I think what Frey did was wrong and probably potentially harmful to real drug addicts out there, but it wasnâ€™t that interesting until I read that Oprah put her stamp of approval on itâ€”â€œessential emotional truthsâ€ my ass.
We live in a world of political double speak, where even the big O thinks she is entitled to it.
It reminded me of the last time Oprah stopped her book club because John Franzen acted immaturely and embarrassed her. Now Frey has embarrassed her in a different way.
Caitlin put it best over IM: â€œDonâ€™t pay attention to Oprah, she has to defend the choice because she already made a bad one.â€
And she finished with on an old Oprah Book Club joke between us: â€œThis is what happens when you select living authors.â€
