Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah's co-star in The Color Purple, remembers the first time she appeared as a guest on Oprah's show. "I think I was talking about The Long Walk Home, which I had done with Sissy Spacek," she says. "Now you come 20 years later and you go, 'Wow, it's kind of amazing. She's grown into Oprah Winfrey.' Twenty five years is a long time."
For her next step, Whoopi says Oprah should have some fun. "Oprah, get some rest. Do something you want to do. Go to Europe. Go to Paris. Have more fun. You need more fun, O. So do that," she says. "Because you earned it. And no one can say, 'What are you doing?' You have to just cut your eyes at 'em like this [and say], 'I'm relaxing.' That's all you have to say. Happy relaxation."
