’50 Shades of Grey’ Oprah’s Guilty Pleasure
As if ’50 Shades of Grey’ was selling enough copies, it has recently received an endorsement of sorts from none other than Oprah Winfrey. The 58 year old Oprah recently admitted “Oh I have downloaded all the Fifty Shades of Grey novels and for the first time I can take some guilty pleasure and just read. But I’m thinking, stop with the story, get to the juicy part!” E.L James the author must really be overjoyed that Oprah too is enjoying the book.
For the uninitiated Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic novel. Set largely in Seattle, it traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices. Oprah has added that “Bathing is my hobby. I love creating bathing experiences – bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milks… Oh, yeah! I go prune. I go waaaay prune. I’ve gone to sleep”. Seems like this hobby of hers is completely in sync with what the book has to offer and nothing like a relaxing and a sensual bath, to accompany an erotic novel.

While she was at it, Oprah also brought up the mention of OWN the network she is planning to launch. All of the relaxation that she is seeking, is probably because she had quite the uphill task in getting OWN off the ground. “What was missing from OWN was me,” she says. “It required my full-on energy. You know, this past year has been challenging, but it’s also been one of the greatest experiences for me getting to know me. What do you do when you don’t have the wind at your back?”
It seems like Oprah finally realized, how much of her involvement was required to make OWN a success. Also, in 2013 Oprah shall be seen in a movie called ‘The Butler’, which is a movie about a White House butler, who serves eight American Presidents over the course of three decades. Giving her company in the movie would be actors like John Cusack, Liev Schreiber, Robin Williams, and Forest Whitaker, besides many others.
