Oprah Winfrey quickly chatted with ExtraTv and was asked her thoughts about Rihanna taking Chris Brown back. Diplomatic Oprah asked “Is she back with him, I don’t know if that’s true but, no I’m not surprised.” Then she goes on to say….
“[Rihanna] learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown — exactly what she needed to learn from her father. I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it. I have no judgment about it.”
“That’s why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever. If that’s how you choose to lead your life, that’s really okay.”

Mjj says….. Your O-ness has no judgement huh?It makes me wonder what the 80′s male bashing O would have had to say…..hmmmmmm. Low ratings is the new muzzle.
Paris Jackson is only 14 years old, and has experienced a loss of someone near and dear, her father Michael Jackson. Paris told Oprah during a recent exclusive interview for OWN network that dealing with the loss of her father “never gets easier”.
The topic of “childhood” was a recurring theme throughout the interview, since the lack of a childhood was one of Michael Jackson’s life-shaping events. Paris revealed that he made them wear masks so they could indeed have the childhood he missed.
“I was really confused. I didn’t get why I was wearing a mask,” Jackson reveals. “I understand it now. My dad wanted us to be covered [because] he wanted us to have a childhood.” She explained, that covering up was the only way they could be like other kids. “Chuck E. Cheese was one of our most favorite places to go.”….check out a clip from the episode here!

Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law Patricia Houston left no stone unturned in describing to Oprah Winfrey the horrible series of moments in which she discovered the talented-yet-troubled music icon had died last month.
Patricia, who’s married to Whitney’s brother Gary, said in her appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter Sunday that while the “handwriting was kind of on the wall” that the embattled Grammy-winner would suffer a premature death, the events of Saturday, February 11, still resonated with deep and shocking pain.
Patricia said she’d just finished a few chores when she went to see the I Will Always Love You singer in her suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she was to attend Grammy-related festivities that weekend.
“I headed down the hallway … I heard screaming,” Patricia recalled, sobbing. “I saw [Whitney’s] makeup artist [Mary] drop to her knees and I knew something was wrong. I was just numb. I walked. I told her to dial 911.
“I got close, and I turned the corner, Mary was at the door, and she is screaming ‘Oh my God!’ I told her to stop and I said, ‘Calm down.”‘
Patricia said Whitney’s security guard Ray gave everything he had to try and help the fallen singer.
“When I got into the room I saw Ray trying to revive her to the point of exhaustion. I said, ‘Ray!’ — the paramedics were coming in at that point — I said, ‘Ray let it go.’ He said, ‘I tried.’ He was so out of breath, I felt so badly for him.”
Patricia said she saw Whitney lying in the bathtub, looking at peace.
“I don’t know how she got there — [paramedics] had to pull her out of the tub and were trying to revive her,” Patricia said, noting she struggled to leave the room during their resuscitation efforts.
“I saw them cover her up and I knew that was it. I knew that was it. Just looking at her and watching that I still could not believe it I could not believe it.”
“Were you always afraid of that day, February 11, showing up in your life?” Oprah, also weeping at this point, asked Patricia. “Were you always afraid of getting a phone call or hearing that this is the day that it’s happened?”
Patricia said, “If things hadn’t changed — but things had, were, changing. Things were really changing with her. Very much so … not this soon, I never thought anything like this would happen.”
Mediajuicejoint: Oprah did an outstanding job, the questions were straight forward and the Houston’s seemed at ease for such a crucial, painful, way to soon time….May God continue to provide comfort to the Family.
