Eek! It is a TOUGH week to be Oprah Winfrey, folks!
She's already been injured trying to carry a large flower arrangement sent to her by Tyler Perry, has been harassed about looking "old as hell" by random Twitter users, and now, her troubled OWN network has been slapped with a lawsuit on the grounds of sex and disability discrimination, failure to prevent discrimination, retaliation and willful failure to pay wages upon discharge or termination!

The only way Heather Mills is overly helpful is if we feel the need to gouge our eyes out and need some last minute motivation!!
