I wept at the girls’ stories, I felt their glee and joyous expectations when they left their impoverished one-room shacks and moved into their luxurious dorm rooms at Oprah’s $40 million academy. Surely, this could only be a positive story however you spin it, right?
So, why was I bothered, not only at what was shown, but also what Oprah revealed later when she appeared on Ellen’s talk show to tell us behind-the-scenes stories, like what had transpired after the lavish Christmas party that she hosted for the first 154 pupils at her exclusive new girls academy?
