Arsenio Hall And Oprah Set The Record Straight On Their '90s 'Feud' (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Arsenio Hall says he's an "infotainment guy." His late-night stand-up routine, which pokes fun at the day's headlines, is a big part of "The Arsenio Hall Show" –- both now and when his show originally came on the air in 1989. More than 20 years ago, Hall and Oprah had a reported feud over one of Hall's jokes. During his appearance on "Oprah's Next Chapter," the two clear up exactly what happened. Hall says he once made a joke about the 1988 episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" when Oprah wheeled a wagon filled with 67 pounds of animal fat onstage to show how much weight she had lost. In the joke, Hall says, "There are probably people in Utah saying, 'Who is he?' Remember all that weight Oprah lost? Old Oprah meat, that's me." "It's kind of a silly joke," he says now. But that harmless joke wasn't what caused Oprah to cancel one of her appearances on "The Arsenio Hall Show." "You were mad at me because I did a Stedman joke," Hall recalls, referring to Stedman Graham, Oprah's ...

Pat Gallagher: 12 Post 50 Celebs Who Have Never Married
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Back in the day when some of us were wearing petticoats, circle pins and saddle shoes, marriage was almost a rite of passage for young women. If a girl didn't have "a ring on it" by the time she was in her early 20s, the term "old maid" came into play. In 2013, not so much. Marriage is now -- thankfully -- a choice. Since the beginning of time, it seems men have never felt the pinch to get married unless encouraged by the sweet young thing he was dating or by the sweet young thing's anxious father after finding out there was a bun in the oven (thus the term "shotgun wedding" became the popular slang... so glad those days are over!). Happily, marriage works for millions of couples, but people who make the choice never to marry are the bold men and women who don't give a happy hoot what other people think. So The Huffington Post is happy to run down the list of some of our favorite celebrities who stand by their convictions that marriage is an option... and thus, have chosen ...

These Celebrity Women Earn More Than Their Men
Business Insider - almost 5 years
Hollywood is on a different pay scale than the majority of Americans, but even celebrity couples usually designate a "bread winner." When the high earner of a duo happens to be the woman, it's something to take note of. The Forbes Most Powerful Celebrities list reveals that only 11 of the top 50 celebrity earners are female, and of that small number, about half were in a committed relationship at the time of this writing. In spite of the rarity of l ong-term couplings where the lady makes the most, here are a handful of Hollywood power pairs doing just that. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale While most remember Gwen as the super-cute front woman for '90s hit band No Doubt, her influence in pop culture has grown to incorporate fashion, accessories and must-have gear for the kid crowd. Her latest line of clothing, Harajuku Mini, is a big boon for Target retailers. While Gwen's earnings aren't as public as some of the more notable celebs, her time in the limelight has given her mor ...

Oprah Winfrey Offers $100 Million Prenup To Stedman Graham
The Inquisitor - almost 5 years
Oprah Winfrey has offered her longtime man, Stedman Graham, a $100 million prenuptial agreement which would entice almost any man under such gracious circumstances.  While it appears as if Oprah might actually be getting married, National Enquirer reports that Oprah insiders insist she’s “pulling a Kardashian,” a reference to Kim Kardashian‘s allegedly staged wedding to NBA star Kris Humphries back in 2011.  Kim’s marriage lasted a mere 72-days. Insiders claim that Oprah is staging the wedding in an attempt to bolster her struggling television network which has been steadily declining since it was launched back in the beginning of 2011.  Financial analyst predictions indicate that OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, could lose as much as $140 million this year, if not more. According to a television industry insider familiar with the situation, Oprah has finally realized that the shows she worked hard to create are not attracting viewers as intended as it’s Winfrey herself who has trul ...
