If Oprah Winfrey is feeling stabbing pains between her shoulder blades, it may be a knife from the First Lady. But there's two opinions going around over the recent coolness between the two.
According to a Michelle sympathizer, "She's (Oprah) really seemed very full of herself in the last few years but since Obama has risen to power, she's been almost insufferably smug - like she's the only reason he got him elected. That's a crock of spit. And I'm not the only person who feels that way."
Then again....."Michelle had promised Oprah all kinds of special behind-the-scenes access for her upcoming Oprah TV Channel," disclosed a representative of the Media Queen.
"But now Michelle is backing out - telling Oprah she has to go through 'the proper channels' and speak to some of her advisers."
Those close to Oprah feel Michelle has gone back on a promise and stabbed her friend in the back.
"But Oprah believes Michelle is being manipulated by some jealous advisers - such as White House social secretary Desiree Rogers along with another of President Obama's old Chicago friends, Valerie Jarrett, who moved to Washington, D.C., to work in his administration," said the friend of Oprah, that was on several website of late.
Most of President Obama's advisers are concerned that Oprah will turn his presidency into a sideshow and will keep him from getting the nation's most important job done.
Perhaps that makes three opinions. So take your choice or come up with a new one. But there certainly is a coolness between to two that wasn't there during the pre-election years.
