    Oprah is a fantastic human who has marketed good will to people and that is the secret of her success.

    There are always “bottom-feeder” alike (yokoly) with those comments above who have not graduated from animal to civilized human yet.

    I have never been a fan of hers! I don’t think she is worth all the hype people give her! She is a human just like me, with a big bank account, but I still won’t bow to her! Her life seems kind of pathetic to me!

    How much more money does Oprah need? She has no children, no husband and she’s over 50. Time for her to start doing some philanthropy and helping black women. It’s long overdue. She is always helping white people like Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Rachel Ray to get their own show. When is she going to extend that same gesture to a black person? Oprah is a sellout, I’m not a fan.

    Tammy you did hit on a point she has never helped a black person get their own show beside Gayle I believe.
