PERSONAL HISTORY OF LIFE Winfrey
was born January 29, 1954 in Kosciusko, Mississippi, the first of three illegitimate children of her mother, Vernita, which at that time was only eighteen years. Name, . which is intended to give her parents, . was quite ordinary - Orpan [Orpah], . a daughter named biblical heroine Ruth, . but the midwife inadvertently reversed the two letters on the birth certificate girl, . and now she's the winner of the original in the world named,
. During the birth of Oprah
, her father, Vernon Winfrey
, was in the army far from home at the naval base. Her mother moved to Milwaukee to get a job as a cleaner, leaving Opru on a farm under the supervision of the maternal grandmother who is raising her in the severity. Oprah
called his grandmother "mom" because an elderly woman was the only real mother, whom she knew. My grandmother was the first true Oprah
for a role model in life.
In early childhood, Oprah
a few years not heard anything about shoes. There had dress and she got it the first time to attend school. Isolated farm Opru forced to invent and build their own entertainment. She made friends with pets and found solace in books. No they have no television and, according to Winfrey
's grandmother has made her one of the most precious gifts that she ever received, to teach her to read and write at the age of two and a half years. This early development, the child gave his first speech even before turning to the parishioners of the village church on the theme "Jesus ascended on Easter Sunday". Parish seized awe, and many thought that it came down the spirit of God. This early success has not forgotten impressionable Oprah
. This unusual case filed her first dreams of becoming a missionary or a preacher. Later, fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Denvors, encouraged by her to the idea of becoming a teacher. Winfrey
told: "I grew up loving the book .... It was a means of escape in the life of another person ". When my grandmother gave Opru in kindergarten, it is carefully written statement of the teacher preparatory class with an unequivocal request to transfer her immediately to the first class. Surprised, the teacher turned her. After studying this year, Oprah
dashed once in third grade. It was an early indication of the tremendous potential of the poor lonely girl from the banks of the Mississippi. Oprah
says her strict grandmother as his first great role model: "I - well, what I am today - the result of work of my grandmother: my strength, my way of thinking, everything, absolutely everything that I already had in the age of six. Basically I was no different now from what I was when I was six years old. " Oprah
's mother sent for her to pick up in the ghetto Milwaukee, where she lived with a half-brother and sister Oprah
. The girl continued to speak publicly, to participate in poetry competitions in the black social clubs and church gatherings, where reputed as "our little speaker". She said in an interview with Lin Thornaby from "Woman's Day": "I do not know why, but somewhere deep down I always knew that someday be able to be exactly what I was". Winfrey
spent two years with his mother before received an invitation to the south to Nashville to live with his father recently had married. This ambitious young woman still continued to sink into the dream of a wonderful country, gleaned from books. She told "Good Housekeeping" in 1991: "Books showed me that in life there are different possibilities that the world there are people like me who live in the world, and that I could not only seek, but to achieve this. Reading gave me hope. For me it was like an open door ". About her life in Milwaukee, she said: "I prefer to hide in the toilet and read with a flashlight. What can you do, others laughed at me, thinking that I'm trying to become "somebody". I was already ". At the age of twelve, she paid $ 500 for performance in church. That same night, she told her father that she would pay for their accommodation, receiving a fee for something that will lead the conversation, and added: "I then said to my daddy that expect to be very well known. Oprah
began keeping a diary to record their dreams.
had the legal right to its custody, so when I finally got married, her father forced her daughter to leave and move to live in Milwaukee with her new family. Ghetto Milwaukee was soaked tragedies. Opru in the age of nine was raped by her cousin, nineteen. He bought her ice cream as a bribe for her silence. Then two other relatives tortured her sexual harassment. Winfrey
was a failure in one of his early shows, when it is recalled early sexual crime in a conversation with one of her guests, who had a similar experience in my life. Men in the life of Oprah
, where she sort of could rely, were precisely those who tried to use it, taught her to guilt and confusion. Moreover, it was a "vagrant" a child without roots, which could give it stability. Oprah
spent six years in Mississippi with my grandmother, two years in Milwaukee with her mother, two years in Nashville, with his father and again a year in Milwaukee with her mother. Now she was to spend the next five years in Nashville, where she was persistent and disciplined father would take her upbringing, in which it is needed.
At age thirteen in Milwaukee Oprah
became criminal. Lack of parental supervision and leadership has borne fruit. She rebelled, stole money from her mother and ran away from home. She stumbled upon exiting the limo Aretha Franklin and persuaded the singer that she was thrown, and now she must be "only a hundred dollars to get back home in Ohio" (Waldron, 1987). Her speaking skills, which were designed to make millions, and brought her the money which spread over three days in a hotel Milwaukee. When the money ran out, she went to her priest. He took Opru home to an irate mother who sent her to the center for the maintenance of adolescents. It happened to Oprah
all extremely well: there were no seats available and she was sent to live again to her father and stepmother, Zelma, in Nashville. Oprah
settled in Nashville in the age of fourteen. At this time she was already pregnant. Child was born prematurely and died shortly after birth. Winfrey
said Randy Banner of "New-York Daily News" (September 7, 1986): "My father literally saved my life". Vernon Winfrey
worked at a time barber and was a representative member of the community and the municipality of Nashville. Winfrey
told "Good Housekeeping": "My father just turned my life, claiming that I am more than she really was, and piously believing that I could be even more. His love of learning has shown me the right way ". Vernon insisted on Oprah
every day adds five new words to its dictionary or she will remain without lunch. Always talented, Oprah
has become a real student. In fifteen years it took away the contest in California to speak with church groups, and after watching the parade of Hollywood stars, she said: "Someday, someday I'll put my own star among these stars" (Waldron, 1987). Since that trip, Oprah
presides over the council of high school, participates in drama club and clearly manifests itself as in oratory, and in debates. At sixteen, she won the competition for public speaking club "Elks Club", which ensured her the right to study at the University of Tennessee. She was invited to the White House by President Nixon as a youth representative in Nashville and represented the eastern hills as "Outstanding American teenager". Winfrey
later say of this as a result of the influence of her father, which remake it: "It's all because of him. Because of him and what I am where I am today. "
At that time, Winfrey
began to break into show business career. She was crowned as Miss Fire Prevention "radio WVOL at the age of seventeen. She was the first blacks, winning this competition. Disc jockey station, John Heidelberg, said her abilities and hired for the duration of her education in high school read at the weekend send the latest news. She coped well with the work and received a hundred dollars a week, . Finally speaking skills Winfrey
became payable, . At the age of seventeen "our little he was sent to Stanford University for winning a dramatic interpretation of" Jubilee. ",
was named "Miss Black Nashville" and "Miss Tennessee" as a freshman in Tennessee, where she majored in oratory and drama
. In 1971, she participated in the Miss Black America "came out in the carnival procession. Then came her first big break when a local television station C-CBS offered her a job. It has twice turned down the proposal, while her teacher of oratory failed to remind her that after such a proposal work on television Cu CBS, many were forced to go to college. She came to work at the time of the second year and became the first black woman - assistant to the main evening news in Nashville. She was at that time was only nineteen. In his inimitable style, she said, "Cosmopolitan" in 1986: "Of course, I was a symbol. But, my dear, I was a symbol of happiness! "
In the early days of his work in television news Winfrey
were scared to death. She repeated herself: "I'll just pretend that I - Barbara Walters," and it worked. Walters began her professional leadership. Winfrey
's father, however, was still mostly in her life and demanded strict discipline. Winfrey
recalled later: "I was only commenting news announcer in the country, which should have been shut down until midnight". However, she received 15,000 dollars a year, remaining still a student at college. Winfrey
has become an effective reporter and was just as sincere then, as now. When she was assigned to the plot in the segregation of the city, she was acquainted with the owner of the shop only to hear at the meeting: "We do not shake hands with niggers, get out of here?". Answer sounded Winfrey
: "I bet niggaz will be happy". Before graduating from college in 1976, Winfrey
offered a very good chance to be a reporter in Baltimore and the second speaker, six-hour news on WJZ-TV. Winfrey
took the proposal and was on its way to the big times.
PROFESSIONAL CAREER Oprah
started her new job in a branch of the ABC-C in Baltimore in April, the Fools' Day in 1976. At twenty-two years she became the first female commentator on television station in Baltimore. The authorities of the station had their own ideas on the appropriate image for Winfrey
. They tried a new hairstyle and clothes, explaining: "Your hair is too coarse, your nose is too wide and your chin is too too large". When her hair fell out almost everything - a strong reaction to the chemicals in the dye - Winfrey
was killed. Never look up words in his bosom, Winfrey
said: "It is difficult to know yourself, when you - bald". For consolation she began to eat a lot and spent a lot of time alone. In general, all her experiences were a way to open itself. Winfrey
finally realized that there could be the next Diana Ross (Ross was the subject of adoration in show business for several years): "My hips will never be like the thighs Diana Ross, and I'd rather be just Oprah
. Power of Oprah
has always been its unique capacity for empathy, the ability to feel his companion, to merge with it together
. Reporting on any of the tragic, emotional bombshell, it often was difficult to restrain tears. Guide television station demanded that it became harder. Its strength was its weakness - it happens with everyone, although many did not even guess. Hypersensitivity - weakness Winfrey
, and her fragility prevented her efforts to become a hard news reporter. Much luck to viewers across America, that she never was able to change your style.
Manual stations have complained about the performance of its duties. Winfrey
interpose with their subjects in one-hour evening news, as her idol Barbara Walters. It seems that this was the darkest period in the life Winfrey
. Work was not. Oprah
is absolutely not suitable for conducting News Service. Nine months later, Winfrey
was fired from this work. Then she was appointed to lead the morning news broadcast and "saver" for the program "Good Morning America," ABC, BBC. Her immediate confidence in his chosen hampered filing messages. The station decided to try her as an assistant to Richard Sher in the program "Says Baltimore" - the morning talk show, made the recipes fashion show Regis and Kathie Lee. At the end of his first working day of Winfrey
said: "I came out of the ether, and I knew that this was what I dreamed that supposed to do. It feels like the start to breathe. It was a completely natural state for me ". During the next seven years, Winfrey
and Cher affect a variety of topics ranging from divorce to child education, from Siamese twins to the activities of the Ku Klux Klan. Show was a huge success. Unfortunately, Winfrey
's personal life does not get down. This was a complete rout. Winfrey
even went so far that has attempted suicide. However, twelve cities praised the show "Says Baltimore, raised his rating higher than the rating of" Phil Donahue Show ". This prompted the Chicago branch of the Broadcasting Corporation ABC, BBC, WLS-TV, pay attention to them.
. Dennis Swanson of WLS and invited Opru and its producer fully to "antemeridian Chicago news," which took in the recent final position by rating
. "In the very first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983, I went around the whole city on foot, stroll along the streets - God, as if the roots saw home felt. I knew: this is all mine, and I belong to this city ". Honest to rudeness, Winfrey
asked Swanson, will not be a problem for "antemeridian Chicago news that lead them to a black commentator. Dennis said: "I would not worry even if you turned green. All that I want - is to win. I am interested in business only a win, and I want to see you, too, is interested only in ". Winfrey
signed a four-year contract at the 200000 dollars a year. For her, finally began the long times, although she was not yet thirty.
A month after the debut of Winfrey
in Chicago antemeridian news "with new leadership program has already been awarded the highest ranking for the year. By coincidence. Phil Donahue has at this time to get their shows from Chicago to New York, and various experts have managed to accuse Winfrey
. It was more realistic: "The Virgin Mary, not me, moved him there". Donahue was known as Mr. Mummy day television, Winfrey
, and immediately replaced him as Mrs. Therapist. Its rating on Chicago television takes off like a rocket launch. "Variety" wrote about in that time: "antemeridian Chicago news" with new leadership, . Oprah Winfrey
, . raising its rating and shares more than 50 per cent compared with these figures a year ago and continuing to develop, . cool outperform known only in New York, "Donahue Show.",
. In 1987 the magazine "People", wrote: "The Oprah
intelligence faster than any other on television, yes, including Carson and Letterman"
quickly became the best friend of all American housewives. Her show - solid puzzle success. Today, let's say, in her guest Danny and Marie Osmond, and tomorrow, please, gay. She explained their ability to listen carefully to the point of view, exactly the opposite of its own, as follows: "I'm not trying to change people's. I'm trying to show them that they represent ". She wanted to be a teacher when I was in fourth grade, and now found solace in the fact that she taught every day, the audience attentive and interested listeners across the country. "I considered her work in television as an opportunity to be a teacher and facilitate the life of my audience". Winfrey
's ability to deal with drug addicts and individuals with an alternative way of life forced her to understand: "We are all responsible for ourselves, for our victory and our defeat". Winfrey
has become every woman. She loved every minute of their broadcasts, and for this audience loved her. Winfrey
has continued to gain weight, which reached 190 pounds (about 76 kg). This has been the subject of a huge number of programs, and its ever-changing diets have become very topical theme. The absence from her permanent lover was also a "byword". She never lost her sense of humor when talking about his weight, or the lack of a permanent connection, . but one day she could not keep, . saying on the air: "Mr. lawful husband is on the way, . but he is, . may, . and from Africa have not chosen, . pogulivaet ",
without much embarrassment endured her private life to public review as part of the program. Her philosophy in both cases was simple: "We are moving to the essence of life, moving to the absolute liking". Most of the leading talk-show stiff and decent, behave with an unnatural formalism. Winfrey
describes them as "lead themselves". It does not, but it is real, natural. The magic power of Winfrey
- in its brutal honesty and a shattering sincerity. She did not recognize any reflection on the issue before its presentation. This approach is not always safe, but gives us confidence that it will be interesting.
. Two professional instructor for Winfrey
- Maya Andzhelou, author of "I know why the bird cage sings," and Barbara Walters, peerless television reporter
recalls Walters: "I think that without it none of us would not be here. It - the pioneer, and it paved the way for all of us ". Winfrey
interviewed the leader of both his and felt uncomfortable, hearing the same statement from each of them: "Actually I am not good with people. I - in love with them ". "Newsweek" once made a few critical review of its activities aimed at national coverage than the increased growth of her career. In the article it is presented as "nearly two hundred pounds of black womanhood fed with Mississippi - shameless, landing in a street resourceful and soulful". Winfrey
did not like this dual description, but she acknowledged that it has opened many doors for her.
In 1985, Quincy Jones found Winfrey
, watching TV in his room in a hotel Chicago. He was shooting a screen version of "crimson banner of Alice Walker and was searching for someone on the role of Sophia. Winfrey
had no acting experience, except in the drama circle of college, but he chose her for the work. Film was released in December 1985 to the frenzied delight of the audience. Winfrey
welcomed the work of film critic Gene Siskel, who described her performance as "shockingly well made". Then he said: "It emphasizes primarily unwavering honesty in the role of a desperate black woman". Winfrey
's attorney was negotiating with movie studios Warner, . to get for her participation as much money, . but always sincere Winfrey
said: "Jeff, . I would have done it just so - please, . please, . not ask them more about the money! "He said:" However,, . you did not do this for free. "(" Working Woman ", . 1992),
. For his work in the movie and Winfrey
received an Oscar and a Golden Globe in the category for Best Actress
. National Association of Women in June 1986, she was also awarded the title and the prize "Achieving Women" for her sensuous performance of the role. Winfrey
's success led her to participate in filming the movie "Son of the Indian" by Richard Wright in 1986. Shot her in the role of the mother of the hero, but the picture has not received. Winfrey
acknowledged that it was difficult to identify with the mother, because her thirty-two years she has been too little experience of such emotions. Success in the film helped "Oprah Winfrey
". Her popularity soared to the skies immediately after receiving her Oscar for Actress in a scarlet banner ". September 8, 1986 King World includes the "Oprah Winfrey
" in his syndicate operating in 138 cities. It promised during the season 1987-88. bring $ 125 million profit. Such an instant turn of events has made Winfrey
the highest paid performer in show business. She signed a new five-year contract with King World to the end of December 1986. By 1993, the show has expanded its influence in America for an unprecedented number - 198 markets (99 percent of the country) and 64 foreign markets including Japan, Norway, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand and the Netherlands.

) and bought a modern 100,000 square feet (9000 m) production studio in Chicago, . making $ 20 million investment,
. It was only the third woman in history, next to Mary Pickford and Lucille Ball, who owned and continuously waged his own show. Winfrey
was the first African-American, who had his own production company in the field of entertainment. It makes all of its shows in the studio, adding them to various television programs such as "Women of Brewster-Platz. Manufacturing company has an impressive list of special documentary film scheduled for shooting in the coming years. I Winfrey
subordinate to eighty-six employees, she says: "I manage by instinct, I - an instinctive player, an instinctive actress, and use your instinct to choose the correct direction in business". Winfrey
signs each check herself and manages the company, limiting its staff to the limit.
By 1993, profits at the expense of "Oprah Winfrey
" rose to $ 100 million, of which Oprah
had 52 million dollars. Winfrey
has done all his actions in the entertainment business and a profitable year 1992-93 filed by "Forbes" (September 1993), received a total of 98 million dollars in profit. (She is ahead of Steven Spielberg at 26 million dollars.) Winfrey
starts at 6.00 am from Monday to Wednesday, doing in the gym before the start of taping at 9.00 am. She spends hours at the business meeting before the second recording on tape in 11.00. The rest of the day set aside to meet and discuss new projects. During the weekends, she relaxes on his own in the 160-acre farm in Indiana, where looking at new scripts and rests with Steadman Graham, her friend on the Rights of the groom. She made a television movie in the "Narro", which was shown in November 1993 under the title "There are no children", with Oprah
in the title role, based on the history of single mothers living in the city. For the media, she characterized herself in this role as follows: "I am - a perfect example of the poor fellows who came from shit. Yes, yes, I mean the most are crap, Mrs. Homeless from there ". Yes, that's why it competently entered in this book. She started from scratch and made something remarkable. Winfrey
as an entrepreneur opened a restaurant in Chicago with an unusual name "Eccentric" in 1991. She is constantly engaged in providing charity for child victims and creates a new documentary for "Harpo", and then can show on television. Continuous operation Winfrey
filled her daily show, which now has the highest rating in the history of television talk shows, according to Nielsen's estimates. When well-informed television producers discuss ratings, they often recall the "Oprah
effect". Leading Sea CBS News' Dan Rather testified enormous influence Winfrey
on his nightly news program: "Oprah
factor is huge ... We have to admit at least a position of any commentator in a similar situation: let me Opru as a leading ... and I'll be able to win for you all "(" New-York Times ", June 1, 1992). Winfrey
's success provided her an opportunity to buy various trinkets. She became a millionaire at the age of thirty-two years and bought myself a birthday present for an apartment for 800,000 dollars. She became the highest paid leader in the entertainment business in 1987 and bought a farm of one hundred and sixty acres in Indiana. In 1988, Winfrey
founded her own production company and opened her own restaurant in Chicago. Somewhat later, she for no apparent reason bought a ranch in the eighty-five acres near the slopes of Telluride, Colorado, including a nearby guest house, for a total cost of 4,3 million dollars. Among other extravagant purchases listed as a jet plane "Challenger 601-FOR, with a budget of operating costs for 1.4 million dollars, four cottages and the mansion under construction near Santa Fe, New Mexico. As the owner of "Harpo" she recognizes and admits to the cases of only one adviser, her lawyer and lifelong partner Jeffrey Jacobs. Jacobs says: "Oprah
has her own show and manages its own money. There is no board of directors, no committees. Any major decision in the end it only takes ". Jacobs said that she still signs every check itself and perform all the routine duties of any other employee of a large corporation.
. Between family and career
constantly deferred his marriage, apparently trying to make sure that it does not make mistakes
. She went through a series of poor communication on the way to the top, now impedes its faith in the implementation of good relations. It seems that Winfrey
's too much worried about the possible failure. Her fear of failure - a more important reason, because of which she did not marry until 40 years than lack of love for her fiance Graham Steadman, they are good friends with him for the past six years and engaged since November 6, 1992. Winfrey
said in an interview with "TV-Guide" in 1990: "You know, Dzhozeff Campbell said that marriage is really - is to sacrifice himself for the relationship with someone. When I'm ready to put themselves in that position, then I'll do it ". Long-term portion of obligations in marriage was the sole cause of her failure: she had seen too many marriages were destroyed, risking another, its own. At the beginning of their relationship Winfrey
said she would not marry Stedman because she "can not imagine how he - or anyone else - would be between her and career". She said: "I would never have a child out of wedlock .... I remember too well what it is - to be the illegitimate child ". Winfrey
's more concerned about the transition to a permanent relationship that may interfere with her work than their impact on her career. Winfrey
is considering its unique relationship with Steadman in the context of a joke: "A lot of people want to go with you in the limo. Do you prefer someone who helps you get into the bus. Steadman - Assistant Winfrey
when boarding the bus.
In Baltimore, Winfrey
told the press: "People often think that if I appear on television, it means, and lead a grand social life. Let me tell you that I can count on my fingers how many times I went to Baltimore for the past four years, including those for which I myself had to pay ". She told reporters that in Baltimore, she began to take on additional assignments, so that if she did not have too often faced with the negative phenomena of social life. Later, she says, she continued to carouse furiously to satisfy their sexual energy. Relations, as such, hardly existed in this period of her life. Winfrey
possession depression, and she spent much time in bed. Her depression reached the zenith of September 8, 1981, and she attempted suicide when her then-beau, William Bubba Taylor, refused to marry her.
now admits his secret guilt for abuse of her childhood
. She always blamed herself for the heinous actions of others that made her unable to establish relationships that could develop into something permanent. Stedman Graham, was another. "It - the first man of the people I only knew that not only wants me to be the best, what can only be, but that I had everything it can only be". But Winfrey
immediately adds: "I swear to you, that scrap of paper, which legitimizes the fact that Steadman and I have together, not be able to do this even better than it already has. So, until we decide to have children, I do not worry, even if we never get married ". As usual, . Winfrey
opens her soul, . When asked about her children in her future: "Do I want to have sobstvennogoN Sometimes I think, . yes, . I want to purchase this experience, . but sometimes, . later, . I have to admit, . not too miss the possible birth of a child,
. Probably, I'm afraid. Raise a child - this is serious business. You must be emotionally mature and become responsible, but I'm not sure that this description corresponds exactly to my condition, and then I say no, at least not yet - there is no "(" Good Housekeeping ", 1991).
received many kicks from the media because of the fact that it had destroyed an autobiography, which is expected to see in September 1993
. Perhaps her fiance, Stedman Graham, convinced her that such full disclosure and compromising the most intimate secrets will not be the best decoration of their marriage.
. It has already signed an agreement to publish a book published by Miami, appointing a release date for September
. Graham's position was unambiguous: "You should not do this, you are digging into all accidents since its last, . I want, . us to focus on the future! I do not want and will not support this nonsense and watch, . how did you reveal my soul to every curious in America, . while we are trying to start a new life together "(Bly, . 1993),
. He was probably right, but the style of Winfrey
and her success has always been based on the demonstration of all. Her success in every enterprise and every endeavor, and personal and professional, always based on complete honesty and integrity. She always relied primarily on instinct and favored a "gut feeling" what and where is the truth.
to know the fullness of each of its visitors. They stretched long, up until then, until she dropped her diet, because in the end concluded that the weight depends on many factors, but not on the quality and type of food. At the moment of sincerity, she says Alan Ebert of the "Good Housekeeping" in 1991: "Now I understand that my appetite and weight gain - are symptoms of deeper emotional problems, which no diet is not correct. Under my overweight lie buried feelings and my feeling of fear of the feelings, whatever they were ... I know if I had only managed to get past fears and feelings, then whatever the pain, I would be finally free of this, and freed from the weight, because then I'll be free from having to defend themselves ". According to biographer Bligh (1993), Winfrey
recently spent 142,000 dollars to get rid of sixty-five pounds.
. In August 1993, Winfrey
ran a half marathon (thirteen miles) to San Diego for two hours and sixteen minutes - exactly one hour behind the winner
. This achievement took five months of intensive training, in which she lost fifty pounds. At the finish line Winfrey
commented: "People told me that the race - this is fun. When I first started training, then asked: "If it's fun, then someone here razvlekayutN" But today there were lots of fun.
