Happy Birthday Oprah!


Today is Oprah Winfrey’s birthday and we should send her lots of birthday love…it has been a big year for Oprah and regardless of what people think of the big O – she is one major icon. Read on for more details about what she has been up to the past few months.

2011 was definitely a defining year for Oprah. In May last year she signed off on the final episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show. She tried to make her own network take-off and find an audience but that didn’t really take off. Then she announced that is now planning to make her return to TV with a new talk show. There was also all the silly rumors about her being B-Jay’s baby, Blue Ivy’s, godmother too…

Born January 29, 1954 makes Oprah 58 today – she has achieved some pretty massive things in those 58 years. Whatever people think of Oprah, no one can deny that she has done A LOT! As just one example, check out the pics from January 14th at the inaugural graduation of the Class of 2011 at Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

Happy birthday Oprah! Lets send her lots of bday lurve today – I’m sure she is celebrating somewhere in style!

    I was never a big fan of the Oprah show..Just never really around to watch it..But I watched the Behind the Scenes show of her last season and gained so much respect for the woman..Such an amazing journey from where she began to where she ended up..Her finale shows made me weep like a child..Happy Birthday to her..I’m sure it’s going to be a spectacular one with all of her damn money..
