View Full Version : Oprah Falls For Another False Memoir

Unfortunately for Oprah Winfrey, some stories really are too good to be true.

Herman Rosenblat's memoir, "Angel at the Fence," deemed by Winfrey as "the single greatest love story" (http://www.oprah.com/slideshow/oprahshow/slideshow1_ss_rel_20071114) she's ever featured on her show, may now be coined by some as the single phoniest love story (http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=6537144), after the author admitted he fabricated the story of how he and his wife met at a Nazi concentration camp.

They did not, as Rosenblat falsely wrote in the book, meet at a concentration camp during World War II, where Rosenblat claimed his wife had thrown him apples and bread over the barbed-wire fence that separated them.

In reality, Rosenblat and his wife, Roma, were set up on a blind date in New York years after the war was over.
