Today's news you might've missed:
Having her OWN network has been more than she bargained for, CEO and media personality Oprah Winfrey said Monday.
After canceling Rosie O'Donnell's primetime program on OWN and conducting what she calls the painful task of laying off 30 of her staffers at the developing network, Winfrey told "CBS This Morning" that the road to developing OWN has been so rocky, that she might even consider doing something different if given the opportunity.
"Creating a network was something that I'd wanted to do. Had I known that it was this difficult, I might've done something else," she told "CBS This Morning's" Charlie Rose and her gal pal Gayle King. "I didn't think it was going to be easy, but if I knew then what I know now, I might've made some different choices."
Producer T.D. Jakes was amazed by Whitney Houston's performance in this year's remake of the 1976 film "Sparkle," but unfortunately, the actress and singer herself won't be around to see it arrive in theaters.
Houston had just finished work on the movie, about a trio of sisters who have to face the difficulties that come along with fame as their singing careers take off in the Motown-era, when she passed away in February at the age of 48.
The film, loosely based on the story of The Supremes, centers on the musically gifted Sparkle, portrayed by "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks in the 2012 version. Sparkle is raised along with her two sisters (portrayed by Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) by their single mother (Houston) in Detroit when the three begin to form a girl group.
Editor's Note: The post below contains spoilers for the April 1 premiere of AMC's "The Killing."
What feels like eons ago, fans of “The Killing” fell in love with the gritty and well-acted AMC crime drama, the one that had us all buying into the show’s tagline, “Who Killed Rosie Larsen?”
But a few episodes into the first season, the series following the socially awkward but job-obsessed detective Sarah Linden (Emmy-nominated Mireille Enos) as she tried to solve the murder of a high school girl lost a lot of its mojo and core audience. It didn’t help that the storyline started off as something we thought would end in one season, but instead left us hanging with no conclusion.
You were angry, I was angry, but alas, season 2 started off with a bang and after Sunday’s two-hour, two-episode premiere, I’m willing to forgive and forget, for now.
Ashton Kutcher, who got his break on "That '70s Show," will go back to the 1970s to play tech visionary Steve Jobs in an indie film about Jobs' early life and the founding of Apple.
Production on the film, "Jobs," is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his CBS series "Two and a Half Men," reports Variety.
It will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern ("Swing Vote") and "will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple."
Looks like Russell Brand has taken the spiritual high road in regards to his ex-wife Katy Perry.
The cheeky comedian and self-described yogi told People magazine that he’s “doing well” following his split from the high-profile pop star, indicating he’s not at all bitter because “he doesn’t hold on to anything negative.”
“I don’t have to let anything go,” said Brand, who filed for divorce from Perry in December following 14 months of marriage. “I don’t hold on to anything negative,” he explained. “It’s the same as zero-ness.”
