Pippa Middleton’s backside is already famous. If The Enquirer’s sources are accurate, we may be seeing a whole lot more of P-Middy from the front. Word on the ‘bloid circuit is that Oprah Winfrey is pursuing Pippa to become daytime royalty at OWN. Yes, you read that correctly, Pippa Middleton may get her OWN talk show. After the jump, some concepts for Pippa’s talk show, if it’s really happening, that is. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Chaz Bono Had To Relearn How To Be In A Relationship After He Transitioned

“We had to really almost re-learn how to communicate and how to be around each other. Suddenly [things I used to say] didn’t mean the same thing to her. And so we really had to, you know, adjust our — how we did things and relearn how to be together.”

Chaz Bono on his relationship with his partner, Jennifer Elia, post-transition. This is so fascinating to me. I really admire couples who manage to stay together through such intense life experiences. I’m really excited to see the documentary, “Becoming Chaz,” which aired earlier this week on OWN. Check out the trailer here. [iVillage] 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”!

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 »

Oprah’s New Channel OWN Won’t Use The B-Word

In a major departure from her previous programming — some of the filthiest programs on television — Oprah has said no one on her new channel will be using the word “bitches.” I just hope the Oprah Winfrey Network cleans up their act and bans “hoes” and “sluts,” too, because you know those Oprah gals get mouths on them when they’re fired up! Maybe OWN could start a company-wide “swear jar” and be fined a quarter whenever someone says a naughty word. Then Oprah could collect all the money and buy herself something nice for once!
