It’s “Let’s Sue Oprah” Day!

March 20, 2008 / Posted by:

Oprah now has two beautiful new lawsuits on her desk for two different things.

The first! Oprah is being sued by a woman who claimed the reality show “Oprah’s Big Give” was her idea. Darlene Tracy pitched the idea for a show called The Philanthropist” to Harpo Productions in 2005. Darlene’s show wanted to challenge contestants to help the needy. This is exactly the same premise as Oprah’s new reality baby. In 2006, Darlene tried to get the show from hitting the air, but a judge shot her down. Darlene has now hired a lawyer and filed an appeal. Harpo productions told the NYDN, We agree with the judge that [Tracy’s] claims against Harpo Productions, Inc. are without merit. We are confident that the Court of Appeals will agree that Tracy has no claim.”

Darlene has a better shot at giving birth to Angelina Jolie’s next adopted child then winning a lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey. That’s like if I sued Jesus! Darlene better lock her doors at night, sleep with one eye open and keep a Gayle King photo near her bed. You don’t eff around with Ope.

Now for the second lawsuit! Orit Greenberg is suing Harpo after she claims crazed Oprah audience members caused her to fall down the stairs. Orit said she went to a taping of the Oprah show in 2006. She was kept in a holding area with the other audience members. A staff member then instructed them to enter the studio and sit wherever they wanted. That’s when all hell broke loose and people started charging the studio like…well…like they were at an Oprah show. Orit was knocked over and fell down some stairs. She blames the Harpo staff for not controlling the crowd. She wants $50,000 in medical expenses and for other shit.

Orit won’t see a penny of Oprah’s money. Like I said before, she’s fucking Oprah! She doesn’t stand a chance!
