Oprah Winfrey announces U.S. arena tour

Oprah, now coming to a city near you!

That’s right: Oprah Winfrey is going on tour. In the fall of 2014, Winfrey and a few special guests will embark on a series of “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekends,” traveling to arenas in eight cities. Every stop will last two days. Each Friday, Oprah will share her personal story; each Saturday will see a day-long gathering of other leaders and pop culture figures.

“All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space,” Winfrey said in a press release. “I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it.”


Oprah 'sorry' for frenzy over Switzerland racism claim

Oprah Winfrey says she’s “sorry” that a media frenzy emerged after saying she experienced racism during a trip to Switzerland.

“I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland,” Winfrey said Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere of Lee Daniels: The Butler.

“I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don’t expect that you would be able to be there,” she continued.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Winfrey recalled a clerk at an upscale Zurich boutique refusing to show her a handbag. Winfrey said she was told she could not afford the $38,000 purse.
