She has a penis

After getting publicly eviscerated, he tapes one with "the host," where she checks to make sure he isn't "going to hurt himself" and reveals some startling information about herself.

Based on that I'd say she flirted with suicide.

Depending on what the big secret is, she may be flirting again.

She formed a babby at 17 but it died.

She didn't killed it, though, so no need to instain her.


There. Now you know.

Oprah can weather anything. In 6 minutes of TV time, she'll have every woman in America weeping with her as she explains why she mutilated that puppy when she was 19.

James Frey is a loser-poser whose 15 minutes are up. Way up.

I was given an advance reader copy of A Million Little Pieces by an assistant manager at Waldenbooks (along with about ten or twelve other books).
I read it and thought, "Eh." I wasn't terribly impressed.

I gave that copy to a friend and fellow RA in college who was majoring in Biology and Psychology. He wrote a paper for a Behavioral Psyche class on how this true story showed the effects of addiction and the consequences of such.

When the controversy came out, I waited a few days and asked him about his paper--which he hoped to turn into a thesis.

I'll have to send him a message on Facebook to see whatever came of that.

Don't have a lot of sympathy for Frey, but after seeing her tear him into a million little pieces on air, I have even less for her. She could use a touch of mortality.

CruiserTwelve: Always proofread your headlines.


Uhhh, yeah. That headline was ridiculous--he didn't tape their phone conversations, a character in his crappy book taped the conversations of a fictional talk show host.

You deceived us, submitter. I think you should go on my national talk show and explain yourself.

Her concern about him "hurting himself" gives this one away. Possible Oprah suicide attempt?

It's really hard for me to care about this either way.
 
2009-05-05 03:43:25 PM  
The Secret? Yeah, it's just The Law of Attraction. She's done about a million shows about it already, Frey. Big deal.

Unfortunately this. Its all a sham. Anything bad can be "overcome" with one of her (or her cohorts) techniques.

She's hocked diet books, and her weight keeps going up and down. Both become excellent show fodder her worshipers eat up. Etc. Etc.

The only thing that might possibly hurt Oprah at this point is if she killed and ate her own young. Maybe. Possibly. If there was, you know, live footage of her actually delivering and devouring the mutated spawn on the set.

Even then, it's hard to say, if Dr. Phil could interview her and get her to cry while she was explaining it was due to her being abducted by Satanist space aliens when she was in utero as a baby salamander.

So he's feeling depressed about taking abuse for selling fiction as fact, and she calls because she's worried about him and tells a personal story... and he uses this against her?

Quality guy there

actually, she claims that a family member abused her....

Freud's 'repressed memory' theory is just a theory, and i wonder if she implanted that whole thing into her own brain, and suddenly realized it never actually happened.

Aye. I'm not a fan of Oprah and I think people let her have way too much influence over them, but you don't whore yourself for her endorsement, then turn into a whiny vindictive biatch when she finds out you lied and calls you out.

You just don't fark with the O.

Oprah is almost at the "Outer God" level of celebrity. Far, far beyond mortal. Just an everlasting law of entertainment reality.

Oprah never gave a shiat about James Frey or his book.


The truth is what she REALLY wanted was Jennifer Aniston on her show for those big-time, celebrity-buzz, gossip-soaked crying-about-the-divorce ratings. Those are the shows that are the biggest moneymakers for her. Not her social crusades or her stupid book club. But the celebrity gossip interviews.

Now, Aniston is a smart business woman, and managed to secure movie rights to a book called A Million Little Pieces by one James Frey. She agreed to go on Oprah's show and whine about her breakup with Brad Pitt in exchange with making this hot little bestseller part of her book club, increasing its movie deal potential. It's all about money.

Oprah agrees, she probably thinks the book is a piece of shiat but hypes it up anyway, it shoots to #1, and the Aniston booking is secured.

So when Frey himself is on her show and Oprah looks furious, keep in mind -- she's not actually made at him. She's mad at Jennifer Aniston for putting a fast one over on her, for getting her to overexpose a pulp piece of trash.

I don't think JA's been invited on the show since.

Gah, it's so god damn obvious I can't believe I didn't think of it: Rush Limbaugh is Azathoth.

Trey and Matt. . .

Okay, Trey and Matt are Nyarlathotep. Supposed servant of Azathoth, but often going about things in a strange way or seemingly acting merely for their own amusement (Azathoth is called a blind idiot god with no mind, so having to creatively interpret his orders is probably just part of the job). They do often advance a conservative agenda although from a somewhat twisted point of view.

Seth MacFarlane is Cthulhu, high priest of the old ones to the outer gods (Old Ones worship Outer Gods, although I think that comes from Derleth, or another who played a role in "codifying" the mythos after Lovecraft died, something Lovecraft never intended to happen). He's a great worshipper of celebrity.
