"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.
Bonvillain gives a rare peak behind the scenes of some of Hollywood's brightest stars, the unsettling realities of Oprah's business world and the difficult journey to publication that included a pit stop in Federal jail. Now the secrets
they worked so hard to protect are3 being revealed one chapter at a time in this explosive Oprah expose." from a blurb on the book.
"It is rumored that once upon a time, Oprah Winfrey bought up the few copies of Keifer Bonvillin's (sic) courageous and BEYOND SHOCKING Tell-All book "RUTHLESS" so the world would not read it...after you read this EXTREMELY RARE book...you WILL believe the rumours! You can search the world over and you will NOT find this book for sale.
Appropriately priced due to the unavailability and extreme rarity in it's existence.
Oprah Winfrey does NOT want this book out there in circulation." - somebody trying to sell this book for ridiculously more than I am asking.
I have not read this book, but I would guess it's premise is way over-blown - Jon Wobber
