Exploded, sh must be sitting on it...
Metaphorically speaking of course...
Well, I didn’t know Weight Watchers was a publicly traded company. Learned something new.
Did Oprah add millions to her net worth, simply by the announcement that she’s on the Board of Directors now and a big stockholder? did she buy her stock before the price shot up????

Oprah is currently gigantic.
She’s the last person to give diet advice.

She's worth a couple of billion. Why does she want more? I don't understand these people. Why doesn't she directly help the poor blacks and poor women she pretends to care about? You know, pay their mortgage, send the children to a good school, anything?
If I had a pile of money like that, I'd set aside enough for me and my children and give the rest away. I'd love to be able to help those who really need it.

Oaf-rah needs to be on Weight Watchers, not investing in it.

She has set up a number of schools in Africa, among other things. She's done better with her money than Gates and Buffett.
