Oprah Cries When Asked By Barbara Walters About Lesbian Rumors

“TISSUE PLEASE!” That’s Oprah — a rare one to raise her voice — at some lackey off-camera when she starts to cry during an interview with Barbara Walters. Babs had just asked Oprah about her super-duper-close friendship with Gayle King, which sent the tears a-flowin’. Said the big O:

“She’s the mother I never had. She is the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don’t know a better person.”

Then klassy Barbara asks about the “dumb rumors” — [stage whisper] you know, the lesbian ones! Keep reading »

Sally Jessy Raphael’s Signature Red Glasses Came With Her Pap Smear

“I couldn’t see the teleprompter. So I saw an ad that said, ‘We do a Pap smear and give you red glasses.’ They said were going to trade me up [for a more expensive pair]. I said: ‘You’re not going to trade me up. I don’t have that kind of money.’ It’s all they had for $19.95.”

—Former talk show host Sally Jessy Raphael explains where she got her signature, over-sized, red glasses on “Oprah.” I’m sorry. Come again? A medical office that sells glasses and gives pap smears? Did that kind of place exist in the ’80s? If so, how come Sally didn’t cover that as a topic on her show? [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Last week, Oprah paid a virtual visit to Jon Stewart‘s “Daily Show” to throw her support behind the “Rally to Restore Sanity.” But seeing as she’s Oprah, and no mere mortal, she didn’t just verbally announce her endorsement. Instead, she pulled an epic Oprah move and surprised the entire “Daily Show” audience with a free trip down to D.C. for the big event. Oprah’s appearance starts around the six-minute mark.

Jon Stewart Reveals His Inner Jew Fro

Real talk: No one can go on “Oprah” without getting at least a little sensitive and introspective — even “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, who spent a hilarious hour with the talk-show queen earlier this week. Stewart was there shilling his new book, Earth, when Oprah whipped out a college-age photo of a nerdrific Stewart, sporting a Jew fro. Stewart said, “That’s what I still feel. I don’t think of myself as a happening dude. I think of myself as ‘nice jew fro.’” The sensitive stuff starts around the 9-minute mark. [YouTube] Keep reading »

What’s The Wildest Dream You’d Want Oprah To Fulfill?

In her last season, she’s really taking it to the next level, huh?

So we want to know: What would you want if Oprah were granting you your ultimate wildest dream? Keep reading »

Oprah Bringing Her Entire Studio Audience To Australia


Yesterday, Oprah kicked off her 25th season. The guests for the show were a total snoozefest—Don Johnson, Paul Simon, and John Travolta, of whom the Big O said, “Twenty-five years later, you still make my heart go pitter-patter.” But things got much more interesting later in the show when John was pulled onstage in a fake airplane.

Vanity Fair’s 2010 “New Establishment” Is A List Of (Mostly) Rich White Guys

I don’t know how much stock I take in Vanity Fair‘s lists of the most powerful and influential people. There’s no denying someone like Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg, or Rupert Murdoch has an enormous ability to influence people. But there’s always people in lists like that who I sense are just getting a blow job from the magazine. Besides, who each of us is influenced by is such a personal thing! I personally find Tina Fey and Ani DiFranco enormously “influential,” but they are never listed on anything. Alas, Vanity Fair‘s 2010 list of the 100 people in “New Establishment” has another reason for you to scoff at its credibility: If my counting skills are to be trusted, of the 114 people on the list, there are only 13 women. That’s nine percent. Nine! Keep reading »

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Stars Of OWN Network

Mark your calendars! Less than six months until we can gorge on all Oprah programming all the time. With OWN’s launch date set for January 2011, the lineup is starting to come together. This week, it was confirmed that Rosie O’Donnell will be joining Shania Twain and Sarah Ferguson on the OWN team. All we know so far is that Rosie’s as yet unnamed daytime talk show will be based in New York and “fans can anticipate a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O’Donnell’s playful and energetic style.” Let’s hope it goes better than her stint on “The View.” Very important question: who from the lineup do we want to shun, shag, or marry? Find out after the jump. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
