Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by Nobody: 12:29pm On Feb 01, 2008
Oprah Winfrey as we all believe is a very influential figure in the world of today. So many young girls and women look up to her. I for one admire her struggle and achievements but I've a got an issue her.

I believe oprah is a HYPOCRITE! and a big one at that. these are my thoughts:

a) oprah seems to have problems with rappers and hip hop or may i say 'black lifestyle' even though she denies. on several occassions she has over looked rappers like ice cube, ludacris. ice cude was the main actor/cast in barbersshop but an invite was sent to eve and other casts of the hit comedy film. ludacris was denied an invite but other casts of a movie (cant remember the name of the movie) in which he was in were invited.

b) oprah has never been married yet she tells pple how to run and manage there home. this is like a porn star going to a virgin for advise on sex. i watched a show in which she blasted this guy for cheating on his wife with a family friend. i do not support cheating but its bad enough coming on national tv thats watched world wide to admit cheating on ur wife and ask for forgiveness. but to have an unmarried person talk to u and tell u how to run ur home is 'a no goer' for me.

c) oprah preaches 'no sex b4 marriage' but u cant tell me that oprah has been living with that guy for God knows how long without sex. porkies if u believe otherwise.

Also has any one noticed that a substantial number of guests she brings to her show to talk about family issues are either single or divorced? with the exception of Dr Phil

this is not a hate thread but just my opinion. the list goes on. these are the obvious ones. after watching the show in which she blasted the guy national tv for cheating i began to look at her in a different way.


does anyone agree or have a different view? Disscuss landers!

Her show is so annoying and at times just darn irritating. The episode where she invited diff women to talk about the downside of motherwood was the one that made me dislike her and her show. Trying to manipulate women allover the world not to have kids becos she doesnt. Just cant stand that show.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by iice(f): 2:43am On Feb 07, 2008
It's a mixture for me. . .sometimes i enjoy her shows, other times, am only irritated.  She can be patronizing and sure she has alot of influence, especially on the millions who have no mind of their own.  Drones. . .i shall wait for the golden robots to come take me now tongue tongue
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by bgees(m): 5:22pm On Feb 07, 2008
OW(oprah winfrey) is extremely feminist,not only that ,i think she has a problem with the black youth.
she opened an all girl- school in SA, BUT what about the young male child that might end up on negative side of the society.
remember when she had eve on her show,that interview was more like a goodmother-bad daughter interview,esp when she asked about eve's tatoo.
truly,she dislikes hiphop in general,some say its becos of the violence ,chauvinism it promotes.BUT, she has hosted gay perverts, child molesters,rapist,unfaithful couples and any other social demons u can think of .are the gangsters -turned -rappers not better than these people. oprah winfrey is an idiot.

you might also notice that she in some way trying to promote the occurence of single moms,but what she dosent understand is that , SINGLE-PARENT FAMILIIES WILL BREED MORE PROSTITUTES,MORE GANGSTERS,MORE DRUG ADDICTS AND MORE IMPORTANTLY MORE RAPISTS THAT WOULD RAPE MORE FUTURE OPRAH WINFREYS.


even our own funmi iyanda wants to follow in her steps. saying 'I DONT NEED A MAN' on her nta new dawn show.
they have had problems with men, but all men are not the same. stop encouraging other innocent young ladies on the idea of an 'independent female'.they come to their shows and proclaim it but at night,when its cold,they are lonely,they cry on their pillows and they end up playing with the Love Machine.

for all these,i dislike her.

thats the portion i agree with 100%, the only way to preach marriage and co. is my practising it yurself, annoys me when I see an unmarried indidual teaching people abt marriage, lord have mercy
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by tuneh(f): 9:47am On Feb 08, 2008
esp to bgees,

While I agree with u that people shouldn't listen so much to Oprah, I take exception to d sweeping statement that single mothers breed prostitutes, rapists etc. I am a single mother but not by choice. At least in nigeria most single mothers are that way due to being dealt with by guys. My daughter I commited to God from day 1 and I have determined that she will be raised in the way of God.
As for Oprah, all I can say is that it would be foolish anyway to follow anyone who is not following God. Same goes for Dr Phil, Jerry Springer, etc

I think she can be very hypocritical she seems to have this holier than thou attitude i cant wait for someone to dig up some dirt on her
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by bgees(m): 7:10pm On Feb 09, 2008
@tuneh,
there are bound to be exceptions.yours looks like one. anyway, sorry i generalised it.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by Nobody: 4:57am On Feb 10, 2008
i heard she ripped into nigeria and nigerians in one of her shows. she said something like nigeria is full of scammers. if she actually said the above then it adds weight to my initial post.

Isn't that a known fact?
is it because someone else said it?
Come to Houston Texas and see Nigerians living in mansions built with wayo money.
do you have an idea how many Nigerians languishing in American jails from insurance deals to medicare fraud.
Even professionals are not exempt.
are we the only immigrants in America that one should should turn on the evening news and Nigerians are doing their 419 from coast to coast.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by Nobody: 5:12am On Feb 10, 2008
call her whatever name you like ,she has positioned herself to be heard and many are listening

if she is as wise as she claims, then she shouldnt generalise.there are bad nigerians, and u know there are good nigerians.the latinos are well known for drug dealing, but is it wise to call all latinos drug dealers?SHE SHOULD'NT JUST GENERALISE IT.and as far as i ' m concerned,only pompous and ignorant folks do so.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by bgees(m): 4:30pm On Feb 10, 2008
and how do u think the honest and hardworking few in america feel about that statement.
babyosisi:

true, she has positioned herself to be heard, and she is confused and the many who are listening are very confused and misled.

fair enuff.

i seem to have a problem with the fact that she feels she can tell pple what to do just because she has a huge fan base. lets face it, she has little or no experience when it comes to relationship, family, business, etc etc

i believe she is destined to be what she is. take the wealth away and she's just like any other person out there. her advice, suggestions and what not may/maynot be given a second thought if not for her wealth.

geeeeez, im ranting
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by waleab: 2:31pm On Feb 12, 2008
oprah is not about wealth but about destiny. she is a person of great destiny. if you red her biography you will know she is in the place destined for her.she is sometimes silly and other times very wise. generally she is a great lady and the best preacher in the world. her church is bigger than any church you ever knew.

on the nigerian issue what is wrong in what she said? i watched the programme from a video. blame the people that give us all a bad name rather than blame auntie O. do you guys know anyone else like her? she is a one. ok she is not married that shouldn't stop her pontificating about anything. it is gtoing to get worse because she just got her own network called OWN.

go auntie go auntie i would say. lets throw our bad eggs into the bar bearch first then i will submit my auntie for lynching
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by A40(m): 3:45pm On Feb 12, 2008
Like there are no fraudulent white boys or Latino drug dealers.The woman is a hypocrite enuff said
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by amsky(m): 4:54pm On Feb 12, 2008
we love you oprah!!!!!! kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by bgees(m): 5:41pm On Feb 12, 2008
what would happen if oprah was U.N sec.gen.
all men would be shipped to mars.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by waleab: 7:21pm On Feb 12, 2008
you guys misunderstand her and what she stands for. it is harder for anyone with money to marry for true love. most people around you are mostly fakes.  i don't think she hates men. she may hate cheats i think every sane person should hate cheats and theives. why do you guys have problem with that? leave my auntie alone
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by Albato(m): 4:00pm On Feb 13, 2008
Oprah Winfrey - my thoughts?
She is outrageously rich. She should try and get a child to enjoy her wealth with or better still a man in her life. Anyone heard if she has a man?
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by waleab: 10:30am On Feb 14, 2008
the great auntie herself

Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by Mustay(m): 5:36pm On Feb 14, 2008

too late. she's getting old unless she adopts a child that's like 16 years old.

@topic

sometimes i like her and sometimes i don't.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by zigbo(f): 12:39am On Feb 15, 2008
she sucks. . .

@albato she is been seeing one Stephen guy like dat for yrs now.
@amsky speak for urself sweet heart
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by Albato(m): 10:28am On Feb 15, 2008
There was a rumour she was having a lesbo affair with one of her close friends that often appear on the show. Can you blame people for saying this? No way. We dont ever see any dudes around her. All the same, I like her for all the good things she has done. I watch her show on those lazy mornings when I gat nothing else to do.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by zukkie4eva(f): 11:42am On Feb 15, 2008
The woman is making things happen & some pple r here spectating & criticizing. Whether u like it or not. . . she's a force to be reckoned with!!! even though she needs to give her heart to christ sha. undecided
Re: Oprah Winfrey: Your Thoughts by omoge(f): 4:08pm On Feb 15, 2008
she has a man, he is a business man and always busy to have time to follow O around unlike many out there. I have seen them both attend events. They love each other you could tell even if not married. They've been together for long, even longer than married one.

Leave O alone. She is doing a great job cheesy

thats not the point, everyone knows oprah is this and she's that but she has no right talking smack about a whole nation publicly and on nat. tv.
