Good Look?? Oprah Wants To Interview Lamar “Light It Up” Odom

lamaroprah2

Lamar may be on his way to a comeback.

Oprah Trying To Interview Lamar

Dude needs this interview if he wants people to forget about him smoking rocks and chopping down slorey mistresses.

According to TMZ:

Oprah Winfrey is making a full-court press to get Lamar Odom to sit down and unload … sources connected with both O and Lamar tell TMZ.

We’re told no deal has been made, but there have been serious discussions and we’re told Lamar is game if the conditions are right.

As for the topics — drug use, Lamar’s troubled marriage to Khloe Kardashian and his future in basketball.

Oprah and Lamar have history … during her Kardashian special, she spoke with everyone in the family including Lamar. He’s been skittish about doing interviews with anyone, but O seems to be an exception.

If the interview does go down, we just hope he keeps it 100 and doesn’t go the Lindsay Lohan route.

Where Have You Been? Black Actresses Whose Talents Need To Be On The Big-Screen More Often

actresses

There are some actresses who we’ve been seeing quite a bit of lately, but what about the ladies whose talents are often slept on?


 

Oprah Winfrey Highest Paid Celebrity

Oprah Winfrey has been named the highest paid celebrity by Forbes magazine for the fourth year in a row. The magazine estimates that Winfrey earned a whopping $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012, which was just $5 million more than Hollywood director Michael Bay who came in a close second at $160 million. What a slacker he is, huh? Pfft.

Oprah’s recent struggles with her network ‘OWN’ have contributed to a big decline in her earnings this past year ($125 million drop) compared to last year’s earnings. However, she still remains at the top of the list for now; we’ll see if she can make it five years in a row next year.

Steven Spielberg was number 3 on the list at $130 million and Jerry Bruckheimer was number 4 at $115 million. Director/producer/writer/actor/astronaut Tyler Perry just missed out on cracking the top five, coming in at number 6 with $105 million — just $5 million behind Dr. Dre who is raking in the money thanks to his line of headphones Beats by Dr. Dre.

Surprisingly, I didn’t even crack the top 20! Apparently, you have to actually make money to be considered. Stealing change out of old couches just doesn’t pay the bills anymore. Michael Bay Oprah Steven Spielberg

 

Joan Rivers Wants to Slap Rihanna!

You can always count on Joan Rivers to say something stupid. The extremely old “comedian” didn’t like Rihanna’s interview with Oprah that aired last Sunday. She especially didn’t like the part where Rihanna said that she still loves Chris Brown — and she let the whole world know how she felt about it…

 

 

A little harsh, don’t you think? I don’t think slapping Rihanna would help her get over Chris Brown; if anything it would make her miss him even more. Plus, Rihanna said in the interview that Chris Brown has a new girlfriend and made it clear that they are not back together.

Rihanna responded to Joan’s tweet by telling Joan to “slap on some diapers.” It’s nice to see that they are both keeping things classy. Apparently, they are letting Andy Milonakis write their jokes for them. It’s kind of funny when celebrities comment on other celebrities’ lives, especially when you remember they get mad at us for doing the same thing.

People need to realize that life would be a very boring place without gossip. Stop acting like you’re “above” gossip; we’re all addicted to gossip.

Just embrace it! Joan Rivers Joan Rivers Rihanna

 

OPRAH’S ‘AHA MOMENT’ NOW TO BE DEFINED IN NEXT EDITION OF MERRIAM-WEBSTER

For its 2012 edition, the folks at Merriam-Webster have announced that Oprah’s oft used term,  “aha moment” will be added to their dictionary, defining it as: “a moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension.”

Don’t make the mistake of thinking, as the media and perhaps even Ms. OWN herself may lead you to assume, that Oprah coined the term, “aha moment”.  Not so, peeps. A 2009 NY Times article highlights a dispute between Oprah’s production company, Harpo Productions, Inc. and Mutual of Omaha (you’ve got to be kidding, Oprah!). The story goes that Mutual of Omaha’s advertising team had come up with and were using the slogan, “official sponsor of the aha moment”  in a national advertising campaign and Harpo didn’t like it. Harpo, in a letter to Mutual, asked Mutual to stop using “aha moment” to promote its insurance and financial products because it didn’t want confusion about whether there was a relationship between Mutual and Winfrey. Really?  Was Harpo concerned that Oprah would end up in the tabloids with headlines like, “Oprah and Mutual of Omaha share an aha moment behind closed doors of a hotel room located in a secluded exotic location.”??? Scratching my head right now.

Winfrey’s representatives argued that the phrase was synonymous with Winfrey and her show. Winfrey often discusses “aha moments” — described on her magazine’s Web site as “those flashes of understanding” — with guests on her show.  — Dear Ms. OWN,…I think you are taking OWN way too seriously.  You don’t OWN “aha moment” just because you said it a few times.  I say “shit” all the time and that don’t make me the owner of crap!

Mutual responded with a lawsuit and documents showing it had obtained preliminary approval of a federal trademark.  If you’d like to know the origin of “aha moment” and read more about the Harpo/Mutual of Omaha dispute, go here: NY Times 2009 article

The self-made media queen has been under much scrutiny since she left a major television network and her 25 year long day time show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, to spearhead her own network, OWN whose ratings, to date, have been less than stellar. It has been an uphill journey for the former daytime diva after coasting for so many years on the success of The Oprah Winfrey show.  Then again, can you really feel sorry for a woman who has amassed a net worth estimated at $2.8 billion?  Don’t count Oprah out yet on her shaky OWN ratings either.  As you recently read right here on The Daily Fix, Winfrey just interviewed the beautiful and talented, Rihanna which will air on Oprah’s Next Chapter Sunday, Aug. 19 on OWN. In the interview Rihanna speaks candidly about her ex, Chris (Punched me in the Face) Brown.

Oh, and in case you’d like to know what other terms are being included in Merriam-Webster’s next dictionary edition they are:  Sexting, energy drink, f-bomb, man cave and bucket list.  My guess is Harpo won’t go after those using the f-bomb term claiming it’s synonymous with Winfrey and her network.

 

 

Rihanna Talks Chris Brown with Oprah

Rihanna got real emotion while talking to Oprah about her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown. She talked about that horrible night back in 2009 when Chris Brown assaulted her. Tears started to roll down Rihanna’s face when she began to think about that night, but not for the reasons you may think.

“It was a weird, confusing space to be in…because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who’s going to help him? Nobody’s going to say he needs help. Everybody’s going to say he’s a monster without looking at the source…and I was more concerned about him.” she told Oprah during the interview that will air Sunday night on OWN.

She told Oprah that she lost her best friend that night and that her whole life changed. It just goes to show you just how close they were before that terrible incident took place. You can kind of get where she is coming from, but it’s hard to feel sorry for Chris Brown. It’s not like he has changed completely since that night; he has had multiple episodes since then.

But, I’m not rooting against him; I hope one day he does change completely. Heck, he might even put out some quality music one day, too! As little J.P. from Angels in the Outfield might say, “It could happen!” Rihanna Rihanna1

 

 

 

 

Lady Gaga wants her own Little Monsters?

Lady Gaga doesn’t exactly seem like the “settling down” type of gal. But in a recent interview with Oprah, Gaga revealed some pretty surprising news. Lady Gaga said that she wanted a “soccer team” full of kids.

“Yeah, Yeah, I do. I mean maybe I’m being a bit superfluous [about the soccer team], but I don’t want to have one [child], I want a few” Gaga said. She also talked about how she wants a husband, making a gesture to indicate a baby bump, “I want to experience that. “ She said.

But don’t expect her to be popping out babies any time soon. She said that she wants a family – just “not yet.” So, it could be ten years down the road before she decides to pop out one of her own little monsters. Interestingly enough, she is also planning on taking a break from interviews. The singer revealed she is taking a self-imposed vow of silence.

“Other than this interview, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time…No press, no TV. If my mom calls and says, “Did you hear about…I shut it all off”

How long will her interview hiatus last? We are currently taking bets. We’re saying it’ll last about 3 weeks…why? Because she’ll have to defend herself against all the pregnancy rumors that are sure to come from this interview. Lady Gaga wants her own Little Monsters? Lady Gaga wants her own Little Monsters? Lady Gaga wants her own Little Monsters?

 

Whitney Houston’s Sister-In-Law ‘I don’t know how’ Whitney Got in the Tub

Do you remember a week or so ago when there were rumors going around that Whitney Houston was murdered? Well, those rumors are only going to spread after hearing what Whitney Houston’s sister Pat had to say to Oprah last night.

“Don’t know how she got [in the tub]… I just know they had to pull her out of [the tub].”  She told Oprah. She also talked about the moment she found out what happened, saying that she heard screams coming from Houston’s room and when she arrived she saw one of the singer’s assistant in tears. She was able to see her sister before paramedics arrived, “She had a peaceful look on her face” Patricia Houston said.

This will only keep the debate alive. What did she mean exactly by saying, “she doesn’t know how she got in the tub?” and who would murder her? Did she have any close enemies? It would have to be someone close to her, right? Since Houston was surrounded by people who loved her in the hotel room.

It should be noted that the Coroner has already said there was no sign of foul play or trauma. However, the official cause of death will not be determined until toxicology results are in.

Oprah Tries to Have Hugh Jackman Killed

You get a drop of Wolverine blood! And you get drop of Wolverine blood!! And you get a drop of Wolverine blood!!!

Hugh Jackman flew into some slight technical difficulties while performing a stunt for Oprah’s Australian show. He had some trouble transitioning from Opera to Oprah, crashing into a lighting rig during a zip-line run from the Sydney Opera House to the talk-show host’s stage. Apparently, he was too caught up waiving to friends, fans, and family below to see the approaching obstacle. Luckily for him he only sustained a minor black eye and Oprah’s plans of having him killed have failed… FOR NOW!

Gotta love how the Aussies fix everything with a bit of wine. Even when you almost lost an eye and your nuts in one fell swoop. Wine takes the pain away.

Only Harpo Could Get The Real Exclusive On Jennifer Hudson And More Baby Pictures


J-Hud was looking real good on Oprah yesterday, seemingly more mature and more healed from her ordeal:

Most new mothers will take any opportunity to show off photographs of their bundle of joy, and Jennifer Hudson was certainly no exception, as she proudly shared her snaps of her baby boy David with Oprah Winfrey. Speaking to the Queen of Chat on her show yesterday, the singer cooed over recent photos of her four-month-old son and revealed that she is planning to make his first Christmas a special one. She said: ‘I’m going to go crazy. He’s very aware but he’s so young and it’s his first Christmas, so you have to go all-out.’

She said she would like to get him his own Santa and toy store, and added: ‘I kind of want to get him his own Santa Claus and just have like a toy store in the house, full of things.’ Hudson, 28, gave birth to David Daniel – named after his father, Jennifer’s fiancé David Otunga, a lawyer-turned-WWE wrestler – in August this year.

He was born almost a year after the tragic murders of the Oscar-winner’s 57-year-old mother, Darnell Donnerson, her 29-year-old brother, Jason Hudson and seven-year-old nephew Justin King. Police arrested William Balfour, 27, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia, in connection with the killings, and he was charged with three counts of first degree murder and is currently awaiting trial.

Hudson shot to fame after she came in third on reality TV show American Idol, the US version of the X Factor, in 2004. Hudson has been a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and gave the chat show host her first interview since the family murders in February of this year. On yesterday’s show, after gushing about baby David to Oprah and her other guests, country music duo, Sugarland, she joined the pair on stage for a rendition of the Christmas carol, Silent Night.

The little whipper snapper is adorable. It’s weird, but going through turmoil and then having a child can be such a relief.

Horror:the patron saint of fat women will call it quits in 2011.Yeah, Oprah is quitting.

oprah_wideweb__470x3120

You guys, this is an emotional moment. You mean to say, they’ll be no more “my vajayjay is painin!!”? moments? Oh, no, the urge to go for a double decker with an extra large side of fries is utterly overwhelming. Oprah, help, we can’t do it without you. And we were seriously hopping to get another chance to win a Prius…because we know how happy you get on your somewhat slim-but definitely not a gorilla in red lipstick days.

Ok, people, let’s focus on the positives. After all we still have 680 days with the anointed patron of couch potatoes. Let’s start appreciating what we will soon not have by watching more…wait a second, could that be why she gave us these 680 days? Could this be all about ratings? Ma, where’s that gallon of Ben&Jerry’s? We’re feeling a panic attack coming our way!!

After more than 20 years at the top of the daytime talk show game, Oprah Winfrey’s calling it quits.

Share

According to insiders, Winfrey informed her staff of her decision late yesterday afternoon in a company meeting, described as “emotional, supportive and respectful.”

That same afternoon, Tim Bennett, president of Winfrey’s Harpo production house, announced that the media mogul will step off the “Oprah” set in September 2011. He said Winfrey will confirm the news on Friday’s edition of her show.

“The Oprah Winfrey Show” will not move on to the cable Oprah Winfrey Network or OWN.

Since “Oprah’s” 1986 inception, Winfrey’s grown to be far more than a shoulder to cry on for scandal-scarred stars. Her empire — which includes films, books, magazines and Web sites, in addition to her TV show — influences people the world over, and her wealth — at one point, she was the world’s only African-American billionaire, according to Forbes magazine — grants her access to people, places and things few others can conceive.

What’s next for Winfrey? Perhaps she’ll drop a hint on her show Friday.

 

A “Lil Positivity”: Oprah, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Penny Hardway Have All Together Donated $5 Million to Different Charities

Oprah, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Penny Hardway have all made the “The Giving Back 30″ list. This list features the top 30 celebrities who have made the largest donations to charity. Oprah is listed in the top ten, while Will, Jada, and Penny are all in the top 20. For the past two years Oprah has been named the most generous celebrity but this year the spot was taken by Paul Newman.

The Giving Back Fund’s third annual Giving Back 30, a list of celebrities who have made the largest donations to charity according to public records, was released in the November 1st issue of PARADE Magazine.

Readers may have been surprised to learn that Paul Newman replaced Oprah Winfrey as the most generous celebrity of 2008. Oprah had occupied the number one spot by a wide margin for the first two years of the list. Before his death, Newman made a donation of nearly $21 million to his self-named Newman’s Own Foundation. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were second with a $13.5 million donation to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which distributed $6.4 million to charity, including a $2 million grant to The Global Health Committee for an Ethiopian clinic project, a $1 million grant to the Make it Right Foundation founded by Pitt, and $500,000 to the Armed Services YMCA USA.

“Our hope is that celebrities will begin to become more comfortable sharing information about their charitable giving — perhaps not disclosing everything they give, but sharing enough to enable them to serve as role-models to their peers and fans,” said Marc Pollick, President and Founder of The Giving Back Fund.

It’s always nice to see celebrities giving back and helping those less unfortunate. This year we had four names on the list, lets see who will step up to the plate so we can keeping adding more of us each and every year.

 

Oprah To Rosie O’Donnell: Ho Sit Down & Stop Calling Me and Gayle Gay


oprah_gayle

Oprah is fed up with Rosie O’Donnell and her gay rumors geared at her and Gayle.  An insider says that Oprah has sent Rosie a final warning and it ain’t nice.

While promoting her new satellite radio show on the Howard Stern show late last month, Rosie said that she can’t say for sure that Oprah and Gayle are necessarily doing each other, but she thinks they are the emotional equivalent of a gay couple. She says that the road trip the two took for Oprah’s show is as gay as it gets.

When Oprah got wind of this, she immediately sent out a warning message to Rosie.
