When Oprah Attacks!
James Frey cried like a bitch in an interview for Vanity Fair. Y'all remember him. He was the guy that Oprah endorsed for her book club, but then she felt opps, because his memoir was more fiction than fact.
According to James, Oprah matched his lying, by lying to him about her intentions regarding his appearance on the show. He didn't think he was going to get a tongue lashing from the all mighty Oprah. As The Great Gazoo would say on The Flintstones, "What a dumb, dumb."
I'm reminded of another time where Oprah dissed her guest. I'm not sure if it was intentional, but here's what happened. It's mad funny. She had Bette Milder on years ago, and this is how it went:
Oprah: I hear that you don't let your daughter watch television.
Bette: Yes, I feel tv is too violent and really dumbs down people.
Oprah: Speaking of television, you were recently featured in an episode of The Simpsons. Here's a clip everyone.
The clip plays a scene where the animated Bette is cleaning up along side a highway. A car passes by and a passenger throws litter out the window onto the side of the road. Bette becomes infuriated and creates a grenade, McGyver style, and throws it at the car that is speeding away. The car then explodes leaving a mushroom cloud of death.
The camera cuts back to Bette and Oprah. Bette looks like she just smelled a ripe stinky cheese, yet forces a smile onto her face.
Oprah: Oh, that was so funny.
Bette: Yes, yes it was.
Bette still looks like she smelled some stinky ass cheese, yet with less forced smile on her face.
