HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Oprah Winfrey is getting out of the talk show business to run the Oprah Winfrey Network, OWN. If you think you could do her job, then Oprah Winfrey wants to make you a star with her nationwide talent search. And the best part is, no special skills are required, aside from a sparkling personality and a killer idea.  And in true reality-show tradition, the search will also hold open casting calls at Kohl's department stores in major cities.

Vanessa Williams is headed to Wisteria Lane next fall on Desperate Housewives. ABC says she'll play a "wicked new housewife" as the series enters its seventh season. She starred in the recently concluded ABC series Ugly Betty.

What a roller coaster of a ride for the Travoltaʻs:  Kelly Preston is pregnant. She and husband John Travolta, who lost their son Jett in January of last year and their dogs in an airport accident days ago, updated their official site Tuesday with the following news: "It's impossible to keep a secret... especially one as wonderful as this. We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family. Love, John, Kelly and Ella." Kelly is 47 years old.
