Jan 4 (THAINDIAN NEWS) As today’s “Oprah Winfrey Show” starts, Oprah is standing, modeling a pair of what she calls “The best jeans for girls with a real “bootay.” They are known as the C.J. Jeans, created by Majik Johnson’s wife, “Cookie”. Cookie tells us what a hard time she had finding jeans to fit her curvy figure. She said that she soon realized that it was not a flaw in her, but in the industry, so she launched her own brand of “C.J.Jeans.” Oprah said that when she tried the jeans for a photo shoot, that these jeans were so comfortable that she didn’t want to take them off. “The “Boyfriend Jeans” as they are called, is now the new sweatpants.” she added. “Adam Glassman”, the editor for “O” magazine, absolutely loves these jeans because they are a good fit for anyone. He states that the fashion industry is used to seeing it’s products on young, very thin women. That is why their jeans usually won’t fit curvier women. He adds that this is changing and that Cookie is at the forefront of that change. These jeans start at $141 a pair. Adam also showed us a new jean out by “Lee” jeans available at “J.C.Penny” and online, that are great for curvier women and only cost $42. Everyone in the audience got a new pair of both “Lee” and C.J.” Jeans.

Oprah’s next “favorite” was a surprise flash mob, that was created by Michael Gracey, an award-winning director. It occurred when Oprah did her street show in Chicago, while “The Black Eyed Peas” were singing”I’ve Got A Feeling.” The entire crowd of over 20,000, all were dancing synchronised, but it all started with just one crazy looking girl. The build-up of energy was incredible,and this was extremely fun to watch, so much so that I looked it up on Youtube, so that I could share it with my readers. I did not find a good copy there, but after I continued to search, I found it on Oprah.com…go figure. Here is the link.Oprah’s Flash Mob Surprise.

For her next favorite, Oprah introduced us to her favorite pilot, Shawn D. Tucker.

The winner of The World’s Best Job winner, has only one task, to explore a beautiful island paradise and report his findings online. He has no set times to work, gets over one hundred and thirty five thousand dollars a year, and lives in luxury. He is in Australia’s Barrier Reef. His name is Ben Southall and he gets to share this life with his girlfriend. One audience member was invited to visit them in Australia, after her name was drawn for the prize.

Oprah’s favorite Vegan Chef is “Tal Ronnen”, who wrote the book “The Conscious Cook.” He showed us today how to make his famous “Celery Root Soup” with Granny Smith Apples. You can find the recipe here Celery Root Soup. He also showed a few other recipes, which can be found here Vegan Recipes.

The last favorite that Oprah shared with us today was actually two different new gadgets that are recommended by “Omar Wasow.” One is a pair of what looks like sunglasses, but is actually a movie viewer. “The Vuzix Wrap 310″ can be hooked up to a television or video game to bring the action right in your face. The last gadget he showed to us was “The Lightscribe Pulse Smartpen.” This pen has a camera as well as a microphone so it records everything that you write and hear. When you are finished with it, everything that it has recorded can be downloaded straight to your computer.

Today’s show was a lot of fun. I especially loved the Flash Mob, and suggest you check it out!
