Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson ,14,  will sit down with Oprah for an interview on Oprah's Next Chapter this coming Sunday.  Paris is growing into a lovely, young lady and she will speak to Oprah about her late father and growing up as a teenager since his death in 2009.  In a promo, Paris says:



"It never gets easier," Paris says in a promotional spot aired by OWN, which also shows Winfrey asking if Michael Jackson wanted her to have "a quote `normal' life."
Paris and her brother Prince and Blanket were very sheltered as children, but they have been in the public spotlight since the passing of their father, Michael.




Oprah Winfrey OWNS PINK SLIPPERS and Passed Them Out to ROSIE O’DONNELL & 30 Others

Oprah Winfrey OWNS PINK SLIPPERS and Passed Them Out to ROSIE O'DONNELL & 30 Others





Oprah's OWN Network announced Friday that Rosie O'Donnell got the pink slip and now it turns out that 30 other employees at OWN Network have received their pink slips as well.  The network has been struggling in the ratings since its inception and so has "The Rosie O'Donnell Show".  Reports had surfaced previously that there were problems behind the scenes of the Rosie Show.  


TMZ reports people from at least three departments got the ax including two high ranking executives with many years of experience. The firings were said to be done "respectfully" with each person being called in individually and explained the situation face to face.  Sources said employees drank beer on Friday to celebrate the firing of Rosie.  


Many of the staff members of the Rosie Show called working conditions at the show a "hell hole".  Radaronline is reporting:


 "Winfrey did call Rosie to tell her that the show was being canceled and "it was a very strained conversation, obviously," according to a source close to the situation. Oprah wanted to handle the announcement of the cancelation in a professional and dignified manner. Rosie thanked Oprah for the opportunity and ended the conversation very abruptly. OWN's public relations team and Rosie's publicist handled the language in the press release. Rosie didn't like the initial language of the press release because she felt that it placed sole responsibility of the failure of the show on her. Oprah didn't need to get Rosie's input or approval for the press release, but she was trying to be gracious. Up until the moment that the press release was sent out, Rosie wanted changes made, but Oprah instructed the release to go out, because it needed to go out, and she was just over "the drama".


Word is now that the two are no longer speaking and no longer friends.


Oprah's Press Release Statement read:


'I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey.  'She has been an incredible partner, working to deliver the best possible show every single day. As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience.  'I'm grateful to Rosie and the dedicated Rosie Show team for giving it their all.'
Donald Trump gave his two sense about the situation stating on twitter:
"Rosie O'Donnell has failed again. Her ratings were abysmal and Oprah canceled her on Friday night".
