Me, Mom and Oprah at the Live Your Best Life Weekend

This year for her birthday, my mother didn't get a card, a gift or even dinner out. She got Oprah. Last weekend was the 10th anniversary of O magazine, and to celebrate, Oprah threw a big party in New York called the Live Your Best Life Weekend, with talks by Suze Orman, Donna Brazile, Nate Berkus, Dr. Oz, Martha Beck and other writers from O magazine -- plus Oprah herself, of course. ...more

What Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi Taught me About Same-Sex Marriage

Disclaimer: I'm not a lesbian and I will never be one. I've always respected the sexual orientation of others, though. In my freshperson year at Dillard University, I had to write an argumentative essay on same-sex adoption. Even though most of my classmates were against it, I was for it.

Oprah Pulls The Plug On "The Oprah Winfrey Show"

Since yesterday, we knew the official public announcement was coming and today we got it.  Oprah Winfrey announced on a live broadcast that she will end  "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2011 after 25 years. After much prayer and months' of careful thought, I've decided next season, season 25, will be the last season of "The Oprah Winfrey Show. With those words, the most powerful woman in television shook up not only the daytime TV world, but the TV world as a whole. ...more

The Oprah Winfrey Show - [BEYOND] The Diane Schuler Story

I watched the titled Oprah show, yesterday, and was struck on so many, many fronts, but the two I'm going to talk about in this post have nothing to do with the Diane Schuler Story. They relate to the portions of the show that followed that segment....more
