Oprah to take back all her favorite things?
Oprah joined Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday night after the Academy Awards as a special guest on his seventh annual “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards.”
Kimmel described how he felt upon first meeting Winfrey earlier this week.
“About 20 minutes in, I decided I would give my life for Oprah,” Kimmel said, jokingly. “If Oprah needed my lungs, she could have both of them. She’s like a magic person, she really is.”
I think people tend to forget that Oprah is a tremendous actress.
Pitching Oprah about a few potential new shows for the OWN network, Jimmy suggests taking back her favorite things.
“You know how much they cried when you gave them that stuff – think how much they’ll cry when you take them back.”
Next up, The Jimmy and Oprah Interview. Kimmel and Oprah attempt to interview Jennifer Aniston at the same time. The result is hilarious.
Oprah concludes saying, “I think, two hosts asking questions at the same time, that might be too confusing.” Kimmel quickly answers, “What about ‘The View?’ They have eight people asking questions at the same time and that works.”
Winfrey also talked about her first trip to the Oscars in 1986, when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction.
“When I went to the Oscars, it was one of the most horrible nights of my life,” the television legend said of her first visit to the Academy Awards, representing “The Color Purple,” in 1986.
“I had used Dolly Parton’s dressmaker. And he’d come over to [do] some fitting earlier in the day and then said, ‘I need to take it back.’
“When he brought it back, I didn’t try it on. So when I went to put it on half an hour before going to the Oscars, it didn’t fit. I couldn’t get it up over my hips. So my hairdresser… had to lay me on the floor and push my butt down and zip and so I rode to the Oscars, really no exaggeration, planked in the back of a limousine.”
The birth of planking.
