What Oprah Misses About Chicago

She tells it to Steve Harvey today but the Beachwood got an early look through its Chikileaks program. To wit:

* Her ratings.

* The limo ride in from the airport.

* The obsequious press.

* Steve Harvey.

* Those good vibrations emanating from Rahm Emanuel's City Hall.

* A servile workforce willing to sign mind-bending confidentiality agreements.

* The ease of pulling off a smug sense of superiority.

* That time Rosie O'Donnell did a show here.

* All those kids she gave up on.

* Stella Foster.

* Steak and martinis at Gibson's with John of God.

* Private weather briefings from Tom Skilling.

* Those days when she paid to have Millennium Park all to herself.

* Svengoolie.

* Snorting coke with Billy Dec.

* Hanging out at the Division Street baths with the Jacksons and Neil Steinberg.

* Being halfway to both Los Angeles and New York.


Comments welcome.
