    Howard will go mental.

    Oprah Winfrey loves bread and investors love Oprah.

    After the mogul tweeted a video of herself Tuesday afternoon proclaiming she had lost 26 pounds while eating bread every single day on a Weight Watchers diet, shares of the diet company (WTW) skyrocketed more than 20%, closing at $13.29 a share.

    As a result, Oprah — who owns 6.4 million shares, or roughly 10% of the stock, according to data from S&P Capital IQ —earned $12.5 million dollars on a single tweet, or more than $3 million an hour.

    I got suspicious and decided to look at Starbucks' stock over the past year. What if Howard's constant promotion of the brand actually resulted in a huge spike for them?

    Well, I've got good news and bad news: Starbucks did receive a spike when Howard embraced them last August, and pledged his undying love to their black coffee. Unfortunately, that spike went in the wrong direction. :bigcry:

    I like the fact that she refuses to appear on the show. Guess she isn't buying the evolved Howard.

    Howard would do the show at 2 AM on a Sunday if that was one of Oprah's terms.

    Right?! That would be the ultimate sign that he's one of the cool kids. He'd trample Jen and Justin and even Jimmy to get a sniff at that...:snicker:

    I think Oprah & Gayle had the surgery to lose wt & they will both say it was WW. She has never been able to lose wt & keep it off & now they both have to do it. I was never a big fan but now I positively hate her.

    She'd be leaving that studio with a gift bag like no other. I'm talking gold friendship bracelet, Mont Blanc pen, leather journal, and a custom signed portrait by Howard himself.

    It's crazy what these celebs get paid. I think the Kardashians get paid $10,000+ per tweet. Insane.

    If the part about making $12 mil by tweeting doesn't drive the Wig crazy the part about losing weight by eating bread will.

    Beth even calls herself Bethman, which is very similar to Stedman!
