Oprah Winfrey has made headlines recently, thanks to a book by Kitty Kelley accusing her of lying about her upbringing, sexuality and other matters.

One way to take negative heat off yourself? Interview Octomom!

Though she has no regrets, Nadya "Octomom" Suleman the Big O via satellite that she lives with a "tremendous amount of guilt" for what she did.

That being give birth to eight babies as an unemployed single mother of six. She said she did it out of her "own childish desires to compensate."

Raised an only child, she said she was "trying to fill some missing piece inside." Oddly enough, they were conceived IVF - no actual piece inside.

Right in the Nads

Nadya Suleman: Just so wrong.

Instead of filling the void with a significant other, she filled it with Elijah, 8; Amerah, 7; Joshua, 6, Aiden, 5, twins Caleb and Calyssa, 3; and the 14-month octuplets, Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariyah, Makai, Josiah, Jeremiah and Jonah.

"I've always coveted that connection, that attachment to another being."

"The connection felt safer with children than with a significant other, more predictable," said Nadya Suleman. "The security. I was hungering for security."

Not financial security, obviously, but that's another ball of wax.

"We're surviving," she said (thanks to a bailout by PETA). "We're going, going, going, just trying to keep up. You don't have time to think, to reflect, feel anything. It is a choice. I own all of the responsibility for my poor choices."

Perhaps the first intelligent thing she's ever said.

While the Internet is buzzing over Gerald Imes' admission on Oprah today that he molested Monique when she was a child, the talk show host herself is also making news.

For the first time, Winfrey has made public comments concerning Kitty Kelley's biography of the mega star. Among other claims, it says Oprah was not raised poor (as she's often said) and that Vernon Winfrey is not her biological father.

Presenting an award to BFF Gayle King at The New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards today, Oprah joked about the latter rumor:

"Gayle got herself worked out with all my new daddies coming out."

As the crowd laughed and cheered, Oprah simply added: "This, too, shall pass."

There have also been unfounded reports that link Oprah and Gayle sexually, but the talk show host didn't address those.

Instead, Winfrey just thanked her longtime pal for teaching her "what true love really is," describing King as "her best friend who always wants the best for me" and adding:

"She's never been jealous or envious of me a single moment of my life except when I was on stage singing with Tina Turner."

It's hard to know what to make of Kitty Kelley and her new, unauthorized biography of Oprah Winfrey.

On one hand, the author relies on anonymous sources and tired gossip material to write about the talk show host's sexuality and friendship with Gayle King.

However, she also broke the (confirmed-as-true) news that Oprah once lived with John Tesh.

Kelley has penned books on famous subjects such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Frank Sinatra and Nancy Reagan - and never been successfully sued for libel or forced to retract a written statement. The author may make her living in a morally grey area, but she's never been outed as a liar.

Therefore, Oprah fans might be disturbed by the content of Kelley's latest book. Especially the chapter that quotes Winfrey's cousin, Katharine Carr. Simply put, Carr paints Oprah as someone who is an enemy of the truth...

"Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches, I have no idea. [Oprah's grandmother] kept a spotless house... It was a wooden, six-room house with a large living room that had a fireplace and rocking chair," Carr says, adding:

"I've confronted her and asked 'Why do you tell such lies?' Oprah told me, 'That's what people want to hear. The truth is boring.'"

Carr also says she loves her cousin and forgives her because Oprah has done so much for other people. But she closes with a major zinger:

"Oprah does not love her mother at all... She gives her a great deal financially, but she does not give her the respect and affection a daughter should, and that bothers me."

Are these words of a bitter relative? Or the exposure of television's most beloved icon as someone that's built a reputation on lies and half-truths? You decide.

Earlier this year, Winfrey sat down with Adam Lambert and Susan Boyle. She's working on an interview with John Edward's baby mama, Rielle Hunter.

But it's hard to believe anything will top a Twilight-themed episode. When it comes to ratings, hot fake vampires trump dirty, attention-starved mistresses every day of the week.

In a word: Ewww!!!!

At various (unfounded) points over the last few times, Oprah Winfrey has been linked romantically to BFF Gayle King.

Now, the talk show queen has another report to deal with that focuses on her love life:

According to an upcoming, unauthorized Oprah biographer by Kitty Kelley, Winfrey was involved with John Tesh many years ago, long before she hosted a hit talk show and started dating Stedman Graham.

The pair allegedly lived together in Nashville in the mid-70s, as both worked in broadcast television there. Why did Tesh, not a syndicated radio host and musician, call off the relationship? The "social pressure" of their interracial romance, an anonymous source claims.

"[He] couldn't take it anymore...He walked out in the middle of the night...he told me he later felt very guilty about it," said the insider.

The trashy book, which seeks to exploit Oprah's fame and private life, refers to Stedman as "boring as hell."

Without getting into specifics (likely because she has no evidence to back anything up), Kelley tried to create buzz around her book by telling USA Today:

"I know people are expecting me to 'out' her. But I think she's just asexual. She's poured all of her energies into her career. And if she is, she is never, ever going to come out. So relax, people."

Yeah! Relax, people! Stop getting so worked up over a story that never had a shred of proof and is only brought up by the least respectable publications around!

Rielle Hunter's 15 minutes of fame are going for some kind of record.

Her story will simply never die, with Oprah Winfrey the latest to help her milk it. She's shown John Edwards a big o-face. Now she's coming face-to-face with the Big O.

It was revealed last night that Oprah scored the first TV interview with John Edwards' weird mistress, a report confirmed Tuesday by the Big O's production company.

The date for the interview has not yet been announced, nor has her wardrobe for the sit-down. We're hoping for that pearl necklace from those hot GQ pictures again.

She's a classy one, that Rielle.

Rielle Hunter and Oprah: An interview not to be missed.

For whatever reason, Rielle Hunter was apparently courted by both Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer as well, but ultimately went with Oprah, reportedly because she felt O “was more spiritual and would get her.” She's a spiritual one, that Rielle.

It's unclear whether she will discuss the details of the John Edwards sex tape, how she slept with a famous married politician and pulled the goalie to cash in, whether he provided her with campaign hush money, or what her future holds.

Regardless, we're waiting for Elizabeth Edwards to kill her.

Jessica Simpson has some words for John Mayer. She just won't be saying them to him personally, as she isn't accepting his apology for his recent comments.

In an interview with Oprah (yes, Oprah interviewed Jessica Simpson and talked about John Mayer's comments for some reason) she said she "felt betrayed."

Her ex spilled the details of their sex life to Playboy, which you likely know, and while he said he's sorry via e-mail and phone, she's in no hurry to respond.

She also dropped the D word. No, she didn't call him a douchebag, even though he is the definition of one. She's "disappointed" in him for the whole ordeal.

Jessica Simpson Fashion Statement

On a lighter note, Jessica says that her phone's been ringing off the hook since John likened banging her to doing crack, and that "I guess it could be worse."

True. She later added that she hopes John "gets his life together." Wow. When Jessica Simpson is telling you to get your life together, that's not a good sign.

We can at least say this about The National Enquirer: it's one tabloid NOT making up rumors about a Brangelina break-up.

But the publication is teasing a false story in its latest issue, as it claims Oprah Winfrey is on the verge of publishing a memoir that will "finally reveal the truth about her relationships with longtime companion Stedman Graham and best friend Gayle King."

Late last year, the newspaper claimed Oprah would dump Stedman and move in with King. Shockingly, that never took place.

Oprah vs. Stedman

Sources say the upcoming autobiography will focus on Oprah's deepest secrets, such as the gay rumors that have plagued her for years; as well as the fact that she's allegedly spent $5 million over the years to control her weight.

"Oprah has long shrugged off the persistent story that she and Gayle are lovers, and that Stedman was just a cover for their secret relationship," an insider said, not actually divulging anything about the talk show host.

Professional, Winfrey is on fire: she's interviewed Barack Obama, Adam Lambert, Susan Boyle, Lady GaGa, Bristol Palin and Jay Leno over the last few weeks.

So far, The Enquirer is yet to link her romantically to any of those guests.

According to the results of a new Harris Poll, Jay Leno is not as popular he once was.

Due to his role in the NBC late-night debacle, The Tonight Show host has fallen from the top spot he held last year as the country's favorite TV personality. He now sits at number-three behind Oprah Winfrey and... Glenn Beck?!?!?!?

Really, fellow citizens? You're falling that much for the Fox News anchor's contrived national therapy sessions? We knew the exploitation of the ignorant was lucrative, but we didn't know it made one so popular.

Rounding out the top 10 in the poll were...

4. Ellen DeGeneres and Hugh Laurie from House (tie)
6. Jon Stewart
7. Charlie Sheen
8. Mark Harmon from NCIS
9. David Letterman
10. Bill O’Reilly

So the list includes a racist at number-two and an alleged wife-beater at number-seven? America really may need to rethink its tastes.

Bristol Palin, 19-year-old mom, said Friday that getting knocked up by Levi Johnston taught her a lesson, and she won't make the same mistake twice.

She told Oprah Winfrey that she's been depressed since the birth of her 13-month-old son, Tripp, and sees the error of her past, protection-free ways.

BP in the House

As a result, she vows to not have sex until marriage.

"I just think it's a goal to have, and other women should have that goal," the daughter of Sarah Palin (who was by her side) said of her chastity oath.

Oprah "bristled" at Bristol Palin pleding abstinence now. "Don't you think you are setting yourself up?," Oprah asked. "No, I don't," she responded.

Bristol Palin is Levi Johnston's baby mama. After that horrible experience, she vows she won't be someone else's. Well, unless that person puts a ring on it this time.

"I have a kid in my life, and it's my full-time job now," a melancholy Bristol told Oprah. "I have this big, supportive family and stuff, but I just felt so alone."

Her mom, vice presidential candidate-conservative TV pundit-celebrity baby pimper Sarah, said Friday "it was a shock" to find out Bristol was pregnant.

"Like so many other parents, I thought, 'not my kid,'" Palin said.

As we reported Friday, Bristol is seeking child support from Levi, her high school sweetheart, who scored a big payday with a nude Playgirl photo spread.

She's seeking $1,750 a month from Johnston, with whom she has a prickly relationship. A lot more than a box of condoms would've cost, Levi. Just sayin'.

By making a belated abstinence pledge, Bristol Palin is ...
