    Oprah wants to head to Broadway

    Now that Oprah’s conquered the screen, both big and little, she’s ready to rule the stage again.

    On Friday’s episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" she told Chris Rock, who was promoting his play titled The Motherf*cker With The Hat, that acting on Broadway is "the one thing I want to do."

    Chris encouraged her theatrical ambitions, stating that it would be a life-changing experience. "I’m telling you, you will be a different person," he said.

    "Well, we gotta find a play," Oprah said. "That’s my dream." This wouldn’t be her first foray into theater. Oprah brought The Color Purple to The Great White Way as a musical in 2005.

    “Take a good look at the photo of me on this album; this is how you’re supposed to look when you’re a woman falling out of love.  Don’t sit by the phone waiting for him to call you, girlfriend; I want you to listen very closely to the lyrics of the songs on this album and you’ll hear a few good tips. Go out and have a ball!”



    The Manzos (and more) are back!


    “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns to Bravo on Monday, May 16.

    It looks like Danielle Staub, the housewife all of New Jersey loved to hate, won’t be returning.

    In her place are two new housewives, Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga, and of course, the Manzo women are back.

    A lack of Danielle doesn’t necessarily mean a lack of drama. Take a look at the preview.
