    Wow. First Oprah is in her 50’s. Child bearing years are over. Second, Oprah and Tyra do what you do. I am proud to see two black women on top of their game. Third Oprah has a college degree and Tyra has traveled the world 10 times over with her high school diploma.

    Get that money! I’m happy for both of them. Of course they do some things that annoys me. After all, you can’t please everybody and they are human, but I respect both of them. They work hard and they deserve it and more!


    Its cool to see sistahs doing there thing. With all this negativity being thrown at black woman today this is uplifting. Maybe STUPID HEAD oops I mean SUPER HEAD will take some notes

    I have heard of women having kids in their 50’s…Plus I heard O was raped…maybe she dont want any…Tyra will never catch up to O’s money….NEVER!

    You snatched the words right outa my mouth.

    Tyra is getting paid to reinforce racism and sexism. She is a fool but Bill ‘O Reilly can’t hold down the fort by himself. I hate that stupid ghetto talk she puts on when talking to a black person. How insulting? Ghetto is a lifestyle not a race of people, get that through your huge head.

    Money means nothing when you don’t have the power.

    Oprah is the ‘mammy image’ they love.

    Tyra has the european features they praise.

    Not impressed.

    And please stop referring to black women as ‘sistas’. We are caring and desirable to men who appreciate our beauty. I have enough siblings, thanks.

    Tyra’s mouth can get on my nerves, but I’m not going to be mad at two women getting rich without having to marry someone or have a baby by them. Make your own money is what my Daddy always said. I’ll be on that list one day.

  • Natasha


    You’re so right. Sometimes when you are frustrated, you fail to see the good. There should be much said about any sucessful women who makes her own way without abusing marital or societal structures like child support checks to gain wealth.

    I am proud of their accomplishments and I know it will inspire more to ‘get that paper’.


    If you check your history you will learn that we all come from the same mother. Your mother came from that mother her moter came from that mother ect….. So in reality we are all BROTHAS and SISTAHS or to be politcally correct BROTHERS AND SISTERS. Before responding with a negative response learn you history. MY SISTAH

  • Not You

    All that money and STILL nobody wants Tyra!!

    Oooohh, that was mean.

    ((putting myself in time-out))

  • Natasha

    Learn your history?


    Spare me. Your explanation is hilarious. It was probably the biggest duh ever. And one plus one is two.

    I think people in the trailer parks use the same one to justify modern historical actions.

    Your comment really made my day though.

    Hopefully, you will think about why I may not agree with being called a sista or sister.

    I don’t want to date my brother, thanks. I hold feminine and romantic attributes which should be appreciated.

  • Not You

    @ Natasha

    Oprah is one fly ass mammy! I like Oprah. She’s sensible, she carries herself well, she stays outta foolishness, etc.

    And Tyra’s features don’t look European to me. Her body was, back in the day (big tatas, skinny body), but she’s filled out since then. Tyra annoys me too.

    @ DC tap water

    Oprah doesn’t want any children because of the abuse she endured as a child. She was actually impregnated by her uncle and the child either died during child birth or shortly after. She was only 14.

  • kelis

    I love Oprah.

    On the other hand, I struggle with whether I like Tyra or not. Sometimes she seems cool and down to earth. Sometimes she can be annoying as hell. And about her looks.. I don’t know. She looks cute at times, but that damn blonde weave is not becoming.

  • Natasha

    You guys have to check out Tyra show right now.

    She talking to a man about how his wife is rude, obnoxious and beligerent. He talking about how his wife, who is black, was acting ridiculous over a five dollar phone card.

    She has the platform to change and she is wasting airtime perpetuating the image that black women are angry and have no class.

    If I weren’t black I would be laughing right now. But I am so concerned. This is why Bill o’reilly is shocked to encounter articulate, educated, and rational black people who don’t scream mother-f I want more iced-tea.

    This show is back racism and negative outlook of blacks.

    All these beautiful, successful, articulate black women and all we get is attention when one acts up.

  • Natasha

    Sorry for grammatical mistakes. This is not a reflection of a lack of education. I was just rushing while typing.


    @ Natasha

    I’m to mature for back and forth personal attacks. The big picture here is these two ladies are positively veiwed woman of color who arent on TV shakin their ass for cash. How rare is that?

  • Seghana

    Natasha you are right about some of the things youve mentioned about Tyra…..seems she is trying too hard……but she is looking only…..opinionated and not very educated.

  • Natasha

    One last thing. Tyra’s speech and mannerisms are more consistent with stereotyical flamboyant homosexual behavior opposed to black american culture.

    Who says, um hum girlfriend? Tyra is so RuPaul circa 1997.

    Why does she love exposing herself proving she is real. We get it you are not perfect. But no one thought that to begin with. Delusions of grandeur.


  • Natasha

    @ m-daddy

    I don’t know what types of medium you watch or read but there are large numbers of black women who are as wealthy around the world who aren’t shaking their asses. Maybe you should stop watching BET.

    Because you think it is rare is the problem.

    There is nothing immature about debate. Let’s talk about it. I want the best for us. Let’s discuss our world. Either or both of us might learn something new to change our lives for the better.


    And Natasha I agrre with some of the comments you stated as well but all I’m saying is women especially women of color have been so exploited its beautiful to see women doing something positive. I love and respect black women, after all I came from one


    Natasha, you have made a very good point my apologies for not recongnizing the difference between the two ( argument vs. debate) I seem to have that problem LOL. Your absolutely right, there are alot of women of color doing it BIG in a positive way but the media doesnt show that. All you see the negative. FYI I dont watch BET
