My neighbor was on the Oprah show a few years ago for doing something really cool. I babysat her DD while she was gone.
She told me Oprah's staff was extremely professional, perfectionist, and that Oprah was not interested in the story that my friend had to present.
I heard friend's telling before I saw the show, and almost did not believe her, unitl I saw the show. Oprah cut her off, barely looked at the item, made a few uhm hum noises, and that was it!!
Friend said she would have peferred the Ellen show, but what she did was contract bound and signed by a head company.
Not that Oprah was a diva, but...if she does not like something, you can tell.
I teach at a private school and we are "allowed" to leave campus if we have a long break for whatever odd reason. But we have to tell someone. What if I had car trouble?
Jennifer's people should have given notice, but Oprah should have given grace.
