Australian singer Kylie Minogue has revealed that she'll be fully free of breast cancer in 2011.

'I'll get the all-clear early next year, and it will be momentous,' the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.

'I'm emotional just thinking about it, but I don't want to pop that cork just yet'. I've come this far.

'I think back to the time when I was given so much information, and thinking: 'This seems like an eternity.' But no matter where we are, no matter what situation we're in, the clock keeps ticking. I will be really proud to get there.

'It's such a milestone to achieve, and testament to the treatment that''s available to us. I'm thankful for everything,' she added.

Oprah Winfrey embroiled in vote-rigging scandal

Oprah Winfrey, known for reporting others' scandals, is now embroiled in a vote-rigging scandal in her search for the next great TV star.

The talk-show queen's website is accused of fixing results against a disabled contestant in a competition to find the next great TV star.

People are contending for a chance at their own show on Oprah's new TV network -- and the front-runners are an African-American female named Dr Phyllis and a young disabled man, Zach Anner.

Anner's video entry is touching and funny, and at last look had racked up an impressive 4,942,500 votes, but that still places him second to Phyllis, who has 5,070,848 votes.

However, voters on Winfrey's website claim Anner's vote total has been decreasing while Phyllis's has been increasing exponentially.

They have claimed that Anner had been leading before Phyllis suddenly accrued 300,000 votes and overtook Anner in the matter of 20 minutes.

'I voted for Zach and he did not get one! WHY? I think something is wrong with the voting system as my vote did not get counted. WE LOVE YOU ZACH!' the Herald Sun quoted one unhappy Anner fan as saying. 

'My votes aren't showing up either. But they do whenever I vote on anyone else's,' wrote another fan. 

However, not everyone is against Oprah-bashing, as one supporter wrote: 'The Oprah I know is such an overwhelmingly compassionate person, standing for the benefits, enlightenment and humanity brought to us.'

'Oprah would never let (that happen to) someone as talented and inspired as Zach. In addition, she would never let the opportunity pass to give a wheelchair-fixed person an audience,' added the fan.

Mad Max star Mel Gibson has reportedly filed a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who is the mother of his seven-month-old daughter.

According to People magazine, Gibson, 54, and Russian musician Grigorieva, 40, broke up in April after being together for a year, News.com.au reported.

At the time of the spilt, a friend of the couple had revealed they intend to raise their daughter, Lucia, together, but the relationship has since become strained.

Legal documents were filed this week in the Los Angeles Superior Court, but website RadarOnline reported that the case is sealed, which means contents of the documents cannot be released to the public.

But the website added that sources revealed there were three key issues in the case.

Gibson filed a temporary restraining order, a notice about a forthcoming court hearing and a notice of visitation rights and child custody.
