Cleodacat said...

I'd always wondered where her name came from.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Go ahead sugar...thanks! I got this otherwise! Enty should've saved this for Throwback Thursday tomorrow...

sandybrook said...

It wasn't good 45 seconds introducing it 35 seconds telling us her name and what it means but she was kinda thin and had an Afro.

Renoblondee said...

Good, cause no way.

Sugar said...

Oprah talks about her audition tape.Then it showed her audition tape! Big hair is involved.
She explains the origin of her name, it's Harpo spelled backwards (!) even though her folks didn't really like Harpo Marx and didn't even own a tv (!)

B.O.R.I.N.G
~fin~

I love the tribute comment. Very hunger games. Unless Gayle makes an appearance, I don't have the patience to watch. Goodnight everyone & have a fantastic day!
:)

Living the shoulder pads btw.

Thank you, Sugar. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Sugar said...

Lady Heisenberg said...

Sugar said...

Sugar said...

Thanks Poodle! You're on deck for tomorrow, right?

Lady Heisenberg said...

Heisenheart melt oooooh I love that boy

Gayeld said...

No Sugar, don't do it!

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Let's not go that far. I'm still recovering from last week's panty-sniffing superhero. I don't get paid to watch heinous horrible shit. I'm not Andy Cohen here.

Gayeld said...

@Bee. Here I am!

Although, you probably meant Gale. ;-)

Bee Haven said...

Who sniffs pantys? *gag*

@Bee Haven, GUESS

Bee Haven said...

Reply to Gayeld ; most likely��

Bee Haven said...

Orpah = biblical name. Oprah = ???

TalksTooMuch said...

I actually watched Oprah when she first came out, she was just as bad (read: hilarious) as the rest of them. Except my heart will always belong to Phil Donahue and SJR's glasses

Henriette said...

I love her little afro. I wonder if more girls are named Oprah now, even though it is actually a misspelling of a Biblical name? I also could never understand why her mother didn't pick Ruth, Sarah, or Ester. Why just a footnote in the Bible?

Cocoa said...

Aw, Sugar, your summary wasn't read by all. :(

Lady Heisenberg said...

ROFL @cocoa.
Ok, here is a SECOND SUMMARY:
Oprah's vintage audition tape features the star cracking wise about the apparently rampant illiteracy within her family, and further establishes that nobody knows, or ever had a fucking clue, about the origins of her name. But Oprah IS rocking a fierce Natural, get it girrrrl
All I keep thinking about is
VINTAGE ED O'NEIL always going off about her

Cocoa said...

Ha! Lady H, well done. That was a very articulate and comprehensive summary of the key points of this meh. Bravo, come back tomorrow and break it all down for us! :)

Gayeld said...

LMAO. I just realized you probably meant Oprah's friend, GAYLE, not Gale from the Hunger Games. *g*

(Yet another) Gayle

I'm so glad Oprah no longer has a daytime TV show, and the influence she had. She became the most ass kissing "interviewer" on TV. She peddled new age snake oil to the masses. She was duped by the "million pieces" thing, and OH how I wonder what she thinks of the girls being kidnapped from school in Nigeria. You never heard about any African dictators on her show, so I guess they don't exist. It's been 50 years since most colonialism ended, so you can't blame that for the hellhole Africa is and was. Has her school produced any "scholars"?
