Chicago has great food, great people and great energy. But something very strange happened when I got to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” studio. After all my research and planning about what I might ask Oprah – the Harpo security staff confiscated my list! I know! Crazy, right?
They announced they would take our cell phones and cameras. I get that. But they also took my reporter’s notebook, my favorite mechanical pencil and my business cards! Maybe they thought I would rush the stage and ask for an autograph? Please – I’m a harmless list maker!
A few days before getting to Chicago– we were told we’d be viewing the new documentary called “I Am” by director Tom Shadyac before the show taping. We would be able to ask questions in an open-mic forum to Tom and OPRAH!!!!!! So I read as much as I could about the film on my flight from NYC to CHI. What can I say? I’ve always been an overachiever – which my husband will say is a euphemism for a nerd. Read more
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!!!! Read more
One of the most exciting things in my short life has happened! In just one week – I will be sitting in the audience of the Oprah Winfrey Show!!!!!! I’m sooooo excited! This moment is going to be really special for me because it’s been 18 years in the making. You see, Oprah is the reason I went into TV.
When I was just 13 years old – I was obsessed with “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and decided to write a letter to my hero. So I did. I got a response back on official “Oprah” letterhead along with an autographed photo.
Check out the letter I got back and the vintage “Oprah hair” in her picture.
