A man who lives near Oprah Winfrey’s new property above Telluride, Colorado, is suing her for allegedly blocking access to hiking trails open to neighbors for decades.

Retired physicist Charles D. Goodman claims Winfrey’s Yellow Brick Road company, the property’s former owners and the town of Mountain Village made a secret deal to close access to the trails that cut across the property purchased for $10.9 million in March. The Denver Post reported that the former owners, Hoyt and Carol Barnett, asked for a correction to property records shortly before selling the land.

Meanwhile, Winfrey, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Michael Douglas surprised Barbara Walters on Thursday as the legendary newswoman taped her final edition of The View to end a five-decade career on television. The tribute airs Friday on ABC at 11 a.m.

Lost and found

Casey Kasem is a missing person no more. The legendary radio personality was located in Washington state on Thursday, three days after a Los Angeles judge expressed concerns about the ailing radio host’s whereabouts and safety amid a dispute between his wife and children from another marriage.

Teenage dream

Can you envision Robin Wright as sulking Samantha in Sixteen Candles? That’s a tough one. The House of Cards star tells Town and Country that “It was always down to the wire between me and Molly Ringwald, and Molly always got the part.” Being in The Princess Bride, Wright’s first film role, cemented her celeb status, even though she was nervous at the time. “I did not act. It was mostly telling myself, ‘Don’t be an idiot in front of Mandy Patinkin and Christopher Guest.’ And Cary [Elwes] was so good looking. I was convinced we were going to be married.”

Toughening up

Marc Anthony was bullied, he tells the latest issue of Men’s Fitness. The salsa star, who grew up in New York City, tells the mag: “I got smacked around early on, and it was hard, but to me it was part of the game. ... Those people who picked on me probably got their ass kicked in the present day.” Even his father was tough on him: “My dad would tell me, ‘Son, I’m ugly, and you’re ugly. Work on your personality.’ ”

In the courtroom

Former Scandal star Columbus Short has pleaded not guilty to felony battery for a fight that seriously injured a man at a West Hollywood restaurant earlier this year. The actor appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Thursday for his arraignment on the charge.

The case is one of several involving Short and allegations of violence. He faces a misdemeanor spousal battery case and his estranged wife has a temporary restraining order against him.

The actor’s attorney has said Short will contest the restraining order but it will require a lengthy evidentiary hearing.

New troubles

Olivia Newton-John's daughter Chloe Lattanzi is having more issues. The 29-year-old model revealed she fell off the wagon on Instagram. “For anyone out there struggling with addiction. I feel you,” she writes amid seductive pictures. “Keep your sobriety. You never regret not drinking.” Lattanzi, whose father is Olivia’s ex husband, Xanadu actor Matt Lattanzi, entered rehab last year allegedly for mixing alcohol with prescription meds.
