Oprah Apologizes for Abuse Scandal

Oprah Winfrey called for an emergency meeting in South Africa, regarding the abuse allegations that have surfaced at her all-girls school. Oprah had visited the school twice in the past few weeks, after allegations that one of the employees fondled a female student and that other students had been physically abused. "I've disappointed you. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry," Oprah told the families. The talk show queen also gave the students her personal phone number, her e-mail address and her mailing address so they could contact her at any time, if they should need anything. And the parents of the students don't seem to be holding Oprah responsible for the problems at the school. "It's not your fault. We don't blame you," one father reportedly told her. "You trusted them. You have more passion for the school and its existence than anyone else in this country, including us parents." Heads are going to roll.
