Oprah Winfrey Makes $12 Million By Tweeting About Bread

Oprah Winfrey just got a little bit more richer thanks to her endorsement of Weight Watchers.

The 61-year-old media mogul posted a video on Twitter announcing that she has lost 26 pounds so far on the diet plan, all while still eating bread.

“I lost 26 pounds, and I have eaten bread every single day,” Oprah says in the clip.

Right after Oprah sent out the tweet, the Weight Watchers stock went up by a little over $2 per share. Seeing as she owns six million shares in the company, that means the valuation of her share in the company went up by $12 million because of the tweet!

Just because the stock price went up, it doesn’t mean that Oprah has $12 million more in her bank account though. She will have to sell the shares to receive the money.

“Many times you look in the mirror and you don’t even recognize your own self because you got lost—buried—in the weight that you carry. Nothing you’ve ever been through is wasted, so every time I tried and failed, every time I tried again, and every time I tried again, has brought me to this most powerful moment to say, ‘If not now, when?’” Oprah adds. “I feel that way, and I know millions of other people feel that way. Are you ready? Let’s do this together.”

'Who's the Boss?' Star Danny Pintauro Reveals He's HIV Positive

Danny Pintauro opened up for the first time about being HIV positive in an interview with Oprah that aired on Saturday (September 26) for her show Oprah: Where Are They Now?.

The 39-year-old former Who’s the Boss? star also talked about his crystal meth use and how he was forced to reveal he’s gay back in 1997.

“I wanted to tell you this a long time ago, but I wasn’t ready — I’m ready now — that I’m HIV positive, and I have been for 12 years,” Danny said. “It’s just a big deal. It’s not something that people are talking about right now really.”

Oprah Winfrey's 'O Magazine' Celebrates 15th Anniversary!

Oprah Winfrey looks elegant as can be on the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine‘s 15th anniversary issue, on newsstands April 14.

Here is what the legendary talk show host had to share with her mag:

On her dream for O, The Oprah Magazine: “For the past 15 years, we’ve been able to fulfill on a monthly basis, the original dream for this magazine. The original dream is that it would be a manual or a guide to meet women exactly where they are in their lives and to help them elevate and exalt their lives in such a way that they could literally live their best lives.”

On past cover shoots: “The covers are always great experiences. I remember being in a waterfall in Puerto Rico with my hair wet and my clothes wet and I remember feeling like, ‘Oh! So this is the glamorous life of doing magazine covers.”

On how proud she is of the magazine: “I just don’t know a magazine that better fits women where they are in their lives without the expectation that they have to be anything other than who they really are. Our magazine is really about enhancing who you are, not saying you have to be like or do like anybody else.”

FYI: Oprah is wearing an Xscape dress customized with Swarovski crystals along with Leviev earrings on the cover.
