| Filed under: Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey was asked to give the commencement address at the esteemed Duke University this past weekend. She was truly inspiring, especially when she talked about how lucky she is:

"It's great to have a nice home. It's great to have nice homes! It's great to have a nice home that just escaped the fire in Santa Barbara. It's great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn't great is lying to you."

Lesson to learn graduates: It's good to be Oprah and sucks to be everyone else!

    Oprah give me some money bitch



  2. 2

    yep, better to rich and unhappy then poor and unhappy. lol.



  3. 3

    She makes me sick. For being an Obama supporter - she sure is going against everything he "stands" for. They are all hypocrites. She can stick that jet where the sun don't shine. and take obama with her.



  4. 4

    Bitch where's my money?



  5. 5

    Btw, fug!



  6. 6

    Way to go green Oprah. Your ego is working overtime. She'll probably make a special out of it too.



  7. 7

    She gets on my last nerve!



  8. 8

    That yellow branding is fucking horrible.



  9. 9

    yea it's great to be rich. and it's especially great to push it into to everyones faces now, when there's more and more working poor, families who are forced to live in the streets and the ghettos spreading. what a insensitive thing to say, bitch… so many out there, working their asses off and getting nothing in return…



  10. 10

    Truly classy people who have money don't make such stupid statements. Yes, they're true, but you don't condescend people like that. Well, she does, but classy people don't.



  11. 11

    Her carbon foot print is the size of ohio!Hope she never does a segment on global warming!



  12. 12

    I was at the graduation, my brother goes there. That wasn't the point she was trying to make. She was saying that no matter how much you end up with in the end (jets/multiple houses) if you aren't helping to better someones else's life you aren't truly successful. That quote was definitely taken out of context. If they had listed what she had said after you would think differently.

    "Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn't great is lying to you."

    Uhh…what asshole is going around saying that? That's worse than bragging about how great it is. "Yeah, I've got my own private jet, but it's not so great. Kinda sucks, really. My instant teleportation device — that's great. Anyone that tells you that having your own instant teleportation device isn't great is lying to you."

    Oh, btw, it's great to have a 96 Honda Accord too — anyone who tells you it isn't is just a liar and a dirty cocksucker. Tell 'em Oprah sent you!

    Re: SweetMelissa1224 – you got that right SweetMelissa except that Mr. Obama doesn't believe his own chit either since he has Air Force One and a mansion. He has lots of jokes lately about all the extras he has because of us tax payers.

    Re: WhenFlowersBloom – Oh yeah, sure she threw in all that other crap but she meant I am someone who has everything. Love how she just HELPS everyone in the world now but I am the only one who remember when her dumb show was just like Jerry Springer and all the rest. No one remembers???? I went to HARPO's restaurant since I live in Chicago. She had to close it down because it served the BAD food she USED to eat. Hell she still does but does it in as much secret as she can, can't have a restaurant showing it.

    Re: Kate27_is_a_Moron – Hippo crite!



  19. 19

    What she said would sound tacky to anyone.lol



  20. 20

    Re: Kate27_is_a_Moron – she should change her production company from Harpo to Hippo!
    Re: StupidBitchesNeedsToLearn – looking for the big pay back-that's what I'm talkn bout!

    How foul. What a disgusting person. Please stop ruining our planet with your selfishness, Oprah.

    Re: ScaryLisa – I see what you are saying, but I am just saying you are weren't there, and it was more sincere than you think. But I can see why you would think that. I don't know her personally so for all I know she could be a pretentious snot. I;m just saying it was a good speech and Perez should get the rest of that quote.



  23. 23

    I like how Oprah "helps" others with her "Angel Network", using everyone else's donated money! People are such tools to be suckered into giving rich people even more money and she gets the credit for "giving".

    Oprah looks a little like Seal in a whig



  25. 25

    Perez, you are a Moron and an Idiot don't put quotes around something that isn't quoted right.Love how most here believe what he posts. Why don't you actually watch the speech instead of stealing something that is inacurate off another site. She said something about the plane about 22 minutes into her speech. Her speech which was very inspiring. She was saying that yes, she does have houses, a private plane, and the stuff about don't believe anyone say it isnt nice as a side quote, but she does not consider someone sucessful until they inspire others to a higher goal. And that was the main context of her speech. And you can find that if you googled and searched sites other than rag sites. Hope she sues you and others for saying get a jet, but she ignores idiots.

    Re: buck – haaaaaaaaaaaaa kinda like a killer whale,,,,



  27. 27

    Yeah Oprah, the world's in the middle of a reccession and you talk about how great it is to be you and have a private jet.
    .
    .
    .
    What a bitch.



  28. 28

    She's inspired me to get my own private jet too. I'll just park it in the driveway next to my Hummer.



  29. 29

    WTF kind of commencement address was that? Sounded like O bragging to me. Also, probably only 5 to 10% (if that) of the grads in that audience have a chance to make the kind of Oprah makes. She gets on my fucking nerves with her out of touch with reality bullshit!

    Considering that she built her fortune, i would interpret the comment as inspiring them to never limit their possibilities. She's never come across as the flashy type.

    Buiding Schools in Africa
    Purchasing Cars for an entire audience

    It seems like she gives back quite a bit…



  31. 31

    Another liberal hypocrite. What a surprise. Global warming is the biggest hoax on the planet and the liberals pushing people to pay for their "carbon footprint" are the ones flying around in private planes. Liberals need to walk the walk or STFU!



  32. 32

    Im sure there was more to the speech but - YUCK.



  33. 33

    Her money keeps her warm at night. Oh, and Gayle.



  34. 34

    Gee, thanks Oprah! Most of the world will never get to experience the awesomeness of having a personal private jet or owning more than one home, but luckily we have you to point out how "great" that life is.

    You suck as a commencement speaker, by the way.



  35. 35

    she has gotten so out of touch with the little people that watch her show. her "caring" seems so contrived anymore



  36. 36

    Re: sticktocelebritynewsidiot – right wingers like you are frightening.

    Good for Oprah. Private jets ARE great and global warming is a hoax.
    .
    As for energy, we should be looking for ways to find MORE and SUSTAINABLE energy, not trying to force people back to the Stone Ages to conserve energy.
    .
    By the values she expresses when she's not talking politics, Oprah is a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. The problem is that her political philosophy is not well-formed and so she thinks she is a liberal.



  38. 38

    That gives her no reason to harp on global warming, if she's going to use her private jet, it makes her a hypocrite.



  39. 39

    So great to hear oprah say that and then do a show about the environment and recycling. I guess its up to the little people to fix the planet, not her.



  40. 40

    May she rot in hell after her private jet crashes with her in it.



  41. 41

    wow, what a hypocrite. she does that show on earth day then uses a private jet which wasts a bunch of fuel to go to duke university? what's wrong with taking a regular jet like everyone else? how nice of her to flaunt her billions of dollars in the faces of students that likely have huge student loan debts and won't be able to find a six-figure job the next day.



  42. 42

    get a hairstyle - you certainly can afford it!!!!!!



  43. 43

    She is so full of herself. I have had it w/ this celebrity ass licking my shit doesn't stink hypocrite.



  44. 44

    I was at the graduation and she certainly did talk abt herself and that gayle's son..who also graduated from Duke this weekend….was the best boy she knows….the BEST….she was sooo not friendly…Gayle was super nice…she let my aunt take a pic w/ her
