Oprah Is, Well, BS

By , Contributor
So blah, blah, blah, 25 years on the air conducting a three-ring circus has concluded. Talk-show host Oprah Winfrey decided to end her long-running show at the perfect number of 25 years in television. People call her a saint, a media queen, an expert, and an almighty voice of reasoning and enlightenment.

She also confessed to being addicted to buckets of macaroni and cheese.

For three years I subscribed to O Magazine and it made me feel like less of a successful career girl that I couldn't afford $90 teacups. Oh wait, who the hell is pretentious enough to have the perfect wine charms or the best yoga pants, or stupid $90 teacups?
Today, it took .18 of a second for Google to retrieve an estimated 17,000,000 results for the phrase "people who hate Oprah." According to Kitty Kelley's biography of Oprah, Beverly Coleman was offered $1 million to remain in her position as Oprah's personal assistant. Coleman walked away from being a millionaire due to the stress of the non-stop work.
However, OpraOprah on the verge.jpgh has contributed to society by introducing leading experts such as Dr. Oz, Suze Orman, Rachael Ray, and Dr. Phil.

Rachael Ray does not possess a culinary degree or any natural skill in the kitchen (all three recipes I've personally tried at home have been inedible, just saying). In a recent episode of the Dr. Phil show, the good doctor helped a woman who was deceived by her Facebook fiancée by flying her across the country to meet the perfect stranger and confront him regarding lying to her during their 10-month online relationship. It was daytime Emmy gold, and certified insanity.
Sure, Oprah flew a bunch of folks out to Australia in a plane flown by John Travolta, and she broke Jennifer Aniston's silence on Brad Pitt. She is a groundbreaker. If Oprah says we should buy tofu noodles to lose weight, Whole Foods will sell out of the stuff.

Oprah will carry on. Just remember America: you're taking the advice on tofu noodles from a mac-n-cheese junkie.
