HOprah Watch: Brings Porn Star/Lap Dancer to S. Africa to Teach Girls “Leadership” @ Oprah School

By Debbie Schlussel
I told you how, recently, how Oprah Winfrey brought a ten-year-old girl on her daytime talk show to give her a very graphic discussion of sex and sexual positions and urge her mother to buy her a vibrator (and all mothers to buy vibrators for their young daughters). I also told you how Oprah rewarded the girl for being subjected to this, by making her a “co-host” of an Oprah episode on kids with talent and giving her a gig as a “correspondent” covering her favorite pop music star.
But it gets worse. Now Oprah is exporting her own special brand of “Kinky for Kids” to South Africa, specifically to her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

Elizabeth Berkley (Far Right) w/Oprah and S. African Students
No worries that there have already been molestation and sexual assault cases at Oprah’s eponymous school. Now, she’s imported a woman most famous for stripping, “dancing” completely naked, performing lapdances, and pole-dancing in soft-core porn.
Yup, that’s Elizabeth Berkley–star of “Showgirls” (NC-17 on DVD) and not much else of note–in the picture below (from the July 6th issue of People) with girls who are students at the school which Oprah claims is training South Africa’s future leaders, er . . . future “exotic dancers.” The movie for which she’s most famous contains several scenes of rape, glorified simulated rape, and lesbianism, including this (NOT SAFE FOR WORK). Oprah brought her, along with actress Thandie Newton, to South Africa to “teach” the girls.
Wonder if she’s teaching ‘em this (the only videos from the movie that are slightly safe enough to post on this site):


Here is a re-enactment of some of the “Showgirls” lines she can teach the girls at the Oprah school (NOT SAFE FOR WORK).
And the movie has a great message for young girls: Sleep your way to the top to become a successful stripper. When that fails, push your competition down the stairway.
I wonder what the mothers of these poor, impoverished girls would think about this . . . if they only knew. But Oprah’s rules at the almost all-Black school (there is one White student paraded around for pictures with Oprah) are strict: parents aren’t allowed to have contact with the girls for most of the school year.
Instead, their contact is “carefully” regulated to a higher class of humans–ones like Elizabeth Berkley who take it all off and writhe on men’s laps for the cameras.
The Oprah Stripper Academy for Girls.
Full disclosure: when I was a kid, Elizabeth Berkley and I both took tap and jazz dancing lessons at Miss Barbara’s Dance Center, in the Detroit area, from where she hails. While our teach, Barbara Fink, publicly praised Berkley to People Magazine when the movie came out, privately she was embarrassed that this exhibitionist bimbo became her most famous student. But as I previously wrote about Berkley, that’s where the similarities end:

Her entire family moved to Los Angeles so this spoiled princess could live out her dream as an actress. And here’s something sicker than her horrid flick: her brother, who attended college in Michigan and is now a doctor, took his frat brothers to see his sister take it all off on the big screen.

Since Oprah’s new friend, Ms. Berkley is teaching the kids at her school, perhaps she can instruct them on the best inflection for these lines she famously uttered:

Hi, I’m Heather. Would you like to have a “private dance” with me?

And

I like having nice t-ts.

And Oprah has the nerve to criticize Springer. PUH-LEEZE.
When Oprah announced plans to build her school in South Africa, many American parties expressed dismay that she didn’t build it here.
They should thank their lucky stars that we were so fortunate she went elsewhere.

Debbie… it’s only a movie !!! Actresses are paid to play their roles. Don’t associate those roles with the real person.
[C: SO MAYBE OPRAH SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT JENNA JAMESON AND RON JEREMY ALONG, TOO. AFTER ALL THEIR PRODUCTS ARE “ONLY A MOVIE!!!” TOO. RIGHT? AND LARRY FLYNT’S PUBLICATION: “IT’S ONLY A MAGAZINE!!!” WANT THEM AND ELIZABETH BERKLEY TEACHING YOUR KIDS? DS]

Debbie–
The story around Hollywood at the time was that Elizabeth did not want to do “Showgirls,” but her parents convinced her to take to the role.

Hey knucklehead…if I may quote that great American Fibber McGee..JUST A MOVIE MY CLAVICLE! I guess you are someone who loves dealing in sleaze and think this is protected by the 1st amendment…WELL IT AIN’T!

NEPatriot on June 30, 2009 at 5:07 pm

why bring that sleaze on? She can’t even act

So.. you are saying anyone who has ever played a homicidal maniac in a movie is forever unfit to teach children as well? The Larry Flynt analagy is not correct because he IS the magazine. If it was the guy who produced or directed the movie, I would see your point. I’ve been a long time reader and a fan, and this was my very first comment. I agree with you on most issues… but just thought you were a tad out of line forever associating an actor with one role. If she has good intentions, let her be. (Now Oprah… that’s another story)

First of all that picture of the first lady or guy in the green jacket, is that head big or what? It looks like it was photo-shopped on.
Second MT.HOprah is teaching them to be high class whores. Maybe MT.HOprah should be investigated for child endangerment? Oh yeah she is the Queen and Obama is King. She can blow all her money in South Africa for all I care. I guess that is money less influencing America.
Berkley was in Saved By the Bell. Maybe she could do a reunion with that loser Screech. I hear he was into porn too. LOL!!

How did she get in? They don’t let white people in to oprahs school.

CAScreaming- I guess it’s the “inner ho” that counts the most LOL

Hey, Deb, look at the picture of Oprah in the middle, with Thandie and Elizabeth at right. Now, look to the left. Notice something very odd? The person’s head is bigger than the body and seem unusual in appearance, hugging the girl who’s hugging Oprah (look at the hand on Oprah’s stomach). Is that a man? Or a butch-type woman? Ugh.

I think most of you on here should take a moment and think before you write. Elizabeth Berkley is an actress just like any other actor/Actress that takes a role and embodies it. I didn’t see any reference made to Haley Berry and her scene in Monster’s Ball or to Denzel Washington’s character in Training Day but here is a twist, they both won awards for those roles. It seems to me that some of you on here are not very intelligent and extremely shallow. Your comments would be better suited for the tabloids that specialize in creating gossip and that good old Hollywood BUZZ.

I find Debbies comments to be quite hypocritical coming from someone who writes a column entitled “Debbie Does Politics”… a sly reference to a well known porn series.
