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.

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…

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,…

Take A Tour Of Gloria Steinem’s Fabulous NYC Apartment

As Gloria Steinem walks Oprah through the beautiful and elaborately decorated NYC apartment she’s lived in since 1966, it’s hard to imagine that until recently, she treated it as a temporary home. “For years and years and years I lived out of cardboard boxes,” says Steinem. “I was brought up to think you didn’t make…

Gabby Douglas Was “Isolated” At Gym, Called A “Slave”

In her upcoming interview with Oprah, Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas says she was “bullied” and “isolated” at her Virginia Beach gym for being black and was even called a “slave.” But her gym, Excalibur Gymnastics, denied the claims and called Gabby’s comments “hurtful” and “without merit.” Err, I think she would know what…

Paris Jackson: Masks Were So We Could Be Normal

Paris Jackson was “confused” about why she had to wear a mask in public when she was younger, she tells Oprah on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” via the BBC. “I understand it now, why my dad would want our face to be covered,” she said. “Like when we went out without him, we wouldn’t be recognized, so…

Dear O Magazine: $500 Shoes Are Not A “Deal”

I was flipping through O Magazine last night (gotta learn how to live my best life, you know?) and came across a sidebar article about a new line of affordable shoes. Here’s what it said:

Could Bethenny Frankel Be The New Oprah?

Oprah has been gone for three weeks now, and there is a serious void in the daytime television universe. Who will step forward to give us life advice and book recommendations, and just generally take on the mission of keeping us sane? Perhaps … Bethenny Frankel?

Oprah Is Pretty In Pink For Her Finale Episode

It’s hard to believe that, just a few minutes ago, Oprah concluded her final “Oprah Winfrey Show” after 25 years. The episode was quiet and thoughtful, as Oprah said in the first moments of it, “This last hour is my love letter to you. I want to leave you with lessons from my life.” And…

Oprah’s Scientology Ties: Big Show Moments With The Church’s Hollywood Elite

Is Oprah a Scientologist? Just Googling that question returns 127,000 results, so we know we’re not alone in asking.

10 Things We Hope Will Happen On The Final Episodes Of “Oprah”

I cannot believe that “The Oprah Show” is coming to an end next week. Seriously, I’ve been watching since I was, like, eight and I always thought I’d make it onto her couch. I guess it’s time to let that dream go. Sigh. After 25 seasons, the Big O is filming her final three episodes.
