    Oprah Winfrey and Weight Watchers announced a partnership Monday in which Winfrey is buying a 10% stake in the company and taking a seat on its board.

    The company said it would broaden its focus to emphasize health and happiness, not just weight loss.

    Winfrey paid just under $7 a share -- about $43 million -- for her stake.

    Shares of Weight Watchers (WTW)more than doubled on the news, to nearly $14 a share.

    "Weight Watchers has given me the tools to begin to make the lasting shift that I and so many of us who are struggling with weight have longed for," said Winfrey. "I believe in the program so much I decided to invest in the company and partner in its evolution."

    Why does WW want someone on its Board who can't maintain a diet herself with personal chefs, shoppers, trainers etc.

    How many insiders bought the $10 calls with prior info that knew before? That fat ass negro woman from the south not helping the rest of us black folks. A month ago, the October $10 calls were .02 cents. Open interest was none..Had a silly asshole like my self bet $200 bucks then, would have a cool $40 grand....fuck your OFRA!! Keep us outta da loop.....eat more ribs...negro!

    Yes, but they were leveraged out the who ha. They needed cash. She is a business woman, but w/ 2bil I think she can kick back at this point. Worry about her tv network instead.

    I gained weight on Weight Watchers. I don't know if they have it now but when I used it they had the "eat all the vegetables and fruits you want" thing and I ate about 10 pounds of carrots a week.

    I looked into it just for kicks but it seems ridiculous, having to look up "points" for EVERYTHING, I figured you'd just be better off w/a calorie counter app or something. Apparently these apps are responsible for their declining business. (and the fact that you have to PAY to be in their program - shoot, you pay Nutrisystem or Jenny Craig but at least they ship you food....)

    I lose weight when I cut back on food and exercise more. I don't know who I was trying to kid thinking I could eat 10 pounds of carrots a week.
