Stars Who Were Fired

11 of 15

Oprah

How would you like to be known as the person who fired Oprah? When Oprah was starting out as an evening news anchor for Baltimore’s WJZ-TV, she was fired for becoming too emotionally involved in the stories. Leave it to Oprah to turn getting fired into a million bucks ... she was given a day time position shortly after (which was considered a huge step down in the news world), and turned the opportunity into the "Oprah Winfrey Show."
