    Oprah appears to be a fraud

    New book tells all. "Lesbian flings, prostitution and lies about abuse"
    "Winfrey concocted stories about sexual abuse she suffered as a child -- and grossly exaggerated the poverty she was brought up in.
    * She went to great lengths to conceal her "lesbian affairs" -- including hefty payoffs -- and publicly attached herself to Graham to appear more normal to her audience of housewives.
    * She lavished romantic gifts -- including a diamond toe ring -- on ABC talking head Diane Sawyer.
    * Winfrey sold her body to earn extra money and has even described herself as a teen "prostitute."
    * She doesn't know the true identity of her biological father."...................................

    Oh well the fairy tell is over. She scammed the gullible day time TV crowd real good. What a joke. Thank you very much

    I have to say Glenn so what; I am not a fan but she has worked her ass off and made it. She has done a great deal of good for many people and you cannot take that away from her either. She is not a public servant so her personal life is her business and her past regardless makes no difference to the people that watch her. If she is gay and has kept it out of the public arena more power to her I wish all homosexuals would keep it to themselves.

    Well classic she was helped along the way by telling falsehoods like her being abused as a girl and growing up in dire poverty which are apparently untrue now as for her sexuality that didn't disturbed me near as much as her false "stories" she fabricated.

    How can you admire and trust someone who tells lies? If she is not honest then she doesn't deserve her fame. That's how I feel and if you feel different so be it. It doesn't brother me but I feel that she doesn't deserve what she has since it is all based on lies. Thank you, thank you very much

    Bother me that she lied her way to where she is? Nah. No more than it bothers me that a guy would claim to have been to the ME as a Marine and to have been wounded and decorated.

    Overlooking lies...not very good policy.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I have no use for her but I will have to give her credit for being one smart cookie. She got where she is by giving people what they wanted. The people that like her would pretty much forgive her anything so a fib or two probably win not bother most people.

    For a few others it may have burst their bubble she is not an angel. Not necessarily a bad thing but probable will make less ripples than a pebble in a pond. She could always spin her flaws into showing she is human and even more people might adore her.

    I really hate daytime TV.

    I will grant you Glenn that she is a hypocrit, consider that guy that wrote a book about his comeback from drug use and it turned to be a lie. She excoriated him on the air for being a liar so yes I have no use for her.
