There has probably been nothing more embarrassing for James Frey than to have to go on Oprah's show and have her scold him for an hour about the falsehoods in his book, A Million Little Pieces. The guy was basically raked over the coals for an hour and just took it. He took it despite the fact that, according to him at least, he was brought there to be part of a panel, and instead found out that he would be the only person on the panel. I actually can't believe he stayed. He knew he was going to be embarrassed but he stayed anyway. Well, that was in 2006. A month later, his then publisher dropped him and I doubt anyone ever thought they would hear about him again.
Then, last fall, Oprah meditated. When she got done meditating, she decided to call James Frey and apologize to him for what she had done. In an interview with Vanity Fair, James said that Oprah said, that she owed him an apology and that the harshness in the interview towards him resulted from her sense of feeling betrayed.
Well, now that they have kissed and made up, perhaps she will let him come on the program again and plug his new book. Hell, maybe she will even give him a television show and he and Jenny McCarthy can co-host.
