How To Live Life The Oprah Way (Even Though You’re Broke And Totally Not Oprah)

How To Live Life The Oprah Way (Even Though You're Broke And Totally Not Oprah)

Oprah, the great television goddess and overall beacon of awesomeness, turned 60 on Wednesday. She’s still as fierce as ever, and I’m more than a little obsessed with her. She shared way-too-grown-up facts of life with me on my TV after school starting when I was in the single digits. She also taught me important stuff like what bra size to wear, what it’s like to sleep with Joey Buttafuoco and how to get out of debt. She made me cry a lot too. Here’s how to live like Oprah, even if you are broke and are most definitely not Oprah. Keep reading »

Oprah’s Modeling Days Might Be Over

Oprah is nothing if not efficient, even when it comes to her modeling habits. When she shoots her O Magazine covers, she plows through three issues in one day. According to the New York Post, however, Oprah tired of all that posing and plans to retire her face from the magazine soon. What a bummer! Without her talk show every weekday as a reminder of her presence, there’s something strangely comforting about seeing her smiling on the magazine rack in the supermarket checkout line. Or maybe that’s just me. And maybe that’s also sort of creepy. I guess so many years as a cover girl just tires you out. Here’s hoping she changes her mind [Huffington Post]

Oprah Discusses Being Childless By Choice

“Gayle [King] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade Home Ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children. While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King. …If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”

This is Oprah Winfrey explaining why being childless by choice is the best decision for her and her career, including the baby she had and gave up for adoption at 14. [Update: As a commenter has correctly pointed out, Oprah's baby was stillborn.] Can you imagine if we didn’t have Oprah because she’d devoted her life to motherhood instead? Or even half her life? It would certainly be a different media and entertainment business we would have and possibly a different world. [The Hollywood Reporter]
