Surviving Your Multiple Family Member Tragic Deaths’

May 4, 2007 will be a day one couple will never forget. Their 3 children Kyle, Katie, Emma all died after a big rig slams into their family car. Lori and her mother were also in the car at the time. Oprah talks to the camera and says “It is possible no matter what you are facing right now, somehow you can keep going.” Lori and Chris Coble are talking to Oprah 3 years after the worst day of their life. Their kids were all under 6 years old.

How do you move forward?

  • The couple talks about making a pack and promised to never leave each other alone so the other person would not end their own life.
  • Chris says, they started going to counseling right away.
  • “Hold on to your love ones tight.”

What a blessing the couple gave birth to triples nearly one year after the accident. Get this they have 2 girls and 1 boy again! The couple also honors their first 3 children by giving each of their new triplets a middle name from a sibling that has past.

Surviving The Virgina Tech Shooting

The final segments include an interview with a young adult who survived the Virgina Tech Shootings. Colin Goddard was shot four times. Colin says, the sooner you can accept what happens the sooner you can move on. Living for 32 is a documentary on how Colin goes to gun shows and just buys guns.

Two women brave the television cameras to get help so they can move on with their love life. They tell Oprah that they are both 30-year-old virgin’s. They both have revealing sessions with sex therapist Dr. Laura Berman. Guess what? They have issues just as we all do it just so happens that it’s stopping them from progressing in their love lives. Of course, we did not see a 30-year-old male virgin confess on the show. Need I say more?

The Martha Stewart Empire Resigns Again

Stewart tells Oprah she has always believed, “If you have a job do it well!” Of course, the topic of her prison stay comes to the surface and Stewart says she gained strength, no longer associates with her former best friend who testified against her, and jokes how she left the lock up facility a cleaner place.

Oprah has Stewart look at her high school photo and asks “What would you tell her?” Stewart replies with great words to live by, “Be curious, always look to the future and to try to be passionate in life.”

Americans eat 2 billion grilled cheese sandwiches and Martha shares her culinary pieces of flair to make the most delightful yummy gooey snack. See just how beautiful you can make a grilled cheese look:

High Tech Ape

Oprah makes a joke…”Stop it you big Ape.” That was the punchline as she was ending the segment with Lisa Ling on her experience with an ape (bonobo). Ling shares a funny story of her experience with the ape Kanzi making a pass at her and at the cameraman. You’ve really got to watch this high-tech bonobo named Kanzi communicate with her trainer.

JK Rowlings The BILLION dollar Harry Potter creator says, she knows for sure that love is the most powerful thing of all. Rowling tears up thinking of 9/11 and the many who phoned their loved ones before they passed that day. 9/11 was the day when she knew love was the most powerful. This is her first interview with Oprah, which took place in Scotland. Oprah also asks the goddess of all things Harry Potter, what is your dream of happiness? The reply is “I’m pretty close.”

We have a lot of things in common says Oprah.

 

On the show they show a clip of Ms. Rowling’s Harvard commencement speech from 2008. If you have a some time to spare it is worth watching!

 

I found this interview to one of the best this season and I admit to never reading any of the Potter books. I found the conversation delightful and intelligent.  Thank you Oprah and JK Rowling!

Oprah plucks a universal message from her guest Lisa Bortz that people just want to be loved. Guest Lisa Bortz said, “I don’t need his approval. I just need his love.” Bortz was talking about how she didn’t want her dad’s approval of her relationship with her transgender partner Christine McGinn but wants his love. The couple agreed that they do feel Bortz’s fathers love towards each of them as well as their two children despite his political views. Bortz and McGinn were invited on the show to discuss their real life modern family unit, which I’m sure is like any other family raising twins. It just so happens that Christine McGinn was born as male and before his surgery took fertility precautions by preserving his sperm.

The hit television show Modern Family inspired Oprah show creators to find a diverse family unit. Oprah tells her audience I can say this for the first time on the the show, “Here is a mother who has fathered her own children!”

To lighten things up, the cast and crew of Modern Family makes an appearance. Of course, each of the cast members are loving every moment that they are living out their dream of being on Oprah!  Oprah is such a fan of the show that she even offers up her acting talent. She suggests, she could add more diversity by being their black neighbor, since after all her show is ending soon.

Jenny McCarthy tells Lady O about her Playboy shoot in 1993. It’s LOL!!!!

I have always loved funny lady Jenny McCarthy and from this show I love how she tells it like it is about her relationship with Jim Carey. Jenny talks about the line from the hit 90’s chick flick Jerry Maguire, “You complete me.”  She says, you are in trouble if you are looking for someone outside of yourself to complete you. Oprah agrees that line messed a lot women up!

 

A U.S. best-selling author Terry McMillian known for her book titled Waiting to Exhale is releasing the sequel Getting To Happy. On Oprah she and her gay ex-husband talk about their relationship. Terry says she finally forgives her ex-husband Jonathan. But for several years she did harbor anger. In case you didn’t know Jonathan was Terry’s inspiration for her book Stella Got Her Groove Back.

“The return makes one love the farewell.”

I’m sure I feel like many Oprah fans who are already hoping for a BIG return from the talk show legend after the completion of her Farewell Season (September 2011.) Although, there are over 100 shows yet to be taped in the final season, I’m hoping, wishing and praying the queen of daytime television will fill a time slot or two on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN.) But until then I will enjoy the ride! Read the rest of this entry »
