On Tuesday night, Oprah says "Thank you Calgary!" as she wraps up her sold-out show during her three-city Canadian tour. Oprah stepped out in her white cowboy hat, a symbol of hospitality that Calgary often shares with visiting dignitaries and celebrities.
Oprah sent this photo out today with a tweet:
Goodbye Calgary.. Thanks for your LOVE. Keep spreading' it!
She also visited Edmonton, Alberta Monday and is now heading to Vancouver!
Hello my friends...Greetings from Calgary. Cold up here. Wishing you warmth wherever you are.
News for all of you 'Fifty Shades of Grey' fans....Lisa Ling has the real deal on tonight's premiere episode of OUR AMERICA with Lisa Ling. What a shock to see what your neighbors are up to...handcuffs and all!
I love "going deep" to see how other people live and Lisa is phenomenal at immersing herself in the lives of the people she meets. She allows us to see people and their experiences in a whole new light -- and often makes us question what we always believed to be true in Our America. I always come away with more than a few Ahas! and even a couple of OMG's after watching this show. Take that to the 10x for tonight's show!
OUR AMERICA with Lisa Ling tonight at 10/9c. Can't wait to hear what y'all think. Post your comments or tweet tweet me.

I happen to love a good cup of tea and I’m a big fan of Crate & Barrel, which is why I’m crazy about these super-chic teapots designed by 12 contemporary artists to commemorate the store’s 50th anniversary. Each month beginning Dec. 1, Crate and Barrel will feature a new design on limited-edition teapots—I particularly love the whimsical red fish on the September pot by architect Paola Navone and the colorful cityscape on Brooklyn based-illustrator Julia Rothman’s pot for November. Only 200 of each teapot will be produced, making it a great gift for the tea lovers in your life (or yourself!).
Carmelized onions so pretty they make me sing! Getting ready for Turkey Day. Kitchen smells like HOME.
Sweet potatoes with freshly picked rosemary. It's beginning to look a lot like Thanksgivvving!
Making cranberry sauce. Boil the berries in orange juice. Add cinnamon, allspice, cloves and chill.
Dinner finally! Our house to yours...Happy Thanksgiving—Oprah.
Having worked in the fashion industry since 1967, veteran designer Norma Kamali is taking a stand against female objectification in a new awareness campaign. On www.stopobjectification.com, she’s encouraging women to upload photos of their most powerful body parts, along with a caption explaining their strengths—and a chance to share their own objectification experiences with others.
One woman submitted a photo of her biceps, along with the caption “I can do more pushups than my husband”; another showed a close up of her eyes, along with “I survived an abusive mother to become a successful attorney, wife and mother.”
Kamali recounts her own objectification story in this video. “I was 18 and feeling totally out of power...I was so humiliated,” she recalls. She hopes with this campaign “...[we’re] creating awareness, we’re cleansing our souls and we’re becoming emotionally free of a series of incidents that have changed our behavior and affected our lives.”
