oprahbtch.jpg Oprah Winfrey appeared at Maria Shriver's Women's Conference in Long Beach this week, and the talk show legend said her cable network will be "fun and entertaining without tearing people down and calling them bitches. Imagine that. Imagine."

Oprah has dreamed of this all her life, adding, "Growing up, I could never find my name on any of those license plates or lunch boxes. Now, I know what it was for -- to start my own network. A whole network, a whole channel that we're designing to carry the Oprah Winfrey message." After all that she's done (not to mention all the millions she's made) this seems like the next logical step to us!

But Winfrey (who was sued for plagiarism on Tuesday), says she knows things won't be perfect from the start. "I know that as I start out on this next chapter, there's going to be some mistakes," she said. "I know there's going to be some stumbles. I know I'm a work in process and progress. I know nothing new is perfect, but I'm not scared. I'm not afraid."
