Oprah v. Ellen

Since college, I have been involved in an epic war of words with one of my best friends over a very controversial subject: Who is better, Oprah or Ellen? I can still remember the day it started, when she wandered into my dorm room where I was watching Oprah and she boldly proclaimed "Oprah is so full of herself."  My jaw dropped and I my eyes widened in disbelief (Let us not forget that I am the girl who woke up at 3:30 in the morning and stood in the same spot for upwards of 8 hours to see Oprah). Thus began a two hour argument on the pros and cons of each. A fight that has now carried on for years.

Yesterday I went out to my mailbox to find a letter from my dear friend and was instantly excited as I typically am when I see something that does not resemble a bill. I tore it open and this is what I found:

I like how she highlighted it, just for emphasis.  Ridiculous.

I am now planning my revenge.  I am thinking about blowing up a poster sized picture of the O Magazine cover that featured Ellen and Oprah and having it super glued to my friend's wall.  Why hasn't Ellen had Oprah on her magazine cover? Oh that's right BECAUSE ELLEN DOESN'T HAVE A MAGAZINE.

*For the record I really like The Ellen Show, I just think Oprah is better. Far better. Infinitely better.

HAHAHAHA that just SCREAMS Katherine....sorry Melissa, but I am on Team Ellen.

I too am on Team Ellen. I hope we can still be friends!

melissa said...

Sorry, I'm with your friend. Team Ellen.

I haven't watched either since law school because I'm not home during the day anymore, but it used to drive me nuts that Oprah would repeat herself. She would say something twice for emphasis. It was like she thought it was so profound it deserved repeating.

I still think Oprah is amazing and does great things, but I'd rather watch Ellen anyday. Girl cracks me up. And I think she's gorgeous!

That is actually pretty funny your friend thought to do that, but you better get some revenge. I am sorry, but I agree that Ellen is more likable.

That is hilarious!! What a fun feud.

I love Ellen... (and in fact enjoy watching her show better than watching Oprah's) but Oprah is a freaking MOGUL. I think Ellen has a ways to go before they are "equal."

Haha, sorry, I am with your friend. I loathe Oprah!

LadyFi said...

Very funny. We don't get either show over here in Sweden, so I'm neutral.

I like them both. Oprah deals with more serious issues and I like and respect her for that. Ellen is more focused on the celebrities of the entertainment industry and that appeals to the under 35 crowd more. Yet if I were forced to chose one above the other, I'd chose Oprah. She's where she is because she addresses the realities so many people face like no one else.

Haha that's pretty funny! I am not a fan of Oprah at all (don't hate me!!!), but I could care less about Ellen, too.

Thanks for visiting my blog =)

Hahahaha. I didn't know there was a battle between these 2 going on, but I think I'm also on Team Oprah. Although I do love Ellen. Oh it's so hard!
