A Letter from Oprah: "Greetings from South Africa"
Dear Friends of Summer (Africa) Winter (USA),
Greetings from As Hot As You Can Stand It, South Africa. Whew, is it a scorching summer. I'm lunching today with the 12th graders from OWLAG, our last outing together before they graduate and go their separate ways to colleges all over South Africa and the U.S. A bittersweet day to bask in all the memories of the past five years. Then Friday night a big pajama party, and Saturday graduation. It's not a custom to have graduation ceremonies here, so this will be the first for a high school.
The girls are nervous and excited. I am one proud mama.
Thank you for your support of NEXT CHAPTER. You all helped us make headlines last week. I hope that you will continue to share your Sunday nights with me, beginning at 9/8c on OWN.
This week, Governor Chris Christie and I talk about what it's like to be fat in the glaring spotlight of other people's jokes.
He was honest. So was I.
Afterward, my favorite show on OWN -- Master Class. This week Goldie Hawn shares her joy. She's actually studied it, being joyful.
Blessings to you all. I'm just trying to stay cool. It's only 82 but feels like 102 in the sun.
