Kardashians try to keep up with Oprah -- VIDEO

All the main Kardashians were on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night, and while the group is on hours and hours of E!, the family really didn’t have enough to say to fill a whole hour-long chat.

In one segment, Kim — because she’s serious — wore a tan dress and natural-ish makeup to explain to Oprah how she’s “totally growing up” since her disastrous marriage. She spoke about how she now surrounds herself with older people, and coyly smiled when asked about whether Kanye West is “the new fairy tale.”

Paris Jackson talks to Oprah about life behind the mask

It certainly wasn’t common for most other kids, but Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris tells Oprah in a new interview that the reason she and her brothers wore masks when out with their father was so they could have a normal childhood — at least some of the time.

The 14-year-old explained that while the process was confusing when she was younger, she now understands that her dad was trying to allow her to have the childhood experiences he never had — away from prying cameras. The masks allowed her and her brothers to go out undetected when they weren’t with their famous father. For an act that was endlessly discussed in the press, her level-headed explanation actually makes a lot of sense.

This isn’t the first interview Jackson has given. In December, Paris went on Ellen to talk about her dreams of becoming an actress (she’ll make her debut in the film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys).

Obama visits 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' tonight: Examining his talk show history -- VIDEO

Tonight marks President Barack Obama’s first appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but it’s not the first time POTUS has made stops on the late-night circuit. Until former actor Ronald Reagan moved into the Oval Office, it was unheard of for the president to debase his political capital by visiting the same talk shows that trade in celebrities and animal segments. These days, it’s a required a stop on the campaign trail and an extension of the State of the Union address (minus the drinking games).

Indeed, conservative website the Washington Free Beacon reported yesterday that Obama and First Lady Michelle — who appeared on Late Night in February — have overtaken the Reagans as the most televised presidential couple in history. Even after 2008 opponent John McCain dismissively referred to Obama as a “celebrity,” Obama has been unabashed about appearing on a number of talk shows, including The View, The Daily Show, the Today show, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. He’s also filmed segments for programs ranging from The Colbert Report to American Idol and Betty White’s 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America’s Golden Girl. Below, we run down some of his notable appearances. READ FULL STORY

Sherri Shepherd dishes out celebrity advice after 'DWTS' exit -- VIDEO

Sherri Shepherd’s shocking elimination from Dancing With the Stars last night could have been an occasion for the The View co-host to rail against the judges or begrudge her fellow competitor, who had a lower score on Monday’s performance episode. Instead, Shepherd set the Internet ablaze with her inspirational words to fans: “That thing that scares you the most, that makes you say, ‘I don’t know if I can do it, I’m scared — run towards it because it’s so amazing on the other side.”

Shepherd joins a long list of celebrities who have doled out affirming advice. Below, watch Shepherd’s decidedly less tearful appearance on Good Morning America with partner Val Chmerkovskiy today, then and help us run down some of our favorite celeb’s words to live by. READ FULL STORY

Today in million-year-old feuds: Donald Trump kicks Rosie O'Donnell when she's down... and cancelled

“Rosie fails at everything.” This was the indelicate response from Donald Trump to Friday’s news that Rosie O’Donnell’s OWN talker The Rosie Show was cancelled. If you didn’t know any better you’d think it was 2006 all over again, as the dependably bombastic mogul called Fox and Friends this morning to relish in his archenemy’s shortfall. Trump said he “knew immediately” Rosie wouldn’t succeed and added, “I’ve said it for years. She’ll never make it.” He also snarked about the choice to cancel, “I always knew Oprah was smart.” Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga tells Oprah she wants a 'soccer team' of kids

The ladies of one-name names, Gaga and Oprah, sat down for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter last night to plumb the depths of the pop star’s mind. In a surprisingly demure (yet still Gaga-esque) red trench-coat dress, Gaga opened up on several topics, including her desire for her own Little Monsters, how she deals (or doesn’t) with the media, and the one thing that scares her. Check out highlights of the interview below, with a video after the jump:

On starting a family:
“I want kids. I want a soccer team. I want a husband. I don’t want to have one kid, I want to have a few. I want to experience that.” READ FULL STORY

A look at Oprah's upcoming interview with Whitney Houston's family -- VIDEO

While Oprah Winfrey’s exclusive interview with the family of late legend Whitney Houston doesn’t air until this Sunday on OWN, eager fans or reluctantly curious viewers can get a sneak peek at the sit down. The hour-long episode Oprah’s Next Chapter features Winfrey discussing the life and death of the famed singer with Houston’s brother Gary Houston, sister-in-law Patricia Houston, and her daughter, 16-year-old Bobbi Kristina.

There isn’t much in the clip of Bobbi Kristina –  who landed in the hospital after having a “complete breakdown” because of the passing of her mother — aside from footage of an embrace from Winfrey. But we do get a glimpse into some of the questions the host asked Houston’s family. (“Does it feel real yet that she’s gone?”, “As a big brother, how did you feel about Bobby Brown?”) Watch the preview below:

And YOU get a bonus sketch!: Maya Rudolph as Oprah in 'Saturday Night Live' dress rehearsal

Couldn’t get enough of Maya Rudolph‘s stellar outing as Saturday Night Live host last weekend? (It looks like more than 50 percent of PopWatchers loved her efforts, as you’ve voted the SNL alum the best host of the season so far.) Well, you’re in luck: SNL has released a bonus moment from the Bridesmaids star’s recent appearance and its the funny lady doing none other than her beloved Ooooooppppraaaaaahhhhh impression.

It’s a bit of a bummer that her take on Oprah Winfrey didn’t make it into the live show (though the episode was chock full of impressions, with the red carpet super star playing everyone from Beyoncé to Maya Angelou to First Lady Michelle Obama) but Rudolph sure did look like she was having fun with old pals Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers during the dress rehearsal, didn’t she? Watch the nixed “Weekend Update” Oprah appearance below and decide who has better ideas for OWN: SNL or Jimmy Kimmel?

Jimmy Kimmel's post-Oscar show: Oprah stopped by, as did just about every other celebrity on the planet -- VIDEO

Much like the half-time show and the commercials have become the main reason many opt to stay tuned to the Super Bowl, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar episode may very well become the best excuse to sit through the Oscars. And, as expected, the late night funnyman certainly made it worth the while for viewers who endured the three-hour-plus Academy Awards last night.

One-upping last year’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! After the Academy Awards bit Hottie Body Humpilates, the host managed to get just about every single celebrity in Hollywood to participate in the spoof Movie: the Movie. Combining every movie genre imaginable with every star imaginable in every scenario imaginable (Tom Hanks as a robot lawyer, John Krasinski as a blind prince, Charlize Theron as a no-nonsense judge, Daniel Day-Lewis as Tyler Perry as George Washington, George Clooney as a brilliant but disabled scientist, Gary Oldman as a senator/centaur, Matt Damon as a humiliated grape, Gabourey Sidibe as Black Hitler, and Meryl Streep as Meryl Streep with a mustache, to name just a very few), the trailer for the movie was the montage we’d all desperately wanted all night.

Rumor patrol: Oprah as Blue Ivy Carter's godmother? BFF Gayle says no

Blue Ivy Carter’s birth was feted like the second coming: She had a hit single within days of her birth and became a charter member of Oprah Winfrey’s Book Club for Infants… and then the inevitable backlash began. That’s a whole lot to take in for a not-quite-three-week-old. But this train is bound for glory and shows no signs of stopping. So buck up, Blue, you’ve got a new godmother! And she’s kind of a big deal.

According to reports that surfaced yesterday, Blue Ivy’s famous parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z had tapped Oprah Winfrey to serve as godmother to the tot. Hours after the buzz reached a fever pitch, though, Winfrey’s platonic life-partner Gayle King denied the rumors while co-anchoring CBS This Morning. Said King, “It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother. She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much.” According to King, Winfrey was traveling to South Africa around the time baby Carter was born, so if she is the second-in-line for custody, spiritually speaking. “It is news to her.” See King’s full denial below.
