"He was the love of my life."

I care. It actually matters that he finds peace.” She also said that they are not back together but “we’ve built a trust again. We love each other and we probably always will.” RiRi also opened up about how after he brutally assaulted her in 2009, she was most concerned that “he needs help.” [Hollywood Life]

MORNING QUICKIES
"Who's going to help him?"
  • In an interview airing this Sunday on OWN, Rihanna opens up to Oprah about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown’s assault on her in 2009 and how difficult it was for her to process. “I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched in a night and I couldn’t control that,” Rihanna says in the preview above. She continues that one of the hardest things about the aftermath of the assault and their breakup was watching Brown get demonized in the media. “I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help,” she says. “Who’s going to help him? Nobody is going to say ‘He needs help.’ Everybody is going to say ‘He’s a monster’ without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.” [TMZ] Keep reading »

Homewrecker Kim
Amber Rose called Kim Kardashian a homewrecker in an interview. Read More »

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: 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 we could have a normal childhood.” Read more…

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:

“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?

Neil Patrick Harris To Get A Show On The Oprah Winfrey Network?

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 »

Oprah’s Dream: Getting OJ Simpson’s Confession

“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.

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? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bethenny is filming a talk show pilot as we speak. And she’s working on it with heavy hitters—Telepictures, the company behind “The Tyra Banks Show” and “Ellen.” Ms. DeGeneres herself even has a hand in creating the series.

So, could Bethenny be the next Oprah? Keep reading »

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 lessons she gave, along with some fun nuggets of personal history. Like that she started the show at age 30—hey, it’s never to late to start an empire—and that she hasn’t missed a day in her quarter century on the air. She even showed a picture of herself on her first day, wearing a Cruella de Vil-esque fur coat.

But you probably want the lessons, no? After the jump, some of my favorite quotes from the episode. Keep reading »
