Eek! It is a TOUGH week to be Oprah Winfrey, folks!
She's already been injured trying to carry a large flower arrangement sent to her by Tyler Perry, has been harassed about looking "old as hell" by random Twitter users, and now, her troubled OWN network has been slapped with a lawsuit on the grounds of sex and disability discrimination, failure to prevent discrimination, retaliation and willful failure to pay wages upon discharge or termination!
According to legal documents, filed Friday in the El Lay Superior Court, Carolyn Hommel asserts that she was originally hired as senior director of scheduling and acquisitions back in 2010, and during her time at the company, co-owned by Discovery Communications, she was considered a valuable employee and even expected to become a vice president!
All of that changed, however, when

Oh, but good news! The good pastor says despite being sinners, the gays will be welcomed into heaven with open arms … once they admit fault for their "sin," of course.
What a guy, huh? Such understanding.
On Sunday night's episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, The Big O sat down for a controversial interview with Pastor Joel Osteen. You might know him best as the guy who packs stadiums (not churches — stadiums), with people who come to listen to his uplifting messages of faith and hope. Joel has made quite a name — and quite a fortune — out of being a "positive" force and voice for Christianity, but leave it to Oprah to find the loop hole in his belief system.
During her interview, she

Guess that's another benefit of being one of Oprah's BFFs!
Dr. Mehmet Oz is the very FIRST man to be featured on the cover of The Oprah Magazine.
The Big O admits to sources that she adores "America's doctor" and chose him for the cover of the January issue to coincide with the latest edition's theme of "firsts", explaining:

We're days away from the big opening day for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and as we inch closer and closer, we're getting more little sneak peeks from Summit of what is to come.
Today, the producers are letting Twi-hards eat cake by sharing the first, full-length still of Bella & Edwards wedding cake.
Looks scrumptious! And we love all the flowers!
