Written by Vegetarian Star on Thursday, June 24th, 2010 in Food & Drink, TV Hosts, Videos.

Oprah Winfrey is holding a contest called Your Own Show: Oprah’s Show For The Next TV Star where viewers upload their ideas for a daytime show, whether it’d be about cooking, fashion or other issues and their clips are voted on.

Convert My Grill is a segment upload by vegetarian Justin Barker that wasn’t received too well by Oprah’s people. According to the San Franciscoist, the submission was banned from the contest twice–once for using alcohol in the clip and another for Barker using his friends instead of going solo.

Picky, picky…

Convert My Grill shows Barker and a friend making over another friend’s grill, making a homemade seitan-like sausage and swapping chicken for both it and asparagus.

German Erotic Magazine Sues Oprah''s "O" Magazine

O, The Oprah Magazine has named Best Friends Animal Society one of the 10 non profit organizations that will benefit from its Live Your Best walk on May 9.

Best Friends Animal Society is the nation’s largest shelter for abused and abandoned animals.

Given the fact that Oprah herself was named Person of the Year for her contribution to animals by featuring adoption and factory farm segments on her show, it’s no surprise an animal organization made the top 10 cut.

The Live Your Best walk is part of a three day celebration in New York to commemorate the magazine’s 10th anniversary.

Has it really been that long?

Hats off to The Oprah Magazine for celebrating its success by giving animals a chance at some.
