Oprah's South African School Hit With Another Sex Scandal

Oprah's South African School Hit With Another Sex Scandal

Oprah's attempt to clean house at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy School For Girls after a 2007 scandal didn't save her from another round of shocking headlines coming out of South Africa. This time, the scandal doesn't involve an employee of the school, but rather students engaging in lesbian liaisons.

Seven students from Oprah's all-girls school in South Africa have been suspended for inappropriate behavior toward other students. One student was suspended for preying on another, while the others are in trouble for consensually touching each other intimately. I bet they didn't figure the whole world would find out.

Do you think Oprah should take some of the blame in the media for the latest scandal, or do the suspensions prove that the school enforces its code of conduct?

Ridiculous story.. I went to an allgirls boarding school (in England) and i can assure you this is very common place. The media is overreacting because it is Oprahs school!

Celebrity status brings closer scrutiny. Of all people, Oprah understands and accepts that even if we all don't. It in no way minimizes the positive influence she has on the lives of these students. And no, students should not engage in sexual liaisons of any orientation at school, nor should preying upon others be tolerated.

The only reason that oprahs school is being singled out is because, for on shes rich, two she doesn't need that publicity cause then her sales will go down and three, shes famous for millions and building a school. Wow what an accomplishment...who cares..why don't we out that money toward the girls and guys the get sexually abused everyday, the kids that have no homes, the many millions of people that get raped each day, and the people we set free on the streets that are going to harm again. why don't we deal with those issues. Notsaying that children doing those things aren't bad and they should be talked to and there parents should be aware. But it seems like everyone is fixated on the celebritys. i'd like to see one good thing everyday done for the victims.

I think it matters because these girls are children and the school should probably not allow them to be having sex. But I agree with everybody else who says these 'scandals' are not uncommon at any school.

if its consensual and not in public why does it matter?

rofl @ CG's comment. Honestly, I don't think Oprah should get blamed for this. If anyone should be blamed, it's God. Didn't he allow this to happen?

They probably saw her and Gail together and thought it was okay.

I wonder if any of the girls used the cell phones Oprah gave out with her number on speed dial after the first scandal (I'm thinking more towards the girl who was preyed on).

I agree with Hypno - this isn't an unusual situation to run into at a school.

Good points hypno. And it's just being singled out because Oprah's name is attached.

"One student was suspended for preying on another, while the others are in trouble for consensually touching each other intimately" How is this any different than what goes on in your typical American Jr.High/High School. It certainly went on when I was in school and that was in the 80's. Now I don't condone the behavior but why single out Oprah's school when it's going on here in our neighborhoods every day? Address the issue if we're going to address the issue but to single out a school is ridiculous.
