Oprah's father Vernon has been a barber for 50 years and had his own shop that entire time. last year he and Oprah's step mother bought a building and move the barber shop. The business then crashed and Oprah's dad was going to lose everything. Then at the foreclosure sale a woman named Oprah bid enough to keep the property in the family name. Vernon will be allowed to run the business but will report to Oprah for everything else. Well, it was nice of Oprah but I'm surprised she let it go to foreclosure unless she decided she wanted some good publicity and something to counteract the bad karma she is going to get from going on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
