Oprah Winfrey has been named Forbes' most influential person of 2013, topping their list for the second year in a row.
"It's The Rosie Show!" shouts a blonde lady sitting at a desk in the middle of the studio formerly known for hosting Oprah Winfrey's talk show during the Monday premiere of Rosie O'Donnell's latest foray into the genre. We cut to Rosie on a stage, doing stand-up that's eerily reminiscent of the early Seinfeld days. Except that jokes about puffy shirts and Halloween candy are funny, and this is not. I was hoping to include Rosie's funniest one-liner here, but there weren't any.

Sarah Ferguson says her OWN docu-series Finding Sarah is not about her.
"Whatever [viewers] get from this is their choice," she says. "I've made mistakes, I'm human ... if you can relate to my ways and my demons then I hope it helps, but it's about them not me."
In the six-part series, the Dutchess of York sets out to put her life in order after many publicized set-backs like her divorce to Prince Andrew. Along the way she deals with her weight, finances and relationships by receiving help from experts like Dr. Phil and Suze Orman. Dr. Phil calls her "emotionally bankrupt" in an early episode and Ferguson admits to us he was right.

The financial advisor, who also has an eponymous show on CNBC, will host Money Class on Oprah Winfrey's new network.

Fans of Oprah Winfrey's brand of feel-good, heartstring-tugging programming got a week-late Christmas present on New Year's Day, as the daytime queen's eponymous cable network, OWN, finally hit the air.
What to watch on Oprah's new network
Winfrey, who will leave behind her No. 1 syndicated talk show this spring after 25 years on the air, hosted the first hour of programming, previewing some of the original series she is most excited about. While continuously reinforcing the network's "live your best life now" mantra, Winfrey introduced gripping and sometimes tear-jerking sizzle reels.

It used to be that celebrity beefs were settled privately by their handlers and fan gripes were reserved for chat rooms. Now, with much of Hollywood hitting the social-network scene, these formerly undisclosed matters are on display for the world to weigh in on. The revolution is being Twitterized.
Whether it's Joan Rivers ripping on Lindsay Lohan, Suze Orman calling out the Kardashian sisters for hidden fees in their debit card (they've since dropped the project) or Kanye West blasting Matt Lauer, Twitter has become a public thunderdome where celebs can show their true colors in 140-character splashes free from publicist spin.

In this episode, we got to further discover how Kathy wants to get off the D-list and onto the G-list. And by G, I mean Grammy. I think mama Maggie said it best: "Don't you have to sing or play instruments to get a Grammy?" Of course, Kathy doesn't plan on singing for her (Grammy) supper she wants to be nominated for either Best Comedy Album or Best Spoken Word recording for her CD. So this week, we got to see portions of Kathy's campaign to grab that Grammy nomination.I've got to first say that I saw the brilliant "Kathy Griffin: For Your Consideration" billboard (where Kathy is crawling hysterically on a red carpet) while driving recently on Sunset Blvd. here in LA.

I'll add that the billboard is placed in one of the busiest sections of Sunset Blvd. (right off Crescent Heights), so I've got to commend Kathy's m...
