A Sad Day as Oprah Retires
For many millions, life will never be the same. She was the light of their lives; their best TV friend. For over two decades, five days a week, the Oprah Show provided entertainment, enlightenment, and education. Her enthusiastic fans are legion and stretch across the world.
The party is over – sad day for fans worldwide
No matter what you think of Oprah, she made millions laugh, cry, shake their heads, think and change their lives. She is a fabulous force to be reckoned with. The world is a better place for having her here.
She has been taped and TiVo-ed and has been ‘Don’t Miss TV’. Millions of people watched Oprah, every single day, then proceed to talk about it, write about it and quote Oprah in their daily lives. Ask husbands and boyfriends who have heard, “ Oprah says…” countless times.
The Gayle and Oprah Go Camping shows were the 2011 versions of an I Love Lucy show and ‘appointment TV’ for millions who wanted to laugh, a lot. And, we did. They were hysterical.
Read On: Oprah Book Club
Men and women who rarely picked up a book, much less a Classic or a New York Times bestseller before, have become avid readers. Thanks, Oprah. She has done more to launch readers and inspire people to read than all the First Ladies – combined- in history the United States.
For 25 years, she has had a show that’s entertained millions with a line up nuns, nuts, famous people, models, movie stars, survivors, sexy seniors, as well as unique, stellar, inspiring and very strange people.
Romance and Stedman
Both single and married women have closely observed Oprah and her beau, Stedman. Oprah has been discreet with regard to her relationship with her long-time, steady, boyfriend. Inquiring minds want to know – and she is not telling. Her social life gives pause: if Oprah doesn’t have to dash to the altar, do we?
“Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.” Snoopy
