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.

Sad news if it's true (46,223) by Manny from U.S.

Nick has admitted they are living in separate households. If they do divorce, I feel bad for Mariah. Her kids are three years old. The same age Mariah was when her parents divorced. They always seemed like a happy couple. I was glad she found that stability with her marriage and kids. I liked Nick in the beginning. They were so in love. Later he wa... read more

Mariah's struggles / eternal optimists (46,221) by this_is_qhm from the Philippines

I feel awful now. Mariah was probably struggling trying to keep everything together in her troubled career while simultaneously trying to mend the tears in her marriage all while trying to keep up this facade that everything is fine. While I on the other hand, did nothing but wonder why she wasn't out there promoting her latest work, complaining ab... read more
