Many celebrities have achieved the fame that Oprah Winfrey has, and few have had as many fans as she has.
Earlier today, I sent Oprah Winfrey an email, since she gave our her Email address during her last show, and I got a reply back just now! It was a form letter I received back from her, but still OPRAH WINFREY SENT ME AN EMAIL! You have no idea how happy that makes this little fan. Oprah sure knows how to excite her fans, me included!
Oprah, despite her flaws, inspires us on a daily basis and I will continue to support, and criticize, one of the most brilliant women in the world...
Greetings, Ms. Winfrey!
for my entire short life (19 years, almost 20) I have dreamed of
talking with you, if only for a short few moments.
my entire life, you have been a constant source of inspiration for me.
Your whole life reads like an inspirational novel, forcing those of us
who read it to look at our lives and learn from every single thing, good
or bad, that happens in our either exciting or drab lives. You have
been through so much and the fact that you are, quoting Stephen Sondheim
"through good times and bum times", still here is a constant source of
inspiration for not only me, but millions of other friends,
nay...extended Oprah family
My life hasn't been perfect, but thanks to you, I have
learned to enjoy every minute of it, no matter what has happened that
might dissuade me from having a .
I have learned to walk through my days with a smile on my face and a
cheer in my step, despite every little negative thing that may happen.
I am a journalist, I have a little blog online, AND I'm in college,
training to be an Opera Singer/Actor. I just appeared in a production of
Woody Allen's Don't Drink the Water.
I just hoped you would be proud that I trudged through many a bad
audition and continued to audition despite my negative thoughts, thanks
to all the things I have learned from you over the years.
will end this letter with the pledge that I will never stop watching,
reading and taking in every thing that you do, because I
find that I really connect with the true Steven when I do. I will wait
every month for my O: The Oprah Magazine to come in the mail and I will
watch OWN with the fevered glee of a small child unwrapping a present at
I hope all is well in your world and that you are staying positive,
despite the major changes that are taking part in your life. You will
continue to do great things, Ms. Winfrey, and I will be there with you
every step of the way!
Got your email.
Thank you for watching the finale. I could feel your beating hearts, along with mine, through the TV screen.
I'm off to take a little rest, and then I'll get busy working on OWN.
Take care of yourself.
