Oprah Winfrey is the Queen of daytime television. When she decided to give away new cars to her whole audience, it was done. When she decided to film a few episodes in Australia, no questions asked. Normally, if she asks for something, people bend heaven and earth to get it for her, because she is Oprah after all. I’m willing to bet that whenever anyone is asked to be a guest on her show, there isn’t even hesitation before they agree, after all; it’s the Oprah Winfrey Show!
I’m guessing she doesn’t hear “no” very often, and if something goes wrong, her many staffers jump right in to sort out the mess before she lifts her very pampered head off her very expensive pillow and slips on her Manolo’s. And in a preview for an upcoming episode of the series, Season 25: Oprah Behind The Scenes, Oprah shows us why her staff don’t bother her with the minor details- she get’s mad, very mad!
Perez Hilton recently posted a clip of the show where Oprah loses her cool big time with Jennifer Hudson for daring to get stuck in Texas after a blizzard the day of her Oprah interview. (How dare she not make Oprah a priority?) Upon hearing the news Oprah says: “Excuse me, excuse me. What the hell is going on?! I’ve never heard of this in 25 years!”
Oprah then busts out her inner diva and stars barking orders at the executive producers of her show, while they awkwardly fumble their words trying to find a suitable response. She tells them to call the pilots (because apparently you can do that on private planes) and says to Eric Logan, Harpo President, “your whole day is backed up.” Yep, “your” whole day, not “ours” but only his. How’s that for delegating a problem?
Oh and she also makes sure she lets the audience know that critics have called the show “riveting” and “the ultimate treat.”
One things for sure, it sure did make me want to watch!
