Oprah Bumps Bride for Barack

8/27/2007 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

All-powerful Oprah Winfrey wants guests for her big Barack Obama fundraiser to stay at a tony resort -- and she may have leaned on a wedding party there to give up rooms for her.

Page Six reports that O wanted out-of-towners for the big Sept. 8 benefit to stay at the San Ysidro Ranch, but it was booked for a wedding. "Oprah's people have been calling the bride to either move or vacate some of the rooms to accommodate her guest list," says a Post source. Frumpy Oprah -- click to launch"The bride, an attorney, is not budging."

Winfrey's reps and the manager of the ranch, Marco Perry, deny that there were any strong-arm tactics used, but says, "The wedding party did cancel a few rooms -- but we didn't charge a cancellation fee because there was such a demand for the rooms that weekend." George Clooney, Beyonce, and Jamie Foxx will be showing up.

Spencer – Duping Heidi?


Spencer Pratt has pretty much cemented himself as the "Hills" resident a-hole, so it's little surprise that his feelings for Heidi Montag are coming into question.

Us says that despite what his friends say about the couple being "very much in love," could it be that Spence is -- shockingly enough -- using Heidi to get famous. "Spencer used to brag about how he wanted to be famous and he'd do it by becoming an 'It' couple with Heidi," says an insider to Us.

Camilla Ditches Diana Service


Camilla Parker Bowles -- Duchess of Cornwall, the "third person" in the Charles-Diana marriage -- will not be attending the planned memorial observing the 10th anniversary of Diana's death, after a minor uproar erupted in the UK when it was announced that she might be sitting next to Charles in the front row at the service. "I accepted and wanted to support [Charles, William and Harry], however, on reflection I believe my attendance could divert attention from the purpose of the occasion, which is to focus on the life and service of Diana," said the Duchess in a statement. "I'm grateful to my husband, William and Harry for supporting my decision."

Seriously    

Darn you Camilla Parker Bowels, you and your fugly mug.......You shouldn't go anyway. A little too late to take what is "appropriate" into consideration where the Queen of People's Hearts is concerned. You should have left her husband alone, and let her find happiness with him, then she would STILL be alive!

This woman is in a very difficult situation. She has to not attend a memorial in which she could be supporting William and Harry and Charles for whom this will all be difficult. I am just amazed that after 10 years "The People's Princess" can still cause unhappiness and disruption in typical Borderline Personality Disorder fashion. She had serious mental health issues and it all lives on after her. Shy Di was never shy - just very wily. She got what she wanted - to marry the Prince, then continued to act like a little child. This woman was a bore and continues to be a bore. How sad for her children and for Camilla.

Is this bitch totally crazy? No one wants to see her face, anywhere, period! She will always be the "other woman" and to appear at anything remembering the blessed Diana is lunacy.... No one in any country wants to see the bulldog Camilla... William and Harry always remember the pain this woman caused your Mother... Your father has no clue... Continue to STAND UP for your Mother in all things important to HER..

Miss you Diana soooooooooooooo much!

I don't get it, Oprah who has worked her ass off to get to where she is today and educated her also, is supporting a left-wing Obama who thinks government is the only way. I know this a black thing because what she has done for herself is nothing that Obama believe in. He believes that only the government can save people not people themselves!!!

Oprah, the most over touted person around. How tiresome she is. Yes, she does good work with her money, but America has fallen under the "spell" of this person. Are we spelling the diety gOd with "Lady O" (LOL) as the center? God bless America. America is a great country but sometimes I have to wonder about what We The People fall for. Oh, well. Another fad.

Still missing Diana. The treatment she received by Charles and the 'bulldog" was atrocious". She has NO place at ANY event honoring the lovely Diana. Rest in Peace.

Camilla, it's called being polite. Those kids have too much class to diss you, and since your dork husband made you the evil stepmother they have to obey the royal politics. But NOBODY wants your ugly face at the Diana memorial. Nobody wants you in the caslte. Nobody wants your leather handbag exterior anywhere near the memory of the real deal.

Oprah should BUY the rooms from the bride. Pushy bitch; I am so tired of her. And no, she DOESNT do much charity; all she does is hawk $500 sheets on her show. She turned reptilian a long time ago.

I also do not think that Camilla has any right to be at the memorial service. Are we to really think that she would be there to genuinely mourn Diana? And support the boys? From what I've seen, the princes will be mostly supporting each other when it comes to their mother's death. I'm not saying their father isn't there for them but with the situation as it is, only the princes can really understand what they are going through. I think to take aim at the Diana's personal struggles is low, we all have issues whether they are splashed on the front page of a newspaper or not. Let the woman rest in peace.

Camilla Perker Bowels probably shouldn't attend that memorial service. Since it was her and Cprince Charles, that had Dianna set up in the first place. I mean honestly you guys. How attrocious are Prince Charles adn his family? How man times did Princess Diana mention "there were three of us in this marriage"? And what happens about nine years after her death? Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowels get married! IDK, I am really startign to see a conspiracy here.
