Oprah Winfrey's holiday wish this year is definitely not a suit.
The talk-show queen is asking a federal court in Philadelphia to toss a defamation lawsuit brought by the ex-principal of Winfrey's South African girls school over remarks made in the wake of molestation allegations.
Nomvuyo Mzamane is seeking more than $250,000 in damages for remarks Winfrey made insinuating that Mzamane failed in her duty as the head of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls after a dorm matron was accused of assaulting and abusing six students last year.
"I thought she cared about the girls of South Africa," Winfrey said at the time.
