Monday Night With Oprah

May 23, 2006

The show started with Howard admitting he stayed up last night to watch Oprah’s “Legends Ball.” Howard said the program, in which Oprah held a party at her house to honor successful African American women, began with Oprah giving a tour of her house, which he described as “incredible.” Howard then reported Oprah divided the attendees into two categories – “youngins” and legends – although he found some members of the first group, like Halle Berry, Mariah Carey and Naomi Campbell, questionable. Howard also noted that only white people worked as servants at the event, which he believed was a calculated decision on Oprah’s part. Howard played a clip of the “youngins” reciting a poem to the legends, complete with dramatic tears from those involved because they were so moved by the experience.
