“Time to Ban Our Princes From Marrying American Women” Piers Morgan Says as he Compares Meghan to American Socialite Wallis Simpson who led Harry’s Great-uncle King Edward VIII to Abdicate his Throne

Before Prince Harry, who stepped back from his royal duties to protect his wife, there was King Edward VIII who abdicated his throne so that he can marry an American socialite. King Edward VIII is Prince Harry's great-uncle. He gave up his throne to marry American socialite, Wallis Simpson, when it became apparent he could not marry her and remain on the throne. Edward was a king for only 326 days, making him the shortest reigning monarch in British history. His abdication gave room for his younger brother, George VI, who is Prince Harry's great-grandfather, to become King. For Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, she wore a dress that has now been compared to a floral dress Wallis Simpson wore in a photo taken before King Edward abdicated the throne to m...

Oprah Winfrey Confirms No Plans To Run For US President

Talk show icon Oprah Winfrey has again confirmed she has no intention of running for US president, despite revealing that would-be donors offered to raise $1 billion for her to take on Donald Trump in 2020. The 64-year-old billionaire prompted a blaze of speculation last month that she might be nurturing political ambitions after a rousing speech at the Golden Globes, heralding a “new day” in the wake of the sexual harassment watershed. Hollywood’s loathing of Trump and Democrats’ bafflement that a crass-talking reality star with no previous government experience could win the presidency have fueled talk of, well, why not another television star, only one with the “right” politics? “I am actually humbled by the fact that people think that I could be a leader of the free world, but...

Oprah Winfrey Becomes The First Black Woman To Win The Cecil B. Demille Award At The Golden Globes

Oprah Winfrey was this year's recipient of the Cecil B. Demille award at the 75th Golden Globes award, making her the first black woman honored since inception in 1943 and what a powerful speech she gave. Read the full text of her speech below... Ah!

In 1964, I was a little girl sitting on the linoleum floor of my mother’s house in Milwaukee, watching Anne Bancroft present the Oscar for best actor at the 36th Academy Awards. She opened the envelope and said five words that literally made history: “The winner is Sidney Poitier.” Up to the stage came the most elegant man I had ever seen.

Oprah Winfrey Reveals The Worst Guests She Ever Had On The Oprah Winfrey Show

Oprah Winfrey thrives on meaningful conversations. For 25 years, she interviewed everyone on The Oprah Winfrey Show, from reality stars to royalty. But, as she reveals on Harry Tuesday, not every conversation had its aha moments. "You talk about all of the guests you've had over years," Harry Connick Jr. says. "Has anyone been particularly annoying, where you're just like, 'Gosh, I can't wait for this person to leave?'" "Well, I mean, the worst kind of guest—you've had this, too—is when you ask them question and they start talking about 1975, and then you think, 'Oh, we are in 2017. How long is it going to take us to get to 2017?' That's the worst," says Winfrey, who was on the show to promote her latest book, The Wisdom of Sundays: Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations. "...
