Life without Oprah

I'm not a huge fan of Oprah myself. I mean, she's okay; and I do occasionally watch her show. But I for one will not miss her when she's gone.
And is she ever really going to be gone? Like ... isn't there an Oprah network now? Aren't we still going to see her face everywhere? When is enough enough, Oprah? I mean really!

G o ... h o m e , Oprah!
Yeah, that's right: pick one of your houses and GO HOME!
Put on your slippers and watch a little MTV. Organize your linen closet; make some beef stroganoff for Steadman; walk the dogs; weed the garden. Or even better yet, volunteer at your local food bank or read to seniors. Just hang up the scepter and crown and just ... "BE"!
Still, in honor of Oprah's announced aka rumored, sort-of impending, more "it's all relative", and "I'll-believe-it-when-I-see-it" departure, I think this little video is appropriate! Plus it's a hoot!

(PS - I expect to see Maxine Lapiduss on Oprah any time ..... that is, unless she's already been on and I wasn't watching. Could well be!)

When I was teachin' I'd come home from school grab me a long tall glass of Ovaltine, prop my feet up and zone out in front of Oprah.

Since retirement I've become 'picky' and censor the subjects, only watchin' Oprah if it truly sparks my interest.

Yep, she has her own network. I only watch it if it has a movie on I long to see.

Great video!

God bless ya and have a marvelous day!!!

I use to watch her a lot but all I did was cry watching the show. While I think Oprah did a lot of good helping people I had to say enough of those tear jerkers. And you are right she has her own network now OWN and I watch it sometime too. It's not ALL about her. Hope you are having a good day.

Thanks for coming and following me... I'm now your follower too... Anyone who gets me.... I get them...that would be you. I'm getting old, but still think I'm so young...that's so funny. Ha
Well, I gotta admit, I got so tired of Oprah in the last couple years, but....this last year she is putting on some great shows. It will be over soon and we can anticipate what the future will bring..... I'm so picky about her shows... So glad we are new friends.. Have a great weekend my new friend. xoso Sandy O

THANK YOU! I have always thought Oprah was an over-hyped, over-blown personality. And anyone who lives that ostentatiously gets my goat. I mean, really Oprah, you couldn't live on a couple million a year and give the rest of that to charity? I know she does a lot, but she could do SO MUCH MORE. Besides, I can't stand the last half hour of the show when there's 2 minutes of show for every 10 minutes of commercials.

Loved the video! I love a sweet snark!
