The cross-country road trip Oprah and Gayle took in 2006 is a viewer favorite, and senior supervising producer Lisa Morin says there is one specific moment that stands out to her.
While looking for a hotel for Oprah and Gayle to stay in while driving through Arizona, Lisa and associate producer Ann Lofgren found the perfect place: the Wigwam Hotel.
After 12 long hours on the road, Oprah and Gayle arrived at their tepee. "You weren't in a very good mood when you saw the wigwam and the tepee motel—your reaction was one of my favorite authentic moments," Lisa says to Oprah.
"Yes, because my reaction was, 'You think I'm sleeping here?'" Oprah says. "I went in that wigwam, [and] there wasn't a window!"
