BTWF: Oprah Winfrey hosting AM Chicago
March 20th, 2024 under Before They Were Famous, Oprah Winfrey. [ Comments: none ]

Before Oprah Winfrey had her own national talk show, she had hosted AM Chicago. She looks younger now than she did when she was 30 in that 1984 promo.


Why does Oprah Winfrey keep an octopus in her fridge?
March 18th, 2024 under Jimmy Kimmel, Oprah Winfrey. [ Comments: none ]

Oprah Winfrey was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and he wanted to clear up some of the rumors about her.

He wanted to know things like will her dogs inherit $30 million and whether they will be able to piss on her grave, which will be under an oak tree on her Montecito property. The dogs are not getting that much money. As for the oak tree, it fell down during a storm, so she needs a new place to spend eternity.

If you think that is wild, wait until you hear what she bought Stevie Wonder as a present for singing at her 50th birthday party. She got the blind singer a Mercedes Maybach. Knowing him, he probably has driven it for fun.

And the strangest rumor that you would never believe is true is that she keeps an octopus in her fridge almost all of the time. Why? Her boyfriend Steadman loves to eat it for breakfast every day.

He doesn’t eat the octopus alone. He eats it with okra. So, Kimmel told Oprah, “He loves things that start with O.” And she laughed harder than I ever heard laugh!

Now, back to her answers. The rich definitely live differently than us.


Richard Simmons reveals why Oprah Winfrey stopped booking him

Oprah Winfrey used to have Richard Simmons on her show all the time, but then she stopped. Today, The Weight Guru explained what went wrong.

I have a little lump in my throat as I write this. She is one of the most powerful and adored women. She is the queen of TV…an actress…producer…a book writer… and a lecturer. When she talks, everyone listens. She has billions of followers. All you have to think of is her first name. I am speaking about Oprah.

In the 80s, she flew me out to Baltimore, Maryland to do her local talk show. She greeted me with a smile and a hug. She dressed so beautifully. She was a fashionista. I still remember a long colorful silk scarf that draped around her upper body and tied on her shoulder. When I told her my story, she was interested and showed her happiness for me.

Later when she moved to Chicago, she had me on again. Again only kindness emanated from her. I watched her show every day. She could interview anybody and her audience adored her. When she walked on stage the audience went crazy.

One day she walked out pulling a red wagon …and in the wagon was some kind of lard or fat representing the amount of weight that she lost. Oprah wore a turtleneck and a pair of jeans. She radiated light.

I was coming out of a studio where I met a national gossip columnist named Cindy Adams. She was petite with perfect make up and coiffed hair. She asked me “what do you think of Oprah’s weight loss?” I replied “as long as Oprah exercises and eats healthy she will be fine.”

The next day she wrote a column and the headline was Richard Simmons thinks Oprah will gain all of her weight back and some. I never said that. She made it up to sell newspapers. I forgave Cindy because that is the kind of person that I am.

When Oprah read this I was erased from her life. I was never asked to be on her show again. She never ever forgave me for something I did not say.

I still respect Oprah. Her heart is filled with helping people just like me. I still remember the two times I did her show. I never talked to a gossip columnist again. The world is a better place because of Oprah.

I hope someone tells Mrs. O about this post, and she forgives him. Because if anyone could get him out of hiding. It is her.


Oprah Winfrey is all of us with Lenny Kravitz

Oprah Winfrey went to the Grammys on Sunday for the first time, and she ran into her old friend Lenny Kravitz.

And boy, was she happy to see him. I don’t remember ever seeing her smiling as big as she is here. But then again, who wouldn’t be grinning ear to ear seeing the singer?


Oprah Winfrey is done with the color purple

Believe it or not. Yesterday was the first time that Oprah Winfrey attended the Grammy Awards in her nearly 50-year career.

She was there to honor the late Tina Turner, who passed away in May.

Lady O said she honored her friend by pulling out a “vintage Valentino out of my closet to pay homage to her many famous short skirts!

And with the LBD, Oprah was done with the color purple, which she wore to several public events to promote the movie.

No matter what color she wears, the 70-year-old looks fantastic and happy. And you never fully dressed without a smile.
