An insincere, public apology given by a celebrity to the world via an Oprah Winfrey interview. It can last anywhere from 2-3 hours and usually involves crying, hugs, pleas to fans to understand, excuses, justifications, promises to not let us down again, etc. The intent of the Oprapology is not to actually apologize, but to seek Oprah's blessing for forgiveness and salvage an already-ruined reputation.
Lance Armstrong gave an Oprapology for using performance-enhancing drugs to build a successful international cycling career, and for adamantly lying about it for years.
