Oprah’s upcoming OWN network has a new trailer, and while it’s no “Get with the program, get with Oprah” song, it’s still very Oprah-y. Hugs! Dancing! Tearing up! Kissing people the way you want to be kissed! Maya Angelou! You know, the basics. If I didn’t know this was a trailer for an entire network, I’d guess that it was a trailer for a season of Oprah, which is probably the point. You don’t get to be one of the most powerful women on earth by going off-brand, you know? READ FULL STORY
Tag: Oprah Winfrey (91-100 of 182)
The easy headline is, “Oprah Denies Being Gay,” but that’s not what was so mesmerizing about Barbara Walters’ video tease of tomorrow night’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. It was Winfrey’s sincere, heartfelt description of her relationship with close friend Gayle King. “She is … the mother I never had. She is … the sister everybody would want,” said Winfrey. “She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don’t know a better person. I don’t know a better person.” READ FULL STORY
her one-time Oprah-esque mogul aspirations, how is Tyra Banks not in this picture? Here’s a poll for you this afternoon: Who’s the most glaring omission (of talk show past and present) from this collection of TV superstars?Tomorrow on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah will talk shop with some of the biggest names from daytime’s past, including Ricki Lake, Phil Donahue, Geraldo Rivera, Montel Williams, and Sally Jessy Raphael. I have to admit, this excellent preview photo actually made me a little misty-eyed thinking of all those afternoons spent chewing over divisive, informative, or otherwise wacky topics with this particular crew of hosts. My first question though: Considering
Almost a year and a half after Michael Jackson’s death, the pop star’s mother, Katherine, and children gave interviews to Oprah Winfrey talking about their son and father. Watching the below clip, I am most struck by two things: 1) How gentle and heartbroken his poor mother is, and 2) How much his daughter, Paris, now looks like her mother, Debbie Rowe. It’s sweet (and kind of shocking) to hear her describe Jackson as “the best cook ever.” Somehow I simply can’t visualize him making them French toast.
Did Oprah’s interviews change your perception of the King of Pop at all? Are you glad his family is speaking out, or should they let his legacy live on as it is? READ FULL STORY
Good thing we can still use it on EW.com! The Oprah Winfrey Network will be “fun and entertaining without tearing people down and calling them bitches,” Oprah said at Maria Shriver’s Women’s Conference yesterday. “Imagine that. Imagine.” Well, s—. Now now one will want to be on her f—ing show.
Are there any other words we want preemptively banned from OWN? Harridan? Wanton Woman? Quagmire? Isotope? Moist?
This is huge news! [THR]

Need to see Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s upcoming Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, but can’t quite make the logistics work? If you were in the audience for last night’s Daily Show, you were in luck.
First, Colbert dropped by to taunt his sanity-promoting rival. Then Oprah Winfrey herself showed up via video screen. She told everyone in the audience to look under their seats, just like she does on her show. They found tickets to Stewart and Colbert’s Oct. 30 event in Washington, D.C. “You’re going to the rally!” Winfrey cried. “You’re going to the rally! Everyone’s going to the rally!” (Of course, since the event is free, those tickets might or might not be worth anything. Maybe she’s covering transportation costs?)
Check out Oprah’s Daily Show appearance after the jump (she arrives a little after the 6:00 mark). Are you planning on attending the rally? Let us know in the comments. READ FULL STORY
