A controversial unofficial biography is set to hit the shelves about the life of media mogul Oprah Winfrey. Inside the publication are shocking allegations claiming that Oprah lied about being sexually abused as a child, embellished stories of her poor upbringing and sold her body as a prostitute. Written by investigative journalist and author Kitty Kelley, the book is raising eyebrows and is already ranked No. 3 on Amazon’s list of best-sellers just hours after being released.
Kitty gathered her information for “Oprah” from various members of Oprah’s family including her cousin Katherine Carr Esters. Esters says Oprah was never as poor as she claims after dispelling stories about wearing potato sacks for clothing and befriending cockroaches in her Mississippi home.
Instead Esters says her cousin told her she lied about her past because “the truth is boring.”
“Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches I have no idea. I’ve confronted her and asked, ‘Why do you tell such lies?’ Oprah told me, ‘That’s what people want to hear. The truth is boring.’”
Kelly also alleges that Winfrey was so promiscuous as a teen that she began prostituting herself and turned tricks.
She claims that Oprah was set to reveal her shocking past herself in a 1993 autobiography that was never released.
There also allegations that Oprah lied about her sexual abuse as a child and is a lesbian who at one time pursued ABC correspondent Diane Sawyer and is now using her fiancé Stedman as a cover-up.
Her father Vernon Winfrey also chimed in on the book expressing his detest for her best friend Gayle King.
He calls her a “dirt hog” and “street heifer” and says, “She’s become too close to that woman Gayle.”
Nas went to court Monday over his divorce with Kelis and walked out a little lighter in the wallet. According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Nas had to immediately fork over $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support. The judge also ordered Nas to pay $10,000/month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 he owes Kelis. Nas also has to pay 90% of Kelis’ legal fees in the amount of $155,787.28. Lastly, Nas has to pay $48,549.83 to cover Kelis’ accounting expenses. The lesson, as always – when Laura Wasser reps your ex, settle as quickly as possible. Nas just learned that the hard way.
SouljaBoyTellem was recently spotted partying at club Sobe Live in Miami getting drunk and smoking weed up in the club. I’m sure my boy Ca$h will be quick to pull my card, call me a prude and come to Souljaboy’s defense. What I don’t understand is why these artist don’t consider their audience when they act. Especially Souljaboy, a brand more than any particular “artist” he’s a product of his following…a very YOUNG following. A following that is told when to go to bed and has report cards still so to be smoking weed in eyesight of a paparazzi camera and drinking openly in the club is not a wise career decision. Just a thought and this is coming from a person whose in the past defended his marketing prowess.
