NEW YORK (AP) — Oprah Winfrey is going on a diet again, but this time she stands to gain a lot of money from her efforts.
Weight Watchers said Monday that it signed a five-year deal with the former talk show host. Winfrey, a co-owner of OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, is paying about $43.2 million for a 10 percent stake in the weight loss company.
The deal is already paying off: Weight Watchers shares nearly doubled after the partnership was announced.
