Let's Talk To Oprah

Recommended Posts

Oprah tends to do shows based on topics of interest to people she knows. For example, she just did a whole show on the topic of Russell Simmons' book, Do You. Oprah does not have celiac disease, and it is NOT her responsibility to do a show about it.

ELISABETH HASSELBECK DOES have celiac disease and SHE should be using HER celebrity status to push the issue and SHE should talk to Oprah about how she felt the best she ever had while on Survivor- eating only fish and rice! (the mini-segment The View did on celiac disease was downplaying and confusing- it seemed her mission was to show how NORMAL she is rather than to educate people about it)

Maybe we can get her to realize most of her audience has a 1% chance of having it.
