Oprah’s absence blamed for poor Weight Watchers’ results

The dieting company formerly known as Weight Watchers is hoping Oprah Winfrey will help it reverse a downward spiral — raising the question: Where the hell has she been?

The media mogul, who signed on as an investor, director and brand ambassador to the company in October 2015, has stepped back from promoting the brand in recent months — fueling speculation that her absence may have contributed to the company’s latest woes.

“Her presence has diminished,” ISS-EVA analyst Anthony Campagna told The Post. “It’s been a slow fade.”

Shares of the company, which changed its named to WW in September, plummeted nearly 35 percent, to $19.37, on Wednesday after it said its growth has slowed and it expects to have fewer members in 2019 than the 3.9 million it counted at the end of 2018.
