On the next episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, the 61-year-old media mogul catches up with In Living Color‘s Tommy Davidson, Playboy Bunny Holly Madison and Who’s The Boss child actor Danny Pintauro.

While Pintauro has found happiness these days, marrying his boyfriend Wil Tabares last year, there was a time when the Jonathan Bower portrayer’s life wasn’t so sunny. The 39-year-old reveals a dark secret and how it’s an epidemic in the gay community. Check out a teaser below.

September is a key month for the publishing world. Editors bring out the big guns to ensure that their all-important issue flies off the newsstands.

Harper’s Bazaar wrangled up a wide range of celebrities for a full-on fall fashion fantasy spread. Carine Roitfeld and photographer Jean-Paul transform the likes of Katy Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Chastain and more into history’s legends. Perry channels Elizabeth Taylor in the above pic. Check out the others below.

It’s two Jennifers for the price of one. Jennifer Hudson and former Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Nettles duet on “You Will.” The empowering ballad was written by Diane Warren and will be the new official anthem for the OWN network.

“I was so touched when Diane Warren came to me and said she wrote a song with OWN in mind,” said Oprah Winfrey. “And then to have Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Nettles bring the song to life with their stunning collaboration… what a gift.”

Though very different genres, country and R&B artists have often time teamed up for some wicked collaborations in the past. This one is just the latest. Though Hudson steals the show a bit, their vocals complement each other. “You Will” will no doubt do well on adult contemporary stations due to its message and Oprah’s legions of loyal fans. Give it a listen below.

On Oscar night you can’t have your average run-of-the-mill photobooth. Especially when you’re Vanity Fair and hold one of the most exclusive and hottest parties. The publication enlisted frequent GQ contributor Mark Seliger to snap some of the celebrities who attended their annual fete.

“As guests leave the red carpet and enter the main #vfoscarparty space, they’ll have the option to stop by the studio and stake a claim to immortality — or at least strike a few portfolio-style poses.” – Vanity Fair explains about their photobooth

Who chose the option to be immortalized? Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Aniston, Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, Adam Levine, Karlie Kloss and Monica Lewinsky to name a few.

Speaking of the latter, how did the former White House intern snag an invite to the party? I’d like some tips on how to crash this party one day :) Check out more photos below Vanity Fair shared on their Instagram account.

It’s no surprise that 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle led the way with seven nominations each when the 71st annual Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning. Both have done well with all the critics awards leading up to today’s announcement, especially the former. The latter’s cast were showered with praises, earning a nod in every acting comedy category.

What was surprising, if not shocking, was one notable snub. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association are notorious star f**kers. They have a long history of nominating substandard performances in hopes of filling up the ballroom with famous people. However this year, lesser known names made the cut while arguably one of the most famous, if not powerful, person got completely shunned. Oprah Winfrey, my dear… you don’t get a nod! You don’t get a nod! In fact, no one from the star-studded Lee Daniels’ The Butler, including the film itself was nominated. The film was not only a box office hit but a critical favorite as well.

The silver lining is that there is absolutely no crossover with the HFPA voters and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. However, it’s still nice to be nominated given the show is widely seen and offers a great opportunity for those in the race to do some hardcore publicity and campaigning. With regards to the HFPA, I’d still be worried if I was one of the 90-something GG voters. We all know how long Winfrey likes to hold a grudge. Just go ask David Letterman.

Check out all the nominations below. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014. I have high hopes they’ll deliver another winning performance.

Once a year, the New York Times enlists the year’s top moviemaking talent to film shorts for their web series, Making A Scene. Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski directed the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper and Michael B. Jordan to deliver just one line. Not just any line, but one carefully crafted by Spike Jonze, Sarah Polley, Jeff Nichols, Ethan Hawke and other talented individuals.

“Most of the vignettes are slightly whimsical and off-center,” explains Kaminski in a behind-the-scenes clip. How else can you describe Winfrey spouting nonsense into a microphone or Cooper splashing around in a big puddle also speaking abstract words” Even though Blanchett’s film is equally as puzzling (I’m not that deep nor cerebral), somehow I buy it. The woman is just plain fierce and commands the screen. It doesn’t matter that it looks like a glorified fish commercial.

Check out the borderline indulgent and somewhat pretentious shorts below. They’re definitely not to everyone’s liking.

I don’t know how Hollywood Reporter consistently does it. Gathering six extremely-busy actresses for a photoshoot snapped by Joe Pugliese and for an hour-long roundtable discussion must be a difficult feat. Reportedly, coordinating these six women began all the way in the Summer. However, I’m sure they jumped at the chance to be in the company of the other talented actresses. Plus, it’s never too early to start campaigning for that 2014 Oscar.

Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Amy Adams (American Hustle, Her), Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), and Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) are all being hailed as Oscar contenders this year. The road to Hollywood success hasn’t always been a barrel of laughs though. The six discuss their scariest on-set moments, fears, sacrifices, the greatest advice they ever received and much, more more. Watch the video and check out more pics below.

Oprah Winfrey & Diablo Cody Are Moody Bitches

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Nope, they’re both not on the rag. Rather the two are teaming up for a new show on HBO. Yup, you read that correctly. HBO and not OWN. Weird that Oprah Winfrey isn’t developing it for her own network. Strange, right?

The yet-untitled comedy will be based on Dr. Julie Holland’s upcoming book, Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You’re Taking, the Sex You’re Not Having, The Sleep You’re Missing and What’s Really Making You Crazy. Holy long title Batman. The book examines “the pros and cons of the drugs people are being offered as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies.”

Diablo Cody who burst onto the scene with Juno will pen the script and executive produce alongside Winfrey and her Harpo Films banner. There are no specified details on when the series will enter production, but with Oprah at the helm, I would assume it’s on the top of the list for HBO.

What do you think of this collaboration? Sound off below. For more details about the project, head over to Hollywood Reporter.
