On The Abuse And Sexual Assault Allegations Against Oprah’s Book Club Author Gregory Sherl

This month, author Gregory Sherl’s debut novel, The Future For Curious People is being featured as an editor’s pick on Oprah.com’s book club list, a potentially career-making achievement for such a young writer (Sherl is only 29).

Justin Timberlake Will Open “Oprah’s Master Class” (Awkwardly)

Oprah, Goddess Of Everything, is bringing back her “Master Class” series for another season of navel-gazing with the brightest and best of the entertainment biz.

Oprah’s Tired Of Lindsay Lohan’s Bullshit, And Is The Only Person Not Afraid To Tell Her

Lasting Celebrity Romances Do Exist: Here, Oprah Proves It

When Amy Poehler and Will Arnett called it quits, I was totally bummed. When Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel were dunzo, I despaired.

Oprah Is Chillaxing Hard Now That She’s 60 (Well, As Much As Oprah Can Chillax)

Oprah, the great television goddess and overall beacon of awesomeness, turned 60 on Wednesday. She’s still as fierce as ever, and I’m more than a little obsessed with her.
