Don't mess with our O!
Talk show titan Oprah Winfrey is hurt that her estranged father is ca$hing in on her fame to write a tell-all book about the never married multi millionaire.
Mama O is "shocked" and "disappointed" that she had to find out about the book from the New York Daily News and not her father himself.
Winfrey said she laughed recently when "one of my assistants said, 'The Daily News is calling. They say they heard your father is writing a book about you.' I said, 'That's impossible. I can assure them it's not true.'
Oprah's dad plans to call his book, Things Unspoken.
Ever the diplomat, Winfrey tried to smooth the situation with her dad over by saying, "I have a good relationship with him. We talk, we talk, we talk. I would have preferred to have known my father was working on this. It would have been a nice gesture, a courtesy."
In addition to her father, noted biographer Kitty Kelley is also working on a book about Oprah.
"I'm not cooperating with it, but if she wants to write a book, fine. This is America. I'm not discouraging it or encouraging it," says Winfrey.
