Oprah Reveals Entries From Her Private Diaries
Oprah reveals excerpts from her personal diaries as far back as her first date when she was just 16 years old. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.
Oprah Winfrey's personal diaries, written from the age of 16 until adulthood, are being published in the April issue of O Magazine. Her private journal entries chronicle her rise from typical teen to media mogul.
In an entry dated September 22nd, 1970, 16-year-old Winfrey wrote about her first date: "Anthony asked me yesterday to go with him and today I answered yes. I hated to go against my parents but Anthony is so perfect (almost). I couldn't just say no."
In another diary entry written three months later, she pondered her future as a college co-ed and wrote, "Deciding about college is racking my brain. I've got a psychology test tomorrow and haven't studied one bit. Why I do stuff like this is beyond me."
When she was 25 years old Winfrey co-hosted a local talk show in Baltimore. She waited for another guy she liked to call: "It is difficult sometimes to not let this all encompassing engulfing loneliness overwhelm one's being. Yet I know it is so ridiculous. I make $50,000 a year. What do I have to feel sorry about?"
