Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has revealed that she doesn't feel guilty about her lavish lifestyle because she has earned it.

"I'm not one of those people like, 'Well, we must renounce ourselves.' No, I have a closet full of shoes and it's a good thing," she was quoted as saying by People’s magazine.

"I was coming back from Africa on one of my trips and had taken one of my wealthy friends with me.

She said, "Don't you just feel guilty? Don't you just feel terrible?" I said, "No, I don't. I don't know how me being destitute is going to help them'. Then I said when we got home, 'I'm going home to sleep on my Pratesi sheets right now and I'll feel good about it'," Oprah added.
