You’ll never guess who Oprah credits for her being so successful. Robin Williams! Oprah says an interview she did with Williams back in the day when they were both up-and-comers helped her land a top job.
Oprah has a new book out called O’s Big Book of Happiness, and reveals how her interview with Robin helped convince network executives to offer her her first talk show.
Oprah describes the interview as "five minutes of the most exhilarating, wild, off-the-charts minutes I'd ever spent in an interview with the most uninhibited, out-of-the-box, free-falling-in-every-second celebrity/human I'd ever met."
And TV bosses were so impressed with the interview that they took Oprah from the local TV station she was working at and hired her to co-host People are Talking with Richard Sher.
And just look at her now!
