Oprah has reworked/rebranded/renamed her series Oprah's Next Chapter, the show where she sits in a room and gabs with some of her nearest, dearest, wealthiest and most beautiful friends. Now it's called Oprah Prime and this Sunday's episode is dedicated to "aging gracefully."
In order to explore this hot-button issue, Oprah sat in an open, well-lit loft space with Sharon Stone and Cameron Diaz, two Hollywood blondes who have been vocal about their thoughts on the topic as of late. While the episode could have been hypothetically interesting, the promo clips make it look like the sort of Sunday night fare you'll skip in favor of finally diving into old episodes of Rome on HBOGo.
"We don't allow other women to age gracefully. And we don't give ourselves permission to age gracefully," Diaz tells Oprah. "It's almost as if we have failed if we don't remain 25 for the rest of our lives."
Stone also speaks in platitudes. "I think that to be the best you can be, we have to recognize that it's an internal thing as well as an external thing. We have to have internal health and internal wellness," she says.
Here are two other clips, one where Diaz claims she couldn't wait to turn 40 and the other where Stone talks about how she relishes being called sexy at her age. Mysteriously, the two women look like they were interviewed separately, indicating that producers were worried that having the two of them in the same room would have made the space so warm that it would have been difficult for everyone there to remain physically comfortable.
