Chris Brown Thinks Oprah Was Harsh On Him

Boo hoo. Chris Brown is upset that, soon after the night when he pummeled Rihanna, Oprah did an episode of her show on domestic violence and dedicated it “to all the Rihannas of the world.” During the episode, Oprah said, “I’ve said before love doesn’t hurt, and if a man hits you once, he will hit you again.”

Chris thinks this was harsh. “I commend Oprah on being like, ‘This is a problem,’ but it was a slap in my face,” he told People. “I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could’ve been more helpful, like, ‘OK, I’m going to help both of these people out.’” Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Oprah Winfrey And Stedman Graham Might Be Dunzo!

  • The National Enquirer is reporting that Stedman Graham, Oprah Winfrey‘s long-time beau, has left the Queen of All Media because he’s tired of being disrespected by the O. [Inquisitr] — I’ve never liked Stedman for Oprah, but I don’t think there’s a man on this planet who could be her equal.
  • Derek Jeter and A-Rod aren’t the best of friends, they’re only teammates, but the negative vibes have trickled down to their girlfriends. Kate Hudson and Minka Kelly, Jeter’s girlfriend, have been noticeably cold to each other. [Dlisted] — Funny, I thought Kate was all about peace and love.
  • Alyson Hannigan says having baby girl Satyana was “the best thing that’s ever happened to me! I’m so in love.” [People] — Aww, how sweet!

Will And Jada Fire The Headmaster Of Their School Over Scientology Curriculum

Will Smith and his TMI-spewing wife recently fired the headmaster of their private school. Allegedly, the educational feud with Jacqueline Olivier was over the curriculum for a “Study Technology” class at the New Village Leadership Academy. Will and Jada have denied that the school is all about Scientology, but the word is that Olivier wanted to do some tinkering with the course, even though it was designed by L. Ron Hubbard, which wasn’t cool with Will and Jada. Guess they’ll have to find a new headmaster to teach their kids science fiction?

But wait a second. Let’s back up. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have a school? And they aren’t the only ones. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Oprah Gets Sued For One Trillion Dollars

Oprah Winfrey and her production company, Harpo Inc., is being sued for $1 trillion for allegedly plagiarizing part of author Damon Lloyd Goffe’s book, A Tome of Poetry, in her internet-published book Pieces of my Soul. The copyright infringement suit was filed on July 31, and Goffe says that Winfrey even admitted to using his book a year ago. “In April 2008, Oprah confessed to seizing original works of authorship.” And since Winfrey allegedly sold 650 million copies of her book online for $20 each, Goffe thinks he deserves $1.2 trillion in damages.

Is Chris Brown Ready For Oprah?

With Chris Brown finally offering a public apology for letting his temper get the best of him and striking ex-girlfriend Rihanna, what’s the next stop on his “I’m Sorry” tour? Could it be a seat on Oprah Winfrey’s couch? That’s the word. It’s rumored that Chris Brown’s camp is in negotiations with The Oprah Winfrey Show about making an appearance on the Goddess of the Universe’s talk show. Only there’s one catch: Breezy doesn’t want to talk about the specifics of what happened between he and Rihanna the night he reportedly beat her. However, it seems Oprah’s people have popped back and made it clear that they don’t want anything on the table. With respect to all of you teeny boppers who throw your training bras at Chris in concert, it doesn’t compare to the power of Oprah’s legion of fans. If Chris wants to go back to pop locking for Doublemint gum, I’d sit on the couch, cry and let Oprah verbally spank me. Continue reading Keep reading »

All Aboard Oprah’s “Love Boat!”

If you are as big of an Oprah fan as I am — (I have been watching since I was 8, have written multiple letters trying to get on the show, and own the exhaustive Oprah Anniversary DVD collection. Moral of story, I heart Oprah.) — then you are also feeling bitter that you weren’t able to force yourself aboard Oprah’s debaucherous 10-day cruise with her 2,000 most valued employees and, err…gal pal…Gayle. Steadman couldn’t make it, AGAIN. No comment. While I was at home sweating in my humid apartment and taking cold showers while imagining that I was in a swimming pool, Oprah’s crew was tearing it up on the open seas. After the jump, the top 5 reasons I really missed out. Keep reading »

Oprah Gets A Comic Book

When I heard about an Oprah comic book, I snickered. Not the classiest reaction ever, but I thought it was kinda funny that Oprah had sort of already conquered the world, but now was going to be illustrated doing so in a cape. While I still think a caped crusader-style Oprah would be nifty, it turns out I got my original facts wrong. Oprah does not, in fact, star in her own comic book series, but is the cover girl of the comic book series “Female Force” September issue. Keep reading »

Best Bosses In Hollywood

Add another tick to the list of why Oprah is the best human ever. The media giant is taking all 100 employees from her TV production company, Harpo, plus their families, on a 10-day cruise around the Mediterranean. Four years ago, she brought all of her staff to Hawaii and this year they’re headed to Italy, Turkey, Greece, and Malta. Lucky! As if working for Oprah wasn’t already cool enough, the free trips are definitely the cherry on top. [Daily Mail]

After the jump, three more celebrities who give their staff jealousy-inducing perks: Keep reading »

The Many Feuds Of David Letterman

As you know, David Letterman’s been getting a lot of flack for opening up his trap about Sarah Palin and her family. He won’t shut up about it. She won’t shut up about it. And obviously we can’t shut up about it. So after the jump, I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane to reminisce about some older Letterman feuds that people also couldn’t shut up about.

Women (Especially Angelina) Top Forbes List Of Most Powerful Celebrities

Women are on top of the world—the celeb world that is. Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Madonna and Beyonce Knowles claimed the top four spots on Forbes’ just-released 2009 Celebrity 100 List. Actually, a quarter of the list is female including some of our favorites: Twilight author, Stephenie Meyer (#26), Ellen DeGeneres (#40), Meryl Streep (#64), Serena Williams (#67), Taylor Swift (#69), Gisele Bundchen (#72) and race car driver Danica Patrick (#100). [Forbes.com]

The real shocker is, of course, that Angelina snagged the top spot from Oprah, who’s been number one for the last two years running. Although Oprah earned 10 times more than Angie last year, she apparently didn’t get as much star-studded coverage in mags and newspapers and on TV. What’s especially strange is that Forbes cites Jolie’s blockbuster “Wanted” as a major reason she reached this pinnacle. Yeah, it made $340 million, but it’s still got nothing on an Oprah’s Favorite Things episode. Keep reading »
