    Cops grilled the son of Oprah Winfrey’s celebrity jeweler Wednesday after digging up the body of a slain Connecticut man last seen alive at the suspect’s Manhattan home. The bloody corpse of Joseph Comunale, 26, was driven from the East Side to a desolate stretch of the Jersey Shore — and buried in a shallow grave behind a flower shop, the sources told the Daily News. While no arrests have been made, sources said cops were looking at James Rackover — the son of jeweler to the stars Jeffrey Rackover, whose A-list clients include Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez and Denzel Washington.

    Oprah Winfrey may have shed some pounds using Weight Watchers. But she may have lost something else -- influence. And money. Shares of Weight Watchers (WTW) plunged nearly 30% Friday after the diet company reported a surprise $11 million quarterly loss. The company's sales fell and, most alarmingly, so did the number of Weight Watchers subscribers and attendance at meetings. Shares of Weight Watchers surged in October after Oprah announced she was taking a 10% stake in the company, joining its board and becoming a member as well. The hope was that Oprah's blessing would lead to a surge in...

    The Paris terrorist attacks bring to mind the frightening case of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) operative arrested in Chicago last fall and released earlier this year to serve probation in Illinois for a state crime that secretly drew federal intervention. His name is Emad Karakrah, the ringleader of a sophisticated narco-terror operation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) facilitated his release from Cook County Jail in January. Judicial Watch uncovered Karakrah's terrorism record and has reported extensively on his extremist activities, including a 2009 plot to bomb talk-show host Oprah Winfrey's Chicago studios and the...

    Nelson Mandela at the Communist Party’s first public meeting in post-apartheid South Africa, 1990. You're not supposed to speak ill of the dead, so I figured I'd get a head start.One of the landmark events of my Gen X youth was the 11-hour, internationally televised “Free Nelson Mandela” concert in 1988. Because, come on: how could you not be anti-apartheid? It was a no-brainer, risk-free cause, the type you could support without having to think about it too much or inviting unpopularity or controversy, right? Actually, no. Lots of big-name musicians who now boast of being on that concert roster...

    The star of TV's The Cosby Show and That's So Raven sat down with Oprah Winfrey and attempted to clarify the misconceptions about who she is. One of the topics the women addressed occurred in August 2013, when the Supreme Court ruled that the ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. At the time, she tweeted, "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." Many people saw it as her way of publicly coming out. Asked to explain, Raven replied, "That was my way of saying I'm proud of the country. But, I will say that I'm in...

    The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced on Wednesday that it had purchased the rights to a documentary series that will follow the life of Michael Sam. Terms were undisclosed, but sources said that negotiations to make the deal took two months. Sam became the first openly gay man to be taken in the NFL draft when he was picked Saturday in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. Cameras for the network were with Sam when he received the call that he was drafted and will follow him through training camp as he tries to make the team. The...

    At the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony held in the East Room of the White House, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama chose to honor more than just a few 'winners.' The colorful collection was a cacophony of politically correct Democrat darlings, with a journalist, a RINO, two deceased homosexuals, a few Latinos, and an occasional black sports figure thrown in for good measure. In addition to the eclectic array of 13 relatively benign forgers of freedom, three controversial awards also went to a race-baiting billionaire, a misogynist former president, and an abortion-supporting, man-hating women's rights activist. It...

    As the White House was gearing up to sell ObamaCare to the American people last summer, Valerie Jarrett, the president’s pointwoman on a host of issues, phoned Oprah Winfrey. She invited the Queen of All Media to join celebrities, including Amy Poehler, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys, to meet with President Obama and discuss how they could generate publicity for his health-care law. Oprah refused. Obama had been counting on Oprah’s immense persuasive powers to help enroll millions in ObamaCare. But as the rollout turned into a disaster, Oprah didn’t lift a finger to help.

    The White House announced that President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, to 16 recipients including television star and businesswoman Oprah Winfrey, legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and former President Bill Clinton. “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours,” Mr. Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world.” Mr. Obama will award the medals...

    That's a lie, the anonymous sales clerk says according to the UK Daily Mail, adding she's felt "powerless" as a result of the media barrage following the incident. I explained to her the bags came in different sizes and materials, like I always do. 'She looked at a frame behind me. Far above there was the 35,000 Swiss franc crocodile leather bag. 'I simply told her that it was like the one I held in my hand, only much more expensive, and that I could show her similar bags. 'It is absolutely not true that I declined to show her...

    The poor hostess told a very different story. Winfrey was browsing through some purses, and when she inquired about one particular model, the hostess suggested another, almost identical model, saying that while the other one would cost around 35k euros, the alternative one would cost much less and it's practically the same object, same model and material. Standard polite and helpful salesman behavior.

    Actress Rae Dawn Chong unleashed an angry, quasi-positive rant against Oprah Winfrey during a radio interview this week, one that attacked Winfrey's weight and used language The New York Post chose not to publish. Chong worked with Winfrey on The Color Purple, and she returned to those days during the interview with Matty P's Radio Happy Hour. The two worked well together for a spell, the actress said, but once Chong landed a role in the action film Commando things change. That’s when she was a total biotch,” she emphasized.

    OWN has pulled the plug on Rosie O’Donnell's five-month old talk show. The daily show will tape its final episode on Tuesday, March 20 to air on Friday, March 30 in its 7 p.m. time slot. The news of its demise comes two months after the ailing network announced it had hired Shane Farley (Rachel Ray, Rosie O’Donnell Show) to replace Page Hurwitz as the show’s executive producer and would move Rosie into a significantly smaller 70-seat studio. The latter was a bid to inspire a sense of intimacy and lower costs on a series that is averaging 190,000 viewers....

    The ratings-challenged “Rosie Show” has let go of as many as 30 employees and contract workers in recent weeks, Crain’s Chicago Business reported Friday. [Snip] Last month, the program moved out of Oprah’s spacious former studio and started taping in a smaller, more intimate space reminiscent of a living room. Parts of “The Rosie Show” have been axed, such as the game show segment and having a band perform on the set. [Snip] “The Rosie Show” has struggled to capture a sizeable audience. Shortly after the program’s October debut, viewer numbers have hovered around 200,000.

    Rosie O’Donnell’s TV history is repeating itself — and, as in the past, it’s getting ugly. O’Donnell’s talk show, “The Rosie Show,” is imploding just five months after launching on Oprah Winfrey’s little-watched OWN cable network. Not only is “The Rosie Show” a ratings disaster — it averaged just 150,000 viewers last week — but O’Donnell is selling her $2.5 million mansion in Chicago, where the show tapes, and reportedly wants to move the production to New York. That would leave producer Harpo with empty, expensive, unused studio space it might not want to surrender so easily. [Snip] Adding...

    FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) - Oprah Winfrey meditated with more than 400 women in southeastern Iowa and also talked to students about her spiritual journey. Suzanne Stryker says she was among the women participating in the transcendental meditation Wednesday at the Maharishi School in Fairfield. She says no one in the meditation group knew the TV personality was going to be there until Winfrey, who heads the OWN television network, arrived with a film crew. The private Maharishi School specializes in "consciousness-based education" for kindergarten through 12th grade.
