‘Conan’ Gives Oprah’s First Audition Tape a “Hellish” Spin
The Queen of All Media had to start somewhere, so it seems particularly sweet that Oprah Winfrey decided to share her first audition tape with her millions (billions?) of fans as a bit of both inspiration and big laughs. She was so serious! She was so interested in spelling things! She was so ... demonically possessed?
At least, that's the version of the tape Conan O'Brien decided to share on 'Conan' last night. We have a feeling that the late-night host got, ah, a bit of an extended cut? But it sure helps clarify some things about Winfrey's rise to fame.
