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.

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

So, on yesterday’s episode of “Oprah,” the talk show queen spent the hour fulfilling people’s wildest dreams. This included providing a roomful of 50 brides with free wedding gowns and luxury honeymoons. She also not only paid off a single mom’s $78,000 debt but also gave her an entire year off. In her last season,…

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 i…

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 jo…

Fergie Admits She’s A Drunk, Broke, Hot Mess On “Oprah”

No, not that Fergie—I’m talking about the the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson. Yesterday, she sat down on the Big O’s couch to talk about her recent scandal. You know, the one where she tried to sell access to her ex, Prince Andrew, to an undercover reporter (posing as a business man) for big…

When Lewis Carroll penned the line, “The time has come the walrus said,” I am sure he was referring to the “Twilight” episode of “Oprah.” Right? Well, the special has been plugged for a while and got its biggest push this week when rumors erupted that Kristen Stewart was having Robert Pattinson’s baby. I think…

Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson’s Baby: An OK Magazine Rendering

Okay, OK Magazine. We get that you want to milk this story that Robert Pattinson said he and Kristen Stewart are having a baby, even though it was incredibly obvious that he was kidding when he divulged this to Oprah. But if you were going to do a sketch of what their baby would like…

The First Reviews For “Eclipse” Are In

To any true “Twihard,” getting to see “Eclipse” months before opening night is far better than getting a shiny new car. So, naturally, Oprah decided to treat a very lucky studio audience—who also got to watch her interview Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, and Taylor Lautner—to a special advance screening of the movie which…

Oprah Makes Naomi Campbell’s Ballerina Dreams Come True!

Naomi Campbell, super-temperamental supermodel, was on “Oprah” today explaining her erratic and often, uh, pissy behavior.

Rielle Hunter Tries To Prove What A Private Person She Is On Oprah

Rielle Hunter really wants us to know what a PRIVATE person she is. The best way to do that? An interview with Oprah of course. Yet oddly, her little chat with the Big O seemed anything but private. Like when she admitted that she felt like she did nothing wrong by having an affair…

Yesterday, Oprah brought the OctoMom’s Crazy Coo-Coo Bananas Show to our living room, spending the hour with Nadya Suleman and her brood. In the clip above, one of Nadya’s toddlers “riverdances” (to quote Michael K.) all over one of the octuplets, until Suleman finally notices and declares the baby-stomping “not OK.” Then Suleman coerce…
