So unfortunate.

Oprah Winfrey's charity, the Angel Network - which raised nearly $80 million in its efforts to help Hurricana Katrina victims and those living in third world countries - has stopped accepting donations and will be shutting down after its assets have been dispersed.

The website released a statement that says:

"Oprah remains deeply committed to philanthropy, and her new cable network - OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network - will continue to highlight charitable organizations in conjunction with its programming in the years ahead."

The Big O should be very proud of what she was able to accomplish with the Angel Network! We can't even imagine how many lives that charity bettered!

Thoughts??

    I remember it being reported that she just met with this financial adviser for the first time…wonder if his advice had anything to do with this? Who closes a charity without an explanation? Hmmm

    The Angel Network never made sense. For a filthy rich person to ask her audience for money and then to receive credit did not sound right.

    Aren't Haitians still in trouble and need help?
    The Angel Network couldn't have helped out?
    Bringing attention to Flopbama is frowned upon by the MFM.

    Now Oprah can concentrate all her efforts on what she's really interested in-FOOD! Forget the poor and downtrodden, honey…just have something to eat.

    I don't believe nothing Oprah have to say. She has billions and she is asking people to give money. She could have put 80 million in her self. Talking about her new show I hope it flop, her show is boring anyway.

    Ya, this isn't going to help Oprah's diminishing public love. Closing a charity? Who does that? Greedy rich people, that's who. I wonder where the rest of the money is going? Into her bank account? To support Obama? To buy her more dogs? To buy her more food???? To continue paying for Gail's lifestyle? Oprah is shady, I hope her new network bombs. I stopped watching her years and years ago.

    probably shutting down ahead of news of scandal — did do good though

    $80 millions dollars raised and EVERY CENT went into a NON-HOMELESS, NON-POOR person's bank account; and the problems they were "Going to Fix" are five times as bad!

    Something smells fishy, and it ain't Gayle.



  13. 13

    She must have big plans ahead when she leaves her show It'll be a wait and see.



  14. 14

    really don't understand that move :S it's like she talks the talks but doesn't walk the walk anymore.



  15. 15

    maybe she'll come up with another charity. that charity was mainly for hurricane katrina victims..

    Given the fact that donations to charities have dropped significantly due to the economy, it probably makes more sense to close the charity rather than to continue to have to eat into donations to cover expenses.

    I don't get all the haters - Oprah gives a lot of her own money to help out charities. How much have all of you given of your paychecks to help others?



  17. 17

    so why is it shutting down?

    I don't really get why you Americans always have to criticize your celebs for not donating enough. It is NOT their responsibility. Maybe if your Bush government at the time of Katrina actually used or inputted social programs to help this would have resulted in a better outcome. I know its hard for you to understand…. You are all going to go broke from having to pay your medical bills for the complications involved with obesity anyway so nobody gives a shit about your Country anymore.
