Hold the phone....all of Oprah's proteges are shysters

Mister Phil, Dr. Oz, her Diet Crap, Rachel Ray on and on.......made $$ ON people's misfortunes. I see nothing extra ordinary about that.

5. Celebrity chefs are as much about personality

as cooking skills. Sheís pretty and a lot of fun on camera, and her food certainly wonít hurt anyone, unlike those other assholes you listed.

Iím just glad she hadnít committed some kind of awfulness I didnít know about.

9. She openly admits she is a cook, not a chef

She makes no pretenses. On the other hand, how many chefs brought us "fusion" food and "small portion" cuisine.

11. Her branded dog food is 100% real, and not faked with fillers and by-products like many others.

3. stop generalizing. you are not posting factual information.

Oprah has NOT made $$$ on misfortune

She hasn't even come out and announced. There is no need to debbie downer the situation.
Oprah has done more positive things in our lives than almost any other host of television, actress in films, writer, director ... and even owning her own station.

10. One of the big money makers for her Harpo Productions is the Dr. Phil Show

He peddles pop psychology, 30 minute cures and other fad quackery (his "diet" books, etc.). That seems to be making money off misery.

I have more respect for Jerry Springer - at least The Jerry Springer Show was staged.

6. She does seem to have a knack for giving airtime to quacks and hucksters

If somebody's pushing quick cures or fad diets Oprah's probably had 'em on a time or two.

20. I actually had a discussion with someone here who

 

apparently expected her to be psychic --- know in advance that that author (James Frey, was it?) had written a fictional book, not authentic memoir, and all about Oz and Phil and so forth. I happen to not have a problem with any of them, but it's ridiculous for someone to have expected her to know in advance that they'd be controversial at some point. SMH

15. Not an Oprah fan but I don't hold her accountable for Rachael Ray

if you don't like her food, don't watch and don't cook it.

21. Doctor Phil is an actual doctor

Not a medical doctor, but he does hold a Ph.D in clinical psychology from an accredited university.

Heís definitely still a quack, but Dr. Phil is well-educated quack.
