You can request topics at the Oprah website, I have requested a show on osteoporosis. But IBS and osteoporosis is not sex, fashion, or crime, therefore very unlikely to be programmed on Oprah.Char

As she said on her show today, the way to get people to hear you is through numbers. We would have to get all 16,000,or how ever many there are here, of us on this board to bombard her with E-mails and then she might take us serious.She has done shows on medical conditions like hepatitis, heart disease, touretts syndrome, to name a few that I remember watching. Most of her shows on sex are related to sex crimes which is good.

The BB tried approaching Oprah a few times - even before I was here (even Mike emailed her from the UK!) and I have emailed and snail-mailed her a few times as well as other talk-show folks - perhaps one day - Here, checkout our past attempts - http://ibsgroup.org/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/752.../m/36910005/p/1http://ibsgroup.org/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/742...910114#78910114This one links to other past attempts...http://ibsgroup.org/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/792...710007#76710007And if you are still willing:http://www2.oprah.com/index.jhtml

HERE THE TRICK.IMAGINE YOURSELF WORKING ON A OPRAH SHOW.YOU NEED TO FIND SOMEONE CREDIBLE,PERHAPS A IBS RESEARCHERS WITH SOME CLUES WHO COULD GO ON THE SHOW AND EXPLAIN WHAT IS IBS.OR/AND,YOU FIND A CELEB WITH IBS PERHAPS CYBILL SHEPPARD(AMAZING WOMEN CLUB).SO THE BEST SHOW IN MY OPINION WOULD BE:MARK PIMENTEL+DR.GHERSON+DR.DROSSMAN+CYBIIL SHEPPARD+JEFFREY ROBERTSTHIS WOULD BE SPECTACULAR AND THEY COULD NOT SAY NO.

Been there, done that - Mrs. "Frazier" - Kelsey Grammar's wife Camille was one that was on this BB for a while, then, ahem pooped out, I think we tried Wonder Woman, who's mom had it, but she was a pharma rep, I would love it if Ben Stein would help us - but he has been approached and doesn't talk about it much - then there is the British gal olympic person, and a few others who have IBS as far as "famous" celeb types. It is just very hard to get in touch with celebs - and I have had a few connections (though distant) in the past with some, and it is very hard to get into their inner circle - unless of course, it's Ozzie Osbourne, who almost got the key to a city (in Cananda) from some poser !!!
