Subject: The Oprah Winfrey Show

Written By: snozberries on 05/22/09 at 6:04 am

Since Oprah has been on for more than 20 years I decided this thread best fits in the More than a Decade thread


This thread is to discuss all things Oprah... in the mean time... because its what I do... I plan to live blog the episode I am watching... if you don't like it that's okay you don't have to read it... hopefully in the midst of all my posts others will find your comments... definitely I will see your posts tho and be happy to dialogue with you about the Oprah show...and all things Oprah...

To this day, I still can't stand Oprah for one reason:  She holds too much power, and is very much aware of it.

If Oprah talks about a book, everyone has to go buy it just because Oprah talked about it.  When she wasn't invited to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' wedding, she was apparently very upset over it.  

The one recently that was just too much:  Only Oprah can have a section of street shut down for her 24th Anniversary show ::)


OK.  I'm done my rant.  Carry on as normal :D

well she had that power for years... before her book club... when I worked at Barnes & Noble 1992  she would mention a book and it would fly off the shelves in an hour at least she's getting people reading...


and she musn't be too upset about the Tom Katie wedding because she had them on the show after the wedding...

It looked like a couple of blocks atleast.  If anything, I'd like to think all those people were there to see the Black Eyed Peas.  It probably wouldn't have mattered if it was Carrot Top's 24th anniv.  As long as the Black Eyed Peas were there :D
