An anonymous until yesterday blogger, Robyn Okrant, was on NPR's All Things Considered yesterday to discuss her website, Living Oprah. Okrant's mission? To "live as Oprah advises on her television show, on her website and in the pages of her magazines" for one year in order to potentially "find bliss." We were totally prepared to hate this woman and her gimmicky site, but we actually found her charming. Yeah, the site is a gimmick, but it's an entertaining one and a comment on the vaunted place the big O has in our society. What's more, Okrant (formerly known as "LO" before she ditched the anonymity) is always willing to call Oprah out on her smugness and her penchant for shaming people (see: Frey, James).
