Oprah Scales Back Favorite Things Episode Due to Economy

In this economy, everyone is holding back on the spending. And that even includes Oprah! She’s scaling way back on this year’s Favorite Things episode as a result of the recession the country is facing right now.

Oprah producers released this statement regarding the decision: “They’re some of Oprah’s favorite things, but this time there’s a twist…they cost next to nothing! On Wednesday's show, viewers reveal their creative ways to spend less over the holiday season. You’ll meet a mom who shows us how to create a one-of-a-kind treasure that comes straight from the heart Then, one family talks about their very own tradition that doesn’t cost a cent. You’ll also hear some great ideas to make your holiday party memorable and affordable. And, Oprah unveils a special gift that won’t cost you a thing! Find out how to have the thriftiest holidays ever.”

What a Debbie Downer! We completely understand Oprah’s decision to do it, and it’s very responsible of her. But it’s soooo much fun to watch the audience scream and cry when they find out what they’re getting!
