Oprah Winfrey fans will be happy to know that, after a two-year hiatus, the popular Favorite Things list — which caused her audience members to scream, cry, and/or faint upon its reveal — is making a comeback.
You can view the full rundown in the December issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, available on November 6.
On November 18, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) will run a two-hour special devoted to the product roundup. But Winfrey’s choices have already received some harsh criticism.
Vanity Fair magazine has taken issue with some of the items on the list, like including a $450 bladeless fan Winfrey discovered while interviewing the Kardashians, calling it “obscure and realistically unnecessary.” Also, as Gawker noted, many of the 48 items on the list contain are truffle-flavored foods. Where”s the variety? Commenter’s’ reactions were mixed, with one disappointed reader lamenting, “$88 for four bags of popcorn. Insane!” Another simply noted, “Oprah likes some expensive stuff.” Can’t argue with that.
Singing teen heartthrob Bieber will be the subject of a very special edition of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” which will air in more than 100 countries worldwide thanks to an agreement with Discovery Networks International.
The first-ever global episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” will first air November 25 at 9 p.m. on Winfrey’s OWN, before airing on Discovery Networks International’s female flagship stations TLC, Home & Health and Real Time, also beginning on November 25.
For the episode, Winfrey attended Bieber’s concert at All-State Arena in Rosemont, Ill., before breaking bread with him at the RL Restaurant in Chicago for an interview.
Winfrey grilled Bieber on such topics as “his growth as an artist, the pitfalls of fame and living in the spotlight,” OWN said in a release.
The pair then went holiday shopping together at the Ralph Lauren in Chicago.
