Lindsay & Oprah

Oprah “Sorry” For Naming Switzerland In Racism Allegations

Oprah Winfrey apologized Monday for the media firestorm that resulted after she said she experienced racism first-hand while shopping in Switzerland.

“I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland,” Winfrey told the Associated Press. “I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don’t expect that you would be able to be there.” Read more at Celebuzz…

The Soapbox: Natural Hair, Like Recycling, Is Not A Lifestyle Choice For Everyone

For the last several years, natural hair “trends” have been on the rise for African-American and other women in the U.S. Just last week, Oprah graced the cover of O Magazine donning an enormous Afro, much bigger than the one she wore in the late ’70s when she first started on primetime. Oprah’s gesture pays tribute to the millions of women who have tossed relaxers and weaves to the side and embraced their own hair — their natural hair.

As I wrote last spring, women of African decent, and some others too, sometimes use a product called a perm to make their hair “more manageable.” These began as a trend in the 1920s so blacks (both men and women) could more readily assimilate into white culture and evade the detriments of racism. If you’ve ever read or watched The Autobiography of Malcolm X, you’ll remember the scene in which he dunked his head in a toilet bowl to find reprieve from the smoldering “conk” (what a perm used to be called) he was using to straighten his hair.

Oprah’s hair was a wig designed by lock guru Andre Walker but the idea of it still persists – Afros, and other natural hairstyles are here to stay … or are they? Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “The Butler” Premiere

Director Lee Daniels’ new film “The Butler” chronicles the history of the White House through the eyes of an African-American butler named Cecil Gaines, played by Forest Whitaker. A lot of hot dudes, including Liev Shrieber and James Marsden, play the presidents, and Alex Pettyfer, perhaps typecast, plays a terrible sadistic landowner.

I don’t know if this movie is good or bad, but I was basically bawling after watching the trailer, so yeah, it’s that kind of film. Plus! Oprah’s in it! Oprah.

On Monday night, the film premiered in New York, and here’s what everyone wore.

Watch A Preview Of Lindsay Lohan’s Oprah Interview

Lindsay Lohan has completed rehab and I couldn’t be happier that she is sober and doing well. Nevertheless, between “Chelsea Lately” and “Oprah’s Next Chapter” it all seems a bit fast. Shouldn’t she be taking a break from the spotlight to work on her sobriety? Isn’t it obvious at this point that fame is at least a part of her issues? Oprah asks her if she is an addict, which obviously she is and what it’s like to have her name, Lindsay Lohan, synonymous with “child star gone wrong.” Bummer. Read more at College Candy…

I don’t really watch OWN, Oprah’s network-facing grasp at world domination, so I really miss my daily 4 p.m. check in with OWins. It seems I’m not the only one, as the folks over at Beloved have fashioned a sweatshirt from Ms. Winfrey’s face. Writ large across the body of the sweatshirt, this garment says, “I have no problems wearing someone else’s face all over my body.” If my life had gone in a different direction, one in which novelty sweatshirts were my main source of amusement, I would buy up everything on this site.
