Even if you see a photo of two people person smiling and things look like all is well between them, if you see someone’s fist or fists clenched, rest assured that there is trouble in that relationship. If you see a tight clenched jaw with teeth together you can also count on the fact that there is trouble brewing.
This photo was taken of Oprah and her stepmother, Barbara Winfrey the wife of her father Vernon Winfrey at Oprah’s 50th Birthday. Body language wise you can clearly see that Oprah is not keen on Barbara with her clench fists around her neck as though she subconsciously wants to strangle the woman. That fact that both of her hands are balled up into fists shows she really doesn’t like her stepmom at all.
After 14 years, Barbara and Vernon are divorcing and Oprah has told her to vacate the Nashville home she graciously bought for Vernon and Barbara to live. Oprah would have allowed Barbara to continue living there and not be homeless but Barbara refused to sign a confidentiality agreement which Oprah requested from her. So now Barabara is without her Nashville home and is so furious that she has done an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail “spilling the beans” on Oprah.
Now we can certainly see why Oprah’s body language was leaking out animosity towards Barbara years earlier. The fact that she is “leaking” anything is egregious Toxic behavior. Oprah doesn’t owe this woman, a virtual stranger, anything. Oprah was gracious to her father to put a roof his head. Since Barbara was attached to Vernon , Barbara was permitted to live there as well.But now that Vernon and Barbara have split, Oprah doesn’t need to continue to support this woman in any way.
The “beans” this woman has spilled about Oprah are “non- beans” . She says that Oprah and Steadman and Gayle are always together. So what is wrong with that? They are all three wonderful support systems for one another. Most people would be thrilled to have loyal loving people around them. Gayle and Steadman are her family and family sticks together.
She says she never say Oprah and Stedman kiss and be affectionate. Well why would they show their affection around her?Oprah and Steadman have been together since 1986. The fact that they are still together in one form or another is awesome in itself. So this woman’s gossip about her and Steadman is ridiculous.
She also calls the relationship between Oprah and Gayle “unnatural:. No matter what their relationship is the fact that they are both loyal and supportive to one another and have one another’s backs is very “natural”. In fact it is awesome to have someone in the world who loves and cares about you that much.
She talks about Oprah firing people. Of course Oprah is going to fire people who are no longer effective in her life or do what she needs them to do. Any business person would do that, So once again, Barbara is spilling a “non- bean”
She ridiculously gossips about Oprah using comfort food as her drug of choice which Oprah has mentioned for years. She also belittles Oprah for loving and always snacking on potatoes which is ridiculous. It was a toxic dig that Oprah’s weight is caused by her love of all things potato.
Then this Toxic woman tries to make it like Oprah is a racist and is all about skin color. She said that Vernon once told her that if Oprah could change the color of her skin she would have. She also said that she like Steadman because he is a “high yellow” – a light skinned black with soft hair. Well here is a newsflash for Barbara. If the richest most powerful woman in the world was that much against her skin color, she would have lightened it years ago. As we have all seen, Oprah is very much a supporter of Black people and has done many things to help her race and has even created a school for Black Girls in Africa.
Then she says that even though Oprah took her and her ex husband along on a Mediterranean cruise, she griped that Barbara didn’t speak to her. She also tried to cut Oprah down by saying how they had three different meals on the ship with different sets of dishes t each meal. So what is wrong with that? When someone pays millions of dollars to rent a cruise ship for an 11 day vacation they can afford to have different dishes at eAch me and even different bedding each day.
She also griped about being related to the second floor and not being allowed to mix with celebrities at Oprah’s Birthday party. Well it was Obvious that Oprah didn’t feel comfortable with her father or his ex wife. She obviously had little in common with the woman as well as with her own father. But it speaks volumes about Oprah that she was still gracious enough to invite her father and his wife on a luxury ship and to a milestone birthday party.
It is obvious from her paid interviews with the Daily News that have now gone worldwide presswise that she is a Toxic jealous and bitter woman. But her bitterness has backfired as what she has revealed about Oprah look pretty good. The woman should have taken the house in Nashville and signed the papers of confidentiality as she really has nothing relevant to say about Oprah anyway, as has been revealed. Oprah didn’t beat or physically hurt anyone, do drugs, or steal from anyone. She is just living her life as best as she can. She has loving people around her and instinctively knows who the Toxic People are in her life and wants nothing to do with them as was the case with Barbara who cries in her interviews that Oprah never took the time to get to know her.
Well, Oprah didn’t need the time. She saw right through her Toxic now ex stepmother and it all showed up in Oprah’s tight jawed smile and clenched fists.
