Daytona’s 93.1 Coast Country Brenda’s Buzz : Oprah’s House Damaged by Mudslides / Megyn Kelly Is Pro-“Fat-Shaming” / Lindsay Lohan is Designing Her Own Island in Dubai

Earlier this week, OPRAH WINFREY shared video of the destruction the California mudslides had caused in her neighborhood.  As it turns out, JEFF BRIDGES is her neighbor . . . and his house was wrecked.

He Tweeted, quote, “Our home has been severely damaged, but we are safe, and so thankful for that and for the first responders who are working tirelessly to save people.  We are heartbroken over the loss of lives in our community.”


Jeff bought the place for $6.8 million three years ago.  TMZ says it might be TOTALED, but it’s too early to say for sure. 

The slides have killed at least 17 people and up to 43 are still missing.  Around a hundred homes have been destroyed, and others, like Gwyneth Paltrow’s, have been damaged.

Meanwhile, ROB LOWE called out actress BELLA THORNE, for an insensitive Tweet, where she complained about traffic that was backed up in the aftermath of the mudslides.  She Tweeted, quote, “[Eff] you, 101 to Santa Barbara.  I’m missing my boyfriend’s first date on his tour.” 

Rob said, quote, “This attitude is why people hate celebrities.  Bella, I’m sorry you were inconvenienced.  We’ll try to move out our dead quicker.”  Bella later deleted the Tweet . . . and said that she hadn’t heard about the mudslides.

Megyn Kelly Is Pro-“Fat-Shaming”

MEGYN KELLY was talking about weight loss on her show yesterday, and she shared one of the secrets to her success:  FAT-SHAMING.

She said, quote, “Some of us WANT to be shamed.  When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, ‘If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, “Where you going, fat a**?”‘ And it works!”

It’s hard to say how serious she was.  She did seem sincere about it motivating her, but then she seemed to back off a bit.

Kelly’s guest was the so-called “Fit Mom” Maria Kang, and she said that her husband tries to hold her to her goals by doing things like scolding her if she sleeps in too long . . . and if he catches her eating chips, he’ll take the bag from her.

Megyn wasn’t cool with that.  She said, “If my husband did that, there would be retribution later.”

Lindsay Lohan is Designing Her Own Island in Dubai

LINDSAY LOHAN is back in the U.S.  At least for now.  But she can’t stay for long, because she’s got several projects going around the world . . . including HER OWN ISLAND.

On “The Wendy Williams Show” today, Lindsay says, quote, “I’m discussing designing an island in Dubai.”

She also has a club called Lohan in Athens, Greece, and she’s opening another one in Mykonos.  She’s also filming a British sitcom called “Sick Note” and starting a lipstick line.  Then she can get to work on what she called “Lohan Island.”

She says, quote, “I’m, like, out-Trumping Trump with the name ‘Lohan’.”


Possibly the most interesting thing about the interview, though, is the fact that Lindsay’s weird accent is GONE.  At least for now.  (Check out a clip here.)
