The Steve Harvey Show
No, you aren't reading a typo. Oprah Winfrey stopped by Steve Harvey's talk show to clear the air on a very interesting topic. The Mighty O discussed with Harvey the upcoming all-star movie, The Butler, where she has a love scene with Terrence Howard. Recently, Howard was asked what it was like filming a steamy romantic scene with the talk show maven, where he remarked:
To be able to make out with Oprah, to have love scenes with her and those tig ol' bitties — she's such a lovely and voluptuous woman. ... She's very, very, very beautiful, and that was wonderful.
Word got back to Winfrey about what Howard said about her chest, and she fired back:
Some people called me saying that they all were offended and I go, ‘Well, I do have big breastesses."
Oprah's got jokes! Watch the conversation after the jump! READ MORE

Now here's some talk show development news I can get excited about! My absolute favorite, syndicated morning radio host, Steve Harvey is reportedly developing a daytime talk show with Endemol USA. According to Broadcasting & Cable, the hysterical comedian, who has transitioned into a relationship expert in recent years—thanks to his New York Times best selling books Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man and Straight Talk, No Chaser— is partnering with Endemol and NBCUniversal for a syndicated talker that will couple Harvey's comic sensibilities with his advice platform.
"Most daytime talk shows today that have a comedic undertone are celebrity driven. This show will have a comedic sensibility with Steve as a host who will actually deal with, comment on and discuss topics and issues that people bring to the show. It will always aim to be comedic, as well as poignant and inspiring," says Goldberg. READ MORE
