BOSS MOVES: Oprah Winfrey Makes $70 Million in ONE Day, Ching Ching!

Oprah Winfrey is the definition of a true boss chick and a baller!

The 61-year-old media mogul is going on a diet again AND getting paid for it. Not only did she try Weight Watchers out, but she also bought a 10 percent share of the weight loss company on Monday (Oct. 19) which earned her around $70 million yesterday, according to news reports.  

Weight Watchers said Monday that it had signed a five-year deal with the former talk show host.
“Weight Watchers has given me the tools to begin to make the lasting shift that I and so many of us who are struggling with weight have longed for,” Winfrey said in a statement. 

Oprah, who is worth an estimated $3.1 billion, according to Forbes, reportedly paid $6.79 per share on Monday, investing a total of $43.2 million in the company and the stock shot up more than 100%, to $13.67 by mid-day.

Oprah will also be taking a seat on the New York-based company's board of directors. She has agreed to let Weight Watchers use her name, image and likeness for its products and services. In addition, she will make appearances on the company's behalf.

Weight Watchers announced it will expand beyond weight loss to include an emphasis on overall health and happiness. 

Wow! Congrats to Oprah on her boss moves!
