Oprah may be one of the wealthiest women in the world, but she still has the same struggles as most women in America. Think we’re kidding? Oprah has been very open about her weight and self image issues in the past, and it seems to still be a work in progress for the self-made mogul! But Oprah has been looking better than ever these days, gracing the cover of her magazine, O. We wonder how Ms. Winfrey is getting it done though, since she openly went on her show in 2008 and told many of her loyal viewers know that she would never do another diet again! Regardless, Oprah has been looking fabulous.
