    Just for some of you Oprah is number 420 in the richest people in the world and in worth 2.7 billion dollars. she is not on of the richest people in the world. Sure she does a lot of good things for us and uses her money for the needy but she is not the richest person in the world like some of you think. she isn’t even the richest female in the world.
