| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Oprah Winfrey has yet to comment on Herman Rosenblat and his debunked story of meeting his future wife in a Nazi concentration camp. But a brief disclaimer has been added to the Chicago-based talk show host's Web site, which still devotes substantial space to the Rosenblat romance.

"On December 27, 2008, Herman Rosenblat admitted to fictionalizing portions of his life story, including how he met his wife. Based on this admission, the publisher of his forthcoming memoir -- 'Angel at the Fence' -- canceled plans to print his book."

Rosenblat's story is listed on the site as an example of "Love Lessons From Amazing Couples."

When asked why it wasn't removed from the site, Winfrey spokeswoman Angela DePaul referred to the update posted by "the Oprah.com editorial team" and declined further comment. AP
