Oprah doesn't pay for what she gives away and Olivia Newton John IS NOT Australian!!!!!

Here in Aus we got to see the last of the Australian Oprah shows.

Now there's two issues I had with it.

One, all the goodies Oprah gives away, and has given away, has not been paid for by her. The companies are asked if they'd like to donate their goods.

So for all the people who got pearl or pink diamond necklaces, THEY WERE NOT paid for by Oprah.

Neither was the million dollars worth of computers given to the boys school. Neither was the $250,000 given to the Aussie couple. Neither was Jay-Z's book. The publisher gave them away.

And let me tell you about those cars Oprah gave away about five years ago. Not only did she NOT pay for the cars, she also didn't pay for the taxes on them and most of the people had to give them back.

Bet you don't hear about that all that often.

Onto the second thing I have an issue with.

She had Olivia Newton John on and Oprah said, "so you're from Melbourne."

And of course Olivia agreed.

NAH UH!!!!

Olivia is a POM!!!!

That's right, the Newton John family came over from England - Olivia Newton-John was born in Cambridge, England on September 26th 1948; her family moved to Australia when she was 5. Her mother was German, daughter of the physicist Max Born, her father was Welsh, a professor of German at Cambridge and Melbourne. Despite the academic background, early on Olivia showed an interest in singing, forming a band called the Sol Four with some schoolfriends, and later on singing at her brother in law's coffee bar in Australia. She also starred in a movie "Funny Things Happen Down Under" which was forgettable apart from some early promise shown in Olivia's delightful rendition of "Christmas Down Under". A talent contest hosted by the Australian Johnny O'Keefe offered Olivia the prize of a trip to England, and she took this up in 1965.

That's right, she's NOT AUSTRALIAN!!!!!!

She spent 12 years here and then left. Barely ever coming back.

If I spent 12 years in any country and then left I wouldn't call myself one of them.

You just don't.

The Bee Gees spent about 8 years here before leaving again.

Mel Gibson is American. Russel Crowe is New Zealand, so many Aussies are not Aussies.

I just wish the ones who come here from other countries and only stay awhile would NOT claim to be an Aussie.

YOU'RE FUCKING NOT!!!!!!

Jewels xxoo

  2. Exactly. And AS IF we're gonna cry because some rich company with fellas at fucking Wall Street AKA "Bailout Nation for the rich pricks" had to "donate" stuff. Boo hoo. First : THEY SHOULD. Second : they can "afford" the "loss". And last but not least : gets their names and stuff around with big publicity in no sweat or efforts (Oprah, heelllooo)!

  3. Candice - I've known that for ages, but the way some people go on about what "Oprah gives away" just gives me the shits that people don't realise she don't pay for it.

    Cyn - apparently the two jewellery companies are now doing big business and the woman who made the coloured caftan she wore, had to make more after everyone saw it.

  4. FINALLY! THE TRUTH. IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE PEOPLE DONT KNOW THIS ALREADY. I AM AN AMERICAN. I WATCH PEOPLE WORSHIP OPRAH LIKE SHE IS JESUS. IT SCARES THE H OUT OF ME. I AM PRETTY SURE THAT MOST OF WHAT OPRAH WEARS OR USES IN HER OWN LIFE, SHE GETS FREE AS WELL. THIS MAKES HER MONEY COMPOUND AND GROW EVEN MORE. I WATCHED THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE SCREAMING AND CRYING FOR OPRAH. WHAT IS IN THE COOL-AIDE THE AUSSIES ARE DRINKING. I HOPE THE CLERGY IN AUSTRALIA GET THE MESSAGE OUT. OPRAH DOES NOT GIVE FROM HER POCKET WHEN SHE GIVES THINGS AWAY, YET, SHE IS GIVEN ALL OF THE PRAISE AND APPRECIATION. THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH. I DONT KNOW IF YOU ARE AWARE BUT SHE JUST MIGHT BE A FALSE PROPHET. THE AUSSIE PEOPLE WERE HAVING AN EMOTIONAL FRENZY OVER OPRAH. SHE WAS HOLDING HER ARMS OUT LIKE THE POPE BLESSING THE MULTITUDES. IT WAS WAY OVER BOARD. THIS KIND OF ADORATION IS VERY DANGEROUS. HER SPIRITUAL CONCEPTS ARE WAY OFF BUT WITH A LITTLE BIT OF TRUTH. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS.
