7 things I learned from Oprah and her experts

At O Magazine’s annual O You! event, Oprah and her all-stars taught 5,000 people how to live their best lives.

From tips on organizing your cluttered home, to advice on taking charge of your personal finances – here are the CliffsNotes from Saturday's conference:

  • Unless you have a medical condition, you shouldn’t exercise on a flat treadmill. – Bob Greene, fitness expert
  • Women may fake orgasms, but men fake finances. – Suze Orman, financial expert
  • You don’t have to display the hideous vase your mother-in-law bought you. Be a ruthless editor of what you allow in your home. – Nate Berkus, design expert
  • Two-thirds of how you age is predicated on the lifestyle choices you make. The other one-third can be attributed to your genes. – Dr. Oz, health expert
  • Nude pumps are your best friend. – Adam Glassman, style expert/O’s creative director
  • There are two types of clutter: Memory clutter and I-might-need-it-one-day clutter. – Peter Walsh, organizing expert
  • Strength x strength x strength x strength = power. – Oprah

Tidbits like these, Oprah said, are close to her heart, which is why they mimic the content shared on OWN. And despite the network’s ratings troubles - TV By The Numbers reported that OWN's ratings are still down in comparison to Discovery Health's - Oprah isn’t discouraged.

“I don’t care what the media says about no struggling network,” she said. “I know who I am.”

    What I have learned from Oprah:

    1) all men are evil

    2) if there is a problem in the marriage and/or a relationship it is 100% the mans fault

    3) You are a total loser if you can't afford your own cook, trainer and army of people to keep you healthy and looking good

    4) Oprah is the zen messiah, please worship her aloof and enlightened greatness

    5) All books in the Oprah book club are aimed at house fraus and would bore any other interesting human being

    6) Your life will never be as interesting as Oprah's not matter how hard you try

    7) Too much TV is not healthy but you need to watch Oprah's network 24/7

    I learned years ago that Oprah is not all that. She is very rich, but she is not all knowing.
