Oprah Winfrey Thought About Killing Herself After Becoming Pregnant at the Age of 14:

OPRAH WINFREY was on the debut episode of PIERS MORGAN'S new CNN show last night . . . and during the interview, she talked about her rough childhood, which included becoming pregnant when she was 14 years old. --She explained, quote, "I knew that me getting pregnant was a result of bad choices, and not having boundaries, and sexual abuse from the time I was 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. --"I thought before the baby was born, 'I'm going to have to kill myself.'" --Oprah ended up losing the baby. But before she did, she admitted to trying to SABOTAGE the pregnancy and / or kill herself. --Fortunately, she didn't do anything TOO dangerous, but she does say that she, quote, "did stupid things like drinking detergent." --Oprah added, quote, "I knew that [the baby's death] was my second chance." (--You can watch a video clip from the interview, here.)

Nicole Kidman Has a New Baby Daughter . . . Here's Why She Didn't Look Pregnant At the Golden Globes:

Yesterday, NICOLE KIDMAN and KEITH URBAN announced that they have a NEW baby daughter. Her name is Faith Margaret Kidman Urban. --Now, you may be saying, "Hold up a second there, cowboy. I saw her at the Golden Globes on Sunday night and she was looking MISCHA BARTON-thin, like always." And there's a reason for that. --Nicole and Keith used a surrogate. Nicole donated her egg, Keith donated his manly country-music playing seed . . . so the surrogate gave birth to Nicole and Keith's biological daughter. She was born in Nashville on December 28th. --They already have one daughter, a two-year-old named Sunday Rose. --Nicole has always had some difficulty getting pregnant, which is probably why they went the surrogate route. When she was with TOM CRUISE, she had a miscarriage; and she has said it took, quote, "so long" to get pregnant with Sunday. --Nicole and Keith released a statement yesterday saying, quote, "Our family is truly blessed and just so thankful to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret. --"No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier."

Brooke Mueller's Mother Says Her Daughter Is Considering Getting Back Together With Charlie Sheen:

No amount of hookers, porn stars, and porn star hookers can stop true love. Even after everything CHARLIE SHEEN has done . . . and done VERY publicly . . . BROOKE MUELLER is considering getting back together with him. --Brooke's mom, Moira Fiore, told reporters, quote, "They're talking about it constantly. Charlie's been telling her that [the reason] things haven't gone well for him is because they broke up. I think he's making her feel guilty and he wants to be with Brooke." --Charlie filed for divorce from Brooke back in November. They've been separated since Christmas of 2009, when Charlie assaulted her on a trip to Aspen, Colorado.

Is It On? Christina Aguilera Allegedly Went After Julianne Hough At a Party:

Well, we're not 100% sure why CHRISTINA AGUILERA would have a deep, burning anger toward JULIANNE HOUGH. If we had to guess, they're fighting over the love of RYAN SEACREST. But that's really just a guess. --On Friday night, both Christina and Julianne were at a party at the Soho House in West Hollywood. Julianne's boyfriend Ryan wasn't there. --And, allegedly, Christina wasn't happy to see Julianne. She ran over, got in her face, screamed at her, and then even grabbed her. --She also threatened to destroy Julianne's new country music singing career. (--You know, before zero album sales handle that for her.) --There's no word on what set Christina off. --Christina's management said these reports are, quote, "nonsense." --Both Christina and Julianne were in "Burlesque" and there were reports that they were becoming good friends. E! Online says they talked to a source who says those friendship rumors weren't true . . . they don't get along at all.

Thanks To Al Roker's Hard-Hitting Journalism Skills, We've Learned Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds Are *Not* Together:

There have been a few rumors floating around in the tabloids that SANDRA BULLOCK and RYAN REYNOLDS have rebounded to each other. But, before Sunday, no one had asked either of them about it directly. --Finally, one bastion of journalistic integrity was brave enough to just ask Sandra Bullock flat-out. And that man is . . . AL ROKER. Really. --At the Golden Globes, Al asked Sandra if she's smashing genitalia with Ryan. And she responded, quote, "He's not my lover, he's just an amazing friend I've had for ten years. I don't get his lovin' after dark."

January Jones and Jason Sudeikis Have Broken Up:

For some reason, JANUARY JONES from "Mad Men" and JASON SUDEIKIS from "Saturday Night Live" always seemed like an awkward couple to me. And now, that completely baseless feeling of mine has been proven right. --According to "People" magazine, they've broken up. The main problem was the long distance . . . "Mad Men" films in L.A., "SNL" is in New York.

Did the Octomom Really Star In a New S&M Fetish Video?

I guess we've reached that point in NADYA "THE OCTOMOM" SULEMAN'S downward spiral where she turns to softcore porno. --According to TMZ, Nadya recently filmed an S&M FETISH VIDEO in her house. In the video, she wears a black corset and black leggings and whips a man who's wearing a diaper and a baby bonnet. --The video is being shopped around now. No stills or clips have been released.

Ke$ha Says Her Mom Taught Her "Everything About Sex" . . . Before She Was Seven Years Old:

And the mystery of KE$HA has been solved. According to Ke$ha, her mom taught her, quote, "everything about sex" . . . before she turned SEVEN. --Quote, "My mom left me at home when I was 14 with a credit card and a box of condoms and the keys to the car and said, 'Don't get pregnant and don't drink and drive.' I had to be responsible for myself." --Ke$ha doesn't know who her father is . . . she says, quote, "I talked to my mom about it. She has a sketchy memory. I don't really care. I'm going to pretend like my dad is MICK JAGGER and proceed." (--If that's true, wouldn't her line in "Tik Tok" about kicking guys to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger be incestuous? Or at least the female version of an Oedipus complex, the Electra complex? On second thought, let's not talk about this.)

Robert Downey Jr. Has Signed On To Star In an Animated Version of Mr. Peabody and Sherman:

If you're old enough to remember "Rocky and Bullwinkle" . . . or you're younger but have ignored the Pokemons and Family Guys of the world to watch classic cartoons from the '60s . . . then you'll love this. --DreamWorks is making an animated version of Mr. Peabody and Sherman . . . and ROBERT DOWNEY JR. has signed on to do the voice of Mr. Peabody. --In the cartoons, Mr. Peabody is a genius dog and he has a pet boy, named Sherman. They travel through time and have run-ins with historical figures. --DreamWorks is aiming for a release in 2014.

The Organizers of the "Golden Globes" Thought Ricky Gervais' Jokes "Occasionally Went Too Far":

The entertainment media has been overrun with talk about the "controversial" jokes "Golden Globes" host RICKY GERVAIS made during Sunday's show. (--They were mostly "controversial" because he was taking big shots at celebrities.) --Since Ricky IS a comedian, none of that really matters unless someone has legitimate beef with anything that Ricky said. And at least one person seemed to. --The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association . . . the organization behind the "Golden Globes" . . . thinks Ricky went a little too far. --He says, quote, "He definitely crossed the line . . . and some of the things were totally unacceptable. But that's Ricky. Any of the references to individuals is certainly not something the Hollywood Foreign Press condones." --Then, the organization as a whole released this statement: Quote, "We loved the show. It was a lot of fun and obviously has a lot of people talking. --"When you hire a comedian like Ricky, one expects in-your-face, sometimes outrageous material. Certainly, in this case, he pushed the envelope and occasionally went too far. Overall, however, the show was among the best we've ever had and we were pleased." --For what it's worth, Ricky said that after he hosted last year, he was immediately offered to come back this year . . . but after this year's show, he didn't hear anything. He added, quote, "That's ominous, isn't it? So I probably won't be here next year." --One person that did NOT have a problem with Ricky's jokes was "Boardwalk Empire" star PAZ DE LA HUERTA. However, she got so HAMMERED that she probably doesn't remember most of it. --The paparazzi caught Paz drunkenly stumbling around outside an after-party. --They filmed her being rejected from one place because she was WAY too tanked. And later . . . as she was being led to her car . . . she fell to the concrete. --After that . . . with her breast almost completely hanging out of her dress . . . she signed an autograph, and said that she thought Ricky Gervais was "funny." (--You can watch the video, here.) --One last note: This year's "Golden Globes" broadcast averaged 17 million viewers. That's basically the same as last year's show, which attracted 16.98 million people. (--The "Globes" peaked in 2004, when 26.8 million people tuned in.)
Anne Hathaway Will Play Chris Colfer's Lesbian Aunt on "Glee":

ANNE HATHAWAY will guest-star on an upcoming episode of "Glee". --The show's creator Ryan Murphy says that Anne got to "create" her own role. He explains, quote, "She wants to play the lesbian aunt of Chris Colfer . . . because everyone needs a lesbian aunt." (--Chris plays Kurt, who's also gay.) --Anne had been campaigning for a role. She recently said, quote, "Can I make a confession? In my head, I've [already] written a part for myself on 'Glee' . . . and I know which song I would sing. That's so arrogant and obnoxious." --There's no word on a possible airdate yet.

"Spartacus" Has a New Star:

--You'd better secure your passwords. 24% of people admitted they've spied on their significant other's email, texts, cell phone calls, or social media accounts. Men are more likely to end a relationship over something they find.

--People still like old-fashioned phone calls. 75% of people say the best way to get in touch after a good date is by phone.

We're More Likely To Remember Our First Kiss Than Losing Our Virginity:

According to a new book, people are actually more likely to remember their FIRST KISS than the time they lost their virginity. And no, it's NOT because most of us lose our virginity when we're hammered on wine coolers. --Sheril Kirshenbaum is a researcher at the University of Texas. And she just put out a new book called "The Science of Kissing: What Our Lips Are Telling Us". Here's what she found. --When you kiss, it's so anticipated and brings up such new and complex feelings that your brain is at its absolute sharpest. --Most people can recall 90% of the details of their first kiss . . . when it happened, where, with whom, and how you felt. --Having sex for the first time involves more nerves and requires your brain to focus on so many tasks that it's harder to remember all the little details. --Kirshenbaum's studies also found that women anticipate their first kiss more than men . . . and they usually end up feeling a little more disappointed than men after it happens, too. (Daily Mail)
Beautiful People Have Higher IQs Than Us Too?

Did the handsome and beautiful people REALLY need ANOTHER thing to make their lives so much easier than the rest of us? --According to a study at the London School of Economics, beautiful people aren't just more attractive than the rest of us . . . they also usually have higher IQs. -The study found that attractive men have IQs about 13.6 points above average, and attractive women are 11.4 points higher. --Satoshi Kanazawa led the study. Quote, "Since intelligent men are more inclined to achieve more success, they're more likely to marry beautiful women. Both intelligence and physical attractiveness are highly heritable." --That means that, over time, smart and beautiful people have kept gravitating toward each other . . . and producing smart, beautiful children. (New York Daily News)

The Head of New York City's Public Schools Joked that Overcrowding Could Be Solved With 'Birth Control':

One of the things about being a politician is that you can't actually SAY what you think. You might offend the delicate sensibilities of the sheeple you represent . . . even if they're thinking the exact same thing. --You've never heard of her, but 66-year-old Cathie Black is the New York City Schools Chancellor. That means she's the head of the entire public school system in New York. --She's only been in office two weeks, but she's already in major trouble for something she said at a meeting last week about overcrowding in Lower Manhattan schools. --When she was told the city would need space for 1,000 more elementary kids in the next four years, she said, quote, "Could we just have some birth control for a while? It could really help us all out a lot." --She was smiling when she said it, and in the video it looks like most of the people in the room laughed. But not everybody was amused. --As a result, some parents groups and New York City council members are asking Mayor Bloomberg to fire her. Council Member Charles Barron said, "We think this is outrageous, it's insulting, it's racist, and we're not accepting an apology." --The Department of Education says it was an offhand comment intended as a joke.

Should Left Turns Be Illegal?

Keep this story in mind if you want to make a NASCAR fan's head explode. According to researchers at North Carolina State University, maybe all LEFT TURNS should be illegal. --Basically, when you make a left turn, you're taking a HUGE risk. The only thing that separates you from having someone t-bone you is the faith that they're following the speed limit or that they don't run a red light. --The team at NCSU says that something called "superstreets" are much safer. (--You might also know them as "Michigan lefts.") --Basically, when you approach an intersection, your ONLY choice is to make a right turn. Then, if you wanted to go left or straight, you do a quick U-turn in a specially-designed turning lane. --The statistics don't lie . . . in tests, the superstreets reduced people's travel time by 20% and caused 46% fewer accidents. Most importantly, they caused 63% fewer accidents that resulted in injuries or deaths. --Of course, all of our roads aren't going to get ripped up and turned into superstreets anytime soon. For now, it's all just theory. (Autoblog) (--Check out this diagram of how a superstreet works.)

Six "Healthy" Foods That Might Be Ruining Your Diet:

If you've been trying to lose Holiday weight but can't, here's a list that might help. These are six foods that are usually considered healthy . . . but can actually make you gain weight . . .

#1.) Sushi. Obviously, a Philadelphia roll with cream cheese isn't the healthiest choice. But even a standard California roll can easily be five or six hundred calories. --And soy sauce is loaded with sodium, which doesn't actually make you gain weight. But it makes you retain water so you LOOK like you gained weight.

#2.) Dried Fruit. Since it's dehydrated, one cup has five to eight times more calories than fresh fruit. For example, a cup of fresh grapes has about 60 calories in it, but a cup of raisins has 460.

#3.) Bran Muffins. They have a lot of fiber, which is good. But other than that, it's basically cake. A decent-sized bran muffin can have about 20 grams of fat, 400 calories, and 30 grams of sugar. --In comparison, a Hostess Cup Cake has 7 grams of fat, 180 calories, and 20 grams of sugar.

#4.) Bottled Iced Tea. If it has sugar or honey in it, one bottle can have 150 to 200 calories, which is basically like a bottle of soda. -And too much juice can ruin a diet too. A 16-ounce glass of orange juice or apple juice has about 55 grams of carbohydrates . . . which is the same as five pieces of bread.

#5.) Rice Cakes. They're fat-free and low in calories, but they have no fiber or protein. That's why you can eat three of them and still feel hungry. And the flavored ones are almost as bad as potato chips.

#6.) Tofu. The problem is it's too bland on its own. So if you order it at a restaurant, they'll add salt, butter, or sugar to make it taste better . . .which also makes it a lot less helpful if you're trying to lose weight. (Cosmopolitan)
