Donnell says he drew some of his female energy from Oprah. "I always told my wife, 'All women have an inner Oprah inside,'" Donnell says. "What I mean by that is in times of need or in trouble, or when you need to call on something, you call on [Oprah], you know? A little bit of [Oprah]. She's in school right now, so when she gets stressed out I say. 'What would Oprah do?' And it always helps her."
