The Mayor of Newark, Cory Booker, sat down for a rare one-on-one interview with “Extra’s” AJ Calloway to discuss his political aspirations and rumored romances.
Mayor Booker, known to be a political rock star with a strong future in politics, was also recently named one of Town and Country Magazine’s Top 50 Bachelors. He’s also been linked to Oprah Winfrey’s BFF, Gayle King.
Oprah's good friend Maria Shriver will NOT be taking Rosie O'Donnell's place in a new show, according to an OWN spokesperson. The network rep told "Extra," "We love Maria, however, there are no plans with her at this time to do a show for OWN."
A recent report claimed Oprah was ready to give Shriver a reality show, and since Maria's children are almost out of the house, with the exception of Christopher, it would be feasible for Shriver to venture into a new project. The report also claimed Winfrey offered to have the show tape in L.A., so the former California First Lady could be close to her family.
"Extra's" AJ Calloway caught up with Gayle King on the red carpet on Sunday night's 2012 Grammy Awards, and talked to King about Whitney Houston's shocking and sudden death.
King, who explained she felt "conflicted" about attending Clive Davis' pre-Grammy bash during such a tragic time, and said, "On the one hand, we're there to celebrate the music industry, but on the other, we're filled with such grief to the loss of Whitney Houston. For me, it was an evening of contradictions, but I was still glad we were able to gather."
With one more week to go until Oprah Winfrey's final show on May 25, "Extra's" AJ Calloway caught up with Winfrey's BFF, Gayle King, to get the inside scoop on the giant finale.
"Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular" will be taped in front of 20,000 fans at Chicago's United Center.
After Monday's jaw-dropping family secret had been revealed on "Oprah," Ms. Winfrey followed up with a guest appearance on her best friend Gayle King's television talk show on Tuesday.
Talk show host and Oprah BFF Gayle King stopped by The Grove to talk with "Extra's" Mario Lopez about her new TV gig, "The Gayle King Show" on Winfrey's OWN Network.
"We're marrying radio and TV together," King explained, referring to her already popular Oprah XM radio show of the same name. "It's not celebrity-driven, although I am a big pop culture junkie and news junkie, and so certainly very in touch with that. What makes it work is the people that come to play with me."
Queen of Talk Oprah Winfrey sat down for an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters -- once again addressing rumors that she is a lesbian.
"I'm not a lesbian," O said. "I'm not even kind of a lesbian. And the reason why it irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's number one. Number two ... why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life."
Norh Robinson, a poor farmer from Mississippi and a World War II veteran is making a desperate plea to Oprah Winfrey to take a DNA test to prove he's her dad.
"I told her [in a letter], if she wanted, I'd give her one," Robinson, 84, told the NY Post. He said he dreams of talking to Oprah just once before he dies.
