Oprah Winfrey drew tens of thousands of Atlantans to her “O You!” empowerment conference at the Georgia World Congress Center in 2011.

The iconic talk show host and OWN cable network namesake returns to Philips Arena for a new two-day “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend” Sept. 5 and 6, part of an eight-city tour sponsored by Olay and Toyota.

Tickets, which go on sale April 7 at 10 a.m. at www.oprah.com/tour, start at $99. In addition, VIP experience, concierge and gift bag opportunities will be available at higher prices.

On Friday, Winfrey will take the stage, bringing her personal story and insights to life. On Saturdays, Oprah will lead a day-long gathering featuring handpicked thought leaders and pop culture icons including Iyanla Vanzant, star of OWN’s hit series “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” regular O Magazine contributor, best-selling author and spiritual life coach; best-selling author of “Eat Pray Love,” Elizabeth Gilbert; and one of Time 100’s Most Influential people, Pastor Rob Bell.  More names will be announced as the day gets closer.

No offense to Oprah, but if I hear one more freakin' millionaire tell me how to live life to the fullest and be great, I'm gonna, well, do nothing--just be mad! Look, give me a about $20 million, Oprah, and I'll show people how to have a fulfilled life, too!! I have a better idea. How 'bout she sponsors a two-day seminar with a bunch of homeless bums, poor single moms who don't know the kid's (kids') daddy(ies), a bunch of 20-year-old high school dropouts with arrests records, and Democrats and show people what NOT to do if you want to live a fulfilled life! Oh, she can accept EBT cards for ticket sales.
