Dave's affair and telling wife Regina Lasko about it; Letterman's battle with depression and threshold for embarrassment; His thoughts on rival Jay Leno.

Oprah didn't shy away from asking tough questions. Ditto Dave answering them, including the sex scandal of 2009 that nearly ended his marriage.

"We were always friends before all of this happened," Letterman says in a preview clip of their interview airing January 6, referring to the Conan debacle.

Everyone has an opinion about Chris Brown and Rihanna's reunion, which was taken to a new level last week when they hooked up twice and he dumped Karrueche Tran.

Except Oprah. She's staying out of it.

Oprah Winfrey may have retired her namesake talk show, and her OWN TV network may be struggling by her standards, but she's still peerless.

The daytime legend topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid celebrities for the fourth year in a row, earning $165 million from May 2011-May 2012.

Guess appearing on Keeping Up With the Kardashians wasn't career suicide. Coming in at #2 on the Forbes list is someone you might not expect.

The magazine listed Michael Bay in second with $160 million during that period, largely on the strength of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

After his twofer of War Horse and Tintin, Steven Spielberg took the third spot with $130 million in revenue, much of which came from residuals.

Mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer netted $115 million, courtesy of more than $1 billion in sales from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

With his new remake of The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer coming down the pipeline, expect him to stay on this list.

Rounding out the top five earners was rapper / producer Dr. Dre, who raked in $110 million, much of it from his Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.

Other celebs making the top 10: Tyler Perry, Howard Stern and Simon Cowell. Britney Spears, at #20, was the second-highest earning woman.

Gabby Douglas' road to Olympic glory was far from easy.

The 16-year-old revealed to Oprah Winfrey on Sunday's Oprah's Next Chapter that she was often bullied and tormented - even at a local gym.

"One of my teammates was like, 'Can you scrape the bar?'" Douglas recalled. "And they were like, 'Why doesn't Gabby do it, she's our slave?'"

"I definitely felt isolated, I felt why am I deserving this? Is it because I'm black? Those thoughts would go through my mind," said the champ.

The teasing got so bad that, at age 14, Gabby Douglas threatened to quit the sport altogether if they couldn't move away and find a new coach.

"I felt like I was bullied and isolated from the group, and they treated me not how they would treat the other teammates," the star admitted.

Indeed, Douglas eventually did move to Des Moines, Iowa, to train at Liang Chow's gym, where fellow Olympic champ Shawn Johnson trained.

Fast forward two years and she's the first ever African-American individual all-around winner, as well as a gold medalist with her teammates.

There will always be Gabby Douglas hair haters, but there's no doubt about who came out on top - and whose future is nothing but bright.

Rihanna still harbors feelings for Chris Brown, and strong feelings at that.HOT Chris Brown, Rihanna Picture

Appearing last night on Oprah's Next Chapter, Rihanna was asked about the status of her relationship with Chris today, and she did not hold back.

More than three years after his brutal attack on her, she says the couple has worked on things ever since his restraining order was dropped.

Rihanna explained to O, "We're very, very close friends. We built a trust again and that's it. We love each other and we probably always will."

The Barbados native admitted that her feelings toward him were so strong, she was more concerned for Chris than for herself after he beat her.

She says they are NOT together - she mentions he is in a relationship (with Karrueche Tran) - but that it's "awkward" when she sees Chris.

Because "I still love him," she adds, "my stomach drops ... I have to maintain this poker face and understand that it's not going to go away."

Asked by Winfrey whether she believes Chris, who the star describes as her best friend, was a true love for her, Rihanna didn't hesitate.

"Absolutely," she said. "I think he was the love of my life."
