Now I know some of you dislike the Kardashians so I am much more selective about what I post about them. Well, in this preview for Oprah’s interview with the entire Kardashian family, she absolutely does not hold back. I freaking love her.
Mamma O asks if Kim Kardashian would be where she is today without the sex tape, how she feels when people say her last marriage was a stunt, and much more. She even asks Kris Jenner if there ever was a point where she asked herself, “Am I pimping my kids?” LOL. Yes, she went there. She also asks, “How much of it is real?”
Towards the end of the preview, we see Oprah asking the gang, “You think you’re famous for… what?” These are tough questions for them and I’m glad she didn’t hold back! I’m actually very curious to see how they answer these questions and how honest and genuine their answers seem. Check out the preview below to see for yourself and be sure to tune into Oprah’s Next Chapter this Sunday to see it all go down.
In the most recent episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, Mamma O takes her crew to the home of Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka to get to know the couple more, hear about life with their twins and their decision to have children, and much more.
It was actually a great interview and it seemed that pretty much everything was on the table. Sitting outside in the backyard by the pool, they touched upon when they knew they were gay, how they will explain it to their children, and which one of them is more maternal. Neil Patrick Harris even gave Oprah Winfrey an “Aha Moment” when he explained how being a same sex couple and having a baby, you are really going out of your way to have a baby because you really want it and there is so much love awaiting the child or children. I can relate to this recently finding out I was adopted. I had the same feeling, realizing what my parents had to do to get me.
Watch several clips from the episode below.
Forbes Magazine has just revealed their “Celebrity 100” list for this year, revealing a new number one celebrity for 2012. The magazine looks at various factors when classifying the celebs, including: Wealth, TV/Radio ranking, Press ranking, Web ranking, and Social ranking.
The person who topped this list year is involved in many areas of the business and despite the image above, it’s not Justin Bieber nor is it Oprah Winfrey. I’m not surprised to see this person on the list, but I must say I’m a little surprised to see them at number one. Last year, Gaga topped the list with Oprah trailing behind in second. This year, the Top 10 list is quite different, but Oprah finds herself at number two once again.
Check out the Top 10 list below to find out who tops the list this year.
I feel like I’ve been watching and writing a lot about Oprah Winfrey lately which isn’t a bad thing I guess… I could be writing about Kim Kardashian, right? Anyway, Oprah has just launched a campaign called “Oprah’s Thank You Game” and before you ask…. no one get’s a car. Oprah’s mission is for half a billion people to get thanked (no, not spanked – that’s a different game).
It’s all about gratitude. Oprah explains, “Gratitude doesn’t just feel good. When you come from a place of thanks, you see the world in you. Gratitude even changes your brain and you’re better able to see the good in other people.” To track the progress, when you’ve thanked someone, you’re supposed to click the “I Said Thank You” button on Oprah.com or on her Facebook page.
Watch the video below to learn more about what her mission is with this game and how you can get involved. While I’m at it, thank you for reading this post and for coming to Homorazzi.com. We actually had a record month in terms of vistors in April and of course we could not have done it without our loyal readers. So THANK YOU!
I am willing to put it in writing that Oprah’s Lifeclass truly changed my life. It has been over a week since I attended Oprah’s Lifeclass the Tour in Toronto (which airs tonight), and I’m still experiencing the emotions I felt as the legendary talk show host walked out on the stage, a mere fifteen rows away from my Mom and I. But let me start at the beginning of this story.
On February 28, I received an email from Oprah’s Lifeclass announcing that Oprah herself would be taking her classroom on the road, making stops in St. Louis, New York and Toronto. I couldn’t believe my eyes, or my odds, as I might actually get a chance to see Oprah live in person after all – a dream I have wished for years, and one my mother has been dreaming of since the first day Oprah Winfrey’s talk show was broadcast in Canada. I was shaking when I saw there were tickets available, and after a quick call to my Dad and sister, we decided it was time to make my Mom’s dreams finally come true.
Less than two months later we were flying to Toronto and finding our place in line next to the rest of the 9,500 people who also had tickets. We honestly lined up at 10am for a show that was to begin at 4pm, as tickets for the four different assigned sections were still general seating once you made your way to your specific section. Needless to say it was pandemonium as every woman and man dashed for the best seats possible, as we all wanted to be as close as possible to Oprah. We were lucky enough to snag seats in the fifteenth row, next to some amazing girls that we had met while waiting (somewhat patiently) for the Toronto Convention Centre to let us in to the seating and stage area. The setup was breathtaking.
Last night, Oprah’s Lifeclass aired a special taped at Radio City Music Hall in New York where Oprah Winfrey sat down with Deepak Chopra to talk about “Spiritual Solutions“. She jokingly referred to it as her “Chopra Oprah Tour”. I watched the segment on the online feed and thought I’d share a few of the highlights. Before I get into that, I want to mentioned that cast member Dan went to the taping in Toronto, which is the finale for the Lifeclass Tour and airs next Monday. The topic discussed is “Mastering the Art of Gratitude“.
I’ve included many of the quotes that resonated with me below, but I also want to talk about Perez Hilton being on the show. He talked about how he has changed and is now about putting positivity out there, helping people, and most certainly not being the bully he once was. He’s changed so much (inside and out). That being said, a women in the audience had a hard time with him being where he is today only because he had became famous for being mean.
Deepak and Oprah had a few things to say about that. Deepak responded by saying, Deepak: “I think what you’ve got to realize…everyone is doing best they can from the stage of awareness they’re in. You have to have empathy….because in your judging him, you’re also judging yourself. And right now I’m judging you.” Oprah added, “I could be very pissed off at [Perez] for some of the things he has said. But if he can’t be redeemed, then neither can I….Not everybody is operating at the same frequency as you. There are some very low-level people that are barely vibrating at all….There is a vibrational frequency to spirit.”
As you probably already know, OWN has canceled The Rosie Show, with the final episode being taped today and airing this coming Friday, March 30.
Of course at the end of the day it all comes down to business. When it debuted, the show started off a certain way, closer to what she had done in the past. They then switched gears and tried the one-on-one instead. I personally loved the new format. The deep discussions that Rosie got into with her guests was always so interesting. It’s a shame that the show got canceled when it was starting to head into the right direction.
Check out what Rosie had to say about the show being canceled below. Is she bitter? Is she at peace with the decision? Find out how she’s feeling about everything in the clip below.
As I had previously informed you about, yesterday Oprah’s interview with Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta aired on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’. During the interview, Gaga said to Oprah, “Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time. No press, no television.” I actually think that’s a good idea. Take a break, girl.
Gaga talked about everything from how her mother feels about her language and her crazy shows to if she wants marriage and children, and much more. “Yes, I want kids. I want a soccer team, and I want a husband.”
She even discussed the difficulties she’s had with dating. “I have struggled with that for a long time with dating. They want to know the real me. I’m sitting right here. When the spotlight’s not on me, I sometimes don’t know who I am because I feel alive on the stage. And that’s what Jo really was all about. If I had to do a performance art piece, confess who I truly am, that is my way.” With “Jo,” she was referring to when she dressed up as a man whom she called Jo Calderone. Check out the full episode (broken up into 8 segments below.
