Quotes

#Quote
1[When her talk show was not to blame in 2004]: Of course I did soul-searching, of course, after this happened we went back. I thought back about the show, and we all, you know, we all talked about it. We then and now still feel we did nothing wrong ... I think it's not fair to blame the show for the actions of someone. That happened three days after they left the show.
2[When relieved that she had breast implants in 1993]: I finally unloaded them, I can hug people again.
3What these heroes have accomplished is so much more than I expected and is so rewarding that I have to continue. Considering the current economic crisis, I can't stop now.
4There's no better feeling than to help everyday people become philanthropists and heroes in their own communities. It's amazing how much of a difference one person can make.
