Shhhh! Don’t tell anybody, but Oprah took a secret trip to Africa. And here we are, blowing her cover. Oopsie. Over the weekend, the talk show host visited the Leadership Academy Girls School in Africa, which has been the subject of allegations of abuse and mistreatment of the girls there. The father of the girl who claims she was abused, revealed that Oprah visited his family to speak with them personally. “I think they are planning new rules and staff for the school,” he told People magazine. “I am happy because at last we had a chance to speak. Oprah resolved everything.” Sounds like Oprah’s laying the smack down. Go O! But her public troubles don’t stop there, she’s also dealing with an alleged extortionist, who is planning on publishing an expose on her, named “Ruthless.” Keifer Bonvillain was charged last year with extortion when he attempted to sell audiotapes of a high-level employee at Harpo talking trash about Oprah. Hmm, somehow I doubt his tome is going to make her book club…unless she has a special weapon she uses called her “book club” that she uses specifically to injure those threatening to write tell-all books.
