Oprah Winfrey on turning 60 "through with the bullsh!t"

My love for Oprah Winfrey is no secret. I love the fact that not only she is a SUPER successful media mogul but I love the side of the talk show legend that is all about her tequila shots and uses bad words. My kinda gal!

People Magazine recently caught up with Mama O about asked her what she thought about turning 60 a week ago. Check out what she said:

"First I thought this: I thought about all the people who didn't make itI thought about when I was 48 and having heart palpitations and I thought I was dying, but it was really just the beginning. Really I was just perimenopausal," she said. "I thought about 9/11. I thought about all the people who got up and they took their dogs out the same way I did. They made their coffee. They made their tea. They put their robes on, and they went off for the day. And they never made it, and they were 22, and 37, and 48, and 52, and they never would ever see 60. So, I thought about that."  

"I thought how remarkable [it is] I've had this amazing life. I get to be here in this town ( Montecito). Eventually, I will be able to call it home ... And what's great about 60 is you are through with the bullsh–t, it means you are really and truly through." 

"Now, Camille Cosby had told me at 40 that happens, but 40 you're still ... in the race, you're still competitive. And at 50, you're still like, 'Do I need to?' 60? You are chilled. You are chilled, and you have nothing to prove, and you can sit above that perch with a sense of knowing that you are who you want to be, inside and out, and it's good. Life is good. 60 and a week, baby!"

LOVE it!!
