Oprah Getting Her Black-Tie Affair On

I may crack a joke here or there about Oprah, y’all, but the truth is that I’m pretty much a devoted follower of most of what she says. She reminds me too much of my mother for me to ever seriously disregard something she says. Except for her taste in movies, I’m pretty much sold. If Gayle ever decides to end their long-standing friendship, I’ll be right over here. Holding my imaginary novel that I’ll be waiting to present to her for inclusion in her Oprah’s book club, right before I rocket into critical acclaim and awesome friendship. God, I can’t wait.

Oh yes, and here is O in all of her philanthropic glory and awesome hair at Elie Wiesel’s Foundation for Humanity at the Waldorf-Astoria, going on with her bad self and speaking at the event. And Iman wasn’t looking too shabby either, especially if you think about the fact that she’s the same age as Janice Dickinson. Yes, wrap your brain around THAT.
