Oprah Winfrey to reveal family secret on her show today: the fact that she has a half-sister she only recently discovered. Yes, there will be tears. (The Post's TV Blog)
And speaking of tears, feel free to vote in our Oprah poll:
Kevin Smith buys the rights to his own film, the horror flick "Red State," for $20 at Sundance Film Festival. He also declares that his next movie will be his last directorial effort. This desire to retire from directing and break free of the studio system ... it's because of "Cop Out," isn't it? (Entertainment Weekly)
Aaron Carter checks into center to seek treatment for "emotional and spiritual issues." (People)
Bret Michaels will reportedly undergo heart surgery today. (Hollywood Life)
Whose films are selling at Sundance? Why might we not see the 2012 Golden Globes on TV? Why is James Franco wearing wigs and singing karaoke? Find out after the jump.
If the Hollywood Foreign Press Association doesn't settle legal dispute with Dick Clark Productions, the Golden Globes may not be broadcast next year. And then how will we be able to see the fake looks on people's faces right after they lose? (New York Times)
Kevin Smith may be buying the rights to his own movie at Sundance. But studios are snatching up distribution rights for other films, including "Homework" (starring Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore), "Like Crazy" (starring Anton Yelchin) and "My Idiot Brother" (starring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and others). (First Showing)
Also seen at Sundance: James Franco wearing multiple wigs and singing karaoke to celebrate his "Three's Company" short film/art installation. (Popsugar)
"The King's Speech" wins best picture from the Producers Guild of America, suggesting that maybe "The Social Network" doesn't quite have a lock on that Oscar yet. (Vulture)
