Oprah, for those of you who haven’t heard, is going back down that yo-yo and has lost 26 pounds since August. She’s joined forces with Weight Watchers and this time has vowed to make her weight loss permanent. Way to go Oprah! Get that staff of personal chefs and image consultants working!
Meanwhile, Barkhad Abdi, the Captain Phillips actor who played a Somali pirate, is taking inspiration from Oprah’s weight challenges. He has been trying to gain weight, and has vowed to gain pound for pound all the weight that Oprah loses. He has consulted with Oprah to find out which fast food eateries she has given up.
I guess he was hired to play the role since not only is he a great actor, but pirates are known to be really skinny?
