    Associated Press ^ | January 18, 2020
    Oprah Winfrey said Friday that Russell Simmons attempted to pressure her about her involvement with a documentary in which several women detail sexual abuse allegations against the rap mogul, but his efforts were not what prompted her to leave the project. “He did reach out multiple times and attempted to pressure me,” Winfrey told The Associated Press through a spokesperson on Friday. It was not anything Simmons said that prompted Winfrey to withdraw from the “On the Record” film, according to Winfrey, but rather inconsistencies in the story of one of Simmons’ accusers, Drew Dixon, that she felt needed to...

    Professor blames Trump and racism for black women’s overweight issues A Rutgers University professor linked President Trump's policies and racism in the U.S. to African American women's obesity issues during an appearance on "Black Women OWN the Conversation” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The story: Brittney Cooper, a gender studies professor, argued that the lack of access to necessary health care and the stress black women experience because of discrimination affects their metabolism and enhances the struggles they face when trying to lose weight. “I hate when people talk about Black women being obese. I hate it because it becomes...

Faria’s own daughter, Dalva Teixeira, has also spoken out, called him a “monster” and claiming he molested her as a child. The case has...

    Entertainment mogul and part-time political activist Oprah Winfrey says the spat of mass shootings occurring in America are a result of the country’s disconnect with faith and church, which once provided people with “values about a way of living and being in the world.” Speaking with Extra host Renee Bargh about the deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio that left more than 30 people dead and dozens more injured, Oprah said “I think what people are missing is a core moral center.”

    Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson pushed back against what she described as a false narrative surrounding her, insisting that she is not a “wacky new-age nutcase.” “The establishment media sees me as a real threat to the status quo,” Williamson told Hill.TV during an interview that aired on Tuesday. “People are so invested in creating this false narrative about me as the ‘crystal lady,’ ‘wacky new-age nutcase.’ If you really think about it, I must be doing something right that they’re so scared,” she added. Williamson, a self-help author and spiritual advisor to Oprah Winfrey, insisted that the U.S. doesn’t...

    Oprah Winfrey got a "big mahalo" for opening her private road on her property in Maui to help people quickly escape a brush fire that broke out Thursday. Residents in the town of Maalaea and parts of Kihei were sent an evacuation notice on their phones, and flights to the island were diverted. "@Oprah there's a huge brush fire on Maui right now! People are trying to evacuate Kihei-my husband and son included!" one resident tweeted. "If you would kindly share the code to your gate/road, folks can evacuate through Kula." Winfrey responded that she had given immediate access to...

    OK, This week, BS "This Morning" started with their new crew. Don't ask me why (my wife) this is on in our house. Probably because we enjoy the local CBS news station in the morning for local weather and updates in our area and it gets left on. Anyway, CBS had a big shakeup due to being LAST in the morning and LAST in the evening news with Jeff Glor (Who nobody ever heard of after years) being replaced by equally vacant headed NorDUH O'Donnell. Here's my take on the new morning show. UNWATCHABLE

    Pila'a, Kauai -- Last Sunday morning, more than a dozen cars were parked along a six-foot wall built around Mark Zuckerberg's vast retreat on the northeast corner of Kauai, a small, remote Hawaiian island that's home to 70,000 people. The gate, which is almost always locked shut, was open, so you could walk right past the Facebook-blue sign that reads "PRIVATE PROPERTY Thank you for not trespassing." The lava rock wall, which Zuckerberg started building in 2016, inflamed some of his neighbors. It's built on a bluff a mile from the ocean and now stretches for nearly a mile along...

    Oprah Winfrey was likely feeling a lot lighter Tuesday evening – in her investment portfolio. After the stock of WW (formerly Weight Watchers) nosedived in after-hours trading, the wellness company’s single biggest individual investor was down anywhere from $39 million to nearly $48 million, according to reports. The stock, which was priced around $103 per share last June, sank to about $22 per share late Tuesday, reports said. The drop followed WW Chief Executive Mindy Grossman’s disclosure to analysts that WW would have fewer members in 2019 than in 2018, the New York Post reported. Grossman blamed the company’s winter...

    A woman who helped to bring down a Brazilian faith healer accused of sex abuse has taken her own life in Spain. Sabrina Bittencourt, 38, died at her home in Barcelona just days after accusing John of God - real name Joao Teixeira de Faria - of running a 'sex slave farm'.

The women would be murdered after ten years of having babies in the alleged scheme run by the 77-year-old celebrity faith healer, who was arrested last year after hundreds of...

    Sure, I know there’s more important news: thousands of barbarians at the gate, thousands of “uncounted” ballots in Florida, thousands of acres of forests consumed by fire in California. But is there anything more compelling than a little palace intrigue? Especially a little palace intrigue that involves a cat fight? No, nothing. So that’s what I’m covering today.MSM would have you believe that the reason FLOTUS called for the dismissal of Mira Ricardel, deputy national security adviser, was due to a dispute over seating arrangements on Air Force 1 for Melania’s African “Be Best” tour. More or less ignored was...

    The midterms left us with a lot of things to think about. One of the most mind-numbing was when Oprah and Obama made it pretty clear that they believe America still oppresses black people. “All of us may have been created equal,” a preachy Oprah said at her Stacey Abrams rally. “But if ya woke! If you woke; if you woke just-a lil’ bit – you got sense enough to know that everybody’s not treated equally. The reality is this: We see injustices – big and small – all around us every single day of our lives. … (A)s our...

Tomorrow show up and show out, and vote.” The robocall, apparently funded by, was sent to voters last week after...
