Can Oprah save Lindsay Lohan?

Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey

Well, that's what Lindsay Lohan's (super annoying) dad Michael Lohan thinks. Once Lindsay completes her three-month stint in rehab, she's apparently going to sit down with Oprah Winfrey for an exclusive interview plus star in an eight-part docu-series about her long road to recovery that will air on OWN. The good thing about all this for LiLo is the two million dollar paycheck that Oprah is going to give Lindsay in exchange for her story. I'd MORE

Is Lindsay Lohan worth two million bucks?

Lindsay Lohan

Despite the fact that Lindsay Lohan has been quietly plugging away in rehab while her lawyer and savig grace Shawn Holley makes sure that she sees the whole thing through, a report from a "source" close to Lindsay who "smells suspiciously like gin" is telling TMZ that Lindsay is finalizing a deal with Oprah Winfrey for an interview/reality series on OWN, and is demanding $2 Million for it. Lindsay Lohan's guts don't come cheap, because we MORE

Lance Armstrong to Oprah: I doped!

Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong

When a major celebrity is taken down in disgrace, there's only one place they can go: Oprah Winfrey's couch, where they will be judged for their sins. Say what you will about Oprah, but you cannot B.S. that woman. She sees through your lies, and if you don't come out with the truth right away, she will silently shame you until you crumble into a pile of a former man. So of course, after Lance Armstrong was publicly disgraced and stripped of his 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

Lady Gaga isn’t talking to anyone!

Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey

After spending the past few years releasing album after album and single after single and touring non-stop, Lady Gaga has finally decided to take a little break and shut herself off from the world (until her Born This Way Ball Tour kicks off on April 27th in Seoul, South Korea). So good news! We can finally stop hearing Lady Gaga talk about how she IS the theatre. Yeah, you ARE the theatre. Feel free to trot out that gem at the Tonys, see how MORE

Lady Gaga wants ALL THE KIDS

Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey

Despite the fact that Lady Gaga thinks she's 24/7 art, refuses to wear normal clothes and performs the kind of constant theatrics that would scar most kids for life, she tells Oprah Winfrey in a new interview (airing Sunday, March 18th on OWN) that she really wants kids at some point. Specifically, enough kids to field a soccer team. People reports: "Yeah, yeah, I do," a (relatively) conservatively dressed Gaga told the talk show host, 58, 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
