Like I've said many, many times in the past, if Oprah were standing in a forest and there were no cameras around to tape her, would she do anything nice for anyone?
Definitive answer. NO.
I worked for Lettuce Entertain You and she used to be part owner of a restaurant called The Eccentric. I assure you she was NO fun at all to work with or for. She was routinely rude and imperious to her "underlings." As people from the Chicagoland area well know, most anything connected with Rich Melman does very well for a good long time. The Eccentric did not last long at all.
This and the many people I knew who had the misfortune to bump in to Oprah around town as fans werent' her fans any longer after meeting her.
I'm not at all suprised she is being so obnoxious about Jennifer Hudson. It's Oprah's World, we're just living in it.
