An e-mail titled “Oprah Millionaire Contest Show,” currently circulating around the Internet, is a big fat scam, says the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The message says the recipient has been nominated to be on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” during which a winner of the cash will be named. Then it asks the “nominee” for contact information, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Those “chosen” for the show, likely anyone who responds to the e-mail, are told that the next step is to purchase their own airline or train ticket to Chicago for the program. The authors of the e-mail tell readers to send the money for the travel and show tickets directly to them.

Winfrey’s official show Web site,, has posted a warning that there are several “sweepstakes scams” concerning the show, and that no such program is scheduled.


Halle Berry

Halle Berry says she has trouble reigning herself in when it comes to clothes shopping for her 1-year-old baby, Nahla.

Admitting her guiltiest pleasure to May’s Harper’s Bazaar, the Oscar winner, 42, says her current addiction is “very boring, but I buy baby clothes online. Nahla can’t wear all the clothes I’ve bought, and we don’t go anywhere because I can’t deal with the paparazzi.”

Her boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey is sympathetic – though only up to a point. “Gabriel’s always like, ‘She doesn’t even leave the house! Halle, you’ve got to stop,'” says Berry.

But, it’s not just Nahla and the paparazzi that’s keeping Berry inside the house. “I have a 33-year-old man. That’ll keep your mojo mojo-in,” she declares.

Mostly, though, it is Nahla who has her mom tethered to the home. “Having a baby takes so much from you. It’s the most glorious thing you’ll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious!” observes Berry. “So now I’m having to exercise, eat a little bit differently.”


Kal Penn

Shortly after news broke that actor Kal Penn’s character on “House” would be committing suicide, the celeb’s next professional gig was made public – a position in Barack Obama’s White House.

The film and TV star, who campaigned extensively for President Obama and expressed interest in working for his administration, will become an associate director in the White House Office of Public Liason, reports Entertainment Weekly.

The job, which was offered to him a few months ago, calls for “outreach” with the American public and with different organizations.

“They’re basically the front door of the White House. They take out all of the red tape that falls between the general public and the White House,” he told EW of his new colleagues.

The 31-year-old actor, who made his mark as the pot-smoking Kumar in the “Harold and Kumar” feature film comedies, is one of the few Indian-American actors to make it big in Hollywood. He still has a passion for acting, he says, but won’t be appearing on screen for the foreseeable future.

For the past two seasons, Penn played Dr. Lawrence Kuttner on Fox’s medical-mystery drama “House.” His character exited the show in a violent fashion on Monday’s episode by committing suicide for no apparent reason.
