Oprah Winfrey: Wealth Is 'A Good Thing'
Tuesday Apr 11, 2006 4:00pm EST
By Stephen M. Silverman with Susan Mandel

Oprah Winfrey is a rich woman – and she's got no problem with that.

Speaking in Baltimore on Monday at a fundraiser for Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School, Winfrey told the audience, "I have lots of things, like all these Manolo Blahniks. I have all that and I think it's great. I'm not one of those people like, 'Well, we must renounce ourselves.' No, I have a closet full of shoes and it's a good thing."

Winfrey, 52, who is reportedly worth more than $1 billion, said she doesn't feel guilty about her wealth. "I was coming back from Africa on one of my trips," she said. "I had taken one of my wealthy friends with me. She said, 'Don't you just feel guilty? Don't you just feel terrible?' I said, 'No, I don't. I do not know how me being destitute is going to help them.' Then I said when we got home, 'I'm going home to sleep on my Pratesi sheets right now and I'll feel good about it.' "

The talk-show host also discussed an academy for girls that she's building in South Africa. "I want to offer opportunities to girls who have nothing but the will to learn," she said. "I'm going to be opening my school on January 2, and it will be one of the great days of my life to see 450 girls, most of them orphans who would not have had the opportunity for education in their lives, come to school."

Winfrey was the featured speaker at the event, which helped raise more than $1.4 million for scholarships to Baltimore's largest Jewish school.

Yeah so here are those anti-Oprah icons. I made them in about five minutes, they're nothing special. You don't have to credit, but if you do credit the community (& promote it). I am not so great with text icons.

16 under the cutCollapse )

Feel free to post your own icons as well. Or whatever.

Hello all. My name is Caroline. I am the other moderator for this community. I am doing this introduction because I only noticed I was a moderator about five minutes ago. Since I am too flustered & it is too late at night for me to come up with anything eloquent on the spot, I will just re-post the comment I left on badger_trouble's journal when she first got the idea to start this community.

Oprah is a monster. Some of the things she says are totally outrageous, but the brainwashed women in her audience just smile & nod along, hanging onto her every word. If you pay attention you can really see just how out of touch with reality she is.

She does that "Oprah After the Show" thing, where she gets "real" with her audience. Here are two of the "amusing" anecdotes she's shared with them:

1. This one is reported by a friend of mine. Oprah gives away a free t-shirt to each audience member at every show. Apparently, once she got a phone call from a woman asking for a XXXL-size shirt. Insert Oprah expression of disbelief & forced audience laughter here. Oprah told this woman to come back to the show when she could fit into "normal" sizes. Insert roaring audience approval for clear act of discrimination & hate on the part of Oprah here.

2. This one I actually witnessed on several occasions, as it was part of the commercial for that night's "After the Show" episode. Oprah tells this charming story of her trip to famine-ravaged Ethiopia. Apparently Oprah was eating a piece of bread, when she suddenly learned to her horror that it was calorie-infused. Insert audience's forced sympathetic horror here. Oprah exclaims that she felt as though she'd gained five pounds right there! Insert audience laughter. Insert audience ignoring that nagging question, being why the fuck is multimillionaire Oprah taking food from poor starving people & then complaining about it, & how can she possibly worry about her superficial weight issues while witnessing such devastation caused by malnourishment?

I will gladly join your anti-Oprah coalition. Actually, I'm off to make some anti-Oprah icons right now. Keep fighting the good fight.

Er, yeah, so those icons... still "working" on them. I swear they will exist one day.

Anyway. Just wanted to contribute my voice & help this community along. Christine, I know this is very much your community & I am honored that you have made me a mod. I allowed the last post just because I was the first one to get the submission notification, & because I thought it was a very valid point. If you'd like me to leave the submissions up to you, I will be glad to do so, but I'm under the impression that the posts are moderated just to keep out Her Worship's many brainwashed defenders.

Oh & you should post your poem.

Anyone who saw Dave Chappelle interviewed by James Lipton on Inside the Actor Studio + his interview by Oprah should be able to clearly see how abysmal she is at interviewing guests. All she does now is "paint by numbers". She may have once had talent interviewing celebrities, but that talent remains in hibernation inside a woman who has amassed vast wealth and the typical laziness that goes along with it. Her crackerjack staff of hopeful media players assembles the most relevant questions and she just recites the words.

In a way, I think of her as the most lucky woman in showbiz. Being a fan of hers has become so commonplace in the closeted racist suburban mother that she can do no wrong even when she fucks up. One of Howard Stern's staff members recently hit the streets to find female Oprah fans, setting out to discover what it would take to thwart their allegiance. "Oprah recently called an intern a filthy Jew. Does this change your opinion of her?" - just as an example, not a direct quote. (He was more creative.) He was hard-pressed to find one woman that did not immediately forgive her, and also offer up a justification for his [fictional] claim.

I feel that she is a worthless, but highly fortunate champion of guilty American white women. So do we blame her, or them?

Thank you for joining the community and giving me a little more hope in humanity. As maintainer, I will try my best to uphold this community as best I can. I will be electing fellow moderators if this group grows large enough as I cannot keep track of it as much as I'd like to. Be sure to tell your friends and put input into what you would like to see in the community.

Have an Oprah-Hating Day!

Maintainer Christine

P.S. I'm using this layout because I thought it was really funny.
