Oprah Winfrey seems pretty much invincible.  I mean, she has everything that a person could possibly want in life and her career.


But, believe it or not, there is something—a fear—that could possibly bring her down. 


And it isn’t what you would expect.


Ready for it?


Ms. Winfrey is afraid of…balloons!!!!


In a promotional video for her latest issue of O Magazine, the mogul admitted her fear.

“I really don’t like balloons, and for my 40th birthday, my entire staff decided to surprise me,” she said.  “And I come downstairs and the entire audience is filled with balloons.  Literally, I’m stepping over balloons, having to walk through balloons and I’m so, like, ‘Oh!  When is one going to pop?’”

 Why do they scare her so much?    

“It reminds me of gunfire…and it really freaks me out, being around balloons.”

A Kardashian Divorce Looming?

 When it comes to the Kardashian sisters, it seemed as if Khloe Kardashian was the one with the relationship that would last.  Even though she and Lamar Odom had a whirlwind romance that ended in a marriage only a short time after meeting, they seemed to be very much in love and managed to stay out of the media.


Until now.


With the latest reports of Odom’s drug problem swirling like crazy, it is no surprise that rumors of the couple splitting are swirling right along with them.  


At first it seemed like that was all they were…rumors.  But now there might be some truth to the speculation.


A source close to the couple has recently told E! News that divorce might be looming, although she has a lot of support from her famous family.


“Her family is being as supportive as possible,” said the unnamed source. “They don’t want to argue with her or make her even more upset. They know she’s already heartbroken.  They don’t want to make things harder on her.”


I guess we will all just have to wait and see what happens.


 New 'Pirates of the Caribbean' delayedJohnny Depp and Wes Anderson


Uh oh.  Bad news for any Pirates of the Caribbean fans who were counting down the days until the 2015 release of the franchise’s 5th installment.  It’s not that it isn’t going to be released at all.  Because it will.  


But, instead of its previously announced release date of July 10, 2015, it is now being pushed off until about a year later.


The movie, which is currently being listed as POTC: Dead Men Tell No Tales on the popular website IMDb, only has one star signed on so far.  And since it’s Johnny Depp, who has recently alluded that retirement from the biz might be too far in the future, the delay might end up making it a no go.


So, what’s the hold up?   

“We have an outline everyone loves but the script is not done...We want a script that everyone's signed off on and a budget that everyone's signed off on” according to an interview that Jerry Bruckheimer did with The Hollywood Reporter.
