Oprah Winfrey: A Biography

I think sometimes the way Kitty dismantled Oprah with relish actually hurt the book's credibility. She does state facts,and even though she praises Oprah from time to time for her accomplishments, Kitty herself still comes across as a catty woman. I don't know what her intentions were, and I am not sure going behind Oprah's back to hear relatives bad mouth her is so ethical, but I do think everyone should read this, not so that we can expose the real Oprah or to humiliate her, but so that we don't run the risk of worshiping people and becoming envious of who we think they are.

Oprah is still an amazing woman, and her last show has been informative, fun, off the beaten path and something to look forward to watching when it was on.

Her envy of beautiful white girls is something I think all of us share. Maybe just for a few minutes in our life would we like to experience that lightness and ability to be liked just for how we looked. Most of us also think these beautiful girls aren't bitter or depressed, so yes, I think it is a normal thing, and Kitty should not have pointed it out as being important and central to Oprah's motivation as a person.

Oprah is my age, and disappointingly, I have not accomplished anything I thought I would, and I came from a very decent home, not wealthy, not "Little House on the Prairie" type, but one of values, and fights, and real people who made efforts to be faithful and keep loving.

Oprah's accomplishments could make me feel worthless, but I don't and am quite grateful for what I do have: My complaints about my parents, may they rest in peace, totally disappear, because I see that not everyone had what I had, a mother who really cared and was ready to fight for what she thought was best for us, a father who adored all of us, despite his flaws, and siblings who have a conscience and have never been complacent about their place int he world.

So Kitty's biography put my own life in perspective, and maybe she can do that for you. Mass Market Paperback Verified download. Felt like taking a bath after every page. Kitty Kelley makes anything a person do look like there are ulterior motives. This is an endless scandal sheet with every Oprah detractor's gossip and sour grapes opinion exhaustively documented.

I burned it when I was done. I'd hate to pass along this piece of bad news to anyone else. If you feel compelled as I was to read this to refute somebody else's arguments, download it used so Kitty does not get a penny from this piece of garbage. Yes Oprah has been in the news a long time.

Yes, she is an easy target for detractors, as a public figure. Oprah is still the most successful black woman in the world, role model to millions of women and men everywhere, if you are looking for inspiration and a model of the good work ethic. Kitty Kelley is just looking for the quick buck, riding on Oprah's coattails.

Here's a preview of the things you will learn in this book

Don't waste your time on this fishwrap. Not worth it. Wish I could give it a minus five rating. It was a quick read. This "tell all" was really no surprise to me. So you want to nitpick on her weight, on her confidential agreements, on her threats to sue if people talk bad about her, on her past-what may or may not be true, etc. From her being accessible to not.

In reality you cannot fault her. I mean even if she didn't play it off like she was the poorest of the poor in the south-she was still poor. Or are we disagreeing with that?

Then she grew up, made a name for herself, and made millions and billions of dollars. All the while not only being female but a black female regardless of what shade of black. I give credit where credit is due. She has earned every penny and even confidential agreement she has infront of her. Does she use the cameras at the right time to promote her good deeds?

Probably But who doesn't and does that mean she gets marks against her good will? I'm far from an Oprah fanatic but give her more positives than negatives.

As far as Ms. Kelley-I give her credit for trying to write a book on a person who is pretty secretive about her life without very many people to be able to spill the beans.

With that said-this book could have been reduced by quite a bit. A lot of it was repeated throughout the book. Overall good, nothing new or shocking. I hope Oprah, herself, eventually writes a memoir or autobiography. I think her "rags to riches" story can give a lot of people inspiration.

Well researched. Like most people, I bought into Oprah's image in the beginning, but as time went by it was hard to ignore her self-centeredness, blatant materialism, name dropping, and the all around feeling that everything is about Oprah. Her "favorite things" episodes were pompous displays of generosity for adoration, and the focus on highly expensive things in her magazine that most women couldn't afford pretty much rendered her claim of being "everywoman" a ridiculous lie.

Having said that, I do not have a very high opinion of most of her family. I believe Hattie Mae probably did her best and that Oprah owes a lot to Vernon for her turnaround, but the others sound like a bunch of envious and petty individuals with a huge sense of entitlement to things they didn't earn.

Oprah Winfrey: A Biography

It sounds to me that they all have received plenty and I can see how Oprah probably didn't get enough love and acceptance growing up. Lots of very wealthy people eventually lose touch with everyday life, people and reality being surrounded by so many "yes" people, and I believe this has happened to Oprah.

Her claim of being some "chosen" person is just downright creepy and deluded.

Someone as intelligent and spiritual as she claims to be should be real clear on how many of the things she's done and said that God wouldn't approve of.

What I Know For Sure. Kelley has talked to Oprah's closest family members and business associates. Print edition download must be sold by site. Kelly undermines the purported objectivity of this biography by never using a neutral word choice when a derogatory one can be used instead.
