Trust Me.... She Noticed

How did she let this happen? It's called..... living.

Almighty Oprah has come up with a humdinger of a January cover story for O Magazine. Oprah Winfrey is fat again. Surprise! It's not as if it just happened over the last month or so. This has been going on for the last year, year and a half. First the diet shows stopped, then the fashion shows ceased. The camera angles got wider and so did Oprah. Only no one was talking about it.* And now we know why. To sell magazines of course! Oprah is back to big and plans on staying that way.

''When it comes to maintaining my health I didn't just fall off the wagon. I let the wagon fall on me,'' the chairwoman of Harpo Inc. writes. ''I didn't follow my own fundamental rule of taking care of self first.''

In 2005, Winfrey said she starved herself for four months to lose weight. Ever since, her weight has yo-yoed. She weighed as much as 237 pounds and by late 1990 acknowledged she had regained most of the 67 pounds, saying ''I'll never diet again.''

I must give credit to Kathy Griffin, who, last Christmas at a live show here in Vancouver, did say... "Why the f&ck isn't anyone talking about how Oprah is fat again? I mean she talks about everything else. It's because everyone is terrified of The Almighty Opes."

I can't believe Oprah making this into some big story. Who cares how much she weighs? I certainly don't, and I can't think of a less interesting article. Then again, I hate Oprah the Narcissist, so any time she publicizes herself is an instant turn off for me.
