In a recent post, I foretold that things were going to get ugly concerning James Frey and his lack of remorse concerning the untruths he told in his book, “A Million Little Pieces.”
Well, it’s officially ugly now.
Oprah confronted Frey on a LIVE show today, asking him how he could basically dupe her and millions of others who read his supposedly “true” raw and poignant tale of drug addiction. She was at times both visibly angry, and in tears.
Come to find out, James Frey lied. About his past; his stint in a prison; his “bad attitude” image. Pretty much everything.
As her way of disassociating herself with Frey, Winfrey apologized to her viewers immediately on the show, and said that her phone call defense of the author on the Larry King Show was wrong, and that she was misled by his entire story.
The Smoking Gun revealed Frey’s fictional story a few weeks back. When asked about what they wrote, Frey stated, “Most of what they wrote is pretty accurate.”
Wow. What a reversal. On Winfrey’s part, on James Frey’s part.
As always, the truth comes out. One way or another, God sees to that. It’s a shame that Frey thought he could make tons of money and gain fame by lying; but satan has a habit of whispering to us and makes us believe his lies in their entirety.
Let’s all pray that James Frey will now come clean with his story, ask for forgiveness, and come to know Jesus as his personal Savior.
