The Kardashian Klan really leaves no personal stone unturned — we know virtually everything about them. The latest? Kim Kardashian divulged to Oprah during an interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that she asked her momager Kris to put her on birth control when she was just 14. It seems Kim had had a boyfriend for a couple years at that point and told her mom, “I think I’m ready” to have sex. So, rather than do what most moms would — freak out, ground her for life, put locks on her bedroom door, etc. — Kris took her to get birth control. (My roommate just exclaimed, “so that’s where she got her ass.”) Onnnnnnnn the one hand, it’s nice that she and Kris had the kind of relationship where they could openly talk about sex and dating with one another. But then again, girl was 14. That seems a little bit young to be so permissive about sex.
Personally, my mother and I never really talked about that stuff — which is probably also not the norm. But what about you? Did you ask your mother (or father) to go on birth control? At what age? [Oprah] Keep reading »
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 we could have a normal childhood.” Read more…
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:
“If you adore–but can’t afford–Brian Atwood’s luxe shoes, check out his new “B” line: same sensuous look, much lower price. Still a splurge, but for true fans, it’s a deal.”
That all sounded very nice, but then I looked at the price: $500. Wait, what?

If what I am about to tell you is actually true, I have far higher hopes for the Oprah Winfrey Network than I did 10 minutes ago. According to the National Enquirer, the amazing Neil Patrick Harris and the Big O are discussing him getting his own talk show on the network. “After their initial conversation, Oprah was intrigued enough to set up two follow-up brainstorming meetings on Skype with Neil,” an insider squealed. “Oprah is mentoring Neil while also trying to bolster her own brand.”
Let me count the ways that I LOVE this idea. Keep reading »
“I now have the time to be committed to the nurturing of this network. The vacation I thought I was going to have is kind of over, at least for the time being. I have committed everything I have to this cable venture. I wouldn’t bet against me … I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me and I am going to make that happen, people. I don’t just want the interview. I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson.”
—Oprah tells The Hollywood Reporter that she is now 100% in over at OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. Her biggest dream for the station? Getting OJ Simpson, who is currently in prison for kidnapping and robbery, to tell the truth about what happened to Nicole Brown Simpson. If anyone can make it happen, it’s the Big O.
