"Miss Philippines deserved to win", Oprah Winfrey is a hoax

Recently circulating within the world wide web and  blogsphere about the Queen of Talk's comment about the results of Miss Universe 2011.

"I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point." 

However, there is no verified source of the quote. I have searched the entire web and NBC NEWS but to no avail. I must admit this did brought a spur in twitter. I hope this gets verified as true or yet we can throw this in the tweet hoax bin among others.

UpdateOprah.com‘s OWN moderator has already clarified the issue after some of their members asked about it on their website.
