A celebri-quote: Oprah Winfrey

Anything Oprah says makes news. Thus, this revealing comment -- quoted by "Extra!" -- at the recent Alvin Ailey Dance Theater's 50th anniversary celebration conjures up all sorts of images.

"In my wildest, wildest, crazy, crazy dreams, I am a dancer. ... When I've like had too many tequila shots and I go to sleep, I dream of being a dancer."

Why does it "conjure up all sorts of images"? Because she's battled weight problems? What's your point? Very disrespectful post.

Interesting that YOU should bring up the weight angle.

I found the quote interesting because a public figure thought it a good idea to mention what she dreams of when she has “like had too many tequila shots.” I thought that sort of foolishness was reserved for college kids and others too immature to drink wisely.
