We were there at 7 am, we got shuffled through the crowd and luckily were VIP’s so our party’s name was called first to sit down cuz it was packed in there. You have to wait a little over an hour before they take you into the set but they fed us which was cool.
Oprah looked good though, it’s funny, she had 3 people swarming around her before and in between breaks fixing her makeup, clothes and putting on her shoes. She looked a little tired for this first show but then we found out she was doing 3 shows that day and we actually got to stay for a second taping as well!
That was kinda cool – two for the price of one!
It was interesting to see all that went into the taping of one show and all the people it takes to do it. It was a fun experience.
They gave us one of the books that they promoted on the first show which was “Eat This, Not That”; it’s about food substitutions. We only could take photos outside the studios so I’ll have to post those when I got home.
The rest of this day I spent actually by myself, shopping, eating and drinking all over Chicago! Did you know Oprah had a store? It was like the Disney Store but all Oprah, mostly sweats and tshirts types of clothes, foreign made products and Oprah gifts – of course I had to buy a few things for myself and a few of my favorite women….
Today I’m off to the local eWomenNetwork GLOW event with one of my clients who lives here, Marina Collazo – I’ll show her pic later too! (I don’t have my cord to download pics with me….boo hoo).
Have a great day!!!
