Oprah Tweets About Eating Bread and Losing Weight, Gains $12.5 Million

Oprah Winfrey's loss is also her gain. On Tuesday, the 61-year-old icon tweeted out a video to her 30 million followers proclaiming that she has eaten bread "every single day" on her Weight Watchers diet and has still lost 26 pounds.
Following Oprah's carb confession, Weight Watchers stock went up 20 percent, closing at $13.29 a share. Seeing as she owns 10 percent of the company, Oprah earned $12.5 million dollars, or roughly $3 million an hour.
USA Today points out that if you factor in her 3.5 million Weight Watchers stock option, she made a staggering $19.2 million, or nearly $5 million an hour, after her single tweet.
Oprah joined forces with the diet brand in October and immediately caused their stock to sky rocket. Once news broke of Weight Watchers' partnership with the Queen of Talk, the company's stock went up 53 percent in pre-market trading to $10.36. According to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing obtained by USA Today, Oprah purchased her shares at $6.79 for a total investment of $43.2 million.
"Weight Watchers has given me the tools to begin to make the lasting shift that I and so many of us who are struggling with weight have longed for," she said in a statement at the time. "I believe in the program so much I decided to invest in the company and partner in its evolution."
While Oprah is all about Weight Watchers, other stars -- including Jessica Alba and Allison Williams -- are really into Kayla Itsines' 30-minute workout. ET sat down with the 24-year-old trainer to reveal her secret behind her fitness regimen.

  Thanx ET


  1. Oprah has lost a few pounds , it's good for her health .
    My take on Oprah is she will do anything to keep herself in the spotlight . Hope she sticks with it this time .
    Remember the size 8 jeans , I laughed so hard when Susan told me about how skinny she was , but still had a big head and ass , Mae said she looked deformed .
    Good post
    Love PIC

  2. Oprah owns most of the free world and has a lease on the rest. She don't care if she's deformed. She knows no sucker would dare point it out to her. hahaha! Apparently, every time she eats or shits she makes money. In fact, she probably shits money.
    Will she ever retire? You guys must get tired of seeing her big fsce all over the TV seven days a week.
    Thank you
    Luv PIC
