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.

Wow MC is like a dragon to me, that has been sleeping quietly, and something woke her up all of a sudden, to spit fire with that raw but beautiful voice of hers. I have been watching the videos from her Elusive tour and to see fans from there showing love for her and singing along Hero for example is totally glorious. I think her eyes and heart nee... read more

||New song (47,572)
by Abraham from USA|
That new song in Kuala Lumpur sounded interesting. That short clip wasn't enough. Hopefully we'll get to hear all of it soon. I was wondering when Mariah was going to start singing new songs. She had said to not be surprised if sang some new songs, other than the "Don't explain" cover. I was like, okay, where are they? Not being rude. I just really... read more

||Impromptu moments (47,571)
by MCFan#1 from usa|
I am new to this message board but not new to the site. I had to come in and comment on the Kuala Lumpur impromptu videos. Now that's what I call perfect. "In the rain, I guess we're just a little bit south of Spain. Lighting strikes, Kuala Lumpur." I mean it does not get any prettier than that.
