Does it matter what she -- or any other celebrity -- did in their past? Is it important to know this sort of thing about prominent people, or just voyeurism?

Rachel / January 16, 2009 11:35 AM

I don't want to believe that it's true. However, if it is, I'm glad she never got wrapped up into it. Clearly you can't be as successful as she is and have a crack problem.

Rachel,
Meet Whitney, my lovely wife.

I don't care if the Biggety "O" got off on the Rock. She needs to get up on my pipe!

Can you spare a hit for a brother?

isn't this really old news? Didn't we already hear about this in the 90's? or even 80's??
she has made up for it...

Moss Derringer / January 16, 2009 12:53 PM

Does Steadman know about this?

I can see Gayle doing it but Oprah? NO WAY!

Spook / January 16, 2009 1:17 PM

Fo sho,Yo!

How do you think that Bus-down lost so much weight!?!

Oprah's black limo was more notorious than Biggie, cruising up and down Madison, where Vice Lords be traveling and Chevy windows be rattling, and them corner boys be screaming
"Pandemic!" I got that Pandemic!

She use to always be round the way on Fridays cause
them ready rocks
be two for one!

Sh******t, better act like you know!

Dang, that's messed up.

Doug / January 16, 2009 2:04 PM

Wasn't there a character in "The Wire" based off of Oprah?
It was "bubbles", right?

Barack / January 16, 2009 2:11 PM

Well, she did make me up to be the second coming...

...but I stick to the coke.

Harry Potter / January 16, 2009 3:03 PM

That's why my interests are fictional characters.

Paul / January 16, 2009 4:37 PM

Maybe all those shows she did on "The Secret" were really shows about her secret addiction.

Steven / January 16, 2009 5:54 PM

No way, she's too fat for crack. Opie's definitely a weed girl. Weed and chips. Whitney, now there's a crack girl. No way she'll end up as big as Aretha or Auntie Dionne. That's the truth. But SERIOUSLY, I'm pressed for time. I don't really care about celebs. Except for the Piv. Definitiely got time for the Piv and a roll of duct tape.

Gaigen / January 17, 2009 2:14 PM

Isn't this an old joke about Oprah from her REALLY overweight days? You know, "Did you hear Oprah got arrested for carrying drugs?... they lifted her dress and found 300 pounds of crack." Not saying it's funny or anything, just sayin'...
