Talk Show legend, mogul, and the queen of all media Oprah Winfrey is laying off 200 employees as she shuts down the iconic Harpo Studios in Chicago. She is taking all of her talents to Los Angeles, but all of her employees didn’t make the cut. The staff that she did retain has to decide if they will uproot themselves and their families to L.A. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this certainly isn’t a breakdown of Lady O’s empire, as Winfrey is looking to expand to newer horizons with her new three story building located in West Hollywood. Oprah stated, “The time had come to downsize this part of the business and to move forward.” We are sure that Winfrey will continue to excel with the OWN network and all other endeavors.
