I was excited about my trip to the Oprah Winfrey show before – but now I’m REALLY excited. You see – my friends and I got another email from Oprah’s producers about our taping.
Oprah’s staff first emailed us last week to tell us the date of our taping had changed! So we had to scramble to change our plans and pay extra fees to change our flights. I’ll admit I was a little annoyed but the optimist in me thought, “this is because we are being put in a more fabulous audience.” As I said in the blog post I wrote for MyLifeList.org — I love the “The Secret” — what can I say?
Fast-forward four days. FACT – we are being put in a more fabulous audience!!!!
The most recent email says we’re invited to a screening of the documentary “I Am,” before our Wednesday taping. We’ll be discussing it on the show. They said this show taping would be a little different from their normal shows.
Now this is where it gets really good…it also says:
The audience you will be in will have a rare chance for its members to speak directly with and ask questions to Oprah.”
And there it is!!! I will, in fact, be able to speak to Oprah Winfrey on Wednesday!!!!! OMG! Now I need to prepare! You know I made a list, of course.
As a journalist – research is my thing…so I’ve been doing my homework about this documentary. I watched the trailer for it and it looks amazing and right up my alley. It was released in March, so if you’ve seen it – please let me know your thoughts.
I’m now formulating NEW questions to ask Oprah – as the latest email says,
“Audience participation is crucial! (And you may get to be on TV!) This show will be an open-mic forum for all to participate….”
I’ll be tweeting and blogging about this up until the Harpo people take my cell phone away before the taping! Apparently that’s what they do.
Thank you to all who wrote in and tweeted about my last blog and gave me recommendations for restaurants and questions for Oprah. Now that we have more info – please help me with my latest homework assignment so I can speak to Oprah for sure!
