O No He Din't: Foxx Makes Oprah-Gayle Crack

12/5/2006 2:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey will not be amused at Jamie Foxx's recent riff on those Oprah - BFF Gayle King gay-love rumors (which the friends have studiously and repeatedly denied).

At a tribute to Will Smith on Sunday, as Rush and Molloy report, Foxx told Will, "I was talking about you the other day. I was laying in bed with Oprah, and I turn over to Gayle and I say, 'You know what?'" The "howls" of laughter muffled the kicker line, but the damage was done. Foxx says he hopes Bravo cuts the joke from its broadcast.

Meanwhile, Gayle King wants everyone to know that she was not talking about Oprah the other day on her XM Radio show when she was talking about her "closest friends" using the N-word. "I was not talking about Oprah, Stedman [Graham] or Maya [Angelou]," said King to Page Six. "People act like I have no other friends than Oprah ... I no longer think that [using the N-word] is a good thing." Gayle adds that she's "mortified" by the mini flap.

Guy to Madonna: Enough Already!


After welcoming little David Banda into his home with open arms (and a throbbing crush of media scrutiny), Madonna hubby Guy Ritchie thinks they might want to rethink adopting another Malawian tot, as has been widely rumored. A source in the British tab The People (via MSNBC's The Scoop) says, "Although he loves little David as his own, he thinks they should be concentrating on their own relationship at this time, not adding a new one." What's more, Ritchie is reportedly "just not interested" in helping Her Madgesty out with her Kabbalah, in particular to create a website to help give advice to other members of the tribe.


Beyonce and Jay-Z to Tie the Knot Next Weekend?


Yes, we've told this story before – Beyonce and Jay-Z cause the gossips to titter by teasing that they're going to get married on some island or another, and then they don't. Well, this time, according to Page Six, it really really might happen. "Beyonce is throwing Jay a four-day birthday party, but it's really a wedding," says one source. Guests were told to have their passports ready by Friday for a party on a yacht in St. Barts. But then attendees will go to Anguilla for the wedding at tony resort Cap Juluca. No word from the rap mogul or the pop princess on their plans.


Gwyneth: Lost in (Spanish) Translation


So Gwyneth Paltrow really doesn't hate being an American. In fact, today, she goes all Lee Greenwood and tells People that she's so "proud to be an American" and she was "so upset to be completely misconstrued and I never, ever would have said that." "That," of course, was a comment published in a Portuguese newspaper in which she allegedly said that British people are more intelligent and civilized than Americans. But Gwynnie, who says the out-of-context remarks were taken from a press conference she gave in Spanish, says that what she was trying to point out is that Americans live to work and Europeans work to live. "Obviously I need to go back to seventh-grade Spanish!" says Paltrow, though PerezHilton.com points out that she's given other interviews denigrating the American way by comparison to the Brit way.

Party Favors: Sienna Miller Flaunts Her RAZR ... Eddie Murphy's Moved on With Babyface's Ex ... Jimi Hendrix Guitar Nets Less Than "Silver Hammer" Lyrics


Sienna Miller just couldn't wait to get on the phone with her "sweetie" (not sure if that was Jude or not) and used her mobile in customs at JFK, says Page Six, even though there are about a thousand signs forbidding it. Also, Miller was carrying two purses, rather than the one normally allowed ... Eddie Murphy, fresh off his comments in Europe that he doesn't know who former flame Mel B's baby daddy really is, has started dating Tracey Edmonds, the ex-wife of superproducer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds ... A Fender Stratocaster guitar used by Jimi Hendrix went for $168,000 at a Christie's auction yesterday, trumped only by the $192,000 winning bid for the handwritten lyrics to "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" penned by Paul McCartney. The same guy -- a bookstore owner from Texas -- bought both items.

Am I the only one sick of Gwyneth Paltrow and her big bag of bullsh*t? She always comes off as so superior and condescending. If she really hates being an American, she should keep her bony ass in Britain.

For those of you [Drudge Readers] who have never lived abroad, and for those of you who still think Saddam [Drudge Readers/Fox News viewers] posed a threat to the US or had any nexus between 9/11 and al Qaeda, these kinds of remarks get your knickers in a twist because you're so busy waving the US flag, you've lost all ability at objective thought.

If Gwyneth Paltrow prefers the UK, at least she has the experience to make that statement, the freedom to do so, and the right to do, without all of your knee jerk righties getting all in her face about it.

Free speech does not stop at the US borders, numbskulls.

Frankly, I'd rather be living in St. Barts but my employer sees things otherwise.

What a bunch of tools.

Thank you!

in the know    

Adopting a child is a serious long term decision not to be taken lightly. Madonna needs to understand when enough is enough. Apparently her husband is not prepared for the publicity of another adoption. A marriage takes work and when one partner constantly controls the other it often ends in failure. It would take a strong man to be married to Madonna and still keep some sense of his own identity. I don't give this marriage another year.

I AGREE FREE SPEECH IS WONDERFUL BUT PALTROW IS STUCK IN THE MUD ON AMERICA AND AMERICANS...IS IT BECAUSE SHE WAS "DUMPED" BY BRAD PITT AND HAD TO TAKE UP WITH THAT OTHER AMERICA "BASHER" CHRIS FROM COLD PLAY?
PLEASE SHUT UP ABOUT AMERICA, WHERE YOU MADE YOUR MONEY, AND ENJOY YOUR APPLE, MOSES, CHRIS AND WHOEVER....YOU'RE COMING ACROSS LIKE ANOTHER DOPEY MADONNA.

#2 I agree with you to a point but I just hate it when these celebs say one thing and then turn around (after it makes people mad) and say it was taken out of context.

Seriously    

Yes, whomever loves London please feel free to live there exclusively and
while you're there, stay there and make money. America doesn't need you.
In fact America doesn't need half the ungrateful losers that don't belong here
and leech from the American people.
As for Sienna Miller, what a xxxt. Stay in England you little toad.

Reality Check    

I think Gwyneth Paltrow's claim that her comments were taken out of context is actually a relief. Truly, the woman grew up in a celebrity family, has been an actress for over a decade, and has been in several high profile relationships, yet she still doesn't know how to speak to a journalist? I think it's a relief. I would be much more concerned about a celebrity making such derogatory and insulting comments about my country if it was someone with at least a modicum of intelligence. Clearly, however, that was not the case here.

Jamie a busy guy the last week or so---gotta find Kramer to kick his ass and now gonna get found by Oprah and have his own ass kicked. Never wound a Queen sir cause you'll get crushed, especially if you, by being the first, to dare make light of the O and Gayle in that context, opens up the floodgates to let other comics do the same---you sir will be banished by the Big O.

I know Jamie, take the lead in showing your fellow comics to drop the N word and replace it with Oprah and Gayle lesbo jokes.

You screwed up---I mean the joke is funny but you have wounded the Queen..if you're gonna kick Kramers ass, Stedman should be wanting to kick yours.

"Obviously I need to go back to seventh-grade Spanish!" says Paltrow -- what a liar!!! I read once that she spent nearly all of her summers in Spain as some kind of an exchange student and as a result speaks fluent Spanish. Even if she were brushing up on her skills, she would not be going back to 7th grade level! With her background she could not be "completely misconstrued" as she states - maybe partly, but not completely. Does she think we're stupid enough to buy that line? Oh yeah, I'm an American so I guess she does.

The problem with Jaime is he said what was on his mind. Madonna for sooooooo many years have just craved the spotlight and even when she trying to adopt a child shes hoping for attention. She is just a pub whore. Gwyneth is just another of Hollyweird's personnel who hates America. The list is soooo long with actors and performers who love to suck the money and pub out of America and them bad mouth the country. We will remember the next time your movie comes out. When will they ever learn that you can't do this stuff in any Islamic country and Cuba or Socialist country. God bless America!!!
