Oprah's Favorite Things Blunder


Back when Oprah Winfrey's talk show was the highest rated show on television, placement of a product on Oprah's legendary Favorite Things episode was guaranteed success for every item she chose, because her legion of loyal followers actually believed she loved each thing.

Oprah recently revived her Favorite Things concept for a special on OWN, but she's being a little messy about the way she's promoting some of the products...

Oprah recently Tweeted how she just loves the new Microscft Surface tablet, but she Tweeted it from her iPad!

That show was boring.
And why is she so dang on BIG?

BTW, she had this green dress on and looked like she was wearing a blanket. Also, she can't even walk in heels, look like she was going to pick cotton.

I guess if you like something you have to use it every second of every day.

Big deal. She likes them both. Not a crime.

Why have both tho? I don't have neither and I don't feel the need to have one. Oprah selling us something we don't fucking NEED, that's the real crime here.Fuck her!

YEAH REALLY. IDGAF ABOUT SPENDING ALL MY DAMN MONEY ON GIFTS WHEN I HAVE BILLS TO PAY. BOUGHT 12 ALREADY HUH. WELL THAT'S JUST GREAT FOR YOU ISN'T IT OPRAH. STOP FLAUNTING ALL OF YOUR DAMN MONEY. YOU LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY A LOOOOONG TIME AGO.

I agree with 11:29 minus the hostility. Her favorite things list used to have some really nice items that regular everyday people like us could enjoy. This years items is just a bunch of overated, over priced items that only the elite (who have the money to throw away) could have. I'll just stick to watching Iyanla Vanzant.

Don't matter. Hell, I think Samsung makes the parts for both the Surface and iPad anyway. I have an iPad but other than that, i look at whose making the technology behind the device - Samsung is walkin round this muhfugga like Huggy Bear right now - straight pimpin. But Apple is Pimpin Ken and is tryna take some of Samsung hoes by suing em in court over the Galaxy..

This the real fucking tea right here:

But according to Nielsen numbers sent to the Cut, the special averaged just over 870,000 viewers the first time it aired, which is strong for OWN, but one tenth of the nearly 9 million who watched when "Favorite Things" last aired on Oprah’s daytime syndicated talk show in 2010.

what The Hell Ever Oprah!

Same ol' Bee Gee.

How you work a Pimpin Ken reference into an Oprah Winfrey post about a Microsoft tablet?

My sides hurt.

You need your own show, bruh.

Her producers should not have pissed off that UC final show audience by leaving them high and dry. Nobody was feeling her after that.

WHEN OPRAH ENDORSED OBAMA, SHE FELL OFF THE WHITE FOLKS RADAR. SHE BEEN OFF OURS BEFORE THE ENDORSEMENT. HAVE YOU NOTICED SHE DIDNT PROMOTE HIM THIS YEAR OR SEEN IN PICS WITH HIM. JUST WROTE HIM A BIG FAT CHECK LIKE SHE SHOULD HAVE DONE 4 YEARS AGO.
