Peace Out, Chi-Town: Oprah's Leaving for Good

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Oprah has been in Chicago since there were “hoes and rats on the street”—but now it’s time to mosey on to greener, if sunnier, pastures, like West Hollywood, where Harpo studios are destined for relocation by the end of this year as part of a company restructuring.

The production company currently employs 200 people in its Chicago office, while OWN, which is based in California, has its own staff of 140 (no pun intended there). No word yet on whether Harpo employees will be offered relocation packages or not, but Winfrey herself acknowledged that “it will be sad to say goodbye.” Sniffle. [E!]

Natalie Portman Reese Witherspoon Margot Robbie Jennifer Lawrence will star in a new film by Steven Spielberg, a biopic that features the life and career of photojournalist Lynsey Addario. J. Law is currently filming Joy/ducking the Oscars/taking Flywheel classes in my hometown of Boston, and has a role in the X-Men franchise next on the radar. [Refinery29]

Because Christmas is just 296 short shopping days away, here’s a little something for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list: a miniature Beyoncé, which looks like a cross between a Bratz doll and The Queen herself. Like, even the doll (which, as much as I love me some Bey, is kind of creepy) has a strong brow game. Bow down, etc.
