TABLE TALK AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES: OZEMPIC

Move over Oppenheimer and beat it Barbie, (not to mention Taylor Swift and Timothee and Kylie) the TALK of this year’s Golden Globes was OZEMPIC! According to our spy who attended the Globes, most of the table chatter wasn’t about the movies or performances, but about everyone’s experiences with the miracle weight loss drug that seems to have taken over Hollywood. While a few guests, like Oprah Winfrey, have publicly copped to taking the medication, many of those attendance felt comfortable enough to exchange info about their personal journey. To no one’s surprise, our spy also revealed that the majority of the food served at the ceremony seemed to go UNTOUCHED!

JESSICA ALBA UNDERESTIMATED OPRAH’S POWER

Sometimes a shout out from Oprah Winfrey isn’t a good thing – just ask Jessica Alba. Oprah included the family pajamas by Jessica’s company, Honest Baby Clothes on her annual holiday list of favorite things, causing a MASSIVE surge in sales! The problem is Jessica didn’t realize HOW  powerful Oprah is, and her company wasn’t prepared for the flood of nonstop orders. According to an insider, there are SO many orders backed up for the holiday family pajamas that some customers won’t get them in time for their holiday photos or Christmas cards. Frantic Jessica had to hire more people to handle all the unexpected business and complaints about late shipping.

OPRAH HAS AN IDEA

Oprah Winfrey is HOPING to score what could be one of her biggest interviews ever – a sit-down with Britney Spears and her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake. Britney made headlines with the bombshells regarding Justin in her memoir, The Woman In Me, with the most shocking being her secret at home abortion at 19. While Justin has remained tight lipped on the subject, Oprah thinks she can heal the pain between them with a joint interview. She envisions ratings that could rival those from her chat with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. So far neither Britney nor Justin has agreed but relentless Oprah isn’t one to give up.

OPRAH: BACK IN THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS?

Oprah Winfrey wants to get back in the restaurant business. In the late 1980’s Oprah opened The Eccentric in Chicago with partners, but her TV career kept her SO busy that she  barely had time to enjoy the venture. Fast forward to now,  and Oprah is semi-retired, so she wants to open up a Members Only restaurant in Montecito, where she and her neighbors like Meghan Markle and Kevin Costner can cut loose away from the prying eyes of the public…

GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM HAS HIS EYE ON TWO WOMEN

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom has a dilemma and he’s hoping either Oprah Winfrey or NETFLIX can help him. With the passing of Senator Dianne Feinstein today , it’s up to Newsom to appoint someone to fill her senate seat temporarily until the next election. He has said that he plans to appoint a black woman who will agree to take over the remainder of Dianne’s term and NOT run in 2024 – so that excludes current candidate, Representative Barbara Lee. (Since Barbara is already running against fellow Representatives, Adam Schiff and Katie Porter for the seat, Gavin felt it would give her an unfair advantage if he appoints her now.). Which leads to his dilemma. Gavin wants to appoint Oprah to the seat, but she previously said she had NO political aspirations. Unless he can coax Oprah into changing her mind, his plan B is Nicole Avant. Nicole is married to Netflix’s CEO Ted Sarandos and was a former Ambassador to the Bahamas appointed under Barack Obama. Our political source says that Oprah and Nicole are on the top of a short list of black women Gavin is considering.

OPRAH PLANS TO SQUEEZE HER CONNECTIONS TO HELP MAUI

Stand back ! Here she comes… Oprah Winfrey intends to lead the way in fundraising efforts to rebuild Lahaina, Maui, the historic and beloved community all but destroyed by wildfires. According to a friend, not only does Oprah plan on writing her own huge check to the effort, but she’s launching a foundation and will lean on her countless celebrity friends and fellow billionaires to toss in some cash. Early estimates put the damage in the BILLIONS to rebuild Lahaina, but if ANYONE can do it, Oprah can. She’s a major landowner on the Hawaiian Island, with an estate on approximately 2000 acres (!) and it’s been her second home for decades, so she’s dedicated to making it happen.

JAMIE FOXX IS ORCHESTRATING HIS COMEBACK

After months in total seclusion with a mystery medical condition, Jamie Foxx was recently seen on a boat in Chicago, and here’s what we know: First, our source says the photos were staged and the paparazzi tipped off (most likely with Jamie’s permission and probably for a generous fee.) Second, Jamie plans to sit down with Oprah Winfrey and FINALLY reveal what medical condition he was suffering from. With speculation running rampant and rumors of a stroke or drug overdose swirling, Jamie decided to set the record straight. He chose Oprah because her prime time interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was a huge ratings success, so Jamie feels his sit-down will also pull in a massive audience.
