Oprah Winfrey is a talk show host on her own television show, The Oprah Winfrey Show. She is described as the "queen of talk shows", but she is much more than that. She owns her own television production company, has produced movies, is an actress and was nominated for an Academy Award, has produced a play on Broadway, is a book critic and can immediately make any book she recommends a best-seller, and she is a philanthropist, helping to raise money and support projects that help make the lives of children around the world better.
Oprah was born in Mississippi and later moved to inner-city Milwaukee where she lived in a very poor neighborhood with her single mother. She was raped at the age of 9 and has shared her story with millions on her show, fighting to expose and stop child abuse.
