As USA TODAY, The Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, puts it, "Love her or loathe her, [Oprah] Winfrey has become proof that you can't be too rich, too thin or too committed to rising to your place in the world." Born poor in Mississippi, Oprah Winfrey developed a fresh, personal approach to celebrity talk shows that has made her a household name. Whether she's touting a favorite book or supporting causes of national or international interest, Oprah reaches nearly 50 million U.S. viewers weekly and millions more in countries around the world. Along the way, she's also become the first female African American billionaire, with her own successful magazine and production company. Her rags-to-riches story and zest for living continue to inspire her millions of loyal fans.
