By way of explanation, Michael told Oprah that at the time, “in the 80’s,” it was “acceptable” to do these drugs, especially since they were so available in the entertainment industry.
“I feel responsible for what I let go so far,” said Michael. “It just got out of hand.”
Whitney’s mother Cissy has written a book titled, Remembering Whitney, in which she speaks about the hurt she felt at the revelation that her children had done drugs together.
This is a pretty shocking revelation as MANY have assumed over the years that Whitney’s ex-husband Bobby Brown was the bad influence who introduced her to drugs.

The former Tour de France winner, who had all seven of his titles stripped when allegations of drug use were brought up against him, finally confessed that he did in fact use illegal substances to enhance his performances.
“I don’t know that I have a great answer. I will start now by saying this is too late … I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times … I am a flawed character,” Lance told Oprah when asked why he’s finally admitting the truth now. “I didn’t invent the [doping] culture, but I did nothing to stop the culture … and I am sorry for that.” Lance told Oprah that he didn’t come clean earlier because he got caught up in the “momentum” of his fame, and how fans perceived him as this superhero, who could do no wrong.
Lance confessed that he began using EPO, a hormone which enhances red blood cell production, all the way back in the mid nineties. The disgraced cyclist said he would use a cocktail of EPO, blood transfusions and testosterone. He also previously used cortisone.
When questioned if he ever believed he’d get caught, or whether he thought he was doing wrong at the time, Lance was blunt in his replies; ”No,” he answered for both questions. Lance says he believed he was simply “leveling the playing field,” by doping.
To his credit, Lance, who referred to his former wanna-be Superman self as an “arrogant prick,” isn’t shocked at all by the reaction to his lies; “I deserve it,” he said.

With everyone jumping on the wagon to be gay, it was only presumable that Dolly Parton’s close relationship with her BFF, Judy Ogle, was putting her in the same club.
During an interview on “Nightline” Dolly, 66, set the record straight saying; “Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade,” Dolly explained. “We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we’re not romantically involved.”
In fact, Dolly has been married to her husband, Carl Dean, for over 45 years now (with many rumours of extramarital affairs – all men), so I think it’s safe to assume Dolly is still playing for the female-on-male team.
At least one good thing has come from all of this – Dolly has bonded with Oprah Winfrey – as she and her best friend, Gayle King are supposedly lesbians as well. Dolly says; “[people] just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody.”

In an interview taped weeks before his breakup with Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber told Oprah that he wanted to get married by the time he was 25 years old, but when the queen of talk shows told him that he should probably try to enjoy his twenties, and not get married so young, Justin replied that he “should probably listen” to her.
Don’t forget to thank Oprah ladies.
When talking about Selena, who was still officially his girlfriend at the time of the interview, Justin had nothing but good things to say; “I feel like she’s one of the most genuine people,” he said. “She just has a good heart. I can talk to her about everything.” Oh how things change in the blink of an 18 year old eye.
Justin went on to say that he couldn’t imagine having a baby right now despite his mother having had him at 18. He also talked about the disadvantages of being famous, and sometimes feeling “depressed” and “lonely,” but said that those feelings are just because he’s “human.” Yes, believe it or not, he really is a real life boy folks. “Some days you just feel what you’ve gone through. You just have pain in your heart because maybe you haven’t dealt with [it],” said Justin in one of his deepest thoughts to date.
Whatever else he may do, Justin is adamant about not letting the temptations his lifestyle brings take him down. “There’s a lot of people who are just waiting for me to mess up because a lot of teen stars do.”
TELL US- WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JUSTIN’S CHAT WITH OPRAH?
Justin Bieber took a minute off from his mega-career to give Oprah Winfrey a sit-down interview, where he claims he’s “not ashamed” of his main-squeeze, Selena Gomez; “I never make her separate from me, because I don’t want her to feel like I’m ashamed of her.”
Is that true love, or what?
When Oprah asked Justin if they had to separate when leaving a building, the ever chivalrous boy-
toy-friend said; “A lot of guys do that — especially in the business. They don’t want to be seen with their girl, so they’ll make them ride in separate cars.”
Well of course! How else are they going to cheat on them? Geesh!
“If we get away,” the 18-year-old states, “we’re getting away together.”
The young couple has been dating for two years, even though they’ve had some rough patches along the way. However, they just celebrated their BIG anniversary with trip to Mexico. Selena said; “He really is a hopeless romantic.”
Don’t worry, he’ll grow outta that.
Oprah’s interview with Justin airs world-wide on Nov. 25th, calling it her “biggest” interview since Michael Jackson in 1993. Allrighty then Oprah!

Rihanna’s highly anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” finally aired last night during which she pretty much confirmed what we all suspected — which is that she is not yet over her ex
abuser Chris Brown.
While some of her comments were a bit sad and questionable, you do have to give Rihanna some credit for her brutal honesty. While I’m no psychology expert here, in listening to her comments, it seems she still needs a ton of help and therapy to fully recover and move on from this.
When Oprah first brings up the now infamous beating she received at the hands of Chris back in 2009, Rihanna, sounding like a text book domestic violence victim, reveals she was more concerned about her “best friend” Chris because he “made a mistake” and “needed help.”
When asked if the two are back together as its been widely reported, Rihanna, 25, claims she and Chris are “not seeing each other,” though admitting they did spent some time together during her recent vacation in St. Tropez at a friend’s party. “It’s awkward because I still love him,” she said of seeing Chris again. “My stomach drops, and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me.” Wowzers.
When Oprah asked if Chris was a true love her for her, Rihanna responded: “Absolutely. I think that he was the love of my life. He was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way.” Really???
As for how she felt about Chris immediately following the abuse, Rihanna admitted she was “angry” and “resentful” for a long time before she ultimately decided to forgive him.
So where are the two today? According to Rihanna, they “working on our friendship again, and now we’re very, very close friends. We built up a trust again. And that’s it. We love each other and we probably always will.”
In watching the interview, it appeared to me that she not only still loves Chris, but is still very very much in love with him. Pretty sad.
