Oprah: Launching OWN Was 'Much Harder'<br> Than I Thought
Media queen Oprah Winfrey stopped to chat with "Extra" Thursday at OWN's reception for the Television Critics Winter Press Tour -- and dished all about the launch of her new network and what a struggle it's been.
"Harder, much harder. Much harder!" Winfrey replied when asked if she thought launching OWN was going to be easier or harder than she expected.
"All along I was saying it's a launch. It's not the raisin' of the baby, it's just the birthin' of the baby," the talk show host explained. "And now we gotta get the clothes and get the babies to school. You gotta build, build, build."
After all her hard work, you'd think Oprah would take a break, but not quite yet, she says. "Originally, I had thought I was going to end the 'Oprah' show and take a little cruise for myself... and it's the opposite. So I'll be vacationing around 2014."
