Oprah 'bummed' with Edmonton hotel
By Matt Dykstra, Edmonton Sun
Oprah Winfrey landed in Edmonton on Sunday only to find out that her hotel doesn’t carry her network.
The famous 58-year-old American talk-show host tweeted that she was in Canada.
“Hotel doesn’t carry OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network). Called ahead they said they did” she tweeted, using the hashtag “bummed.”
Oprah graced the city to host her sold-out show “An Evening with Oprah Winfrey,” which will take place Monday night at Rexall Place.
According to the event’s description, Oprah will “offer insights and stories from throughout her life, illustrating ways attendees can take control of their lives to reach their full potential.”
Last week, the celebrity made headlines when disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong admitted to her in a TV interview that he used performance-enhancing drugs.
