Rihanna has taken Oprah Winfrey on a tour of Barbados.
The "We Found Love" singer gave the popular talk show host a private tour of her native island when she visited her for a special in-depth interview for an upcoming episode of Oprah's Next Chapter.
The 24-year-old singer teased fans on Twitter by posting a picture of the pair in her car along with the caption, "Look who popped up in my hometown Barbados...Top notch."
Oprah admitted to being pleasantly surprised by the "refreshing" superstar and announced that the special episode of Oprah's Next Chapter will air in America later this month. "What a refreshing surprise she is!... Rihanna interview is August 19th. Didn't want to compete with Olympics! But worth the wait. She brought it!" she wrote on her Twitter.
Oprah was invited to film inside Rihanna's house as part of the revealing interview in which the star is rumored to open up about her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, with whom she split in 2009 after he assaulted her. The interview will mark the first time Rihanna has spoken on Oprah's show, despite the bubbly host dedicating an entire episode to domestic violence after the Chris Brown incident.
Oprah Winfrey will appear on a forthcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The television megastar recently interviewed a number of members of the Los Angeles-based family - including Kim, Khoe and Kourtney and their mother Kris Jenner - and it has been confirmed she will now be seen in a forthcoming instalment of the E! network show.
Glee’s reigning diva will take her appropriate place in the spotlight.
Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the hit series, will sing “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl XLV.
Michele’s performance will preceded Christina Aguilera, who will sing the national anthem, and The Black Eyed Peas, who will be featured during the halftime show.
The Super Bowl airs on February 6, just before the most highly-anticipated Glee episode of the year.

American Idol winner Carrie Underwood will take over the TV tonight for a two-hour holiday special that begins airing on FOX at 8 pm. Dolly Parton, Christina Applegate, David Cook and Brad Paisley are only a few of the stars you can expect to see. But should you actually spend your time watching this primetime event?
If you’re expecting a sweet holiday tear-jerker, don’t. Underwood’s special will undoubtedly be a star-studded event filled with great music and moments meant to make you laugh…but it’s also going to be over-stuffed with blatant promotional techniques that help suck any benevolence out of the season. Don’t forget that American Idol will be returning soon, and FOX has got an important agenda to push.

On Monday night, PBS will be digging into Georgia’s old case files to present The People v. Leo Frank, the story of a factory supervisor who was tried for the murder of a young girl who worked at the plant.
The case sparked national media attention, the trial carrying on for days and days until eventually Frank was convicted of the crime. A Yankee, a Jew, an outsider and a convenient target, Frank was charged with the terribly brutal murder of Mary Phagan, 13. After he was interred in jail, local citizens formed a vigilante squad to forcibly remove Frank from captivity. They took him to the outskirts of town, where a lynch mob waited. An unknown man later gave Frank’s wedding ring to his wife, ostensibly Leo’s last request.

Jon Gosselin is way, way out of TLC’s good graces, but estranged wife Kate is poised to become a strong anchor for the network. She’ll soon be the central focus in a new hour-long special that features all the Kate Gosselin you can stand.
The last episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, which helped put TLC back on the ratings map, airs Monday - incidentally, the same day the couple goes back to court to divvy up their assets for divorce. Kate will be answering questions “about life, the show and moving on,” with the time - an event called “You Ask, Kate Answers.”
Want to start asking a few things of your own? Get on the TLC site and post some questions; you never know, but you might get the Gosselin nod. Clearly, it’s not Kate in the video above - but isn’t it funny?

He’s lived in a sphere, slept in a block of ice, fasted in a hoisted box and balanced on a tall platform. Now he’s prepared to turn his world upside-down. Literally.
Next month, street magician David Blaine will once again dazzle the residents of New York with another one of his famous endurance challenges. Armed with electro-magnetic boots, the daredevil will hang by his feet from a thin wire for approximately 60 hours. Although he’ll have the ability to walk around, he won’t be given a safety net should he fall. Did I mention that he’ll be doing this over Central Park’s Wollman Rink?

As David Blaine has proven over and over again, there’s nothing audiences love more than a live stunt.
Later this month, A&E’s Criss Angel will perform his own death-defying trick before a live television audience. In the one-hour event, Angel will be chained inside a 6-story office building that is set to implode. His goal is to reach the roof where an awaiting helicopter will take him to safety. Will the illusionist ever be able to walk around shirtless again? Oh the nail-biting drama!
That upcoming spectacle will be just a small part of Criss Angel: Mindfreak‘s fourth season. In total, the series will air 15 new episodes and 3 one-hour specials in this next round.
Mindfreak debuts July 23 @ 10pm. See a sneak preview of what’s to come after the jump.
