On the first part of an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired today (the second part airs Monday, check local listings!), Tom Cruise let us down.

The occasionally deranged husband of Kate Holmes and probable father of Suri Cruise simply sat on a couch. He didn't jump on it once.

Here's what Cruise had to say on a number of topics:

On his feelings for Holmes: "I can't even articulate it, to be honest. That feeling, that connection. Just who she is and what she means to me."

On waiting three months to publish Suri's photo in Vanity Fair in 2006: "Kate and I didn't feel any need to [rush] it. We said, 'Why? It's our family.' We just were on Suri time."

Check out more Tom Cruise quotes - from the crazy to the, unfortunately, rational - now.

Yes, Tom Cruise is coming back to The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The episode, which will appear in two parts during May, will celebrate Cruise's career since his breakout role 25 years ago in Risky Business.

Strolling in the Sunshine

"Tom will be doing Oprah's show," Cruise's rep, Julie Polkes, confirmed this week. "He is really looking forward to it."

One part will be shot in-studio before a live audience. In the other, Tom Cruise will show Winfrey around his Telluride mountain retreat.

They will then conduct the second portion of the interview at his home.

Great, insane moments in Tom Cruise history.

In 2005, the Scientology ring-leader memorably jumped up and down on Oprah's sofa and proclaimed, "I'm in love!" with then-girlfriend Katie Holmes.

They later married and had a cute baby named Suri Cruise, who was falsely rumored to be fake, Asian and/or the spawn of L. Ron Hubbard.

Snoop Dogg has evolved into a pretty mellow dude, at least for the past 10 years or so since he stopped getting charged with murder and stuff like that.

But you can still rile this rappin' canine up pretty good.

Snoop Dogg, Dane Cook

Tha Doggfather recently slammed talk show goddess Oprah Winfrey after she branded him a misogynist. Winfrey named called the rap star a big offender in perpetuating negative images of women through hip-hop.

Snoop's beef? Oprah didn't invite him on her show to defend himself.

Dogg insists he would have welcomed the opportunity to explain himself on the show, as he doesn't believe her accusations were accurate.

"I don't like [Oprah Winfrey] no more. I really was offended, because I kind of like her," Snoop told Contact Music. "Liked her. I'm articulate, very intellectual. She didn't even get a chance to even know me."

Snoop, who recently renewed vows with wife Shante Broadus, insists any misogynistic ways he once had are behind him, as his new work "is for the women" and "(I want to) give the ladies something, because I've been so mean and so rude."

You know who could help these two put their feud behind them? Democratic Illinois Senator Barack Obama. The man is a uniter, not a divider.

Oprah Winfrey deserves a better fate than to be lumped in with Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

But sculptor Daniel Edwards - who is responsible for a representation of Britney Spears giving birth and a statue of Paris Hilton - has focused his latest efforts on the talk show queen. He calls it "The Oprah Sarcophagus" and claims he's paying homage to the closest thing America has to a living deity.

We claim he's desperate for attention.

After a stop in Iowa, the Oprah-Obama express rolled into South Carolina, with an audience of more than 30,000 people turning out to see talk show magnate Oprah Winfrey stump for her presidential candidate of choice.

"I'm sick of politics as usual," Oprah said. "We need Barack Obama."

Barack Obama Birthday Speech

In a 17-minute speech to the massive crowd at the University of South Carolina, Winfrey blasted critics who say Barack Obama doesn't have enough experience.

"There are those who say it's not his time, that he should wait his turn," she said. "Think about where you'd be in your life if you'd waited when people told you to."

Referring to the Palmetto State's Democratic primary, Oprah said, "South Carolina â€" January 26 is your moment." Here's a clip of Oprah on the campaign trail ...

Following this address, Oprah Winfrey capped off her three-state, celebrity Barack Obama campaign tour Sunday night at a stop in Manchester, New Hampshire.

"I'm beginning to like this," she said. "I'm beginning to like this because I can feel that you are ready for change."

In the Democratic race, Barack Obama is running a solid second to Hillary Rodham Clinton in most polls, though he has gained momentum in recent weeks, bolstered by strong debate performances and aggressive campaigning.

Having Jessica Biel in your corner can't hurt, either.

On the Republican side, Mike Huckabee recently picked up the endorsement of  none other than Chuck Norris. Vote against him at your own risk ...

What hole? We don't get it. Maybe Karrine Steffans can explain it to us.

Celebrities are sure able to convince people to drink a certain soda or eat crappy fast food, but when it comes to politics, their word carries little weight.

In other words, if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, it's probably not going to have much do to with the support given to her by 50 Cent.

According to a telephone survey of more than 1,000 people, conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, celebrities' endorsements for U.S. presidential candidates don't do a whole lot - in fact, in some cases they would actually cause people not to vote for a candidate.

For example, when asked whether an endorsement from rapper Kanye West would make them more or less likely to vote for a candidate, just 4 percent said it would make them more likely, but 15 percent said they'd be less likely.

Kanye West: Great at rapping and complaining to the media about not winning awards for it; Bad at influencing the public endorsing political candidates.

Other celebrities who had a negative impact on voter choices were Donald Trump, Jay Leno, Toby Keith and - here's an absolute stunner - Bill O'Reilly.

The endorsement Barack Obama got from Oprah Winfrey was a wash - 15 percent said an endorsement from Oprah helps, while 15 percent said it would hurt.

Looks like Oprah should stick to recommending books! Barack, meanwhile, might want to think of making Amber Lee Ettinger his campaign manager.

LIME recently completed a survey regarding celebrities and a wide range of health issues. Some of the results were expected. For example ...

Britney Spears is considered most in need of a more balanced lifestyle. The newly shaven celeb topped the unhealthy list with a whopping 81 percent saying of respondents saying she needs to "live the change."

In the eyes of Americans, Lindsay Lohan (14%) has somehow made great progress in living healthier, while a few others believe that Eminem (4%) and Mischa Barton (1%) need to start making some changes.

Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey is the "Queen of Healthy Living," as she tops the list (at 47%) on the question of which celebritiess have most helped Americans re-evaluate their own views on the importance of living a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. Lance Armstrong comes in at a healthy second with 37%, while Ozzy Osbourne (8%) and Tyra Banks (8%) are tied at the bottom of the list.

Oprah's pal Bono is number-one when it comes to raising awareness for a cause (AIDS). He brought in nearly half the votes (48%) on who has made the greatest positive impact on raising social-consciousness about their charity. Angelina Jolie came was second (25%) with her work with the UNHCR, overshadowing the efforts almost two-fold of Ben & Jerry (16%) for Saving the Planet, and Harry Connick, Jr (11%) for Hurricane Katrina relief.

In more random results; 44% of respondants chose Cameron Diaz as the ideal yoga partner, more than double the folks who would want to partner with Jada Pinkett Smith (22%), L.L. Cool J (18%), and Mark Wahlberg (17%).

Finally, Americans want to spend a day doing green things such as recycling most with Salma Hayek (37%) and Brad Pitt (30%), while Sting (19%) and Daryl Hannah (13%) would have less fans sifting through the dumpsters with them on recycling-with-the-rich-and-famous day.

Whoa, Ellen DeGeneres is the host?!?

Eddie Murphy didn't win best supporting actor?!?

Janet Jackson and Oprah

The Color Purple isn't nominated?!?

Yes, talk show queen Oprah Winfrey was shocked at a few of the results from last night's Oscars telecast. She watched it at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood, sitting alongside Grammy winner Mary J. Blige.

One outcome Oprah was probably happy to see was Jennifer Hudson taking home the award for Best Supporting Actress.

Did Beyonce Knowles feel the same way? We'll leave that up to you to interpret.

Here's something almost as shocking as Rosie O'Donnell criticizing someone:

Oprah Winfrey tops Forbes magazine's current List of the 20 Richest Women in Entertainment.

Winfrey is estimated to have made $1.5 billion in her 20-plus year career, followed by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, 41, who has made $1 billion since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was published nine years ago.

The only woman on the list with jail time on her record, Martha Stewart, came in third with $638 million.

Madonna ranks fourth with $325 million.

Finishing out the top ten are:

The magazine also counts Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen as one person. Which makes sense given how scary they both look.
