3 Celebrities Who Confronted Oprah Winfrey

As one of the world’s most enigmatic television personalities, Oprah Winfrey is an on-screen legend. She has been causing a stir around the world for decades and is usually seen in over 100 different countries. She is also the head of Harpo, a large production company worth tens of millions. She is, for many, a half-treasure. However, not everyone gets along with Oprah when they meet.

Who are the people who decided to hire him? Who ended up on her talk show and hurt her?

James Frey

Frey was a guest in Oprah’s book club section, and it was a very complicated experience for everyone involved. Frey was exposed during the book club segment for her memoir, “A Million Little Pieces,” which Oprah ironically tore into millions of pieces.

The book was more or less a complete fabrication, and Oprah was ashamed that she endorsed the book to others. Frey was brought back so Winfrey could snatch tapes from him, much to the amusement of the audience.

Jonathan Franck

Another victim of the Book Club, Franzen was someone who took offense at being selected. Pulling the show and saying that Winfrey used to choose “one-dimensional” reading material, Oprah was quick to deselect the book and tell Franzen he was no longer invited to the show. Naturally, Franzen was criticized quite a bit for this choice and eventually apologized and regretted the decision that was made. A lesson learned, hopefully.

David Letterman

When David Letterman spent the mid-’90s trying to pull off a terrible joke about Oprah Winfrey and Uma Thurman having confusing names, it turned out just as well as most of his jokes. Letterman got into a petty feud with Winfrey over the matter, and it took until 2005 — an entire decade — for the duo to settle the matter. We’re guessing Letterman saw the error in his ways and realized that his joke wasn’t all that unique, funny, or interesting — certainly not enough for it to create a years-long feud.
