Media mogul Oprah Winfrey posed with her hands in her deep pockets last week (January 6, 2011) as she arrived for OWN – The Oprah Winfrey Network’s 2011 TCA Winter Press Tour Cocktail Party at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California.
America’s most beloved talk show host revealed recently that disappointment and failure once sent her into a eating binge that made her pack on the pounds…. at least 30 of em!
Oprah says her worst career moment was the box-office failure of her movie “Beloved.” It sent her into what she calls a “macaroni-and-cheese-eating tailspin.”
Winfrey starred as a former slave in the 1998 film based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The movie had the misfortune to open the same weekend as the slasher film, “Bride of Chucky.”
“Beloved” was a flop.
Winfrey tells Piers Morgan in an interview for his new CNN talk show that it was the only time she was ever depressed. She says she told her chef to make some mac-and-cheese to help her cope.
Asked how much, Winfrey says with a laugh, “About 30 pounds’ worth.” (source)
We all face disappointments at times. At least O can admit she’s still human even though she OWN’s just about everyting…
