Sunday night Oprah brought back the show about her favorite things. You know the one where she gushes over things that she loves right before giving them all away to everyone in the audience. This year was a little different because instead of the normal studio audience, she treated a select group of army wives.
In the midst of yelling, chanting and screaming Oprah gave props to the newest Microsoft Tablet called the surface. Quick to share anything and everything with the world, Oprah took to twitter,
“Tweet, Tweet, Tweet” in my Oprah voice. (I hate when she says that).
She bragged about already buying 8 of the Surface tablets.
If you look closely at the message, it says the message was posted “via Twitter for iPad”. Oops!
That’s like telling me how good McDonald’s is while you are eating a Whopper.
Although Microsoft admits they don’t have an official Twitter App yet for the Surface, there is nothing stopping Oprah from going to twitter.com and typing in her tweet the old school way. This just proves that no matter how good she thinks the Microsoft Surface is, she is still using her Ipad.
Microsoft has had a tough time trying to gain ground on the Apple’s Ipad. The Surface is priced the same as the lowest model Ipad but negative press mixed with the resignation of Steven Sinofsky has made Microsoft’s job that muchRead more...
Mark Cuban proved that he’s not all talk. The Billionaire did his part to help storm victims, donating $100,000 to the remaining Hurricane Sandy sufferers who are now primarily in the Far Rockaway area.
The donation came at the heels of a tweet. Cuban’s friend and reporter for the NY Nnicks, Jill Martin saw a tweet that was asking for help. The tweet was sent on behalf of the Church of the Nazarene, stating that they needed “food and baby essentials ASAP”.
Jill Martin was inspired and decided to roll up her sleeves and pitch in. She collected donations and delivered supplies personally to the church meeting with the pastor, Revered Dr. Mullings.
Jill then began posting her own messages on twitter to her 168,000 plus followers. This got the attention of none other than Mark Cuban who made the donation.

Cuban is #206 on the Forbes 400 and #188 in the United States. Respectively $100,000 to Cuban is like $40 to you and I, but it will still go a long way. Good lookin’ out “Cubes” – BTW Don’t ever call him “Cubes”.
Mark Cuban net worth: $2.3 BillionRead more...

The best of the tweets:
You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,
Dash has reentered the spotlight as part of Clueless’ 20 Year Reunion. You can watch a clip of the cast and how they look now:
If you are asking my opinion, I think it’s close. Someone has to be first. Some comic has to be the first one to tweet out a joke, or say something that is going to get people all charged up. That’s what comics do. My only gripe is, that if it’s going to be you who upsets the nation with a joke, “MAKE SURE IT’S FUNNY”.
Thursday night Dane Cook was at the Laugh Factory in Los Angles and he decided to be the first one to make a joke, about a tragic incident that took 12 innocent lives and ruined countless others. THIS BETTER BE FUNNY. In fact, I’m not going to type it out, I’m going to let you listen to it below. Tell me what you think….was it too early? Was that funny enough to be the first one about the incident? Did you even laugh?
I thought it was close…but not funny enough. Either a funnier joke or wait another week.
What say you?
If Video Doesn’t play – Click here for the joke!
Sharon and Howard were on twitter yesterday when Osbourne sent a tweet in reply to Howard that got everyone buzzing. The tweet which was a never completed stated,
‘money is not the reason I’m not returning’ to the show.
Producers from the show said that Osbourne doesn’t plan on leaving, I’m not sure if that tweet can be interpreted any other way. Stern mentioned the possibility of him and Sharon leaving AGT on his SIRIUS radio show on Monday. He also indicated that Sharon would need a pay bump to stay. It’s rumored that all the judges are in the middle of negotiating contracts.
Sharon originally replaced Brandy (if you remember her back in Season 1) and she also does the daily show “The Talk” on CBS. Sources close to Osbourne say that the weekly commute to New York is just a little too much for the 56 year old Grandmother. She would like to be close to her family. Not only is she a new grandmother but her son also has recently been diagnosed with MS.
THE REAL REASON….
I think the real reason she wants to leave is she doesn’t like Stern stealing her thunder. Howard has taken control of the entire panel with Howie Mandel and Sharon as 2nd and 3rd string cheerleaders. Howard who started off somewhat timid has stepped up and is trying to earn his check, but in doing so has made Sharon and Howie somewhat ineffective. Not to mention anything behind the scenes that any of them do, Howard uses as topics of discussion on his radio show. That has to be annoying.
HOW WILL THE WHO BE RECEIVED IF SHARON QUITS?
Some think the show, which is down in ratings 15 percent , will drop even further without Sharon. Daniel joseph Baker, a former contestant says,
“She is the heart and soul of AGT, and I just don’t know how they are gonna find someone with her character to fill that spot. She’s one of a kind. (She’s left) a whole in the show that I don’t think they can fill.”
In regards to two of the judges possible leaving Paul Telegdy, says,
“We all love Sharon.”
But he would not confirm or deny Sharon’s tweet. In regards to Howard Stern, Teledgdy does his best butt kissing to make sure it’s clear that they want Howard on board for next season. He says regarding Stern,
“He’s proven himself to be a wonderful addition to the panel of judges on the show, We’re thrilled with the performance of the shows and would be delighted if Howard wants to come back.
In light of the recent shake ups with X-factor and Idol and the opportunities of these show to secure new judges and re-fresh themselves, I’m sure AGT will open their wallets and secure another judge and the show will continue without skipping a beat. AGT has been on 7 seasons and each time someone did leave, the show continued almost without a hiccup. Osbourne replaced Brandy, Hasselhoff was replaced with Pierce Morgan and now Howard Stern and Regis was replaced by jerry Springer who is now Nick Cannon. In the slow summer season, AGT has two nights on NBC and even with lower ratings, the Show Must Go On….and will.
If Sharon leaves, she will be missed…..but only for a week or so.
