It’s bad enough to not get an Oscar nomination, but it’s bad enough when Oprah – of all people – comes around to rub salt in the wound and be all, “Whyyyyy didn’t you getttttt the nomin-AAAAAAA-tionnnnnn?!” OK, she wasn’t that dramatic. For once. Oprah had Bradley Cooper on for a SuperSoul Conversations event in New York City, and Oprah really just addressed the scream-singing elephant in the room by saying she was surprised Bradley wasn’t nominated for a Best Director Oscar for A Star Is Born. Rather than run off the stage sobbing, Bradley kinda shrugged and said he wasn’t surprised – just embarrassed.
Gather ’round children and let’s take a trip back in time to 2006 when Oprah Winfrey was still on TV everyday and Bush was still in office. Scratch that last part, just remember the Oprah thing. A guest named Anna Ginsberg, who won the Pillsbury Bake-Off million dollar grand prize, prepared her award winning Chicken and Spinach Stuffing and let’s just say Oprah took a bite of that mess and looked like she wished she could have spit it out. Fast forward to 2018 and the clip has resurfaced, but this time with Oprah’s real reaction.
You know Michelle “Go High” Obama has Seen. Some. Shit. Tragically for us, she’s not a petty bitch like me and and that other one, so Michelle kept things professional in her memoir Becoming, which debuts today. Michelle sat down with Oprah Winfrey for Elle Magazine to discuss her book and life after The White House. In the interview, she touched on her working class upbringing, the sacrifices her parents made, her marriage to Barack Obama, and how she’ll never forgive Donald Trump and his birtherism for putting her family at risk.
Back in the day, the best part of the holiday season wasn’t Thanksgiving or Hannukah or Christmas. It was the day on Oprah’s talk show when she released her Favorite Things list and surprised an audience of middle-aged women who lost their shit over the truckloads of free crap they were about to receive. It could have been an iPad or brownies or even a subscription to her own magazine – it didn’t matter! As long as it was free, you were guaranteed to see tears and even a few elbows to the face from audience members trying to get to their share of the pie. Even though Oprah is off the air, she still releases a list of her Favorite Things, and she just dropped the 2018 lineup. Thanks to people like Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop, Oprah’s list of must-haves almost seems down-to-Earth!
Grab your nearest box of tissues (or extra long sleeves should you be out of tissues), because the snot-crying is inevitably set to start up again. It’s been announced that the Color Purple movie musical adaptation is a sure thing. No, not the musical biopic of Prince‘s life post Purple Rain. The OTHER purple masterpiece that was a Tony award winning musical based on an Oscar nominated movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book. Are you still following? The Color Purple is now being turned into a movie based on the musical based on the movie based on the book. Oh, Hollywood- you really know how to milk a good thing when you see it!
Lindsay Lohan sat down with the New York Times to discuss her once-promising career, demise of said career, and new career of opening night clubs, such as her newest the Lohan Beach House in Mykonos. It is a LONG interview and she shits out a lot of crap. Since I’m paid to sift through it, you don’t have to completely get your eyeballs covered in bullshit while reading all of it. Continue reading
