Oprah’s ongoing weight drama has reached a new level: Medical experts tell the National Enquirer that unless she has her thyroid removed to control her weight, she only has 3 years to live. “She can't face another round of strict dieting and rigorous exercise, and she fears surgery is the only way out,” a family source says. Elsewhere:

  • Apparently Lindsay Lohan ex Samantha Ronson has trouble controlling herself around nude women. At a recent strip-club opening, strippers “were told she’s so girl-crazy, she can’t concentrate if we strip” and asked to wait until she completed her set, a source tells the New York Post.
  • Naomi Campbell may trade the catwalk for motherhood, the Mirror reports. “In terms of fashion shows I don’t really see myself doing every show everywhere,” the 25-year veteran told Hello!, adding, “I’d like to be a mother one day.”
  • John Travolta will be called to testify in the extortion case revolving around the January death of his son Jett, E! reports. The case is set to begin Sept. 21.
