Oprah Opens Up.

In what has become a very competitive week of morning television, Oprah Winfrey went on CBS this Morning today to speak about the struggling OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network.) Here’s some significant quotes from the interview. (Scroll down for the video!)

Would she do this all over again?

“Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else … I didn’t think it was going to be easy. But if I knew then, what I know now I would have made some different choices.”

The biggest mistake:

“If I were writing a book about it I could call the book 101 Mistakes. …Launching when we we really weren’t ready to launch, and doing that because you’d announced that you were going to do it. It is like having the wedding when you know you’re not ready and you’re walking down the aisle and you’re saying ‘uh, I don’t know if we should be walking down the aisle, maybe we should have postponed this’ … but now it’s really Monday morning quarterbacking.

On success and failure:

“I’ve lived in this sort of glow for the past – I would say ten years at least because the climb up was also not as easy as everybody remembers. But last week I saw one headline that really sort of knocked me off cnter. I was the USA Today headline that said “Oprah Not Quire Standing On Her OWN‘ …and it just did (pantomimes sticking a knife in her chest) UUuhhhhhhh…”

On why she won’t quit:

“I believe that I am here to fulfill a calling… because I am a female who is African American who has been so blessed in the world – there is never going tobe a time to quit. I will die in the midst of doing what I love to do and that is using my voice and using my life to try to inspire people and to live the best of theirs.”

Looking ahead:

“Because you failed at something - which we haven’t failed – but because you failed does not make you a failure.  And when you know that in the core of yourself you can keep trying, or you can use whatever is happening in that moment to say ‘maybe I need to move in a new direction.'”

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

on

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!
