Oprah in the News
Take this for what you will, but some dude is claiming that he smoked crack with Oprah back in the 80s.
The guy’s name is Randolph Cook, and he dated Oprah back in the day. Randy has cancer now, and since his doctors are only giving him 2 years to live, he decided to write a tell-all book about his days with the talk show queen.
In The Wizard of O: My Life With Oprah, Randolph says that he smoked crack with Oprah in 1984. While the two were having sex. Yeah, I’ll let that thought marinate in your head for a second, while I try not to dry heave.
Oprah has confessed to using cocaine back in her 20s (in the 1970s), and she blamed it on her obsession with some guy. Since that was 10 years or so before Randy entered the picture, I’m guessing she was referring to some other drug fiend.
In an effort to get publicity for his book (presumably so he can get rich and die ballin’), Randolph told the National Enquirer that Oprah taught him how to smoke crack and the two freebased together for about six months. He also said Oprah was still doing crack while doing her show. He wrote:
“Americans have placed Oprah on a pedestal that has been seemingly invincible until now.“
Yeah, way to bring her down off of that pedestal, dude. Talking smack about one of the most rich and powerful people on earth right before you die is a good way to score brownie points and get on the good side of St. Peter. Hell, St. Peter is probably on Oprah’s payroll. She’s already got Dr. Phil and Rachel Ray, so it’s totally plausible.
