Oprah was told she couldn’t afford a purse?!

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is quite possibly the most powerful woman in the western world, makes more money in the blink of an eye than most people do in an entire year, and is single-handedly responsible for getting bored housewives all over the country to read Middlesex. But when she tried to buy a purse during a trip to Sweden, a clerk told her that she couldn't afford it. Oprah. Really. Via ET Online ... While Winfrey may be one of the most MORE

Oprah Winfrey’s OWN is bleeding money!

Oprah WInfrey - OWN

Despite the fact that she was once the reigning queen of daytime TV and could make millions of bored housewives read a Jonathan Franzen novel just by glancing in its general direction, Oprah Winfrey's network, OWN, has reportedly lost like $330 Million, and honestly, at this point she couldn't be burning money faster if she bought a Cerberus that ate diamonds and Lamborghinis. Via Huffington Post: One of those mistakes might be the apparently MORE

Oprah’s in trouble over Twitter plea!

Oprah Winfrey

So it turns out while Oprah Winfrey's talk show was a massive success, her cable network OWN is ... well, less so. It's gotten so bad for Oprah that now she has to beg people on Twitter to watch her channel because nothing says "grace and dignity" like a billionaire begging the middle class to watch her channel on a social network where people post pictures of their junk. Only it turns out that's against the Nielsen Ratings' policy of not begging MORE

Oprah, Darth Vader to receive Oscars!

Oprah Winfrey

Somehow, neither Oprah nor James Earl Jones have ever won an Oscar, which is really weird because one is known to the world as an enigmatic overlord known for their ability to control things with their mind and an army at their beck and call, and the other played Darth Vader. Anyway, the Academy Awards are going to be acknowledging their contributions by awarding the two of them as well as make-up artist Dick Smith with lifetime achievement MORE

Jenny McCarthy ditched Oprah!

Jenny McCarthy and Oprah Winfrey

Apparently, Oprah Winfrey's new network, OWN, is apparently struggling to find its feet, probably because creating a 24/7 network dedicated to Oprah that does not contain any actual shows featuring Oprah (except Behind The Scenes which is almost over) is a shit idea. But I digress. Anyway, Jenny McCarthy was supposed to have her own show, but decided to up and quit that bitch because she didn't like the direction it was going in, despite the fact MORE

O magazine celebrates Oprah’s 25 years!

Oprah Winfrey - O Magazine

I will probably have a nervous breakdown when the final episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show airs in just two weeks on May 25th, I'm already stocking up on tissues! As most of you know, I'm a huge fan of Oprah Winfrey, and I've been watching her show since I was ten-years-old back in 1986. I can't claim to have seen all of her shows but I've seen a lot of 'em! Afternoons are simply not going to be the same without the queen of daytime, nobody is MORE

Oprah Ate 30 Pounds Of Mac & Cheese

So apparently back in 1998, Oprah fell into a pretty deep depression. And while most people would just pop a bag of chocolate chips in their mouth, Oprah instead ate 30 pounds of Mac & Cheese. For those of you wondering, that's about 18,000 calories. How her heart didn't burst out of her chest and resign in protest is a miracle in and of itself. "[Beloved] premiered on a Friday and I remember hearing on Saturday morning that we got beat by MORE


During the shooting of her show down in Australia, Oprah Winfrey decided to have Hugh Jackman perform a stunt on a zipline because, really, what's better than a sexy man on a zipline? Absolutely nothing, that's what. Anyway, there was a slight problem with the stunt and Hugh ended up taking a lighting rig to his beautiful, beautiful face. Zooming onto the stage on a zip-line, Hugh hit the brakes too late, crashed into a lighting rig and injured MORE

You can all kiss Stewart/Colbert ’12 goodbye!

So Jon Stewart was on Oprah yesterday and ... Oh, I'm sorry, could you all give me a minute? My brain just exploded and it seems to have gotten everywhere. Let me just ... Okay, we're good. Anyway, Jon Stewart was on Oprah to talk about his new book, when he revealed that he will never run for President. Ever. Awwww, now what am I going to do with all these Stewart/Colbert '12 bumper stickers? "I believe Oprah Winfrey just said out loud 'this is MORE

legalbytes: oprah goes to trial

This week in pop culture and law is dedicated to Oprah Winfrey. In a 126-page decision, a Pennsylvania judge refused to dismiss a defamation case against her. The nerve of a judge not to give O her wishes, right? Well, now it's up to a jury to decide the case filed by Larato Mzamane, the former headmistress of O's South Africa-based Leadership Academy of Girls. Mzamane ran O's school when allegations of abuse surfaced, and O publicly said that MORE
