Stern Sounds Off
Daily Mail reported that during his radio show on Monday, Stern marveled at how Oprah “loves showing off” her $2.5 billion lifestyle and is “not embarrassed” by it at all.
“Oprah’s not embarrassed by her wealth at all,” he continued, adding that those who follow Oprah on social media “see her estates, her gardens, the people who service her.”
“Service her? She’s not a car,” Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers chastised him.

Stern Doubles Down
Not stopping there, Stern said that Oprah “knows” how to be wealthy and “likes” showing it off.
“Which is something I’m not comfortable with,” he said. “I don’t think that people should show off their wealth.”
Quivers continued to disagree with him, saying, “Oprah’s just showing you her life. She’s not showing off.”
Stern, however, was not having any of it.
“You gotta be a little self-aware and know that there are people struggling out there, Robin. You got to,” he stated. “You gotta kind of think about people who don’t have — to eat. You know what I’m saying? I mean, come on. You gotta be a little bit aware of this.”
“Well, if you don’t show your wealth, are they getting fed?” Quivers responded.
“No, they are not,” Stern responded. “But I make a good living, and I’m having trouble watching Oprah. I go, ‘wow. Look what’s going on over there?’ Her estate is unbelievable. When she goes shopping, she goes shopping in her backyard cause everything is growing back there. There’s a farm back there.”

Stern Praises Oprah For Her Charity Work
Stern did, however, make a point of praising Oprah for the work that she’s done through her The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, noting that she invited students to her home for Thanksgiving.
“Every Thanksgiving she welcomes the African gals at her boarding school in Africa for girls — I guess whose parents abandon them,”‘ he said. “And she takes them in and they call her like ‘Mama’… and all the African women come up to her estate and they start singing.”
“I think [the girls] believe Oprah’s God because she gives them an education,” he added. “She gives them meals, don’t ask. They love her. And it’s impressive. I gotta be honest. I mean, it’s real charity work.”
