Oprah Winfrey Calls It Quits

November 20, 2009 § Leave a comment

Looks like The Most Powerful Black Woman On Television is saying buh-bye to Daytime TV. And really, after 25 seasons, how could you blame her? I mean, come on – she’s Oprah. This is probably the only person who can show up at the house you just moved into and tell you to get the fuck out.

Why’s she quitting? “Twenty-five years feels right in my bones and it feels right in my spirit. It’s the perfect number, the exact right time.”

But it’s not like The End of Oprah or anything. Far from it. Word has it she’ll be starting her own L.A.-based 24-hour cable network, “The Oprah Winfrey Network” – OWN. Look at that – Oprah’s moving from a mere show to an entire fucking network. Now that’s power.

Winfrey broke barriers for women, and black women especially, and still more for businesspeople. Her billions aside, “Oprah” is like a corporation, and she has the same cultural power as something “Google.” Everybody knows Oprah.

It’s just too damn bad that now, I’ll never get to be in the audience and go home with a free car.
