Remember oh-so-many years ago when Oprah Winfrey stood behind Book-of-the-Month-Club awardee James Frey when his book A Million Little Pieces was proven to not be as non-fiction as originally purported?
She brought him on her show, reputedly, to tell his side of the story and then, while on the air, she ripped him a new one for betraying her trust and making her look like a fool?
I never much cared for Oprah prior to that moment. Afterwards, I loathed her.
What she failed to recognize was that even with some falsehoods, what Frey wrote was a masterpiece on drug addiction and attempted recovery and it’s effects on the family and friends of the addict.
It was a uniquely told and written book and I loved it insanely.
And I hated Oprah for trashing it.
So, back in 2005, I did this...
And all was right in my world.
Day 4, y’all!
