If you disclose anything bad about your life, a person with Oprah Winfrey Syndrome will say they had it happen to them too. One day a guest on the Oprah show disclosed being sexually molested Oprah disclosed that it had happened to her too. Another day a guest disclosed using Cocaine, and Oprah said she did too. I'm not saying that Oprah and other's with this condition are lying, but they always seem to have a story of hardship that is equal, if not worse, than the one you just told.
here is an example of the Oprah Winfrey Syndrome
Suzy: I don't know what I'm going to do I just lost my job.
Pam: Girl, I just lost my job too, and I found out I'm not eligible for unemployment!
