Take a look at why we're reaching for a cup of black coffee:
- Oprah said goodbye to millions of viewers yesterday. She recently opened up about her show during her ABC exit interview. The queen of all media talked about connecting with folks and what she'll miss. "We wanted to create a show that let people know that they were not alone. We wanted to tell the stories of people like ourselves so that I can see my story in you and I could feel struggles in my own through you. I miss my connection to a community that really embraced me in such a way that allowed this national platform of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to become what it is," she said. Simply heartwarming. Thank you, Oprah. Also, after the last show, she went to a private dinner at Chicago's Spiassia including Stedman and Gayle -- a total of 18 people were invited. [Necole Bitchie]
