Is Oprah a Scientologist? Just Googling that question returns 127,000 results, so we know we’re not alone in asking.
On the heels of the announcement that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith would be guests on one of Oprah’s final shows, three things popped into my head: 1) random! 2) are they getting a reality series on OWN? and 3) man, she’s shared a lot of big, memorable moments with famous (alleged) Scientologists.
I mean, I’ve been convinced for months now that Oprah’s last show would be a tribute to her loyal viewers. (That’s thanks in large part to mainlining marathons of OWN’s ‘Oprah Behind the Scenes,’ on which Oprah is always saying it’s “for the fans.”) A walk down memory lane, a parting gift, in the spiritual sense, reminding them to pay it forward … not another chat with some fancy Hollywood A-listers!

You guys know I’m not overly effusive in my praise of much of anything. However, since “Twin Peaks” seems to be having a moment right now (thanks, probably, in part because of its easy access on Netflix Streaming Video), I’ve been reminded of probably the coolest crazy girl in the world: FREAKING AUDREY HORNE. How much do I love this crazy bitch and her retro-’50s hyper-sexual look? To quote Miss Rachel Zoe, it’s BANANAS. I DIE. Check out how to get Audrey’s timeless sexiness after the jump. Keep reading »
Earlier this week, Lady Gaga became editor-in-chief of London’s Metro newspaper for a day, because wearing jeweled nipple tassels is as essential to an editor’s job as being able to wield a red pen and fix a serial comma. Today, I hear that Nicki Minaj became principal for a day at Collins Academy High School in Chicago when the school won the Get MotivatED contest for attendance. Nicki got the honor of giving three students scholarship checks—very cool—but I’m not so sure how she handled any students who might have gotten sent to her office for bad behavior. Maybe rather than detention, she made them wear an extra heavy Marge Simpson wig? [USA Today]
Now, I get these “______ for a day” gigs. Keep reading »
It was a night of high profile falls for reality TV on Wednesday — when two reality stars took tumbles during their big moments.
First up: Haley Reinhart on “American Idol.”
Haley was so into her performance of Led Zeppelin’s “What Is & What Should Never Be” Tuesday night that she tripped on the stage right in front of the judging panel. The 20-year-old got right back up and finished strong. Watch it here. Keep reading »
I am obsessed with Guinness World Records. Someday, I aspire to set a record of my own. For those of you out there who are equally as compelled by them, I’d like to introduce you to a very important world record holder, Mr. Ashrita Furman. He holds the world record for … holding the most Guinness World Records. When his latest world record was documented last week—the record for the “most lemons caught blindfolded in one minute by a team of two”—it brought his record tally to an astonishing 121. But that’s nothing—in his 56 years, Ashrita has set 342 records, from doing the most jumping jacks in a row to juggling underwater while surrounded by sharks. And apparently this health food store manager in Queens has set records all over the world—on seven different continents to be exact. My. Hero. [Newser] Keep reading »
