Oprah Winfrey Says She Quit “60 Minutes” After She Was Told She Was Too Emotional When Saying Her Name
When I was little I used to stumble across the Sunday night snoozefest that is 60 Minutes and wonder to myself “Who the hell watches this mess?” (And yes I said it just like that because I started cursing years before I could even ride a bike. Don’t judge me). I will admit that the only part I did enjoy watching was the late Andy Rooney being a crotchety old pepaw mad at everything. But another person who isn’t here for those sixty minutes of boredom is the Queen of Media Oprah Winfrey, who revealed that she stepped away from the program when they asked her to bring her Oprah-ness down a thousand notches while recording her voice for the show’s introduction.
If, like me, you’re concerned about the diversity of Katherine Schwarzenegger‘s friend group, you can lay your troubled mind to rest. According to People, Katherine has at least one brunette friend named Oprah Winfrey, who was one of the guests at her bridal shower that was held on Saturday. It was a ladies only affair hosted by her mom Maria Shriver at her house. But Katherine’s fiancé Chris Pratt did stop by for a toast (Martinelli’s I’m guessing. If you’re going to abstain from sex until marriage, might as well abstain from anything fun at all). Now that I think about it, Oprah’s probably Maria’s friend, which means Katherine still has an opening for a brunette (or a redhead) in her squad. Serious inquiries only.
Oprah wants us to know that even though she is a multi-billionare, she is still very much one of the people. So much so that she also complains about the price of avocados! In fact, she thinks they are so overpriced that she bought her own damn avocado orchard and now travels with her own organic avocados. Just like all of us do! Let’s all chant together: SHE’S ONE OF US!
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are not going to feed into your strange desire to see their newborn baby three seconds after the kid is pulled out of her. It was reported that Meghan was thinking about having a home birth and it looks like that’s happening. It’s also been confirmed that you will all just have to wait to see what that scrunched up, crying, lump of person looks like after it violently fights against leaving the comfort of Meghan’s womb. Because once she gives birth, Meghan has no intention of getting into hair and makeup and parading the newborn in front of you.
Go ahead and hit play on this before you proceed (you can thank/curse me later). In case you haven’t waited in line at a grocery store of late and have not seen the earth shattering news printed on the front page of People Magazine that Prince Harry and Prince William’s households will be torn asunder, then let me break it to you gently. You see, even when two princes love each other very much, they sometimes need a little space to do their own thing and become their own people. The time has come to William and Harry to see other people naked. We, well to be exact, People, call this a ROYAL RIFT.
This Sunday, HBO will raise the vomit factor by airing Leaving Neverland, the two-part documentary that tells the story of two men who claim that Michael Jackson sexually abused them as boys. That’s the same documentary that the Jackson Estate is suing over. Michael Jackson’s brothers are, I guess, doing some last-minute damage control, because they sat down with Gayle King for CBS This Morning.
