2014-most-fascinating-people-list

You can’t keep a good bitch down ;) Although she proclaimed last year’s Most Fascinating People special was the last, Barbara Walters returns to ABC this Winter with a 2014 edition.

While I enjoy the special, I thought last year’s supposed final list was fitting. Walters began the annual telecast years ago with Hillary Rodham Clinton as her ‘Most Fascinating Person.’ Fittingly, Barbara chose the former First Lady as her last. I’m sensing that the legendary 85-year-old journalist’s retirement will echo Cher’s numerous farewell tours ;)

ABC has already released some names who’ve made the 2014 list. Find out who made the cut below.

raven-symone-oprah-lesbian

Last year, Raven-Symone seemingly came out by tweeting, “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you” after the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act. It wasn’t a full-out lesbian declaration but seemed to address all the rumors. In an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey for Where Are They Now?, the 28-year-old opens up about her sexuality and her views on race.

“I’m tired of being labeled,” she said. “I’m an American. I’m not an African American; I’m an American… I mean, I don’t know where my roots go to. I don’t know how far back they go… I don’t know what country in Africa I’m from, but I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I’m an American. And that’s a colorless person.”

Winfrey even gives her a warning after some of her declarations. “Oh girl, don’t set the Twitter on fire,” Oprah says. “You are going to get a lot of flack for saying you’re not African-American. You know that, right?” Watch the clip below where Raven briefly recognizes her relationship with a former ANTM contestant and further clarifies her stance on ‘labels.’

When did Oprah Winfrey become the official designate to officiate grand farewells? Earlier this year, she headlined a random star-studded line-up to bid adieu to Jay Leno. Today she popped up on The View to say goodbye to her idol Barbara Walters for the legendary journalist’s last day on the ABC daytime chatfest. If you thought yesterday’s show featuring every View co-host was epic, wait til you see this.

Winfrey wasn’t the only one inspired by Walters’ trailblazing career. Practically every notable female reporter on television today echoes that sentiment. Among the women who showed up to pay tribute to Barbara were Diane Sawyer, Connie Chung, Katie Couric, Robin Roberts, Jane Pauley and countless others. Listing them all off would take too much time. As Walters stated herself, these women are her legacy. Well said. Check out the touching moment below.

Nate Berkus certainly lives by the mantra, ‘go big or go home.’ The celebrity interior designer popped the big question to his fiance Jeremiah Brent atop Machu Picchu last year. He followed that up by tying the knot at the New York City Public Library. They’re the first gay couple to do so at the NYC landmark. If you’re a Sex and the City fan you’ll remember this is the location where Mr. Big stood up Carrie at the altar during the first feature film.

Anyone else watching Lindsay on OWN? It’s not the most exciting reality show in the world, but I’m enjoying it. Although not completely 100 percent committed, I feel Lindsay Lohan is taking steps (albeit baby ones) to getting her life and career back on track. It doesn’t hurt to have Oprah Winfrey on your side.

“I think she’s doing really OK, I think to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you’re trying to pull your life together, I think that’s a really difficult thing,” said Oprah.

Speaking of O, Lohan decided it would be a good idea to call her “mentor” during an interview with David Letterman. Upon the urging of the audience, the Late Show host caved in. He pretended to be Lilo’s secretary when Winfrey picked up. Although Oprah never lost her cool, you can tell she was uneasy at first on not knowing who was on the line. Check out the humorous segment below which airs tonight on CBS.

oprah-winfrey-tour

This Fall, Oprah Winfrey embarks on an eight-city arena tour for a “transformational weekend.” Dubbed “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend,” each tour stop will span two days. On Friday night, the 60-year-old will take the stage and on the following day she’ll lead a day-long gathering with pals including Iyanla Vanzant, Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert and Pastor Rob Bell. Deepak Chopra will reportedly take the stage during select stops.

“All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space,” says Oprah in the announcement release. “I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it.”

After conducing a speaking circuit in Canada in early 2013, Winfrey revealed a domestic tour on a larger scale was atop her bucket list. Tickets start at $99 and top out at $999 for VIP packages which reportedly includes a meeting with Miss O herself.

“It’s about living the life you want, because a great percentage of the population is living a life that their mother wanted, that their husband wanted, that they thought or heard they wanted,” says Winfrey to the Hollywood Reporter, adding that she will use the platform to push themes of “empowerment, resilience and authenticity.”

The highly-anticipated Lindsay reality show finally premieres this Sunday, March 9 on OWN. I have to admit, I can’t wait. At this point, I’m really rooting for Lilo to finally get her act together and take her career seriously. If Oprah Winfrey can’t put her back on track, no one will. “You need to cut the bullsh*t, you really do,” admonishes the media mogul after producers complain of the 27-year-old’s no-shows and erratic behavior.

The documentary series follows media sensation Lindsay Lohan on her journey through recovery following a very public period of crisis. It promises to give an honest, no-holds-barred account, intimate and unflinching look into the life of the Mean Girls actress.

Cameras follow Lindsay as she returns to New York, reunites with friends and family, and attempts to build a new life. As she works to stay on track amid the demands (and pitfalls) of fame, she opens up as never before, discussing everything from her emotional recovery process to her exhausting run-ins with the paparazzi. Check out the first official trailer for the Amy Rice-directed docu-series below.

oprah-winfrey-broadway-debut

The elusive Oscar acting statue she desperately wants slipped through her fingers a few weeks ago when the Academy snubbed Oprah Winfrey for her performance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Perhaps, a Tony is more in line with her stars.

The 60-year-old is heading to the Great White Way once again. She co-produced The Color Purple Broadway production back in 2005. This time, she’ll step from behind the scenes and stand front and center.

Reportedly, Winfrey is set to make her Broadway acting debut in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Night, Mother. It is believed that she read for the part at producer Scott Sanders’ apartment with Audra McDonald, who was most recently seen in NBC’s Sound of Music live telecast. Winfrey will play the mother to McDonald’s suicidal depressed daughter. Broadway veteran George C. Wolfe is expected to direct.

Do you think Winfrey has a shot at a Tony? Do you think the Academy rightfully snubbed Oprah? Weigh in below.
