Despite retiring from broadcasting and claiming she was done with her annual "Most Fascinating People" special, Barbara Walters will once again return to our screens this year with her round-up of interesting celebs.
ABC has revealed that Babs will be back to host "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014," set to air on the network on December 14. Despite retiring from "The View" in May, following more than 50 years of broadcasting, Walters has continued to pop up on the network, interviewing the father of Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger in June, and appearing on the season premiere of "The View" last month.
It was no doubt Walters's familiar presence that prompted ABC to coax her out of retirement for the "Fascinating" special, which the network has revealed will include Oprah Winfrey, Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler, and Scarlett Johansson, among others.

"Scandal" appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers “Scandal” was written around cliffhangers in its first three seasons, but the cliffhangers have now passed on to “How To Get Away with Murder.” As Joshua Alston says of “Scandal,” "It’s no longer a political thriller with heavy-to-a-fault spy genre flourishes, it’s 'Grey’s Anatomy' in the White House. And if that’s indeed what the writers are going for, the absence of a central, hashtag-friendly mystery makes perfect sense. I’ve been suspiciously anticipating this direction, but I’m far less worried than I was. If 'Like Father, Like Daughter' is any indication, that version of Scandal would be well-worth watching, if perhaps not the Twitter fuel it once was.” Plus: “Scandal” Secret Service agent talks about his big role.

The 80’s gave us, among many other less savory things, the birth of the modern music video. More than a few stars from this era owed their success to the image created by their flashy, glitzy promo clips: Duran Duran, Prince, Madonna. Even Michael Jackson, already a huge star saw his success grow even further due to his massively huge “Thriller” clip.
By the time the 90’s came around, we as viewers were already used to the cliches of the form: Dry ice, lasers, cheesy editing and video effects were all old hat. Something new would have to come around to entice an increasingly jaded audience, and these 20 memorable videos managed to do just that, and in the process defined the era in which they were released.

Raven-Symone clarifies her controversial comments that she doesn't want to be labeled "African-American."
"I'm tired of being labeled," the former child star said during her episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, which aired on Sunday. "I'm an American. I'm not an African-American -- I'm American."
"I don't know where my roots go to," she explained. "I don't know how far back they go. ... I don't know what country in Africa I'm from, but I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I'm American. And that's a colorless person."

Peaks and Vallée: Witherspoon Eats, Prays, Hikes
When Cheryl Strayed’s memoir was released in 2012, the climate for gender politics was different. The book’s popularity soared not only because it was endorsed by media giants such as Oprah, and that its cover was gender neutral, but because it was, simply, a relatable human story. Strayed’s personal journey ends with her having no money, home, or romantic partner, and yet it’s a happy ending. Reese Witherspoon is a revelatory as the brash yet broken central character in writer Nick Hornby’s refreshing tome adaptation, while director Jean-Marc Vallée delivers both a sensorial and lyrical movie adaptation of Wild, which despite being written for the screen and directed by men, is feminist through and through.
It seems as though the scariest word in popular media these days is ‘feminism’. Everyone from nubile It Girls to seasoned actors are quizzed about their feminist stance. »

In order for Oprah Winfrey to live her best life, she must remain grateful. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, the November issue of O, The Oprah Magazine is dedicated to "The Power of Gratitude." Winfrey reveals, "I wake up every morning and the first sentence that comes through my brain is, 'Thank you.'" In her experience, she says, "If you focus on what you have, you will begin to see that you have more. And if you focus on what you don't have, you will always live in a space of lack." So, how does Winfrey keep things in perspective? "I've been on the road now since September, going from city to city on weekends for The Life You Want tour," she writes in »
Statistically, it’s a certainty that there are many gay players in the NFL, but only one current player – Michael Sam – has ever come out publicly. It was undoubtedly a brave decision, and football is not the only sport with similar problems. English Premiership soccer, for example, had a grand total of zero openly gay players until German Thomas Hitzlsperger came out this year – after he’d retired. Justin Fashanu, who played for various clubs in England, Canada and the USA, came out in 1990. By 1997 he was still the only openly gay player in the game, and he committed suicide in 1998.
It was never going to be easy for Michael Sam. Though attitudes have liberalized greatly over the past few years, particularly with the introduction of marriage for gay people, it still takes a great deal of courage to stand up as he has done and tell the truth, »
