Oprah Winfrey fans will be happy to know that, after a two-year hiatus, the popular Favorite Things list — which caused her audience members to scream, cry, and/or faint upon its reveal — is making a comeback. On November 18, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) will run a two-hour special devoted to the product roundup. But Winfrey’s choices have already received some harsh criticism. Vanity Fair magazine has taken issue with some of the items on the list, like including a $450 bladeless fan , calling it “obscure and realistically unnecessary.” Commenter’s’ reactions were mixed, with one disappointed reader lamenting, “$88 for four bags of popcorn. Insane!”
Oprah comes out of obscurity on Oprah Network to push favorite things list on 2- hour special. Needs to add digital quarter to make call to someone who virtually cares.
