BOW TO MEActually, he's too stupid to be scared. Besides, he's probably already pitching a new show. If that doesn't work, he's going to apply for a job in maintenance or food service. Anything to stay in her exalted realm.
His pleas will fall on deaf ears. Oprah is like so over Dr. Phil. And Ellen can take that "Favorite TV star" crap and shove it up her ass. Oprah has her own cable network now. Oprah's company, Harpo Productions, has closed a deal to operate OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network in place of Discovery Health. While Oprah will rule over OWN with a steely fist and extra toes, the CEO slot is still open, but she'll probably hand that off to her close, close friend, Gayle.
Discovery must be having cash flow problems to hand off a thriving channel to a woman who repeatedly shows poor judgment of character in the people and products she endorses (and hires, if we want to drag the school into it). Discovery Health has an established presence and millions of subscribers because of its quality programming. Oprah prefers the work of plagiarists, especially those who buy her shoes.
