Ann Dexter-Jones, the mother of DJ Samantha Ronson, is taking the credit for Sam’s break-up with Lindsay Lohan.
Sam’s mom, a New York-based socialite, says she put her foot down after a party in Dubai at the Atlantis resort after Lindsay pitched a temper tantrum at an event for Oprah Winfrey. Lohan evidently got rowdy in front of the star-studded event that included Kylie Minogue, Mischa Barton, Mary-Kate Olsen and Matthew Williamson.
Ann told the Daily Mail,
The self proclaimed “World’s First Pregnant Man” is once again soaking up some free publicity. Thomas Beatie, a transgendered male who was born a female, taped an interview this week set to air in May on “The Doctors”.
Beatie sat down with Dr. Travis Stork to reveal that he’s not a woman anymore. He says after carrying two children* and making claims that he was a man that got pregnant, transgendered OB-GYN Dr. Marci Bowers performed gender reassignment surgery finally making Beatie a man.
The OWN Network’s boss-lady, Oprah Winfrey, is giving “The Rosie Show” the axe after only six months on the air.
In case you missed it… Oprah Winfrey talked to Bobbi Kristina Brown about the loss of her iconic mother, Whitney Houston. In the interview, which aired on Sunday night, Oprah sat down with Bobbi Kristina and other members of the Houston family to discuss Whitney’s prolific career, their final days with her and what life has been like without her.
Oprah’s BFF has a new gig. Gayle King is the new face of the “CBS Morning Show” which will replace the “Early Show”
King will co-anchor with news veteran Charlie Rose. King will take the anchor desk at the “CBS Morning Show” with Rose starting at 8am daily.
Rose will start the day along side Erica Hill who seems to be the only survivor of the “Early Show” revamp. The CBS program has consistently been in the third spot behind ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “Today” on NBC. However, CBS says their “Early Show” replacement anchors, remodeled set and the loss of Meredith Vieria in addition to the speculation that Matt Lauer will also be leaving “Today” soon will offer a new take on early morning television possibly moving them into contention.
Adding King and Rose to their morning show isn’t the only change at CBS. They also picked up Chris Licht as the Vice-President of Programming, who most recently worked as Executive Producer on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.
“Right now viewers basically have two choices,” Licht said. “They have the ‘Today’ show and they have the ‘Today’ show (imitator) with probably a little bit more broad appeal stuff. Those two shows are very similar but are both good at what they do. We need to try to find a third thing. Maybe viewers don’t know if they like it or not because it doesn’t exist right now.”
Chris Wragge, who has anchored along side Hill, returned to his previous post anchoring at WCBS in New York several months ago. His last day as co-anchor at “The Early Show” was Friday, but he says he’ll be back in the future.
Jeff Glor, Rebecca Jarvis and John Miller will also be a part of the new “CBS Morning Show” team.
