Oprah Opens Up.

In what has become a very competitive week of morning television, Oprah Winfrey went on CBS this Morning today to speak about the struggling OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network.) Here’s some significant quotes from the interview. (Scroll down for the video!)

Would she do this all over again?

“Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else … I didn’t think it was going to be easy. But if I knew then, what I know now I would have made some different choices.”

The biggest mistake:

“If I were writing a book about it I could call the book 101 Mistakes. …Launching when we we really weren’t ready to launch, and doing that because you’d announced that you were going to do it. It is like having the wedding when you know you’re not ready and you’re walking down the aisle and you’re saying ‘uh, I don’t know if we should be walking down the aisle, maybe we should have postponed this’ … but now it’s really Monday morning quarterbacking.

On success and failure:

“I’ve lived in this sort of glow for the past – I would say ten years at least because the climb up was also not as easy as everybody remembers. But last week I saw one headline that really sort of knocked me off cnter. I was the USA Today headline that said “Oprah Not Quire Standing On Her OWN‘ …and it just did (pantomimes sticking a knife in her chest) UUuhhhhhhh…”

On why she won’t quit:

“I believe that I am here to fulfill a calling… because I am a female who is African American who has been so blessed in the world – there is never going tobe a time to quit. I will die in the midst of doing what I love to do and that is using my voice and using my life to try to inspire people and to live the best of theirs.”

Looking ahead:

“Because you failed at something - which we haven’t failed – but because you failed does not make you a failure.  And when you know that in the core of yourself you can keep trying, or you can use whatever is happening in that moment to say ‘maybe I need to move in a new direction.'”

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
