Nahla in a department store.

She recalled: “All of a sudden, I looked down at a price tag or something, and she toddled off for what seemed like two seconds. The next thing I know, I looked back around and it was like, Whosh! Gone! And I said, ‘Nahla? Nahla? Nahla?’ Gone. My heart just started … I’m like, Close the store! Shut the door! My daughter’s gone!’

“Talk about sweating. And you just freak out for about 30 seconds. I came undone. I think my head projected off my body.

But Nahla was safe nearby.

Halle said, “She was right next to me – in a rounder of clothes where the pants were hanging. Right there. And after I became a lunatic and totally embarrassed myself, she stuck her head out and was like, ‘Hi.’ ” Source

WHY do kids love doing that to their parents?  I did that more than once to my mom but she was always as cool as a cucumber.  She wouldn’t even call out for me.  I’d have to find her.  Once I walked up to the customer service desk at Caldors and told them, “Listen, my mom is lost and I need you to find her.”  You can imagine her face when they got on the loud speaker and said, “Will Lo’s mom please report to customer service.  She says you’re lost and need to be found NOW.” That’ll learn ya Patty!

Salutations cats and kittens!

As you know, it has always been my dream to be a star. However my uber shy personality as well as a lack of bankable talent has prevented me from my rightful place in the spotlight.

I realized one day that my obsession with entertainment coupled with my snarky writing abilities and my gift for gab could be spun into my dream job…I could be a star.

So I’ve been on my grind for years. I’ve broken out of my shell, sharpened and honed my super celebrity sleuth skills and waited for the perfect opportunity to come along so I could pounce on it.

So that brings us to this competition. Oprah and the Oprah Winfrey Network is searching for the next TV star to host a show on her new net.

What would my show be? I’d love to interview celebrities and hit the red carpet. But I also want to drag a few of my fellow average Joes and Janes into the spotlight with me and highlight extraordinary deeds.

If you want to see me realize my dreams and can endure me and my antics on your TV screen for an hour then vote for me to be the next TV star on OWN!!!

Alls ya gotta do is go to MY AUDITION and vote. If I get this opportunity I will be forever in your debt. Oh, and you can vote as many times as you want! Thank you my lovelies!

Everyone Wants to Work for Oprah

Written on June 20, 2010 by

Oprah is one of the most generous people in the world.  She recently gave her O Magazine staff iPads, leather carrying cases and checks for $10K!  This isn’t the first time she’s given big gifts to her employees.  Last year she sent the staff of her show on a 10-day Mediterranean cruise.  All expenses were paid and they could even bring their family with them.  Then back in 2005 she gave the O Magazine staff checks for $5K to celebrate the magazines’ 5th anniversary. Source

I can’t wait to work for you Lady O      The best thing I ever got from a boss was probably a $25 gift card to Sephora.  And when I got there I had to come out of pocket just to buy one eye shadow. Womp, womp.

Man Sends in ‘Suspicious’ Vid to Oprah

Written on May 31, 2010 by

Filed Under: Oprah Winfrey

 

As you know Oprah is searching for the next TV star who will have a show on her new network, OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network).  And yours truly is one of the almost 1,600 people competing to win.  To enter you have to submit an audition video as well as complete an application.

One particular video was flagged before it was uploaded and the authorities had to get involved.

The company issued a statement that reads:

“Oprah.com received a suspicious video submission for ‘Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star,’ a new series premiering on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network in January 2011. OWN’s protocol and online safeguards rejected the video, and the proper authorities were notified.”

AOL News reports that law enforcement sources said the “suspicious” video was of a man who was making threatening remarks while in possession of a Mac 10 machine gun.  No word on if he was holding the gun or if it was just visible in the shot.  The report adds that he was questioned by police and determined not to be a threat.  He claims he’s an actor.  Source

Thankfully this is nothing (well as far as we know anyway).  But seriously, what made him think that threatening Oprah and brandishing a gun (albeit fake)was a good idea.  I can just see him setting up the tripod thinking, “Boy oh boy, that Oprah is gonna LOVE this!”

FAIL!

Lady O’s Angel Network is closing up shop. She has shut down the charity that she started back in 1997. But it’s done a lot of good in the past 13 years raising over $80 million to help build 55 schools in 12 countries as well as helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
One of her reps says, “We plan to dissolve as a public charity, after final disbursement of funds has been completed.

“Oprah remains deeply committed to philanthropy, and her new cable network – OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network – will continue to highlight charitable organizations in conjunction with its programing in the years ahead.” Source

I have no doubt that she’ll find another way to give back. One thing about O is that she shares the wealth as much as she accumulates it.

Naomi Sits Down With Lady O

Written on May 5, 2010 by

Filed Under: Interviews, Naomi Campbell, Oprah Winfrey

Naomi Campbell went on Oprah on Monday and talked about everything from her anger management to her boyfriend Vlad.

Oprah: Whether it’s a cab driver or somebody on a plane or your own housekeeper and you don’t get immediately what you want, you said you see red.

Naomi: Yes.

Oprah: And then what?

Naomi: Then I don’t see.

Oprah: You just act.

Naomi: I act out.

“I feel remorseful. I feel ashamed. I feel for them,” she says. “[I think,] ‘What have I done to them?’ If I’ve hurt them.”

“I think it comes from a deeper place than that with me. It comes from another type of emotional disorder, because it’s not just, ‘I don’t get what I want. I throw,’” she says. “It comes from, I think, an abandonment issue, and it comes from also just trying to build up a family around me that’s not my immediate family. And if I feel a mistrust, then I really just…all my cards go down.”

“I do feel that I abandoned her,” Naomi’s mom Valerie said on the show. “Looking back on that, you know, you sort of realize that material possessions are not the only thing that a child needs. But, sometimes, that child needs its biological mother.”

Naomi starts crying after her mother’s words…

“What are the tears for?” Oprah asks.

“I don’t know. Just my mom being here and her speaking about, you know, of course I understand the sacrifice she had to make,” she says. “So for me, I guess, I want to do better. I want to be a better person. I’m not proud of the things I’ve done in my life, and I’m striving to be a better person and to find peace.”

While staying at Nelson Mandela’s home in South Africa, Naomi says she met Charles ‘Blood Diamond’ Taylor briefly. “[Taylor] wasn’t invited, and none of us knew who he was. He wasn’t part of our group,” she says. “But he did show up and we understood who he was after it was explained.”

Naomi says she didn’t want to answer questions about Taylor because she doesn’t want to be involved in his case.

Oprah is so inspired by the first lady’s fashion sense that she’s going to invest in J. Crew.

She said: “The very first time I saw the First Lady, even before she became the First Lady, wearing J. Crew – full disclosure here – I went and bought some J.Crew stock and that was a very good decision.”

Speaking to J. Crew executive creative director Jenna Lyons on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’, she said: “I’m wearing J. Crew head-to-toe and the thing that excites me the most – I didn’t know you guys did shoes!” Source

With the exception of the jumpsuit Michelle had on the other day, I’d say she hits it out of the park on a pretty consistent basis.

Nadya Suleman was on Oprah yesterday and talked about what her last year has been like.

“I live every single day every hour of the day with a tremendous amount of guilt. And I feel guilty when I hold the one or two and then that I can’t be there for the others. And they’re crying. And then I feel guilty. Look at the older ones. They all have different unique needs. And I’ll live with this forever. But all I can do now is keep on going, keep moving. Keep on trying to be the most devoted mother I can be.

“Looking back, I’ve always coveted that connection, that attachment to another being. And the connection felt safer with children than with a significant other, more predictable. The security — I was hungering for the security.

“We’re surviving,” she said. “We’re so busy going, going, going, moving, moving, moving, trying to keep up that you don’t have time to think, to reflect, to feel anything. And it is a choice. I own all of the responsibility for my poor choices in the past.

“Do I regret [it]?” she asked. “You can’t regret children. But the choices were childish. They were immature. They were selfish. Are we defined by our choices? Our behavior? Our actions? No. I don’t believe that defines our worth. “I feel as though I wasn’t thinking at that time,” she continued. “If I could go back, would I make different choices? Maybe. At this point, I know and I need to teach my children that we need to learn, we need to grow, we need to keep on growing and transcending, and we need to make the best possible choices. And when we make poor choices, all you can do is really, really learn from that and grow from that. Try not to repeat it.” Source

Well that was probably the most honest and lucid I’ve ever heard her sound. Now let’s see how long the sanity lasts when the octuplets hit the terrible twos.

Here’s a short vid of what happened when Oprah sent a camera crew to Nadya’s house.

Considering she’s got 14 kids, she didn’t do so bad if you ask me.

Oprah Winfrey is finally speaking out about what she calls a ‘so-called biography’ by Kitty Kelly.

She was at The New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards on Monday to present her best friend Gayle with an award. Addressing the audience, she said, “Last week was a rough week for Gayle when a so-called biography came out. Every day she’s getting herself more and more worked up about all of my new daddies that are now showing up. New daddies who are saying, ‘Hello daughter, call me, I need a new roof.’ Well, this too shall pass.” Source

“I never did get no answer. If I did, it didn’t get to me,” he told The Post. “I’d like her to call me.”

He says he doesn’t want her stacks, he just wants to get to know her before he dies. Source

Something tells me Oprah could care less.  If she really wanted to get to know him or find out she would have done so a long time ago.  Sidebar, I find the sight of his face extremely horrific.  He’s staring into my soul through the cloud of glaucoma and threatening to eat it.

A new tell all by Kitty Kelly dishes on an Oprah Winfrey we’ve never known. In the new book she says that Oprah Dated John Tesh back in the day and he broke up with her because she’s black.

Here’s an excerpt:

“He said one night he looked down and saw his white body next to her black body and couldn’t take it anymore.

“He walked out in the middle of the night. … He told me he later felt very guilty about it.”

Oprah’s rep said that she will not be commenting on the new book that also talks about Oprah’s Ding Dong addiction and frequent visits to a local restaurant called the Chicken shack. Source

I can’t read that excerpt without laughing my ass off. I don’t know how factual it is, but if this snippett is any indication of the rest of the book I just might have to pick it up for humor’s sake.

Howard Stern decided to weigh in on Gabby Sidibe on his Sirius satellite radio show. He said, “There’s the most enormous, fat black chick I’ve ever seen. She is enormous. You feel bad because everyone’s pretending she’s a part of show business and she’s never going to be in another movie. She really should have gotten the Best Actress award because she’s never going to have another shot. What movie is she gonna be in? ‘Blind Side 2?’ She could be the football player, take out the whole front line.

“It’s so sad you want to say to her, listen honey, you got a little money in the bank, go get yourself thin. You’re gonna die. And now she’s famous and she’ll never get another acting job.”

Howard and co-host Robin Quivers said Oprah was lying to her by saying she’s going to have a career in Hollywood. “Come on, be honest with the girl. Look in that room. Who else do you look like? Those are the people that work all the time,” Robin agreed. Source

Hmm, well Howard, yes she’s fat. She’s black. Hell, she may even be ugly. But damnit she’s here! Know who else said that? Whoopi Goldberg in ‘The Color Purple.’ Like Gabby she’s never been the picture perfect example of what a Hollywood actress should look like. But bitch has had an amazing career.

We told you a little while ago about Gospel singer BeBe Winans being arrested for domestic abuse. He was set to go on Oprah, but the show was canceled because Oprah told fellow woman beater Chris Brown that she wouldn’t have him on her show. So she had to save face and cancel BeBe’s appearance. Well the case against BeBe has been dismissed and BeBe may get his chance to sit on Lady O’s couch. Here’s the thing, the case was only dismissed because BeBe agreed to see a counselor who later said BeBe didn’t need treatment. Source

My question is: Did he do it? There hasn’t been an admission or denial of the assault. Do you think Oprah should have him on her show?

Thanks Christal!

Gayle is refuting gay rumors again. She said in a recent interview:

“The thing [is], if we were gay, we would tell you. We would so tell you. We wouldn’t try to keep that a secret because there’s nothing wrong with being gay. So if we were, we would tell you. The truth of the matter is we’re not. It’s hard enough for me to get a date on a Saturday night as it is.

“This isn’t a rumor I’m trying to continue to explore, but no there’s nothing, there’s nothing wrong with it. I love that question. That never bothers me because it’s so silly.” Source

I don’t think they’re gay…honestly. I think they’ve just got that bond. Anytime you’re willing to share your drawers with someone means that you love them dearly.

Speaking of Oprah, Sarah Palin did an interview with her and spoke about what her new focus is.

“I’m concentrating on 2010 and making sure that we have issues tackled as Americans, to make sure that we’re on the right road,” Palin told Oprah.

Oprah asked her about the presidency further and she said, “It’s not on my radar screen right now,” she said.

“Clearer and clearer every day, what I’m seeing is you don’t need a title to make a difference. Any ordinary American can seize opportunities to let their voice be heard, to speak up on an issue or for a candidate that they believe in, and they can make a difference.” Source

Sarah Palin, YOU LIE! Actually, I don’t know what’s in her heart but I’d put down $5.67 that she’ll at least throw her name in the hat in three years…just you wait and see. Anyone in?

Lady O’s production company is apologizing to viewer after making false claims about the benefits of living in Dubai. During an interview with Dr. Lamees Hamdan, a Dubai woman who launched a successful business the audience was told.

“Thanks to this country’s (U.A.E.’s) rich oil supplies, the government provides its citizens with free water, electricity and health care. The best part? No income tax!”
Fail! The statement isn’t entirely true.  They don’t pay taxes but don’t get help from the state for utilities.

A statement from Harpo reads, “It was never the intention of the Oprah show to misrepresent the people of Dubai. Dr. Hamdan appeared live on our program to speak about her personal life experience as a citizen of Dubai. We apologize if any of our viewers were offended.” Source

Bobby Brown says it’s not all his fault…his split with Whitney and her drug use that is.  He spoke out regarding the interview she did with Oprah.  He says, “I think we corrupted each other…I don’t think she hurt me or I hurt her in any way. I just think we had a 14-year marriage that had its ups and downs, and not many people understood it. I used an awful lot and can’t take that back. It’s a powerful drug. I just think I was bored. I had just gotten married, and things [weren’t] right and I turned to alcohol and drugs.”

In other news though, things are looking up for him.  He’ll be a part of the latest cast for VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club. Source

Well there you have it.  Granted Bobby was, and is a big ole hot mess.  But I’m sure he didn’t force the drugs on her. She had enough money, opportunity and support to get outta that situation.  I guess it worked, it worked for her, it worked, it worked for her.

“At one point she says, ‘I didn’t get out of my pajamas for seven months’. She talks about doing the drugs and sitting in the house and the two of them going, ‘What are we doing?’”
Oprah added: “She said, ‘I want to tell my story, I want to tell the truth.’ She talks about when it started to go wrong after ‘The Bodyguard’ – that was a long time ago.
“The thing most shocking to me is that Whitney tried to make herself smaller to fit in a marriage so the man could be bigger. How many women have done that? I deeply felt for her. She was trying to be the good wife. She really, truly loved him.”

But Chris says, “I commend Oprah on being like, ‘This (abuse) is a problem’, but it was a slap in my face. I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could have been more helpful, like, ‘OK, I’m going to help both of these people out.’”

Oprah responded with the following statement:

“Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs.” Source

Soooooo he sang a tune or two for her little Africans and he thinks she doesn’t have the right to voice her opinion on him land basting his girlfriend, eh? Boo, doing something good DO NOT make it OK to do something bad, especially something THAT bad. Someone needs to teach him the meaning of the word ‘altruism.’

Oprah and Oz Headed to Court

oprah oz

Oprah and Dr. Oz are suing over 50 businesses alleging they used her to promote their products without her permission. They filed papers in New York to stop the “unauthorized and unlawful use” of their names, pictures, voices and trademarks which have “gravely injured” the duo’s reputations.
The small firms they’re suing allegedly used Oprah and Oz’s names and images to sell beauty products and dietary supplements

The papers state: “These defendants are willfully capitalizing on plaintiffs’ valuable reputation and intellectual property rights to lure consumers into ordering their infringing products on the false premise that they have been tested or recommended by Ms. Winfrey and/or Dr. Oz when they have not.”
Source

These people OBVIOUSLY don’t know who they’re messing with. First of all, Oprah’s got her flying monkeys on the prowl to check for this type of out of pocket behavior. Second of all, she’s shrewd and ruthless.  So when this is all said and done, she’ll own their drawers.
