Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Oprah Tells Lindsay Lohan to “Cut the Bull” In Reality Show Extended Promo

Oprah got Lindsay Lohan TOGETHER in the extended promo of Lindsay’s upcoming reality show, Lindsay, on OWN!

The clip gives an inside look into how difficult the actress was while filming her life after her stint in rehab.

“So we were supposed to start shooting at 12:30 and Lindsay is locked out of her apartment. Which means we might not start shooting for a couple of hours,” director Amy Rice says with a sigh after a number of Lindsay’s tearful scenes from the first trailer are shown. She then jumps on her cell phone and says, “She’s not letting us into her apartment.”

Oprah soon comes in to settle the fuss. “My truth is that I really do want you to win. I really do,” the talk-show host says. “If that isn’t what you want, I’m OK with that, you know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave.”

“No, it’s not that I’m not ready to do that, I do want to,” Lindsay replies before Oprah lets her know upfront: “You need to cut the bulls–t then, you really do.”

Check out the extended sneak peek below!

Lindsay premieres on Sunday, March 9, at 10 p.m. on OWN. I will definitely be watching! I’m rooting for Lindsay, though I’m not exactly sure how a reality show is going to help her better her life. I hope she stays on the right track, though!

Oprah vs. Jenny McCarthy?

The media mogul had to hop on her Twitter account to put to rest the rumors that she had a bone to pick with new co-host of The View Jenny McCarthy.

“@JennyMcCarthy don’t have a s–t list If I did you’d never be on it. Wishing you only good fortune, love and light and watching @theview.”
The reason for the admission on Oprah’s account? Jenny McCarthy went on Watch What Happens Live and opined that Oprah was out to get her:
“I would be scared that she would beat me up. I’m sure there’s probably a lot of people on her s–t list. I’m probably number four.”

Jenny McCarthy obviously thinks too high of herself, because Oprah has bigger fish to fry.

But let’s see how long Jenny lasts on The View. So far?

It looks like she’s more than likely on Barbara Walters s—t list.

Oprah to Lindsay: I OWN You!

So after a stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan thought she would traipse around Europe for a few months and collect herself. Well, now that she has signed on to the dotted line with OWN (and Oprah), plans have changed. It seems that Oprah is making an executive decision on her latest acquisition and putting an 86 on the Strawberry Snortcake’s travel plans.

According to reports, after Winfrey heard about Lindsay’s intentions of traveling in Europe, she felt like a relapse was inevitable and so talked Lindsay into re-thinking her moves. In other words, Oprah told her: “I OWN you. You aren’t going anywhere!”

Since Lohan is set to star in her own reality series on the OWN network, Oprah could not risk Lohan relapsing and dying before the show is even shot, so who can blame her? If we were Oprah, we would have let Lindsay go and started filming during the rip. We’d love to see Lohan vomiting and snorting in stall #3 at various hours of the night. That’s ratings gold!

2011 TCA Winter Press Tour -  OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network Cocktail Reception

Oprah Sinks to a New Lohan

It looks like OWN needs a bit of a bump in the ratings oprahand speaking of bumps, lumps, and chumps, Oprah’s fledgling network has called on the paparazzi’s #1 meal ticket to give her network a boost in the ratings.

When Lindsay Lohan gets out of jail and realizes how far Amanda Bynes has run with her CrackWhore title, she will need a new avenue for some PR, so here comes Oprah to save the day! The two will set down and Oprah will interview everyone’s favorite Strawberry Snortcake to find out what rehab was like and how she’s moving forward with her life.

And after that?

Oprah’s network is gonna follow this foolyun around long enough to shoot an 8-part documentary that shows how The Lohan plans to rebuild her career and her path to sobriety.

Excuse us while we snicker in the corner…

DMX vs. OWN

Now, this is not even a contest, because Oprah Winfrey can pay someone a few shekels to end it all for DMX and not many would even care. He’s been incarcerated for so long that most people barely even remember that he is a rapper. What they DO remember is that he is unhinged, crazy, deranged, and he showed the world all of that and more during a recent dit-down with talk show hostess Iyanla Vanzant, whose show ‘Fix My Life‘ airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

DMX-Iyanla

During the interview, Vanzant asked the troubled rapper about his addictions and to say he appeared incoherent would be an understatement of epic proportions. The hip-hop star went off on so many tangents that viewers probably had to press rewind to understand most of it. Afterwards, he expressed extreme displeasure in what was asked of him and claimed that his drug use was not supposed to be mentioned. He vows to sue Oprah. Someone must need a new crack pipe!

Good luck with that lawsuit, DMX!

Beyoncé Will Be Interviewed for Oprah’s Next Chapter

Beyoncé is the next celeb in line to sit down with Oprah Winfrey for an intimate conversation on Oprah’s Next Chapter! The one-on-one interview will air the same night as Bey’s long-awaited HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream. The Oprah interview will premiere at 8 p.m. EST Saturday February 12, and the documentary will air directly after at 9 p.m. EST on HBO. Don’t worry: There won’t be a conflict. The OWN interview will air at 8 p.m. this Saturday, and the HBO documentary airs at 9. 

This is honestly something that I’m extremely excited about, yet very surprised by. Beyoncé is a notoriously private person, and admittedly struggles with how much to reveal about herself. So to have an interview with Oprah, and a revealing documentary is really special! I’m praying that she actually gets personal with this interview and documentary! A few things I’m hoping for on what I’ve deemed “Bey Night?” Beyoncé to possibly discuss some well-kept family secrets with Oprah like her devastating miscarriage and her father, Mathew Knowles, having a son with another woman. Oh, and to see Blue Ivy without a blanket over her face! She’s a cute little baby…Bey and Jay need to show her off more!

Tyler Perry & Oprah Winfrey In Bed Together

Ha! As if that’s ever going to happen!

Now that I’ve got your attention, let me go on and you will soon see why Oprah continues to be the richest woman in the field of entertainment. Fresh from topping the Forbes list again as Hollywood’s most lucrative woman, now comes news that Winfrey has reached a deal with producer/writer/actor Tyler Perry to deliver two new scripted series to her OWN network sometime around mid-2013.

Under terms of the deal, Perry’s production company will produce, write and direct these shows in what will be the network’s first attempts at scripted television. Oprah Winfrey commented on the news…

“I have been looking forward to the day when we would be in the position to enter the world of scripted television. That day has come. “We are all energized by the opportunity to collaborate with Tyler who has a proven track record for producing highly successful cable series.”

Now I certainly am not the biggest fan of Tyler Perry’s. I, frankly, find his writing/acting/directing absolute crap, but hey, who cares what I think? He creates fodder that people buy and watch, so this looks like a good move for OWN. And if all else fails, Oprah can always snatch up Bobbi Kristina and have a camera crew follow her around for a reality show. That’s guaranteed gold right there. And if anyone reads this and I see Bobbi Kris on a reality show of her own any time soon….
I’m demanding a check!

Rihanna Tells Oprah Still Loves Chris Brown (VIDEO)

In the exclusive interview with Oprah for OWN’s Oprah’s Next Chapter, Rihanna confirms that she is still seeing Chris Brown and she does still love him. Surprise, surprise! Tell us something that we didn’t know, right? Well actually, she does!

Ri came clean on many rumors including partying on a yacht in St. Tropez with Brown and admitted that her heart still flutters whenever she sees her ex.

Rihanna told Big O, “Yes I did, we went to a mutual friend’s party on a yacht. It’s awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain that and suppress that but interpret and understand that’s not going to go away … When you don’t understand those feelings you can make a lot of mistakes.”

She went on to add that she believes that he could have and still could be the one. “I think he was the love of my life. He was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way. I truly love him. The main thing for me is he’s at peace. I’m not at peace if he’s not happy or he’s still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace”, she said.

I loved this interview. Rihanna really showed a soft, sensitive side to her and gave us all a real valuable lesson on forgiveness.

Check out the clips below.

Oprah snagged up RiRi Interview for OWN!

Oprah is just rolling in the big interviews as of late. It’s time to amp up the talk time with Big O and she has not confirmed that she will sit down with Rihanna and talk to RI about her life, loves and her recent health woes.

You KNOW Oprah is going to talk Chris Brown and you KNOW she is going to ask about Ashton Kutcher. But will she have the balls to ask about the Drake-Breezy altercation? And what about the slutty ensembles she’s been sporting as of late? Gawd, I hope so. We love our old Riri (no nipples exposed) fashionista and want her back!

I just hope that Big O will make the interview interesting with questions asked that we haven’t yet heard an answer to. Come on, Oprah! Bring it!

Apparently filming is set to begin within the next coming weeks and we will get to see the interview in August.

Oprah to the Silver Screen

Will Oprah join The Butler?

What do you do when you fledgling network is not meeting expectations, you have to fire a sizable portion of your staff (including Rosie O’Donnell), and  your best friend is working for your competitors on one of the Big three networks?

You head for the silver screen!

Former talk show host and now behind her OWN network, is returning to the big screen with a line-up of heavyweights that is sure to have people talking about her in a positive light once again.

The Butler is set to a be a bio-pic chronicling the story of Eugene Allen, a black man who served as a butler in the White House for eight presidents. Oprah’s co-stars are slated to be Forest Whitaker, who will be playing the role of Allen, Hugh Jackman, Liam Neeson, and Jane Fonda, who will portray First Lady Nancy Reagan. The director of all these stars will be Lee Daniels, who received an Oscar nomination for Precious.

Is Oprah headed for an acting Oscar? She’s been nominated for Oscars before, and she can certainly do it again.

Never count the big O out!

Oprah Winfrey Lands Bobbi Kristina interview!

Oprah done did it. She landed an exclusive interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina. Hello ratings gold! Her OWN network has been suffering big time but you best believe that this huge interview is going to straighten her network right out at least for a hot minute.

The Associated Press is reporting that not only has Oprah landed an interview with Whitney’s daughter but also other family members. I’m thinking it is safe to say that Bobby Brown will NOT be one of those individuals.

Here’s what we know:

The interview will not be shot in front of a live studio audience as per Oprah’s usual style.

“Oprah’s Next Chapter” will feature an interview with 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina, Houston’s only child. It will also include Patricia Houston, who’s the singer’s sister-in-law and manager, as well as the singer’s brother Gary.

For all of you wondering (which I am sure many of you are) the air date for this TV special is March 11th on Oprah’s OWN network.

Let me just ask this…who WON’T be watching?

Oprah Gets Sirius with “Lifeclass”

Yesterday Sirius XM Radio announced that “Oprah’s Lifeclass” is airing on Oprah Radio, Winfrey’s SiriusXM channel. Yeah Oprah has her own radio channel. On Sirius.

Check out what O has to say about her new show and channel below. Maybe she’ll have better luck on the airwaves than her OWN network.

Rosie O’Donnell reveals new “boy” crush

As if we REALLY care, but I have to admit her choice is an interesting one.

Back when she had her talk show on air, avid viewers all knew of Rosie O’Donnell’s big fat crush on Tom Cruise…her beloved Tommy. Well, it seems as if Rosie has a new crush and she demanded that he be her first guest on her NEW talk show on OWN.
