Former Springfield City Councilwoman, Kristi Fulnecky, joins Nick Reed this hour: Oprah Winfrey is being "cancelled" after a decades-old video of her interviewing Dolly Parton resurfaced. In the interview, Winfrey asked Parton about work she had done on her face and body. Critics are claiming Winfrey was "body-shaming" Parton. A Gold Star father said President Joe Biden bristled and bluntly responded to his request that he learn the stories of his Marine son and the 12 other service members killed last week in Afghanistan. America's closest ally is roundly condemning Biden and questioning its relationship with the United States.
Prince Harry is writing what his publisher is calling an "intimate and heartfelt memoir".Random House expects to release the book, currently untitled, late in 2022."I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," the Duke of Sussex, 36, said in a statement on Monday."I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story — the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I've learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful."Financial terms were not disclosed. Harry will donate proceeds to charity, according to Random House."Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him," Random House announced."Covering his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story."Diana Princess Of Wales, Prince William and Prince Harry visit the 'Thorpe Park' Amusement Park in 1993. (Photo / Getty) Monday's announcement comes four months after Harry and his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, made worldwide news during their interview with Oprah Winfrey near the couple's home in Montecito, California. Meghan spoke of feeling lonely and nearly suicidal before they left England last year and Harry acknowledged tension with his father, Prince Charles, over his decision to step back from his royal duties and his marriage to the biracial American actor."There is a lot to work through there," Harry said about his relationship with his father, who was divorced from Diana, Princess of Wales, at the time of her fatal car accident in 1997."I feel really let down. He's been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like. And Archie [Harry and Meghan's son] is his grandson. I will always love him, but there is a lot of hurt that has happened."Harry told Winfrey that he felt trapped by royal life and that his family cut off him financially and took away his security. He also acknowledged his relations were strained with his brother, Prince William."I was trapped, but I didn't know I was trapped," Harry said, before adding, "My father and my brother, they are trapped."Last month, Meghan published the picture book The Bench through Random House Books for Young Readers.

They were once so close.Princes William and Harry grew up together, supported each other after their mother's untimely death and worked side by side as they began their royal duties — two brothers seemingly bonded for life by blood, tradition and tragedy.But those links are now painfully strained as William sits in London defending the royal family from allegations of racism and insensitivity made by Harry and his wife, Meghan, from their new home in Southern California.Royal watchers will be looking closely for any signs of a truce — or deepening rift — on Thursday when William and Harry unveil a statue of their mother, Princess Diana, on what would have been her 60th birthday. The event in the Sunken Garden at London's Kensington Palace will be their second public meeting since Harry and Meghan stepped away from royal duties over a year ago.People shouldn't expect a quick resolution of the conflict because the two men are fighting over core beliefs, says Robert Lacey, a historian and author of "Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult.'' William is defending the monarchy, and Harry is defending his wife."It's a matter of love versus duty, with William standing for duty and the concept of the monarchy as he sees it," Lacey said. "And then from Harry's point of view, love, loyalty to his wife. He is standing by her. These are very deeply rooted differences, so it would be facile to think that there can just be a click of the fingers."But finding some sort of rapprochement between the princes is crucial to the monarchy as Britain's royal family seeks to appeal to a younger generation and a more diverse population.When Harry married Meghan just over three years ago, it seemed as if they would be central figures in that next chapter of the royal story.The Fab Four — William and his wife, Kate, together with Harry and Meghan — were seen as a cadre of youth and vigor that would take the monarchy forward after the tumultuous 1990s and early 2000s, when divorce, Princess Diana's death, and Prince Charles' controversial second marriage to Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, cast doubt on the future of the institution.Meghan, a biracial former TV star from Los Angeles, was expected to be an important part of that effort, with Black and Asian commentators saying that for the first time there was a member of the royal family who looked like them.But the words "Fab Four" were quickly replaced in tabloid headlines by "Royal Rift."First, their joint royal office was dissolved. Then, Harry stepped away from royal duties and moved his family to North America in search of a more peaceful life. William pressed on with royal tasks, including goodwill events like accompanying his grandmother to Scotland this week to tour a soft drink factory.The relationship was further strained in March when Harry and Meghan gave an interview to U.S. talk show host Oprah Winfrey.Harry confirmed rumors that he and his brother had been growing apart, saying "the relationship is 'space' at the moment" — though he added that "time heals all things, hopefully." Harry also told Winfrey that his father, Prince Charles, didn't accept his calls for a time.And then came the real shocker. The couple revealed that before the birth of their first child, an unidentified member of the royal family had expressed concern about how dark his skin might be. Days after the broadcast, William responded, telling reporters that his was "very much not a racist family."But whatever their disagreements, out of respect for their mother, William and Harry won't put their differences on display during the statue ceremony, said historian Ed Owens, author of "The Family Firm: Monarchy, Mass Media and the British Public 1932-1953," which examines the royal family's public relations strategy."We're not going to see any acrimony or animosity between the brothers on Thursday,'' Owens said. "I think reconciliation is a long way off, but nev...

The run-times are getting leaner and meaner. Not that much meaner. I'm still making fun of Jay Leno; but tonight, Oprah Winfrey gets some criticism too.Going back to November 19, 2009, tonight's schedule includes: Community S1E10 - "Environmental Science", Parks and Recreation S2E10 - "Hunting Trip", The Office S6E11 - "Shareholder Meeting", and 30 Rock S4E06 - "Sun Tea". It's NBC's Green Week, so they're forcing the shows to shoehorn in environmental conscious themes. Being told by a massive corporation to be eco-friendly is handled with the irreverence you should expect. And, in breaking news, Oprah Winfrey has announced that she will be ending her daytime talk show at the end of its 25th season. I'll handle that news with the irreverence you should expect.Buy a brownie online, take some general anesthetic, hop in a complimentary limo, and leave your hunting license at home!
This is Entrepreneurs of Faith, a Sunday episode of Monetization Nation. I'm Nathan Gwilliam, your host. In today's episode, we're going to discuss an inspiring commencement speech Hugh B. Brown gave about coming to understand God's method for helping us learn, grow and improve. All of us have challenges and trials. We each have times we feel cut down, and we need to remember that God is our gardener. He may cut us down, but he does so with the purpose of making us greater than we are now. We will also look at five successful people who were fired before becoming rich and famous and how they continued on despite their challenges. The Currant Bush In 1968, Hugh B. Brown, an attorney, educator, and church leader, gave a commencement speech at BYU. He encouraged the graduating students to develop a personal relationship with God and to keep close to Him as they moved onto the next stages of their lives. As part of his message, he shared a story of a currant bush. While Brown was on a farm in Canada, he found a currant bush. The bush had grown over six feet tall and showed no signs of blossoms or fruit, so Brown grabbed his pruning shears and cut the bush down until there was nothing left but a clump of stumps. As he looked at what was left on the bush, he saw what looked like a tear. He asked, “What's the matter, currant bush? What are you crying about?” And he thought he heard the bush speak. It seemed to say, “How could you do this to me? I was making such wonderful growth. I was almost as large as the fruit tree and the shade tree, and now you have cut me down. And all in the garden will look upon me with contempt and pity. How could you do it? I thought you were the gardener here.” With that, he responded, “Look, little currant bush, I am the gardener here, and I know what I want you to be. If I let you go the way you want to go, you will never amount to anything. But someday, when you are laden with fruit, you are going to think back and say, ‘Thank you, Mr. Gardener, for cutting me down, for loving me enough to hurt me.'” Ten years later, Brown found himself in Europe as a field officer in the Canadian Army during World War I. One day there had been a casualty. The man standing between Brown and the rank of a general had been lost in war. The day after, Brown received a telegram from London from General Turner, requesting he be brought to his office the following morning. Brown polished his boots and buttons and prepared himself for the meeting, expecting to be appointed an army general. However, when he went to London, the general roughly told him to sit down. He said, “Brown, you are entitled to this promotion, but I cannot make it. You have qualified and passed the regulations, you have had the experience, and you are entitled to it in every way, but I cannot make this appointment.” With that, he left the room. Brown leaned over the table and looked at his personal history sheet and saw a sentence written at the bottom that had his religious affiliation written with each letter capitalized. They had denied him the position because of his faith. On his way back to his tent, bitterness rose. He shook his fist at heaven and asked, “How could you do this to me, God? I've done everything that I knew how to do to uphold the standards of the Church. I was making such wonderful growth, and now you've cut me down. How could you do it?” Then he heard a voice that sounded like his own. It said, “I am the gardener here. I know what I want you to be. If I let you go the way you want to go, you will never amount to anything. And someday, when you are ripened in life, you are going to shout back across the time and say, ‘Thank you, Mr. Gardener, for cutting me down, for loving me enough to hurt me.'” Years later, Brown realized that if he had taken the position of a senior commanding officer, he wouldn't have experienced many of the blessings he had later on in life. Now, looking back, he is able to say, “Thank you, Mr. Gardener, for cutting me down.” God is our gardener. He knows what's best for us and sometimes we need to be cut down in order to grow. We may not understand it at first, but God knows where He needs us to be. We just need to trust Him. This same principle applies in business. As entrepreneurs with faith, we need to remember that God knows what is best for us. Sometimes our ventures may fail, or we may run into a dead-end where we have to pivot. We need to trust that God is in control and maybe using the failures to help us grow and lead us down a better path. 5 Successful People Who Were Fired Many successful entrepreneurs were fired before they made their big breakthroughs. God had to “cut them down” so they could find a path that would lead to something better. Elon Musk Before Elon Musk became the founder and CEO of SpaceX, became the CEO and product designer of Tesla, and gained a net worth of $166 billion, he was “cut down.” In 1999, Elon Musk started X.com, an online financial services company. He invested a large amount of money into the company as he took on his venture. However, in 2000, when X.com merged with a competing company to become PayPal, Musk was fired from his role as CEO due to disagreements (Source: Business Insider). Only a couple of years later, in 2002, Musk founded SpaceX, a space exploration technology company that is now valued at about $74 billion (Source: Forbes). Then, in 2004, Musk joined Tesla and in 2008, he took over as CEO (Source: Interesting Engineering). If Musk hadn't been fired from PayPal, there is a chance he would not be leading SpaceX and Tesla. Sometimes it takes failure to be pushed into something greater. Walt Disney Before Walt Disney created one of the largest media companies in the world, a company that is now worth more than $120 billion, his editor fired him from the newspaper because he “lacked creativity” (Source: Business Insider). This forced Disney to experiment with hand-drawn animation and eventually led him to start his first animation business, Laugh-O-Gram. When Laugh-O-Gram went bankrupt, it forced him to move to Hollywood and open his own studio. Then, when his distributor took the rights for his cartoon, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, it forced Disney to use his imagination and he created Mickey Mouse (Source: Walt Disney Archives). Disney experienced multiple setbacks within his career, however, he didn't let it stop him from moving forward. Each setback led him to a greater opportunity. We need to remember that sometimes we are stopped on the path we are on because God has something greater in mind for us. “All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me,” Disney said. “You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” Steve Jobs Steve Jobs was fired from Apple, the company he co-founded. When Jobs was 21, he co-founded the Apple Computer, and by the time he was 23, he became a millionaire, but when he was 30, he was fired from his own company. Jobs and John Sculley had a power struggle, and in 1985, Apple's board sided with Sculley (Source: ABC News). However, this setback ended up being one of the best things that could have happened to him. While Jobs was away from Apple, he learned valuable lessons that helped him achieve his future success. In 1996, Apple Computer asked Jobs to come back to the company. Jobs returned as Apple's CEO and led the company in the creation of great innovations, such as the iPod and iPhone. "I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter into one of the most creative periods of my life," Jobs said. J.K. Rowling J.K. Rowling was fired from her secretary position because she spent too much time daydreaming at work. Business Insider reported that Rowling secretly wrote stories on her work computer while dreaming up the story of a teenage wizard named Harry Potter. However, this setback actually paved the way for Rowling to start her novel. Her severance check helped support her while she focused on her writing (Source: Bustle). Now, J.K Rowling is worth just over $1 billion and is the author of one of the most successful series ever written. More than 500 million copies of the Harry Potter books have been sold worldwide, with 180 million sold in the United States alone (Source: MediaRoom). The first Harry Potter movie made $974.71 million (Source: Forbes) and all together, the films made over $7 billion (Source: ShowBiz CheatSheet). However, it is safe to say that Rowling wouldn't have been pushed to write the Harry Potter books if she wasn't fired. Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey was fired from reporting the evening news for Baltimore's WJZ-TV. Her producer told her she was “unfit for television news” since she showed too much emotion (Source: Inc.). However, this setback led Winfrey to work for a daytime television show, People Are Talking. The show became very popular and eventually led her to create her own show, the Oprah Winfrey Show. Her show has aired nationally for 25 seasons (Source: TVdb), and she's currently worth about $3 billion (Source: Forbes). Being fired was one of the best things that could have happened to Winfrey. "Wherever you are in your journey, I hope you, too, will keep encountering challenges. It is a blessing to be able to survive them, to be able to keep putting one foot in front of the other—to be in a position to make the climb up life's mountain, knowing that the summit still lies ahead," Winfrey said. Trusting in God As we trust in God and his plan for us, recovering from our setbacks will become much easier. God is our gardener. He may cut us down at points in our lives, but it is because He loves us. While we may be prevented from going down one path, the next path could lead to much greater things. While Brown gave his speech to a group of graduates, we can apply this same lesson as we move forward onto new stages of our lives. As we come closer to God and understand His love for us, we will have the courage to continue on. Brown said: “Now some of you as you go forward is going to meet with disappointment—perhaps many disappointments, some of them crucial. Sometimes you will wonder if God has forgotten you. Sometimes you may even wonder if He lives and where He has gone. But in these times when so many are saying God is dead and when so many are denying His existence, I think I could not leave with you a better message than this: God is aware of you individually. He knows who you are and what you are, and, furthermore, He knows what you are capable of becoming. Be not discouraged, then, if you do not get all the things you want just when you want them. Have the courage to go on and face your life . . .” Key Takeaways Here are some of my key takeaways from this episode: God is our gardener. He knows what's best for us and sometimes that means we need to be cut down in order to grow. Sometimes our ventures may fail, or we may run into a dead-end. Instead of giving up, let's learn and pivot. Many successful entrepreneurs were fired before they made their big breakthrough. God may stop us from going down one path because He knows there is another path that will lead to greater success. As we come closer to God and understand His love for us, we will have the courage to continue on His path for us.

Season 7, Episode 7 - On Purposefully Becoming The Footnanny - Gloria L. Williams, President/CEO, Footnanny, Inc.About GloriaGloria L. Williams got her big break when Oprah Winfrey discovered her magic touch and chose her as her personal pedicurist. And it was Winfrey who encouraged the professional nail tech to follow her heart for the “sole” and create Footnanny, her own brand of premium foot creams, soaking salts, essential oils, kits and accessories. But the story of Footnanny goes all the way back to Williams’ childhood in the suburbs of Chicago. There, she would accompany her Montgomery, Alabama-born mother, a natural healer, on rounds to give ailing neighbors old-fashioned rubdowns using homemade botanical creams and lotions. “My mother truly believed you could improve overall wellness through the feet. She did that through a combination of touch and aromatherapy, and at her side, I learned to do what she did,” says Williams, who later became a licensed pedicurist and certified reflexologist. “I wanted to create a line of products that would deliver a holistic experience beyond the basic pedicure,” says Williams of her Footnanny line of premium foot creams, soaking salts, essential oils, accessories and kits.Connect + learn more about Gloria: Website, FB, IG, Twitter + YouTube.Purchase your Footnanny products HERE + Use Code Oprah for a special discount.

Both a clan and a cultural institution, the royal family is also a business with a very specific, controlled brand that is intertwined with the business of fashion. On the latest episode of The BoF Podcast, Imran Amed is joined by author and royal-watcher Elizabeth Holmes to dissect how the royal family’s brand has been impacted by Meghan and Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey. On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — also known as Harry and Meghan — rocked the world when they revealed intimate details about their experiences in the British royal family and their decision to step back as ‘senior members’ in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. What they revealed in the interview has left not just the UK and the Commonwealth reeling, but challenged the entire world’s perception of the monarchy. BoF’s Imran Amed sat down with Elizabeth Holmes, a New York Times bestselling author, notable ‘royal watcher’ and style expert to contextualise the conversation with Winfrey and what it means for the future of royal fashion. ”When Princess Diana left the Royal Family, she made it very clear she did not need fashion in the same way, because she was able to use her own voice… And I think Meghan — now in her move to California — definitely doesn’t need it either,” Holmes said. “She will still continue to use it and promote brands that she believes in and has connections to, but when you can use your voice, you’re not relying on your fashion to talk for you.” Related Articles: Have We Reached Peak Royalty?

Britain and its royal family absorbed the tremors Monday from a sensational television interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, in which the couple said they encountered racist attitudes and a lack of support that drove the duchess to thoughts of suicide. In a two-hour soul-baring interview by Oprah Winfrey, the couple painted a deeply unflattering picture of life inside the royal household, depicting a cold, uncaring institution that they had to flee to save their lives. Meghan told Winfrey that at one point “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.” She said she sought help through the palace’s human resources department but was told there was nothing it could do. Meghan, 39, admitted that she was naive at the start of her relationship with Harry and unprepared for the strictures of royal life. The former television star, who is biracial, said that when she was pregnant with son, Archie, there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.” Harry confirmed the conversation, saying: “I was a bit shocked.” He said he would not reveal who made the comment, though Winfrey said he told her it was not either of his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II or her husband, Prince Philip. Harry and Meghan, known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, announced they were quitting royal duties last year, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media, and moved to North America. That split became official this year, and the interview was widely seen as their first opportunity to explain their decision. Today on AirTalk, Los Angeles Times and royals expert Patt Morrison joins Larry to share her reaction to the interview and talk about what it means for the future of the British monarchy, for Harry and Meghan, and for the other members of the royal family.

“The future never takes care of itself; it is taken care of, shaped, molded, & colored by the present. Out today’s are what out yesterdays made them; our tomorrows must inevitably be the product of our today’s.” - Dr. Dennis Kimbro You may have heard the term ‘generational wealth’ and thought, ‘Wow, that sounds important'. But at the same time, you might have pushed it to the back of your mind because you have more pressing issues. Building generational wealth from scratch isn't easy for anyone. It's especially challenging for Black Americans. For many Black Americans in the position to build wealth for the first time, guidance and resources usually don't come from previous generations. Therefore, we must rely on each other by hiring people from own communities and investing in each other's businesses. In today’s episode, the 3rd part of my Black History Month series, I interview Charles Winfrey, President & CEO of The RollOver Co. Charles & I will discuss ways Black Americans can start building wealth for themselves and their kids today. Charles E. Winfrey is a nationally recognized Financial Educator, Author, Speaker & retirement Planner who has been seen on NBC, ABC, & CBS network affiliate. As the Author of Seven Secrets to Financial Success, Rollover Mistakes Retires Make & Creator of The Abundant L.I.F.E. Wealth Process, Charles has touched tens of thousands with his financial wisdom and systems.
