I caught some of that show. WOW! I've never seen O so ticked off. I almost felt sorry for the guy. Part of my brain kept thinking, Enough already. You made your point. Move on. More PR for him.

For a smart lady, she should have done her homework before putting her name on the line to endorse this book. A hard lesson learned.

I never watch Oprah, or Montel. I have enough real problems of my own...don't need to hear that hyped up BS. As for the soaps...don't need them either. My life has been a soap opera.
I'm not knockin'em though....they are making a lot more money than I am!
We get by with a little help from our friends

You and me both, Constance. I tried watching her show twice, and both times I got through about 6 minutes before I deemed it not worthy.
