Renee Pinckney, Production Assistant
Favorite job: Harpo—it’s my dream job! I’m new here, but I’ve been embraced as a member of the team.
Favorite Oprah: Where Are They Now? show guest: Elisabeth Glaser’s family. I was so inspired by how resilient she was, so it was great to get an update from her family.
Dream Oprah: Where Are They Now? guest: Jasmine Guy/Kadeem Hardison (Whitley and Dwayne from A Different World)—one of my all-time favorite TV couples!
Dream Oprah: Where Are They Now? dinner party: The cast members of my all-time favorite TV shows from the ‘90s—way too many to list! But just to give you a few: Sex and The City, The Cosby Show, Gossip Girl, Martin, Saved By The Bell, Boy Meets World, A Different World, etc.
Where was I when The Oprah Winfrey Show launched in 1986? Running around in diapers (I was 2 years old).
Favorite Oprah Show moment of all time: The Mary Tyler Moore moment, her interview with Nelson Mandela and when Oprah and Gayle lived like women in colonial times (I couldn’t stop laughing).
Fun fact: I’m a weird eater. I love to snack on unusual things like raw ramen noodles and cooking flour. I put hot sauce on just about everything. I also put my ice cream in the microwave.
What is your hidden talent or secret passion? I would love to write a book based on a fictional political family.
