Oprah's legends reunite
The power of Oprah was on display once again on Thursday night, as she partied with
Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey and many more in New York. One year ago, Oprah welcomed
the people she admired to her Legends Ball. But on Thursday, Access Hollywood's Tim
Vincent was there for a Legends reunion important enough to lure Janet and her new body.
And talk about fabulous at 40!|
Janet, who showed up arm in arm with boyfriend Jermaine Dupri, looked stunning in a
black vintage Aliah suit, revealing her newly slimmed down tiny waist. "I just went in
my closet and threw it on," Janet smiled. Miss Jackson turns the big 4-0 on Tuesday
and she has much to celebrate. Her new "20 Years Old" album is due out in September,
and then she will begin her world tour.
So what does Janet have planned for her b-day? "Party, I guess," she laughed. And what
better place to start than at the screening of "Oprah Winfrey's Legends Ball" on Thursday!
"The last time I watched it, I was watching it with Stedman in our house the other night
and I was boo hooing and he was crying too," Oprah told us. "We were like 'Oh my God, it
gets better with time.'" "Like 'Terms of Endearment'," Tim joked. "Yes. It just gets
better with time," she said.
The ABC special (which airs Monday at 8 p.m.) features 25 inspiration women who were
honored on Oprah's Montecito ranch a year ago in a lavish affair. "What is one moment
that stands out to you that makes it very special?" Tim asked Oprah. "There is a moment
when Halle Berry, Tina Turner, Maya Angelou and Cecily Tyson, and there is Roberta Flack
and there is Mary J. Blige and Gladys Knight," she shared. "And I thought 'Oh my God they
are all in your living room!'"
Oprah, in a long black Ferre skirt and simple white Anne Fontaine blouse, arrived with
best friend Gayle King and newly elected Newark, New Jersey mayor Cory Booker. But one
legend noticeably absent then and now is Whitney Houston, who is struggling once again
with substance abuse.
"She was invited last year and she was invited again this year," Oprah said with a shrug.
"Have you reached out to her and know that she is OK?" Tim asked. "I can't say that I
know she is OK," Oprah replied.

I understand that you feel that way and I will respect that. However everyone has an opinion and I don't think judging or starting a conflict by disagreeing is the way to go. That's not the purpose of this forum. Abraham and those who have been here on this forum for years, understand that. Everything they say seems to come from a respectful and no... read more

Is their any chance that you could be less sensitive. No one really cares about what you feel, what you think, or your opinions. No one is trying to argue. It's a fan forum. We just want to say what we think. I read all the comments and none of them were directed towards you. So please be more respectful when you comment. Also my advice to everyone... read more

My entire post on Mariah's history with Derek checks out 100%. I deliberately refrained from filling in the blanks because it's never necessary when you present facts anyway. The story tells itself basically. Who knew the truth would be such a controversy in this day and age? It's literally old news. The only thing open to interpretation, as per Ma... read more
