    Charla wanted to do the show, she wanted to reveal her face in that manner. I see absolutely no exploitation.

    And if she got paid? ****ing fantastic! She desperately needs the money, so I hope they paid her a lot. If anyone else is interested in helping this woman out financially, you can do so at her trust site:

    I have no issue with this woman appearing on a television show, if that is her desire. She is a grown woman, after all, so how is it possible to exploit her without her participation and consent?

    i have no problem with her being paid. and i didn't use the word exploitation, i used sensationalist, which oprah is.

    there's a difference.

    Of course it's exploitative. Compare what Oprah paid this woman to have her on her show to the money Oprah will make because of her.

    Re: Is Oprah being exploitative to have chimp-mauled Charla Nash on her show?

    Oprah isn't en par with Maury Povich's level of depravity, but all talk shows use the same tricks to lure in viewers for ratings. I find the cult following surrounding Oprah incessant and annoying. I know she brings interesting issues to the table and that sets her apart from the other talk shows, but the way her followers preen over her and take her word like scripture is irritating. She is just a celebrity like all the rest.

    The idea of her being put in the history books for school material is also unacceptable. She's a billionaire with wide reaching powers though so who knows what she's capable of.

    Didn't Charla wanted to go see the Chimp her friend had as a pet? Why is she suing her ex-friend for 50mil when Charla went willingly?

    I was wondering that myself. She claims she was aware the chimp had erratic behavior and had warned her friend, yet she continued the relationship and went to the house to assist when the friend called her for help.

    It's so horrible what happened to her, but it sounds like Charla, herself, made a poor decision.

    No idea, and not sure how it's relevant.

    It's relevant because the chimp-mauled woman discussed the subject with Oprah, and it's relevant to her case against her former friend who owned the chimp.

    Now, if I had a friend with an animal that I thought was dangerous, I would personally find a new friend and stay away from the animal that I considered dangerous. That would be more sensible than going to try to help get the animal under control when it's behaving erratically.
