Do you miss Oprah? Are you mid afternoon filled with bad programming? If so Oprah is here to help. She will be returning to television in what is affectionately termed ‘Oprah’s Life Class’. Brought to you exclusively by none other than OWN, Oprah’s network. Monday night marked the Oprah Winfrey Network’s re-launch which premiered ‘The Rosie O’Donnell’ show and ‘Lifeclass’. OWN has experienced some difficulty in ratings and is hoping these two energetic new shows will help boost those ratings.
In ‘Lifeclass’ Oprah talks about the struggles and experiences she has gone through in her life. She looks back on clips from ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ and checks in with highlighted guests in taped, present day interviews. In the first segment she recalls her famous “fat wagon” episode where she wheeled over 60 pounds of fat onto her daytime talk show stage and used it as a metaphor for one’s ego. After losing all the extra weight she was carrying she admitted that she had basically starved herself on a liquid diet for four months and avoided situations with food. For example when she was supposed to leave for a vacation in France she gave the trip to her friends so she would not be tempted to indulge in food. “I actually thought at the time that being thin made me better,” she said. In speaking about making appearances with her partner Stedman Graham she would say, “I knew that when people would see us together that was the first thing they were thinking…what’s he doing with this fat girl?”
