    Am I the only person who could care less about Oprah’s farewell??
    After she made that nonchalant statement about picking up soaps, I kind of wrote her off for good. NOT because of what she said, but HOW it was said.
    I also have never been a fan of Oprah’s.

    such an ignorant statement people are making. How is it that you can’t be a fan of OPrah for everything she has done. To say you don’t like her is to say you don’t like the things that she has done. Now I think she’s wrong about the soaps as well but there is no way I would dislike her for it.

    This video really shows that Jimmy has lost a lot of weight. Well done, Jimbo.

    I enjoy all the spoofs and satires of Oprah’s big farewell, but at the same time, I respect her immensely. I can point to one show in particular from about 15 years ago that saved my life, but I often find aspects of her show that try to uplift the human condition. Yes, there’s way too much hyperbole around her leaving, but there was for Carson and Cronkite, too. It’ll all be over after today, so the end of the hoopla is near. Personally, I am grateful she’s been here, and I will continue to follow some of the shows on OWN (I’m especially looking forward to The Rosie O’Donnell Show this fall)!

    As for her comments about the soaps, JAQ, I don’t understand what the problem is with what she said or how she said it. She’s a businesswoman, and she said what any businesswoman in television would say. She loves soaps, but they aren’t money makers anymore. She only said what is true. We may not like the truth, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

    I am still a card-carrying Oprah fan. I don’t blame her for not adopting AMC and OLTL. Business is business. I won’t be watching her new network, but I don’t think we will ever see another talk show host who will even come CLOSE to having the impact on mainstream society that she’s had.

    And YES I will be planted in front of my TV this afternoon at 4:00 to bid her farewell.

    And she HAS done a lot of humanitarian work and work to help society in general, which is FAR more than many in Hollyweird and the entertainment industry can boast, but she’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and I totally respect that. If you guys want to label me as a “traitor” for supporting her and her legacy, so be it. I’ve been called worse.

    wow aren’t I the bad one??
    I never said I blamed Oprah for not picking up the soaps.
    If you listened to her statement on YTube, I and many others found her tone degrading.

    As far as what she has done for others…I don’t base how I feel about someone on what they can or can’t do for me. It comes deeper.
    I think the only time I have watched an entire Oprah show is when she does her Christmas specials on new products that came out.
    Other than that, I never watch her, so, her absense really doesn’t bother me.
