Chimp Attack Victim Shows Her Face On “Oprah”

In February, 56-year-old Charla Nash was severely mauled by a 200-pound chimpanzee. Today, she appears on “Oprah” to talk for the first time about the ordeal that left her tragically disfigured. The chimp, Travis, was highly domesticated; he had appeared on TV commercials, enjoyed a diet of lobster, steak, and ice cream, and brushed his teeth with a Water Pik. But for unknown reasons, he suddenly viciously attacked Nash, a friend of his owner. After the incident, Travis was shot dead, but Nash lost her eyes, nose, lips, and hands. Although she remains in the hospital, she talked about her life after the attack. “I don’t ask a whole lot about my injuries. I know that I have my forehead,” she tells Oprah on today’s show. A clip is here, but it’s very graphic. You’ve been warned. [Oprah] Keep reading »

Ellen DeGeneres And Portia de Rossi Open Up On “Oprah”


On yesterday’s episode, Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, talked with Oprah about their careers, living life with compassion, and being the most high-profile lesbian couple in the world. Both Ellen and Portia discuss getting over the anxiety of publicly coming out as a lesbian, which Portia finally faced when she decided to date Ellen. “I faced every one of my fears to do it.” Portia says, “She did this for me, because I felt this overwhelming connection with her and I didn’t want to miss out. The love overcame the fear for me.” Clip above. Keep reading »

These 5 Women Were Given HIV By The Same Man


Today’s episode of “Oprah” was both upsetting and inspiring. The five women in the clip above all contracted HIV from the same man — their boyfriend, Philippe Padieu, who was secretly wooing (and sleeping with) all of them (and then some!) at the same time. He knew he had HIV, yet didn’t tell any of them. Little did he know what they would do when they found out. The women banded together to warn others being seduced by Padieu’s charms and then went to the police. He was eventually sentenced to 45 years in prison. Kick. Ass. [Oprah] Keep reading »

A Flight Attendant Takes On Oprah Winfrey In Court

Here’s a doozy of a celebrity lawsuit for you. Corrine Gehrls was a flight attendant on Oprah’s private jet, until she was fired in June. Apparently, a second flight attendant and Oprah’s goddaughter told the Big O that Corrine had sex with pilot Terry Pansing during a flight, and Oprah was not amused. Now, Gehrls is suing for $75,000, saying that the accusations are totally false and that she’s been defamed. The crux of her case are polygraph tests from both her and this pilot saying that they never bumped pelvises on duty. Oprah has a grand tradition of beating every lawsuit that comes her way—lord knows she can afford the lawyer bills—so do you think Gehrls has a chance on this? [Reuters] Keep reading »

Has Oprah Lost Her Swagger?

As a longtime worshiper at the temple of O, I have recently been questioning Oprah’s street cred. Is the talk show queen really slipping in popularity, as her seven-point Nielsen rating drop suggested? As soon as her 23rd season (yes, believe it) began, I got my answer … hell no! Fresh off tell-all interviews with Erin Andrews, and THE Whitney Houston, Oprah is back with a bang this season, proving that she is still the high priestess of hip. What’s in store for the eager viewers of America like me? Keep reading »

Whitney Houston Tells All (Seriously, All) To Oprah


Oprah knows how to start a season right. Her interview with Whitney Houston yesterday (the second part airs today!) was even better than the season premiere in 2004 when every audience member left with a new car. Rather than interview Whitney in front of an audience, Oprah sat down to chat with her in an empty auditorium, which was a little awkward, but once Whitney started talking, you didn’t notice anymore. “[Bobby] was my drug,” she said. “I didn’t do anything without him. I wasn’t getting high by myself. It was me and him together, and we were partners, and that’s what my high was—him.”

In addition to describing their drug of choice, she also revealed what we all suspected—that there was physical abuse in the relationship. “He slapped me once, but he got hit on the head three times by me,” she said. Her daughter walked in the room just in time to see Bobby on the floor bleeding. And in the clip above, Whitney talked about her mother coming to her house with the police to force her into rehab. “She said, ‘I’m not losing you to the world. I’m not losing you to Satan. I want my daughter back.’ She said, ‘If you move, Bobby, they’re gonna take you down.’ ” Keep reading »

Erin Andrews Tells Oprah About Her Peeping Tom Nightmare


When ESPN reporter Erin Andrews learned in July some perverted peeping Tom had videotaped her naked through a peephole in her hotel room, she did what any of us would do: she called her parents screaming. Andrews told Oprah Winfrey about her ordeal on this afternoon’s show:
“Having to call my parents and they—they thought I was physically injured how bad I was screaming…I kept screaming [to my father], ‘I’m done. My career is over. I’m done. Get it off. Get it off the Internet. Get it off.’”
