Yep, This Sums Up Last Night’s Oscars Pretty Perfectly

As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who Say] Keep reading »

Oprah Talks To Transgender Model Lea T


Lea T has modeled for Givenchy and smooched Kate Moss on the cover of LOVE magazine: now the world’s most famous male-to-female transgender model is dishing the dirt on Oprah‘s couch. Er, armchair. I didn’t know this before, but Lea T was born Leandro Cerezo in Italy to a soccer star father and Catholic mother. I’m sure they are swelling with pride … at least until Oprah asked, “How do you, if I may ask, how do you hide your penis? You must have to strap that thing down in there?” Aaaaand scene.

Glozell Dissects Britney’s “Hold It Against Me”

Glozell is back! I really do love her videos on Youtube.com because they truly make me laugh and just squeal with delight (be sure and watch the ‘Subway’ video).

Well, Ms. G has tackled Ms. B – yep, Britney Spears and the lyrics of her recent smash hit song “Hold It Against Me.” Now, Glozell makes a good point about this classic pickup line and how lame it is and the other gem that all these girls are basically hooking up instantaneously with men in the club…what a role model for young girls!

And she also takes on Oprah’s secret sister … behold both videos by clicking here! Keep reading »

Oprah’s Network To Air Documentary “Becoming Chaz” About Cher’s Transgender Son


You might expect movies to go straight from the uber-crunchy Sundance Film Festival to, say, the uber-crunchy Independent Film Channel (IFC). But one Sundance documentary of serious cultural import will go a more mainstream route: Oprah’s new network, OWN, will air the television premiere of “Becoming Chaz,” about Chaz Bono‘s gender reassignment surgery. Chaz, the transgender son of Cher and Sonny Bono, was born “Chastity.” But he realized his true self was male and has gone through the long process to make the physical and emotional transformation. (Luckily he has the support of his femme girlfriend of four years, Jennifer Elia.) “Becoming Chaz” debuts at Sundance on January 23 and should air on OWN in May. I’m super-happy that OWN is using its mainstream appeal to give transgendered men and women visibility (than, say, the catchphrase “hot tranny mess”). I’m hoping Cher speaks up in the documentary, too, even if it’s just to tell other parents of transgender kids that she, too, sometimes forgets not to call her son “her”!

Oprah Talks About Getting Pregnant At 14, Drinking Detergent As A Cry For Help

“Me getting pregnant was a result of bad choices, not having boundaries, sexual abuse from the time I was 9, 10, 11, 12, 13. … My mother said, ‘You can’t stay here,’ so I had to move with my father in Nashville. I hid the whole thing. … My father as part of his decree about what’s gonna go on in his house and what isn’t gonna go on in the house said … ‘I would rather see a daughter of mine floating down the Cumberland River than to bring shame on this family with the indecency of an illegitimate child.’ He said this and I know that I am pregnant. So I’m thinking, ‘Well, I’m just going to have to kill myself.’ … I did stupid things like, you know, drinking detergent and all that crazy stuff that you do when you’re trying to get attention, when you’re really just trying to cry for help.”

Oprah talks to Piers Morgan about getting pregnant at age 14, and feeling “no connection to [the baby] whatsoever.” Shortly after the detergent drinking incident, Oprah lost the baby. She says that she took it as her second chance. Watch more of the powerful interview here. [via NY Daily News] Keep reading »

What Would Your TV Show Be About?

So everrrrrrybody’s talking about Oprah’s new Oprah Winfrey Network business–and we’re not gonna lie, we’re watching. The show we’re most psyched on? Her Machiavellian-tinged “Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star.” The show pits 12 regular folks against each other for the chance to, yes, have their own show on the fledgling Oprah-fied network. Most of the prospectives have either cooking program or talk show plans. But not our personal frontrunner: Zach Anner, a 25-year-old guy with cerebral palsy who’s aiming to make a travel show about all the things that go wrong when you travel. He describes his cerebral palsy as “the sexy palsy,” so you know he’s got a sense of humor. Plus, it’s refreshing to see a differently-abled person on television. It also got us thinking: what would we do if we had our own television show? Most likely it would involve traveling, cute animals and random make-out session-filled cameos from Joseph Gordon-Levitt. What about you? Tell us about your television show dreams in the comments. Keep reading »

Hugh Jackman’s Zip Line Snafu On “Oprah”

Yesterday, Oprah did an ode to Australia, filming live from the Sydney Opera House. Hugh Jackman was one of the episode’s guest stars and he had a high adrenaline entrance—zip lining from the top of the Opera House down to Oprah’s stage. While the stunt went great during rehearsals, while actually filming, Hugh hit the brakes just a little too late, and swung up into the lighting rig, hurting his right eye. Paramedics rushed on stage and Oprah yelled, “Cut!.”

“Just Friends” Oprah And Gayle King Get Their Own Porn Spoof

Ever wonder what a porn starring Oprah and her best buddy Gayle King would look like? Me neither. That’s why Hustler hired two young ladies who wouldn’t even look like these totally-not-lesbians (“TISSUE PLEASE!”) after four beers for a klassy XXX spoof called “Untrue Hollywood Stories: Oprah.” Adult film actress Misty Stone stars as Oprah and Bella Moretti stars as Gayle in the porno, which will be released in January. What we really want to know is who is going to play Steadman? [TMZ.com] Keep reading »
