Time.com: There's baking soda and vinegar, gasoline and a match, acid and eyeballs and Oprah and James Frey. Or wait — should we scratch that last pair off the list?

How else can she justify her "Hold On" tattoo?

I don't know what the hell made her even think of Frey since she tore him a new one, unless she's on some religious pilgrimage to forgive all the assholes in her life.

Oh, and the "Hold On" tattoo is on her butt.

(for those who don't know, many of Frey's believers use the "Hold on" mantra repeated in his million little pieces book when they need inner strength... some got tattoos, rumored, for added help.)

I don't understand this

He lied. He made up massive parts of his book, he said it was all true and the massive sucess of the book was practically all because of Oprah, her book club and his being on her show.

What has she got to apologise for? I could understand if it was Frey apologising to her as part of promotion for his new book but the only people she has to apologise to is her audience!
