Cindy Crawford Didn’t Like The Way Oprah Treated Her Back in ’86
30 years later and it still stings
Cindy Crawford didn’t like the way Oprah treated her back in ’86 and she has never forgotten it. You would think that by now she would have forgotten or forgiven but it sure doesn’t look that way.
She was BRAND NEW and 19 years old when she appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1986. And looking back on it now, she doesn’t like the way Oprah treated her.

On that new Apple TV+ series “The Super Models”, Cindy says, quote, “I was like the chattel or a child, like be seen and not heard.

Those people were mostly not celebrity types, but just regular people that went on the show to discuss whatever was going on that made them interesting enough to be on the show. It is the very rare celebrity to call her out on being exploited. When someone with the caliber of Cindy Crawford says she didn’t like the way Oprah treated her back in ’86, it makes the news.
