OPRAH'S FITNESS BOOK TO $ET NONFICTION RECORDOprah is notorious for shedding tonnage and then gaining it all back. Rumor has it her publisher, Simon & Shuster, is rushing the book into print before she gets pudgy again. I don't blame them.

What I'm wondering, though, is how she can possibly consider herself a fitness expert simply on the basis that she's managed to get herself down to within 30 pounds of her target weight.
And shouldn't her team of fitness coaches be writing the book? Just asking.
