Oprah Winfrey is one seriously generous boss and her staffers are reaping the benefits.

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Oprah sure knows how to treat her employees well. As a token of thanks to her O magazine staff for making her publication successful over the past 10 years, the media mogul has given each one of her staffers an iPad and a bonus check for $10,000. The talk show host isn’t the only generous boss in showbiz – rumor has it Simon Cowell gave his crew designer luggage filled with $750 in cash upon his departure from American Idol last month.

HOLLYWOOD – Sizzling starlet Megan Fox admits donning a skin-tight corset in her new flick, Jonah Hex, was awfully restraining. The actress – who urged the wardrobe department to make the corset “as tight as it could possibly go” on her body – says she couldn’t eat in the get-up for fear of her stomach expanding inside. Fox made the fatal mistake of drinking a mocha with whipped cream on set one day and confesses, “That was a really bad idea.”

HOLLYWOOD – Hollywood’s hottest young stars have teamed up as the new, fresh faces of an “Op Clothing” brand campaign. The hip ads – hitting magazines like Seventeen and Cosmopolitan this fall – will feature TV favorites Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith from Glee, Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr, 90210’s Trevor Donovan, and singer Cassie hanging out and modeling the laid-back threads.

LOS ANGELES – This Sunday (Jun. 20), American Idol winner Lee DeWyze and runner-up Crystal Bowersox will participate in a live chat with Idol fans on Americanidol.com/tour/live_chat. The singers will log on at 4:30 PM PT – during a break from their American Idol Live! tour rehearsals – and answer questions online. Fans will also have the chance to chat with other season nine stars like Casey James, Aaron Kelly, Siobhan Magnus, Didi Benami, and Andrew Garcia.
