Oprah Makes Secret Trip To South Africa

This weekend while I was stuffing my face with pumpkin pie and watching football, Oprah Winfrey, as usual was saving the world.

Oprah headed back to her troubled girls leadership academy in South Africa to meet with and apologize to one of the girls who had been embroiled in the academy's alleged abuse scandal this fall.

Oprah had a surprise meeting with the girl and her family to personally apologize for the alleged abuse and to invite her back to the school so she can finish eighth grade.

The girl's parents were initially upset because they were not invited to last month's big Oprah apology meeting and felt alienated by the school and parents. But Ms. Winfrey is nothing if not perfect so naturally she fixed the slight.

"I am happy because at last we had a chance to speak. Oprah resolved everything," the girl's father said.

Now I wonder if she also gave them a few of her favorite things like say that panini maker! I want one of those things so bad.
