James Frey rose to fame when Oprah Winfrey chose his memoir as a book club selection -- but she changed into a bitter critic when his book A Million Little Pieces turned out to be nothing more than a million little lies.

Now Oprah has revisited the author to find out how his life -- and attitude -- have changed since his very public humiliation. The verdict: Not much.

Frey is still rather unrepentant over what he did, and frankly thinks every memoirist does the exact same thing -- they just don't get caught.

"I don't have a whole lot of respect for the genre. I think most writers of memoirs, and this is a very unpopular statement, do what I did," Frey said on Monday's episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Oprah does not look amused. Watch a clip here:
