Do You Have Oprah's Cell Phone Number?

Don't feel bad cause her mother doesn't have it either!
According to a new unauthorized biography by Kitty Kelly Oprah's mom has to call an assistant who relays her messages to Oprah, who then calls back with Oprah's answers. To be fair, Oprah does provide her mom with a generous allowance, a car and driver and anything else she wants, just not her phone number.

It's one thing to have a trifling cousin, but a trifling mama? Dang!

How else is Oprah suppose to protect herself from a neglectful mother, not to mention, unsupportive during her youth. Is not she the one that maintained a relationship with her daugther's sexual perperutar? Lets face it, a man that did not give a effing about her lest alone her daughter. Oprah is okay in this area with me! I have been there and done that.

Oprah might have been a bobble head, but her mama's head looks swollen.

Oprah is doing good by making sure her mother can enjoy a comfortable living with money that Oprah works for. Let's see her mother live like that off of her own money.

I don't know how or why anyone can expect more of Oprah when it comes to her mother, considering her upbringing. People like her mother are not going to change no matter what or how much is done for them. Her mother comes off as a user, and I would have cut her off after she used my name to run up credit card debt that she knew she wasn't even thinking about trying to pay back.

considering her mama continued a relationship with a man that was molesting her (didnt oprah get pregnant and later miscarry?) TO ME she is doing too much for her, if it was my mother, she wouldnt have any contact, money or relationship with me period. Family is not a pass to treat others like shit because they feel by being family they cant be disregarded.

^^^Thanks @1:33pm It is not a pass to be mistreated. I have seriously been considering skipping Christmas and holiday events with family treats me like dirt due to jealousy.

She is probably looking after her mother's well being because she has reached a point somewhere in her life where she has learned to forgive her for what happened to her in her youth, and felt that holding grudges, turning her back, or being spiteful to people that have crossed her didn't make her a better person.

Oprah's mother is not living on the street.

End of story.

@ 3:10. I agree. She has put it behind her. She is a spiritual person and she honors her mother and father, regardless of their faults. She has risen above it.

Oprah knows that money can't solve all of her problems or erase her past, so Oprah is doing what she needs to do to help her sleep at night and continue to be blessed.

Let me add that on top of the carrying on a relationship with a pedophile, seems like everytime Oprah tries to do right by this broad she gets the shaft. Didn't her Mom run thru a line of credit at Hermes that her daughter had no idea she had procured off of Oprahs good name. And she gave some monkey ass excuse like "the store knew I didn't have money". That was perhaps 2 years ago.

I agree, Oprah is doing too much already and sometimes you have to consider your own mental health. I'd make her bring a licensed psychologist evertkme she came to my house.

Oprah has said several times that she does not even have a cell phone. She said it, again, the last time she was on Larry King and Larry admitted that he didn't have one either. So, everyone has to call the assistant who relays the message to Oprah, not just Oprah's mom.

Of course, I agree with everyone else about Oprah not owing her mom a damn thing---no child does. Parents are supposed to raised their children properly because that is their responsibility. If they don't want the responsibility, then don't have children. All children owe QUALITY parents is love and respect, not money. And, I think we all can agree that Oprah did not have a quality mother. Every woman who gives birth is not a mother.

Oprah is a much better person than me, because she wouldn't get a dime from me.

Oprah's mom didn't even bother to change the misspelling on her birth certificate, so what does that tell you?

All great points and very good insights from everybody. I have a slightly different take, though. Don't forget that Oprah is a highly intelligent woman who is very aware of the power of bad press and the pwerful, negative effects it can and does have on a career. The proof is all over the place. An OG like Oprah definitely understands this. I see her mom as a kind of extortionist: "Do right by me or I'll kill your good name. I don't care what I was to you growing up, don't forget, I know all about you." Smart biz people like Oprah realize that there is a higher power even for powerful celebs. It's called the power of public perception. Her empire is 90% image and 10% chess moves. She's no fool and that makes her vulnerable to a select few.

FUCK OPRAH!!! Her mother don't have a right to ask for money but let's not portray the fat bitch as some kind of saint or victim. "Miss O" is phony, calculated and insipid.

wow^^^LMAO and Oprah would probably block her number from herself if she could!Being rich as f*&k brings family members out of the woodwork regardless of there being any type of family bond. I have no idea about how her relationship is/was with her family nor do I care because Oprah obviously doesn't because she's rich bitch, NEXT!

i could care less about being named spiteful if my mom stood by with me being molested by her man and did nothing but continue on with him..that spirtitual/forgiveness shit is bs...you can forgive but that dont mean you got to support losers like oprah does her mom. if my mom didnt do anything if i was molested as a child and got subsequently pregnant, i wouldnt care if she got a pot to piss in..goes to show you why should you care about others when they dont care about you? that didnt stop her mom from being a arse and running up that bill last year..she is a more NOBLE person than me! i only love those who love me..so if my mom was like her i wouldnt do shit for her ass, but i think oprah does it to stop her mom from trying to get a book deal or something..

She indeed has a cell

She, like Beyonce, are great liars & masters of deception. I know its blasphemy to talk about St. Oprah, but it is what it is.

And I don't think this is her first cell(2yrs ago)She just got caught.

Open your eyes people, she's still human. She didn't get to where she is by NOT being power -hungry & image-concious.

I thinking if you had great parents who sacrificed for you and were supportive of you, you should be there for them and help them if you can. Oprah's mom wouldn't be that parent. I think that Oprah knows if she doesn't take care of her mom she'll never hear the end of it.

Not only does she get an allowance,she racked up a department store bill that was published and Oprah paid the outstanding bill before they took her mother to court and she hears about it. Her mother has that entitlement syndrome. She thinks she is entitled to Oprahs wealth when she did nothing to raise her as a child. I would not disrespect her as still my mother because I want to live the rest of my life with my spirit at peace, but she would not have a phone number nor home address.

Anonymous said...

It's possible she uses the phone for email or texting and doesn't really take calls on the phone, a lot of people are moving in that direction these days. Kids don't owe parents anything. People treat you bad or poorly and at some point you have to cut them loose.

I know one thing...in this picture her mama looks like she's about ready to tear into a free buffet and get down and greasy, and Oprah looks like she wants to tell her not to stuff anything in her face while the cameras are around.

@ ANONYMOUS 11:54, I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH U.

A business woman like Oprah not having a cell phone is ridiculous, for her to try to have someone believe that, but i can see why she says she dont have one that would be 850 hang ups a day . If anyone was giving me a generous allowance but didnt want me to have their phone number - so be it just send the checks then.

ANON1 said...

I'm going to have to roll with Anonymous 6:29 on this and say Oprah knows exactly what she is doing here. Bad publicity, especially about your mother is not the business.

Personally, I don't feel even if you do forgive someone you have to allow them in your life. I can have peace within myself without giving you an allowance, driver at your beck and call, etc.

Panamanian, you said it in a nutshell. That's it. That's all.

Ttime0057, I'm not buying Ms. O doesn't and never had a cell. Thanks Anonymous 11:41. I knew I remembered she had one because she told everyone her monumental feat. The girls at the academy that she gave the cell phones to, did she not give them her direct cell or direct number? I don't know.

LOL @ 7:52.

*wondering how many are the same ones that gave Keyshia grief for cutting off her family for nonsense.*

Family is family, but that doesn't mean you have to incorporate foolishness and negativity in your life. Regardless if it's Mama or not. I can love you from afar.
