For the last few days I’ve seen headlines that Oprah vacations in Fiji after an Australian tour. WHO CARES? It’s not a secret, I’m not an Oprah fan. Don’t get me wrong, I admire the woman and all she’s done, I do like her “My Favorite Things” shows but that’s just to see how excited the audience gets when they all get new refrigerators and cars.
I met Oprah once and she was nice and not stuck up as other celebrities I’ve met (Charleston Heston comes to mind here) but I don’t understand why people worship her the way they do. The way the media puts it Oprah is up on a pedistal a deity and that I just can’t seem to grasp. Maybe it’s the media’s treatment of Oprah that’s turned me off, I’m not sure but I’m tired of the world according to Saint Oprah.
Now the new thing is Prince William and fiance Kate Middleton. Yes he’s part of the Royal Family. As a matter of fact he’s an important part since he’s in direct line to be king. I’ll also give it to him for being good looking but I really don’t care that he and Kate made their first public appearance since their engagement. Why is the WORLD so focused on what these people do and where they go.
I can understand when the news reports when Obama is on vacation with his family or they’re away on a quiet weekend at Camp David. I mean. he is our nation’s leader and it’s nice to know where he’s at when he’s needed but should we care who in Hollywood is in rehab, who just got a speeding ticket or DUI and why should I care who slept with who (or is that whom).
I’m NOT interested in the exploits of William and Kate during the rest of their engagement and I’m certainly NOT looking forward to he media hoopla surrounding their wedding. We’ve already gotten a glimpse of their first china pattern and I’m sure it’s going to be a repeat of Charles and Diana with the pre-wedding, the parade to the church, the ceremony and all the hoopla after the ceremony being broadcast ALL DAY.
I’m so glad I have over 200 TV channels to choose from on that day, I’m just hoping at least one of them is William and Kate free.
