Lance Interview Shocks Many That Oprah Still On TV
CHICAGO (CAP) - Oprah Winfrey's highly publicized interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong left millions of viewers shocked to hear that the talk show maven was actually still on television.
"Wait - you mean she still has, like, a show and everything?" said Carly Manfred, 42, of South Bend, Ind., who said she had watched Winfrey's syndicated program religiously, but had no idea she had any TV presence whatsoever since it went off the air in 2011.
Asked if she had any knowledge of Winfrey's OWN network, which is available in about 80 million homes including her own home in South Bend, Manfred responded. "OWN ... Nope, I got nothing."
The reaction was similar around the country, where most assumed Oprah had signed off from her daily talk show - where she finally nailed a much-heralded interview with Jesus - and simply retired, or gone back to opening new schools in Africa that nobody wanted.
"Now that I know she's actually on TV I might start watching her again," said Manfred, before thinking for a moment and then adding, "Naaaaaaah."
HOLLYWOOD (CAP) - Star Trek: Into Darkness, the second Trek movie in the series of reboots directed by J.J. Abrams, ruled the box office over the weekend, drawing almost as huge an audience as one of George Takei's Facebook memes involving Capt. Jean-Luc Picard or a cat.
"Really, we couldn't be any happier," said Peter Franklin of Paramount Pictures of the opening weekend gross. "About the only way we could have done better is if we had made a meme involving Darth Vader or Willy Wonka or gay marriage, and George Takei had shared it."
Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series, now spends most of his time sharing memes on Facebook that are in turn liked and shared by his over 100 million followers, usually within minutes.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (CAP) - Even as news continues to filter out about whether and where Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab, officials at the Morningside Recovery Center are flattered that Lindsay Lohan would fly all the way across the country just to visit them - so much so that they have decided to name a wing after the troubled actress.
"Just as we are dedicated to providing exceptional care, treatment and services to the plethora of junkies, lushes and losers who walk through our doors, it's only appropriate that we honor those who show the same dedication by coming back again and again," the center said in a prepared statement.
The newly named Lohan Adjunct is located inside Morningside's clinical building and contains half a dozen general purpose rooms perfect for impromptu meetings with one's agent, signing the first 100 copies of one's tell-all book, or discussing rights to the movie with producers.
