Oprah Winfrey hits 200 lbs, blames food

December 9th, 2008 // 102 Comments

Oprah Winfrey has admittedly “fallen off the wagon” and now weighs in at 200 pounds. She opens up about her personal battle in the upcoming issue of O Magazine where she admits to over-eating and not being able to fit in her gown for President-elect Obama’s inauguration. The AP reports:

“I had a dress on the vision board, but I’m not sure that’s gonna fit,” Winfrey said. “So I have to work on something else.”
“I’m mad at myself,” Winfrey writes in an article provided early to The Associated Press by Harpo Productions.
“I’m embarrassed,” she writes. “I can’t believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I’m still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, `How did I let this happen again?’”
In the piece, Winfrey, 54, details her recent struggles with an out-of-balance thyroid and how the condition made her develop “a fear of working out.” She says she’s added 40 pounds to her frame since she weighed 160 pounds in 2006.
“Yes, you’re adding correctly; that means the dreaded 2-0-0,” Winfrey writes. “I was so frustrated I started eating whatever I wanted — and that’s never good.”

Oprah added: “For starters, I’ve eaten half of this laptop I’m typing on. My studio audience from yesterday? Let’s just say they went beautifully with a delicious cranberry relish. Dr. Phil’s career? Drowned that mother in chocolate sauce then watched an entire season of Desperate Housewives. I never even left the couch!
But the important thing to remember is I’m still every woman – and also rich enough to get away with murder, so nobody make fun of my weight.”

    Oprah is the source of all evil.

    For real.

    Every time her show airs American women get a little dumber.

    “Winfrey, 54, details her recent struggles with an out-of-balance thyroid and how the condition made her develop “a fear of working out.”

    Great rationalization…..lard ass.


  7. OMFG.
    Oprah’s evil empire is worth billions, yet she can’t hire a nutritionist or a trainer? How about she should get her jaw wired shut, then she couldn’t eat or do that dumb ass show…

  8. JJ

    She may be rich but she’s still fat. Lay off the chitlins girlfriend.

  9. Bob

    Yes, it’s hard work to not get fat, especially in today’s “more” culture….

    But it can be done. Hard work and committment. It’s not the food’s fault…. grrrr


  10. Pathetic Worm

    Yeah, out-of-balance thyroid. Like it’s my livers fault that I’m an alcoholic.

  11. Jrz

    “A fear of working out?” What’s that called Fitaphobia?
    Two-O! O!

  12. Moby Dick

    YARRRR LADS< MAN THE HARPOON!!!! This’ll feed the village for a week.

  13. Not 4 Obama

    Like Osama Obama lots of people think she is the perfect human being. Far from it. She was just smart and lucky.
    Simple things to do to lose that weight Opra: Eat less, move around more.

  14. Jesse

    “out-of-balance thyroid” = code for “KFC genetics”

  15. Sam

    “Like Osama Obama lots of people think she is the perfect human being. Far from it. She was just smart and lucky.”

    Ah, jealousy. As ugly as ever. Neither Obama nor Oprah are “just” anything. As opposed to you. You’re just sitting at your computer anonymously lashing out bitterly at successful people.

    For her Favorite Things show this year the audience will be going home with cases of Funyons, hot dog carts, 100 lbs. of pork and elastic-waist pants

  17. Richard Simmons

    A tub of ass with the mouth to match.
    Maybe her “out of balance thyroid” will transform to an aneurysm.
    The world would be a much more pleasant….

  18. JustMoi

    Meh. She’s a big girl. Always has been. Genetics come into play, and sometimes no matter how hard you fight, you have to fight harder to beat genetics. Not saying it can’t be done…it can.

    I’ll take her weight, and her billions..anyday of the week!

  19. p0nk

    She just needs to do a sex video where she gets peed on and half the country will think she’s hot.

  20. Parker

    Huzzah! An out of balance thyroid is all it was! And all along I’ve been thinking she’s just fat. Thankfully she’s set the record straight and we now all know that inside every fat person is a skinny person with a thyroid problem. Good for you, Oinkra Pigfrey. Have another ham sandwich dear. It’s not your fault you’re fat. If it wasn’t for your thyroid you’d be able to eat to your heart’s content then lay about like a lump all day and not gain a pound. Such a shame.

    Free Willy? No, Free Oinkra I say! Away, away! And back to the sea to be happy and free in everlasting neutral buoyancy!

  21. Awww…poor Ofrah..

    I remember a long time ago I used to work with ths BIG girl (probably over 200 lbs.) and she was helping this obese woman in a wheelchair with an oxygen tank. When she was gone, she turned to me and said “If I ever get so fat that I need an oxygen tank, KILL ME!!!

    #10 LMAO!!

  22. Doc

    Basically when one is fat and wants to overeat; one has to find something else to do to replace eating like a hobbie. Oprah is addicted to food and it controls her life which is very sad.

  23. Joe

    Come on, sheeple, she doesn’t really feel bad. She feels more powerful than ever at this moment, for an obvious reason. She makes these “I’m struggling with my weight” statements and her audience thinks she understands them and they follower her even more devotedly.

    Oprah is strong because women are weak.

  24. dave

    I’d still pound the hell out of that fat ass!

  25. Chauncey Gardner


    It’s impossible for American women to get any dumber. Unless Oprah decides to eat them, and they go along with it because she’s Oprah.

  26. Julie

    her fake hair looks good.

  27. Erica

    Her butt’s almost as big dark and hairy as Kim Kardashian’s.

  28. Barrytone

    Must’ve been all that Barack cock. Guess semen really does have 20,000 calories a pop.

  29. Ananana

    i reckon she invests all her money not on a nutritionist or a personal trainer, but on a Excuse-A-Rator…

  30. drewski2u

    Greeeeaaaaaaaatttttt. So when she lost all that weight back in the day, she claimed, “…if I can do it, any woman can!!!!” This despite the fact that she had countless personal trainers, countless personal chefs, and admitted to working out 4 hours a day. Not exactly the resources available to your average american porker. So what happens now that their biggest inspiration has gone sumo? There is a silver lining to this though. The impending run on Häagen-Dazs and spandex could possibly pull our economy back from the brink…….

  31. SingSinger

    Dear God,

    I don’t even believe in you, but I just might if you do me a favor.

    Please kill Oprah.

    Could she somehow take Rachel Ray and Dr. Phil with her?



  32. Melly J

    That weave alone weighs a ton – 200 my a**! Luv #10, 14, & 16 comments, heheee

  33. friendlystoner

    i wouldnt leave small children round her in case she got peckish, put them in a giant burger bun, covered them in relish and swallowed them whole.

  34. FRIST!!!

    Porch monkey’s do not have any self control, this is why she is so fat. The only time you see physically fit jungle bunnies is in prison, where they have all day to lift wieghts, and in professional sports, where half the coons end up in prison lifting weights anyway.

  36. Sexual positions

    I guess this means Gayle gets on top.

  37. It's not you, it's me

    ~37~ Is that you Ted from LA? It sure sounds like you.

  38. Ardgelina

    #35 so i’m guessing you haven’t heard of Usain bolt. Or u don’t watch tv, or ever heard of the NFL or NBA??? I wonder what ur body fat percentage is?

  39. O.J. Simpson

    I guess that’s why you don’t see Steadman around her anymore. He chose to eat a leaner pork!

  40. the truth

    She’s more powerful and more important than all of you combined.

  41. Sickle Cell sent from God

    Thank God for the sickle cell !!!

  42. Saint Massa'

    I hope she can make the stage for Obooma’s inaguration, that way when God reigns down his fury upon that obomination, Oprah can be among the dead….

  43. God

    41–Speak for yourself, mortal.

  44. Carlton Banks

    Regarding the release of Hancock 2:
    I don’t buy the premise of a black superhero, let alone Will Smiff. Kinda like how they put Smiff in Maverick as a black Jim West. In reality he would’ve been captured and turned into a slave back then.

    And if a black did have superpowers, he’d most likely be a villain, using his powers to loot and steal and rape white women, so he could get payback for 400 years of oppression by Whitey, or however many years they’re claiming these days….

  45. Sid

    #43 – I’m not sure Obama’s inauguration will be a big deal, since the Republicans are making such a huge comeback already and are on the verge of re-taking power.

    …dang, I almost made it through that with a straight face… AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

  46. FRIST!!!

    remember the “Million Man March”? (where only 5,000 black people actually showed up, but the census was taken by a black guy, and he came up with a million.) I guess it sounds better then the 4,628 Man March.

    And the only reason that many blacks showed up is because one of the housing projects in DC lost power temporarily, so none of the Tar babies could play their X-box games for a while, so they all came out at once to go rob some white people. So it really wasn’t even a march, it was a gathering of welfare recipients in search of free shit….

  47. Andrew

    #45 – you’re saying that about a black actor (Will Smith) who could buy and sell you a thousand times over, in a story about a black celebrity (Oprah) who could buy and sell you a million times over. You’re nothing.

  48. God

    #42–you’re welcome? *makes notation on “EXCLUDE” list

    #43–I won’t be reigning my fury that day. I’m taking an extended long holiday weekend and I’ll be travelling home from Barbados that day.

    #32–Look, I didn’t believe in miracles myself until the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey Team…so….but….anyway…I’ll see what I can do about Phil McGraw. I hate him too.

    #7–No, she can’t. And watch that “Fucking” shit when you address me, dammit.

  49. George Best

    You mean she has a disease that gives her a fear of working out?

    Yeah black folks have always had a disease which gives them a fear of working in some form or fashion.

    If she only weighs 200, how tall is she 4 ft?

    Maybe Obama has the answer and could redistribute the fat to others.

  50. 12= 32

    Hahaha, first post since the new fish writer that makes me laugh.

    So yeah, she’s fat because she lacks self control and a brain to come up with better excuses.
    I would never take her money if it came with her physical appearance. What for? To spend it all in high end clothes, custom made because fat ass can’t fit in regular sizes, so it looks terrible anyway? Hell naw.

    @41, Definetly, SPEAK FOR YOURSELF.
