Could Oprah’s staffers take their own advice?

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Far be it from us to complain about anything on the Oprah Winfrey Network, which will no doubt fulfill its laudable intention to entertain and inform viewers with thoughtful, high-quality fare. After having had to watch such sleazy and exploitative offerings as “Dating in the Dark” and “16 and Pregnant” elsewhere, we want to give the folks at OWN all the encouragement and applause they deserve!

Still, it’s a curious thing — via her final season documentary and various behind-the-scenes pictorials at the new network, it’s hard not to notice how many of Oprah’s production team members are overweight, and not just by a few pounds. It seems a number of them, from producers to assistants, male and female alike, could use the healthy diet and exercise practices Oprah has embraced through the years with the help of trainer Bob Greene. (Wonder what their craft services tables look like?)

Of course, as Oprah’s fans are well aware, her weight battle has been an ongoing, up and down process — she’s fluctuated between a whopping 220 lbs. and running a marathon as a size 10 — as it is for many of us, stars and everyday folk alike.

Rosie O’Donnell, who has her own OWN show coming up later this year, devoted a segment of her Sirius radio show this week to the issue of obesity, candidly including herself — and mentioning that her 11-year-old son has recently been coming to her with concerns about his weight. She highlighted A&E’s Jan. 17-debuting “Heavy” series chronicling the journeys of 20 morbidly obese people seeking to get their lives back by taking off excess poundage in the triple digits — and cued listeners in about help available via Overeaters Anonymous.
