OPRAH AND WEIGHT WATCHERS
- Vinnie respects her, but she is not the person to look to for weight loss
- Vinnie and she are not friends, even though he was on the show
- When Vinnie was on Oprah, he was totally taken care of
- check out this cougar show with Vinnie’s pants if you haven’t seen them
- Oprah endorses Weight Watchers in a commercial in which she has a lot of excess weight
- She is getting paid for this
- She caused a big stir, especially on the Facebook page, when she put out a tweet about how she “loves bread” and gets to eat bread Weight Watchers
- Smart investment for Oprah because Weight Watchers makes their money from their clients’ failures
- Weight Watchers’ business plan from 2001: “Its members have demonstrated a consistent pattern of repeat enrollment of a number of years, signing up for an average of 4 cycles”
- IT DOESN’T WORK! And that’s why Weight Watchers makes so much money
- Vinnie was promised endorsement of his podcast by Oprah’s people, never got it
- Oprah is on his “shit list”
