I am going to admit something that I probably shouldn’t.
I’m not a fan of Oprah.
There. I SAID IT.
My sister will tell you that this is because I don’t like anything that everyone else likes. If there is something popular I hate on it and love the weirder, less commonly loved product. I hate Sex in the City, but I loved Two Guys, A Girl, …and a Pizza Place.
I don’t purposely hate all TV that most people love, I think it’s just that I consume more TV than most and have realized that Oprah kinda has the same show over and over and again. If it’s a good guest it might be worth a watch, but really it’s not something I’d ever DVR.
If she has my 90’s idol, Tanya Harding, on the program.
Ok, so I didn’t really idolize Tanya Harding, but I was a fanatic of her and the case brought against her regarding her involvement in the Nancy Karrigan knee-whacking.
So, when I saw the commercial preview of the interview I just had to watch Oprah.
I DVR’d it and watched it this morning and I have to say the interview with Tanya was everything I wanted it to be. She admitted her biggest mistake was to marry an idiot, and then said she’s sick of apologizing to Nancy Kerrigan.
Oh Tanya! You never did change. Well, she does seem a little older, and wiser.
The best part of the interview was when Oprah asked her, “Now, really what would you say to Nancy Karrigan if she were here? And, don’t worry, this isn’t the type of show that would bring her out to surprise you now.”
Silly Oprah! You should do a show about your show in the 90’s, because you totally used to do that.
I doubt there will be daily DVRing of miss O, but I have to say I do dig the older, wiser Oprah as well. I really liked her inspirational speeches about how we just have to overcome the fear of getting what we dream to be, and how we have to continue to move forward in life.
When it comes to life advice though, I still say I’m sticking to listening to RuPaul. Because honey – if you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love anybody else?
Can I get an Amen in here?!!
