My wife’s tears were barely dry when I walked through the door after work today. Why was she crying? Oprah made her.
This was not the first time this has made my wife cry. Oh no, there was the episode about the woman who trained dogs with love, the teacher who underwent fertility treatments, the family who got a house… and sometimes even the opening credits.
This time Oprah had a partner in her conquest, Sarah Blakely, creator of Spanx . Blakely shocked O with a $1 million donation to Oprah’s Leadership Academy. Even Oprah cried, so my poor wife didn’t stand a chance.
I might be tempted to blame this on Oprah, but she’s got one of the few shows on TV which showcases GOOD things, not just miserable news stories about the bad people out there. However my wife cries at just about anything now that she’s in the throes of pregnancy, good or bad. Come on O, I had the same reaction as Brad Pitt and George Clooney in Oceans Thirteen did when I saw the house giveaway episode. The pregnant women don’t stand a chance.
