Winfrey reflects on her legendary past in the January 2014 issue of O magazine where she rocks a gorgeous gold gown for the Ruven Afanador-shot spread.
The 59 year-old talk show host opens up about her experiences over the years and chats about how she stays positive.
I’m alive. Healthy. Strong. I’m turning 60.
And – please don’t take offense – I no longer have to be concerned about what anyone thinks of me! I’m turning 60, and I’ve earned the right to be just as I am. I’m more secure in being myself than I’ve ever been.
Oprah looks amazing to hitting that 60 year mark! Is 60 the new 40?

Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been rising above all drama on the popular reality show, but that doesn’t mean she’s not above stirring the pot this season.

Leakes brought her friends Chuck & Mynique Smith onto the show week and immediately got the Smith’s caught up in a bit of RHOA he say/she say about Chuck’s dating history with at least two members of the cast, Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss.

Leakes was quick to point out that she, Phaedra and Smith all went to the same high school in Athens (but she didn’t know Phaedra growing up, remember?), and that she’d ‘HEARD’ that Parks was a ‘head doctor’ in high school.
While I’ve heard she apologized to Phaedra about the statement, the implications are hard to ignore. Whatever the case, Nene felt the need to clarify her statement and while it’s clear, she’s caught in a lie, I guess I’ll give Nene an “A” for effort for standing in her sh*t.
