Fwd: Oprah gives her email out to everyone in the free world!

Oprah, if you don’t forward this blog post to 10 people in the next 10 minutes, you’re going to have bad luck for the next 10 years!

Sorry, Lady O, but you’d better be prepared for a whole lot of that as you’ve just given out your email to everyone in the free world. Winfrey, who put the kibosh on The Oprah Show for good after 25 seasons yesterday, hopped on her Facebook to announce she’d be keeping in touch all summer with her fans… and anyone with access to the Internet, for that matter.

Winfrey posted, “Oprah@oprah.com. This is going to be my personal e-mail account for all of you. When you get something in your in box from me it will be from me directly. And I’ll be reading as many of your e-mails as I can as I move to my next life on OWN. I want you to know that what you have to say matters to me.”

Look, we know she has a little bit more free time with her show being finished, but this is no small undertaking. (Clearly she didn’t see Bruce Almighty.) And while it seems O has already been responding to some folks — a few people on Facebook bragged they’ve heard back from her — but we’ve got to wonder how long that will last. In order to make this a little easier for her, we wanted to make a few suggestions to folks as to what not to send to oprah@oprah.com:

1) Aforementioned chain letters. Nobody, not even Oprah, likes those.

2) Requests for a new car/a trip to Australia/healing of the lepers.

3) Hate mail. It’s not that we don’t think she hasn’t heard it all before, but Internet karma could totally bite you in the ass. Think of what an Oprah virus would do to your laptop.

4) Groupons. We have a sneaking suspicion she can afford it at full price.

5) Evites. Oprah probably can’t make it to your Memorial Day BBQ.

Will you be sending Oprah an email, PopWatchers? Let us know in the comments section below!

    She didn’t say she’d answer every email. It’s probably going to be like Eva Peron, where she’d pull a name out of a hat and she’d make one dream come true at a time, if at all. Most likely, there’ll be someone helping answer email. I used to do that for a celebrity.

      i am thinking that you will never really read this but i have to try. i would like to tell you of so many thing that you have said that helped but that would take forever. so if you do get this and could send the email address i used to give me a valid address i could go into much more detail about what i need desperately to talk to you about. as very broke as i am. i am not wanting ANY money from you. the ideas i have and what i have seen you do well granted from t.v.. i just must tell you what i have been thinking and yes it will take money but not for me or my family as i have a large family and we have been talking about doing this project that will save so many families and rehabilitate them. it will absolutely work. please call me or give me a more direct email. 9280649-5876 or 520-686-1674..Regina Rogers

  • rose sejour

    thank you for everything I don’t think you know what you did for so many and I am not talking about the gifts but the knowledge the love thanks

    • you have her email address!

      Am I the only one that’s a little baffled as to why so many here are posting personal messages to Oprah when they could just use the email address she sent out instead?

        This is very depressing. I thought Oprah’s viewers and fans were more intelligent than this… something must be going on where another site is directing them here by mistake, maybe? And then they’re not reading the article. It’s the only explanation possible. Also, they deleted a response I made to someone on the last page where I advised “Angela” to seek legal advice for her problem. Very strange.

    I have watched Oprah just about every day for years and I tell ya what, she is going to be missed sooooooo much in my house.. She has spoken from the heart about so many subjects.. I have learned so much from her..Her money and fame never took her away from her roots, down to earth and never any different from the rest of us.. I am going to miss her so much, can’t even imagine what i will watch that will even come close to her show… I always said I wanted to get to one of her shows but never made it.. Sure wish I had tried harder in my busy life… You rock OPRAH and I wish u all the best in your new adventure….
    From a little hick town in New Hampshire I will miss u…

    I will truly miss you, When I was working, I had to wait until 1 or 1:30 AM, to see your show. And yes, morning came real quick. But, I did not mind. You have truly grown in Grace.You have to have the love of God, to care about others as you do. I pray that you will conrinue to grow in Grace, and don’t worry what other think,,I know you don’t, just wanted to put that in here. all I can say…”To God be the Glory”.

    Hi Oprah My name is Tamairra and my family and I are homeless.We have been staying in a hotel in orlando fl for 9 years now.And I share one bed with my mother.While my dad sleeps on the couch.Whenever he can make it home.You see he is a cab driver and does not get to come home a lot.I am eleven years old and I have been staying in this hotel called Universal Suites.Me and my family have been living here since I was the age of three.My dad drives me to school every morning and I catch the bus in the afternoon.At this point our air conditioner is not working right ,so it is very hot and sweaty in our hotel room.leaving us hot and stressed out every day.I have never had a room to myself.But that is not possible right now.We wish to move someday.The problem is we have no money and are in debt with the rent,getting deeper in the hole every day.My mom said since nine eleven there has not been as many tourist’s as there use to be in Florida.So the cab buissness is slow.Just to let you know I love the way that you help and support people with all of there problems.It is horrable to here that the show is almost over and done with.By the time you read this your show will most likely already be over.That is if you ever do get to read this letter I am sending you.Any way I wish that one day I would of been able to be on your show.My family and I are in the need of help.That is the reason that I am sending you this letter.I just had the idea that you will maby write meback or some how ,some way help me and my family.Just incase you do get a chance my email is evebunge@ gmail.com.My phone number is 407-515-0072.aND MY ADDRESS IS 4855 SOUTH O.B.T IN ORLANDO FL.God bless you and thank you for your time.sincerely Tamairra.

    Dear Oprah
    Thank you for your sincere expression of faith……how do those without, face the day… and the challenges with which we are confronted. Please consider a series of DVDs specifically packaged to address certain topics/issues for those of us who have worked most of your 25 years of influence and were unable to watch!
    I applaud your finale of “To God Be The Glory” as a testament to your faith and dedication to help wherever the need exists. Much love, Barbara

  • Gina Patrick

    Oprah you brought so much value to so many people’s lives;including mine. You are the true meaning of a mentor and paying it forward. I live my life to try to enhance others and be the best that I can possibly be. Thank you for all you gave to everyone in the afternoons! We will miss you and you are very loved.
