WILLIS BLASTS OPRAH, TABLOIDS

A Million Little Pieces fan Bruce Willis says that author James Frey was "sucker-punched" by Oprah Winfrey during the recent flap over the "memoir." On iFMagazine.com, Willis shouts out, "'Hey, Oprah. You had President Clinton on your show and if this p---k didn't lie about a couple of things, I'm going to set myself on fire.' It's just shameful how [Frey] was treated." Willis also blames the tabloids that perpetuated Frey's persecution. "They lie about people and just make up s--- all week long, and you have to sue them to get it changed. [And yet] no one is yelling at them." Well, no one other than you and Mr. Cruise. read more

XM AND O

If only because, at the end of the day, she does not have enough money, Oprah Winfrey has signed a three-year, $55 million deal to debut a new XM Satellite Radio channel in September. Titled "Oprah & Friends," the channel will air programming related to fitness, health, self-improvement and how best to organize your private jets. read more

CHAPPELLE COMES CLEAN

According to the website for The Oprah Winfrey Show, comedian Dave Chappelle will address the "widely reported rumors" of why he "mysteriously disappeared" last spring — leaving Comedy Central in a bit of a pickle — when he gives the talker his first television interview on Friday. But will Oprah be able to tell if his story is fact or fiction? read more

WB BOOTS TWO

WB has benched for the time being both Living with Fran and Blue Collar TV, although both shows will remain in production. Melanie Griffith's Twins (the show, people) will take over Fran's slot, while an encore airing of Supernatural will be offered up to the 17 people who were choosing Blue Collar over the Housewives on Sunday at 9. read more

Oprah and Martha's Daytime Emmy Mysteries

From the talk shows to the soaps, the 32nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards are all about the drama. Before you watch tonight (9 pm/ET on CBS), we answer some nagging questions. Why no Oprah?After winning seven Emmys as host and nine for best talk show, the Big O took herself and her show out of those races several years ago. But she still lets her technicians compete (they have four nods this year, ranging from lighting to hairdos). Winfrey's guilt over gilt has opened the door to some very bizarre entries — how else to explain the best-talk-show nod for SoapNet's hopelessly dopey Soap Talk? (Editor's Note: We must respectfully point out that Mr. Logan's take on Soap Talk is his own.) Will Martha Stewart show up?Recently, the house-arrest queen has been under investigation by her probation officers for attending an awards gala that may not have been all that business-related. But we bet she'll be at the Emmys. Not only is Mar read more

Premise: A one-woman (one name, really) entertainment dynasty, and the gold standard in the talk-show genre, able to attract just about any guest, and so influential that her `book club' practically guaranteed that works she endorsed would be bestsellers. Smart and charismatic, the multi-Emmy winner is also self-effacing enough that, after copping the TV academy's Lifetime Achievement Award, she removed herself from more Emmy nods, noting, `after you've achieved it for a lifetime, what else is there?'
