Apparently, or I should say allegedly because this was told to me and I didn't hear it out of the whore....horse's mouth, but Oprah is once again showing how out of touch she truly is.
On her show this week, she apparently told her audiences to stop going out to restaurants for dinner in these tough economic times. I don't know if she suggested that we all get a personal chef like she and her husband Gayle have, but she doesn't think we can afford to eat out.
She wants us to stop spending our money on restaurant food.
Well, Oprah, if you'd put down the cookies and stop counting your money for a second, you might realize that the restaurant industry employs a fairly large number of people, and when you open your cake-hole and tell us to stop dining out you could be sending millions of people to the unemployment line; you could be closing many small businesses....and some large ones, too.
So, O, instead of asking people to stop dining out, how about this: Tell them to stop buying every little piece of crap just because you call it your 'Favorite Thing;' tell them to cancel their subscriptions to your vanity publication 'O' and read the free copy at the library....or better yet stop reading it altogether. Tell people to stop buying Kindles, and Oprah's Book Club selections; tell them to stop trying to get your boy Nate to redo their homes.
But don't tell them to take money out of someone elses pocket, or business, while you keep promoting your magazines, and your books and your shows and your favorite things.
The best thing you can do, O, since you are so out of touch with real people, is to tell your audiences to turn off their TVs and get a second job.....or even a first job in some cases.
Get real Oprah. We don't need you telling us how to live our lives and what to buy and where to spend our money. Go out and buy yourself another house or another car or another fancy dress and supplement your feelings of inadequacy by shoving a whole Chicago-style-deep-dish-pizza down your gullet.
