    I Thought I Was Alone

    i was beginning to develop a complex. was i the only woman in the world who didn't like oprah? she is just so phoney and opinionated. i don't get what the big deal is.  she has very little talent. how on earth did she get this far?  i would crawl across broken glass in...

    Me Too

    I don't like Oprah because no matter what guest she has on she says she understands how they feel. How can you understand something you have never experienced.

    Dont Much Care

      I can't really say that I have anything agianst her.  Anyone who is a self- made gazillionair deserves some props.   But, since I have found myself with a lot more time on my hands the past few months I have found myself...

    Oprah

    I used to watch Oprah on a daily basis, after that it was once in a while, then I stopped completely.  Not cause I did not like her shows but it turned out that way!

    Not An Oprah Fan

    i think Oprah embodies everything thats wrong about a neurotic hysteria-filled modern american. Spreading ideas virally aimed at middle income housewives. forcefeeding a generation with a plan for life. I think this is car crash tv. I suggest you switch the tv off.

    NOprah!

    She and her fake psychologist friends can stay the heck off my television thank you. She literally makes me sick. Underneath that shiny, forgiving surface is one nasty soul. That makes me -really- sad, considering with her friendship circle and dedicated audience, she could be...

    Finally!

    Oh, I'm amazed that there is a group for people who don't like Oprah.  I am so tired of her omnipresence in our media... It's bad enough that women, men, and children alike think she's so wonderful, but the worst thing is that she herself seems to wholeheartedly believe her...

    Not Really

    I don't watch her often or keep up with her at all. The few times I've seen her she doesn't seem real. Not natural in how she deals with others. Her philanthropy is amazing and wonderful, however she seems to need publicity and acknowledgement that she's doing it. She's just...

    Oprah...OMG

    I'm not against strong women. I am against phony strong women. Her primary agenda is about what is best for her and only her. I view her as a fake and a phony. One of my favorite South Park episodes is about Oprah. Makes me laugh every time I see it. (Did I really use South Park...

    Don't You Just Love the Way...

    when Oprah does something good she goes "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!"? She does do good things, but she clearly does it for the publicity.

    Praise My Deeds, You Unworthy Humans!

    Why is it every time I see this woman in the media or even catch her show she's always going on about her 'deeds'?  It's as if she feels this enormous compulsion to do kind things (in her mind they're kind deeds) for the unsuspecting and unworthy soul just so she'll have...

    What Bugs Me About Oprah...

    What bugs me about Oprah is the amount of influence she wields. She found a hick therapist whose license had been permanently revoked due to an incident with a 16 year old girl and, just by giving him national exposure, made "Dr. Phil" a household word and a multi-millionaire...

    What's Her Motive?

    I think Oprah does a lot of good things, like all the aide she's given in Africa... but like someone else here said before me, she does it so publicly. People like Angelina Jolie go and give foreign aide among other things, but I really think Jolie does it out of compassion...

    She Should Do More With Her Money

    The Oprah Show

    Out of everyone i very much dislike Oprah. I like how she helps people. But she is one significant person who doesn't see that we need to help our own ecenomy before we can help others! We are just doing more damage to ourselves. She cannot say that everyone in the whole U.S. is...

    Talking With Pedophiles Episode

    On Monday February 8th, 2010 Oprah interviewed pedophiles. Oprah said that the reason she did that episode was so that parents and people who had been abused could see what pedophiles are and how to see protect their children. I watched the episode and when it was over I thought...

    No Idea

    In many cases, Oprah has no idea what she is talking about. She has so many people, especially women, who believe everything she says simply because she is Oprah. Maybe if she spent more time talking about things that were true and important, instead of trying to shove...

    So Fake!

    She just seems incredibly fake to me. I like her magazine, but I can't bring myself to watch her show because she kisses the butt of whatever celeb she has on the show that day, and she is always talking over her guests or making snide jokes at their expense. She wants all the...

    Detached From The World

    Is it just me or does oprah seem a little detached from real issues and not those forced ones like bringing up the issues of race, sex and class? i dont hate oprah but maybe she is feeding her ego on less important topics
