Poor Oprah. She’s got it rough.
According to a recent write-up by The New York Times, in addition to her current career struggles Winfrey recently had a health scare:
Ms. Winfrey, 58, has shown some signs of strain. She arrived at the conference with faint shadows under her eyes and announced to her best friend, Gayle King, and the audience simultaneously that she had a breast cancer scare the week before. (It was ultimately a false alarm.) When Ms. King grew visibly upset, one woman chided Ms. Winfrey for not telling her friend ahead of time and ordered her to apologize to Ms. King — all before an audience. Ms. Winfrey also did not hide her dissatisfaction with the criticism she had faced. She told the audience, “the press tried to cut me off at the knees” in its coverage of OWN, and bristled at questions about the challenges her magazine confronted.
“I don’t care what the form is,” Ms. Winfrey said with the conviction of a preacher. “I care about what the message is.”
Ooooh she so sensitive… Just think if the press hadn’t been so critical, she wouldn’t be going as hard as she has been lately and we’d still be skipping over the OWN network, riiiiight.
But on a serious note, we’re glad Oprah doesn’t have cancer. Take care of yourself money bags! You can’t spend it if you’re gone.
