Photo Friday: OPRAH!!!

Okay, so I know I twittered about the show all morning, but I just have to put up some photos from Oprah Live in NYC, which I was lucky enough to attend today with (l to r): Erin Meanley, me, Alison Lewis and Anne Ichikawa!!!
Alison got the good news that we were IN after we all signed up for a chance to get seats last week. We felt like we’d won a Golden Ticket! This is a BIG check mark on the Life Dream List for me.
First, after waking up at 5am and waiting in line to be seated for three hours, Erin and I are PSYCHED for the show to start:
The ladies next to us got creative to get noticed!
Regis and Kelly! (Adorable, and between takes, Kelly and Oprah talked shoes, and Kelly said, “You have a cobbler in the back who custom makes shoes for you, right?” Oprah said, “I haven’t gone that far!”)

Here’s Mariah with some superfans on stage. Later, Nick Cannon came to chat, and he and Mariah seemed genuinely in love–she was his celebrity crush. And Mariah hit her famous high C while performing “I Wanna Know What Love Is” (a Foreigner remake)!
The Book Club pick was Say You’re One of Them, short stories by Uwem Akpan.

Read Erin’s recap of the day on!
After the taping, Oprah told all of us in the audience that we honored her with our presence. She was gracious and kind and funny the whole time.
I found myself screaming when she first walked out, like you always see people in the audience doing. It’s easy to mock that behavior from your couch, but let me tell you: It is hard not to scream when you see Oprah and her gold microphone!
Have a great weekend!

    Wow that must of been so neat and fun! Your lucky to live in such a wonderful city (or state for that matter) nothing fun or neat ever happens where I live, so I’ll just have to admire all your fun times LOL.
