Probably no one paid a bigger price for backing Obama than Oprah-—she was queen of talk, riding a huge wave of popularity, living in luxury, earning big BIG bucks when she very publicly backed 2008 Obama, holding fund-raisers at her posh Cali estate.
Her audiences were appalled-—not just at her backing Obama but that she did it so brazenly. Her TV ratings soon fell-—she lost her perch as daytime talk queen-—and is now struggling to maintain her failing cable slot-—which is eating up her dwindling fortune.
The story gets even more tawdry-—when she showed up at the WH-—Michele treated Oprah like a pariah and an interloper—barely giving her the time of day——refusing to go on Oprah’s talk show WRT healthy eating.
Not surprising Oprah is nowhere to be seen as Obama struggles in 2012.
