Michelle Obama Is The Fourth Black Woman To Grace Vogue’s Cover

It’s official: Michelle Obama is a Vogue cover girl. The March 2009 issue, which will hit newsstands next week, features the first lady on its cover wearing a Jason Wu dress (the same designer who created her inauguration night gown). Inside the magazine, Obama is pictured at the Hay-Adams hotel in Washington, D.C., wearing a Narciso Rodriguez dress and a J.Crew ensemble. While a number of first ladies have been featured in the so-called fashion Bible, starting with Lou Hoover in 1929, Hillary Clinton is the only other one to make the cover, in 1998. But perhaps what’s more exciting than Obama being the second first lady to be on the cover of Vogue is that she is the fourth black woman to be featured on the cover in the magazine’s history.

    Oprah Helps Kate Winslet Celebrate Her Golden Globes

    Oprah loves Kate Winslet as much as we (and Leo DiCaprio) do! On yesterday’s episode, O interviewed the winner of two Golden Globes and expressed her, uh, appreciation for the star’s own orbs. Clip above! And transcript below:

    “I love the fact that you have real breasts, ’cause in all the breast scenes, your breasts do what real breasts do…There’s that wonderful thing, you know, if you are a woman, you’re lying on your back, your breasts they go to–they part–but if you look at a woman with not real breasts, their breasts are sticking straight up. That’s how you know. God bless your real breasts!”

    Oprah’s Sex Diagram

    As you know, Oprah has been enlightening the masses about how to live their best life. This past week, she covered relationships, intimacy, and sex, with Friday being saved for sex. Dr. Laura Berman was on the show yesterday helping couples get over their intimacy issues, and she had one couple do an exercise where they numbered parts of the body in the order they wanted their partner to pay attention to each part during foreplay. The partner filled out another form saying what order he paid attention to her body parts. Then, they compared to figure out what areas they should be spending more time on, and which they were wasting their time on. Man, these people were clueless about what one another wanted. The sexless human drawing is kind of creepy, but wouldn’t it be useful if you kept your chart on hand so you could hand it over and say, “Here, this is what you need to do to turn me on” to whomever you were hooking up with?

    Publication Of Holocaust Memoir, Loved By Oprah, Canceled

    Berkley Books, an imprint of large book publisher, Penguin, has canceled the publication of the Oprah-endorsed Holocaust memoir, “Angel at the Fence,” after allegations of its validity were made by Jewish groups, family, and friends. “Angel at the Fence” was supposed to come out in February, and told the love story of Herman and Rosa Rosenblat — in the memoir, Mr. Rosenblat claimed that his life was saved when young Rosa (then Roma Radzicky, also a prisoner at the concentration camp) threw him apples over a fence to prevent him from starving. Rosenblat said they found each other years later, set up on a blind date. “I wanted to bring happiness to people,” Rosenblat said in a statement issued Saturday through his agent, Andrea Hurst. “I brought hope to a lot of people. My motivation was to make good in this world.”

    Though there is no doubt Rosenblat was a Holocaust concentration camp survivor, serious doubts exist that he could have met his wife in the ways he describes in the book. Thus, Jewish groups and scholars worry that such inaccuracies would only encourage Holocaust deniers. Keep reading »

    Is Oprah’s Weight Struggle The Secret To Her Success?

    In case you live in a cave and have somehow avoided seeing images of Oprah recently, she’s put on some weight in the last couple of years: 40 pounds to be exact. In the January issue of O Magazine, out on newsstands today, Oprah opens up about her continued weight struggle in what’s become her signature way: like she’s confessing her sins — or at least her deepest vulnerabilities — to her closest confidante. “I’m embarrassed,” she writes. “I can’t believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I’m still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, `How did I let this happen again?”‘
