One of Oprah’s ex-lovers (I know, I was equally surprised they existed), is shopping around a tell-all book intitled ‘The Wizard of O: My Life With Oprah, her ex-lover,’ about the chat queen that features a startling revelation: Oprah Winfrey hit the crack pipe as recently as 1984. Landis Randolph Cook has written a book outlining his days as the boyfriend of Oprah. In the book he details how Oprah showed him how to freebase cocaine, and wild nights of sex. Cook also claims that Oprah “was still under the influence while doing her show.” Cook who has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer supposedly only has two years to live. He blames Oprah for his problems and says he wants his story told. Rudolph’s web site is here. The National Enquirer also details the story:
Oprah confessed to her audience she briefly used cocaine in the 1970s. At the time she blamed it on her desperate obsession with a man who was a drug user.
But in his blockbuster sex-and-drug tell-all The Wizard of O: My Life With Oprah, her ex-lover, Chicago businessman Randolph Cook, makes the stunning disclosure that the talk queen resumed her cocaine habit during their secret affair which began in 1984. Cook, 51, also claims the media mogul taught him how to smoke crack cocaine, and the two “freebased” the drug regularly during their passionate six-month romance and the talk show titan “was still under the influence while doing her show.”
There are also legal documents that prove Cook’s claims:
The document, titled “Defendant Oprah Winfrey’s Answer to Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint At Law,” reveals:
“Defendant admits that she and Cook had sexual relations.”
“Defendant admits that Cook used cocaine in her presence and that she used cocaine while Cook was present.”
The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Cook talks about his time with Winfrey during their secret affair, which started in 1984. Oprah should know that blame is what losers do, and winners take responsibility for their own actions. Be a winner Oprah, don’t blame an ex boyfriend for your actions.
BTW, Thanks for Obama. Yeah, thanks a lot ya creakhead!
Oprah Gail Winfrey (born January 29, 1954 in Kosciusko, Mississippi, United States) is an American television presenter, media mogul and philanthropist. Her internationally-syndicated talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, has earned her multiple Emmy Awards and is the highest-rated talk show in the history of television. She is also an influential book critic, an Academy Award nominated actress, and a magazine publisher. She has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and was once the world’s only black billionaire. She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world.
Born in rural Mississippi to a poor teenage single mother and later raised in an inner city Milwaukee neighborhood, Winfrey was raped at age 9 and at 14-years-old gave birth to a son, who died in infancy. Sent to live with the man she calls her father, a barber in Tennessee, Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the age of 19. Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime talk show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place, she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.
Credited with creating a more intimate confessional form of media communication, she is thought to have popularized and revolutionized the tabloid talk show genre pioneered by Phil Donahue, which a Yale study claimed broke 20th century taboos and allowed LGBT people to enter the mainstream. By the mid 1990s she had reinvented her show with a focus on literature, self-improvement, and spirituality. Though criticized for unleashing confession culture and promoting controversial self-help fads, she is generally admired for overcoming adversity to become a benefactor to others. In 2006 she became an early supporter of Barack Obama and one analysis estimates she delivered over a million votes in the close 2008 Democratic primary race.
