Oprah Winfrey

OWN Was a MISTAKE

Oprah Winfrey rues the day she ever launched the Oprah Winfrey Network -- claiming the entire operation was one giant mistake ... doomed from the get go.

The Big O appeared today on "CBS This Morning," confessing she might not have created OWN if she could do it all over again -- "The idea of creating a network was something that I wanted to do. Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else."

She added, "If I knew then what I know now, I might have made different choices. If I were writing a book about it, I could call the book '101 Mistakes.'"

As we previously reported, OWN has been struggling BAD -- chopping a large chunk of network employees last month ... right after it was forced to cancel Rosie O'Donnell's show.

I am very grateful she took a chance and is still taking a chance for it saved my life. It was her show that shed some insight on a problem I had for years. My whole life changed from going on her show. She has nothing but good intentions and until you actually meet someone in person never judge them by what you read or see on tv. I remember when I was a really negative person like half the remarks I read on stuff like this and I just shake my head in shame for I was once so ignorant and did the same thing ~
