Oprah Winfrey reveals 'guilty pleasure'

Oprah Winfrey says reading Fifty Shades of Grey is her "guilty pleasure".

The TV personality has admitted she is enjoying the best-selling erotic book series.

The 58-year-old mogul explained her reading list also goes hand-in-hand with her new favourite hobby.

"Oh I have downloaded all the Fifty Shades of Grey novels and for the first time I can take some guilty pleasure and just read. But I'm thinking, stop with the story, get to the juicy part!" Oprah gushed in an interview with Harper's Bazaar. "Bathing is my hobby. I love creating bathing experiences - bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milks…"

In January 2011 Oprah launched her new channel called OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on American cable TV. The host, presenter and producer struggled with the new venture. Oprah says the problems she faced setting up the channel were solved once she could devote more attention to the project.

"What was missing from OWN was me," Oprah laughed. "It required my full-on energy. You know, this past year has been challenging, but it's also been one of the greatest experiences for me getting to know me. What do you do when you don't have the wind at your back?"
