Oprah's new line of organic food and bathroom products
Several applications to trademark 'Oprah’s Organics,' for bath soaps, sunscreen, massage oils, hair products, as well as organic salad dressings, frozen vegetables, soups, beverages and snack dips, were filed late last month according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Organization.
Applications for an 'Oprah’s Farm' trademark for a beverage and catering service, as well as 'Oprah’s Harvest' were also recently submitted - the addresses of which include the Wilshire Boulevard location of Ms Winfrey’s business and the Chicago offices of Winfrey’s Harpo Inc.
If she wants to sell organic foods, then she needs to lose 70lbs.
Wow. Everyone wants to be Martha Stewart but without putting in all of the work...and Martha HAS done the work. She's never wasted a day of her life. Winfrey's weight issues reveal an inherent laziness of character. She's had her run in the sun. She jump started the careers of Phil and Oz. When will it all be enough for her? Why is she go greedy and refusing to let go and let us all move on?

Megalomania. Of course in Oprah's world, that's a jumbo sized portion of 'organic' Chinese noodles.
R2, that's the funniest post I've seen in a long time.
She wants to be Paul Newman - but I assume none of these profits are going to charity?
R2, that's ridiculous. She built a huge empire and had a top daytime show for years. That's not laziness of character. I suspect if we spent time around you, we could find plenty of flaws.
R6 = Sexually frustrated 50 something female typing from her keyboard sticky with the remnants of ice cream and sweet pickle juice, wearing a filthy nightgown wondering where it all went wrong.
Those organic hair products better work miracles or black women will protest from coast to coast. OWN will be OVAH. She is taking a big risk on this.
According to the article, the organic products will only be sold in Hawaii.
I don't think it will work.
Don't you think she is just going to outsource another company (that already makes similar products) to make the products and just put her name on it?
Will she be competing with Josh and his hubby?
"Oprah's Farm" brand?
An unfortunate choice. Countdown to some disgruntled employee's expose of working "on The Plantation."
If Oprah wants organic bathroom products that's cool but if she is hawking healthy food it makes her look ridiculous since she has been unwilling to control her own weight.
R3 I don't konw why so many people think Martha is so fucking great. She rips off other people's recipes and her "authority" on all things home is a joke...someone just decided she has good taste and the public foolishly followed along.
This is a stretch. She's a media company, not products. I predict it will fail.
The people of Maui are already pissed at O for building some road which they'd wanted built for ages. Oprah built it in 2010...and made it private.
Hi Oprah: I want to you and Margaret Shug Avery samples of our 100% All natural Cheesecakes Sugar Free With an Almond Crust. The company was founded by Alta Davis a wonderful African American now in her 80's over twenty years ago.
Goji Berries are her favorite!

"Organic" sunscreen? What a colossal fraud and a waste of money. I bet it has "anti-oxidants" too. Fraus are so fucking gullible.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
