Oprah Winfrey Owns it for 'Harper's Bazaar'!

Oprah Winfrey Owns it for 'Harper's Bazaar'!

Oprah Winfrey flashes a big smile for her feature in the November 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, on newsstands October 23.

Here’s what the 58-year-old television personality had to share with the mag:

On her decision to start OWN: “This is the deal, when you have reached the peak of the mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries. I’d been in the right space at the right time, and I’d done that the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: you can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain, and start the climb all over again.”

On the initial problem with OWN: “What was missing from OWN was me. 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?”

On her guilty pleasures: “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!”
