Wednesday marked the final Oprah Winfrey show, which came to a close after 20 years. The iconic chat show is famous for drawing in the biggest names for interviews, and surprising guests with generous gifts from Oprah herself.
However the surprise on Wednesday was that Oprah kept things simple. She said;
“There will be no makeovers, no surprises — really, no surprises,” she told her studio audience. “You will not be getting a car or a tree. This last hour is really about me saying thank you.”
There were celebrations outside of the show itself though, with a star-studded, two-part Oprah-fest Monday and Tuesday at the United Center in Chicago.
