Here’s what has our coffee pots boiling over this morning:

  • Oprah will be the first guest on CNN’s “Piers Morgan’s Tonight.” In a sneak peek at the upcoming show, the Queen of Talk opens up about what she considers her biggest failure. She says the movie “Beloved” bombing at the box office sent her into a tailspin — pushing her to eat 30 pounds of mac & cheese. She says it’s the only time in her life that she was depressed. Check out the clip below. [The Gloss]

  • PopEater is reporting that Kanye West has spent $180K on a watch with his face on it. The blinged-out timepiece has eight carats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds and is certainly one of a kind. There wasn’t anything better Yeezy could spend his money on? [Pop Eater]

  • On the one-year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, Wyclef Jean says the future of Haiti is in the hands of its youth. “You see 1.2 million people living in a tent, what I want you to understand is most of these kids that are living in Haiti are very tech-savvy when it comes to the internet,” he says. Wyclef takes an interesting position. Let’s hope he will get things moving in the right direction. [Eurweb]

  • Trey Songz has announced he’s going on tour, again. The ‘Love Faces’ mini tour will start February 11th in New York City. If you’ve always wanted to catch him concert, this might be your chance to see him up close and personal. [TGJ]

  • The fourth season premiere of “The Game” is putting BET back on the map. The show had 7.7 million viewers tune in — making it the number one original telecast on the network and number two of all time behind the 2009 BET Awards. This is fantastic news and goes to show that Black sitcoms aren’t dead. [Eurweb]

  • Star Jones is supporting her friend Vivica A. Fox in marrying a younger man, though many of her friends are “skeptical.” Radar Online is reporting that Jones is allegedly asking Fox’s friends to give Omar “Slimm” White the benefit of the doubt before throwing him to the wolves. [Radar Online]

  • On yesterday’s Wendy WIlliams Show, Aretha Franklin phoned in to talk about her health. “My health is superb… I have two more weeks of down time before I can get out,” Franklin said. She also shared that she will be rescheduling any of the shows she canceled because of her health. It’s good to hear she’s doing great and is looking forward to getting back on stage. [Black Voices]
