Filed under : Entertainment

UPDATE: “I did decide, though, to get myself a little birthday gift this year. Actually, I thought I’d get myself two,” she says. “I want you to meet my two new babies.”

Meet Oprah’s new pups…Sunny and Lauren

Today marks the media mogul’s 56th birthday! Happy birthday Oprah!

It is no secret within my circle of friends & family, that I greatly admire Oprah Winfrey. I have long considered her a “mentor in my heart & head“…

Oprah Gail Winfrey was born on January 29th, 1954 in Kosciusko, Mississippi to unmarried teenage parents. She was later on raised by her mother in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood.

Oprah’s grandmother, Hattie Mae Lee raised her until she was six years old. They lived in deep poverty that often times Oprah wore dresses made of potato sacks, for which the local children made fun of her and…… the rest is history! Because y’all know who ended up laughing all the way to the bank, bought it & came back with it to share with others less fortunate!

Oprah is celebrating with a Friday live Oprah show with a live studio audience filled with over 100 other peeps that share the January 29th birth date.  The media mogul is still the hottest chic in the game, even with the imminent end of her reign as the queen of daytime talkshow TVin 2011.

In the spirit of celebrating, please share your favorite Oprah TV moments, story or drop a note to wish her “happy birthday”….

Heart ya for it!

    I think the Big Give was my favourite reality showcase from Oprah….She is a successful woman no doubt but what inspires me most is she makes a significance in people’s lives. I pray each and everybody makes time to make a significance in someone’s life. IT doesn’t have to be money to make a difference!
