In an interview with Piers Morgan, Oprah cites the box office failure of Beloved as the catalyst for her headfirst dive into a pile of mac and cheese. In a related story, Kraft mac and cheese cites Oprah as the catalyst for their huge 3rd quarter profits.
According to the talk show host: "When I heard I was beaten by Bride of Chucky, I told my chef to make 30 pounds of mac and Cheese."
This development has led me to really, really like Bride of Chucky. In addition, it sparked my curiosity. Surely, Oprah can't be the only high=powered figure to engage in binge-eating as a coping mechanism. I did some research and found the secrets of other public figures. take a look.
