Media maven Oprah Winfrey
is all smiles in the November edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
In the article, Winfrey, who was shot by photographer Terry Richardson, discusses her decision to take on her OWN network.

Regarding her life changing career move, Miss O drops another classic “Oprah-ism” and states:
“When you have reached the peak of a mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries,” she explains of the ambitious undertaking.
“I’d been in the right space at the right time, and I’d done that in the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: You can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there, or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain, and start the climb all over again.”

Just last year it was revealed that Tyler Perry would soon be getting his own television network…

Apparently we got things mixed up… instead of launching his own network, Perry will be partnering with the OWN network, Oprah Winfrey’s cable network.
Perry has been plagued with unexplained fires in his Atlanta studio and Winfrey has been fighting for viewers to her network by interviewing artists she normally wouldn’t.
The two power players have now put their heads together to form a solid plan for an enlightening cable network.
OWN announced earlier today (Monday, October 1, 2012) that they have formed an exclusive partnership with Tyler Perry and Perry also announced the deal to his fans via his email distribution list. Continue Reading…
Usher Raymond appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night, where he spoke about his divorce from ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond and their long drawn out custody battle.

The pair met at Raymond’s Atlanta estate where he’s built a huge playground complete with tree house for his two sons. He joked to Oprah that he invited her because he wanted her to see his “crib,” but the interview was clearly a bit of PR crisis management and who else to call to clean up your image except “Mother O”?
As expected, Usher touched on a few of the things I’d already told you about… like his cheating on his ex-wife Tameka with one of her bridesmaids (click HERE to meet Maya Fox-Davis) and that bizarre Berlin incident where he stomped off the stage (click HERE if you missed that).

Sultry songstress Rihanna was the next popular person on Oprah‘s to-do list for her “Next Chapter” series, which aired last night (August 19, 2012) on The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).
The 24-year-old performer spoke with the media mogul while giving her a tour of her hometown in Barbados.
Rihanna spoke of her loves for abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, although she never admitted that the two are still seeing each other in secret.
“We love each other and we probably always will, and that’s not anything that we’re going to try to change,” Rihanna told Oprah. She confessed that it’s hard to see him:
“It’s awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain that and suppress it.”

Oprah Winfrey has sparked a ton of controversy with her latest “Oprah’s Next Chapter” segment.
Things didn’t go so well when the media mogul was in India a few months back taping the show, and now that it’s aired, she reportedly has the entire South Asian country up in arms.

The people of India are offended at how Miss O. portrayed the country and it’s residents on the show:
The smell of incense (tick), the sari fitting (tick), the aspirations of slum dwellers (tick), and the glitz of Bollywood (tick). Let’s not forget arranged marriages and the fact that Indians, even rich ones, “still” eat with their hands (tick, tick).
India as Westerners imagine it, one stereotype at a time.
Not good… not good at all!
