Lady Gaga Invades “Oprah”

On Friday Lady Gaga appeared on “Oprah” for the first time, sitting down with the talk show queen to discuss her sudden success, as well as performing a few of her hit songs. She talked to Oprah about being inspired to write “Paparazzi” about Princess Diana, the origin of her name (the Queen song “Radio Gaga”), and what in the hell is going on with her outlandish costumes and everyday style. Check out part of the interview as well as her performance, after the jump. In the photo above, Oprah does her best Gaga impression. Not bad, but needs more blood. Keep reading »

Quit! All The Cool Kids Are Doing It

First, Oprah announced that she was retiring from daytime TV in 2011. A few weeks later, Lance Armstrong announced that he was hanging up the bike helmet in 2011. On Monday, Miley Cyrus and Disney announced that “Hannah Montana” would be dunzo in 2011. Meanwhile, Tyra Banks and Simon Cowell can’t wait a year—both have said that at the end of this season of “The Tyra Show” and “American Idol,” respectively, that they are gracefully bowing out. So here’s my question. What’s up with people announcing their retirement three months to a year in advance? Is it for easy publicity? Or to make sure that their final season is thoroughly infused with over-the-top nostalgia? Or is everyone just wanting to chillax for a while, since the world is going to end in 2012 anyway?

Sex Rehab Comes To Oprah


Today on “Oprah,” the talk show host continued on her sex kick, discussing sex addiction with Dr. Drew Pinsky. He brought along three of his patients from VH1′s “Sex Rehab,” including Jennie Ketcham, who, before being treated by Pinsky, was a porn star who went by the name Penny Flame. She told Oprah how she’s been doing since leaving rehab — she no longer works in porn and goes by her birth name now, penning a blog about her recovery called “Becoming Jennie.” Now that she’s in recovery, Ketcham tells Oprah she’s seeing less and less of the monster she thought she had inside.

WTF? Oprah Teams Up With The “Secretary” Screenwriter

Poor Oprah. Girlfriend is having a total midlife crisis! First she quits her cash cow of a TV show; now she’s hiring the screenwriter who wrote sadomasochism spectacular “Secretary” to work on a project together. Yep, you read that right: Oprah’s Harpo Films has teamed up with Erin Cressida Wilson — who wrote all those jerk-off-worthy spanking scenes in “Secretary,” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader — to pen an hour-long series pilot for HBO. According to Variety, the show will be about a woman who ditches her “seemingly perfect” husband and kids in Santa Monica for the “underbelly” of Los Angeles, where she fulfills her “secret fantasies and desires.” Frankly, the words “Oprah Winfrey” and “spanking” appearing in the same paragraph makes us want to ralph. But we must admit we are intrigued about what these two ladies will cook up. [Variety] Keep reading »

Quotable: Ellen DeGeneres’ Reaction To Oprah’s Announcement

By now you’ve probably heard the news that Oprah Winfrey, queen of daytime television, will be quitting her talk show after its 25th season on September 9, 2011. Friends and fans have started reacting to Oprah’s news, including fellow daytime talk show host and co-covergirl on this month’s O magazine, Ellen DeGeneres who had this to say to her studio audience yesterday:

“Hey listen, I’m going to tell you some news you’re going to hear as soon as you go out into the world, when you leave here. Right before I came out here, I got a call from Oprah and she told me that she is announcing that next year will be her last year. It will be her 25th year, and she feels like it’s time for her to stop. I don’t think I could be here without her. I think she has blazed a trail … She is an amazing woman. She will always be the Queen of Daytime Television, and she also said she is leaving me all of her money. I was like, thanks Oprah, thank you.”

Don’t worry, Ellen — you may not be getting all of Oprah’s money, but the departure of your biggest competitor sure can’t hurt your pocketbook. [via People.com] Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Oprah And MObama Feuding? Katie Holmes’ $15 Million Tell-All Book?

It’s Wednesday, and is it just me, or has work been especially hard as we head towards the calorific holiday season? Just be glad that you won’t be critiqued by millions on your pecan pie-induced weight gain, and when you get too drunk at the office party, you won’t have to read about it on the cover of a magazine the next day. Celebrities aren’t so lucky. But their pain is our gain because their (possibly fictional) dramas are usually more interesting than anything we could make up on our own. And because we love you so much, we’ve read every tabloid that came out today and hand-picked the juiciest stories. Enjoy! Keep reading »

Jenna Jameson Made It Possible For Female Porn Performers To Say “I’m Not Gonna Do It In The Back”

Today’s “Oprah” focused on the porn industry and how more women are watching adult films these days. While the show’s highlight, for me, was seeing journalist Lisa Ling’s reaction as she watched a sex scene being filmed, Oprah’s interview with former porn star Jenna Jameson, who is now retired from the industry, was fascinating, as well. Check out the clip above, where she talks about how many sex partners she’s had and what job she wanted when she was a little girl. Keep reading »

Robin Givens Gets In The Ring With Oprah Over Mike Tyson Interview

Robin Givens really wanted to “sock” Oprah Winfrey after her recent interview with Mike Tyson. Why? When discussing the couple’s 1988 interview with Barbara Walters, Tyson told the Big O that Robin was telling lies about claims of domestic violence. Tyson said, “At that particular moment, I truly wanted to sock her, but I just didn’t do it. I have socked her before, and she socked me before, as well. It was just that kind of relationship.” Sure sounds like domestic violence to me. I wonder what it was that Givens was lying about? And oddly, the audience laughed at this comment and an out-of-character Oprah was silent. Well, Givens was not silent about her feelings about it. She was “really, really hurt” by the laughter and Oprah’s silence. Keep reading »
