You know just when I thought this day was going to be so slow that I was actually going to have to talk about Amanda Bynes and whether she did or did not break up with that dude from The Hills who she was going out with for about two seconds, along comes this lovely story to make me happy I am writing today.
It is exactly what I expect from a tell-all book. It features a guy who really has nothing going for him except for the fact he used to date Oprah and a publisher who said, "what the hell, it will probably sell a few copies."
The man's name is Randolph Cook. Now Randolph has been in and out of Oprah's life since they dated back in 1985. He then sued her in 1997 when he tried to write this book that is now published, because publishing companies he alleged were scared of Oprah. They are probably still scared of Oprah, because, well she is Oprah, but he got it published this time. Now, for the most part his book is really boring, but people will go out and buy it based on this excerpt alone.
“Oprah made a “rock” of cocaine and baking soda in the tube and heated it, a method known as freebasing.
“[Oprah] then put the lit torch on the rock, inhaled and held the smoke in her lungs for a long time. When she finally exhaled, she began to shake violently as she put the pipe down, she had trouble catching her breath and her eyes got big as saucers.”
We smoked at least a couple of times a week. Sometimes we would smoke up until her limo was waiting to take her to the studio to perform her show…”
Now, Oprah in the past admitted to taking coke, but she said it was when she was a news anchor and not when she was hosting her own show. She said at that time that she was hooked on the drug by a guy she was dating and the only reason she did it was because she was hooked on the guy.
Well according to Randolph, he is not the guy Oprah was referring to, and he had never used coke until he met Oprah, and that she was the one who got him started on coke.
The one thing I tried not to read were his accounts of the sex he and Oprah had. Yeah, I didn't really need to read that. If you want to read more of the book or the website of the guy, click here.
