Oprah Winfrey - think she's a fake?

I was a teen when the show started, back then she seemed genuine.
now it seems to me that she's pretty fake and full of herself.

and I wonder how many of those books she suggested she actually read.

I miss the old her.

anyone else?

  • I think she is who she always was just with more validation and more money. I don't mind her, but I would HATE to work for her.

  • I like her, I don't think she seems fake at all. I'm sure she changed from the time her show started but I don't think that's a bad thing.

  • 'Don't watch her' - oh, I don't much anymore. but sometimes at the gym she's on a tv and I catch her then.

    I guess what sticks in my mind was how she had Martha Stewart on, going on about how concerned she was, seemed to be trying to make herself look wonderful and concerned.
    but then Martha busted her on the fact that she never came for a visit when she was in Jail.
    boy, did Oprah look mad.

    I'm interested in what people think of her these days.

  • I think Oprah has went out of her way to help many people through the years- we all change at some point in our life in one way or another; i don't think she is Fake at all-

  • I don't know if she's fake or not, but I know there are things she does that seem contrived and that annoys me some. I've never watched her, but she's EVERYWHERE, so it's difficult not to know something about what she's doing at any given moment. I'm happy for her success. I would never begrudge anyone success, but...

  • I think she is the real thing, not fake.

  • I've never really watched her. I've seen her interviewed, though, so it's hard to say. I'm seriously wondering how much money one person needs. She has a TV show, a magazine and now a TV network.
