FANTASIA SAYS SURGERY ENDED ‘PURPLE’ RUN: ‘American Idol’ champ says throat tumor was behind reason to quit show.
Fantasia Barrino has come clean about why she left The Color Purple before its official end on Broadway. The actress said she developed a tumor on her throat that left her feeling drained and too exhausted to keep up her nightly schedule.


Oprah Winfrey has pledged $1 million to an educational scholarship fund for the youth of Whitesboro, New Jersey, the hometown of her longtime boyfriend, Stedman Graham.


It’s happened. Barack Obama has met the 50 percent threshold for the first time. It was revealed Tuesday in the Gallup daily tracking poll. It’s a symbolic hurdle that until now had eluded the Democratic nominee, reports Here’s what it means: The Gallup daily tracking poll has found that since the conclusion of the Democratic convention, Obama has risen 5 percentage points in the polls and now leads John McCain 50 percent to 42 percent.
That represents a positive turn for Obama, after a couple of days in which he appeared to have peaked at the 49 percent mark while McCain was showing slight improvements. It may be smaller than several of the sizable bounces of recent decades, but the new polling suggests that perhaps the Democratic convention bounce has yet to subside.


The RNC is drawing less than impressive number for its St. Paul, Minnesota rally.

Venus Williams and her sister Serena will play each other in a quarterfinal match scheduled for today at the U.S. Open in New York. The meeting will be their first since June, when Venus beat Serena in the finals of Wimbledon. Today’s match will also be the 17th Williams vs. Williams showdown of their professional career. “If I had a sister and she wasn’t very good, then it would be just not really a big deal because I would beat her,” Venus said Monday, after she and Serena assured a quarterfinal matchup. Serena added: “I’m glad we’re both pretty good at it, because I always use her,” she said. “If I’m going somewhere and they give me a nice gift I’m like, ‘Well, my sister, she’s not here, but she would love that.’ If she was no good then I wouldn’t be able to do that. And I always keep it. She doesn’t even know about it half the time. I guess maybe she’ll know about it now.”


Tiger Woods announced Tuesday that he and his wife are about to welcome another little one to the family. “Elin and I are proud to announce that we are expecting our second child in late winter,” the golf star wrote on his official Web site Tuesday. “This has been a year of contrasts,” Woods, 32, began. “I had a solid start to the season, won the U.S. Open in an exciting playoff, and then unfortunately had to shut it down after successful knee surgery.” “And now, I have some wonderful news to report. Sam is going to be a big sister.” The couple’s first child, Sam Alexis Woods, was born in June 2007.
