Is Queen Latifah Obligated To Discuss Her Private Life On Her New Show?

Is Queen Latifah Obligated To Discuss Her Private Life On Her New Show?
Queen Latifah's refusal to address long-standing rumors about her private life on her highly-anticipated new talk show was debated at length on The Rubin Report this week.

Host Dave Rubin was joined by YouTube's Shanna Malcolm and SiriusXM's Sam Roberts to discuss the issue at length.

Calling Queen Latifah's decision "highly problematic," Malcolm noted, "It's very different when you start out as an Oprah WInfrey, who started out as a reporter...where it's a little bit more detached. [Your guests] should know you, and feel like they can talk to you."

Roberts added, "Why don't we learn from history: it drove Rosie [O'Donnell] insane -- literally insane -- that she had to go on and pretend to be in love with Tom Cruise...and not be herself on The Rosie Show ... People like it when people are being themselves."

Oprah Winfrey‘s cable network Own (the Oprah Winfrey Network) is making its first venture into scripted TV.

Oprah Winfrey Named Highest-Paid Celebrity—but No. 2 Is a Surprise

Oprah Winfrey Named Highest-Paid Celebrity—but No. 2 Is a Surprise
Oprah Winfrey may have retired her namesake talk show for good in 2011, but she's still rollin' in the dough as the titular head of her own TV network. The daytime legend has topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid celebrities for the fourth year in a row with $165 million earned between May 2011 and May 2012. The news comes even after Own, her fledgling eponymous cable channel, has faced disappointing ratings. That prompted her to rethink Own's lineup—like deciding to pull the plug on The Rosie Show in March. Winfrey later admitted to pal Gayle King on CBS' The Early Show, "If I were writing a book about [running a network], I could call the book 101...

Rosie O'Donnell Supports Oprah Winfrey At School Fundraiser
Comedienne Rosie O'Donnell proved she had no hard feelings towards her former TV boss Oprah Winfrey on Wednesday night after joining the media mogul at a New York fundraiser for her South African girls school.

The Rosie Show was axed from Winfrey's Own network in March after just one season on air and the cancellation was rumoured to have caused a rift between the two stars.

But O'Donnell showed she had nothing but love for Winfrey by turning up to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls benefit at the Jazz at Lincoln Center venue this week.

Cindi Berger, O'Donnell's representative, tells the New York Daily News, "They have an excellent relationship. It was a very special night and a wonderful time."

The event featured a performance by the first class of graduates from the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in Johannesburg.

Other guests to show their support for Winfrey's cause included singer Mary J. Blige, actress Goldie Hawn, model Iman and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons.

Winfrey opened the school in 2007 to provide education for disadvantaged females.

Marianne Schnall: Behind-the-Scenes At Oprah's Lifeclass With Tony Robbins And Deepak Chopra
It's not every day Radio City Music Hall temporarily closes down its men's bathroom. But that's exactly what happened when Oprah Winfrey decided to film two episodes of her Lifeclass series at the famous theater in New York City. My adventure started when I got the email from the Own team inviting me to attend the tapings of Oprah's Lifeclass: The Tour featuring two charismatic guest teachers -- spiritual wise man Deepak Chopra, who taught the afternoon show about tapping into your spiritual side (which will air on Own on April 23) and charismatic life coach Tony Robbins, who taught the evening live show about living fearlessly.

When I first got to the theater, I was escorted backstage, downstairs to the brightly lit Rockettes dressing room, to convene with about ten other journalists, and then taken into a small room next door for an intimate meet-and-greet with Tony Robbins. We

An unusually candid Oprah Winfrey told Charlie Rose and Gayle King this morning on CBS that launching the Oprah Winfrey Network was something she wanted to do but “had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else.”

“Really?” replied Rose on CBS This Morning. “If you knew it was going to be this difficult, you might have not done it?”

“Oh, absolutely,” Winfrey replied. “I didn’t think it was going to be easy, but I did not know…. If I knew then what I know now, I might have made some different choices.”

Rosie O'Donnell Selling Miami Beach Mansion for $19.5 Million
The Rosie Show isn't the only thing ending—so is Rosie O'Donnell's tenure as a homeowner in Miami Beach. On the same day as the final episode of her Own talk show (today), the New York-bound Emmy winner listed her lavish spread on tony Star Island Drive for $19.5 million. Fair enough. It's pretty fancy. O'Donnell purchased the 11,000-square-foot waterfront home on 1.11 acres of land for $6.75 million back in 1999, when she and ex-wife (then partner) Kelli Carpenter had yet to welcome their fourth child. The house boasts six bedroom and five baths, plus there are two separate guest homes on the property, according to the South Beach Real Estate Blog. Built in...

Watch: Stephen Baldwin Clarifies His Stance On Gay Marriage To Rosie O'Donnell
Actor Stephen Baldwin took to "The Rosie Show" in an effort to clarify his stance on same-sex marriage.

Baldwin, who is known for his evangelical Christian faith, spoke out earlier this month in defense of "Growing Pains" star Kirk Cameron, whose controversial remarks on homosexuality and same-sex marriage ignited a media firestorm.

"It's not what you say, it's how you say it,” Baldwin explained to host Rosie O'Donnell while noting that she was one of the gay people in his life that he “loved and admired." He then added, "I have never said the gay community doesn't have any rights."

When O'Donnell pressed Baldwin on whether or not lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (Lgbt) people should have the right to marry, the actor replied, "Yes -- meaning, in their world."

Interrupted O'Donnell, "Well, not in your church. Just legally in a union.”

“Absolutely,” Baldwin noted.

Mike Tyson And Rosie Talk Shared Love Of Mma

Mike Tyson And Rosie Talk Shared Love Of Mma
Mike Tyson and Rosie O'Donnell bonded over a mutual admiration for and love of mixed martial arts (Mma) on "The Rosie Show" (Weeknights, 7 p.m. Et on Own). As many consider Mike Tyson to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, there may be some added weight to his words when he says Fedor Emelianenko is the greatest Mma fighter of all time.

It helps that he's not alone in that assessment of the now 35-year old athlete, who went undefeated for ten years. But he's no longer at the apex of his career, so O'Donnell and Tyson agreed that they're currently more excited about Urijah Faber.

Tyson laughed, calling him "the little guy" -- Faber stands 5'6" -- and saying, "He's so cute with the hair." For O'Donnell, she loved how relaxed he was during a fight. "They have him in the headlock and they have him in the crucifix,
