“It takes a lot to make Oprah Winfrey tremble, but even the chat show queen and cultural icon must be quaking in her Manolos at the news that she is in the sights of the poison pen biographer," UK newspaper The Times wrote. Every employee in Winfrey"s company, Harpo Productions, is contractually banned forever from speaking about what they have done and seen while working for talk show host. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg said: “Whatever Oprah does to her cringing underlings, she must cut out their tongues with a hot iron, because you never, ever hear them dishing dirt."
“So it"s one of two things: Either they will line up to anonymously find an empty spot on her back to stick the [knife] in; or, and this is my bet, they"re so inculcated with fear that Kitty will come up with a dry well," Steinberg added. However, Kitty herself remained tight-lipped on details. “Oprah Winfrey has fascinated me for many years – as a woman, she has wielded an unprecedented amount of influence over the American culture and psyche," she said. Kitty, an American investigative journalist, has published unflattering biographies of the British royals, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and the Bush family.
