your semi-shocking pseudo-revelation of the day.

Oprah, in an interview with the Chicago Tribune:

She recently told her producers to not "even say those words [makeover show] to me anymore. I won't do it, not even for a number," she adds, referring to the high ratings those shows inevitably get. "Because if you could fix things with a haircut and a new wardrobe, we'd all be fixed. And we have to be part of the real awakening of women or we are part of the oppression of them. On every show."

i fell halfway out of my chair after i read this. literally.

now if only Oprah and i could come to an agreement on what the "real awakening of women" constitutes, i could start watching her show with something akin to conscience. but one never knows...

That's the most feminist thing I've ever heard come out of her mouth. Who stole Oprah?
