Fans, Fun and Oprah: Barbara Walters Celebrates Her Final Day on The View

Originally posted 05/16/2014 01:55PM

Barbara Walters said goodbye to The View, the woman-powered talk show she created for ABC in 1997, Friday morning.

"I may be available for supermarket openings and charity auctions," she joked at the hour's close before going on to mention her interviews of the powerful and famous on her specials and then on to her many years as the unmistakeable head of the table on The View, on which she'll remain executive producer.

This had been billed, somewhat delicately, as Walters's farewell to daytime television, but her summing up sounded very much like a pronounced "I'm outta here!"

See Oprah's Entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-Themed Episode from 1990

Originally posted 05/14/2014 03:00PM

Now that Oprah Winfrey sits at the top of a vast media empire rivaled in glory only by the splendor of Imperial Rome, it's sometimes hard to remember that she started her career as the host of a humble daytime talk show, a job that required her occasionally to do silly things like hang out with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

That's not a metaphor. In 1990, Winfrey played host to live-action versions of the famous fighting terrapins, giving away an entire hour to the foursome as they sang, danced and lectured children on the importance of literacy, all to promote their Coming Out of Their Shells tour.

Footage of the Turtles' appearance was thought to be lost to history until Tumblr user Uncanny Brett White discovered a VHS copy of the episode and uploaded it to YouTube on Sunday.

Justin Timberlake Set to Open Oprah's Master Class

Originally posted 05/06/2014 10:00AM



Ever wondered how to bring sexy back?

Just ask Justin Timberlake, the first celebrity to impart his wisdom in the new season of Oprah's Master Class. In an exclusive sneak peek, the singer shares the biggest lesson from his career: being a beginner is a good thing.

"If I'm not learning from something that I'm doing, then that means I've done it before. Do something different, even if it's within the same medium," Timberlake, 33, says in the clip. "To try new things, that makes more sense to me than making a career out of doing the exact same thing over and over and over and over again."

Timberlake knows a thing or two about reinvention: The multitalented entertainer went from Disney darling and boy-band heartthrob to successful solo artist and buzzed about actor – and made some of the funniest Saturday Night Live sketches come alive along the way.

Originally posted 04/21/2014 08:00AM

Fans wanting to know more about Lindsay Lohan's life certainly got their wish Sunday night on Lindsay.

While the bulk of the OWN series about the actress focused on Lohan's struggle to revive her career and stay sober, the two-hour OWN documentary finale delivered a totally unexpected disclosure: She had suffered a miscarriage during filming.

The admission raised quite a few questions that largely went unanswered, but this is what Lohan did divulge in the series' final moments:
