Women In Denial: Oprah Sits Down With Denise Richards & Mrs. Ted Haggard


Yesterday’s episode of “Oprah” could have been subtitled “Women In Denial.” The talk show queen first sat down with Denise Richards, who spilled, oh, half the beans about her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen. Sheen was arrested on Christmas for allegedly assaulting his current wife, Brooke Mueller. Richards said Sheen called her from jail so he could wish their two kids Merry Christmas (Aww! Not.), but claims she didn’t inquire as to why he was in the pokey. Maybe because she could easily guess? Richards accused Sheen of being abusive during their very bitter divorce battle and even claimed she feared for her life. Richards told Oprah that Sheen was verbally abusive but that he never hit her, though she does admit he had pushed her — which qualifies as physical abuse in my book. While Richards was revealing more details than we’d known previously about their relationship, she still seemed weirdly … defensive of him, despite acknowledging that he has an obvious and reoccurring problem, one that he has continually denied inflicting upon her or Mueller. Even Richards’ father, who was in the audience, seemed frustrated that his daughter continues to “go back” to Sheen. Check out a clip of the interview above. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Invades “Oprah”

On Friday Lady Gaga appeared on “Oprah” for the first time, sitting down with the talk show queen to discuss her sudden success, as well as performing a few of her hit songs. She talked to Oprah about being inspired to write “Paparazzi” about Princess Diana, the origin of her name (the Queen song “Radio Gaga”), and what in the hell is going on with her outlandish costumes and everyday style. Check out part of the interview as well as her performance, after the jump. In the photo above, Oprah does her best Gaga impression. Not bad, but needs more blood. Keep reading »

Quit! All The Cool Kids Are Doing It

First, Oprah announced that she was retiring from daytime TV in 2011. A few weeks later, Lance Armstrong announced that he was hanging up the bike helmet in 2011. On Monday, Miley Cyrus and Disney announced that “Hannah Montana” would be dunzo in 2011. Meanwhile, Tyra Banks and Simon Cowell can’t wait a year—both have said that at the end of this season of “The Tyra Show” and “American Idol,” respectively, that they are gracefully bowing out. So here’s my question. What’s up with people announcing their retirement three months to a year in advance? Is it for easy publicity? Or to make sure that their final season is thoroughly infused with over-the-top nostalgia? Or is everyone just wanting to chillax for a while, since the world is going to end in 2012 anyway?

Sex Rehab Comes To Oprah


Today on “Oprah,” the talk show host continued on her sex kick, discussing sex addiction with Dr. Drew Pinsky. He brought along three of his patients from VH1′s “Sex Rehab,” including Jennie Ketcham, who, before being treated by Pinsky, was a porn star who went by the name Penny Flame. She told Oprah how she’s been doing since leaving rehab — she no longer works in porn and goes by her birth name now, penning a blog about her recovery called “Becoming Jennie.” Now that she’s in recovery, Ketcham tells Oprah she’s seeing less and less of the monster she thought she had inside. Clip above. Keep reading »

WTF? Oprah Teams Up With The “Secretary” Screenwriter

Poor Oprah. Girlfriend is having a total midlife crisis! First she quits her cash cow of a TV show; now she’s hiring the screenwriter who wrote sadomasochism spectacular “Secretary” to work on a project together. Yep, you read that right: Oprah’s Harpo Films has teamed up with Erin Cressida Wilson — who wrote all those jerk-off-worthy spanking scenes in “Secretary,” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader — to pen an hour-long series pilot for HBO. According to Variety, the show will be about a woman who ditches her “seemingly perfect” husband and kids in Santa Monica for the “underbelly” of Los Angeles, where she fulfills her “secret fantasies and desires.” Frankly, the words “Oprah Winfrey” and “spanking” appearing in the same paragraph makes us want to ralph. But we must admit we are intrigued about what these two ladies will cook up. [Variety] Keep reading »
