Were you surprised by Oprah's weight gain?

Oprah recently admitted that she weighs over 200 pounds again. Why is this news? I noticed the last few months (on her show) that she had gained weight. I wondered why she wasn't saying anything about it. What do you think about Oprah's struggles with her weight? Does she seem more "real" to you than other celebrities? Or do you really not give a flying fig?

I also noticed that Oprah had gained some weight. I guess the reason that I was surprised is that I think of her as being such a together in charge of her life kind of person that I don't expect her to have the same kinds of problems that we mere mortals have. LOL. It gives me hope because I feel like I'm in charge of everything else in my life as well but just can't seem to get my weight issues under control. Good for her to be honest in an industry where people try to hide their problems instead of confronting them.

I have seen that episode wherein she said that she was ashamed of herself by letting herself down. Not only that, she also let her viewers down because she had been advocating weight loss and weight management but she is not an example herself. People can easily forgive her. She is just a normal person like all of us making mistakes.
