Get ready for the championship rounds of the 82nd annual National Spelling Bee extravaganza from Washington, D.C.! Yep, it’s that time when again for kids with strange little O.C.D. memory practices come and kick some spelling booty! Play along and feel inadequate as 9-15 year-olds spell you outta the water! Expect some zingers from our fav host, Tom Bergeron. Hey! Now there’s an idea…Spelling With the Stars!
On The Oprah Effect, CNBC takes a look at how queen bee, Oprah Winfrey has the magical power to completely transform the business world with her talk show. Watch as companies fight to get on the show, and how, even a brief mention by Oprah can turn entrepreneurs into millionaires!
And the belles are just a hot mess this week on Southern Belles: Louisville! Julia celebrates her 35th birthday and starts to freak about her ticking biological clock; the single (and twice divorced) Kellie wants to start a matchmaking business; and Shea informs her boyfriend that she and her dad have picked some possible wedding dates… problem is, he hasn’t even asked her to marry him yet!! Ah, reality TV at it’s best!
