Poor Oprah

I mean it. Did anyone see today's episode about her road trip with Gayle? She stopped in a Dairy Queen and had a small vanilla ice cream cone, and her personal trainer CHEWED her out the entire time she was eating it. UGH! Doesn't he realize how he's reinforcing her bad relationship with food? She didn't even get to really enjoy it. Double UGH. She looks AWESOME again, and she'd been working out even on the road. How terrible!

i didn't see it-but i'm assuming she pays this guy to "push" her and keep her motivated-so maybe she thinks she needs to hear that stuff?

i'd be pissed if he talked like that while i was eating an ice cream! he'd be fired!

LOL!! If someone ruined MY ice cream treat there'd be hell to pay!!! The above poster is probably right though--maybe that's what she needs.

I saw it too- it was really horrible. She made a conscious decision to eat it- and I swear it was one of those teeny tiny cones. Yes, he gets paid to push her, but berate her? It was sad.

Whatever. She's a grown women. She wanted that, she pays him to do that. Why would you pity her for her choice?

AND she chose to allow it to be filmed and shown. i don't think she feels about it the way some have described their feelings here. maybe without that approach, she would have eaten more...

Yes, poor Oprah. She's rich enough to have a personal trainer follow her everywhere. Life is hard for her.

I didn't see it! I guess it is her business. I don't know why she would put up with that attitude and then broadcast it all over the world. Oprah be kind to yourself!

to the 1212 poster

just because she has amassed a fortune - by working for it tirelessly for many years - is no reason to think she does not have the same problems with weight issues-personal trainer, or not-as the rest of us. wouldn't you pay for a personal trainer if you could afford it? why should her ability to pay for something we'd all like be held against her?

she can do what she wants with her money, good for her.


don't expect me to feel sorry for someone who has enough money to pay a guy to follow her around and make her feel bad about eating things. If that's having a hard life, sign me up.

i think it must be very difficult to be such a public person with such a personal problem, no matter what she can afford or who she is able to pay for whatever. it shows that even though you may seem to have it all, there are some problems that know not race, financial worth, fame, etc. i have compassion for her struggle no matter how she handles it.
