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).

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 »

Hear us out. We can see your fingers poised over the “comment” button already! Allow us to make a case for the argument that maybe it wasn’t such a thing for Anna Wintour to suggest Oprah lose weight before she ended up on the cover of Vogue: Keep reading »

M.I.A. Wants Oprah’s Help Stopping War In Sri Lanka

M.I.A. knows how to make some noise. At Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People party, the singer sauntered up to Oprah and asked her to help galang-a-lang-a-lang the government sanctioned bombings of civilians in her motherland, Sri Lanka. [Radar] — Oprah, help a woman out! Keep reading »

Elizabeth Edwards Talks About John’s Affair On “Oprah”

Oprah’s interview with Elizabeth Edwards has aired, and Elizabeth came across as poised and loving, especially considering all she has dealt with and is still going through. On the show, Elizabeth told Oprah she found out about John’s affair a few days after he announced his intent to run for the presidency. When he first told her, he said it had happened once. Then, a year and a half later, he told her the rest of the story. The two are still working to redevelop their trust.

Among the other topics Elizabeth and Oprah discussed were her fight against cancer, how women need to respect other, and how John and she are working on their marriage. When Oprah asked whether she’s still in love with John, Elizabeth said, “… I wouldn’t be here if I weren’t in love with him.” After the jump, another clip from the show. Keep reading »

Oprah Takes Jenny McCarthy Under Her Harpo Wing

Funny lady Jenny McCarthy has inked a multi-year, multi-platform deal with Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions. The projects include a syndicated talk show and a blog on Oprah.com, which Jenny launched last Friday, discussing PMS and sugar. Rachael Ray and Dr. Phil became household names after making frequent appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and signing deals with Harpo, so the chances of Jenny becoming another Oprah protege-turned-TV mogul are high. She’s discussed her struggles with her son’s autism and published several books, including Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism and Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds. Jenny, a former Playboy model who hosted MTV’s “Singled Out” in the ’90s, seems like an unlikely choice for Oprah. Would you watch a talk show hosted by Jenny McCarthy?

Kirstie Alley Is A Hot Mess On Oprah

Kirstie Alley was a hot mess on Oprah yesterday, dishing about her “humiliating” weight gain after she appeared on the show in 2006 in a bikini. She told Oprah that her weight started ballooning after she moved her gym equipment into her garage and turned the empty space into a dining room. Hmm … Maybe not the smartest move, Kirstie. When asked how she felt after seeing Valerie Bertinelli, Kirstie’s replacement as a Jenny Craig celebrity spokesperson, in a bikini on the cover of People a few weeks ago, Kirstie responded that she was inspired to lose weight and beat her. Oprah reminded her that being in shape isn’t a competition, and Kirstie replied: “That’s what people say when they’re gaining weight.” She also told Oprah that she has created her own weight loss program and has lost 20 pounds in the last five weeks. Opes was understandably skeptical and said, “Twenty pounds in five weeks? How did you do that?” To which Kirstie replied with a smirk, “I’ll tell you later.” Oprah, I’m sure, can’t wait to hear all about it. When Kirstie announced that she plans to be in ripped shape by November, just six months from now, Oprah looked her up and down and said she couldn’t let her make an announcement like that on national TV. “OK, fine,” Kirstie replied, “February, then.” (And, of course, you can follow her success on Twitter). So, there you have it, folks. Expect a major weight loss to coincide with the launch of Kirstie’s new magical program sometime early next year. Yo-yo dieting: it’s not a PR move, it’s a lifestyle.

Chris Brown To Apologize For Assualt On “Oprah”?

Supposedly, Rihanna can’t decide whether to take Chris Brown back after he allegedly beat the crap out of her in February, so she has reportedly demanded he publicly apologize to her on “Oprah.” Rihanna has been talking to Oprah Winfrey on a regular basis since the media mogul cautioned the singer against reconciling with Chris. But a public apology really won’t help Rihanna make up her mind because either she believes he’s remorseful or not. This just sounds like a bad idea for all three parties involved. Keep reading »

Oprah Has Big Love For Big Hair

This weekend, I posted a how to on my hairdo, the pompadour. But even after seven years of stylin’, I ain’t got nothin’ on these FLDS polygamists. Heck, Peggy Bundy would kill for their kind of poof! Sigh, especially after watching three seasons of Nicki pomp up the volume on “Big Love”, I want the big hair hotness too! And so does Oprah. When the voice of the people went to interview them, O asked the question we all had on our mind: what’s up with the updo?! The girls were sweet enough to let us steal share their secrets of the tease in this informative video — funny, it’s strikingly similar to my method…
