Hours after Shamcey Supsup was named as Miss Universe 2011's 3rd runner-up, an alleged message coming from the 'Queen of Talk' Oprah Winfrey spread like a wildfire on the internet, stating that Shamcey Supsup is more deserving to be crowned as Miss Universe 2011 and not Miss Angola, Leila Lopes.

“I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point.”
I'm sorry to burst your bubble but Oprah Winfrey didn't actually say that.
Answering a query on the alleged statement, a moderator on Oprah's official website Oprah.com said Oprah has not issued "any comments of this nature."
OWNModerator13 responded: "There is no truth to the statement. Ms. Winfrey has not made any comments of this nature. Thank you for asking."
It seemed that a LOT of people are gullible these days. Sigh.
