Despite all of Lindsay Lohan’s countless fuck-ups, she still appears to be surrounded by entourage of sycophants. Everyone, that is, but Oprah Winfrey. Documentary filmmaker Amy Rice teamed up with OWN for a new docu-series that gives a peek behind the curtain of the troubled actress’ life.
“There’s nothing left in having a drink for me…There’s no party that I haven’t gone to, there’s no person that I haven’t hung out with,there’s no situation that, you know, I haven’t been exposed to,” Lilo crows in the trailer’s opening sequence, more like a 77-year-old than a 27-year-old.

As Gloria Steinem walks Oprah through the beautiful and elaborately decorated NYC apartment she’s lived in since 1966, it’s hard to imagine that until recently, she treated it as a temporary home. “For years and years and years I lived out of cardboard boxes,” says Steinem. “I was brought up to think you didn’t make a home [without] husband and children–you didn’t make it for yourself.” We’re glad she finally settled in, because it’s fascinating to get a glimpse into Steinem’s home life, from the travel mementos and feminist artwork to the living room where she launched Ms. Magazine. The sprawling apartment is worth millions now, but you won’t believe how much she paid for it when she and five of her single pals bought it in the late 80s (hint: it was less than a quarter of the price of Avril Lavigne’s wedding ring). Yep, time to cry. [Refinery 29]
Just found this little gem and thought I’d share. On a recent-ish episode of “In The Bedroom With Dr. Laura,” sexually dissatisfied wife Becky opens up about about her unusual self-pleasuring technique. She likes to hump the corner of her laundry basket to climax — she’s been masturbating this way since college. Fascinating! I am still trying to unpack the logistics of this hump session, but hey, to each her own! Becky’s dependence on her hamper has gotten so out of control that she prefers grinding the basket to grinding her husband Steve’s really “large” penis. The worst part of the whole segment is that Steve silently stands by while Becky tells Dr. Laura what a wimp he is in the sack. Poor guy. Talk about being completely emasculated. But then again, there’s no denying that clean laundry is sexy as hell. Unfortunately, I can’t share the clip, but you can watch it here. [Oprah]
We fell in love with Zach Anner when we saw his early submission to Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network’s “Next Reality Star” competition. Wheelchair-bound Zach, who was born with cerebral palsy, wanted to make a travel show, showing that his disability wasn’t going to stop him from exploring the world around him. Zach won us — and about a zillion other fans — over with his quirky humor, and lucky for him and all of us, Zach got his own show. These days he’s traversing the globe filming “Rollin’ With Zach.” Check out a short teaser above — featuring a theme song by John Mayer. [Oprah]
“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.
