    Default Oprah Winfrey given the heave ho

    Quit Or Fired?



    Oprah Winfrey reminds me of the guy who says he wasn't fired, and even if he had been, it didn't matter because he was going to quit anyway. Showing that Oprah is not infallible, her show Big Give was given the big kick out the door by ABC and so won't be coming back to your television screens this fall.

    Of course, Oprah's people didn't quite see it the same way you or I would see it. Her spokesperson told US Weekly, "Oprah felt like she got a message out there. It was not something she wanted to renew."

    Uh huh. So this was just a one time thing huh? How come she didn't say that going in then? I'll tell you why. Because she wanted the show to go on forever. No one likes to see something fail miserably. Why do you think she has kept Dr. Phil under her wing for so long. She can't admit now that he is a loon because she told the world he was the best. Rachael Ray? Next time check on the entire family before you sign someone. What can Oprah do? She squeals with giddiness when she says Rachael's name in public and then goes home and abuses whoever gave her the idea to put Rachael on the air and that her husband was a real winner and a real asset to Rachael.

    Now, Oprah could just make this all better by putting the show on her network, but no one would come. Stars will come look like big heroes and cough up dough on primetime network television, but not so much a cable channel that is rarely watched. No one would know how much the stars loved people if they had to do it on the downlow.

    I never watched the show because it just seemed like another self-aggrandizement trip for the big O.

    I thought she did announce her intent to retire a while back?

    Oprah's ego will not allow her to be truthful about her show being cancelled, so she's telling a transparent lie.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    The Big Give was horrible. Though, I will say, the guy who deserved it most did win, and that was kind of nice. Um, I only watched it because my roommate did and, so, shut up.

    Anyway, it was bad. Ratings were extremely low, but Oprah can't admit failure. She could say graciously "I had hoped blah blah blah, but it didn't turn out that way oh well you win some you lose some," but wait, we're talking about Pope-rah, here, so graciousness is nowhere to be found.

    When is the world going to wake up and see that she is as much a hack as her protoges? When are people going to say, "This woman is a sanctimonious bitch and a liar to boot" and stop ENABLING her? She doesn't "do good." She does everything for herself. Even her school was built to make little Oprahs, and is about popularity, not education.

    They recently opened a shop that's like an Oprah thrift store, with merch and also things she wore---her shoes and clothes! I listened to this on NPR, women going "Oh she walked in these, can you imagine!" like we're talking about the Buddha or something.

    I hate Oprah.

    I didn't watch the Big Give, but it was my understanding that the winner did not know he or she was going to win a million dollars, correct? If so, I don't know how they could have a 2nd season, if the participants already know they could win this money, and may not play the game the same way.

    Between phoney Phil, Rachel, and that very strange Dr Oz?, Oprah has proven its time to hang up her Manolo's for good. The Tiny Tom tribute began even her core fans to wonder WTF is up with her. It would'nt surprise me to hear she's retiring. She has changed completely over the last couple years and not for the better IMO.
    as privileged as a whore...victims in demand for public show, swept out through the cracks beneath the door, holier than thou, how?
