Looks like Oprah might have her own brand of lemonade before BeyoncéOprah Winfrey has filed paperwork for a trademark for hundreds of food products that will be collectively known as Oprah’s Kitchen. The applications “cover a supermarket’s worth of products,” including “basic staples like dairy, meat, fish, processed and preserved foods, spices, juices, water, lemonade, baked goods, [and] fresh fruit and vegetables, but also specialty items such as cut flowers, beer and energy drinks.”
 
A schoolteacher from Las Vegas has been hit with a felony charge over the theft of more than 20 cases of rare and expensive pinot noir from the World of Pinot Noir event in Goleta, California, on March 4. Heather Avner Ogle, has been charged with grand theft after security footage proved that she was directly responsible for the disappearance of more than $10,000 worth of wine, including bottles individually worth four figures. Ogle is also suspected of stealing wine from a separate winery event on a different date, according to the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s office. Ogle, who is scheduled to be arraigned on July 6, faces up to three years in county jail.
