Oprah goes after Palin [Oprah]

Oprah

Oprah, whom the Hollywood Reporter just declared the most powerful woman in the universe ever, is a magnificent bitch. And I say that as someone who loves and worships and fears her. (Don’t hurt me, Oprah!)

You may recall that before the US election there was a minor kerfuffle because Obama-loving Oprah declined to have Sarah Palin on her show. At the time O graciously said she would welcome Palin after the election, but now  that’s done it turns out Palin doesn’t want to be on the stupid show anyway. Sez Oprah:

“I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over… I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn’t talk to me. But maybe she’ll talk to me now that she has a [multi-million dollar] book deal.”

Zing! PWN3D by Oprah… the worst kind of pwning.

Oprah’s dirt-cheap things [Oprah]

OprahMan, I’d be so pissed off if I were in the audience for Oprah’s Favourite Things this year and rocked up expecting to receive an extravagant haul of free stuff: this year, the talk-show queen’s gifts will all cost “next to nothing”.

Americans can’t afford sweater capes, saltwater taffy, Chinese checkers and the rest of the trendy junk that typically comprises the Favourite Things. Why? The economic crisis! This means that Oprah, whose personal worth sits at around $2.7 billion, is scaling down to things that regular folks can afford… including “a special gift that won’t cost you a thing”.

It better not be something crappy like love.

Oprah is expected to quit her talk show in 2011 and focus on her cable network. What?! But where will we find out how to be empowered women?! From Ellen?!?!

This show is madcap.

Admit it: it was kind of exciting when Jennifer Aniston announced that she’d be guest-starring on 30 Rock. So it’s hyper-ultra-ultimate-mega-exciting that Oprah fucking Winfrey is in final talks to also make an appearance in the series. Tina Fey must be bursting out of her skin, for real.

Oprah is likely to play herself in the third episode of season three; Jen will appear in episode two, playing a “Fatal Attraction-like stalker” who attaches herself to Jack. That rocks, nyuck nyuck nyuck.

Oprah: still incredibly rich [news]

Posted in comedy, news, North Americana, Oprah on August 5, 2008 by jetsamjr

Oprah raked in $385 million last year.

Woah.

Meanwhile, Charlie Sheen is TV’s highest paid comedy star even though he fronts TV’s worst comedy, earning $825,000 for every episode of Two and a Half Men. Seriously, what sort of cruel world are we living in where that sort of thing is allowed to happen?
