Oprah Winfrey has been making all kinds of headlines recently -- starring alongside Forest Whitaker in "The Butler," recounting an alleged incident of shopping-related racism in Switzerland, and wearing a ginormous Afro wig on the September cover of O magazine.  It turns out the 3.5-pound wig -- which looked about 10 times bigger than her hairstyle at "The Butler's" Los Angeles premiere, above -- was created by L.A. hairstylist Kim Kimble, star of the WE-TV reality show "L.A. Hair." [Chicago Sun-Times]
