After 17 years with The Oprah Show, senior supervising producer Andrea Wishom can finally tell the world two secrets about her boss. First, Oprah is funny. "There's no question you're hilarious," she says.

Andrea only learned the second secret about Oprah while in Europe for interviews with Lisa Marie Presley and J.K. Rowling. To kill time, Oprah and Andrea played a few games of Scrabble—and Oprah took no pity on Andrea. "It was my first time, and you were not letting me get by with my little three-letter words," Andrea says. "She is amazing at [Scrabble] and very competitive...particularly after a couple Moscow Mules."
