Oprah Brings Her 'Favorite Things' To OWN
One of the most popular recurring themes Oprah Winfrey ever had on her show had to do with her "Favorite Things," which quickly became audience members' favorite things right around the time they all realized they would be getting them for free, and now Oprah has brought a "Favorite Things" television special to her OWN network.
On Sunday night, Oprah's show honored military spouses — 30 wives and one husband — with gifts that were dear to Oprah's heart. "There's nobody in the world more deserving of a day like you're about to have," said Oprah to the group, whom she thanked for "the hard work and the sacrifice and the love and the care and the vision that you hold."
Then the gifts started flowing. "There's nothing that I love more than sharing what I love with other people," she said. "It's just so darn fun for me." This time Oprah "shared" a Tory Burch "Michelle" tote, a Bose HD television, a Tempur-Cloud Supreme Mattress, high-tops, bangles, an espresso machine, a Dyson Pedestal Fan, exercise equipment and makeup galore.
But the icing on the cake was a five-night, all-expenses paid trip for two to Fiji's Namale Resort and Spa, which was awarded to each of the spouses. "Many people here never had a honeymoon," Oprah reasoned as part of the inspiration behind the getaway grand prize.
You can check out Oprah's favorite things in the December issue of O. The special will also re-air on OWN this Friday, November 23, at 9 p.m. EST.
