Oprah Winfrey's Self-Empowerment Tour a Travesty! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Oprah Winfrey might be coming to an arena near you.

The 60-year-old media mogul announced Wednesday that she would embark on an eight-city "The Life You Want` tour, with workshops and group activities revolving around empowerment, resilience and authenticity."



Tickets start at $99 and range up to $999, I guess self-empowerment and self-discovery doesn`t come cheap. You have to pay through the nose to hear the New Age claptrap that comes out of Oprah`s mouth.

The top price will getyou a prime arena seat, a swag bag and an opportunity to meet the talk show queen. Oprah should try a little bit of humility, it goes a lot way. Can you imagine the Pope charging $999 for a private audience?

It`s hilarious to hear Oprah pontificate on authenticity, there`s nothing authentic about her from her wig to her designer shoes.

Oprah`s self-aggrandizing tour will appeal mainly to white suburban women who salivate at the prospect of hearing pearls of wisdom from their Black Mammy.

Thank goodness most young people, of all ethnicities, are too hip to pay Oprah any attention.
