With nine cameras in The Oprah Winfrey Show studio, every moment—before and after the show—is captured on tape. Each week, millions of viewers see just some of what happens on set. Now, Oprah shares some unscripted moments that never made it on air.
Just moments before introducing Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher, Oprah narrowly avoided an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction. Kelly, Oprah's stylist, dashed on stage as the show began and pointed out something white that was poking out from under Oprah's leather top. "You know what this is...this is my tissue!" Oprah says. "No, I was not stuffing my breasts. Believe me—I have enough."
Oprah says she put tissues under her armpits to protect her top from deodorant marks. "Somebody said, '[This is] a model trick,'" she says. "They didn't say you would be seeing it through your clothes!"
