Oprah Ticks Off Homeless Guys in Chef Case

6/7/2010 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The homeless guys who exposed an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving a Food Network chef are pissed off at Oprah Winfrey -- claiming they deserve to be on her show ... not Juan-Carlos Cruz.

As we previously reported, Oprah has already reached out to Cruz in an attempt to land an interview from jail -- but she hasn't reached out to the homeless men who alerted cops about his alleged plan to have his wife killed ... and they're bitter.

According to Homeless Shane (pictured above) -- he and his band of "Homeless Heroes" feel snubbed that O would "rather interview some lame chef instead of three homeless guys that helped save someone's life."

So far, Cruz has not responded to Oprah's request for an interview. The homeless guys tell us they're still more than willing to fill in.

i agree, Oprah is know to be two faced and to speak out both sides of her mouth. She wouldn't have Chris Brown on her show but she she booked Bebe Winans months after his domestic violence charge. Oprah is akin to a Priest spoken of on the bible, the ones who say it but don't practice it.

Oprah's sleaziest move yet. She ought to put on these heroes and give them a lot of dough. I can't stand the way she lies about not paying people. She ought to!!!

bitch please    

Oprah's ego is as big as her ass. I knew she was a phony years ago when she snubbed a friend of mine who was trying to take a drink order from her. My friend was very polite and addressed her as "Ms. Winfrey" as her boss instructed. Apparently FAT ASS didn't want any of the lowly staff calling her "Oprah". She had her assistant answer that she wanted an ice water.



Seriously Oprah is cut throat self serving bitch. How else does an over-weight black woman claw her way to the top in the 80s and 90s? She might be a hard worker and savy business woman, but her feel good pieces are for HER to make money, make no mistake about it. I quit watching that fat ass years ago.



The homeless guys in this story DO deserve a whole lot of credit. At least TMZ is giving them credit, which I think is great.
