Arsenio Hall returns to late night

Well Arsenio is back and he will be back tonight. Are you ready to see him again? Do we really care? Have he been gone too long?

Arsenio Hall made history in the early ’90s as the first national African-American late night TV talk show host.

Aimed at a hip, young demographic, “The Arsenio Hall Show” was famous for its trademark “woof woof” audience chant and never-know-who-might-stop-by guest list. The show ran from 1989 to 1994 and boasted memorable moments, some of which have become a part of pop culture lore: Bill Clinton playing the saxophone during the ’92 campaign; Magic Johnson’s first interview after being diagnosed with HIV; and Hall’s tense show the night the Los Angeles riots broke out.
On Monday, nearly 20 years after his original run, the 57-year-old entertainer heads back to TV with a new show, “Arsenio.” Where has he been? How will he carve out his own niche in a very crowed late night field that includes Leno, Fallon, Letterman, Kimmel and Stewart? To paraphrase a certain someone, “These are the things that make us go ‘hmm.'”2012: Arsenio Hall returning to late night
Arsenio Hall: I have been working hard in just a different element of life, trying to balance my own and do some things that are beyond show business and beyond rooms and (studio) lots like this.
I left this business for something I didn’t even know I was seeking. I just knew it wasn’t in my schedule from sun up to sun down in Hollywood. I left the show for probably balancing my life — I wanted my relationships to be different. I wanted to be with my family and my woman. It was a point where I felt I don’t want to leave this earth without a kid. There were a lot of things going on…
I want to do all those things that I wish my dad could have done with me. My mom and my dad worked very hard when I was young; I was a latch-key kid. I not only wanted to have a kid; I wanted to do it a certain way.

Kim Kimble is responsible for Lady O’s Hair Piece!

Oprah is wigging out!
oprah afro wigThe Queen of All Media wants to talk hair and she’s getting our attention by sporting a massive Afro wig on the September 2013 cover of O, The Oprah Magazine. Weighing in at approximately 3.5 pounds (roughly the same as a small Chihuahua), Oprah named the wig “Wind Thang” and took to social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) to share her excitement about the stunning cover image.
But leave it to her BFF to crack jokes. Gayle King was on set for the shoot and asked: “Can someone put on the soundtrack to The Lion King?”. And Adam Glassman, O magazine’s creative director, hit the nail on the head when he exclaimed: “Your hair looks like Chaka Khan and Diana Ross combined.” Our thoughts exactly.
In a Q&A for the issue, Oprah’s longtime hairstylist Andre Walker explained how he obtained the enormous hairpiece, which was delivered to the photo shoot in Bubble Wrap and a custom-made, bright pink travel box complete with a built-in stand.
“It wasn’t easy! I finally decided I’d have to make one myself. Two days later I was on the set of “The Voice” talking to the stylist there, Kim Kimble [she’s also Beyonce’s mane woman]. When I told her about my predicament, she said she had created a wig I could borrow. Saved me a good bit of time!”
Oprah, who looks amazing in a curve-hugging orange dress on the cover, debuted her natural hair on O’s September issue last year. But even though she’s working with a marvelous mane of curls, the TV titan isn’t exempt from wanting what she doesn’t have.
“I wish I could say it was all mine.” Oprah told Us Weekly. And the 59-year-old star goes on to say: “My own hair is shorter, not quite so spherical, and a lot lighter. But that doesn’t mean it never gives me grief. When it comes to hair, I’m in the same boat as most every other woman. The way we feel about our hair is universal — we love it when it looks great, we can’t stand it when it looks not so great, and we all want it to tell the world something about us.”
The issue hits newsstands tomorrow Aug 6. What do you think of Oprah’s sassy look?
