I read with interest Maralyn Lois Polak's Oct. 12 Inquirer Magazine interview with Oprah Winfrey. Ms. Polak seemed to be upset that Ms. Winfrey has told us so much about her life. I say, good for you, Oprah, because if the media had told it first, they would have made it 10 times worse. I must take issue with Ms. Polak on two things. What right does she have to call someone a "natural disaster"? And if Ms. Winfrey's show is the lowest of the low, what does that say for The Phil Donahue Show and People Are Talking, which are in the same vein?

The deconstruction of Lance Armstrong's legend, which the disgraced cyclist built with the aid of performance-enhancing drugs and savagely defended whenever his dark secret was challenged, continued Tuesday, two days before the world at last gets to hear his confession. According to reports confirmed by Oprah Winfrey, Armstrong admitted to cheating during a 21/2-hour interview with the celebrity host that will be televised over two nights, beginning Thursday. While it would be Armstrong's first public acknowledgment that the suspicions that long shadowed his unprecedented success were true, Winfrey said he "did not come clean in the manner that I expected.

Lance Armstrong ended a decade of denial by confessing to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The admission Monday came hours after an emotional apology by Armstrong to the Livestrong charity that he founded and turned into a global institution on the strength of his celebrity as a cancer survivor. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey's network.

IT SEEMS LIKE Forbes publishes one of its highest-paid-celebrity lists every few weeks, but maybe that's just because Oprah Winfrey is always on top. So what if OWN is searching for viewers the way presidential candidates are searching for undecided voters, Oprah still topped this year's Forbes celebrity-earners list, netting $165 million in the fiscal year ending in May. Yes, it's $125 million down from the year before, but here at Tattle,...

CHICAGO - Lance Armstrong finally cracked. Not while expressing deep remorse or regrets, though there was plenty of that in Friday night's second part of Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey. It wasn't over the $75 million in lost sponsorship deals, nor when Armstrong was forced to walk away from the Livestrong cancer charity he founded and called his "sixth child. " It wasn't even about his lifetime ban from competition. It was another bit of collateral damage that Armstrong said he wasn't prepared to deal with.

She returned to the station in 2007 but had to take another leave after the disease returned. "I'm feeling good. I really am," Thomas-Laury said. "I think this last illness was going to take a toll and I was going to need to make a decision to turn the page.

I'm not sure any woman has ever awakened more beautifully than Nova Bordelon (Rutina Wesley, True Blood ) does in the sexy, languid opening scene of OWN's new drama Queen Sugar , as she emerges from a lover's bed to the strains of Meshell Ndegeocello's "Faithful. " Directed by series creator Ava DuVernay ( Selma ), who made a point of having female directors for all 13 of the first season's episodes, the scene manages to elevate the TV cliché of introducing female characters without most of their clothes.

GO AHEAD, Lance Armstrong, run to Oprah. Better yet, ride your bike. A real man would have held a news conference and submitted himself to reporters' questions instead of hiding behind Oprah Winfrey's forgiving skirttails. If Lance Armstrong were truly genuine, he'd stand in front of a sea of cameras and admit: "I cheated for years. I lied about it over and over. And I'm sorry. " Straight-up, no chaser. That's how a public figure of Armstrong's stature should admit guilt and apologize for what he's done.

Get a good look at Danny Kean - pounding the keys as his dog, Mo, snoozes atop his piano, jammed in the bed of his old red pickup truck. Because he won't be in Philadelphia for long. Gray-haired and goateed, Kean may be the last of the hard-core troubadours. He talks fast, thinks deep, and moves on. He has no home, no job, and no money. What he's got is a 1987 Toyota, three-quarters of a tank of gas, and a belief that bringing piano music to people across the continent affords them, and him, a certain kind of enlightenment.

THE CLIENT was stressed out: Her three kids were hyped about being home from school and wanted to decorate for Christmas, but she hadn't gotten around to cleaning up from Thanksgiving yet. She couldn't focus on the joy of the upcoming holidays because she was completely overwhelmed by her to-do list. This time of year, holistic wellness coach Prakriti "Pax" Tandon sees a lot of clients, especially women, struggling like this. "Isn't it heartbreaking? This is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and most women can't wait for it to be over because it's infused with so much stress," said Tandon, who, in October, was named editor of the Authentic Happiness website run by the University of Pennsylvania's Positive Psychology Center.

Clutches, in all of their sequined fabulousness, have torn their fair share of shawls and snagged many an evening gown over the decades. Enter the pearlescent, vintage-inspired Edie Parker line. Instead of sparkly decor that's appliquéd, these beauties have their shine inlaid into the acrylic cases. But it's the edgy sayings in Edie Parker-stylized script - dope, wild, free , and my favorite '80s exclamation, word - that take the accessories beyond Judith Leiber-apropos to millennium glamour.

Oprah warned her. Not once, but twice. Now actress Raven-Symoné, former Cosby Show sweetheart, sits at the center of a social-media hailstorm that has ruffled her cotton-candy-hued hair and scorched her image. During an interview Sunday on Oprah: Where Are They Now? , Symoné disassociated herself from labels, declaring that she is "American, not African American. " For those who watched little Olivia grow up on The Cosby Show , groundbreaking for its portrayal of a successful middle-class African American family, the appearance of race denial was searing.
