Could there be trouble in paradise for the biggest O’s in the country? If there’s any truth to a report by the New YorK Post, the answer is yes.
The rumor mill is alleging that Oprah has refused to be a part of the President Barack Obama‘s list of celebrity supporters to back his controversial “ObamaCare,” because she’s holding a grudge against him for not holding his end of the bargain by granting her exclusive access to the White House for her massive co-sign of his 2008 presidential race.
Presidential advisor, Valerie Jarrett, phoned Oprah to join stars like Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys to work with the White House in an effort to generate publicity for the health-care law. However, Oprah allegedly refused almost instantly. Why exactly? Well, rumor has is that the Big O wasn’t too pleased that she was not able to use her presidential connection to get exclusives and briefings for her OWN network. The post also points out that Oprah did not publicly support the president’s 2012 reelection campaign, but did phone First Lady Michelle Obama to send her congratulations. However, when Mrs. Obama invited Oprah to dinner to celebrate, it never took place.
Though this sounds like a juicy story, it is unlikely there’s any truth to it. But hey, you never know.
