Yessssss Auntie!!! Congratulations to Oprah Winfrey, she has just become one of the “World’s 500 Richest People.”
O’s empire hit a record $4 billion Monday, making her the first black female entrepreneur on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. She debuted on the list in June at No. 494 and is now at No. 489, just behind Mark Cuban and Ross Perot.
Winfrey was able to accomplish this goal thanks to her partnership with weight watchers, but most of her coins come from her ownership of OWN, Harpo Films, and her iconic talk show, “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which ran from 1986 to 2011. Today her stake is worth $427 million
