    I think she was really genuine to begin with, but now I really think she has forgotten where she came from. One thing That I know for sure, whatever she touches turns to gold.

    Oh, Oprah's quite a girl-she is. I think what she's done with her life is inspirational and she should be justly proud of the achievements she's made. That being said I think we all pretty much burned out on Oprah as the years went by. I always look at people who are famous simply because they are famous with a jaundiced eye. These folks put themselves up for all to see then complain about the view. So goodbye Oprah, I hope she and her money have a good life together.

    She has embraced a lot more nutty causes and beliefs over the years.  I remember her shilling for "The Secret." That really put me off Oprah more than her slavish devotion to  celebrities.  She seems to believe that people who are paid millions of dollars to appear in movies are endowed with vast wisdom and greater depth than non-celebrities. I'm surprised she hasn't gone Scientologist yet.  I can only imagine how f-d up her kids would be if she had had any.

      You're right about all that. I think it's what happens to most people who stay in the limelight for too long.

    I think she should give me some money. I mean honestly I always wonder what type of person I'd be if I had millions of dollars. I'd honestly give to people in need. Not the charities because half of the time the needy people never see the money. But she is a cool person. She's not really in the spot light anymore though.

    I agree with most of what everyone has said. Just would like to add:
    Emotionally dependent

    She is like some sort of cult leader, because people seem to be so easily influenced by what ever she says or promotes. Used to really like her but after 15 years of not seeing anything about her except the magazine and then tuning in again something is awry. Not even sure what is, but I think I have just outgrown her.
