Whose favorite? I don't think that poll was representative of the entire general public. Women of certain ages, maybe.

I think she's now pretty snooty, which is funny if you consider that in the very beginning, her show was almost as trashy as Jerry Springer's (ie, minus the violence). Well, it's an improvement.

Last time I heard her opinion on anything, she was talking about what a huge faux pas it was to walk into a room and see the TV, and was going over ways to conceal them and their wires. This from someone ON TV. Bleh.

i have never been a fan. i think there are many others better
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 2/1/04 - 8:36:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
... I like Oprah. And I'm proud of it. I think she is a great person doing wonderful things. I can't really believe that no one else likes her.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 2/1/04 - 8:37:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, I guess I can agree with that, she's a cool lady.

I think it's become quite a trend to hate Oprah.

She's got style and she's willing to lay it all out there for everyone to look at. That's definitely a quality that makes me want to watch her show. She brings a sense of community to the otherwise routine daily line-up (what with her book club and all). She donates thousands upon thousands to charity and she's sat before the Senate using her own horrible childhood to get laws against sex offenders passed. She, on a daily basis, helps people in an unintrusive and supportive way.

And she didn't even pay me to say that. I just like the gal. I think she's one of the most influential people of the 20th century.

I think she's an egomaniac narcissistic bitch personally. She can't just be nice or be generous, she has to make a press announcement every time she gives money to a charity and talk about how awesome and generous she is. On her show, she interrupts people when they are talking, and cuts in with stories about herself. And I also hear she is very racist against white people but pretends to not be like Bill Cosby. She's a bitch but unfortunately millions of women look to her as an example of how to act
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 2:29:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Are you serious? How can she be racist? I think that's a load of crap.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 3:05:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
She can be racist just as any other person can be - do you think she can't be racist just because she's a minority?
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 9:04:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't say that, did I?

I'm just saying I don't see where that would come from. I've never even considered the possibility but I mean, if you HEARD it then lord knows it must be a valid argument.

18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 10:34:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't remember where I heard it, probably some E! True Hollywood story. I tried to look it up but all I could find was some Tommy Hilfiger incident where he said something racist on her show.

It may not be true but I can definitely see it ... I never thought that about Cosby until I saw, yet again, a True Hollywood Story about him and it talked about how he hated most white people but he realized they were his audience so of course he's never made it obvious. But now knowing that when I watch his shows I see it - every white person on Different World or Cosby Show is in a servant role (working as a waiter, dropping off their water, etc.), or acts like a complete idiot. There are never white colleagues of Dr. Huxtable's, every other doctor there is black too except for a couple of kooky white guys. Maybe he's just trying to even things out since that's how white shows are towards black people, but it looks bad.

18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 11:35:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hmmm.

I guess it's just me because I don't see shows showing only black people as racist. I just don't. So what? Can you really explain to me how that's racist? Please.

By the way, Kiki, do you play your records backward looking for satanic messages?

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/14/04 - 6:21:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
bleh...I really don't like her. I cain't think of anyone better suited for "America's favorite TV host" though. Lord, I think they should all be taken out back and shot.

18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/10/04 - 3:07:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hate Oprah.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/10/04 - 3:08:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't really know why...
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/10/04 - 5:41:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Whether I agree or not, fact is a fact. A lot of people are obviously just sitting around wathching day time T.V. That's the sad part.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/18/04 - 1:40:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
America is a big place. There are a lot of imbeciles and cretins there and therefore it is likely that a lot of people there would like Oprah.
18 yrs ago - Sunday 4/25/04 - 10:42:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know, I've only watched her once. And that was in a dentist's office, so it probably doesn't count.
18 yrs ago - Sunday 4/25/04 - 10:58:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
You gotta be s***ing me?
18 yrs ago - Tuesday 4/27/04 - 1:12:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can't stand her. She is to much of a racest. With her living in sin and her attitude I can't see how anyone could like her. She also has a very big mouth,always prayzing her accomlishments. Its either her way or none at all. Nobody else counts.
18 yrs ago - Tuesday 4/27/04 - 2:01:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Alot of people want her to run for president...
