One day I will run a trashy tabloid. Until then, this will have to suffice.

Oprah used "I" 119 times on her show yesterday

Click to watch (Jan. 26) Several staffers from Harpo tell TMZ, Oprah Winfrey has taken the James Frey scandal "hard." One says she has been "very stressed out and upset about it." The staffers say Oprah was relieved when the show was over and the staff felt she did a great job. But today at Harpo, mum is the word. It is not the subject of office chit chat. There has been criticism that Oprah pulled a "Dan Rather" by not immediately challenging Frey when the scandal first broke. Instead, she publically defended him. So, was yesterday's TV confrontation about Frey or Oprah herself? TMZ checked the tape, and found that Oprah used the word "I" 119 times during the show. And finally, this. Oprah says, before the scandal broke, her dentist questioned Frey's claim that he had undergone two root canals without the comfort of novocaine. She says her dentist said "that could not have happened." So why after the scandal first broke didn't Oprah connect the dots, insteading of defending Frey on 'Larry King Live'? Just asking. [TMZ]

    I guess Oprah needed to boost her ratings.I watched this. I found it to be very upsetting. I hope he doesn't harm himself.I know that some parts weren't true but what books are 100% true.It still was a good book and is still #5 on the Bestseller list. She could have handled it better I think.

    I agree 100% with 3:45 & 4:01. I can't stand her and who cares if the book isn't all true? Who is SHE that she thinks it's HER job to publicly humiliate him? He wrote a book and made a lot of money so kudos to him!

    Love the blog, btw!

    I can't believe what a big deal it became. He embellished, at most. It's not like he murdered anyone. Glad to see other people can't stand Oprah. Jon Stewart had a good bit about it on the Daily Show tonight (comparing with so-called "news" stories where nobody cares about veracity or journalism). He ended with "When will Oprah realize that Dr. Phil is full of s**t?" I've been asking that question for a long time.
