November 06, 2010 (KATAKAMI / THE JAKARTA POST) — The world will soon be hearing a lot from former President George W. Bush.

After relative silence since leaving office in 2009, Bush will be on the air throughout next week and beyond in promotion of his memoir, “Decision Points,” which comes out Tuesday. Along with previously announced TV appearances with Matt Lauer and with Oprah Winfrey, Bush will speak with Jay Leno on the “Tonight” show, have radio interviews on the programs of conservative commentators Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and make several TV appearances on the Fox News Channel, the hosts including Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteran.

The schedule was announced Saturday by spokesman David Drake of Crown Publishers, an imprint of Random House, Inc.

Bush will also meet with Candy Crowley on CNN and appear on “CBS Sunday Morning” with Jim Axelrod. Besides his taped interview with Lauer airing on NBC on Monday night, Bush will speak live with Lauer on the “Today” show on Wednesday morning. Among his print interviews: a cover story for the magazine of AARP, which represents millions of people 50 and older.

The 64-year-old former president will not be out there alone. His parents, former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush, also will appear on Winfrey’s show. His wife, former first lady Laura Bush, will join him on “CBS This Morning.” Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, will be with his brother on CNN.

Bush’s book tour was organized by Drake; the former president’s literary representative, Washington attorney Robert Barnett; former White House press secretary Dana Perino; and Bush spokesman David Sherzer. (*)

Oprah Winfrey introduces her students to Obama



London, Oct 08 (KATAKAMI) – Chat show queen Oprah Winfrey thrilled her students from her academy in South Africa when she introduced them to U.S President Barack Obama.
The talk show host launched the Leadership Academy for Girls near Johannesburg eight years ago to improve education for local youngsters.

And she has shown the project is still close to her heart by jetting a group of 63 students to the States to visit leading universities including Harvard and Stanford, reports the Daily star.

Winfrey even used her influence to arrange a visit to the White House to meet the president before throwing a party for the group at her estate in Santa Barbara, California, according to the Montecito Journal.




Oprah Winfrey offers Duchess of York a prime-time show

(KATAKAMI / GUARDIAN.CO.UK)  Ms Winfrey is preparing to launch her own cable channel in 2011 and has offered the Duchess, who is struggling with debts of £2 million, a deal.

The offer comes after Sarah Ferguson appeared on the Oprah Show in May where she apologised after being caught asking for £500,000 to provide access to Prince Andrew – a deal the prince knew nothing about.

A source close to the Duchess told The Mail on Sunday: “Oprah made the call this week. They spoke in person and, for Sarah, the offer is a ray of light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

“Oprah has known Sarah for some time and the Duchess went on Oprah’s show to explain herself after her most recent scandal. Oprah has always been impressed by Sarah’s ability to pick herself up and reinvent herself.”

It is thought the Duchess’s experiences may help her connect with an American audience.

When the Duchess appeared on Ms Winfrey’s show she admitted she had been drunk when she was secretly taped accepting the money – which has since been paid back – and told the host: “I was not in the right place. I haven’t faced the devil in the face because I was in the gutter at that moment.”

After the show was broadcast some viewers posted comments on Ms Winfrey’s website criticising the Duchess.

The New York Times televsision reviewer mocked her for what she called the “ritual of repentance and renewal that these celebrity makeovers require.”

The Duchess has made no secret of her plans to relaunch her business career in the US where she says the people are more welcoming than in Britain.
