    OWN is boring and she has not become WAY TOO FULL OF HERSELF. She forgot her roots, and I get annoyed with her all the time. I hate her magazine — promoting WAY OVER PRICED STUFF MOST OF US CAN'T AFFORD. She's too entitled now and forgets some of us are not wealthy — you know — somewhere she used to be. Dumbest thing ever is her "favorite things" she does every year. A bunch of overpriced stuff that most of us can't afford. And her show where she talks about people that changed her life, and how we should change ours? I find it too condescending. Now, that OWN is not profiting too well, maybe that will take her down a notch. She needs to be taken down a notch. Used to love her. It's unfortunate. Wealth got the best of her, which it does to all these overpaid stars. She is no different. She needs to come back down to earth — where she once way. And that is that.

    Maybe no ill intentions, Perez, but she, JUST LIKE YOU, is too full of herself. You both forget we can make you, and we can break you too. It happens all the time when people become too full of themselves and too arrogant. You are both right there.

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – Totally agree. I used to watch her, but quit when it became for rich people and condescending to the rest of us. The last show I watched was about health and she was talking about this huge infrared home sauna unit that is so great for your health. When she said, 'it is affordable - only $4000, and you can just have it installed in a room you don't use', I turned off the tv and have never watched her again.

    just another media whore who has the same " i can do anything i want, because i'm oh so special" attitude. cheap ass bitch.

    wheres my post i was sticking up for her.

    It's weird but I actually respect her a lot more now. She is such a huge personality and it's kind of cool to see her (and not her paying someone else) employing promotional tactics that a local business in my own town would use. No one can criticize Oprah for being desperate because she has given more than any one of the bitter individual who would be dumb enough to call her desperate. Full of herself…conceited…preachy…all true, but when is the last time you opened a school in a third world country?

    I expected better grammar from the broadcasting queen. Total fail.

    Oprah should rename OWN, the EGO network. That is what it is that channel a temple to her own self.



  9. 9

    Even if Oprah does need to be "taken down a notch", her crappy ratings at OWN should take care of that. That being said, she probably could offer a better perspective of Whitney than what we've seen so far. Personally, I would like to see this…..



  10. 10

    Whatever. She will somehow make another 10 million out this little incident, feed a third world country, write a book, hire Gail to play Whitney in the movie Oprah is going to direct, and start another network just for the hell of it…

    Good lord people need to stop being soooo incredibly sensitive and stop reading so much into what is being said……. She was not out of line nor sounded like she was begging for petes sake!! Is it not the same when other folks in celebrityville shout out about their projects etc???? I have a love/dislike for her personally but seriously people just go way overboard on things that if you think about it…… Really DON'T matter nor do they have any impact on your life…… Or do they? Just my 2cents LOL!



  12. 12

    oh we ALL know no one watches OWN…..it's going down the gurgler…no wonder it isn't available outside of the USA.



  13. 13

    She is a business owner though!



  14. 14

    People are so sensitive these days, don't see anything wrong with using the power of social media. And I think OWN is worth a watch.



  15. 15

    That she defends her actions as a harmless request, in a seemingly flippant kind of way, is perplexing. A real network owner of a real network would know, long before taking action, that blatantly asking for Nielsen ratings is highly unethical and completely unprofessional. The fact that she's been involved in the industry for such a long time, it's hard to believe she would be unfamiliar with the ethics of the industry. Not buying uneducated for unethical desperation. It's obvious Oprah doesn't want to take the time to learn the art of successfully promoting via social media ( probably because it's so time-consuming), but then again every textbook needs to publish bad examples, as well as the good, and Oprah may need the income after the OWN network goes down like a Costa cruise.

    Give me a car, give me a fucking car Oprah. Give me a fucking car bitch



  17. 17

    Lmao, and then you finish the story by begging for followers on FB and Tw. The hypocrisy of Perez Hilton at it's finest.



  18. 18

    Glad this shit is happening to her. The way she used people for ratings. Oprah forgot where the he'll she came from. I remember her milking the 2009 situation. She wants viewers tell her to call her man Jay-Z. I hope her own station crap out. I really want to know the real reason for Gail leaving. Humm Karma is a bitch

    I don't see the problem here…?? So she asked people to watch her Network.. big F**CK'n deal!! It's not differnt then a politician asking people to vote for them on election day or Ryan Seacrest yapping in our ear to VOTE VOTE VOTE for our favourite… she has done no harm here and Neilson can suck on it!!! Oh.. and for those who commented that OWN is not outside the States, …we have it in Canada!



  20. 20

    if she wasn't begging for viewers and higher nielsen ratings, then why did she include in the tweet " especially if u have a Neilsen box."



  21. 21

    "Watch me or I'll eat you". Desperate…maybe, unethical..probably (Nielsen has clear rules), narcissistic..absolutely. Who is on the cover of Oprah magazine every month? Why Oprah of course!



  22. 22

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – Except that rarely happens. LOL we make tons of talentless twats famous and rich. Society is fickle and most celebrities are just fads. The only time they fade into oblivion is simply because people grow tired and bored of them and they SLOWLY fade.

    Sadly people are too stupid and just it continue. Jersey Shore should of ended 2 episodes in..but here they are, TV show is booming, making millions..lalalala



  23. 23

    WOW! First tweet WAS desperate. THe follow up tweets were dishonest and defensive. Oh how the mighty have fallen.



  24. 24

    Opra no rite smrt.



  25. 25

    huge faux pas Oprah…..HUGE!
    does smack of desperation
    just goes to remind us tat Oprah doen'st walk on water- contrary to what her fans think
    she has the same emotions as the rest of us
    and makes mistakes just like the rest of us
    sadly she seems to have a bit of an overinflated opinion of her powers of influence/persuasion since her daily network show has ended
    she is not nearly as relevant in peoples lives as she once was
    .
    also watching a re-run of something isn't a top priority
    .
    if Oprah was such a fan/friend of Whitney's I wonder if she herself ever talked to her in an effort to convince her to get some serius help for her addictions
    that would have been a far better use of her of her influence/persuasion than trying to artifically inflate her Neilson ratings for her not so successful network!
    …….just saying…..

    I tweeted one of these comments posted in the article. My issue was about the request happening in mid-Grammy broadcast. People were watching the Grammy's in honor of Oprah's professed "friend" Whitney Houston who had been dead for what, 24 hours. It just seemed really, really crass to ask people to turn off a show honoring the memory of one of our greatest talents. In fact, they were such great friends you can watch a re-run of her show with Whitney… on OWN. Its all about priorities I guess

    Re: Munchkinsmom
    shouting out her project is fine
    as you said- many others do it
    but I can't remember ever hearing anyone specicifly addressing those with Neilson boxes to assert their influence to affect the Neilson ratings that sponsors pay attention to ….so it translates into $$$$
    that is where she stepped over the line to me



  28. 28

    Re: growingupgranby – Thanks for sharing this - most of us didn't know about the timing. That to me is what makes it unethical, but in a broader sense. Like you said, the issue is about it being in really poor taste. This Neilson box thing is just ridiculous.



  29. 29

    Oh please there are A LOT worst things that are tweeted than this. Get over it.



  30. 30

    Oprah's a big racist douche.. enough said



  31. 31

    Love the last one! Made me LOL.



  32. 32

    I don't doubt for a second that Oprah only cares about ratings for her failing network. Such a shame she did that. So very unclassy if u ask me.



  33. 33

    Oprah is the spawn of the devil. Like the devil, she is seeking out minions any way she can. Only an idiot would think that Oprah is not out for Oprah. Someone once stated that she should be "sainted" but how does that work when you are THE EVIL BITCH OF THE WORLD!!!!! (sorry but that woman has sucked the last penny out of so many people who really believed in her. she is OVER!!!) Love you Perez!
