In her new book about hating absolutely everyone including herself, Joanie naturally puts Oprah Winfrey on the grill.
Writes the comic:
“And don’t say ‘Oprah, who?’
“Stedman’s beard, that’s who.
“Oh, please. Sure, she denies it, but even Abraham Lincoln didn’t have this big a beard.
“I know Oprah’s opened schools and raised money…blahblah….But so what? She can’t keep her weight at a reasonable level.
“One day she weighs 140, two days later she’s being fitted for a boat cover.
“Her weight goes up and down more than Monica Lewinsky‘s head.
“And honestly, I don’t know how she keeps gaining the weight; how fattening could Gayle King be?”
Oh, relax, Oprah. It’s all in fun.
