Why I'm Not Partying With Oprah...

Have you heard about Oprah's party on Michigan Avenue Tuesday?. If not, check out Partying With Oprah? Here's What To Expect - Courtesy of The Chicago Tribune.

10. I'm not much of an Oprah fan. Not that I ever really was. No I'm not bitter about not having my bigger fatter pregnant ass on her show telling some cutesy mad about you-like story on air. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out Oprah's Touch - I Shook Hands With Oprah. Seriously, I'm not bitter.

9. I'm so over her a-ha moments. Seriously, how old is she and shit still surprises her? Really?

8. Her 'best friend Gayle'. We all really know what you mean. How much does your bff get paid for appearing on your show on Fridays or whenever you get the itch to have her on the show?

7. Oprah's Favorite Things. Why does this sound like another television diva's "good things"? She can't even be original?

6. Whenever Oprah takes on a highly sensitive topic where a therapist really should be offering advice, and Oprah steps in and comments and offers advise like she's a professional. That's just wrong. It's not only wrong, it's dangerous.

5. The party - No camping out is allowed, yet the city is closing off streets at 12:01 p.m Monday through 5 a.m. Wednesday. Why? Do you seriously think people aren't going to camp out? Come on now. I bet people are loitering all over Michigan Avenue right now as I typed this.

4. The taping is due to start at 5pm Tuesday, what are all of those people waiting supposed to do until then? There is not much worse than a bored, sweaty crowd. And what about facilities? Are they going to be littering Michigan Avenue with Port-a-Johns? That's going to look attractive.

3. Did I mention it's standing room only? No seats. Yeah, that right there, seals the deal for me. I have a bad back, if I have to stand for more than 5 minutes it's a big problem. I'm really old and cranky, aren't I?

2. Did I mention there is no food? It's totally byo.

1. I'm not really a big fan of the Black Eyed Peas. And really, I'm not that big a fan of anyone or anything to camp out overnight or endure a standing room only event. Those days are over. Did I mention I'm old and cranky?

I don't watch either but I'd check it out if I lived near by. I'd love to be in the audience when she gives away a car or something. Other than that there is no act that I would be willing to sleep outside for.

Em said...

I'm afraid I was pretty much over the Big O awhile ago - just about the time she threw her weight behind the other Big O.

And her massive diamond earrings are just too damn distracting.

Lin said...

It's just plain and simple with me--I hate Oprah. And I hate the cult-like idiots who follow her every word. Really? You can't pick out your own books to read?? Don't get me started, Lola.

And, uh, no, I'm not going to see that goof.

Paula said...

I feel exactly the same way. Big deal...who cares? I quit watching her when she got so full of herself..which was pretty much a long time ago. And I hated it when she put her 'weight' behind Obama. And what the heck does she know about raising kids...when will her star quit shining? When she runs out of money, that's when...or her adoring public finally sees that is what Oprah is really all about

I've gone to the show twice, several years ago. The first time was nice, the second time I couldn't wait to get out of there.
I'm glad she promotes Chicago since I am sick of the Al Capone comments. But beyond that I haven't watched her show since the better early years.

I don't watch her much either. And there is nothing, and I mean NOTHING that I am willing to camp out for with no chairs and have to use a port-a-potty.

I use to watch her back in the 80's. Then I stop for a while. Every now and then I would stop and view a few minutes , Now I don,t watch her at all. Therefore I do not stay up on her going ons. I did hear she has sponsored a new show with Dr. Oz. That should be interesting. I will probably watch it once. I am not too impressed with him either.
