“Honestly, there is no way I could’ve had the success at Oprah’s network if she hadn’t stopped her talk show. A s a businesswoman and CEO it was a good move for her and me as well, but ave the network, I don’t know about that. It should speak to so many people, especially people of color, in order for you to have power, sometimes it’s better to come together.”
