When Oprah likes you…No, when Oprah LOVES you…she throws her full might behind whatever it is that you’re selling, leading her lambs to your project and guaranteeing smash hit success.

Just ask Jessica Seinfeld.

This weekend it was Barack Obama. Last night it was Denzel Washington at the premiere of The Great Debaters, a film he directed in which he also stars. It’s no secret – Oprah worships Denzel. But then again, who doesn’t worship Denzel?

No one can enunciate like Denzel.

But feast your eyes on Ope’s long leather skirt. You likey?
