Oprah Says This Was the Worst Guest She Ever Had

Published

on

In Oprah Winfrey‘s 25 seasons and more than 4,500 episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show, she interviewed thousands and thousands of people, from the biggest stars to self-help experts to everyday people. Of course, all interviews are not created equal, but Winfrey tends to stay on the positive side of things when looking back on her time at Oprah. However, when she was on Harry in 2017, host Harry Connick Jr. was able to squeeze out some previously undisclosed information from the prolific interviewer herself. He even got Winfrey to talk about her most unsavory guest experiences. While she wouldn’t name names, Winfrey did say the worst guest she had on Oprah was someone far less high-profile than you’d imagine. For more on Winfrey’s worst guest, read on. And for another disastrous interview to remember, check out The Worst Guest “Today” Has Ever Had, Host Says.

“Has anyone been particularly annoying, where you’re just like, ‘Gosh, I can’t wait for this person to leave?’” Connick Jr. asked. “Well, you know, the worst kind of guest—you’ve had this, too—is when you ask them question and they start talking about 1975, and then you think, ‘Oh, we are in 2017. How long is it going to take us to get to 2017?’ That’s the worst,” she responded. However, that wasn’t all she had to say on the topic.

“The other worst guest, for me, are those who think whatever it is they’re talking about is so spectacular, and you know it’s not,” she said. Winfrey admitted that her “go-to word” for guests like that was just a simple—but seemingly inauthentic—”wow!”

She then went on to describe her truly least favorite guest experience, pointing to a lawyer who had gone on Oprah to promote his book. And promote it he did. “He mentioned the book 29 times. That’s after I started counting,” Winfrey explained. “Every sentence started. ‘In my book, in my book, and if you buy my book.’”

Winfrey said she finally got fed up with the self-promoting lawyer and called him out. “Finally, around the third segment, I said, ‘We all know the name of the book. Audience, tell him the name of the book…so you don’t have to say the name of the book anymore,’” said Winfrey. Luckily the interview turned around from there. “After that, we started having conversations.”

Here are more guests who had an awkward experience on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and for the most infamous voice to utter, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday night,” check out The Worst “SNL” Host of All Time, Cast Says.

Tesla Model 3 Saves Owner and Six Cats During Texas’ Deep Freeze and Blackouts

Tesla Model 3 Saves Owner and Six Cats During Texas' Deep Freeze and Blackouts-- Turning on Your Heater

Tesla Model 3 was able to save many car owners’ lives, including one family and their six cats. Texas suffers from frigid temperatures and rolling blackouts.

A Tesla Model 3, whose owner said he was curious to see the site, stands where the newly-announced Tesla Gigafactory is planned at Freienbrink on November 14, 2019 in Gruenheide, Germany. Elon Musk, CEO of U.S. electric automaker Tesla, announced two days ago that Tesla will build a European Gigafactory outside Berlin at Gruenheide, not far from the BER Willy Brandt Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport. The factory would be Tesla’s fourth and is to produce car batteries, parts and the Model 3 and Model Y cars.

Pete Holguin, a Tesla Model 3 owner, said that his electric vehicle was charged 90% before the Texas snowstorm arrived, making it possible for his Tesla Model 3 to help them, including their six feline pets, during the sudden deep freeze.

“When the temperature inside the house dipped below 50F, my wife and I put our six cats in their carriers and stacked them in the back seat of the EV in the garage. We have six rescue cats ranging in age from 3 to 16 years old,” explained Holguin via Electrek.

“The temperature in the garage was 33F. We ran the heater for eight hours in Camp mode one night and we were able to sleep in comfort at 69 degrees,” he added.

How Tesla Model 3 saved them

Holguin said that they only used 17% of their Tesla Model 3’s battery life within eight hours. He added that he and his family didn’t recharge their electric vehicle for three nights.

Tesla cars are displayed at a showroom in the Meatpacking district in Manhattan on June 6, 2018 in New York City. Tesla stock had its best day since November 2015 on Wednesday rising more than 9.5 percent after the company revealed it is nearing its Model 3 weekly production rate. Also, in a vote shareholders backed Elon Musk as chairman and CEO.

During the sudden Texas deep freeze, his garage’s temperature was 33F, thanks to his Tesla Model 3. He said that his car heater could heat their electric vehicle up to 69 degrees, allowing them to sleep in comfort even if the temperature outside is extremely cold.

On the other hand, another Tesla EV owner also relied on his car to survive during the storm. He said that he charged up both of his Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model X SUV to 90%.

He added that they activated their cars’ heaters so that they can sleep and spend the night until the temperature outside went back to normal.

Turning on your Tesla’s heater

According to NewsBytes‘ previous report, Tesla already updated its mobile app to allow the users to turn their cars’ heaters even when they are not using them. This means that they can activate it even if they are staying inside their house. This is a pretty useful feature since their cars can be warm inside before they even get inside it. All you need to do is go to your Tesla mobile app and search for your car’s heater.

Newly formed bitcoin mining operation Cipher Mining Technologies announced it will go public in a merger with blank-check company Good Works Acquisition. The deal values the combined entity at $2 billion.

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021. Upon closing, the combined companies will be named Cipher Mining and will trade under the Nasdaq ticker symbol CIFR.

Cipher Mining is a subsidiary of Bitfury Top HoldCo B.V or Bitfury Group. Since 2011, the Bifury Group has been a provider of bitcoin mining hardware and other blockchain software and services.

Oprah Finally Answers – This is Probably the Worst Guest I’ve Had on the Show in 25 Years

Published

on

During the pandemic, people are talking more than ever. With fewer things to do, podcasts and television shows with an interview format have become soapboxes for celebrities looking to spill the beans. While Hoda and Kathie Lee Gifford were eager to talk about the worst guest they ever hosted on the Today Show, Oprah Winfrey has now come forward to share the worst guest she ever encountered throughout her decades of talk show experience. Oprah filmed 25 seasons and more than 2,500 episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show. During that time, she welcomed a lot of people onto the program, but one guest stood out from all the rest as being the absolute worst of the bunch.

During an appearance on Harry, the host Harry Connick Jr. pulled some delightful information from Oprah that will surprise many of you. While talking to him, Oprah revealed some of the most disturbing secrets she had previously kept closed away inside of herself.

While Oprah did not name names, she did tell details about some of the most disturbing guests she had on her show throughout the years. The topic came up because Harry Connick Jr. knew how to push Oprah’s buttons and get her to talk about the controversial subject.

“Has anyone been particularly annoying, where you’re just like, ‘Gosh, I can’t wait for this person to leave?’” Connick Jr. asked.

Oprah jumped at the chance to speak.

“Well, you know, the worst kind of guest—you’ve had this, too—is when you ask them a question, and they start talking about 1975, and then you think.”

Although Orpah opened with a PC answer, she soon got into the juicier details.

“The other worst guest, for me, are those who think whatever it is they’re talking about is so spectacular, and you know it’s not,” she said.

Whenever Oprah had a guest like that, she’d employ one of her most famous catchphrases, “Wow!

Oprah admitted that her least favorite guest was a lawyer who got onto her show to promote a book.

“He mentioned the book 29 times. That’s after I started counting,” Winfrey explained. “Every sentence started. ‘In my book, in my book, and if you buy my book.’”

She added, “Finally, around the third segment, I said, ‘We all know the name of the book. The audience, tell him the name of the book…so you don’t have to say the name of the book anymore.’ After that, we started having conversations.”Throughout the years, Oprah has had some shocking moments with her guests. Among them are when Tom Cruise gushed about his girlfriend at the time, Katie Holmes. Instead of promoting his latest movie, he simply talked about his love and even jumped on the couch in excitement. James Frey, the author who faked his drug-fueled memoir, A Million Little Pieces, was eaten alive when Oprah found out his book was filled with lies.
