The big question: What's Oprah, right, doing for the inauguration? We told you that the multimedia queen was scouting D.C. locales from which to broadcast her show; yesterday she told Access Hollywood she's rented the Kennedy Center Opera House. The taping will be Jan. 19, and Ms. Winfrey is handling her own ticket sales (details soon on her Web site), so don't call the KenCen. Unclear whether she's cramming a whole week's worth of shows into that one-night rental for $26,370, the standard corporate rate.
So that's settled ..... now, where's the party? Her former chef Art Smith just opened Art and Soul restaurant on Capitol Hill and, hmm, what do you know, they're not taking reservations Jan. 18-21. "Closed for private events," they said. Oprah's private events? They say no, but if it were true could they say yes? We'll keep looking....
