If you were hoping to have Senator Oprah as your local representative, you’ll have to keep praying to God (aka Oprah) to make that wish come true. Oprah Winfrey isn’t joining Congress and saving the country from disaster as it was speculated. California Senator Dianne Feinstein is set to turn 90 this year and people are saying that maaaaaaaaaaaybe she should retire. Well, come hell or hospitalization, Dianne plans to stick around so Oprah won’t be moving in anytime soon even if she wanted to!
If you ever needed a real-time definition of The Waiting Game, then look no further than long-standing California senator Dianne Feinstein and the nucleus of folks waiting for her to step down. Dianne, who will be turning 90 this year, has encountered a few health issues, and everyone around her is awaiting the day she says, “I quit this bitch!” before retiring from her seat. However, she’s a stubborn old broad, and will not go quietly into the night. But when she does finally step down, provisions have been made for a Black woman to replace her. And one Black woman whose name has been tossed around is none other than Oprah Winfrey, who has vaguely stated her political aspirations in the past. But will Dianne’s retirement be the beginning of Oprah’s political origin story?
Nathan Lane Says His “Birdcage” Co-Star Robin Williams “Protected” Him From Coming Out On “Oprah” In 1996
Nathan Lane is back on Broadway in the play Pictures from Home, so he went on Sunday Today to promote that shit and discuss his career. Variety reports that 67-year-old Nathan got to talkin’ about starring in the 1996 classic, The Birdcage, with the late great Robin Williams. At the time, Nathan was mostly known for his stage roles and voicing Timon in The Lion King (1994). The Birdcage was his first big live-action role. And even though he’d come out as gay at age 21, he didn’t feel ready to share that fact with the world. Luckily, Nathan was protected by Robin, who he calls “a saint.” Nathan says that when the pair went on Oprah together, Robin did everything in his power to distract Oprah from pulling his co-star out of the closet on TV. Hey, if anybody’s great at distracting people with bonkers non sequiturs, it’s Robin Williams. Continue reading
Now that Mo’Nique has disembarked from her cruise aboard the SS Blackballed she is finally in the spotlight again and laughing all the way to the bank. And it comes after years of contention between her, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, and Lee Daniels. Mo’ and Lee made up last year, but Tyler and Oprah are still side-eyeing her with binoculars atop their stories-high piles of cash. And Mo’ is still waiting for them to apologize, but hopefully, she’s not holding her breath while waiting because she will surely suffocate.
When you’re as rich as Oprah Winfrey, you tend to forget that purchasing diamond-encrusted toothpicks for your favorite folks during the holidays isn’t necessarily a normal thing. And while hiding her eyes behind a pair of sunglasses that probably cost more than what we have in our savings accounts she was reminded of this fact after a video went viral on Tik Tok when TMZ’s Colin Drummond asked what gift he should give his ailing mother. Oprah countered with a gift that was in the $100 range, and when Colin informed her that was too much, the look of horror on her face basically screamed, “If you ain’t got no money take your broke ass HOME!”
Oprah Endorsed Dr. Oz’s Opponent For A Pennsylvania Senate Seat, John Fetterman, And Many Other Democrats In Close State Races
Oprah Winfrey decided it was high time to make an attempt at counterbalancing the scourge she unleashed on society by bestowing a talk show upon Dr. Mehmet Oz, who finally just took his poop diagrams and garcinia cambogia and fucked off of our screens in January after a long 13 seasons of quackery on The Dr. Oz Show. Unfortunately, that allowed him to pivot to politics, as he’s now running as a Donald Trump-backed Republican for a Pennsylvania senate seat–though whether or not he actually lives in Pennsylvania is questionable (just ask Snooki). With election day coming up in just a few days, Oprah endorsed expert Oz-troller and current Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor, John Fetterman, in PA’s neck-and-neck race for a senate seat over Oz, a former surgeon who’s relentlessly criticized John’s ability to handle the duties of office after recently suffering a stroke. She also voiced her support for several other Democrats running in tight races in key states hoping to maintain their slender Senate majority.
