Some geezer named Herman Rosenblat pulled a fast one on Oprah
Oprah Winfrey called Herman Rosenblat’s tale of how he met his wife in a concentration camp “the single greatest love story” she’d ever heard. Only problem — it isn’t true.
Rosenblat, who survived the Holocaust as a young boy, had written a memoir telling the story of meeting his wife of 50 years when she was a farm girl who tossed apples over the fence at a concentration camp. Then, claimed Herman, he met Mrs. R. 12 years later on a blind date. Well, lovely though it was, the story was made up, and now the memoir is being yanked — and Oprah is once again red-faced over a story she championed very publicly. Oprah gushed over James Frey’s alleged memoir “A Million LIttle Pieces,” only to find it was faked.
Damn. With all those stacks, can’t Oprah afford to get some top notch fact checkers to follow up with this sh*t before she starts drooling all over these freakin’ books on her show?? Time to regroup O.
