    Default Oprah Winfrey to Embark on Eight-City 'Empowerment' Tour

    Oprah Winfrey is heading for your hometown.

    The media mogul, 60, will embark on an eight-city "The Life You Want" tour in September for conferences focusing on empowerment, resilience and authenticity.

    But a visit from Oprah won't come cheap. Tickets start at $99 and go all the way up to $999 for the VIP package that includes a meet-and-greet with Winfrey, herself.

    "It's about living the life you want, because a great percentage of the population is living a life that their mother wanted, that their husband wanted, that they thought or heard they wanted," Winfrey explained to The Hollywood Reporter.




    Venues in participating cities Atlanta; Auburn Hills, Mich.; Houston; Miami; Newark, N.J.; Seattle; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington are expected to fill 18,000 seats. Tickets can be purchased starting April 7 on Oprah's website.

    Winfrey will lead the discussion on Friday, followed by a selection of hand-picked speakers on Saturday, including Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, pastor Rob Bell, OWN star Iyanla Vanzant, and, depending on the city, spiritual guru Deepak Chopra.

    Oh good grief. The life I want is not spending $999 on a VIP package.

    Is it just me or does anyone else get unreasonably irked anytime talk turns to empowerment, resilience and authenticity? You can just tell the place'll be chock-full of the most insufferable navel-gazers around who secretly fantasize they'll end up just like the main character in Eat, Pray Love. I'm gagging just thinking about it.

    Anytime I hear the words "I need to be my authentic self" I want to reach out and slap the person. Hard.

    And if it bombs, we'll hear stories of her huffing mac & cheese again. This time Oprah, but bacon and skrimps in it.

    I'd like to have an eight days off of work and life empowerment trip. Oops, I live in the real world.

    I used to clean houses on the side. One of my clients was a sweet social worker with a rich husband. They were both great people. Anyway she went to Seattle I believe, to see Oprah about 14 years ago. She described it like Oprah was GOD or something. It was almost cultish sounding. She bought every crap thing they were selling. I thought it was very weird for a seemingly sane woman to go so nuts over Oprah.

    I liked original Oprah, but the later years Oprah just became insufferable

    Darn, I could only see Oprah Winfrey to Embark on before opening the thread and was hoping it would continue Mission to Mars.

    She really is unbearable. Maybe she's touring because she needs money. Why won't she go the fuck away?
