Someone’s After Oprah

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

The same crazy dude Keifer Bonvillian who tried to get paid off of selling audiotapes of an employee bad-mouthing Oprah is now coming out with an alleged “tell all” book exposing O and her billion dollar company Harpo. The book is titled “Ruthless” and here is the pitch for the story:

“An office manager at Harpo broke his silence and his confidentiality agreement when he spoke freely about Oprah Winfrey’s private life and business affairs. Keifer Bonvillain underestimated one of the world’s most powerful women when he, armed with clandestinely recorded tapes, decided to write a ‘tell-all’ book unmasking the famed celebrity. Within days of Harpo learning about the book, two men were attempting to break into Keifer’s home – presumably to get the tapes. Oprah was desperate to keep the truth from being revealed . . . The fallout was Keifer’s highly publicized arrest.”

Bonvillain vows to disclose that Harpo may have been involved in “blatant discrimination . . . This CEO not only knows about these practices . . . she condones them . . . Hours of taped conversations . . . reveal what they don’t want the public to know about [Oprah’s] private life, and a business that prides itself on its diversity.”

That’s what happens when you’re successful.  SMH at this guy calling himself a “civil-rights activist”.

    Didn’t someone try to “expose” Oprah before? I mean really now people act as if Oprah is supposed to be perfect…who doesn’t have a skeleton or two in their closet?

  • got one right

    get her stanking ass, one day it’ll all come out and all of you oprah worshipers are going to be devastated. Just cause she is Black ans rich doesn’t mean she is right. She’s a witch.

    I usually don’t have a problem with Oprah, but I do have a problem with those that use strong-arm tactics to stifle information. What does she have to hide that she would make every single employee sign a confidentiality agreement? it’s like president Bush’s criminal record, which is sealed for 50 years in his father’s library. In 50 years, we’d all be dead, old or don’t care.

    doesnt this guy know that messing with oprah is like messing with the mob?!?!?!? he about to go down for real.

  • jen

    I believe there is some truth to this. I watched Oprah in action with her staff and I noticed that everyone was NOT Africian American but the exact oposite. I am sure there is a method to her maddness that can only be exposed if both parties speak up.

  • Harlem Chic

    Oprah is a businesswoman first and foremost so there’s bound to be someone in her circle that’s filled with salty beans. When you’re rich and powerful like Oprah you need to protect yourself to the fullest.

    And puuhleease! That woman done helped too many people around the world and in this country to ever get negative backlash. Trust..this will come and go…plus I’ll pull out mah razor for Oprah.

    Cosign^^^. Besides I was disappointed. Discrimination is the best he can come up with or the worst thing she has ever done? I’m sorry but a “tell-all” book is supposed to have that juicy stuff you know like her be a tranny or something not she discriminates against some. Weak.

    How convenient that Oprah “needs to be exposed” when she has become more public with her charity and support of Black people. See, it’s things like the Legends Ball she did in 2005 or 2006 that celebrated accomplishments of Black women and the school in South Africa. Strangely, when she was hyping the “My Spirit” section on her show and the Angel Network, which were generalized and not geared to any particular group, where was the concern. Remember Black folks: NO ONE CARES HOW MUCH MONEY A BLACK PERSON MAKES, AS LONG AS THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT. In other words, as long as they DON’T support something that would teach and lead Black people to a better way.

    Get real!!She was said to have a personal account on a millionaire&celebrity dating club with her hot pictures and blogs there.

  • AND...


    all the liquor company are white and they cater to blacks.. So what


    You make a good point. All those clothes that black folks are running out to buy or steal are owned by whites and we are steady making them rich. We are feeding the ones that hate us. Damn white folks are smart as hell when you think about it.

    BB – you said “What does she have to hide that she would make every single employee sign a confidentiality agreement?”

    I don’t see what the big deal is about the above because there are a lot of employees that sign Confidentiality Agreements or Non Disclosure Agreements. It’s simply a contract between two or more parties where the subject of the agreement is a promise that information conveyed will be maintained in secrecy.

    What if you were talking to someone about YOUR invention, wouldn’t you want them so sign one? OR what if you worked for a large corporation and left to go to a competing corporation (Exxon vs. Mobil); depending on your position, they may ask you to sign…in today’s world, it’s not a big deal.

    I believe it!!!!! i mean 2 days after the story leaks about the book, Oprah sent her GOONS to get the evidence from this mans crib. Its been along time coming, you dont keep success without breaking rules or steppin on toes. I think Oprah is about to have the skeletons fall out the closet!

  • http://none Lovey

    Please! these folks can’t touch Oprah. She has shared her life with the world both good and bad. This fool wish he had something to tell on Oprah And all the Oprah haters here wish also.. Work on your purpose in life and you to maybe blessed with wealth..God does not give to those he can’t trust…. Go Oprah! Go Oprah! Oprah will always be ontop! Always!

  • persona

    I believe him. BRING IT! The discrimination of course is against MINORITIES. You’ll never see more than a sprinkle producing her show OR working for her magazine.

  • VISTAfordays

    @ LetMeTellYa

    you are so right !!!! I hate when people try to tear her down , i can’t say i am a fan of all her endeavors , but i respect her as a black woman!!! She has done a lot with her life, and helped many of us in the diaspora! We should applaud her for keeping it real and not trying to “dumb down “

  • NV
