Oprah is being haunted by her foe againNovember 26th, 2007 - 7:55 pm ICT by admin
New York, November 26 (ANI): Oprah Winfrey has once again fallen into trouble with the man who allegedly tried to sell audiotapes containing details about her private life and business affairs last year.
Keifer Bonvillain was accused of trying to extort 1.5 million dollars for the tapes, which believably features a high-ranking employee at Winfreys company Harpo making unkind remarks about her.
However, the charge did not hold up in an Illinois court.
Bonvillain has now launched a website in a bid to get a publisher for his tell-all book Ruthless.
“An office manager at Harpo broke his silence and his confidentiality agreement when he spoke freely about Oprah Winfrey’s private life and business affairs. Keifer Bonvillain underestimated one of the world’s most powerful women when he, armed with clandestinely recorded tapes, decided to write a ‘tell-all’ book unmasking the famed celebrity, the New York Post quoted him, as stating.
Within days of Harpo learning about the book, two men were attempting to break into Keifer’s home - presumably to get the tapes. Oprah was desperate to keep the truth from being revealed . . . The fallout was Keifer’s highly publicized arrest,” he added.
The 37-year-old, who touts himself as a Louisiana-born “civil-rights activist”, has vowed to disclose that Harpo may have been involved in “blatant discrimination . . . This CEO not only knows about these practices . . . she condones them . . . Hours of taped conversations . . . reveal what they don’t want the public to know about (Oprah’s) private life, and a business that prides itself on its diversity.”
Winfrey’s representatives at Harpo were unavailable for comment. (ANI)
