  1. This is absolute BULLSHIT! Oprah’s right leg doesn’t even weigh 135 lbs. Plz who do you people think you are kidding. I used to like this website, but I now think everything is suspect if you can really put this garbage on your website.

  2. When was this article written? She can NOT fit in a size 8 at 150 lbs. She is the same height as me and believe me —- she can’t.

  3. Many people lie about their real stats. I was in the USMC you can not lie there about anything because they give you a background check. Well lets say thank God that Oprah did not qualifiy for the USMC everything would be on the table now including becoming Miss Black Tennesse, if you had a baby you do not qualify so she lied about that also!!!!

    • Deborah, very harsh comments… Do you personally know Oprah? Does it matter what she does or says for you to really make a negative comment about her. You should be proud to be a marine and not use it to degrate others. Didn’t the marines teach you respect and dignity. Do you have a truthful past? Can you honestly say you never lied about your weight, height, or size? Do you live an honest life!!!!

  4. I’m not to sure about Oprah being 170lbs, but they say television puts extra weight on you… either way she’s still the best and her weight doesn’t stand up to her accomplishments 🙂

  5. I am with my sister USMC. You can not lie about your body in boot camp. The DI’s know!!! We’ll sister Marine do know this , Opray would have never qualify to be a USMC. Yea what about having a baby and being Miss Tennessee, how did she get away with that. Can’t lie in the Marines

    My name is on the wall for women vets serve
    Ask Oprah how she got her name on a little drive in Chicago.
    Mayor Daily and a lot of money. Hmmmmm
    Go to Hawaii and asks the local people how she treats them?
    Hmmmm

  6. There is no way in hell that oprah weighs in at 170 lbs or wears a size 14 unless she’s wearing a tent like dress. She constantly lies. Get with the program, Oprah. Give up the food that makes you an addict. It’s about eating well to feel good and look good and not about eating crap (Sweet potato pie and fried chicken). You will never conquer your eating addiction till you give up the foods you are addicted to… I should know because I did it and lost the weight and kept it off (and I mean 150 lbs lost). She will never keep the weight off if she doesn’t give up the addicting triggers. I would be back up in weight if I didn’t keep that crap out of my house and out of my mouth!

  7. What’s your BMI, sorry not a ten, I was in the top 10 percent of the BMI, pregnant, and toned, keep working on it girl, remember to breathe. Maybe someday you will make it to where you what to be, good luck and god bless. It is nice to see what you do for others, keep it up.
