Hey, I did not know there was an artsyguy too! Just kidding. I think Oprah helps a lot of people and gives away a lot of money. She can be annoying, because she is so animated. I love how the actress on MAD TV portrays here. Overall I like her and her show, sometimes its a bit corny.

She is good at interviews and has done the a lot of people a lot of good, however, sometimes she is just too much to handle. almost as if some of the power has gone to her head.

I liked Oprah in the 80s, when Phil Donahue was still on too (this was in my early teens) - she has changed quite a bit and seems to have gotten too big for her own britches. Her show has changed a lot too - it almost seems as if she's picking people to accentuate her and her wonderful self, vs. human interest stories or hot topics like her show was back in the 80s. When she started her magazine and I found out that she poses for each and every single cover herself, that sort of sealed her fate in my book.

I was a fan from the early days but she's starting to wear thin. All the good she's done for those girls in Africa can't be overlooked or ignored but in the last few years she has become self absorbed and overbearing.

Not a fan, I think she started off with all the right intentions but now has way to big of an ego.

I'm neutral. I'm too young to have really followed her from the beginning, although I think she did an amazing job as Sophia on The Color Purple (my favorite movie). I don't watch her a lot. The shows that I have watched are very touching. She has some kind of umph about her though that casts people into spells and makes them go out and buy stuff. There's not a single person who has that power on me.

She would not be where she is without incredible confidence, chrisma and drive. If everyone liked her she would be dull and no one would watch.

When she started preaching and telling people there are many ways to go to heaven that pretty much turned me off all the way from her. Not that I watched her much anyways but I'll make it a point not to watch now.
